Review Center Performance Improvements
This release features the first in a series of performance and scale improvements as we continue to align the usability and depth of capability in Jama Connect with the explosive growth of our customers' adoption and usage. In Jama Connect 8.69, users will experience a significant reduction in time to open an existing review in Review Center. While users will experience appreciable improvements in reviews of any size, larger reviews of 250+ items will see remarkable improvements in load times.
Performance and usability guidance
With this release, additional guidance messages have been added throughout Jama Connect. These messages are informational only and won't prevent you from completing the intended action.
These messages are designed to:
- Notify you when an action might have an unintended performance or usability impact.
- Provide insights into how the application can be used more efficiently.
These messages now appear when you attempt to:
- Create a baseline with more than 1,000 items
- Delete more than 500 items at a time
- Send a notification to a large group of recipients
Note: Additional performance warning messages for the Review Center and project duplication were added in the previous release. For more information, see the Jama Connect 8.68 Release Notes.
