SCIM Provisioning for Group Management

This release builds on the new System for Cross-Domain Identity Management (SCIM) workflows for user management that were introduced in Jama Connect 8.74. Your organization can now automatically provision groups from Okta into Jama Connect. 

With SCIM group management, you can:

  • Create new organization-level groups
  • Read existing org-level group membership
  • Update org-level group membership (add/remove)
  • Delete org-level groups

In addition to SCIM support for Okta, Jama Connect now includes SCIM support for Microsoft Azure AD. Contact Jama Customer Support to assist with enablement and to ensure successful implementation. 

Announcing EOL Support for Trace Matrix

Within the next year, the Trace Matrix will no longer be supported. In an upcoming release, default access to the Trace Matrix will be disabled. Organization Admins can manually enable access to the Trace Matrix until this feature is officially EOL; more details to come in a future release and accompanying release notes.


Improvements from Community User Feedback

You Can Now Quickly Scan and Identify the Relationship Status for Live Traceability Coverage in Your List of Requirement Items

    • Causing Suspect is indicated by a yellow question mark icon in the second column.
    • Orphan Item is indicated by a teal up arrow in the third column.
    • Missing Downstream is indicated by a teal down arrow in the fourth column.
  • In List View and Trace View, unique icons for the Relationship Status Indicator now display the "Relationship Status" show/hide fields column configuration.
  • When you hover the arrow icon, informative tool tips now appear. 
  • Relationship status icons now appear in separate columns. 
Note: In Jama Connect 8.77, new icons will appear in the Dashboard filter widget.
