Release Date US: 2023/08/25
Release Date AU/EU: 2023/08/26


Reuse Baselined Items

You can now reuse baselined items created from folders, sets, components, text items, or a single item. They can be reused in the same project or in a different project, as long as the user has write access to the destination. 

With this feature, you can:

  • Create a new baseline in the destination project.
    • The new baseline starts with the word "Reuse" so you can compare changes to the items that are reused. 

  • Include categories when reusing the baselined items.
    • For successful reuse, categories applied to the baselined items must be enabled in the destination project.


To reuse a baseline, choose from one of the following methods:

  1. Right-click on a baseline from the baseline tree and select Reuse baseline

  2. Open a baseline and select Reuse from the baseline header

  3. Open a baseline source, select a single baseline, and select Reuse from the source header


Special Character Use in Full-Text Search

  • A few special characters have been updated so that they are automatically excluded (escaped) from full-text search, so that they can be searched for as plain text.
    • The auto-escaped characters are: \ ^ [ ] { } ~ /

    • If you used \ to manually exclude special characters, you can achieve the same results by using double quotations.
      • For example, if you previously searched using \*abc to treat the * character as text, you can now use “*abc” instead.

  • The error messaging has been updated when a special character results in a syntax or other general error so that the reason for the error is more specific and clarifies how to resolve the error.

Please note: Special character search will only work on newly created items. It will not work on older items until a re-index has occurred. 

Usability Improvements

  • Bring your own custom icons (16x16 PNG) for item configurations.
  • Infotips are now supported from the Batch Update window.


Coming Soon

In the upcoming Jama Connect 9.4 release, access to the REST API will be restricted to users with creator licenses.

I agree with Dimitrios.

It is very unlike Jama Software to make announcements like this without providing the context/background for making such a decision.

In the upcoming Jama Connect 9.4 release, access to the REST API will be restricted to users with creator licenses.

Can someone from Jama explain why this will be done? We have developed scripts for users to retrieve information during testing. These users don't have creator licenses but collaborator licenses.
