Release Date Hosted: 2018/04/27

Introducing Jama Analyze:

Build on product development data your teams are generating from other tools—like Jama Connect, Jira Software, and GitHub—to get a far-reaching view into performance across teams. Learn more.

New Capabilities:

Verification and Validation

Now, your organization can more easily create, view and review test data. Here are the changes:

        • Test runs in Trace View:  Quality Engineers and Product Development leaders can now see your test data in the larger context of verification and validation. 


        • Test data in reviews: Now both your test plan approach and your results can be reviewed and signed as part of your quality process. Simply select Send for review from the test plan or test cycle menus. You can also send a single test run for review.

        • Test runner license: This new tailor-made license gives testers all the permissions they need to create test plans, execute tests, and manage defects. 
        • Restore test run order: This new button restores the original order after sorting with columns. For older data, a project reindex may be required to properly restore the order.

CKEditor upgrade to version 4.9 brings rich text enhancements:

        • Copy/paste and image support

            • Paste text and images from MS Office (Word or Excel) and most formatting is maintained. (Note: This does not apply when using Safari.)

            • Images are pasted inline and automatically added to the item as attachments.
            • Toolbar copy/paste buttons are now replaced with keyboard options. When pasting, a bubble notification will appear with keyboard options.

        • The browser's native spell check is now accessible: cmd or ctrl + right-click.
        • Table support

            • Now you can select, copy and paste cells (rather than the content) more like Excel.


            • For editing, the pencil icon has been replaced with the more familiar in-context right-click trigger.


            • Easily add a blank line above or below a table. When a table is directly against the edge of a rich text field, blue highlights guide you to select a button and add a line. No more hunting for the edge of a table!               


Improved User Guide

        • Help documentation has been deep cleaned and reorganized with users in mind.
        • Features include an improved glossary, "quick find" topics and sections for project, organization and system administrators.
        • A new content management system allows for more efficient updates, better search display and more clear and accurate content.


        New category "DEFECT" available on item types, if set then will be returned in v1 via GET /itemtypes

        These updates can be found in the

        • testruns - PUT and PATCH updates. These are located in labs as the changes are considered breaking for the existing v1 versions. The intent is to have the updates align with the item type field configuration and not mimic the Test Execution UI. Custom field updates are included.
        • activities - New event types to provide more refined detail.  BATCH_CREATE, BATCH_UPDATE,   BATCH_DELETE,  COPY,  BATCH_COPY, MOVE
