Jama Connect 8.46 Cloud Release date AU/US/EMEA: 2020/01/17 New signature identifier in baselines Baselines that have signatures have a new icon in the baseline explorer, making it easier to identify which baselines/reviews have one or more signatures applied.   Baselines with a signature can no longer be deleted. The signatures must be revoked first. If the source for a baseline has been deleted from the project, users trying to create a new baseline or review from the baseline explorer will receive a message explaining that the source has been deleted.  New comment chart in reviews Open comments by comment type can now be seen from ...

Jama Connect 8.44 Cloud Release date AU/US/EMEA: 2019/11/22 Improved baseline handling Undo baseline deletion  Users that may have accidentally deleted a baseline can now quickly undo the deletion by selecting   Undo   in the confirmation message. (You can also still restore a baseline deletion in the activity stream.)     Track baseline name changes Previously, when a baseline name was edited it would update all activities with the new name, making it hard to track name changes in the activity stream. Now you can tell when the name of a baseline has been changed because the baseline ID stays the same and the name is updated. More clarity ...

Jama Software's customers use Connect for performing much of the product and system development process, from requirements and risk management to document approval. A common Jama customer goal is to work quicker and more efficiently. Sometimes your resident Connect expert has questions or Jama-related needs they cannot address, so they submit a support ticket. Our Customer Care team at Jama is responsive, but tickets with higher severity and greater impact always take priority over the everyday questions. Given that your organization uses Jama Connect to get things done faster, a day waiting for a response can seem like a week.   We hear you: you'd like ...

In preparation for future versions of the Jama Connect REST API, Jama Software is officially announcing a sunset date for the Jama  /latest  REST endpoint and potentially the EASIEST migration ever announced! Effective May 22, 2020 (2020/05/22),  all users of the  /latest  endpoint will be at risk of service outage if scripts are not updated with a named endpoint. Why is Jama making this change? As we roadmap and plan future versions, we identified that keeping the  /latest  endpoint will hinder innovation and versioning of our REST API. Users of the  /latest  endpoint in any form of scripted activities will need to migrate to a named version. ...

Versioning vs API ID

1 person likes this.
Every time a new version of an item is created, a new API ID is assigned to the item’s old version. API IDs remain the same, but their versioning process can cause confusion. When items in review are modified after a review is published, a blue banner is displayed along the top of the review to alert to the fact that we're looking at an outdated version of that item. At that time, if API IDs are set to visible in reviews, the old version' API ID will be displayed. After re-publishing the review, the current version of the item will show the original API-ID. Although the latest item's version always keeps ...

Regardless of industry or company size, when deploying Jama Connect, teams must decide how best to structure information in their Jama projects. Typically, the following two approaches are considered: Functional Product Structure: Projects are structured to align with the hierarchical breakdown of product definition (e.g., system/subsystems) and/or the organization of teams/disciplines. Document-centric Structure: Projects are structured to align with documentation needs, whereby the project's Explorer tree basically becomes the Table of Contents for the document. In the example below, the Functional Product Structure is organized by levels ...

With Advanced Filters you can save a particular set of rules or conditions for later use or editing . Advanced filters can be duplicated ,  made public to share with other users, favorited for convenient application, or used to filter the Explorer Tree . There are three Boolean operators that Advanced filters use to set up rules and conditions: AND , OR , and NOT .  The AND  operator is used to narrow search results. This is useful when filtering for items that must meet one specific or many specific rules. To apply the AND operator to your rule or rule group, you'll want to use "All". In the example below, we're looking for items that have at ...

What are these changes? The Velocity engine is being updated, requiring new template syntax for customers' reports. Why is Jama Software making these changes? Updating the Velocity reporting process to the new format will improve the overall quality of these reports in several ways: Improving overall security Increasing the stability of reports over time Simplifying the Report building process   How does this impact Jama Connect users at my company? Jama Connect users are not expected to be impacted immediately, but with any change in tooling, there is a risk of fringe issues not being immediately visible due to the highly ...
