The patches for Jama Connect Standard 8.49 introduced some security updates, so we recommend upgrading to 8.49.2 if you are on 8.49.0. (8.49.2 supplanted 8.49.1.) There are some special steps you need to take if Jama Connect is installed on a Red Hat environment, if you access Jama Connect via a proxy, or if you are using Jama Connect Standard Airgap. Note that if you are currently on 8.49.0 and plan to upgrade to 8.56.0 shortly, moving to 8.49.2 is not necessary.  Red Hat Docker install issue:  The install.sh script that we provide on our community can not upgrade Docker on RHEL distributions. This is because Red Hat Linux no longer supports Docker ...

New Available Baseline Fields

Coming soon to the 8.54 Cloud release, we have added some new functionality to what fields you can view in Baselines. Prior to the 8.54 cloud release the baseline column toggler, which adds the fields only to list view, looked like this and only had these fields available. What Has Changed? The new baseline column toggler will allow you to add fields to both the baseline list and reading views. The fields you add to your reading view will work independently from the fields you add to your list view. The fields include custom and standard fields, for example you will now be able to see ‘Status’ if you have workflow enabled. The table ...
