Release Notes: Agile Manager 2.57 (26-March-2017)

Information about Agile Manager SaaS releases is available online in the Agile Manager Help Online

The following features and enhancements were added in version 2.57.

Backlog enhancements

Group stories linked to their children. 

When you break a user story, the group story created is linked to its children. Only group stories created in March 2017 or later will be linked to their children. 

'Done on date' indication for user stories. 

Similar to defects' Closed on date field, user stories now have a Done on date field specifying when their status was updated to Done. This field is available in user story grids and via API.

Maximum number of fields in the Add Item dialog box increased.

The Add Item dialog box can now include up to 25 fields (instead of 15).

Integration updates    

ALI: The CloudBees folders plug-in is now supported. 

If you create folders on Jenkins using this plug-in, Agile Manager recognizes these folders.

NextGen Synchronizer: ALM 14.00 (SaaS version) and ALM 12.55 are now supported. 

Communication with ALM 14.00 requires authentication by an Identity Provider (IdP). If you are synchronizing Agile Manager with ALM 14 (SaaS version), you must make a small adjustment to your Integration Bridge installation.

API enhancements

  • You can now retrieve history for themes, features, backlog items, and tasks. 

To retrieve history for a specific entity, add an audits parameter to the call you would use to retrieve the entity. For example, to retrieve history for a user story: 

//http(s)://<server>:<port>/agm/api/workspaces/<workspace_id>/backlog_items/<user_story_id>"/audits

  • A new unique resource, custom_fields, helps match custom field names to their API names. For details, see the API Interactive Help.
  • Like backlog items, theme and feature entities now include comments, as well as an indication if they are archived.
  • Tasks and acceptance tests include their Modified date.
