Enhancements and Features 

Updates to Program Increment Progress report

We’ve updated the Predicted line to calculate the daily burn rate based on the sum of the average velocities across all active scrum (Agile type) teams tied to the selected program. As a reminder, average team velocity is a calculated average of all accepted story points in the team’s past five completed sprints. The Optimistic trendline is still a function of Predicted x 1.2 whereas Pessimistic is a function of Predicted x 0.8.

Want to know the best part? We’re bringing the data to you. Check out the Burn Details to understand how the Program burn is determined, and more importantly, all the underlying team velocities that feed the burn.



Note: There was a known issue wherein the informational text in the Burn Details panel displayed the sum of average velocities as the daily program burn rate (ex: "Here, the daily program burn rate is 56" in the image above). You can still find the actual average burn rate number in the calculation at the end of the informational text (ex: "56/11=5.1" in the above image). We resolved this error in version 10.77 before the version was released to production instances, as part of Release Notes Supplement for 10.77.

New REST APIs available

The following objects and methods are now supported in the API 2.0:

  • Acceptance criteria can be created on features using the POST method

  • Portfolios can be created using the POST method

  • Key results can be updated using the PUT or PATCH methods

Performance: Calls clean-up on Roadmaps and Program Room

On the Roadmaps page, we removed unused and duplicate calls and made small optimizations on others, so that the page only loads necessary information when the page initially loads. These changes helped to save 1-1.5 seconds of load time.

In the Program Room, we moved some outdated calls from the screen where programs and/or program increments are selected. For example, team images are now loaded only with room details. We also changed the room to not load info for disabled cards in the configuration. So if there are cards you don't need, by turning them off, you'll cut down on load time even more!

Important: All removed and optimized call changes in this release are not related to data size.
