Enhancements and Features
Snapshot Details panel updates
Inside of strategic snapshot Details panels, we've swapped the position of two field sections, Funding Levels and Horizon Percentages, to make funding entry quicker and simpler. Now, you can set Funding Levels for a snapshot without first having to click the Full Details link:
Portfolio Room enhancements
We've made multiple updates to both the Resources and Execution views of the Portfolio Room.
We’ve replaced the Theme Effort Distribution and Theme Scope charts with a new, simplified bar chart named Estimated Effort Distribution. This chart displays the distribution of estimated effort across themes planned for the PI(s) selected in the Configuration bar.
The height of each bar and percentage displayed reflects the amount of estimated effort from child epics and stand-alone features associated with a theme, compared to the amount of all effort estimated for the portfolio and selected PI(s). This is a great way to keep a pulse on how the estimated work is broken-out.
In addition, we’ve buffed up some insights like Forecasted Program Effort %. In the grid of epics at the center of the page, you can now review the sum of all PI Estimates entered for the program from the Forecast tab of an epic’s Details panel, divided by the epic's total estimate.
Additional changes include:
- Inside the grid of epics and programs:
- Points column renamed to Story Points
- TW column renamed to Total PI Estimate
- Allocated column renamed to Forecasted Program Effort
- For each program listed in the right-hand column:
- The Capacity: X TW value was replaced with a Total Velocity: X points value, which displays the sum of all Program PI Velocities for the PI(s) selected in the configuration bar
- Load: % label renamed to Total Program PI Load: %
- Theme Burnup chart label renamed to Theme PI Progress
- In the Program Increment Roadmap, progress indicators for each PI have been renamed from Complete: % to Progress: %
- Inside the grid of epics, features, and capabilities:
- Points column renamed to Story Points
- TW column renamed to Estimated PI Effort
- For each PI listed in the right-hand column, a PI Progress label was added to the left of each progress bar to indicate what the bar represents
Jira Connector settings change log filters
To improve the experience when reviewing change logs found at Administration > Jira Settings > Manage Projects > View Logs, we introduced a new grid view, with support for the Apply Filters menu found on other pages.
You can now filter by date and attributes inside of Issues, Configurations, Jira API, Boards, Sprints, and Release Vehicle logs to pinpoint information faster. These changes also resolve multiple performance issues experienced by customers with large data sets.
Performance and usability improvements in release vehicle Details panels
For improved performance, search functionality, and navigation, we’ve added additional controls to the work item lists found at the bottom of release vehicle Details panels:
- View All link: Redirects to the work item grid, filtered by release vehicle. This link doesn’t display if no work items are assigned to the release vehicle
- Search bar: Search can be performed by ID and name
- View more link at the bottom of the list: Loads the next 10 items, when applicable
Additionally, the work item lists now display only the first 10 most recently created work items when they’re initially expanded. The work items are listed in descending order by their creation date.
API 2.0 updates
We've made two updates to the API 2.0:
- Added the ability to read Login Activity with the GET method
- In Jira Align, this page is found under Administration > Login Activity, and you must have access to this page in order to use the API call
- Added a Goals API with read access
- Currently, you can retrieve this information with a GET method and expanded GET for some fields as noted in Swagger documentation.
