Enhancements and Features

Program Increment Scope Change report calculation changes

The Program Increment Scope Change report was updated to match with the Program Increment Progress report (Burnup by Story). The chat and new summary counts include all stories assigned to a sprint in the PI, as well as stories assigned to the PI but not a sprint. The new summary counts include:

  • All starting points: all story points assigned to a sprint in the PI or assigned to the PI but not a sprint as of the start date of the PI
  • Points added or removed: the net change of story points during the PI from the above count
  • Total points delivered: all story points assigned to a sprint in the PI or assigned to the PI but not a sprint that were accepted after the start date of the PI.

These summary counts will convert to team weeks if that option is selected in the Extra Configs. We also added tooltips to provide more detail on the calculations.


Scoring setting name change

To better clarify what the setting controls, we changed the name of the portfolio-specific setting for Scoring to Scorecards. This name change does not affect the functionality of the setting.

API 2.0 updates

We've made three updates to the API 2.0:

  • Updated Customers API with Create and Update using PUT, PATCH, POST methods
  • Updated Goals API with Create and Update using PUT, PATCH, POST methods
  • Created Milestones API with Read, Create, and Update using GET, PUT, PATCH, POST methods
    • This endpoint will have the same functionality as the current Objectives API

We're planning to make changes to Objectives API object in late 2021 to support new features. As a result, we recommend using the Milestones API for all new development related to SAFe objectives and milestones.
