Release Notes for 10.96 (Production Instances)

Enhancements and Features

Important: API 2.0 changes to the Themes and Release endpoints

In an effort to match property names with the Align UI and standardize property naming conventions, the following property changes were made:

Releases

  • lastUpdatedDate was added
  • uid changed to lastUpdatedBy
  • relStatus changed to status
  • beginDate changed to startDate
  • short changed to shortName
  • synchronize changed to scheduleType
  • predecessor changed to predecessorId
  • active was removed
  • manualPercentComplete was removed
  • picType was removed
  • mode was removed

Themes

  • lastUpdatedDate was added
  • lifeCycleStateId changed to developmentalStepId
  • lifeCycleSateIdop changed to operationalStepId
  • createdDate changed to createDate
  • targetDate changed to targetCompletionDate
  • startDate changed to startInitiationDate
  • estimateDate changed to portfolioAskDate
  • lastModifiedDate was removed

The removed properties are for internal use only. Because these types of properties are not available in the UI and do not support integrations, reporting, or other API use cases, we decided to remove them to avoid any confusion.

Detailed API 2.0 error responses

When complex queries return just an error status response, there is little to no information to help identify the actual issue. Now, the error responses include details of the actual issue.

For example, the following is query will execute successfully:

/rest/align/api/2/cities?filter=contains(title,'x')

But with a simple typo in the property name:

/rest/align/api/2/cities?filter=contains(titlez,'x')

The API used to return just the error status:

400 - Bad Request

Now, the API will return a detailed response with the status:

400 - Bad Request
Cannot find cities. Could not find a
property named ‘titlez’ on type ‘City’.
