This topic describes the features that were introduced or enhanced in Agile Manager 2.57.
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 2017or 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.
Add Item dialog box improvements
The Add Item dialog box can now include up to 25 fields (instead of 15).
The Add Item dialog box now includes the Sprint field. Users are not required to enter a sprint. (Available from December 2017)
Archive backlog items
You can now archive individual user stories and defects.
For details, see Archive backlog items. (Available from July 2018)
You can now add a Read Only Lane column in the Release Backlog and Product Backlog. You can sort and group the display according to lane. (Available from October 2017)
Cards on the Storyboard can now be colored according to theme. (Available from October 2017)
On the Task Board, you can now view a task’s history. Right-click a task and select Show History. (Available from October 2017)
If configured, users are now notified when features are assigned to them. Previously, such notifications were available only for backlog items. (Available from December 2017)
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. For details, see Configure the authentication type for ALM SSO connections.
You can now retrieve history for themes, features, backlog items, and tasks.
To retrieve history for a specific entity, add an
auditsparameter to the call you would use to retrieve the entity.
For example, to retrieve history for a user story:
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.
A new API unique resource, kanban_statuses, returns Kanban Statuses according to team ID. (Available from October 2017)
For each status, the status ID, name, and the mapped backlog item status are returned.
For example, you can use this resource to get the Kanban status name for the Kanban status ID that was returned for a backlog item.
A new API unique resource, action_items, returns sprint closure action items. (Available from October 2017)
- New API unique resources — link_errors and link_error_details — return Synchronizer errors and their details. (Available from July 2018)
