External request providers
This release includes many enhancements when working with external request providers:
You can now use different request providers in the same Dimensions CM database.
For example, you can own a mix of requests from multiple providers, including Jira issues, ALM Octane work items, and native Dimensions CM requests, and view all of them in your Requests inbox.
You can map providers to the whole database, any of its products, or specific projects/streams in a product.
You can use multiple providers of the same type, for example, multiple Jira instances or ALM Octane workspaces.
The new external request functionality is available in Dimensions CM 14.6 clients: the web client, desktop client, Visual Studio IDE, and Eclipse IDE. For details, see Use external requests.
For details on how to add request providers to Dimensions CM, see Configure request providers.
You can now delegate baselines to other users, give additional roles on baselines, and change delegated users.
This feature is available in all Dimensions CM clients. In the command-line client, use the
DLGB command. For details, see the Command-line reference.
For details about delegation, see the Administration Console online help.
