Saved ViewsShared Views

Saved Views helps you access and the manage the views you've saved more easily.  Saved Views is accessed in the sidebar menu. 

Any view that you save in My Views is automatically added to Saved Views, grouped by the page on which the view was created.  A view will remain in Saved Views until it is deleted it from the My Views list on the grid where it was created.

Any view can be marked as a Favorite by clicking on the star icon.  Favorites are listed in the Favorites group, which is always at the top, and is always expanded by default.  Toggling the star icon off will remove a view from the Favorites group.

Portfolio Item Template Enhancements

Portfolio Item Templates with stories

Portfolio Item Templates now support template child Stories.  This change enables the templatization of re-occurring portfolio initiatives, or common work in Feature development, from the Portfolio Item down to the Task and Test.  By using a template, you reduce mistakes errors when generating Portfolio Items and the associated work.   Story Templates under a Portfolio Item cannot be created independently and assigning an existing Story Template to an Portfolio Item Template will remove it from the Story Template list. 

Continuum Deferred Activities

When a user approves an activity there are times when executing the next activity is not ideal.  A typical case for this would be when a new version of software is approved but a disruption to service is not ideal.  With deferred automated activities this can now be scheduled to happen in the early morning hours instead of as soon as the approval takes place.  

Feature Awareness

When Continuum receives commit information about a story or defect from VersionOne, Azure Devops/TFS or Jira there is automatic check to see if the item has a parent.  If a parent such as an Epic does exist then that data is shown on the story detail page with a link to the parent asset if available. 

VersionOne Webhook Support

Continuum now stays in sync with VersionOne via the new VersionOne webhooks.

General Enhancements and Improvements

  • New Admin menu layout
  • Legend added to Progression Board
  • Sticky headers on Progression Board
  • Longest running activity emphasized on the activity detail page
  • Longest running activity emphasized on the audit report
  • Improved Mongo Sessions to prevent corruption
  • Triggering Azure Devops/TFS Builds and Deploy is now supported

Platform

Webhooks

Webhook Configuration

Webhooks subscriptions configurability via the UI has been extended.  Creating and editing subscriptions is done in the Subscription tab of a new slide-out window.  A single subscription can have one or many trigger events, and a webhook can be configured with additional security.  The detailed history of webhook execution is accessible in the Status tab.
