Updates to SWAG values displayed on the Roadmaps board Delivery Insights panel

To ensure that you can view SWAG estimates based on different criteria, we have made the following changes on the Roadmaps board: 

  • You can view SWAG estimates for portfolio items on the respective cards
  • You can view rollup of SWAG values across rows and columns to understand SWAG estimates for the selected group by criteria (such as Teams) or a specific period.




New group-by options in the Roadmaps board BudgetBySwag2.png

We have added the following group-by options in the Roadmaps board to provide users more ways to group the data:

  • Project - Level
  • Strategic Theme - Level
  • Target Team

Note: The clipboard_ef3fa6c803fda1f21e80cbe87ac15596d.png button used to create new portfolio items is not available when you group by "Project - Level" or "Strategic Theme - Level" grouping options.


Ability to switch from vertical view to horizontal view in the asset details page asset_details_page.png

We have added a new button switch-view-button.png on the asset details page that allows you to view to switch between vertical and horizontal views of asset details.

Using this button, you can switch to the horizontal view when you need to view a text field such as Description and switch back to the default vertical view when you want to.

Ability to configure a PlanningRoom by a Strategic ThemeBudgetBySwag2.png

To allow users to create PlanningRooms focused on specific Strategic Themes, we have added a Strategic Theme filter in the PlanningRoom configuration page.

Usability improvements

  • Added a find filter for Strategic themes.
  • When using a filter with the 'Contains' criteria, search string can contain spaces.
  • Made changes to show the correct configured term for the 'Scope' asset. For example, the UI will now display Planning Level or Project as per the terminology configured.

Performance Updates

There have been several performance updates recently.  These changes were made available in point releases as they were completed.  Below is a recap of those changes.

  • Added support for Datamart AWS Server connections

  • Installer will now permit valid email addresses with a top level domain that exceeds three characters

  • Added response body to Ideas exceptions. Allows Ideas derived stories and pages to fail when Ideas is misconfigured.

  • During a Agility upgrade, if the database permissions of the user is not set to system admin, the upgrade will not take the database offline.

We would like to thank everyone who partnered with us to identify and work through these issues.  We sincerely appreciate your feedback and patience.


The following integrations will be sunset in the Agility version 22.0 release and no longer supported by Agility. They will continue to be open-source and community supported.
