not released yet

Source code stabilization, improvements and fixes.

Bug fixs:

  • Attachment synchronization can now be deactivated in old solution. All attributes can be activated or deactivated by customizing in old and new solution.

  • Logging option “Application log” (logging of processing details in SLG1 log) is back (now also available in new solution). Legacy logging configuration is no longer needed. (Prior to this version both configurations were needed for activating the logging completely.)

  • New sync action /XALM/CC4_SX can now be used for CC4 DC as well. Issues with sending attachments and receiving error messages got fixed. Actions /XALM/CC4_CR and /XALM/CC4_UP are no longer needed but still working with some limitations.

  • Old and new sync action are now able to send predecessor ticket information to the external tool. CC4 is now able to link tickets bidirectionally. Jira can send parent-child details and Solman can send parent-child details. In the past these details were empty or wrong.

  • Sync of integer values (like Value Points and Effort Points) got fixed by removing trailing whitespaces (= sign) on sending to external tool.

  • Multiple issues on dealing with fallback/default values in attribute definition got fixed. (overwrite in child profile, force attribute sending, consider as external value consequently),

  • Error handling got improved. Performance got improved.

Improvements:

  • Some new attributes like Urgency, Impact, ProdecessorExtId are now supported for inbound and outbound.

  • ChaRM Release Data, Focused Build ITPPM data and Focused Build IT Requirement data are now supported for direction Solman to external.

  • Additionally support of URLs jump into (Focused Build) UI5 app instead of SAP CRM Web UI.

  • Attachment changes on SAP Solution Manager side are now logged in text log, immediately sending a sync to external tool if configured.

  • Possibility for sending sync to external tool asynchronously (instead of synchronously).

  • Value mapping is now supporting special control values “*” or “#ELSE#”, “!” or “#DELETE#” and ““ (space) or “#IGNORE#”. From now on attribute values can be removed/deleted if configured (previously attributes could be set or changed but never removed/deleted)
