UI Errors have appeared in Test Center using Jama Connect Cloud 8.47 with newer versions of Chrome (v79 and v80). Most of these errors can be avoided by not upgrading to Chrome v79 or v80 at this time and/or using a different browser.   If you have already upgraded your Chrome browser you can correct most of these errors by: Logging out of Jama Clearing your cookies and cache in Chrome. Logging back in Jama The errors are primarily in the Test execution window within the “results” RTE column in the Test Steps, as outlined in the Known Issues area in the 8.47 Release Note

Jama Connect 8.44 Cloud Release date AU/US/EMEA: 2019/11/22 Improved baseline handling Undo baseline deletion  Users that may have accidentally deleted a baseline can now quickly undo the deletion by selecting   Undo   in the confirmation message. (You can also still restore a baseline deletion in the activity stream.)     Track baseline name changes Previously, when a baseline name was edited it would update all activities with the new name, making it hard to track name changes in the activity stream. Now you can tell when the name of a baseline has been changed because the baseline ID stays the same and the name is updated. More clarity ...

In preparation for future versions of the Jama Connect REST API, Jama Software is officially announcing a sunset date for the Jama  /latest  REST endpoint and potentially the EASIEST migration ever announced! Effective May 22, 2020 (2020/05/22),  all users of the  /latest  endpoint will be at risk of service outage if scripts are not updated with a named endpoint. Why is Jama making this change? As we roadmap and plan future versions, we identified that keeping the  /latest  endpoint will hinder innovation and versioning of our REST API. Users of the  /latest  endpoint in any form of scripted activities will need to migrate to a named version. ...

Versioning vs API ID

1 person likes this.
Every time a new version of an item is created, a new API ID is assigned to the item’s old version. API IDs remain the same, but their versioning process can cause confusion. When items in review are modified after a review is published, a blue banner is displayed along the top of the review to alert to the fact that we're looking at an outdated version of that item. At that time, if API IDs are set to visible in reviews, the old version' API ID will be displayed. After re-publishing the review, the current version of the item will show the original API-ID. Although the latest item's version always keeps ...

Regardless of industry or company size, when deploying Jama Connect, teams must decide how best to structure information in their Jama projects. Typically, the following two approaches are considered: Functional Product Structure: Projects are structured to align with the hierarchical breakdown of product definition (e.g., system/subsystems) and/or the organization of teams/disciplines. Document-centric Structure: Projects are structured to align with documentation needs, whereby the project's Explorer tree basically becomes the Table of Contents for the document. In the example below, the Functional Product Structure is organized by levels ...

With Advanced Filters you can save a particular set of rules or conditions for later use or editing . Advanced filters can be duplicated ,  made public to share with other users, favorited for convenient application, or used to filter the Explorer Tree . There are three Boolean operators that Advanced filters use to set up rules and conditions: AND , OR , and NOT .  The AND  operator is used to narrow search results. This is useful when filtering for items that must meet one specific or many specific rules. To apply the AND operator to your rule or rule group, you'll want to use "All". In the example below, we're looking for items that have at ...
