Custom List enhancements

CA Agile Central has updated the Custom List app, formerly known as the Custom Grid. The Custom List is a powerful tool to manage work across enterprise teams. Use the Custom List app to prepare, plan and track portfolios, programs and development work.

The Control Bar displays by default on the Custom List app. When the Control Bar is selected, the following capabilities are available:

  • Add new work items to the list
  • Select filters to apply to the list
  • Filter items in the list by owner
  • Select columns to display on the list
  • Export, import, print
  • Pagination (displays if there are 10 or more work items)

Improved roll-ups and access to test case results from Iteration Status page

The Iteration Status page has been updated to better support test case, test case result, and test set reporting. Test case results are easier to create directly from board or list views, and values roll-up according to the selected iteration.

Known issues

LDAP Sync does not connect/run on On-Premises 2015.2

Solr stat download logs contain errors

In the On-Premises Control Panel, the Download Search Service Logs: Download Logs link on the Current Server Status tab produces log files that contains an error.

Application and server log files removed from the On-Premises Control Panel

On the On-Premises Control Panel, when the user clicks the Log Files link and downloads the log files, the application and server logs have been removed from the download file.

Customers with a large amount of data may experience a longer migration time

Some customers with a large amount of data may experience a longer artifact_tag_string migration time when restoring or restarting CA Agile Central. The amount of time the migration runs depends on the data size.

Mac Archive Utility error

When unzipping the 2014.1 On-Premises file, Mac user may encounter the following error message:

To resolve this issue, you can download a free Mac app called the Unarchiver. This app allows you to unzip larger files. You can download the app at the following address: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-unarchiver/id425424353?mt=12.

SQL error when restoring data sets does not require action

A bug that displayed a SQL error when restoring data sets has been fixed in the On-Premises 2014.1 release. The error appears on https://ONPREM_HOST/controlpanel/actionfiles/restorebackup.php when the user successfully executes a restore process. The error is related to database index query optimization and is safe to ignore as a background task runs weekly to re-create the index optimizations to fix this issue. However, since the bug existed in 2013.1 and previous releases and is related to data restoration, the SQL error will still display when restoring data from a 2013.1 release or earlier to a 2013.2 or later release. In order for the license key to be installed successfully, or being validated by the CA Agile Central Application, you must restart the CA Agile Central Application.
