Upcoming On-Premises Features & Release Schedule

Print this topicEmail this topic

New features and defect fixes proposed for the Rally On-Premises Release 2014.1 may be found in the sections below. Please note that included features and defect fixes are subject to change before a release is finalized. The items below have been released to Rally On-Demand since the 2013.3 On-Premises release.

Rally On Premises 2014.1

Rally strives to release our On-Premises edition approximately once per quarter. It is difficult to predict with precision a release date, because we take our fully tested SaaS application and snapshot it directly into a VM for distribution. There may be synchronization issues between ALM features and On-Premises features that can shift the version of ALM we pick for the release. Once we have a release candidate we take a week to ensure that the release meets our stringent quality requirements.

In order to get you the best date possible for your planning, we will begin building the 2014.1 On-Premises edition release on March 31, 2014. Our experience is that it takes between one week and one month to release after this date. We are working to shorten this time as much as possible, but it has on occasion taken up to a month to release. We appreciate your patience as we continue to work on delivering the highest quality product possible to you.

Project Admin role

We've made it easier to manage large projects and teams by introducing the new Project Admin role. Subscription and workspace admins may designate one or more users to administer a project by choosing this role when setting project permissions.

Project Admins have the ability to:

  • View administered projects from the Workspaces & Projects page in the Setup menu
  • Edit the details of a project
  • Create child projects underneath administered projects
  • Update the details of viewer and editor users from the Project Users summary page
  • Project Admins may also create new users in their projects when a subscription admin enables the Project Admins Can Create New Users option from the subscription settings page.

    New Web Services API query for collections

    Previously it was not possible to write a query to get all stories with defects or all defects without any tags. Rally has enhanced Web Services API queries, allowing you to query on a collection whether or not is empty.

    Examples:

    User stories without defects

    (Defects.ObjectID = null)

    User stories with defects

    (Defects.ObjectID != null)

    Defects without tags

    (Tags.ObjectID = null)

    Defects that have tags

    (Tags.ObjectID != null)

    Defect fixes

    • DE18011 - Tasks completed on the Iteration Tracking app not rolling up values on the Iteration Status page or story popover
    • DE18197 - Updated long project names overlapping with menu items in the menu bar
    • DE18659 - Changes are not applied when multi-editing the Schedule State field on the Quality -> Defects page
    • DE19420 - Shared Kanban board does not display for some users
