ConnectALL 2.5 release notes

New Adapter

HPE ALM Octane (beta)

API KEY Authentication

Now authenticate ConnectALL REST services with API KEY, which uniquely identifies a user.

We introduced a new section in the User Management to manage API keys easily. You can deactivate the key when not in use.

JIRA Webhooks Support

Real-time sync made easy in JIRA integration without compromising the performance. A webhook configuration in JIRA allows you to push new/modified issues into ConnectALL effortlessly. The real-time push is supported for other ALM applications too.

ServiceNow Staging Table Support

A new feature to push data to ServiceNow staging is introduced. In turn, the staging table will automatically take care of master table record create/update.

Bulk Retry

A new feature to force the retry of failed records in bulk. It is very convenient to select more than one failure and force the retry in a single operation.

Display Expired License

Now License Configuration page can also display the expired licenses along with the valid licenses.

Comment Visibility

Restricted comments in ServiceNow / JIRA can be synced now with the comment visibility value mapping. Comment visibility value mapping section is available in the value mapping section of the respective fields.

Restricted Comment in JIRA can be synced as a public comment in ServiceNow or a Restricted Comment in ServicecNow can be synced as a public/restricted comment in JIRA through the customized value mapping.
