In this release, you will mainly discover:
Notes for administrators
We've worked on the reindexing algorithm
If you notice a change of performance, please notify us. We've ran the tests (see Performance) and reach the same results, varying depending on the quantity of changed requirements, so we're confident we're not impacting your servers negatively. However, it may always happen that we underestimate some scenarios, so please tell us about any issue.
We aim at obtaining the Data Center certifications, so the performance will keep improving in the following months. See Data Center strategy for Requirement Yogi.
It is now possible to set a global limit which is used everywhere. The default is 12,000 requirements in any batch, 2,000 by default in the UI, and 4,000 for import. See Global limit if you are interested.
We haven't implemented the global limit yet on the Coverage and Dependency matrix.
We've introduced the Excel tab, to import requirements from Excel files.
- It is possible to disable the Excel import entirely,
- It is possible to limit the number of requirements per file.
See Excel Import if you are interested.
We plan to change the permissions.
We used to rely on the EXPORT permission of the space, to determine the visibility of the Coverage, Dependencies, Traceability and Excel tabs. At the time we chose the "Export" permission, although the name doesn't fit, because it matches the performance profile of the export: Those features require a lot of processing or I/O power, and exporting a space also requires a lot of power.
Since we've implemented the Global limit, we believe there is no reason to require this permission anymore, since we've found a way to limit the impact of those features on other users. We plan to drop this permission in the next release.
Be prepared, in an upcoming release, to have those tabs appear for all users.
