Release Information

  • Released on: Jun 30, 2021
  • GA Version: 21.1.300

TeamForge License Framework

The TeamForge license framework has been revamped in TeamForge 21.1.

The new TeamForge license model consists of the following license types:

  • ALM Pro
  • ALM Essentials
  • SCM

Here’s the list of changes to the TeamForge license model.

  • The Version Control, Collaboration, and Trackers license types are no longer available in TeamForge 21.1 and later
  • The ALM and Baselines license types are bundled together and are being offered as the new ALM Pro license

When you migrate from TeamForge 21.0 or earlier to TeamForge 21.1 or later:

  • Existing ALM licenses are migrated to ALM Pro
  • All other types of licenses such as Baselines, Version Control, Tracker, and Collaboration are deleted

For more information, see TeamForge License.

Tracker Description as a Configurable Field

TeamForge Tracker’s Description field is now a mandatory configurable field, for which you can define a default value too. The use case here is to allow Tracker and Project Admins to add a default description template for trackers to guide users who create tracker artifacts.

Usability Improvements to User-Role and User Group-Role Matrixes

  • The Name column of the User-Role and User Group-Role matrixes is now frozen as you scroll through the table horizontally.

Usability Enhancements

  • You can now mark review comments in a code review as resolved/unresolved. Unresolved review comments, if any, are automatically posted for resolution when the repository maintainer tries to merge the code change. In addition, a warning message appears when you try to merge a review with unresolved inline comments.

  • Usability improvements to provide greater visibility and easier access to commit associations and review associations within the Code Browser making it simpler and faster to locate and access related artifacts, documents, and other assets.
