For a summary of items in this release, see the following highlights:

GCM: Work item linking and navigation in a GC context

You can now manage associations between global configurations and Engineering Workflow Management (EWM) releases in the Global Configuration Management (GCM) application.

The following changes are made in GCM:
  • The Release link type is included in the Global Configuration artifact type by default.
  • A wizard is created that imports release links into the new format that is required for version 7.0.2 and later.
  • You can use a release picker dialog box to add release links in a global configuration.
  • You can use the Release link in query conditions and view it as a result column in the tables.
  • The Release link information is added to the rich hover previews of global configurations in the Configuration Context.

GCM: More expressive queries

The following are some of the query enhancements made in GCM:
  • Use link properties in query conditions and result columns
  • Negation operators for a group of query conditions
  • New query operator for enumerated attributes
  • Additional attributes in query conditions and result columns

GCM: Update tags when you are creating a baseline

Earlier, the Create Baseline dialog box contained two fields: Existing Tags to show the tags of the stream the baseline is being created from, and Additional Tags to add new tags. Also, to remove tags, you had to first create the baseline, then edit it and remove tags.

The dialog box now has only one field, Tags. It is pre-populated with the existing tags of the stream, but you can add or remove tags as needed. The new baseline uses the exact set of tags from the field. To create a new tag, you need the Create Tag privilege as usual.

IBM Automotive Compliance licenses

You can now download the Automotive license from the License Key Center by downloading a compressed (.zip) file that contains all offering contents, including the templates, from Passport Advantage.

Smart people picker component

A new people picker component is now introduced as part of the ongoing user experience transformation and alignment with IBM's open source Carbon Design System. The people picker is a dialog box for selecting users and can be used for assigning an owner or a set of subscribers to an artifact.
