  • The currency symbol used in Value Dashboard reports
  • The minimum and maximum values used when creating Process Metrics reports

For more information, see Changing dashboard and report default settings.

Development Studio enhancements

The following enhancements have been made in Development Studio.

Context item name top-aligned

Previously, it was sometime difficult to find the context item name when viewing a context item with lot of detail. The context item name is now top-aligned so that it is easy to find. 

Context item name at the top of the context item details pop-up window

Previously, when viewing a context item's details, the pop-up window that displayed the details did not display the context item name. Now the context item name appears at the top of the details pop-up window.

Ability to confirm all modules import at once

Previously, when importing multiple modules from the repository into Development Studio, you had to confirm the module overwrite for each module that will overwrite an existing one. Now you can confirm the import for all modules at once instead of having to do individual confirmations for each module.


This release includes fixes to the following known issues.
