Enhancements

Version 5.0.03.003 provides the following enhancements.

Exporting the map of properties

Starting with version 5.0.03.003, you can export the map of properties to a comma-separated values (CSV) file. In addition, now you can see a maximum of 50 characters in the property value column. 

For more information, see Properties Map by Environment or Application

Enhanced filtering in reports and requests

Earlier, you could restrict the historical data for requests or reports by specifying the date range in the Report/Request Date Filter Range settings. In version 5.0.03.003, the date range filter has been removed. Instead, now you can specify the maximum number of days that can be used as the range between the From and To fields while filtering requests, bulk delete requests, reports, or currently running steps. For more information, see Specifying general settings.

Adding description for a server

In version 5.0.03.003, while adding or editing a server, you can add an optional description for the server. This description is available on the Server Properties tab of a step when you select a list of servers on which you want to execute your deployment task. In addition, the description is available in an exported request.

Regenerating the REST API token using a rake task

By default, REST API token is generated for a user when the user is created. Starting with version 5.0.03.003, you can regenerate the token using a rake task

Updating LDAP group mappings using a rake task

In earlier versions, LDAP group mappings are updated after the first login through the GUI. Starting from version 5.0.03.003, you can update the mapping by executing a rake task without logging through the GUI. For more information, see To update LDAP group mappings using a rake task.

Exporting properties of all applications using a rake task

In version 5.0.03.003, you can export properties of all the applications in the system to a CSV file by using the export_all_properties rake task.
