Deployment Manager 4.2.1 includes the following enhancements.
The following enhancements are provided in this release:
- Ability to add and manage roles, privileges, and usersDeployment Manager now provides default roles that specify privileges for super administrators and application administrators. Super administrators can add roles and specify their privileges, and both super administrators and application administrators can add users and assign them roles for specified applications. By specifying roles and privileges for Deployment Manager users, you can manage your users more effectively by controlling access to features for each type of user.
- New Deployment Manager portalDeployment Manager now provides a dedicated Deployment Manager portal that does not require access to the Dev Studio portal to access Deployment Manager features. The portal also provides enhancements such as a navigation panel from which you can easily access features such as reports, without having to open specific pipelines. Additionally, when you add a pipeline or modify pipeline settings, you can now open the rule forms for repositories and authentication profiles in Dev Studio from within Deployment Manager.
- Ability to merge branches that span multiple application layersYou can now merge a branch that has rulesets that are in multiple applications if all the rulesets are in the application stack for the pipeline application. By doing so, you can, for example, merge changes that affect both a framework and an application layer. You can also merge test assets with the rules that you are testing without the test assets and rules being in the same application.
