      Every Windows user who shared the same notebook has to install Dimensions CM Web Client multiple times. CM 14.3.3 introduces the Web Client to replace the applet used in earlier version of Dimensions ...CM.  However, the installation is installed on each user. •CC:UsersAppDataRoamingSerena If the notebook is shared by a few users, each user has to install the Dimensions CM Web Client.  This type of installation has 2 implications:   1.  Why must every user who shared the notebook install the Dimensions CM Web client?   2.  Deployment software cannot be used to push the Dimensions CM Web Client installer and install for every notebooks in the network using the administrator user account   The idea is to allow a single Dimensions CM Web Client installation to work for every user.

      When a manual import of a component version is requested there is no feedback until the import has completed.   This is problematic for version that may take a good bit of time.   A immediate progress... bar and/or status feedback would be helpful to at least indicate that the import is proceeding and at what state of completion it is estimated to be. When a manual import of a component version is requested there is no feedback until the import has completed.   This is problematic for version that may take a good bit of time.    A immediate progress bar and/or status feedback would be helpful to at least indicate that the import is proceeding and at what state of completion it is estimated to be. Additionally it appears that if the window in focus is cancelled or move off of, the import is consequently cancelled.  If this is the case it is suggested to kick off the manual import process as a background task so that it can be viewed and returned to at a later point.     More

      Matthew Ong added new listing Release Control to include Dimensions RM plug-in provider in Release Manager/Release Control
      Release Control to provide Dimensions RM plugins. In the SDLC, requirements are defined by the business.  The development team may generate CRs or development task to work on the requirements.  When t...he development team creates a baseline, it may comprise multiple completed CRs.  The business would like to know which requirements are completed and included in this release.   The business people does not know the relationship of CRs and baselines.

      The current Pulse and Kiuwan integration leads to full stream scanning instead of changeset.   Currently, when a developer delivers a change to Dimensions CM, Pulse will invoke the Kiuwan to scan all ...the items in the streams.  This approach will give rise to 2 issues: 1.  The stream may contain hundred thousands or more items.  The scan may take hours. 2.  It may breach the daily MLOC scanning limit Kiuwan imposed on specific account. When a developer makes a change, it typically involves a few files.  The idea is to propose the scanning of the changeset instead of the full stream. More

      Centralized Management console in Pulse to show deployment status of baseline (revised, merged, tip or request) Currently, Pulse is able to show the status of the expert toolchain.  The expert toolcha...in execution is based on continuous integration and delivery.  However, not all the customers adopt continuous integration.  An example is the promotion of baseline (revised, merged, tip or request).  This information is available in the Dimensions CM web console.  This group of customers require a centralized management console in Pulse.

      Matthew Ong added new listing Search for Deployment Unit by start date & end date in Release Manager/Release Control
      Difficult to navigate and select the deployment units when the no of deployment units hits more than 20. Product Configuration: Release Control 6.1.1 What is the issue: As the year goes by, there ca...n be a few hundreds deployment units.  It becomes increasingly difficult to select the deployment units. Proposed Solution: The Release Control to have another filter criterions (Start and End Date).  By default, pre-sort the list from latest. More

      Matthew Ong added new listing Inheritance of Group in SBM in SBM
      Simplify assignment of permission with group inheritance. During the upgrade of Release Control 5.1 to 6.0, the document stated all users must be assign full permissions to the AUX table called “RLC D...eployment Log”.  However, there are 255 groups of users representing 200 applications.  It is extremely tedious to go into either individual group or select 25 groups to assign this privileges. I propose SBM to provide group inheritance features.  We can set up generic developer & development manager group and assign this privileges at this basic level.  All applications will inherits from these respective groups.

      Matthew Ong added new listing Release Control to pick up associated request from Dimensions CM baseline in Release Manager/Release Control
      Release Control to pick up associated request from Dimensions CM baseline When the developer creates the Release Package, the deployment unit (Dimensions CM) is selected.  The deployment unit is a bas...eline (revised or request).  Now, the developer needs to select the change request in the Release Package.  It is possible for the developer to select the wrong change request.  This idea is for Release Package to auto-associate the change request in the baseline.
