Summer '20 (v16.4) - Release Notes

Updated 2 weeks ago by Copado Solutions

Key Features

  • Copado has introduced an enhancement in the user stories ahead and behind calculation that accounts for two use cases that were not previously covered:
    • You promote a user story to a higher environment, then move it back to the lower environment it came from in order to fix something and recommit. Copado will include this user story in the User Stories Ahead tab so that you can promote it again or it will automatically promote it if you are working with Copado Continues Delivery and have configured an automated or scheduled deployment behavior.
    • You promote a user story to a higher environment, and the user story gets back promoted to other lower environments. You then manually move that user story from the upper environment to the lower environment where it originated in order to fix something and recommit. Once the user story gets promoted again, Copado will display the user story on the User Stories Behind tab so that you can back promote it to the other lower environments or it will automatically back promote the user story if you are working with Copado Continuous Delivery and have configured an automated or scheduled back promotion behavior.
    In order to support this enhancement, a new Status field has been added to the Promoted User Story object (see the Upgrade Instructions below). When you manually move a user story to the environment where it originated, Copado automatically updates this picklist field to Outdated, and the user story is again available for promotion.
    If you accidentally change the environment on a user story to a lower environment, but you don’t want to make the user story available for promotion or back promotion, you will need to edit this picklist field and change it from Outdated to Active.
