Quality Clouds 20.4.2.0 Release Notes

Release date: 10th November 2020


Highlights

  • Specific needs to set up rules? We let you customize the configuration rules by adding your own thresholds.

For all the rules that are based on a threshold (usually related to instance and org configuration rather than code), you can add a new set of conditions as well as corresponding severity and time to fix. This way you can customize the behavior of a rule to your specific conditions.

See more at Managing rulesets.


  • STOP technical debt! Quality Gate is here to help.

Quality Gate is a mechanism for preventing any new technical debt from coming into the platform. It helps you in creating and implementing a strategy for dealing with technical debt in your platform. When you enable a quality gate on your instance, you create a baseline of issues to work from, and you define which new issues can be created while dealing with the debt.

This is the first release of a series that will enable you to lock your existing technical debt, create exception rules for allowing new issues (based on a variety of factors, such as severity, impact area, developer) and effectively block any new issues from being built into the platform.

Quality Clouds for ServiceNow

  • We're now checking whether your source records are being updated by transform maps and scripts

Transform maps and their associated scripts are meant to transform the input data into the correct output format or values. They should never update the source records.

Our analysis now contains the following rules for ServiceNow to check for that:

  • We're improving our analysis by excluding the issues found in out-of-the-box (OOTB) ServiceNow elements

Even if we detect issues on modified OOBT elements, we're not going to report them because fixing issues of the following types on an out of the box element would require further modifications.

The following rules will not apply to modifications of OOTB elements:
