  • Chapter 3. Fixes

    The following fixes have been applied to the current version.v IBM - 3 cassandra nodes are not HA enabledv IBM Ticket - Valid Resource Manager url is initially flagged as invalidv ALM UI : The Discard (changes) button should only need to be hit oncev ALM UI : The UI Properties values display needs to have a tooltip for values

    not fully visiblev ALM UI : Long assembly descriptor name overwrites action iconsv Assembly Instance on Main GUI screen displays the next-to-last process rather

    than last process when the latest process is DeleteAssembly (i.e. deletein-progress or failed)

    v GUI Take Action window contents overflow onto main screenv UI: Info popup displaying Resource Manager locations disappears too quicklyv UI: Differentiate between active and inactive assembly instances in the main list

    viewv UI: Part of error message is missingv UI: Wrong message displayed when assembly instance is deletedv UI: Error displayed in UI needs to be more than just the logfile outputv UI : Inconsistency with 'Take Action' icon for assembliesv UI : Relationships graphic needs updating or removalv UI : The assemblies search bar should cover partial assembly name searchv UI : Main banner needs restructuringv Incorrect RM URL leads to customer confusionv Wrong message given if Descriptor omitted when creating Assembly

    Configurationv Part of error messages get obscured by the OK buttonv Blank error popup if resource manager port is changedv Blank error if 'readonly' user attempts to create or deletev INVALID_REQUEST ALM Driver error if 'secadmin' user logs in to ALM UI.v Two relationships with same source/target leave inconsistent systemv Execution Graph not refreshed during complex healv Deleting an Assembly cease relationship not performed on second relationshipv Process Execution View not updating when a Process is re-calculated

  • Chapter 4. Limitations

    The following limitations apply to the General Availability version of AgileLifecycle Manager Version 2.0.

    General limitations

    The following limitations apply to this release:v When you change the value of an assembly instance property by upgrading the

    assembly instance via the GUI, you are asked to review the modified propertyvalues before you confirm the upgrade. This review step incorrectly indicatesthat the values of a number of other properties will revert to their default valuesif you proceed. Ignore this, as only the values of the properties you havespecified will be changed.

    v ERROR is recorded in Elasticsearch (ES) logs at startup: These errors resolvethemselves once the cluster forms, and can therefore be ignored.

    v Relationships to referenced assemblies will not be deleted or amended if thereferenced assembly is uninstalled or upgraded, and the referencing assemblywill then become unusable once cycled through inactive and active states.

    v Read only properties in an operation are not supported.v Multiple concurrent intent requests on an assembly instance are not supported.v If the record of a resource manager is deleted using the Lifecycle Manager API,

    all instances created by that resource manager will no longer be managed.v Requesting operations through the Lifecycle manager API is not supported.v The upgrade intent does not support rolling upgrades of clusters.v The mapping of cluster property values is not allowed from the cluster.

    Properties can be mapped into a cluster property.v Changing cluster property values to 'initial-quantity', 'minimum-nodes',

    'maximum-nodes' or 'scaling-increment' is not currently supported by theAssembly Upgrade pattern.
