This month’s candy bag of product releases serves up a lot of performance and usability improvements as well as useful updates to various integrations.
Read all the highlights below:
Updates to Importers
This month we’ve made several performance improvements to all importers (Excel, ServiceNow, AWS, etc.) to give you a better and faster journey to achieving your objectives.
Errors Turned Into Warnings
Importing higher quality data right from the start is now even smoother. Spend less time on cleaning the data before the import with these handy changes:
If your import data contains duplicate components, all but one will be ignored with a warning. Previously, this would be considered an error that blocked the import, with the exception of ServiceNow.
If your import data contains a component with a hierarchy that is missing an intermediate component name (eg. level 2 in a 3-level hierarchy is missing), that component will now be ignored with a warning. Previously, this would be considered an error that blocked the import.
Better Handling of Large Imports
The experience of handling large data imports is a much better ride, with an update that allows large imports to take all the time they need, without returning a Bad Gateway error after only a few minutes.
ServiceNow Improvements and Version Update
When using the more secure Ardoq add-on for ServiceNow, you might have experienced issues with requests timing out if they took too long. With some performance improvements, this is now fixed.
We are also happy to let you know that the Ardoq ServiceNow add-on is now certified and published for the latest ServiceNow Paris release.
AWS Import Scheduling
The AWS integration received an update that makes life easier for org admins by providing support for routine syncs. Scheduled imports are now available for all admin users and can be found after running a successful test as seen below.
Multiple Account Support for Azure
Support for multiple Azure accounts is now available and open for all customers.
Add Visual Diff in Scenarios to Presentations
It is now possible to add the visual diff mode of the Block Diagram to a presentation when working with Scenarios. The presentation will show the viewpoint (mainline, diff, or your scenario) you selected when you added the slide, but you can toggle it directly in the presentation to easily compare the changes between your mainline and scenario.
Tip of the Day - Sort Your Timeline View Chronologically
When using the timeline view, it might come in handy to sort it chronologically. Here’s a little tip on how to do that:
