Changelog Enterprise Architecture Suite

2020-10-23

Improvement

  • Integration API: When creating a Webhook, admins can now select to use an existing technical user for authentication and authorization. All Webhooks created using a technical user are visible for all admins in the Developers section of the Administration area.

Bug fix

  • Administration: From now on, whenever the Subscription Mode of a workspace is set to ‘Required’ in the Administration area, the system respects the predefined roles as mandatory.

2020-10-21

Improvement

  • Integration API: The Integration API is now automatically enabled for all workspaces and can be found in the Developers section of the Administration area. Prior to this, you had to reach out to our Customer Success Manager to activate the Integration API for your workspace.
  • Metrics: The number of available metrics for a Fact Sheet is now displayed on the Fact Sheets tab bar.

2020-10-19

Improvement

  • Self-Service Portal: Accessing Self-Service Portals is now possible through the profile dropdown menu.

2020-10-16

Bug fix

  • Self-Configuration: Fields that are created on a relation using the Self-Configuration feature are now created on both sides of the relation.

2020-10-13

Improvement

  • Reports: The 'Aggregated Obsolescence Risk' view of the Application Landscape report no longer classifies Applications without underlying IT Component as 'No Risk' but instead classifies them as 'n/a'.
  • Survey: Fact Sheet elements now support conditional questions. Also, in case that two users answer the same survey, both answers are now displayed for the corresponding conditional question.
    And, the Excel export of survey results no longer contains JSON format for tags and subscriptions.

2020-10-12

Improvement

  • Reports: As announced earlier, the new button called "Show in Inventory" has been released and allows you to access the table view of the respective report in the inventory, including all set filters.

The table view in the inventory enables inline-table editing, Excel exports, and opening the list in another suitable report.

2020-10-08

Early Announcement

  • Reports: On Monday, October 12th, we will add a new button called 'Show in Inventory' next to the 'Settings' button on any report. The new button allows you to access the table view of the respective report in the inventory, including all set filters. This way, you can leverage all functionalities provided by the inventory to work with the table view, including Excel exports, inline-table editing, and opening the list in another suitable report.
    Please note that from Monday on, the Excel export functionality will only be accessible by navigating from the report to the inventory section as described above.

2020-10-08

Improvement

  • Inventory: The QuickSearch is no longer sensitive to accents (é, è, â, ç, ñ...) and umlauts (e.g. ö, ä, ü) meaning that in case you search for 'Überblick' and type in 'Uberblick' you still get 'Überblick' returned as search result.

Bug fix

  • Inventory: A bug was fixed that activated the Chrome “autofill” function for saved addresses in the browser when interacting with certain dropdowns in the report settings.
  • Reports: A regression has been fixed in the Landscape Report where relations for filtering are not handled transitive anymore. This means for a short time relations to all levels had to be added manually, this is not the case anymore.

2020-10-06

Improvement

  • Reports: In combination with the launch of the new Business Transformation Management module yesterday, a new version of Landscape Reports has been released for all customers. In addition to the new time slider, the Technology Risk View on the Application Landscape has been replaced.
    Instead of the Technology Risk view the ‘Aggregated Obsolescence Risk’ view is available on the Application Landscape now. It provides information comparable to the Technology Risk view with new color coding and an extended set of six statuses:
    • Unaddressed End-of-life Risk (like Not Supported)
    • Unaddressed Phase-out Risk (like In Phase out)
    • Missing Lifecycle (like n/a)
    • Risk Accepted (new, visible to all customers, only editable with TRM module)
    • Risk Addressed (new, visible to all customers, only editable with TRM module)
    • No Risk (like Supported)

The above order determines the weighting for the applied status for Applications. The two new values (Risk Accepted and Risk Addressed) get populated through a new field ‘Obsolescence Risk Status’ on the IT Component Fact Sheet which will be available later for customers using the TRM module.

Like in the Technology Risk view the visualized status in the new view is computed from lifecycle information of IT Components and their active relations to Applications and other IT Components. Besides direct relations also relations to Applications and IT Components are taken into consideration recursively. For IT Components hierarchical relations (parent-child) and ‘required by’ are considered, for Applications it’s only parent-child relations.
Dashboards and Saved Searches including Technology Risk views get updated automatically to the Obsolescence Risk view. The Technology Risk view on the Application Matrix remains unchanged.

2020-10-05

Bug fix

  • Survey: The 'Save as Draft' functionality now works for single Fact Sheet properties as an answer to a survey question.
  • Self-Service Portal: We fixed a bug that prevented Transient Users to access the portal.

2020-10-01

Improvement

  • Integration API: The concept of versions for configurations is introduced to the Integration API where users can specify the version number of configurations while saving. Keeping the current version number is always allowed. If a new number is provided, it needs to match the pattern "number.number.number" (e.g. 1.0.0). For connector configurations where versions match the version pattern, the table in the admin UI will only show the configuration with the highest number. Older versions are still available via dropdown. Editing existing and creating new configurations not following the schema is still possible but such configurations will not be used for any grouping.
  • Survey: The subscription property on the Factsheet element of Surveys now supports adding new users.

Bug fix

  • Survey: Deleting a Survey or Survey run now results in the removal of the run from the Survey tab of affected Fact Sheets.

2020-09-30

Improvement

  • Business Transformation Management: Today, we are excited to officially launch the Business Transformation Management (BTM) module. With BTM you can now collaboratively model architectural changes and impacts like in GitHub and visualize them like with a time machine. Compare the current architecture against different future state scenarios, make better data-driven decisions and easily apply modeled impacts to your EA documentation once transformation initiatives are executed.
    For BTM customers the current data model will be extended by two new Fact Sheet types:
    • Use Fact Sheets of type Objective to define high-level strategic goals, track progress, and identify affected business capabilities
    • Use Fact Sheets of type Transformation Item to break down high-level roadmaps into Plans, Building Blocks, Epics and Projects. These four subtypes are hierarchically ordered and hold attributes like Status, Timing, Implementation Risk, Priority, and Business Value. Also, all Transformation Items except for Plans have Impacts embedded. Displayed as a tab on the Fact Sheet, Impacts represent the expected results of an architectural change. Once you have made your decisions, execute Impacts to instantly introduce changes into your architecture landscape.
      Please note, that once you use BTM, your Project Fact Sheets will be migrated (based on an aligned migration path) to the Transformation Item Fact Sheets. The BTM module also comes with a set of new report types to support transformation efforts.
  • Reports:
    • Additional left and right properties, such as the Business Criticality or the Technical Fit, can now be visualized in the Business Capability Map and the Application Landscape Report.
    • An interactive timeline slider is now displayed on top of every Landscape Report. For example, using the Application Landscape report, this new feature allows to easily navigate the application lifecycles to instantly visualize changes in the IT landscape.
    • In the Application Landscape Report the 'Technology Risk View' is being replaced by the new view 'Aggregated Obsolescence Risk'. It provides information comparable to the Technology Risk View with the extended set of six statuses: 'Unaddressed End-of-life Risk', 'Unaddressed Phase-out Risk', 'Missing Life-Cycle', 'Risk Accepted'*, Risk Addressed'* and 'No Risk' (* only available with TRM).
  • Administration: When creating a Technical User, it is now possible to set access control entries (ACE). This allows to use Technical users in combination with Virtual Workspaces.
    Also, the message text in 'Sync Logging' is now cut to allow displaying multiple entries on the page in case of very long messages, in order to provide a better overview.

2020-09-29

Improvement

  • Survey: Admins can now add both, whole Fact Sheet segments as well as single Fact Sheet elements to a Survey at the same time.

Bug fix

  • Diagrams: The export of large diagrams into PDF in landscape orientation no longer results in a blank page.

2020-09-28

Improvement

  • Integration API: The Integration API may be called with an LDIF not containing a version number (connectorVersion). In this case the Integration API now looks for the configuration with the highest version number for processing. This only works if the connectorVersion in the configuration matches the pattern number.number.number.

Bug fix

  • Matrix Report: Drilldowns in Matrix Reports now show the correct Fact Sheet.

2020-09-25

Improvement

  • Integration API: The Integration API used to allow the configuration of a custom API token to authenticate against our backend. This functionality is now deprecated and will be removed in the future. Please use Technical Users instead. If standard API tokens are used in the configuration, the following warning will be displayed in the results of the Integration API run: “Support to provide API tokens as part of the Integration API configuration will be discontinued in the future. Please use "useTechnicalUser" instead“.

2020-09-23

Improvement

  • Self-Configuration: The Self-Configuration feature has been further improved. Admins can now delete sections given that they do not have any subsections attached to them. If subsections still exist, admins need to move them out of the section in order to delete the section.
    Also, we simplified the creation of single-select fields as LeanIX will automatically preselect different colors for every field value. Of course, admins can change the color whenever they want.
  • Integration API: The Integration API now allows to filter on any subscription metadata when setting the scope for automatic deletion of items that no longer exist. Check our DevDocs dev.leanix.net/docs for details.
  • Inventory: The table view now allows to display the current lifecycle phase as a column.
    Also, in case a relation subsection on a Fact Sheets details page intentionally has no values, you can now click the "Leave empty" button. This will positively impact the calculation of the completion score of the Fact Sheet as the respective subsection will no longer be taken into account.

Early Announcement

  • Integration API: Next week we will roll out a change that introduces the concept of versioning configurations to the Integration API. This change will ensure backward compatibility. All configurations will continue to work as before and as a first step, the configuration UI will start grouping configurations with different version numbers but the same other configuration keys into one, following the pattern “number.number.number”. From then on, only the grouped configuration with the highest version number will be displayed. Older versions can be accessed using a dropdown.

2020-09-18

Improvement

  • Self-Service Portal: In the portal configuration, specifically the 'Search' tab you can now enable 'Include search recommendations. The search is then extended to a semantic search based on Machine Learning. It no longer provides results which are based on matches in the inventory of the workspace, but also relevant hits based on background information.

Bug fix

  • Signavio Integration: The Signavio Integration is now more robust, resilient, and better handles configurations and service communication issues.
  • Inventory: The display of tags in a tag group in alphabetical order is now independent of upper or lower case.

2020-09-17

Improvement

  • Dashboards: Admins can now edit all dashboards independent from their read/write restrictions. This is especially useful in cases where multiple admins maintain the dashboards.
  • Self-Service Portal: We now support the display of additional Fact Sheet fields in the details view of the portal. To configure these, navigate to the 'Detailed View' tab in the Self-Service Portal configuration.
  • LeanIX Store: From now own, customers can distribute Integration API Configurations through the LeanIX store. All features available with Reports and Surveys are now also available with Integration API Configurations:
    • Create and edit Configuration properties
    • Define all levels of visibility to Configuration assets (and browse public configurations in the store browse-listing)
    • Define Terms and Conditions, requirements, how-to, disclaimers for Configurations
    • Add thumbnails and images to Configurations
    • Update configuration JSONs in GitLab and link up to store artifacts
    • Review, approve and publish Configurations into the store
    • Add Configurations to target workspaces from the store (requires that target workspace has the feature flag for Integration API Configurations enabled)
    • Archive or Create new versions of Configurations
    • Adding a Configuration to a workspace will overwrite any existing Configurations in the workspace with the same identifiers and processors

Bug fix

  • Reporting: Links in the Matrix Report no longer open the LeanIX Service Monitor. Now, they lead to opening the expected Fact Sheet instead.

2020-09-11

Improvement

  • Integration API: As announced earlier, today we change the way the Integration API returns durations in statistics and progress endpoint. Please adjust the readers to the new “ISO 8601 Duration” format.

2020-09-10

Improvement

  • Self-Service Portal: The Self-Service Portal now supports a logic that hides the action button on the details view based on the Fact Sheet status value. For example, the action button will be disabled on the details view of a Fact Sheet with an ‘Approval denied’ status.
  • Survey: Fields that are rendered as text boxes on the Fact Sheet are now rendered as such in a survey. Also, admins can now select a date field as Fact Sheet element and respondents enter the date by using the displayed date picker.

Bug fix

  • Inventory: New Project Fact Sheets now support adding more than one project status to the Fact Sheet.

2020-09-09

Improvement

  • Survey: In the "Status & results" tab of the Survey configuration, admins can now trigger a reminder for a survey run on-demand and also see how many reminders have been sent for a specific survey run.

The email template for the reminder is configurable and reminders are only sent out to users that are required to answer. Users that have already finalized their answers are not reminded again.

  • Inventory: When navigating to the "Last Update" tab on a Fact Sheet details page and hovering over the time of an event, from now on the date and time of a change is displayed in a hover message in the date-time format YYYY-MM-DD HH-MM-SS in the 24 h format.

Bug fix

  • Inventory: We no longer support locations without country code. For example, from now on we only return one geolocation for Ireland.

2020-09-04

Early Announcement

  • Integration API: Today, we announce that on September 11 the Integration API will change the way it returns durations in statistics and progress endpoint. The new format will be the “ISO 8601 Duration” format and with this change, we use the same duration format across all integrations. Please adjust the readers accordingly in case you parse the content.

2020-09-01

Improvement

  • Self-Service Portal: The free text search functionality can now be configured to also support "search in description". This allows users to search Fact Sheets by the description and can be activated by admins in the Search tab of the portal configuration.

2020-08-24

Improvement

  • Self-Configuration: The Self-Configuration feature has been further improved and admins are now able to fully configure Fact Sheet types to best fit their needs:
    • Adjust the size of fields, e.g. render two fields next to each other
    • Create and delete sections and subsections

Bugfix

  • Self-Service Portal: Line breaks in the details view of Fact Sheets are now rendered properly.

2020-08-24

Improvement

  • Survey: The survey functionality has been further improved and now supports a new type of survey question called ‘Fact Sheet element’. This question type allows the survey designer to bind a single Fact Sheet element as the answer. The following types of Fact Sheet elements can be selected:
    • Fact Sheet fields of type single-select or text - in this case, a drop-down with the field values is used as the answer form for the survey question.
    • Tag groups - in this case, the tag values for the tag group are used as an answering form. They are rendered as a single select drop-down, if the tag group is configured to be single-valued, and as a multi-tag picker otherwise. Tags in the survey are rendered in the same visual form as on the single Fact Sheet.
    • Subscriptions - here the survey designer needs to select a subscription type and an (optional) subscription role. In the survey form, subscriptions are rendered as a multi-select type ahead showing user names and their corresponding email addresses.

Selected Fact Sheet elements in the survey response are saved as part of the survey, as well as in the Fact Sheet itself as soon as the survey page has been finished by the survey recipient. They are shown as answers in any survey export, as well as on the Survey tab on a Fact Sheet.

2020-08-21

Improvement

  • Inventory: When adding a relation to a Fact Sheet, the system prevents from choosing the same target Fact Sheet more than once for each kind of relation.
  • Self-Service Portal: Additional improvements are:
  • It is possible to configure filters, either based on a Fact Sheet field or a Tag Group. Until now, all available field values or tags were displayed as filter options, even if selecting the value or tag as a filter would not produce any results. Now filter values or tags that result in zero results are no longer displayed as filter options.
  • The Self-Service Portal configuration in the administration area has been restructured to provide improved usability.

2020-08-18

Improvement

  • Self-Service-Portal: A Fact Sheet's details page in the Self-Service Portal now only displays the first two relations of each type and a 'more' option, in cases where more than two relations exist. This increases usability whenever too many relations exist.
    Also, it is now possible to configure a static footer for the Self-Service Portal.
  • Self-Configuration: Admins can now configure for every section and subsection whether it is included or excluded from view for users. Formerly, sections could be enabled/disabled from view in the Fact Sheets types settings.

2020-08-18

Improvement

  • Inventory: When adding lifecycle data in the UI, the system now offers users a start field date selection based on the previous field.
  • Self-Service Portal: Further improvements of the Self-Service Portal include:
    • Introduction of a new icon picker to define the status displayed on Fact Sheets in the portal
    • Use a Fact Sheet's resources as the primary action button in the portal details pop up. Please note that prior to using the resources as a primary action, they need to be configured in the Resource tab on a Fact Sheet's details page and enabled in the portal configuration.
  • Configuration of the static header links, e.g. to include Documentation details or FAQs. Please note that displaying multiple links is supported and the configuration is optional. Also, the FAQ content can be edited using markdown. A quick reference to the markdown file format can be found here https://www.markdownguide.org/cheat-sheet/.

2020-08-14

Improvement

  • Self-Service Portal: The Self-Service portal has been further improved. Admins can now perform the following configurations:
    • Navigate to the portal using the new "Save & Open" button. The button allows admins to save and simultaneously open the portal in a new tab to see the changes immediately.
    • Customize the branding of the Self-Service Portal in the branding tab.
  • Configure the resource links for a Fact Sheet to be displayed in the details mode with a default label and an optional tooltip.
    Please note that selecting resource types is optional. Also, for each resource type, a fallback name/URL can be configured that is displayed whenever a Fact Sheet does not have any resource of the configured type.
  • Display a link to the Fact Sheet in LeanIX on the details pop-up. While this functionality was supported as an advanced configuration option for some time, we now support enabling/disabling it. A tooltip for the link can be provided as part of the configuration. The link is only shown to users that are known in the LeanIX workspace.
  • Administration: The display of the completion score on a Fact Sheet details page can now be hidden from display by disabling in the Settings section of the Administration area.

2020-08-12

Improvement

  • Integration API: The Integration API now allows admins to configure a “read-only” mode for tags. If enabled, the Integration API will not create tags automatically that does not yet exist.
    The default has the "read-only" mode disabled, allowing to automatically create tags on the fly.

Bug fix

  • Reports: The time frame view of the Matrix Report now handles drill-down items with restricted relation validity correctly and displays them in a more consistent way.
  • Self-Service Portal: Changing the portal title after the initial set up is now possible.
  • Self-Configuration: Moving a field of type "base_field" fields from the unused section to any other section is now possible. Also, prior to this release, the global averages were too low. This calculation error is now fixed and the global averages are represented again.

2020-08-10

Improvement

  • Self-Configuration: Admins can now change the order of sections, the order of subsections within a section, or even move a subsection to another section. Therewith, the data displayed on Fact Sheet types can be even more customized to individual needs.
    Also, admins now get the following warning displayed in case a wrong format, such as number only, is applied for the key of a new field: "Keys cannot be numbers only".

2020-08-05

Improvement

  • Self-Service Portal: Admins can now overwrite the display name for any static string in the Self-Service Portal ‘Translations’ configuration, including ‘Search’, ‘Result’, ‘Sort’, and ‘LeanIX Fact Sheet’. As a key use case, Self-Service Portals can now be set-up in non-English languages.
    Also, admins can now choose which resources, e.g. Support Ticket, FAQ, Additional Help, to display in the Fact Sheet details of the portal.

Bug fix

  • Smart Indicators: Opting-in to the Smart Indicators program multiple times no longer displays legacy Smart Indicator dashboards but only one Smart Indicator dashboard.
  • Self-Configuration: Admins are now able to specify the “readOnly“ property of fields on relations in Self Configuration, making the field only editable through API or integrations.

2020-07-31

Feature

  • Smart Indicators: With LeanIX Smart Indicators, we enable admins to analyze the progress of their EA practice with calculated statistics based on current and past indicator data. The following indicators are now available as part of a "Smart Indicators Dashboard" (blue bars in the chart below):
    • Functional and Technical Fit across all Application Fact Sheets in a workspace with the status 'Phase-in', 'Active' and 'Phase-out'
    • Technical Risk calculated as the ratio of IT Components which are 'End of life' and directly/indirectly linked to Applications

In addition to analyzing your progress, admins can compare their performance with calculated global averages from other LeanIX customers. These benchmarks are anonymously aggregated when more than ten customers enable the feature (grey area of the chart). Until then, customers have their own average statistics displayed.

Improvement

  • Inventory: In the Tagging section of the Administration Area, next to listing all tags in a tag group and the number of Fact Sheets carrying each tag, we now render the number as a link which directly navigates to a filtered inventory view showing all Fact Sheets with the respective tag.
  • Integration API: The Integration API outbound runs now show detailed statistics as inbound runs already did in the past. These statistics help to get detailed insight into execution times and help to optimize the performance of Integration API runs.

Bugfix

  • Inventory: In case a user wants to save a report or search using an "f" in the description, the "f" will no longer be recognized as a short cut to open the SmartSearch but as a character.

2020-07-30

Improvement

  • Self-Service Portal: The portal configuration has been further improved. Admins can now:
    • Configure the logo used in the header of their portal: default, re-use of the workspace configured custom-logo or none.
    • Display the default status on each Fact Sheet.
    • Enable the portal for 'Transient' role: The 'Transient' role was added to the existing 'Viewer', 'Member', 'Admin' roles. By selecting the 'Transient' role, admins grant access to any user with a proper SSO authentication access to the portal, independent of whether the user is known in a LeanIX workspace or not.

Also, in the details view of a Fact Sheet, the descriptions were cut off in cases that were longer than 3-4 lines. Now, 8-10 lines will be displayed to provide more information.

2020-07-27

Improvement

  • Self-Configuration: Using the Self-Configuration feature, admins are now able to perform the following action on relations:
    • Create fields of type string, integer, double, single- or multi-select on relations
    • Reorder relation fields
    • Set the icon of a single-select field (icon, color, and order)
    • Add values to existing relation fields of type single- and multi-select
    • Change the render type of existing relation fields
  • Integration API: The Integration API is now protected against unintentional deletion. The deletion scope always allowed a setting to not delete items if the ratio of existing vs. to be deleted items was above a configured value. With this change, the default is always set to 50% in case the admin did not define a ratio own value.
  • Administration: The Data Privacy section in the menu can now be hidden from display upon request by your Customer Success Manager. Additionally, in case a customized data privacy document exists, this can be added to be displayed.

2020-07-24

Improvement

  • Reports: Users can now configure their Matrix Reports based not only on a Fact Sheet type but also custom relations to other Fact Sheets types.
  • Signavio/ServiceNow Integration: The Signavio and Service Now integrations now provide a mechanism to avoid unwanted deletions caused by data, communication, or software issues. The deletion ratio can be configured, whereas the default is at 50% with all items below 10 always deleted.

Bug fix

  • Inventory: The alphabetical and reversed alphabetical sorting option of the full name column in table view now works for the inventory as well as the Application Landscape Report.

2020-07-23

Improvement

  • Integration API: The Integration API now allows to filter Fact Sheets in the outbound processor that have not been changed in a configurable time span. This allows to incrementally export only changed Fact Sheets and does not force external systems to work with a full set of Fact Sheets for every data export.

Bug fix

  • Administration: Label changes made through Self-Configuration or the translation model are now persistent.

2020-07-21

Improvement

  • Survey: If a Fact Sheet segment is added to a survey, admins are no longer able to choose the send all users, incl. contacts, option.

Bug fix

  • Survey: Surveys that run with a large number of Fact Sheets sometimes run into a timeout after the "Run survey" button is clicked. Now, these timeouts are captured and instead of displaying an error message, the following message is being displayed: “Survey has been submitted, but is still processing. Please check on status again later - do not resubmit survey!”. This avoids that the same survey is accidentally run again by the admin.

2020-07-15

Bug fix

  • Inventory: When trying to delete a value from an integer field through inline table editing, the system no longer displays an error message but accepts the deletion.
  • Self-Configuration: Admins using the Self-Configuration feature to create a new field of type string and render it as "date" no longer get an error message displayed as the system now recognizes the type date as a string.

2020-07-10

Improvement

  • Inventory: Customers seeking to no longer display the completion score on a Fact Sheet details page can now reach out to their Customer Success Manager who will then configure the complete score to not be displayed anymore. Please note that once turned off, the completion score will no longer be displayed on a Fact Sheets detail page, its weight in the settings, or in the table view. It can be switched on again at any time.

Bug fix

  • Administration: The system now loads and displays all tags in the Tagging section of the Administration area.

2020-07-09

Improvement

  • Reports: Hovering over the additional properties on a Landscape Report now displays further information. Moreover, if the number of icons is more than five, the icon shows the total number of categories for the property in addition to the given state.
  • Integration API: Integration API now allows to use the recently added support for a matching of entities based on the result of a defined search in the processor to execute variable updates only. This allows aggregation use cases, where firstly values from different Fact Sheets need to be collected, and secondly they need to be added to a target location by another processor. Details can be found in the documentation https://dev.leanix.net/docs.

2020-07-08

Improvement

  • Inventory: In our table views, when hovering over the column header a hover message is now displayed showing the full title of the column header.
  • Self-Service Portal: Defining the setup of Self-Service Portals, admins can now configure the displayed status for each Fact Sheet. The possibility to configure default status will soon be released.

Please note that the status for each Fact Sheet can be based on the value of the Ordering State field on the Fact Sheet. This field can be made visible by using the Self-Configuration feature and moving it from the "Unused Fields" section to another section, e.g. "Name & Description".
Furthermore, admins can now configure the Relations which will be displayed on the details screen of a Fact Sheet.

Bug fix

  • Inventory: The option to expand cells in order to read the whole text of a multi-line input field in the table view is now stored with the saved search or the report.

2020-07-06

Improvement

  • Self-Configuration: Using the Self-Configuration feature, admins are now able to create fields of type single-select and multi-select. Also, new field values can be added to existing single-select and multi-select fields. Please note, that for the time being it is not possible to remove values by using the Self-Configuration feature.
  • Self-Configuration: Admins can now change the renderer of existing Fact Sheet fields.
  • Self-Configuration: Using the options tab of the Self-Configuration feature, admins can now specify for fields whether they pop up in the facet filters or are available as a view in the reports area.

Additionally, upon the creation of new fields, admins are now able to specify whether a field is included in the quick search or the full-text search.

  • Integration API: The Integration API is now capable of reading metrics information and using the information to export in outbound processors as well as using the data to write to any fields of pathfinder. Even calculations and combining with information taken from the input LDIF is possible.
  • Integration API: The Integration API now adds a helper functionality to merge two lists of values in order to provide a simple way to iterate over each value of both lists in one step. Details can be found in https://dev.leanix.net/docs.

Bug fix

  • Integration API: The Integration API now ignores any request to create a subscription or to create a user if the incoming data does not define the user's email address.
  • Inventory: Configured read-only fields on a Fact Sheets details page, that are usually filled through the Integration API or other integrations, are now respected by the system to be read-only and cannot be edited by users.
  • Dashboard: When displaying metrics on the Dashboard, the whole x-axis as defined in the metrics chart is now displayed.

2020-06-29

Improvement

  • Self-Service Portal: The position of the action button can now be configured to be shown on top, at the bottom, top, and bottom of the listed Fact Sheets or not shown at all. Also, multiple tag groups can be configured to be used as filters shown above the Fact Sheets, as well as specific items from the list of filters can now be excluded by defining an exclusion list.

2020-06-26

Bug fix

  • Reports/Diagrams: In order to enhance the user experience around “Views” both in Reports and Diagrams, we introduced a scrollbar that accommodates to your web browser zoom settings.
  • Inventory: Admins are now able to import an excel file into the inventory that contains a field defined as an integer in the data model. The system now allows the integer value and does no longer show any error regarding the integer value.

2020-06-24

Improvement

  • Integration API: The Integration API now allows some standard aggregation features for all lists of data. Supported methods are Sum, Distinct, Average, Min, Max. Please see the documentation https://dev.leanix.net/docs for more details.

Bug fix

  • Reports: Users can now select between different relations of the same Fact Sheet type when defining the "Cluster By" option of the Landscape Report. For example, if Applications are related to a User Group and also a User Group Country Fact Sheet, you can now choose which relation the Landscape Report view should be clustered by.

Feature

  • Self-Service Portal: We are happy to launch the Self-Service Portal. LeanIX admins are now able to configure dedicated Self-Service Portals and set defined scopes over existing LeanIX data for use within an easily accessible web portal. The following use cases are possible:
    • Application Portal: Provide a lean inventory of your Applications indicating responsibilities and key attributes
    • Technology Portal: List technologies that you want to allow/limit for use
    • Mobile App Catalog: List your Mobile Applications
    • API Catalog: List Public, Enterprise and System APIs for a broader audience to allow for more and faster integrations
    • Process Catalog: Provide an overview of the key processes, their criticality (e.g. towards the current pandemic situation) and the assigned responsibilities

Depending on your individual use case, the usage of a Self-Service Portal will enable a higher degree of self-service and empowers employees to find relevant information fast and easy.
The Self-Service Portal is available in the Add-On section of the Administration area and comes at no additional cost for all customers. As a starting point, an out-of-the-box Application Portal is available via the UI. We will continuously be improving the Self-Service Portal to enable more configurations via the UI.
Further details can be found here https://docs.leanix.net/docs/self-service-portal

2020-06-12

Improvement

  • Integration API: The Integration API now allows advanced filtering of the scope for automatic Fact Sheet removal if the element is no longer available on the source system. The processor configuration allows configuring a marker if a Fact Sheet is no longer referenced by a specific source. In case the same Fact Sheet is potentially referenced by multiple external sources, the Fact Sheet will only be deleted if it is no longer available in the last referenced source. See https://dev.leanix.net/docs for more details.

Bug fix

  • Signavio Integration: Navigating to the Resources tab on a Fact Sheet details page, customers with an existing Signavio Integration now get their process images displayed as resources.
  • Inventory: When creating a relation that already exists and would, therefore, be a duplicate, LeanIX now prevents users from selecting a Fact Sheet more than once. For any relation, a Fact Sheet can only be added once.

2020-06-09

Administration

  • Integration API: As announced earlier, the Integration API was successfully moved and is now visible in the Developers section of the Administration area.

2020-06-08

Feature

  • Self-Configuration: Using the Self-Configuration feature on Fact Sheet types, admins are now able to create fields of type string, double and integer. Additionally, fields on the Fact Sheet can be moved within and between appropriate subsections. For the time being, fields cannot be deleted, but it is possible to move them to a special subsection, e.g. “Unused Fields“, where they are hidden from display.

2020-06-05

Announcement

  • Integration API: Today we announce that on Tuesday, June 9, we expect to release the movement of the Integration API within the Administration area, specifically from the Administration section to the Developers section.

2020-06-03

Feature

  • Self-Service Portal: Thanks a lot for all your feedback on the display of the "Ordering Request Status" field on the Application Fact Sheet. Consequently, we decided to no longer display the “Ordering Request Status” field on the Application Fact Sheet as a default. However, it is still displayed as a row in the table view of the inventory.
    Upon launch, customers interested in configuring your own Self-Service Portals please reach out to your Customer Success Manager who will then enable the field's visibility on the Application Fact Sheet.

2020-05-28

Feature

  • Self-Service Portal: On last week’s virtual EA Connect Day we announced the launch of the Self-Service Portal on June 19. With this upcoming release, admins will be able to configure dedicated Self-Service Portals and make a defined scope of existing EA data easily accessible to a broad audience, e.g. to order software or find application knowledge.
    To prepare the launch, an additional single-select field “Ordering Request Status” was added to the “Name & Description” section of the Application Fact Sheet.
    The field is only visible if a value is selected. The following values are available: Approved, Limited Approval w/Conditions, Approval requested, Approval denied.
    To make use of this field, admins access it using the edit mode of the “Name & Description” section or use the inline table editing functionality.
  • Inventory: On a Fact Sheet detail page users can now collapse and expand sections. LeanIX will remember the state of collapsed or expanded for each section and Fact Sheet type.

Bugfix

2020-05-20

Integration

  • Apptio: We are delighted to launch the product integration with Apptio, the leading provider of Technology Business Management (TBM) solutions, which enables enterprise architects to automate data transfers from LeanIX to Apptio to support cost calculations and allocations. After configuring and initializing the integration, a scheduled data pull creates tables in Apptio's TBM Studio for all selected Fact Sheet types (e.g. User Groups, Business Capabilities, Applications, IT-Components, Provider, Projects) and their relations. The newly created tables in Apptio follow a naming convention and start with "lx..." so that they are easy to find. This data can be used to explore complex financial analytics and better understand cost calculation and allocation.
    The Apptio integration is included in the APM base module (new pricing). For existing customers (old pricing), the integration needs to be added to the contract. Additionally, an "Apptio Cost Transparency for Applications and Services" license is required.
    Admins interested in the integration please reach out to your LeanIX Customer Success Manager.
    Further details can be found here https://docs.leanix.net/docs/apptio-integration

  • Lucidchart: Also, we are happy to launch the partnership and product integration with Lucidchart, the leading visual workspace that combines diagramming, collaboration, and data visualization to translate strategic IT planning into actionable solution architectures.
    With this integration, users in LeanIX can now choose Lucidchart as a third diagram type and take advantage of its wide range of diagram templates and shape libraries. The integration features the import of existing Lucidchart documents into LeanIX and to link them to Fact Sheets or export existing LeanIX diagrams to Lucidchart to and apply Lucidchart's features for styling visualizations. Additionally, existing LeanIX diagrams can be converted into Lucidchart documents to preview, open, and edit in Lucdichart.
    The Lucidchart integration is available to current LeanIX (old & new pricing) and Lucidchart subscribers (Enterprise & Team licenses) at no additional cost. Further, LeanIX customers not yet subscribed to Lucidchart can access the platform with a 7-day free trial.
    Admins interested in the integration please reach out to your LeanIX Customer Success Manager.
    Further details can be found here https://docs.leanix.net/docs/lucidchart-integration

2020-05-15

  • Reports: Applying the lifecycle filter on the Applications-Business Capability relation in the Application Landscape Report works now accurately.
  • Inventory: The readability of the Relations Explorer in a Fact Sheet detail page was improved by introducing ellipses in the middle of a Fact Sheet's name. This enables users to see the beginning and end of the full name of a Fact Sheet while using the Relations Explorer and makes identifying versions of Fact Sheets easier.

2020-05-05

Feature

  • Self-Configuration: We are happy to announce the launch of Self-Configuration. This new feature unifies a set of functionalities that enable admins to configure the data structure for a Fact Sheet type and tailor it quickly to their company-specific needs. Using Self-Configuration admins can now change labels for fields, sections, subsections, and Fact Sheet types as well as define translations for fields on configured Fact Sheet types that are not available in the standard workspace translation. Furthermore, altering the help text description of fields and subsections is now possible.
    The Self-Configuration feature is included in the APM base module or available with any configuration package and is automatically activated for all workspaces. Further details can be found here https://docs.leanix.net/docs/self-configuration

2020-04-29

Improvement

  • Integration API: The automatic deletion feature of the Integration API has been improved to allow defining the scope of Relations that are in scope to be deleted if no update was seen in the incoming file.

  • Inventory: Users now receive a notification once their subscription was removed from a specific Fact Sheet to inform them about the change.

Bugfix

  • Inventory: In cases where a Fact Sheet was used for adding tags and another Fact Sheet was opened on a different tab, the second Fact Sheet no longer gets displayed the tags of the firstly opened Fact Sheet. Instead, the correct tags belonging to that specific Fact Sheet are now displayed.
  • Inventory: Workspaces with auto-increment External IDs configuration are no longer affected by a dry run of excel import which would also increment the internal counter for the External IDs and therefore create big gaps in the distribution of External IDs. Now, External IDs are only incremented once a Fact Sheet is created.
  • Inventory: Users with the full configuration package are now able to hide fields from specific permission roles while still allowing them to create, update and delete relations that might affect those hidden Fact Sheet fields.

2020-04-10

Improvement

  • Dashboard: When navigating through LeanIX users now return to the recently viewed Dashboard instead of the default Dashboard.

2020-04-10

Bugfix

  • Inventory: We fixed a bug that caused the details page of a Fact Sheet to crash once you wanted to navigate to another Fact Sheet while the relations diagram popover was open.

2020-03-27

Improvement

  • Integration API: Admins configuring the Integration API to delete objects in LeanIX that are no longer referenced by the incoming data can now configure a security mechanism to avoid unintentional deletion. Therefore, the admin defines a threshold for the typical deletion rate. Once the total ratio of to be deleted objects exceeds this threshold, e.g. the sent data is incomplete, the security mechanism takes effect and prevents accidental deletion. Details can be found on https://dev.leanix.net/docs

2020-03-27

Bugfix

  • Survey: A bug was fixed that caused certain texts in Surveys to be displayed with HTML tags. Now, Survey texts are displayed correctly.

Bugfix

  • Inventory: We fixed a bug that caused an error in the system once a user tried to delete subscriptions with multiple roles.

2020-03-26

Improvement

  • Quality Seal: It is now possible to configure whether the Quality Seal breaks upon changes on related Fact Sheets or on specific fields. If a field is put onto the blacklist, then respective dependency fields also have to be included in the blacklist for the Quality Seal not to break. E.g. the field “name“ also requires "fullName" and "displayName" to be added to the blacklist.
    To specify the blacklist for fields and relations for the Quality Seal not to break, fields are now called "ignoreUpdatesForFields" and "ignoreUpdatesForRelations". Admins interested in this configuration please reach out to their Customer Success Managers.

2020-03-26

Improvement

  • Integration API: The Integration API now supports writing to external ID fields using the output section of inbound processors. This allows management of multiple external IDs using the Integration API. Before only standard fields like string, number, single- and multi-select, life cycle and location were supported.

2020-03-04

Bugfix

  • Diagrams: We fixed a buck that caused tooltips for shapes which can be dragged into diagrams to be placed incorrectly. Now, they are place correctly.

2020-02-28

Feature

  • Administration: With this release, Admins are now able to create technical users in the workspace administration. This new feature enables customers to run and track their integration environment changes via technical users and easily manage technical users independently from standard users. Prior to this feature, admins needed to create a separate user in their organizational IDP or used their own personal user to create API tokens for integrations. With technical users, admins can create API tokens that aren't associated with their user account, but instead are linked to a "technical user". Further benefits of the technical user include:
    • Admins can collaboratively manage technical users to review their Changelog, track who has control over them or refresh API tokens
    • Technical users can be subscribed to Fact Sheets for better integration building
    • The number of technical users is not limited and it is even recommended to create separate technical users for each integration

Further details and how to create a technical user can be found in the upcoming Product Information Newsletter and on https://docs.leanix.net/docs/technical-users

2020-02-28

Improvement

  • Integration: With this release, the integration API now supports processing very large LDIF files bigger than 100MB. In order to process such large files, the LDIF needs to be stored in a file storage such as the Azure blob storage.
