Changelog

2019-07-08

Improvements

  • Integration/Technopedia: With this release, admins are now provided with a setting in LeanIX to optionally disable any creation of Provider Fact Sheets and creating links to them in Technopedia.
  • Integration/Technopedia: With this release, admins are now provided with additional technical information to understand and fix any issues related to syncing Fact Sheets.

2019-07-05

Bugfix

  • Dashboard: We fixed a bug that caused to create a new window when users clicked on 'Home' button.

2019-07-03

Bugfix

  • Inventory/Lifecycle:With this release, users are now provided with accurate translations for a second, custom lifecycle field.

2019-07-01

Improvement

  • Inventory/Excel Import & Export: With this release, for Excel export and full export, users will now be provided with a description for “permittedReadACL” and “permittedWriteACL” fields in Readme sections.

Bugfixes

  • Search/Filter: We fixed a bug when users searched for Fact Sheets with a special character '+', they will now get the correct results.
  • Inventory: With this release, when users comment on Fact Sheets, Quality Seal will no longer be triggered to break.

2019-06-27

Improvement

  • Inventory: With this release, it is now possible in table view to distinguish the cells with an "Empty" value (i.e., intentionally left blank) and those without a value.

2019-06-27

Bugfix

  • Integration/Technopedia: With this release, Technopedia integration will not erase any information users may have added. This fix enables users to manually changes to providers created by Technopedia. However, for fields where Technopedia provides content, they will still be overwritten as long as the synchronization is enabled.

2019-06-24

Improvements

  • Integration/Technopedia: With this release, users can now update existing Providers and automatically create the missing relations in Technopedia to LeanIX. This improvement enables users to make synchronization issues actionable and easily change by looking in the logs.

The Technopedia integration is now able to identify and use already existing providers if the name of the provider exactly matches. In case there is already a link from an IT Component to a provider but the name of the linked provider does not match, the synchronization log will contain the expected name to allow users to manually change the name to allow matching. Alternatively, the link to the existing Provider may be removed to allow the integration to link another provider.

  • Visualizer: With this release, users will experience significant performance improvement in Visualizer while doing a drill-down in bigger diagrams.

2019-06-18

Bugfix

  • Inventory: With this release, users are now provided with a "+ Invite" link in Internet Explorer 11 to invite new users to a workspace.

2019-06-18

Improvement

Bugfix

  • Survey: We fixed a bug that caused power-features of Survey, namely ‘Fact Sheet Segment’ and 'Calculated Field' to be not saved when sub-sections of Survey was added or removed in the view model after the survey has been created. With this release, users can now save the changes made to power-features of Survey.

2019-06-11

Bugfix

  • Survey: We fixed a bug that caused SurveyRun to break when the name of the subscription role was changed.

2019-06-05

Improvement

  • Integration/Signavio: With this release, LeanIX admins can now disable the creation of relations in LeanIX by the integration in case they synchronize Fact Sheets of a specific type from LeanIX to a Signavio glossary Id. Admins can configure this new option by leaving the relation type empty. This option allows Admins to keep the Master for creating the specific relations on LeanIX side. The older version automatically created relations from Processes to the Fact Sheet type in LeanIX if admins selected the option to synchronize from LeanIX to Signavio.

Bugfix

  • Inventory: With this release, when users are editing multiple entries with in-line table editing mode, at the top right corner, they are now provided with the first number that shows how many changes are already done and the second number that shows how many changes there are in total.

2019-06-05

Bugfix

  • Reporting: We fixed a bug that caused an error when Excel exports with Subscriptions and Lifecycle were selected.

2019-05-31

  • Reporting: With this release in Roadmap reports, end-of-life icons will no longer overlap with Fact Sheet name.
  • Inventory: With this release, users can now find the Fact Sheet type by the translated name of Fact Sheet type.
  • Visualizer: We fixed a bug that caused white space to appear on the right when minimizing the left sidebar in Visualizer.

2019-05-21

Improvement

  • Reporting: With this release, Fact Sheet names will no longer overflow or have cut-off names in Landscape Reports. The maximum number of characters displayed in the Fact Sheet name box will be 48 characters and about 12 characters for a single line. If the display name is less than that and does not contain words that are too long for a single line (about 12 characters), they will be truncated with an ellipsis. For Fact Sheet display names that are too long, they will now have ellipses in the middle so the very beginning and end is always visible.

2019-05-20

Bugfixes

  • Inventory: We fixed a bug that caused an error message when users clicked on “Recently Viewed“ Fact Sheet Type.
  • Inventory: While editing Fact Sheets in "In-line Table Editing" mode, users are now provided with a notification to save/discard the changes that they have made.

2019-05-15

Feature

  • Integration/ServiceNow: With this release, during relations synchronization from ServiceNow to LeanIX, the integration can now handle relations that are modeled based on foreign field references in ServiceNow tables.​

2019-05-13

Improvement

  • Inventory: With this release, users can now scroll up to 50 relations to easily scroll through all options for Children/Relations on Fact Sheets.

Bugfixes

  • Integration/Technopedia:
    When users enable Technopedia Integration, information syncs from Technopedia to LeanIX. Often, information that is missing in Technopedia, would overwrite existing information on LeanIX. With this release, users are now provided with the ability to retain and also manually augment existing information even if the information/field is missing in Technopedia. This ensures that the Technopedia->LeanIX synchronization does not delete existing data from the Fact Sheet field.
  • Inventory:
    With this release, users can now receive Project status traffic light in "print version" of project Fact Sheet.

2019-05-09

2019-03-05

Improvement

  • Inventory: When trying to save a Subscription with validation errors (e.g. multiple Subscriptions for the same user) the error message now shows the user email instead of its internal UUID for the affected Subscription.

2019-02-27

Improvements

  • General/Log out: For Workspaces that use LeanIX MTM as their identity provider, the logout now also delegates a Shibboleth logout to our identity provider. A new login is only possible by entering user name and password again. Note: This will not affect any Workspace using a custom Identity Provider.

2019-02-20

Improvement

  • GraphQL/Survey: This release comes with a major performance increase of all queries related to survey recipient calculation, which was limiting some interactions with the survey module. This is especially helpful for larger recipient groups.

Bugfix

  • Visualizer/Free Draw: This release fixes a bug in the Visualizer in Free Draw where error message where shown when hovering over certain connections.

2019-02-18

Feature

  • Inventory/Table Inline Editing: This release brings new functionality to the Table Inline Editing and now allows you to also bulk edit subscriptions. You can add any user to your existing Subscription types or roles. Also, if a user does not exist yet, you can simply add him by entering the email address. By that, the person is shown in the Subscriber Page of the Fact Sheet, but will not be invited automatically. The invitation can still be triggered individually if needed. This functionality is especially helpful to e.g bring external service providers in context with projects or applications.

Improvement

  • Integration/Technopedia: This release improves the Technopedia Integration by adding a more detailed view of the data retrieved from Technopedia. This is true for already linked Fact Sheets as well as for Fact Sheets and assets that are about to be linked or that are newly created. Additionally, the linkage now syncs on top of the correct asset name, the provider and the lifecycle information also all other available data that can be stored in the Fact Sheet such as e.g. a category or a model (e.g. for Hardware).

Bugfixes

  • Reporting: The lifecycle for an Application Fact Sheet was wrongly displayed in the Application Landscape Report. As of now, the relation lifecycle is always taken into account when using the Matrix Reports in "Time Frame" mode. Also, before it was sometimes possible to click on hidden items in the Landscape and Matrix Report and the linked Fact Sheet would than be opened. Those hidden items are now no longer clickable.

2019-02-13

Improvement

  • Reporting: This release improves the user experience for embedding a Report. As of now, users are informed that
    1) changes to a Report need to first be saved as a Bookmark before they can be used in an embedded link (Screenshot 1)
    2) only shared or public Bookmarks can be viewed by others (Screenshot 2)

2019-02-07

Improvements

  • Visualizer: In this release, we improved the usability and performance of the sidebar in the Data Flow by only showing the data for the highlighted item instead of all items included in the diagram. This will especially help for larger Data Flow diagrams.
  • Integration/ServiceNow: The user can now choose from a drop-down list of available ServiceNow fields and is no longer required to type them into an input text box. This prevents spelling errors while configuring the integration. To use this improvement the following new role for the ServiceNow Integration user is required: “personalize_dictionary”.

Bugfixes

  • Dashboard: When navigating back to home from any other page, the last visited dashboard will be shown again.
  • Integration/ServiceNow: Now non-Editable/System Fields of LeanIX Fact Sheets are readOnly in ServiceNow UI configuration.

2019-02-05

Improvements

  • Inventory/Table Inline Editing: This update enables you to handle revision clashes in the Table Inline Editing in a similar way as you are used to from the Fact Sheet details view. If there are revision clashes you are given two options:
    Reload & discard: This will load the latest version of the affected Fact Sheet and discard all your local changes in the entire Fact Sheet.
    Save & overwrite: Saves all your current changes, even if that means that you overwrite someone else's edits for that part of the Fact Sheet. If also other parts of the Fact Sheet have been edited by someone else, both changes will be saved.
  • Reporting+Visualizer: To further improve the export to PNG in Reporting and Visualizer, the export now has no more whitespaces.
  • Visualizer: We improved the UI of the Visualizer by changing the styling of the outline window and Data Flow overlay icons as shown in the screenshot.

2019-01-31

Bugfix

  • Notifications: This release fixes an issue where all users of a Workspace received notifications about a comment in a Fact Sheet that was directed to a recipient that could not be found.

2019-01-30

Bugfixes

  • Integration/Technopedia: We found a problem with duplicate Technopedia records in LeanIX for the same version caused by the fact that the information stored in the Technopedia "version_order" field ("alpha", "beta", "GA") was not included in the synchronization. In this release, the information in this field, if any, is also included, which means that the name of Technopedia entries can be more accurately distinguished.
  • Search/Filter: Using the Quicksearch in Firefox 52 caused an unhandled error. This is fixed now.

2019-01-25

Bugfixes

  • Integration/Signavio: This version fixes a bug that caused periodic Signavio synchronization jobs to temporarily crash.
  • Inventory: Also, when changing the facet filter to another Fact Sheet type all filters not applicable to the new Fact Sheet type are now correctly removed.

2019-01-21

Improvement

  • Administration: As an Administrator, you are now able to filter the sync log entries by status or by action. To do so go to Administration/Sync Logging and select one of the sync jobs by clicking the date. Within each sync job, you are offered to filter e.g. for all sync entries with status 'error'.

Bugfix

  • GraphQL: In GraphQL the hierarchy level of a Fact Sheet is now displayed correctly regardless if on a top-level node or on any sub-level node. Previously, there was an error where a parent Fact Sheet was specified with an incorrect hierarchy level. This bug is fixed with this version.

2019-01-16

Bugfix

  • Inventory/Excel Import & Export: Fields like "Release version", that Excel may or may not automatically convert to a numeric field (e.g. "1.0") can now always be imported correctly.

2019-01-15

Features

  • Visualizer: You are now able to do undo/redo actions on any operation (e.g. drilldown, insert, ...) in the Visualizer (Data Flow, Free Drawing) by either clicking the undo/redo icons in the toolbar of the Visualizer or by using the following shortcuts for Windows/Mac.
    Undo = Ctrl + Z / Cmd + Z
    Redo = Ctrl + Y / Cmd + Y

Improvements

  • Administration: As of now, Admins can see who added a report to the Workspace in the Reports table in the Administration/Developers section (as shown in screenshot).
  • Reporting: The previously introduced new popup design for the Roadmap Report is now consistently available across all reports. It opens up when clicking a link to a Fact Sheet and shows detail information as well as a link to open the Fact Sheet in a new browser tab.

2019-01-14

Improvement

  • Integration/ServiceNow: This release improves the functionality of mapping between LeanIX and ServiceNow by also introducing Tag and Tag Group Mappings allowing to sync with ServiceNow reference fields, choice lists or string fields. Tags without a tag group are mapped via "other Tags". This way you are now able to transfer values from Tags in LeanIX to attributes in ServiceNow or vice-versa transfer e.g. choice lists from ServiceNow to Tags in LeanIX. For more information on the ServiceNow Integration read more in our documentation.

2019-01-10

Feature

  • Integration: To make syncing data from ServiceNow to LeanIX even more relevant, we now allow the administrator to filter the Fact Sheets that are synced from ServiceNow to LeanIX beforehand. By doing so only the selected Fact Sheets are actually synced.

Similar to this also the data that is Synced when ServiceNow is the master can be pre-filtered using constraints. Those constraints are based on existing filters created in ServiceNow.

Also, we removed the lifecycle filter constraint from the UI that was shown when synchronizing objects from ServiceNow to LeanIX, as it was not useful here. To learn more on the ServiceNow Integration check out our documentation: https://dev.leanix.net/docs/servicenow

Improvement

  • Integration: We increased the max size of images that can be linked to a Process Fact Sheet to 5 MB (before that the limit was at 1MB). 5MB is also the max image size Signavio supports.

Bugfix

  • Inventory: The Excel import now considers Subscription Roles for which the corresponding column does not exist in the source file and therefore no longer accidentally deletes these elements when the Excel is re-imported.

2019-01-08

Bugfix

  • Inventory/Smart Search: This release fixes a bug where the scrolling is broken in the Inventory Smart Search after filtering by "Data Quality: Quality seal broken". Scrolling is now working as expected again.

2019-01-04

Improvement

  • Integration: This release improves the Pivio export by making the user aware when either the External ID is not set, or the responsible subscription to the Fact Sheet is needed and missing.

2019-01-03

Bugfixes

  • Inventory: We now show the E-Mail address of the survey recipient as a fallback in cases the first and/or the last name of the recipient is unknown. Before this release, the field in the Survey tab of a Fact Sheet showing who filled out the Survey was empty if first and/or the last name of the recipient was unknown.
  • Inventory: The bug, where information on popups in a Fact Sheet (e.g. when clicking on a link such as a related Business Capability) was not fully readable because the popup was not wide enough, is now fixed. We fixed this bug by introducing a minimum width of 600px for popups.

2018-12-18

Feature

  • Reporting: The Interface Circle Map Report now shows a popup with "open in new tab" when clicking on a link, additionally with details when the link is a Fact Sheet link (see Screenshot).
  • Reporting: With this release, we also redesigned the popup in all the Roadmap Reports, to ensure a consistent look and feel for you as an end user.

2018-12-17

  • Reporting: We fixed an inconsistency in the Matrix Report with specific data constellations when using the "Expand all" button compared to expanding manually.
  • Integration: This release also improves the Signavio synchronization algorithm concerning relations, processes, and glossaryItem synchronizations.

Improvement

  • Inventory: This release fixes long text causing overflow in a Fact Sheet fields.

2018-12-11

Improvement

  • Reporting / Store: Selecting the same Custom Report with a different version will replace the other Report in the reporting menu. Duplicated entries of one Report in different versions are no longer possible.

comment]: # (deploy 4.0.835, v4.0.184)

2018-12-06

Improvements:

  • Inventory / Quick Search: The Quick Search experienced a design overhaul. The search term is now written directly into the input field instead of a field below of it. The default selected element is now the first result rather than the full-text search. We also improved keyboard navigation.

Bugfixes:

  • Inventory: This release fixes the root cause for validation errors when opening import results in Excel.
  • Visualizer: Ensure Data Flow diagram is correct when opening from Interface Circle Map.

2018-12-04

Improvement

  • Visualizer: With this release we enabled a functionality that allows to turn off custom shape styles in the Visualizer.

2018-11-30

2018-11-28

Bugfix

  • Reporting: We now ensure the title of a Custom Report is used by default for its entry in the Reporting menu.

2018-11-27

Improvement

  • Store: Now, the first custom Report that is added from the LeanIX Store to a Workspace is enabled by default, to improve UX for first-time users of the Store.

Bugfix

  • Integration: We have fixed a bug where the Signavio integration broke when a data type AGGREGATED was used in the data model and Fact Sheets were deleted after a Signavio sync.

2018-11-22

EA Connect Days - Top 3 Launches

We were proud to launch many new features and improvements on our annual conference the EA Connect Days 2018. The Top 3 launches will be described in more detail below.

Table Inline Editing
With this Release, LeanIX users are now able to alter details of their complete application inventories using inline editing functionality. It is an explicit change to the EA Management Tool’s user interface made to give more control to those wishing to define Fact Sheet elements, whether in bulk or individually, at a high-level view. Pull-down to fill-up menus, single- and multi-item selects, copies and pastes—the choice is yours. This new functionality is available in all editions as of now. The main functionalities are shown in the video below. The Table Inline Editing is available as of now and included in all LeanIX editions.

LeanIX Store
The next big release was all about offering a solution that supports further growth of collaboration and knowledge sharing amongst LeanIX users. With the LeanIX Store customers & partners alike get the chance to develop, provide and consume custom Reports to make use of the knowledge in the EA community.

Confluence Integrations
LeanIX and Confluence are now integrated to provide even more potential for collaboration for users and their stakeholders. LeanIX Reports plus all Bookmarked Views and Filters can be easily inserted into any Confluence Page with a guided Macro. These Reports can be configured while the Confluence Page is published as if the user was still interacting in LeanIX (e.g., zooming, sorting, etc.). This data is still hosted in LeanIX, and the Reports are always shown live and in real-time.
The Integration tackles a common challenge of adopting EA Programs within a company by synchronizing with a tool used already by most companies.

  • Visualizer: When a report is exported as a png-image, this image is now displayed in a new view for preview and can be downloaded. With a right-click on the image, it can also be copied to the clipboard and pasted into any other application.

2018-10-11

Bugfixes

  • Inventory: It is now possible for a LeanIX Customer Success Engineer to create/activate and use fields of type "MULTIPLE_SELECT" in the facet filters.

2018-10-04

Bugfixes

  • Reporting: When a lifecycle filter with the time range 'all' is selected in the smart search, the start and end dates are now correctly set.
  • Inventory: We improved the load performance of the table view in inventory. It is now no longer decreasing the more the user switched between Inventory and other pages.
  • Reporting: The background click for closing open drop-down menus, e.g the smart search now also works in the reporting area.

2018-10-02 (part 2)

Bugfixes

  • Visualizer: The selection highlight style has been accentuated. Also, only when selecting a single item, the resizing points will be shown. For multiple item selections, no resizing points will be displayed.
  • General: This release also fixes the locales for temporal distance phrases (e.g. 2 months ago) in German.
  • General: We now allow timestamps without requiring a milliseconds part in MTM API calls. Before, timestamp-typed field values in REST requests caused an error when they did not contain a millisecond part.

2018-10-02 (part 1)

Bugfix

  • Home/Dashboard: With this release, we fixed the saving of customized dashboards, which for some customers was not working correctly.

2018-10-01

Bugfix

  • Inventory: This release fixes a bug where new users could no longer be subscribed to Fact Sheets. This is now working again.

2018-09-27

Feature

  • Integration: To help developers get started quickly with setting up the Pivio integration, we have implemented a feature that allows developers to download the pivio.yml file from the view of any application Fact Sheet. (Available only if Pivio is enabled for the workspace) The pivio.yml is generated by the Pivio integration and contains all current data of the application Fact Sheet.

2018-09-24

Bugfix

  • Visualizer: We fixed a bug where the right info sidebar in the Data Flow was not displayed correctly in IE11. Now, when selecting an application or interface, the sidebar with further information is visible.

2018-09-21

Improvements

  • Visualizer: We aligned the behavior between Free Draw and Data Flow regarding general shapes and containers. With these changes, in both Free Draw and Data Flow, only the "Container" shape can be used to nest other nodes.

Bugfixes

  • Visualizer: The "Select by filter" functionality now works again, even when a deleted edge is present in the graph. Before this release, when there was a deleted edge or interface in the diagram the "Select by filter" functionality crashed.

2018-09-20 (part 2)

Improvements

  • Dashboard: This release includes further configuration options for the Fact Sheet chart panel. It is now possible to:
    • limit the number of visible entries
    • hide the "n/a"-entry
    • sort entries by Fact Sheet count

2018-09-20 (part 1)

Features:

  • Home: The "Last Login" section in the Home section now displays the current last login (e.g. if the user last logged in to LeanIX the previous day, this day is displayed). Before this version, the current login from a few seconds ago was displayed as the last login.

2018-09-19

Features:

  • Inventory: Fact sheet subscriptions can have multiple subscription roles attached. With this release, it is now possible to add comments to each attached role individually. (Not to be confused with the description of a subscription role.)

Bugfix:

  • Visualizer: We fixed a bug in the Data Flow, where it was not possible to move a Fact Sheets out of general shapes. This now works as expected.

2018-09-18

Bugfixes

  • Reporting: With this release, all cost values in the cost chart are now rounded to a sensible length (max two digits)
  • Integration: We fixed the issue where both the ServiceNow and Signavio Sync created and deleted relations and objects over and over again. Now, exactly the required amount of synchronizations for objects and relations is triggered and resolved.
  • Inventory: We fixed the bad display of filters in "Choose columns" in the table view. Before, if the subscription name or subscription role name was long the "eye" icon was displayed badly. This is fixed now.

2018-09-14

Feature

  • Integration: With this release, a sync log entry is created and shown after the validation of a Pivio upload failed. This now makes it possible to trace if a synchronization did not work due to a validation error.

Bugfix

  • Integration: The Signavio manual synchronization can now be started by every admin. To ensure this, we removed the API Token creation for the manual full sync.

2018-09-10

Features

  • Visualizer: In the Data Flow, you can now show interfaces or drill down on related Fact Sheets by using a filter. To do that right-click on an element (or a set of selected elements) and select the specific menu option, either "Show interfaces by filter" or "Drill down by filter" as shown in the screencast below.
  • Visualizer: With this release, you can now show dependencies, drill down or roll up on related Fact Sheets by using a filter in the Free Drawing. Similar to how it works in the Data Flow just right-click on an element (or a set of selected elements) and select the specific menu option, either "Show dependencies by filter", "Drill down by filter" or "Roll up by filter".

Improvements

  • Data Flow: We disabled unreasonable actions like copy, paste, duplicate only for Fact Sheet shapes. Other shapes like e.g. the cloud shape can still be copied, pasted and duplicated.

2018-09-07

Improvements

  • Data Flow: We were able to improve the performance of data loading by up to 50% using a more advanced way to fetch Fact Sheet hierarchies.

Bugfixes

  • Pivio Integration: The archiving and recreation of Fact Sheets now works as expected. IT components are now only removed when they are really no longer in use. In addition, the Synclog only displays relevant changes, e.g. when the library constellation is changed.
  • Signavio Integration: This version fixes the bug that sometimes several glossary elements were created on the Signavio page, although only one element should be created.

2018-09-03

Improvement

  • Visualizer: With this release, we optimized the GraphQL API by enabling gzip compression for GraphQL responses in Pathfinder. By doing so responses now load many times faster.

2018-08-31

Bugfixes

  • Visualizer: We reactivated common actions such as “Copy”, “Paste” & “Duplicate” in the Data Flow diagram.

2018-08-29

Feature

  • Integration: In the pivio.yml file relations can now be added which are synchronized to already present FactSheets. This enables e.g. the classification of Microservices by business capability or user group.
    For example:
relations:
  - relApplicationToBusinessCapability:
    - HR / Payroll
    - HR / Accounting
  - relApplicationToUserGroup:
    - USA
    - Germany / Bonn
    - Germany / Munich

Bugfix

  • Home/Dashboard: Adding a Fact Sheet chart, configured to show the technical fit field of application Fact Sheets to the Dashboard does no longer show an error.

2018-08-27 (part 2)

Improvement

  • Inventory: With this release, we improved the scrolling in the table view of a Fact Sheet in different ways:
    • We moved the scroll bar to where the scrolling is happening - from the window view to the Fact Sheets table view.
    • The header of the table is now fixed to the top of the page and therefore viewable, even when scrolling down.
    • Overflowed content is no longer cut off but displayed within the table cells.

Bugfix

  • Integration: This release fixes an error, where also archived Fact Sheets were returned when importing software dependencies from Pivio. To fix this we also added a new status parameter on the graphQL query 'factSheets'.

2018-08-27 (part 1)

Improvement

  • Integration: This release enables configuration of external links from a Fact Sheet to Signavio, both for links on the right-hand side of the Fact Sheet and in the documents tab of the Fact Sheet. Additionally, changes that are made to the data model regarding those links are now also synchronized for existing Fact Sheets after doing a full sync.

Bugfixes

  • Inventory: With this release, we prevent an error which occurs sometimes when viewing Fact Sheet subscriptions after importing data. Also, Export and Import now work as expected and do not create subscriptions with non-existing user_ids anymore.
  • Visualizer: It is no longer possible to perform unreasonable actions such as duplicating applications or disconnecting interfaces in the Data Flow diagram. We prevent those actions because the Data Flow is used to view connections between Applications and Interfaces, but not to remodel them. To ensure consistency those unreasonable actions are no longer supported.

2018-08-24

Improvements

  • Inventory: With this release, we optimized the overall performance and memory usage of the inventory filter by 25% for filters with low/medium complexity to up to 80% for filters with high complexity. Alongside this optimization, we also slightly adjusted the behavior of the filter to improve the user experience, as shown in the examples below.

Previous to this release, for a selection in a filter facet with a fixed number of facet entries (e.g. Business Criticality), all other facets entries were treated as if no filter was set. Now, only the count of hits for the selection made is shown.

Before this release, for a selection in a filter facet with a dynamic number of facet entries (e.g. User Groups) all other entries were also treated as if there was no filter set. Now the selected facet entry is moved to the top of the facet and only the value for the selected facet is displayed. Additionally, the remaining facet entries are now displayed and sorted by their count based on the applied filter. Only entries in the sub-quantity of the checked entry are shown. E.g. in the Screenshot below France is checked and has a count of 14. As the filter now also applies within the facet the entries shown beneath are all positive hits within the total of 14. To translate the result further, that means that in total there are 14 applications with the user group France. The largest sub-quantity of those are also associated with Australia, the least with Headquarters. The most obvious thing two notice in the screenshots is, that on the right the USA is not in the sub-quantity of France and instead Poland is shown.

2018-08-21 (part 2)

Improvements

  • Reporting: Changes to the table configuration in reporting (e.g. adding a column) are now also saved to the bookmark. This means, the table view is now properly restored when loading a reporting bookmark.

Bugfixes

  • Inventory: This release fixes a bug where after deleting a parent Fact Sheet the display name of the child Fact Sheet was displayed incorrectly. Before the bug was that after deleting the parent Fact Sheet the child had the display name Parent_<deleted>__... / Child when it was supposed to appear as Child. This is fixed now.

2018-08-21 (part 1)

Improvements

  • General: To better reflect the overall design of LeanIX, we have updated the look & feel of the login form as shown in the screenshots below.

2018-08-20

Improvement

  • Visualizer: In the Data Flow report, we now prevent a drill-down to nodes that are not application type fact sheets. The reason for this is that the Data Flow report is all about representing the data flow between applications via interfaces. For example, the user can drill-down an application to display the IT components it uses. However, it is not possible to break down these IT components further, to prevent applications from appearing nested as child nodes nested in other nodes since this is not the intention of the Data Flow Visualizer.

2018-08-16

Bugfix

  • Reporting: In this release, we fixed a bug, where on some reports after filtering, especially with hierarchies, the resulting levels of hierarchies were clickable but lead to blank pages.

2018-08-13

Improvements

  • Visualizer: This version brings new improvements in the update functionality of the Visualizer:
    • When the Visualizer is switched to editing mode, all items (edges now as well as nodes) which would be removed by a refresh are now marked for removal with a red 'deleted' icon.
    • 'Check for updates' and 'Refresh' now also checks if items within a drill-down are still connected to their parent through a relation. If not, such a child item will be marked for removal and removed on refresh.
  • Visualizer: The 'Select by filter' now also works for edges that are not or only partially connected to a Fact Sheet. They are now included in the filter modal and can be selected in the diagram.

Others

  • Reporting Framework: Configured colors and icons (FieldMetaData) are now available to custom reports. This allows the developers to reuse the same colors and icons, which allows them to create reports that look and feel more like LeanIX.

2018-08-08 (part 2)

Improvement

  • Home / Inventory: This release improves the response behavior of the comment field on Home and in Fact Sheets. The response behavior is now independent of the number of comments.

2018-08-08 (part 1)

Bugfix

  • Visualizer: With this release, we fixed an issue where Data flow bookmarks where no longer accessible when using Internet Explorer. This bug is fixed now and Data flow bookmarks can now also be accessed from Internet Explorer again.

2018-08-07

Improvements

  • Visualizer: Changes of the Data Flow direction of a Fact Sheet of type Interface are now also reflected when running a refresh by clicking on "Refresh". Once the direction between two Interfaces changed, the Fact Sheet positions in the Visualizer switch accordingly.
  • Visualizer: The refresh algorithm now detects no longer valid relationships that have been created via drill down or rollup. For example, when you have drilled down on the children of a Fact Sheet and the Parent-Child connection no longer exists in the Inventory, the refresh would remove the child from the parents' container box.
  • Reporting: Views for fields of type SINGLE_SELECT can now be configured in terms of how they aggregate values ("MIN", "MAX", "OFF"). For more information visit our documentation.
  • Reporting: The drop-down menu for selecting a view has been cleaned up for more clarity.

2018-08-03

Bugfixes

  • Inventory: This release fixes an error where an end-of-life marker was incorrectly displayed in a fact sheet for which no end-of-life date was set. The error occurred after navigating from a fact sheet with a life cycle for which an end-of-life date was specified to a fact sheet without an end-of-life date.

  • Inventory: With this release not only the Fact Sheets themselves but also the relations of an archived or restored Fact Sheet are included in the audit trail as archived or restored.

2018-08-01

Bugfixes

  • Survey: We have fixed a bug where the user was able to submit an invalid survey response. This is no longer possible as the submit button is greyed out for invalid survey answers and only works again when there is no more validation error.

2018-07-31

Bugfixes

  • Reporting: We have fixed a bug where additional vertical or horizontal scrollbars were displayed in the reporting that prevented the user from using the actual scrollbar of the iframe.

2018-07-26

Improvements

  • Reporting: We improved the data fetching performance on our backend systems in cases where multiple levels of related Fact Sheets were requested. This positively impacts the performance especially within the Data Flow Visualizer and certain reports.

2018-07-23

Bugfixes

  • Survey: Regardless of the size of the Survey, the export of the results to Excel now runs smoothly and even faster than before (e.g. Survey with many Fact Sheets). Previously, the export of large survey results could lead to an error.

2018-07-20

Bugfixes

  • Inventory: When enabling an advanced filter on the IT components of applications, it is now possible to use the "Search for more" button at the "Requires" filter without causing an error. Bevor an error was shown when using the spying glass below a facet filter to specify the filter by name.

2018-07-18

Bugfixes

  • Reporting: With this release, we have made some corrections and improvements for the development of custom reports in Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge. Previously, trying to launch the custom report dev server in Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge was blocked due to missing functionality and the request for a self-signed SSL Certificate. For more information on how to develop custom reports on IE11 or Microsoft Edge, check out the Documentation.

2018-07-13 (part 2)

Bugfixes

  • Reporting: We improved the loading time in the circle map report. This is particularly noticeable when loading a high number of Fact Sheets.

2018-07-13 (part 1)

Bugfixes

  • Reporting / Inventory: All relation validity filtering (in relation facets, relation validity filter, and Matrix/Landscape report views) now use active sometime during semantics, like known from the Lifecycle filter. Before this release, it was active always during in some cases.

2018-07-10

Feature

  • Todos: Todos for Surveys are now created almost instantly. In the past, it could take up to one hour until the appropriate Todo was created after a new SurveyRun was started. The same holds true for finishing and deleting SurveyRuns: the Todos will get removed immediately.

2018-07-06

Bug Fixes:

  • Reporting: The load performance of the world map reports (Application Usage, Application Sourcing, IT Component Location) has been improved. Previously, some browsers (e.g. Firefox) canceled the calculation and the report was not displayed if the calculation took too long due to too large data sets. This is fixed now.
  • CMDB Integration: We have fixed the synchronization errors when two Fact Sheets have the same external ID. If in the past several Fact Sheets were found for the same external ID, all redundant Fact Sheets were taken into account. Now, when several Fact Sheets are found for an external ID, only the active Fact Sheets are considered. If more than one Fact Sheet is available, the synchronization of the current master item is skipped and a message is written to the synclog to allow the user to update the item.
  • Metrics: The LeanIX Fact Sheet now contains current metric data from pingdom.
  • Inventory: The N/A filter for relations combined with a time filter is now working as expected and returns the correct Fact Sheets.

v4.0.88 (2018-07-05)

Improvement:

  • Data Flow: On Select by filter, the filter dialog now also pre-selects the Interfaces present in the diagram.

Bugfix:

  • Inventory: The Save & Overwrite button now works as expected when there is a revision conflict during a Fact Sheet update.

v4.0.87 (2018-07-03)

Bugfixes:

  • Matrix: With this release, the lifecycle filter time range stored in a bookmark is correctly applied to the filter on relation validity.
  • Visualizer: The grouping of menu entries in the context menu (when right-clicking on nodes or edges) has been improved so that it makes more sense for the user.
  • Inventory: Lifecycle changes do not trigger notifications anymore if the FactSheet is ARCHIVED.
  • Inventory: We fixed the broken matching mode none of the selected filters in the relation facets. Before the fix, when negating a filter option, elements with multiple values were still displayed even though one of the values was negated. This is now fixed and none of the selected filters works as expected.

2018-07-02

Features

  • Visualizer: With this release, we introduce a new context menu for the Data Flow report. This new context menu allows the user to right-click on a Fact Sheet node and to open a new diagram with this node as a starting point.

v4.0.85 (2018-06-26)

Features

  • Inventory: Up to now, the period in which a relation between Fact Sheets is valid (activeFrom/activeUntil) was not considered for the Inventory filtering options. For example, if the active applications were filtered, the period in which they are active was not considered. With the new release, the period is now included and only what is actually active in the selected period is displayed in parentheses after the selected filter option. For more information check out the which rules apply when a validity filter is applied for a relation
  • Security: We are introducing an idle timeout detection. Therefore users will now get automatically logged out of LeanIX after one hour of inactivity. The idle timeout duration can be easily configured by the admin in the administration section of LeanIX under "Settings" - "Idle Timeout Duration". Setting the duration to 0 Hours and 0 Minutes disables this feature. For more information feel free to check out the Idle Timeout section in the LeanIX User Docs.
Screenshot - Idle Timeout Duration Settings

Screenshot - Idle Timeout Duration Settings

Improvements

  • General: The Api version of the Microservices is now displayed in the pathfinder status monitor. The overview can be found in the "About LeanIX" section.

v4.0.84 (2018-06-22)

Bugfixes

  • Reporting: Empty results based on filtering is now rendered properly in the lifecycle- and age report. In addition to that it no longer throws an error.
  • Integration: The Signavio configurations can now be saved again without the need to provide tenantIds.
  • Security: We fixed a security gap where html code could be injected through the URL.
  • Inventory: The "Last Update" table in the Fact Sheet had some cells with a cell overflow, resulting in overlapping long lines of text. This is fixed now. Long texts are shown wrapped.
  • Integration: The Pivio client now supports blacklisting and whitelisting for all build environments (maven, sbt, etc.)

v4.0.81 (2018-06-19)

Bugfixes

  • Todos: Under certain circumstances Todos for open comments were not closed automatically upon deletion of the original comment. This is now fixed and any lingering Todos that have been orphaned when their comments have been deleted will be removed.
  • Todos: The "Dismiss All"-Button works now as expected.
  • Todos: Up until now only the first 100 Todos were shown to users. Now our UI shows all the Todos.
  • Integrations: Top Down Sync in the Signavio Integration is now even more robust.
  • Reporting: Roadmap reports now correctly restore the lifecycle ranges from bookmarks.
  • Reporting: We restored the functionality to develop custom reports locally without the need for API-keys.

v4.0.79 (2018-06-08)

Bugfixes

  • Reporting: Expand interfaces in visualizer is now possible after doing a drill down on Application children
  • Reporting: Visualizer / Data Flow: Expand/collapse boxes now working in Firefox

v4.0.77 (2018-06-05)

  • Survey: Survey results keep their status once they rejoin a poll run after being removed

v4.0.76 (2018-06-03)

Bugfixes

  • Inventory: When using advanced filters and the filter yields no fact sheets, the overall search requests did not consider the advanced filter.
  • Reporting: When switching to the table view of a report, the table now contains all filters of the report, esp. also of other axis.

v4.0.75 (2018-05-29)

Bugfixes

  • Home: Fixed that survey related TODOs were reopened under certain conditions
  • Inventory: Calendar in lifecycle filter not visible
  • Reporting: Upload of custom reports with the same version is now prevented

v4.0.71 (2018-05-24)

Features

Bugfixes

  • Inventory: Scrolling in Inventory after clicking on a Dashboard chart no longer causes an error
  • Inventory: Obsolescence Score in the table view is shown as a percentage
  • Visualizer: "Select by filter" prefilters the result set only to Fact Sheets in the drawing
  • Inventory: Filtering with Full-Text Search or concrete Fact Sheets now works also when used in Advanced filter.

v4.0.70 (2018-05-18)

Bugfixes

  • Fact Sheet: When cloning a Fact Sheet the new name is properly shown in the audit trail.
  • Fact Sheet: Lines in the audit trail describing changes in Fact Sheet relations now contain the current display names of affected Fact Sheets instead of their names at the time of the corresponding events.
  • Fact Sheet: Translated description of audit trail entries (English and German) was added for some entry types that were missing (relation switched, relation validity updated, constraining relations changed).
  • Inventory: Fix “My Fact Sheet” bookmark in Table View
  • Home: Fix adding new view sections for customizing dashboard in IE

v4.0.69 (2018-05-17)

  • Surveys: Use correct e-mail notification text for new survey runs
  • Surveys: Avoid accidental insertion of HTML tags into survey questions

Features

  • Pivio: Support proxy settings via cli (command-line-interface) arguments in the Pivio-integration

v4.0.60 (2018-05-11)

Bugfixes

  • Fact Sheet: Fixed broken layout of Fact Sheet after editing the lifecycle in Firefox
  • Surveys: Custom e-mail notification text is now preserved when survey settings are changed

v4.0.59 (2018-05-09)

Bugfixes

  • Surveys: Prevent error when showing the deep link survey page, when the survey was previously answered by a user who no longer participates in a poll run (removed subscription).

v4.0.55 (2018-05-02)

Bugfixes

  • Inventory: Within a Fact Sheet, tags are now shown again at every relation to another Fact Sheet.

v4.0.54 (2018-04-30)

Features

  • Visualizer: When opening the Visualizer, you can now jump into a saved report. Now a saved report always opens read-only, click on “Edit” (top right) to start your work. Temporary changes to your diagram are saved in the background to prevent loss of your work, e.g. when closing the browser or navigating in LeanIX.
  • Invite: It is now possible to turn off the 'Invite' functionality, esp. in case you are using Single-Sign-On (SSO) or you provision your users via our API. Please ask our Customer Success team for more information.

Bugfixes

  • Surveys: The run of a survey can be configured to check for changes, e.g. new Fact Sheets which are included by a filter. A recurring job once a day usually checks for these changes. This job was not working well for some workspaces. E-Mail notifications are sent out again and Todos on the Dashboard are being created.
  • Surveys: Users are informed about required answers to surveys using a Todo on the LeanIX Home screen. Too many Todos were created for surveys, also in some cases for not yet started surveys. The invalid Todo's have been removed, only valid Todo's are now created.
  • Inventory: The location filter in the filter facets now includes the full location hierarchy, i.e. selecting 'Germany' also reveals results like 'Germany / Berlin' and 'Germany / Munich'.
  • Notifications: The correct language is now selected for notification E-Mails. The logic is: Take the Language setting in the following order where the first one set has precedence over later settings: 1. User settings, 2. Workspace settings, 3. Contract settings, 4. Account settings, 5. Default.
  • Inventory: When importing new subscriptions for non-existing users via the Excel-Import, this could cause an error. Now you can add multiple new users in a single line via the Excel-Import.
  • Inventory: The list view for the inventory does not throw an error anymore while scrolling.
  • Inventory: Only show filters which are enabled in the Fact Sheet, i.e. if a relation is not visible in the Fact Sheet it cannot be filtered.
  • Inventory: Filtering by Quality Seal state in table view was not always returning the expected result.
  • General: In case an error is shown, e.g. due to network issues, only one red error box is displayed instead of many errors.
