DCM R4.2 is a minor release focusing on optimizing audits. Changes have been made to ensure that bigger audit runs do not interfere with the rest of the platform.
This release also includes a lot of small changes to existing reports and a new version of the "DCM Dashboard", now called "DCM Audit Dashboard". Multiple new reports also included. List of all DCM reports can be found here.
Release date: 16.4.2020
No new major functionality added in this release.
Multiple changes to optimize audit runner. Different methods to run scheduled audits vs. on-demand audits for example.
Now DCM should manage larger data sets to be audited even if it might take more time to run the audit in certain cases.
|Audit||On-demand audit with too many root records||Now the audit won't start and user remains on the modal window if number of filtered root records exceeds the maximum number of root records for on-demand audits.|
|Audit||Field condition reference to unique audit messages||Now the "Field condition" can be used as a grouping factor for unique audit messages. This will improve the reporting on attribute level deviations.|
|Audit||Open audit instance into audit results view||Open audit instances into audit results view from the list and form views.|
|Audit||More references to UAM||Unique audit messages now directly refer to the latest audit instance and audited record. This will enable more options for reporting.|
|Audit||Expired Unique Audit Messages||Unique Audit Messages will expire automatically after a given number of days (31 by default). This means that if a UAM record has not been updated within the last 31 days, a scheduled job will automatically update UAM to "Expired" status. This status indicates that the issue may have been fixed already or similar audits are not running anymore.|
|Blueprint Designer||Using templates||Do not show templates for inactive domains when creating new blueprints.|
|Reports and Dashboards||Lots of small changes and new reports|
Lots of small updates to reports to better utilize data domain and tier information. Multiple new reports also included in the app.
List of all currently available reports can be found here.
|Reports and Dashboards||New database view to connect UAMs to root records||New database view that joins unique audit messages with configuration items via the audited record / root record Document ID field.|
|Reports and Dashboards||"DCM Dashboard" replaced with "DCM Audit Dashboard"||Old "DCM Dashboard" has deactivated and it should not be used anymore. New "DCM Audit Dashboard" available via the navigation menu under the DCM application.|
|Application||Updated Guided setup||Some minor issues fixed and more information added to Guided setup including the use of content packs available from the ServiceNow Store.|
|Audit||UAM links to the same audit instance multiple times||Timing related issue with bigger audits where the same unique audit message got related to the same audit instance multiple times.|
|Audit||UAMs without weight value||With bigger audits, sometimes unique audit messages did not have a weight value.|
|Audit||UAM not being deleted||UAM was not being deleted when all related audit messages were deleted.|
|Blueprint Designer||Invalid ACLs for updating blueprint versions||Users with bp_user role could not modify their own blueprint versions.|
|Blueprint Designer||Copy all blueprint attributes to new||When using templates or taking copies of blueprint versions, not all attributes were copied to new versions.|
|Data Content Planner||Audit results opened to DCP opens an empty window||Loading audit results into DCP creates default blank content set.|
|Data Content Planner||Error when trying to populate data content set||TypeError: Cannot read property "sys_domain" from null|
|Application||Removed New buttons||Removed multiple New buttons from DCM tables that should be managed within the DCM specific UI, not list views.|
