While using Teamstudio Build Manager, have you ever thought, “I really wish there was an action to do _________?” An underutilized feature that’s contained within Build Manager is the ability for anyone to create a custom promotion step. Similar to the other prebuilt promotion steps, anyone with IBM Domino Designer and knowledge of promotions can create a custom promotion step.
This edition’s major enhancements include the ability to export Adviser data to CSV, the ability to tag multiple databases at once, enhanced search term details in Adviser’s Complexity Module along with the option to disable this Module, and improved performance of Adviser’s Effective Access reporting along with the option to disable this feature.
This edition replaces the code that runs on the workstation with a standalone executable rather than a Notes database. This simplifies the workstation installation, improves robustness and scalability, and also allows us to support features such as SSL connections to the server that were impossible while running inside Notes.
We’re excited to announce that Brian Arnold is the newest member of our team! Brian brings vast IBM Notes and Domino development experience and technical education to this role. Brian’s first foray in IBM Notes was in 1994. He built a Support Desk system in Notes V3.36 for the largest photofinisher in Canada that interfaced with their AS/400 mainframe system.
Having the ability to determine what the current Effective Access is across an IBM Notes and Domino application base is critical for both day-to-day IT operations and alignment with many auditory requirements and frameworks. Whatever your project or need, you’ll likely find that there are not any great features within Domino to enable you to consolidate, interpret, and act upon Effective Access data out-of-the-box without significant effort and resource expenditure.
Through eight or nine major releases of IBM Notes and Domino and over a period of 25 years, many, many new features have been added to the platform. In particular, the application development environment has changed beyond recognition from the early days of formula language only. Despite all of those new features being added, the platform has managed to maintain what’s called backwards compatibility. Backwards compatibility means you could take any application that was written for Notes any time from 1991 to the present day, and run it, unchanged, on the latest version of Notes.
