This new release of HCL RTist contains several interesting improvements in many different areas. Let's take a quick look at some of them.
Not only is Design Room ONE developed in short sprints, but the deliveries actually get published every 4th week. For our customers such agility provides very quick resolution of their problems. In sprint 2019.15 two customer issues were fixed: problems with diagrams stored in separate fragment files and OSLC links between requirements and model elements in context of global configurations are now gone. Please see Release Notes document for detailed information. Besides that this sprint was also focused on improving presentation of C++ generation properties, read further or check out the new video.
An update of Live! (2019.15) is now available. This is a major release and delivers many new features.
Live! Home and Multiple Rooms
Live! now supports hosting multiple Rooms within the same server. With this you can organize your designs into different Rooms to support multiple Teams or even allow same Team to have multiple Rooms. Rooms are managed and accessed via Live! Home Server. When a user logs into Live! Home Server he will be presented with a tiled view of all Rooms he has access to, and from there he can navigate to any of those Rooms:
Users and Groups
Live! now supports grouping users into groups for controlling access to Rooms. User and Groups can be managed by Home Admins using Live! Home:
A Room can be assigned three Groups, which control the level of access each Group member has to that Room. These three levels are Room Administrator, Normal User and Read-Only User:
Active Directory Integration
You can use your existing Active Directory to authenticate users when they log in to live. A Home Admin can configure the Active Directory connection from the Home Settings page:
You can use choose to use Active Directory groups while assign them to Rooms. Additionally, you can also use local Groups.
In the Settings page you can also assign a Group, whose members will Home Admin rights (apart from the built-in “admin” user). Here you can select a local group or an Active Directory group:
Improved Link Anchoring
Links now allow you to finely control where they connect to their end shapes. Now when you create a link, it will by default, connect to the center of each end shape. After creation, you can select the Link, this will show an anchor point (solid circle) on each end shape, and you can now drag the anchor the around to control the direction and position where the link connects to the shape:
This allows you easily create specific routes by moving the anchors towards different sides:
This also allows you to manage and position multiple links between two shapes:
Upload Zip files during Import
You can now upload existing Zip file during Import to bring in content from them. This is useful, for example, when you are moving content across Rooms or Servers.
