Issuetrak Release Notes

Issuetrak 11.1 Release Notes
release date: 10.23.2018

Our October release, Issuetrak 11.1, adds Admin Auditing functionality.  This keeps an audit log of various administrative settings, allowing changes to these settings to be tracked in great detail.  

Enhancements and fixes to existing functionality have been added to this release and are detailed below.

What's New

Admin Auditing gives you the ability to see changes made to critical Administrative settings within Issuetrak.  Audit records are kept from the moment Admin Auditing is enabled, can be searched and exported as a spreadsheet, and cannot be deleted from the Issuetrak web interface. The audit log tracks:  

  • What setting was changed
  • Approximately where the setting can be found
  • Who changed the setting
  • What the old value was
  • What the new value is
  • When it happened

But we haven't stopped with Admin Auditing!  We've expanded and improved upon several existing features, too.  

Pre-Submit Screen

Pre-Submit screen has been added to the options available on the Features page.  If you enable this, you can decide whether to include the Quick Pick selection field or the Issue Type selection field (or both!) on a Pre-Submit screen that will determine which Custom Screen will be displayed to end users.  

Special Function Search

The Special Functions List All page can now be sorted and searched for specific values.  

Configurable Validity Period for Password Reset Emails

It is now possible for an Issuetrak administrator to set the number of hours that a password reset email will be viable.  

What's Fixed

Active Directory

▪ Department names containing an ampersand or apostrophe were not getting mapped during the AD import process or updated appropriately upon user login.  

API

▪ The API could not be used to create issues to next action users with grandfathered Can Be Assigned Next Action permission.  

▪ The Inactive property has been removed from the Locations table because Locations cannot be inactivated.  If the API is used to retrieve the Locations DTO, the value for "IsActive" will now always be returned as True. 

 Custom Screens

▪ Issues could be submitted without a Project being selected, even if the custom screen for the issue type was set to require a Project to be selected.  

 Incoming Email

▪ Errors were encountered when the Incoming Email service attempted to process certain messages coming from an Office 365 mailbox.  

 Issue Notes

▪ End users were being logged out when they tried to add a note to an issue that they had access to as a result of being on the issue's email distribution.

 Locations

▪ Location Names and Location IDs that start with the same letters would improperly cause an Auto Complete pop-up window to appear when searching for Locations.

 Quick Picks

▪ The Unassigned Issues count would be reported incorrectly when issues were submitted via Quick Picks that assign the issue to the submitter.  

 Reports

▪ Queries that had filters set to use specific dates with a less-than-or-equal-to value were including the day after the date value provided in the search results.   

 Special Functions Table

▪ Records containing null values would not be displayed if a search was made on the Special Functions Table.

 UI

▪ Multiple columns would get stuck displaying "Loading" in the Summary tab of the My Issues screen when attempting to sort by column.  

 UserID Maintenance

▪ Customers that were on a Productivity License key and also at their user license limit were unable to perform a UserID change due to an error indicating that there are no user licenses available.

 Visibility Controls

▪ Agents without administrative permissions that were also not in an internal organization were unable to view the *Organization Details* page.
