Release Notes 22.2

October 2022 - Version 22.2 - New Features, Enhancements, Improvements and Changelogs

Date of release: 9 October 2022 Article last updated: 15 May 2023

New Features

1. Teams/Slack Notifications

Mail Settings module in the Admin section is relabeled as Notifications. Through this module, you can choose to send notifications about specific events triggered in ARM to specific groups or channels within your organization through Teams or Slack. For whichever messaging app you use, you can configure a webhook connection for each of the groups or channels, and then integrate them with ARM. You can customize and select which group(s) to notify when events like build failure, build success, deployment failure, merge reports, etc. are triggered.

2. Salesforce Scanner plugin

In addition to the existing static code analysis tools, ARM now provides the ability to choose the Salesforce Scanner CLI plugin.

Most static code analysis tools specialize in one language or a set of languages. Many applications (including typical Salesforce packages), however, contain an assortment of components created using different languages. A single static analyzer is insufficient to address all aspects of such applications, and managing multiple static analyzer tools could prove unfeasible.

This is where the Salesforce CLI Scanner plugin shines. This plugin aggregates the results of static analyzers that are most relevant to Salesforce developers while providing a unified experience.

With the Salesforce CLI Scanner plugin, you can look forward to a:

  • Single installation process

  • A single set of commands to interact with multiple rule engines

  • A unified set of rules that are checked by their respective rule engines

  • Unified rule violation report that includes all issues identified by the engines.

3. AutoRABIT for nCino

Weโ€™ve added the ability to view and review datasets corresponding to each version of the nCino feature template before using it for deployment. Prior to this release, the capability was available only for the latest version of the template.


Enhancements

1. ApexPMD Upgrade to 6.49 version

With this release, PMD has been upgraded to version 6.49. If you have not uploaded a rules file, ARM will use the default Apex PMD rules file. However, you can add new rules to the default ruleset.

2. Auto-approve on validation success

We have moved one step closer to automating the flow by adding an option to choose if an EZ-Commit or an EZ-Merge should be approved automatically if the SCA validation is successful. Combined with the existing option to auto-commit on approval, this leads to a true CI/CD experience.

3. HashiCorp Vault Integration

While adding HashiCorp credentials to ARM, you can now choose the AWS Authentication method so that the Vault Token will be generated automatically whenever the existing token expires. Now the user will not have to update the token manually from the application when it expires.

4. SFDX CLI Upgrade

The SFDX CLI has been upgraded to the latest stable 7.169 version.

Key characteristics to look for:

  • Support for the quick deploy functionality for SFDX jobs.

  • Use CLI commands to generate the package manifest and rollbacks.

5. Salesforce Winter (API 56.0) Support

To keep our product up to date with the most recent Salesforce updates, AutoRABIT supports the most recent API 56.0 version in this release. The most recent API version is intended for customizing the metadata model and developing tools to manage it.

6. Merge to multiple branches

With this release, you can choose to merge from one source branch to multiple destination branches upon successful deployment.

7. OAuth for Jira

In addition to the Standard access type, users can now set up SSO as authentication for Jira using the OAuth access type while registering an ALM. You can also switch between Standard and OAuth access types for already registered ALMs.

Improvements

  • Users with Admin access can now turn off the Jira comments and notifications created by AR. This ensures a cleaner workspace. These comments and notifications are very development centric, so the end users who use Jira cannot make sense of our technical comments from AR, and this may create confusion for them.
