Adding the Request Widget to Any App

Adding the Request Widget to Any App

Serena Release Control 6.0 introduces us to request providers and request collections. These features give much more flexibility in being able to relate requests, especially 3rd party requests, to SBM items. You are able to relate requests from multiple sources - SBM requests, Dimensions Requests, ServiceNow tickets, and JIRA issues - and view this list of items in one place.

To view the related requests, you must add the Request Collection widget to your application. By default, only the Release Package application has the Request Collection widget, but you can easily add the widget to other of your SBM applications, such as Release Trains or Application Releases. The only requirement is that you have Release Control 6.0 installed.

Cherrypicking (Part 1): Comparing Cherrypicking with Regular Request Merge

Have you ever been in a situation where a fix applied to one stream was urgently required in another?

This often happens when a bug fixed in a future release is escalated and needs to be included in a patch release. Each patch typically has its own stream so you need to merge the fix from the feature or mainline stream to the patch. To restrict the merged code to the exact bug-fix you need to cherrypick the changes carefully.

Dimensions CM 14.1.x and earlier supports regular request merge but not cherrypicking.


Let’s see the difference in a simple example with two streams...
