⚙️ Keeping the pace: performance, UX and stability improvements !

Ganister Release Factory

Continuing the enhancements of v2

We keep building and improving the v2 which, again, has been a essential upgrade for Ganister. With more testing, and better standardized exchanges between the client and the server we can keep a great pace of improvements, small fixes and better UX.

UX for ECO

UX improvements are mainly triggered by our customers. As an example, the impact matrix in the ECO is something for which the functional behavior works great. Processing ECOs works well but the UX was not at the same level. The lines could move at every change and you could be lost in the impact matrix if you had too much data to track. Now that we keep selected lines through changes, we offer easy filters and default sorting, The change is much easier to process.

UX for history tracking

We know the history timeline is not great. We improved it to get better reading of what happened on a node and we will keep improving this very important traceability reading experience. The data has always been saved correctly, we are improving the display.

API keys

We had feedbacks from developers who did not like that if you were to connect a system to Ganister PLM using our API, the other system would have to login with a distinct API call instead of having a direct API secret key. We agreed and we built the feature. You can create dedicated users for which you get a secret API key that can be sent for any operation you allowed to this specific user.

Upgrade

You can upgrade you own instances running npm run upgrade. We raised the node creation limit for freeloaders to 50k nodes !
