What's New in Serena Dimensions CM 12.2.2

IDE Baseline Creation

You can now create baselines from the Eclipse and Visual Studio integrations. You can create the following types of baseline from any project or stream in the repositories you are connected to:

Product-Specific IDE Upload Rules

It is now possible to define product-specific upload rules for an IDE. You can create default upload rules for an IDE for a specific product based on a selected product’s upload rules.

Enhanced performance for Tip and Revised Baseline Creation

Performance has been enhanced for the creation of tip and revised baselines involving large numbers of items.

Common Tomcat Installation

The installer now detects whether the common tomcat is already installed and re-use it instead of installing another one. For example, if Dimensions RM or Development Manager is already installed, then the installer for Dimensions CM is able to determine this and use the same instance of Serena Common Tomcat for Dimensions CM.

SSO login is now enabled for Dimensions CM Build Administration. This enables users to view build logs from Serena Development Manager.
