We are pleased to announce the release of Blue Cedar Platform 2020-11-10, which is a bug fix release. 

Highlights

  • Workflow enhancements deliver richer information and greater control over deployments
  • Improved artifact summary information provides easy access to all workflow run files 

What's new

The Blue Cedar Platform is enhanced to include more helpful workflow on-screen tips, visual indicators for easy understanding of the workflow progress, notification messages, and more details on the workflow run artifacts.

Enhanced workflows

Enhancements in the workflow UI and the workflow builder provide clearer visual indicators including improved iconography and tool tips; more controls in the notification center such as the ability to cancel app uploads and downloads; and richer real-time information about workflow runs, such as the duration time of a step or which user must complete an action. 

Improved artifacts summary

All artifacts generated by a workflow run are viewable from a single page with more details. For more efficient workflow execution, the artifacts summary page indicates which stage and step the file is generated, information about the app signing status, and options to download various app binaries.
