New Machine Learning Workflow for Prioritizing Static Analysis Findings

The Recommend Assignees workflow is designed to analyze violations from previous builds to recommend developers who should fix violations reported in the currently analyzed build. See Using the Machine Learning Feature - Recommending Assignees.

New and Enhanced External Systems Integrations

New Integration with Azure DevOps

Parasoft DTP now integrates with Azure DevOps to facilitate bi-directional traceability between Azure DevOps items and Parasoft automated tests and static analysis results. See Integrating with Azure DevOps.

Other Enhancements

We've added support for changed granularity of Parasoft SOAtest test results that are sent to external systems integrated with Parasoft DTP. Each SOAtest .tst file can be represented by one test when sent to an external system from Parasoft DTP.

Enhanced User Administration

We've extended the system administration capabilities of DTP. The Active Users feature allows DTP administrators to monitor which users are currently using DTP and be notified when the user limit has been reached. In addition, the feature introduced license reservation, where a user who already has a license reservation in License Server will be automatically activated in DTP. See Active Users.

Optimized Dashboard Drop-downs

We've optimized the Filter and Project drop-down menus to handle an extensive list of projects and filters.

Enhanced Linux Start-up and Shutdown Scripts

The DTP server, Data Collector, and DTP Enterprise Pack start-up and shutdown scripts for Linux have been enhanced for use in automated workflows. See Using the Automation Scripts.

Connecting Enterprise Pack to an External MongoDB

You can now connect Enterprise Pack to an external version of MongoDB. This allows you to connect to a newer version of MongoDB than the version shipped with Enterprise Pack – up to MongoDB 4.4. See Connecting Enterprise Pack to a Remote Database.

Important Changes

  • DTP now ships with JRE 8u302b08.  Note that in certain environments, such as Windows, older versions of MySQL java connectors may not work.  In such cases, upgrade to a newer version of the MySQL java connector.
  • Support for Oracle database 11g has been deprecated and will be removed in future versions of DTP.
  • Support for IE11 has been deprecated and will be removed in future versions of DTP.
  • SOAtest 2021.2 introduced a new XML report format (see the Release Notes for SOAtest 2021.2 for details). As a result, a test reported in the XML report by SOAtest 2021.2 will be stored in DTP with a different test ID than the test was reported by previous versions of SOAtest. This affects Test History data in the Test Explorer and the Tests-Changed widget.
  •  The admin user will be prompted to read and agree to the terms of EULA when the DTP web interface is opened for the first time. The Parasoft EULA is available at https://www.parasoft.com/license.

Additional Updates
