What's new in 14503?

(Released on: 13 October 2023)

Enhancements:

  • SDPMSP-8847 : Release Management in ServiceDesk Plus MSP

    ServiceDesk Plus MSP now supports Release Management in the IT help desk. Release management allows you to plan, build, test, and deploy releases to the production environment. A release can be defined as the process of delivering a set of authorized changes to IT services in a controlled environment. You can use release management to deploy hardware, software, documentation, processes, guidelines, policies, and other components to service operations. Throughout its life cycle, the release process is closely associated with the change management process.

    • ServiceDesk Plus MSP supports the following 9 stages that are essential to any release process :
      • Submission
      • Planning
      • Development
      • Testing
      • UAT
      • Deployment
      • Training
      • Review
      • Closure
    • Each stage in the release management contains statuses that indicate the progress of a release within the stage. Besides statuses, each stage has its planned schedule, roles, approvals, tasks and in some cases, downtime.
    • You can create a release request easily by using pre-configured templates, associate workflows with release requests to define the direction of the flow of the release process. Using workflows, you can include statuses in each stage, set up approvals, allocate stage-wise permissions to users, and configure notifications.To learn more about release management, Click here.
