New Features

  • SDF-65167: Request List View Enhancements: Mark request filters as favorite, resize request columns, and view tasks and requests in a single page.

  • SDF-65212: Option to merge service requests.
  • SDF-65393: Email reply gets auto merged as conversation based on email header (in-reply-to header). This feature is enabled by default .It can be disabled through the Globalconfig Table in the database. [Parameter=AppendOnRequestReferences].
  • SDF-63883: Live Chat for Users: Allow requesters to have a quick chat with technicians easily.
  • SDF-65278: Advanced analytics integration for ServiceDesk Plus now offers reports and dashboards on change management module. In this update you will get-

  • SDF-65039: Option to configure the base delimiter. Admin >> Mail Server settings >> Delimiter.
  • Note: By default, the base delimiter is ## and delimiter for each module is Request-RE, Change-CH, Problem-PB, Project-PJ, Solution-SO, Task-TA, PurchaseOrder-PO, PurchaseRequest-PR, and Contract-CO.
  • SDF-67252 : Scan status with troubleshooting steps will be displayed in details page of SNMP devices too.

Behaviour change

  • Request ID search has been removed. Instead, the global search will have the "request id" filter enabled by default. Switch to "default search" filter to perform global search within the application.
  • When Business Rules are applied to move a request to Closed / Resolved / Completed status, the action will be successful only if the Request satisfies the Request closing rules.
  • Previously,$EntityID was used in Notification template. This has been changed to ##ModuleDelimiter-$EntityID##. For each module, replace their respective delimiters. For example, $RequestID should be replaced with ##RE-$RequestID##. The modified delimiter will be applied to the e-mail Notification template.
  • SDSiteAdmin without "ModifyingDueTime" permission will not be able to edit the 'created time' in global edit.
