Test Management Improvements

Test Plan Organization Updates

Previously, all test plans were organized into a single flat list for a project. With the introduction of the Test Plans tree and folders, you now have a flexible and scalable method for test plan organization and navigation. 






Note: If archived test plans existed in a project prior to Jama Connect 9.8, the system performs a one-time move to relocate all archived plans into a user-managed folder called "Archived test plans." You can remove or keep this folder. All subsequently archived test plans remain in their original location. For example, the system doesn't automatically relocate newly archived test plans. 


Continued Performance Optimization

A large batch update for "Sync Test Runs to Test Cases" now finishes in substantially less time. 


This release also resolves performance challenges when using the /testruns API endpoint. 



End of Life for Trace Matrix

As announced in the Jama Connect 8.76 release notes, the 12-month transition period has ended, so Trace Matrix is no longer available in Jama Connect. This decision was guided by the superior capabilities and significantly higher usage (over 20x) of Trace View, as well as the objective to simplify the available options for traceability analysis in Jama Connect.  

Most users aren't impacted by this change because Trace Matrix was disabled by default in the Jama Connect 8.78 release and only an organization admin could re-enable it. 

Note: Trace View and Coverage Explorer are not impacted by this change.
