Dojo App Deprecation From Custom Pages & Dashboards

  • 1.  Dojo App Deprecation From Custom Pages & Dashboards

    Posted 07-19-2018 03:01 PM

    In order to improve performance for all Agile Central users and make room for more new functionality, we are going to be deprecating all dojo apps from our app catalog. This is part of our larger effort to retire WSAPI 1.x and the adhoc endpoint, which has been deprecated for several years and is causing stability and performance issues to our servers. 

     

    For our next round of deprecations, we are going to be removing the following apps. All users that are currently using these apps will see a notice at the top of the app and custom pages that they are on as well as a notice in the app catalog and will be given several weeks to remove these apps. 

     

    Note: These apps will be removed from the app catalog, custom pages and dashboards on the deprecation date listed.

    Is there a way for us to see which of these apps are currently in use in our subscription?  We'd like to smooth the way for those users by creating alternatives in advance and communicating with our user base.

    This is a very short timeframe to analyze and develop replacements for a huge number of apps. Any chance the timeline can be extended?

     

    Also,  the User Lookup "replacement" guidance is to use the administration page.  But the User Lookup page lets ordinary, non-admin users look people up.  The administration page only works for admins. This is a vital app for all of our users

    User Lookup *September 17, 2018Use the Users administration page.

     

    Is there going to be a standard, out of the box user lookup replacement app?

    CCallas thanks for the note! You should be able to use Custom List as well for this and set the Type to User, please give it a try and let us know if this works for you!

    grama23 Thanks for the reply, but the custom list doesn't really do what we need.  The User Lookup app has a search box where you can filter the users based on a substring, an alphabetical filter (show all the "A" names, for example), and does not break up the results into separate pages so it's much faster and easier to find a person.

    We'd rather not replace the Enhanced Velocity Chart with the Velocity Chart, we'd like to be able to use the Enhanced Velocity Chart that is using the updated SDK with a few slight modifications -
