We are excited to share some upcoming improvements to the app catalog! For anyone interested in trying out the new functionality currently in limited beta (will only be toggled on for customers that request it), here's some information to help you get started. Please check out the FAQ section at the end of this post for more information.
So far, we've made some great changes to the app catalog:
Here's what else you should know:
The new Community section in the app catalog is for apps that were created by various folks, including CA’s Technical Services and developers who are passionate about helping Teams succeed. They have been carefully selected and reviewed by our engineering team. While these apps will now be much easier for customers to add to their custom pages, we will provided limited support for them and they are subject to beta terms:
CA makes each of these applications available to you subject to the terms for Beta Products set forth in the SaaS Listing for CA Agile Central and to any additional terms included with such applications. By accessing or using the applications, you agree that these terms for Beta Products govern your access to and use of the applications in conjunction with CA Agile Central.
If you run into issues with these apps, you are encouraged to open an issue in GitHub (links to GitHub repos are provided with each community app in the app catalog) or to correct the issue yourself and create a pull request for it. While we will do our best to keep apps up to date, updates in the GitHub repos will not be automatically or immediately reflected in the app catalog and we will not guarantee pulling in these updates. You can also create a custom HTML app on your custom page or in your subscription app catalog using the source code from GitHub to make modifications to suit your needs. CA Support will only be able to assist customers with critical issues with these apps, such as a failure to load, data loss, etc.
Customers may have requests for apps that they would like to see in the Community App Catalog. We will review each request for technical feasibility and value of including it in the catalog, and we would like to encourage customers to submit requests through the feedback button on the app catalog.
To get the new app catalog, you can reply directly to this community post and someone will reach out to you.
Once the new app catalog is turned on for your subscription, you will need to enable the Community App Catalog to see the added community apps. Subscription administrators can turn on the Community App Catalog by going to Setup -> Subscription, then selecting the "Allow community app catalog apps" options near the top.
We do have a few more changes planned for the app catalog that should be available in the next few weeks. No actions are needed on your side to get these updates:
We would love to hear about the things you like and would like to see changed with the new app catalog. Please provide feedback through the feedback button at the top of the app catalog.
These are the dojo apps that will be moving from the core app catalog to the community section a few weeks after the app catalog changes are released to everyone.
Nice. I'm looking forward to the change.
So basically, this is awesome. And what a selling feature! Excited to see Agile Central's product team expanding the product's App Catalog vision. More investment in this area, please. What subscription customer wouldn't want an existing Agile Central community app factory containing Agile Central SDK and API dev skills!? Don't have the skills internally? No problem. Leverage the skilled community app factory! I like how the Catalog's new design aligns to a standard custom app governance process from intake to delivery. That's exactly what this product needs: standard governance processes from supplier to customer and back. AC's product team is on the money with this one.
