    Downloading the Sprint 3 Kit

    We are piloting a new way to provide CA Performance Management Sprint Kits to those of you in the IM Pre-Release Community who are interested in downloading kits and testing them in a development environment. Some of you may already be aware of CA’s validation platform validate.ca.com. The CA Performance Management 2.8 Sprint 3 Kit is available via the CA Performance Management 2.8 project on validate.ca.com.

     

    To join the CA Performance Management 2.8 project on validate.ca.com and get access to the project and the Sprint 3 Kit, use the following link. If you are already a member of validate.ca.com, this link will work for you too. NOTE: If you joined the CA Performance Management 2.8 project on validate.ca.com previously (e.g. to download the Sprint 2 kit), skip Step 1 (you do not need to join the project again). Start with Step 2: "Accessing the CA Performance Management 2.8 Project After Initial Registration".

     

    Just like with sprint kits posted on Cloud Commons or the Marketplace in the past, by joining the IM Pre-Release Community you have signed the CA Pre-Release agreement and are bound by that agreement. Kits are provided for your use only, and in non-production environments only. When joining the CA Performance Management 2.8 project on validate.ca.com here is what you can expect:

    • When asked for a username and password, use the same username and password as you use to access Customer Support Online.
    • If you are not already a member of the validate.ca.com community, you will be asked to complete the user registration process. The form asks for some information about your location. The only required element is to specify the country in which you are located.
    • You will be asked to electronically sign the Pre-Release Testing Agreement by entering your e-mail address as listed in the section just above the field where you digitally sign.
    • You will be asked to fill out a Project Registration Survey. Our Product Management team will be thankful for information about your company, role, and interest in Sprint Kits.
