New Features
The new features listed here were added with this release.
User Experience scores added to On-Demand Application Dependency Mappings (ODADM). The User Experience Score is the third KPI added, and the colors connecting the lines of the ODADM are based solely on the score. You can click on the connecting lines between the nodes to see the KPI. When clicked, the ODADM popup is refractored due to additional data being present. Anywhere the User Experience Score is shown in the ODADM, you can click to produce the popup depicting the score, the four dimensions, and the deduction reasons.
Smoother Apex Report Renderings enhances widget rendering when multiple widgets are rendering at the same time. The new rendering makes the user experience much nicer.
Display the Size of the Resultant Trace File in Apex Job Viewer. The Apex Job viewer is updated to add the file size to the metadata received for relevant jobs in hover details, TraceX PCAPs for example, and displayed in units of KB, MB, and TB.
