2020

Version 2020.24 [December 3, 2020]

Note:  Version 2020.24 includes two new features: Document Comparison and Data Dictionary Search. Snapshots taken with a remote agent version prior to 2020.24 did not gather the required metadata to support these features. Therefore, only snapshots taken with a remote agent version 2020.24 or higher will be capable of leveraging these new features.

Data Dictionary Search will automatically work for new solutions added after upgrading to 2020.24. Existing solutions require a manual process to convert them. Follow these steps:

  1. Go to to Data Dictionary Categories.
  2. Create a new Category (this can be deleted later).
  3. Ensure the new Category applies to All Solutions, Solution Items, and Global Technology Type.
  4. In the Applicable Items drop down, select every item, then save the new Category.
  5. Request a new snapshot for the solution.
  6. Once the snapshot completes, you can delete the Category that was created for this process.
