Note that this maintenance release contains simplifications to the UI (mainly for the onboarding process) and these will continue in future releases of Console. Documentation has therefore not been updated - this will be done when changes are complete.

Feature Improvements

UI - Simplification of create application and analysis steps labelsThe labels for the interactive list of action steps that are displayed in a slide out panel on the right hand side of the UI have been simplified to reduce complexity. Previously, internal/complex names were used for these steps. See
UI - Simplification of UI for adding a new version or version n+1 (rescan)The UI for adding a new version or a version n+1 (rescan) has been simplified to remove complexity. There is no impact to the actual functioning of Console, however, some options, steps and labels have been merged, renamed or moved. See

WEBI-11719Fixes an issue where source code delivery exclusions were incorrectly applied to the entire source code delivery path when using a "Source Folder Location" or to the ZIP file itself, causing deliveries to fail when the path or ZIP file name contained a match for the default exclusion patterns (for example a path or ZIP containing the word "test" or "temp").

Feature Improvements

UI - Start-up wizard - Named Application licenseIt is now possible to choose the license key strategy you would like to use with AIP Console: based on Contributing Developers or based on Named Applications. When a license key strategy has been chosen it is not possible to change it. See for more information.
UI - Snapshot Indicators - Clickable linksA clickable hyperlink has been added to some snapshot indicators - when clicked, the link directs users to other parts of the AIP Console UI to aid understanding of the indicator. See
UI - Snapshot Indicators - Deactivated indicatorsThe following Snapshot Indicators are now deactivated by default in AIP Console because they can sometimes impact performance: Programs/Classes in Transactions, Unexpected Objects Count, LoC per FP Variation. These indicators can be activated if required via the Admin Center, see:
UI - Transactions/Function Points - Object Full Name displayA column called "Object Full Name" (displaying the object's full name) has been added in all panels in the Transactions and Function Points panels in the Application Management section - see the relevant sub pages in In addition, when exporting details to CSV file, the Object Full Name information is now also included.
UI - Snapshot IndicatorsThe UI for the Snapshot Indicators panel in the Application Overview page has undergone some minor UI improvements to bring the panel into line with styling used elsewhere in AIP Console. See
