Release 10.2.1
Link Date Released Status

List of fixes

ID APAR Description
TP-77049
Previously, when you ran the reconcile-secrets.sh script to update the password seed, the script displayed an error message.
This problem is fixed.    
TP-71950
Previously, when the server was under high load, in some cases, the results microservice restarted indefinitely. This issue occurred when the Kubernetes supervisor stopped the results microservice during a database locking process.  
This problem is fixed.
TP-74534
Previously, when you tried to publish a created dataset after the migration from an earlier version to 10.1.3 or 10.2.0, you were unable to publish the dataset to a Git repository.
This problem is fixed.
TP-73109
Previously the command-line interface was displaying warnings about Ingress deprecation during the installation of Rational Test Automation Server 10.1.3 or 10.2.0 on Lightweight Kubernetes (k3s).
This problem is fixed.


Release 10.2.0
Link Date Released Status

List of fixes

ID APAR Description
TP-70940
Previously, during the installation of Rational Test Automation Server, checks were not made to verify that the supplied ingress domain was valid.
This problem is fixed.
Now, when you provide the details for the ingress domain, checks are performed for the following constraints:
  • The domain name must not exceed 253 characters in length.
  • Each element of the domain must not exceed 63 characters.
An additional check is made to ensure that the pattern, derived from the ingress domain, used to create hostnames dynamically, generates hostnames that conform to the same constraints.
You can disable the additional check by specifying --set preflight.validateHostPattern=false. If the ingress domain name does conform to the constraints, some of the service virtualization features might not work correctly.    
TP-71416 Previously, when you attempted to run an API Suite on Rational Test Automation Server that is installed on OpenShift, and when the API project contains a vast set of resources, the Execute button in the Execute test asset dialog box was enabled after a delay or at times not enabled at all.
This problem is fixed.
TP-71950
Previously, when the server was under high load, in some cases, the results microservice restarted indefinitely. This issue occurred when the Kubernetes supervisor stopped the results microservice during a database locking process. 
This problem is fixed.

Release (10.0.2, Fix Pack 1)
Link Date Released Status

List of fixes

ID APAR Description
TP-63678 PH21363

Previously, the installer for Rational Test Automation Server only checked for free space in the root directory, which prevented you from using a different file system for the installation. Even if you specified a different file system for the server installation, the installer checked for 20GB free space in the root directory, which caused the Rational Test Automation Server installation to fail. This problem was fixed.

TP-63775 Previously, in Rational Test Automation Server, it was not clear that classifications could only be made for encrypted datasets. This problem was fixed.
Release (10.0.2)
Link Date Released Status

List of fixes

ID APAR Description
TP-60261 Previously, removing a dataset from a classification ID prevented the dataset from being added back to any classification IDs in the project. This problem was fixed.
TP-61178 Previously, installing Rational Test Automation Server in GUI mode fails at the 'Preparing the server' step with no information about the error or what to do. This problem was fixed.
TP-60247 Previously, clicking Previous at the end of installing Rational Test Automation Server returned you to the previous screen causing a reinstall or the server to prepare again. This problem was fixed.
TP-60351 Now, an execution that is canceled is just displayed during one hour since the canceled date. After this time out the execution disappears automatically from the Progress view.
TP-57138 Previously, the 'last contact' in the Agents page was not updated while viewing that page. This problem was fixed.
TP-59801 Performance is now improved when running AFT tests on Rational Test Automation Server.
TP-61179 Previously, executing a test on a non-English system failed. This problem was fixed.
TP-61032 Previously, restarting Rational Test Automation Server (for example, shutdown.sh then startup.sh) failed to remove the execution containers, which consumed disk space. When the disk space became critically low, a blank screen for the server UI was shown. This problem was fixed.
TP-60284 After a user was deleted from Keycloak, when you logged in to Rational Test Automation Server, all the projects owned by this deleted user would appear in the "Other Projects" section with the label ("0" owners). No users (even one with admin role) could take the ownership of these "orphan" projects. Admin users would receive a 404 error when trying. This problem was fixed.
TP-58572 Previously, execution results with status "Complete with Error" or "Launch failed" were displayed with inconsistent colors. In verdict statistics views (in Overview and Results pages) they were displayed in blue, whereas in the detail tables they were displayed in red. This problem was fixed.
TP-61285 Previously, you could review test results for an archived project. This problem was fixed.
TP-61068 Previously, a new project did not show on the Home page when the number of projects was 100 or more. This problem was fixed.
TP-58024 Rational Test Automation Server Login and Account pages now support internationalization.
TP-59774 When you check in a project without a root directory a dialog box is displayed with the message: 

You cannot check in desktop client projects to the root of the Git repository. All checked-in desktop client projects must contain a parent directory within the Git repository. 

For example, if the desktop project contained the following assets: 
-MyProject/.project 
-MyProject/MyTest.testsuite 

Then the Git repository should contain 
-MyProject/.project 
-MyProject/MyTest.testsuite 

and not just 
/.project -> Will cause an error 
/MyTest.testsuite
TP-58125 Previously, Rational Test Automation Server did not release resources after they had exited. This problem was fixed.
