Bug Fixes

  • Under certain circumstances, internal system synchronization failed inappropriately, leading to inconsistent views of data.
  • In some cases, the manual pipeline trigger was not automatically selected leading to form validation problems.
  • Specific customer build scripts could cause failures during the build step based on plugin incompatibilities.

Known Issues

  • Although customers are able to select the commit trigger, the pipeline may not actually start based on new commits.
  • The Experience Cloud notification sidebar may not load notifications consistently. Notifications, however, are visible in the Experience Cloud and, if configured, will still be sent via email.
