Interval adjustments

Interval adjustments

MaintMaster 8.12 introduces separate permissions for managing interval settings, a clearer question when changing the setting and a smarter grouping of existing intervals.

In the 8.11 release we made an important improvement of how Interval settings for recurrent jobs is managed, it became its own entity making it more explicit and easier to manage several series of recurrent jobs utilizing same interval. However, this improvement also comes with a risk for unintentional changes toan interval, especially for users accustomed to the previous single setting management. For this release we have added a logical migration step to group intervals that are the same to minimize the number of different intervals. We have also added a permission for managing intervals and finally we have improved the warning message if an interval is in use by other series of recurrent jobs to make sure the user understands the width of the change. Please make sure users have correct permission when it comes to managing intervals, default is denied permission, but everyone with all permissions within system settings will get this new permission too.

Any release of MaintMaster goes through a series of stages. When we reach Release Candidate, the last step before Public Release, we make it available to all Sandbox and Training systems.
