Blueprint Release Notes
The Blueprint Release Notes provides an overview of the new features and enhancement requests that were implemented in each version of Blueprint and describes any important upgrade advisories and resolved issues.
It also outlines the known issues, and workarounds if applicable, that you may experience while using a specific version of Blueprint.
New features in this release include integrations with Blue Prism, Automation Anywhere, and Microsoft Power Automate to scale and streamline your RPA (Robotic Process Automation) efforts. Key improvements have also been made to the Administration Portal that now enable you to complete all user access management directly in Blueprint 11.2.
Also in this release, we're introducing the term Digital Blueprints. Digital Blueprints encompass everything you need to efficiently and effectively deliver business solutions for your digital transformation. A typical Digital Blueprint includes detailed process flows, functional and non-functional requirements, user stories, compliance and regulatory requirements, and both functional and acceptance tests among other critical information for successful solution delivery. They can be used to drive a number of digital transformation use cases such as RPA, LoCode-NoCode development, the migration of legacy applications, custom development, or for commercial off the shelf technology implementations.
- Export a Digital Blueprint to Blue Prism - Easily design and optimize processes and then upload your Digital Blueprints into Blue Prism for accelerated and higher-quality bot development. Communicate all key enterprise context by tracing Processes to constraints like business rules, policies, controls, and NFRs to de-risk automation initiatives.
- Export a Digital Blueprint to Automation Anywhere - Seamlessly capture, model, and improve processes in Blueprint and then automatically push them to Automation Anywhere along with any connected enterprise constraints such as traces or attachments for higher-quality and accelerated bot development at scale. Digital Blueprints can be automatically pushed into Automation Anywhere Enterprise A2019 or uploaded into Automation Anywhere V11.
- Export a Digital Blueprint to Microsoft Power Automate - In Blueprint 11.2, you can scale your RPA efforts and jump-start enhanced robot development by uploading aligned and prioritized business processes in the form of Digital Blueprints into Microsoft Power Automate.
- Change Artifact Type - Change artifact types to better manage the lifecycle of an artifact.
- Administration Portal - Manage groups and role assignments in Blueprint to assign different levels of access per project for each group. Administrators can also now create projects without a specific template to provide them with an empty canvas according to their needs.
Implemented Enhancements Requests
- When creating a new role assignment, users can now select more than one user or group to assign to that role. (Issue# ER262971)
The following issues were resolved for Blueprint 11.2:
- When a project is closed in Blueprint, the Explorer refreshes as expected and the project is no longer displayed. (Issue# 23400)
- When creating a new role assignment, multiple users and groups can now be added simultaneously. (Issue# 262971)
- Formal Reviews can now be opened as expected when a large number of users are accessing and working on them concurrently. (Issue# 23342)
- Adding artifacts or participants to a review can be performed successfully after upgrading to version 5.1. (Issue# 23324)
- User authentication during login no longer fails when the language is set to anything other than English. (Issue# 23171)
- User stories are now successfully created without any error messages after installing the Agile Pack. (Issue# 22804)
- Reviews are now successfully opened and operable via the link provided in the email to the participant. (Issue# 21438)
The following are the known limitations for Blueprint 11.2:
- Changing an artifact’s type may cause some features of RPA integrations to break with regards to integrating the same process multiple times (changing an artifact’s prefix may cause the system to not recognize it as the same artifact).
- Changing an artifact’s type may result in the loss of workflow state (the new artifact type may not have the workflow applied to it).
- Very complicated processes are not accurately displayed in Automation Anywhere A2019 when Digital Blueprints are automatically pushed into Automation Anywhere.
- When uploading Digital Blueprints to Automation Anywhere V11, sub-folders for some sub-artifacts like trace and twin tether folders may not be displayed in the menu.
- Processes with GoTo logic (looping/switching branches) where sub-artifacts contain special characters in the name in Blueprint are not successfully exported to Automation Anywhere V11. This can be avoided by removing any special characters in the user decisions, system decisions, or user task name from the process in Blueprint.
- With the release of 11.2, Storyteller has been rebranded as Blueprint and will be referred to as Blueprint for all subsequent releases.
- Blueprint 11.2 is an opt-in release. Administrators must contact the Blueprint Support team using the Blueprint Community to have their production and staging environments upgraded to Blueprint 11.2.
For optimal performance and application experience, the latest version of Google Chrome is recommended for use with Blueprint.
If you require further assistance, or if you have encountered a problem that is not listed above, please submit a support case using the Blueprint Community.
- Blueprint users are synced with Windows Active Directory successfully when automatic sync has been configured. (Issue# 21822)
