Question

What functionality will remain the same and will change in the FlexNet Operations Cloud ALM Reporter?

Answer

Many of the core capabilities of the ALM reporter will remain the same:
  • Data refresh schedule
  • Configuration user flow to create and schedule reports
  • Universes for Product Set-up and Download History will remain the same
There are changes to treatment of data results in 2018 R1:
