Orange Tracker Upgrades


Current Upgrade

The ITS Academic Applications and Platforms (AAP) team upgraded Orange Tracker (OT) from JIRA version 8.20.1 to version 8.20.8. This upgrade completed over the summer of 2022 to reduce the impact to the user population.

The upgrade has some new features, staying current with database standards, and correct a few issues we have documented. We believe these improvements will enhance the user experience. We will also provide training sessions, similar to what we did last summer, and review the changes in a side-by-side manner. The training will go over the changes listed here in a live demonstration and answer any questions people bring to the meeting.
