The activate changes dialog of WATO has been reworked to improve several things:

  • It is now possible to add a comment during an activation. This optional comment is written to the audit log and can be used to document the logical reason for the changes you have made.
  • Several activations can now run in parallel while they not affect the same site. This means that on each site one activation can be executed at the same time.
  • Pending changes are now correctly acknowledged. In previous version when you started an activating, made a change during the run, the run acknowledged this just created change even if it has not been activated by the just finished activation run.
  • Pending changes are now tracked for each site individually. Previous version only knew whether or not a change has been activated on all sites.
  • Fixed locking problems during activation leading to possible issues when multiple users execute activations in parallel.
  • You can now select a custom collection of sites and activate them in a bulk.
