Wonder Boy Development Highlights & Support Notes

We're hard at work on our next quarterly release, Wonder Boy, which will be rolling out in the June/July 2024 time frame.

Please follow this article and its comments to receive updates throughout the quarter about new features and functionality that we're working on for the Vanguard release. We'll also use this document to capture highlights of additions and updates to our mobile platforms and the xMatters REST API.

For a list of changes made in each deployment that aren't covered in the Development Highlights, see the support notes included below each highlight. While most features will be added to production environments as part of our quarterly releases, the support notes typically describe fixes, which can sometimes affect product behavior.

Release schedule

Here are the dates we're expecting the release to be available:

  • Non-production environment access: Tuesday, June 25, 2024
  • Production environment access: Tuesday, July 23, 2024
Customers interested in previewing new features before they're released can opt into our Early Access Program (EAP), which delivers new features into non-production environments as they're rolled off the assembly line.

May 6-10, 2024

Enhanced reporting capabilities

You can now view audit records for workflows and users with the enhanced System Audit Report (previously called the Workflows Audit Report). The report features a more intuitive way to display audit information, including easier access to data and more filter options.


Reduce incident setup time

The long-awaited incident playbooks feature is now available! Create plays with a standard set of tasks that all incidents should run through. Customize your playbooks even further by adding conditions that new incidents should match before a play is applied to it. With playbooks, you can focus on resolving the incident with accurate context immediately available to you.


Support notes (week of May 6 - 10)

xMatters Internal Reference No. Summary

April 29-May 3, 2024

Even more options in Flow Designer

We want to call attention to some fancy new enhancements and additions in Flow Designer:

  • We've updated the Get Incident and Update Incident steps in Flow Designer to include an Incident Properties section. This lets you include the incident properties you specified when initiating the incident as outputs for use in steps downstream in your flow. The steps work across different incident types, so if an incident's type doesn't contain a property, the step ignores the update or returns the output as empty without producing an error.
  • The new Fusion Risk Management Create or Update Incident step helps streamline your incident handling process by leveraging a Salesforce authentication endpoint and letting you specify an incident ID to match with incidents in Fusion. If the ID matches an existing Fusion incident, it updates the existing incident with the latest information. If there is no matching ID, it creates a new incident in Fusion using the provided data. 

These updates are available in all production instances, so try them out now!
