Recent IQ Server Releases

1.40 (November)

Removal of Calculate Trends

The Calculate Trends feature previously available in the IQ Dashboard has been removed. Please use Success Metrics for similar functionality.

Configuring baseUrl no longer forces the application URL

Setting the baseUrl will only change the application URL for email notifications. Requests from any application URL through IQ Server will be maintained. Specifically, proxies should make use of the X-Forwarded-Proto and X-Forwarded-Host headers to match a user-facing URL.

1.39 (October)

The IQ Server 1.39 release contains the following updates:

Success Metrics Performance

Repeated loads of a Success Metrics Report within the same aggregation interval will now load more quickly due to additional data caching within the IQ Server.

Always up-to-date Success Metrics

Success Metrics Reports can now be configured to update constantly. Previously, the reports would only update at the beginning of each calendar month. When creating a Success Metrics Report, the user may now choose the aggregation interval for the report, with options of "by calendar month" and "by most recent evaluation." This replaces the "daily aggregations" feature that was added to Success Metrics in the 1.36 release of IQ Server. See the Success Metrics page for more details.

New Save Filter workflow

The Save Filter modal on the IQ Dashboard has been updated to help the user more clearly distinguish between overwriting an existing filter and saving a filter under a new name.

Improved Sorting of Dashboard Results

Manually sorting columns within the IQ Dashboard will now sort over the entire result set instead of only the limited number of rows that are displayed within the browser.

Security Fixes for IQ plugins

New versions of Maven, Hudson/Jenkins 1.x, and SonarQube plugins have been released to resolve vulnerable, but not exploitable, dependencies.

1.38 (October)

The IQ Server 1.38 release contains the following update:

Lifecycle XC Report Improvements

Component names in the Identified Components section of Lifecycle XC reports have been standardized across several of the supported ecosystems and formats. This improvement aims to bring further clarity to the user in recognizing the reported components. For more information, please see the Lifecycle XC topic.

Notable IQ Server Updates

The Sonatype Integrations team is happy to announce the release of Docker image evaluations in Nexus IQ Server tooling. Docker image tars can be scanned using the latest versions of Nexus IQ tools. Please check the Release Notes to see requirements for Docker evaluations.  Older versions of Nexus IQ tools will scan Docker images but create incorrect results without notification. Additional information can be found in both CLI Evaluating an Application and IQ for Jenkins Docker Images.
We are excited to announce the availability of the Nexus IQ Server plugin for Microsoft Visual Studio users. Developers who use Visual Studio now have access to the precise component intelligence available in Nexus Lifecycle. They can easily identify which components meet corporate guidelines and which ones do not as soon as the component is selected. Having this intelligence directly within the IDE enables developers to choose components that are free from security vulnerabilities,…
The IQ Server team is pleased to announce the availability of Success Metrics charts. These charts demonstrate the value of IQ Server, showing the progress your organization is making by presenting changes in metrics over time. You can access Success Metrics through the IQ Server toolbar. For more information, see the Success Metrics topic.
