Comments for methodology cards, evidence, and notes

Comments, notifications, and subscriptions introduced in Dradis v3.0 have been extended to include methodology cards, notes, and evidence in projects. You can leave a comment tagging another user, subscribe to be notified of comments and receive notifications for cards, notes, evidence, and issues. All comments are included during project import/export with dradis-project.

Checking for empty fields

Dradis will check for empty fields when saving a field required by your template and when validating your project before exporting a report. Catching and correcting these empty fields before generating your report will help prevent the dreaded ambiguous cell mapping Word error.

Pre-flight tool upload validator

While uploading output from a tool into a project, Dradis will check your Plugin Manager configuration against your report template configuration. If your template is configured to require a “Recommendations” field but no #[recommendation]# field is defined in the Plugin Manager for this output file type, Dradis will throw a warning.

A quick video summary of what’s new in this release:

Comments, notifications, and subscriptions

You can now comment on issues within projects.  You can also tag other members of your team in a comment, or subscribe to a conversation.

If a team member is tagged in a comment or subscribed to a conversation that has received a comment, they will see a notification when they open their project.

One project per tab

You may now have multiple projects open in several tabs of your browser.  You are now able to switch freely between projects and tabs altering their content in any order – a boon for multitaskers!

API endpoints for Content Blocks and Document Properties

For users of our REST API, we have now added endpoints for Content Blocks and Document Properties. Now you may create, update, retrieve, and delete Content Blocks and Document Properties through the API.

Comments, notifications, & subscriptions

Efficiently collaborate with your team using comments, notifications, and subscriptions inside of Dradis.

We heard you. There are times that you need to discuss a Dradis project with your team. Gone are the days of jumping on Slack or sending an email with a question or request for edits. Instead, leave a comment! Keep all of your Dradis talk inside Dradis.

Comments, notifications, and subscriptions are brand new in Dradis Community Edition (CE) v3.10 (and coming in the next release of Dradis Pro!).

Let’s jump straight into an example of how these new features improve team collaboration:

I’m working on Dradis CE (username rachkor) and have a question for another team member (username daniel). He wrote up a new Issue, but I think that the solution needs expanding. Instead of writing an email or finding him on chat, I scroll to the comment form at the bottom of the Issue:

Add comments to your Dradis Issues

Not only can I comment on the Issue, but I can also mention @daniel by name:

Mention other Dradis users in your comments

The next time Daniel logs in to Dradis, he’ll be greeted by a notification from me:

Get notifications from any mentions in Dradis comments

Comments are included in the Recent activity feed so that you can keep up with your team as a whole, even if you aren’t involved in a specific conversation.

When you comment on an Issue or a teammate mentions you in a comment, you’ll be automatically subscribed to that Issue. If you need to subscribe (or unsubscribe!) from notifications on a specific Issue, click the subscribe/unsubscribe button:

Subscribe or unsubscribe from comment notifications

We’re excited to unveil this new phase of collaboration within Dradis and can’t wait to hear what you think! Want to check it out? Grab the latest version of Dradis CE from GitHub with these instructions and test out the comments, notifications, and subscriptions. These new features will ship in the next release of Dradis Pro. If you’re a Pro user, stay tuned for a release notice soon!
