Documention Updated for V18 Incremental Release 2

Blog Post created by Margaret_Allen Employee on Jan 21, 2016

The CA Endevor SCM – 18.0 documentation has been updated to reflect all the enhancements for Incremental Release 2, which are:


  • Element action SCL syntax allows blanks in Element and USS names-- When coding Element action SCL syntax, embedded blanks are allowed in Element and USS file and path names.
  • Alter action field level security-- The administrator can limit who can perform Alter action updates on Element record metadata depending on which metadata field the user is attempting to update. A new External Security Interface table keyword, ALTERFLD, supports Alter action security at the field level.
  • Web Services-- The Web Services installation and configuration process has been simplified and provides a process to validate the installation and configuration parameters.
  • UNIX System Services (USS) keywords and field names-- References to HFS are changed to USS, to clarify that CA Endevor SCM supports the UNIX System Services (USS) supported file types HFS, zFS, and NFS.
