Include the time in the last change field in the component list view of the rule project

Product: IBM Operational Decision Manager

It is required to display the date and time of the changes that have been made in the objects of the rule projects, for example rule flows, rules, etc.

Currently in Decision Center 8.11 - Business Console you can only see the modified date.

In previous versions of ODM, in Enterprise Console (EC) it was possible to see the date and time, and the user who modified, with this it was possible to have the traceability of recent changes. EC is no longer available in 8.11, so this functionality was lost.

    I recognize that this is not optimal. I'll discuss with the dev team the addition of a Timeline view for all versioned artifacts. And you're right that the text in the pop-up for creating a new version can be misleading when there is no Timeline available.

    Thank you for your feedback

    Timeline does not show all artifact. From the list of artifacts - rules and decision table and technical rules are the only ones going into the timeline, any edits on rule flows, operations, variable sets, resources, functions are not reflected into the timeline. Upon save, all of these prompt a pop-up stating that it will be in timeline as well, but upon checking it is not reflected other than rules and decision table and technical rules.

    Hello, there was a Design decision years ago to simplify what's displayed in the grid view. If you need to see the exact time of a change, you can open the timeline view for a rule. See

    Would that be sufficient for you ?
