CQM (v1.2.10) and Kiuwan Engine (master.p455.q7112.a1705)


A new Kiuwan’s CQM version (v.1.2.10) is available.

Basically, v1.2.10 contains new rules for SQL embedded in Cobol programs.

If you are using CQM, these new rules are active and will be applied to new analyses.

If you are using your own custom model, you can activate them in case you want to be applied to your code.

In order for these new rules be applicable, your Kiuwan account must allow for automatic engine upgrade. Unless you have blocked Kiuwan Engine, Kiuwan Local Analyzer will automatically upgrade it to the last version once a new analysis is run.


You can find new rules by comparing v1.2.10 of CQM against previous version.  A detailed description of the behavior of these new rules is available in rule’s description.

Privileges to access Kiuwan Messenger

In-app access to Kiuwan Support (through Kiuwan Messenger) has been modified so the account owner can fully control who get access to it.

  • Support access is restricted to owner and admin users and a number of users (3 max by default).  Account owner and admin users will always have privilege to Messenger access. Additionally, access can also be granted to other users (up to 3) in User management section of your account.
  • This access privileges will be applied to new accounts from now on. If you need to grant access to more users than the default (3), please contact your Kiuwan account representative.
  • For existing accounts, by default only owners and admins are granted to access Messenger. If you are the owner or admin, please review your account to grant support access to any other users who can need it.


Filters now apply to CSV and PDF reports

Whatever filters you use in Kiuwan dashboards, those filters will be applied when you export to CSV and PDF (defects, action plans, rules, etc.).

In other words, displayed and exported list of records will be coincident.
