Known issues

Summary Description Version
Peformance with active API throttling codebeamer 21.09 introduces API throttling, which is active by default (for more details, please refer to the official documentation here: API Throttling default value). This severely negatively impacts the performance when exporting data. 2.5.x
Colors in formatted notes of exported elements are not supported If elements from EA with formatted notes (bullet lists, numberings, bold text, etc.) are exported, colors are not considered in the description field of the tracker items in codebeamer. This is due to a restriction in codebeamer. 2.5.x
Delete detection during import When importing elements from codebeamer to EA, the connector does currently not detect elements that were removed in codebeamer. In a future release this feature will be implemented similiar as the "Obsolete Items" mechanism for exports. 2.5.x
Order of elements not considered during export The current release does not replicate the order of elements from EA in codebeamer. 2.5.x
QEA format not supported The new QEA format is not supported, please use QEAX. (See Why does LemonTree.Connect not work with the QEA file format?) 2.5.x
