New functionality

IDMTA-1595
New functionalityFor the process of adding a new Application to MTA, the Mendix user is now authorized using a Personal Access Token (PAT). We have removed the API Key from the Mendix User in MTA. All communication with Mendix is now secured via PAT's.
Release actionsCreate a new PAT and select these scopes:
- mx:deployment:read
- mx:modelrepository:repo:read.
Enter this PAT into MTA.
Delete the old one.

IDMTA-1569
New functionalityWe have released the Menditect Call Hierarchy Extension. With this extension, the entire call hierarchy of a single Microflow can be viewed in Mendix Studio Pro. The extension also allows for test generation from Studio Pro, whereby a Test Case is created to execute a microflow, and setting all necessary parameters.
Release actionsNone.

IDMTA-1789
New functionalityImproved the performance of test runs, resulting in test execution that is up to 4 times faster.
Release actionsNone.

IDMTA-96
New functionalityIt is now possible to duplicate a "Create" teststep, allowing the creation of multiple objects of the same entity in the same Test Case, without having to use Data Variation and persist each object one-by-one.
Release actionsNone.

IDMTA-1641
New functionalityReplaced the CI/CD v2 /rest/cicd/v2 endpoints by the new Public API /rest/mta/api endpoints.

Changes are:
- a new base URL for this Public API
- added GET testsuites and GET testcases endpoints
- added GET testsuiteruns and GET testcaseruns endpoint
- added GET applications endpoint
- added GET testconfiguration adapt status endpoint
- added GET testrun archive endpoint
Release actionsNone.

IDMTA-1733
New functionalityIt is now possible to customize the time slot where MTA runs scheduled events to cleanup data and verify internal data consistency.
Release actionsThe default time slot to run internal scheduled events is between midnight (00:00) UTC and 04:00 AM. This can be adjusted to accomodate with another timezone, by changing the "ScheduledEventsOffsetUTC" constant. The format is an integer, where 0 is the default value, 12 is the maximum value, and -12 is the minimum value.

IDMTA-1720
New functionalityRemoved the MtaDocVersion constant that was used to link to the correct MTA version in the documentation site. The correct MTA version is now derived from the release version that is also shown on the top-right in MTA.
Release actionsNone: the constant will be automatically removed upon deployment.

IDMTA-1651
New functionalityIt is now possible to copy values from a String Unlimited attribute to the clipboard.
