New Capabilities

This release contains a range of new capabilities that are described in its release notes:

Some of the highlights are:

  • Metrics – Calculations on metric results
  • Configuration Management – Related item submissions
  • Categories – Skill based control
  • Link rules – Cardinality control
  • Item Ownership – Set item ownership of item’s related items
  • New Cradle and Toolsuite installers


It is available from our website here:

You need a new Security Code for 7.3, other Security Codes cannot be used. There is a database conversion from 7.2 to 7.3. The converter will run automatically if you install Cradle-7.3 over the top of, in the same directory as, the earlier version of Cradle from which you are upgrading.

You must upgrade all Cradle installations to 7.3. Cradle-7.2 clients cannot connect to a 7.3 server, and a 7.3 server cannot serve Cradle-7.2 clients.

We hope that you will welcome the new capabilities in this new version!
