Iron Mountain PCS 5.5.5 Release Notes


Release 5.5.5 introduces minor enhancements, fixes and operational improvements for the Policy Center application.


We are very excited to announce our “Voice of the Customer” release. All the enhancement requests in this release came from our client community! Thank you for your continued support and engagement.

  • For those clients using “Rule Groups,” i.e., mapping citations to Rules instead of the more traditional mapping citations to Record Classes, you can now display mapped citations in the IG Portal.
  • We’ve added a flag icon for citations in the IG Portal. This small change will make identification of the jurisdiction for the citation much easier.
  • You now can “tag” citations as a “Principle Authority,” which will be visible in both the Working Copy and the IG Portal. The idea with this enhancement is that often, one or two citations, out of a large group, are responsible for driving the retention conclusion for a record class. You’ll now have the ability to identify those citations that are driving the retention conclusion.
  • Since introducing the IG Portal, we’ve continued to introduce enhancements to make it more visually appealing. This release contains several new enhancements
    • The hyperlink color can now be customized
    • Enhancements to the layout and organization of detailed information on the right-hand panel to make it cleaner. We've removed some unnecessary information (rule code, data owner code, etc.) to unclutter the presentation.
  • We’ve updated the Rule Validation report to incorporate the Baseline jurisdiction. Now Baseline works the same as Global.
  • Finally, we’ve introduced a new Security Role titled “Records Administrator" which is designed to make additional features available to members of the Records Management team while ensuring overall control of the Records Retention Schedule.


We continue to squash defects when we find them. A few minor issues were resolved with the comments widget and we fixed a long loading issues which a few our clients encountered.
