Release Date: 21 August 2021
OneCloud will be making platform enhancements, Saturday, August 21, 2021, from 11 am to 1 pm EDT. There will be no downtime for this release.
Data Prep Enhancements
Additional optimization has been deployed to ensure the best performance for Mapping Groups that utilize Data Prep Variables in the mapped (To) result. No action is needed as this enhancement is automatically utilized by all existing and new Mapping Groups.
Integration Studio Enhancements
The iteration capabilities of OneCloud Integration Studio have been expanded significantly. Iterations now support lists as well as the concept of Repeat until which allow an interaction to continue until a specific condition is met. A new Exit Group Event has been added which also allows an interaction within a Command Group to be stopped when a condition is met.
Iteration Outputs are now available that provide valuable information including the total number of iterations, the current iteration index, and boolean values denoting if the current iteration is the first or last in the list of iterations. Additionally, Commands that are part of an iteration now include the Command ID as well as the iteration Result ID.
These enhancements greatly enhance the already powerful concept of iteration. To better support these new features, iteration is now its own tab on the Command and Command Group forms.
Variable Transformation has been enhanced to enable math operations including Add, Subtract, Multiply, Divide, and Round to be applied to Variables and Outputs in OneCloud Integration Studio. These transformations support a variety of use cases. Additionally, math transformations can be combined with the enhanced iterations to support various looping concepts often utilized in iteration logic.
Workspace and Chain Variables now have an additional description field that can be used to store notes and information about how the Variable is used. The name field for Chain Variables has also been enhanced so that it can be resized.
Variables Transformation has been enhanced to allow the transformations assigned to array fields (grey bubble with blue background fill) to be modified.
SAML Encrypt Assertion
OneCloud Single Sign On (SSO) now encrypts the SAML assertion when communicating with the provider. SSO requests have always utilized HTTPS to provide a secure communication path. Encryption of the assertion provides an additional layer of security in the SSO login process.
Oracle Enterprise Data Management Cloud (EDM)
The Oracle EDM BizApp now includes an Import Dimension Command which allows a dimension to be imported to EDM from a csv or zip file.
The Workiva BizApp now includes automatic retry attempts for any 500 (server-side) errors encountered by the BizApp. This enhancement makes the Workiva BizApp Commands more resilient.
The following defects are fixed in this platform update:
Export Oracle EPM Cloud snapshot failing
Intermittent issues with Workiva BizApp Commands
Failed node but Chain status is successful
Unable to promote Chains
Oracle PBCS & EPBCS command "User Provisioning Report" failing
SFTP List Directory Command returns NULL
Pause event only happens once in an iteration
ASO/BSO Export to Tabular not working
Chains table view not sorting properly
