    Changes in Functionality

    Integrate/TIBCO BusinessWorks?

    AMBW-47731

    The default TIBCO BusinessWorks engine log level is changed from ROOT=WARN to ROOT=ERROR. This results in fewer entries being generated in the engine logs when a BusinessWorks app is started. If you want additional details, you can update the BW_LOGGER_OVERRIDES engine variable value to ROOT=WARN. 

    Develop/TIBCO Flogo®

    FLOGO-10164

    The default TIBCO Flogo  log level is changed from ROOT=WARN to ROOT=ERROR. This results in fewer entries being generated in the engine logs when a Flogo app is started. If you want additional details, you can update the FLOGO_LOG_LEVEL variable value to ROOT=WARN. 

     

    FLOGO-10511

    The validation error count for non-connected activity is changed. Hence, you see mismatch in error counts in the flow list and flow design pages.

     

    FLOGO-9982

    The branching order of execution is changed. The new order is:

    1. Success with condition/Success with no matching condition/Error(if any)
    2. Success

    If there are multiple success branches then execution is in the reverse order of addition.

    FLOGO-10490

    The way the app properties are configured has now been changed. The save option is not enabled until the configuration of all app properties is completed.

    FLOGO-9864

    The Start activity is now present on the canvas after which you can add and connect the other activities

    Integrate/TIBCO BusinessWorks? Plug-ins

    When a new version of a TIBCO BusinessWorks Plug-in is released and that plug-in supports Supplements, you must upload the Supplements for the plug-in again in TIBCO Cloud Integration.  If you deploy a new app or redeploy an existing app and the associated Supplements have not been reuploaded, the app deploy fails.  For this release the updated plug-ins that require you to reupload supplements include: 

    TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks? Plug-in for OData

    BWOD-780

    We have made a change in the formation of the OData URI. Now the filter expressions in the OData URI of OData Query/Batch activity will be enclosed in braces for Collection properties with the $filter query option : /People?$filter=Friends/any(x: ( x/UserName eq @uname))

    Migration and Compatibility

    TIBCO Cloud? Integration

    TIBCO Cloud Integration only supports the most recent version of the Hybrid Agent and one version back. The most recent version of the Hybrid Agent is version 1.7.0, and the prior Hybrid Agent was version 1.6.0.  If you have a Hybrid Agent installed that is older than version 1.6.0, you should install Hybrid Agent version 1.7.0 to ensure the best performance. 

    Deprecating and End of Support

    IPAS-20590

    In a future release, the option to select a Custom Access Key when enabling Flogo DB Services will be deprecated both in the user interface and the TIBCO Cloud Integration Platform API. When the DB Services option is enabled, a system key will be created instead. If you already have Flogo DB Services enabled with a Custom Access Key, that configuration will continue to work, however the drop-down used to select the Custom Access Key will no longer be visible. If you disable Flogo DB Services and later enable them again, the new configuration will use a system access key.

    Closed Issues

    Develop/TIBCO Flogo®

    FLOGO-10241

    Mapper activity fails at runtime if the schema used has an Anonymous array.

    FLOGO-9510

    If you rename an activity field, assertion configuration on such activities does not adjust automatically and also does not throw any validation error in the assertion file. When executing a unit test in such cases, the assertion fails.

    FLOGO-9369

    No validations are displayed  if the user enters an invalid assertion expression or performs incorrect mappings in flow inputs.

    FGDPBX-28

    The dropbox token expires in about 4 hours.

    TIBCO Flogo® Connector for Apache Pulsar

    FGPUL-268

    ProducerBusy error is displayed for Apache Pulsar Publish activity.

    FGPUL-244

    When the Apache Pulsar Producer Activity is present in a running app, topics are created when the activity executes and a message is published, not when the app starts. 

    TIBCO Flogo® Connector for TIBCO® Data Virtualization

    FGTDV-68

    TIBCO Flogo Connector for TIBCO Data Virtualization Connector failed due to TIBCO Data Virtualization session timeout. 

    FGTDV-66

    Prepared Query input parameters are mandatory for TIBCO Data Virtualization Query activity. 

    TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks? Plug-in for OData

    BWOD-770

    The system Query Options configured on the OData Service binding for Query operation are not reflected at runtime on invoking the service.

    TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks? Plug-in for OData Services for SAP S/4HANA

    BWSH-731

    When the SAP S/4HANA connection shared resource is configured for On-Premises / Private Cloud and the authentication type is set to Basic Authentication, the request URL does not connect to the appropriate SAP client if multiple SAP clients are configured in the SAP S/4HANA system. This issue is fixed.

    Note:

    To connect to the correct SAP S/4HANA client, the com.tibco.bw.palette.s4hana.sapclient Java property

    must be specified in the TIBCO BusinessWorks runtime application. The value of this Java property is a string, i.e. "200".

    To confirm that the Java property is being used, the DEBUG loglevel can be turned on for the package com.tibco.bw.palette.s4hana.runtime.

    Below is an example of a  DEBUG trace message. In this example, sap-client is set to 400.

    16:13:13.016 DEBUG [bws4hanacloud-threadpool-thread-1] com.tibco.bw.palette.s4hana.

    runtime.odata.ODataHandlerV2 - TIBCO-BW-PALETTE-S4HANACLOUD-200004: Generate HTTP 

    Request URL: [https://vhcals4hci.dummy.nodomain:44300/sap/opu/odata/sap/API_PRODUCT_SRV/

    $metadata?sap-client=400], Activity Name=[ConsumeODataService], 

    Process=[tests4h.Read_XXX], Module=[TestS4H], DeploymentUnit=[TestS4H.application:1.0].

    TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks? Plug-in for SmartMapper

    SM-3104

    New projects that use JDBC storage fail when created with TIBCO Business Studio? for BusinessWorks? version 6.9.0.
