InterPlay 2.3.0 Release Notes

New features and enhancements

New features specific to InterPlay

Security

The attached files are checked, for their types and size, in order to avoid 'pollution' of the database (zip and xml 'bombs').

Axway AIS communication protocol is now TLS 1.2.

The system does not allow browsers to store passwords.

The number of connections per user is limited, in order to protect the system against denial of service attack. The limitation is configured through the Admin UI.

The command line tools request for user authentication.

Performance and usage

Default editor automatic generation on InterPlay side:

Some customers use only default editors for the objects they manage and they could have a huge number of objects in the configuration. The deployment consumes a lot of time in this case (objects + editors).

In order to spend less time in the deployment action, it is now possible to deploy only the object types, and the concerned default editor is now generated on the InterPlay side.

AI Internal tables support

InterPlay allows its users to create the AI internal table rows and to generate the tables mvt.mvt file to update the Rule Engine configuration. The table structure is automatically synchronized from the AI Enabler definition, in order to provide to the user the proper list of columns to be populated:

  • Collection type, containing all 'AI internal table' objects
  • Object type per AI internal table
  • Default editors (updatable) for each AI internal table

On the InterPlay side, the user is able to manage the content of the internal tables:

  • by importing values from csv files
  • by updating, creating rows
  • generating an mvt.mvt file for AI Rule Engine at export time

Date management

The user is now able to define java patterns for dates from an AI format:

  • Rule Engine authorizes only: YYYYMMDD, CYYMMDD, YYMMDD
  • Java patterns are authorized for dates in AI formats for InterPlay and Datastore usages

REST connectivity

The operations automation may be enriched, by using new REST calls available for following actions:

  • Collection ChangeStatus
  • Force unlock
  • Purge

DB management

The Purge command is optimized in order to reduce the redo log usage.
