Just recently Oracle announced the latest JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Release 184.108.40.206. It supports EnterpriseOne Applications Release 9.2. We already updated our public demo environment to the latest tools release 220.127.116.11 for you to test.
New enhancements included in Release 18.104.22.168
Select Multiple Rows in a Form Request
This feature enables the orchestration designer to pass in a specific list of grid rows for the orchestration to operate upon or to specify filtering criteria for the rows that the orchestration will act upon. Particularly in cases where the rows to be acted upon are not consecutive or cannot be filtered in the query-by-example row, this feature gives the orchestration designer more control over selecting grid rows.
Pass a Version to a Report Service Request
This feature now enables the orchestration designer to dynamically pass a report version into the report step as a variable. For example, for a report that has many versions, an orchestration designer can build a single report request and pass a version into that step from an orchestration input, or even from a value that is derived in a previous orchestration step. In this way, a single report step can serve to run any version of a report, giving orchestrations even more flexibility and intelligence.
Array Variables for External REST Calls
Sometimes the external service returns the data as simple variables, such as strings or numbers; other times the service returns an array of data, for example, a list of customer names, account numbers, and addresses. With this enhancement, those returned arrays can be mapped to orchestration variables, which can then be acted upon and iterated over by subsequent orchestration steps.
Return REST Header Parameters as Orchestration Variables
This feature extends that capability to parameters that are passed through the response header instead of the body. For example, after successful authentication, a REST service may return an authentication token in the response header. With this enhancement, that token can be passed as a variable to subsequent orchestration steps to maintain an authenticated session.
Pass OAuth 2.0 Client ID and Client Secret in the Request Body of an Orchestration
This enhancement gives the orchestration designer the choice of sending the client ID and client secret in the request header or in the request body, as is required by some third-party systems. With this added flexibility, Orchestrator can interact securely with a broader range of third-party systems.
Secure Session Balancing Across AIS Servers
This enhancement improves the scalability and fault-tolerance of the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne architecture by distributing the load of session requests among multiple AIS servers.
Health Check for Basic Auth Configuration for the AIS Server
This Health Check provides a quick and easy way to validate that Basic Auth has been configured properly, thereby simplifying the initial configuration, server restart, and troubleshooting processes.
User Defined Object Dependencies with Orchestrator Components
This enhancement enables the View Dependencies feature in the UDO Admin application for orchestrations and orchestration components, thereby simplifying the former tedious process to view the chain of UDO dependencies for orchestrations.
Form Extension – Add Associated Description to Edit Control on a Form
This feature enables a business analyst to add an associated description to an edit control on a form as a form extension without needing to create a custom modification in the Form Design Aid (FDA) development tool. For example, if a business analyst creates a form extension and adds Item Number to the form, they can now also include the item’s associated description.
Enhanced Browser Support for Media Objects
In addition to the rich user experience, this feature enables customers to use certified browsers to access the same capabilities that ActiveX historically provided, including support for Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Google Docs.
Improved Business Continuity with Native Oracle Database Connection Management
This feature introduces the Oracle Database native connection management for Oracle Database customers, which provides more control over the state of the Oracle Database connections compared to the JD Edwards database connection pool.
Default Browser for Web Development Client
This feature enables JD Edwards EnterpriseOne developers to use any JD Edwards EnterpriseOne certified web browser for the web development client; previously the browser option was limited to Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE). With this feature, developers are able to develop and test their solutions on the development client with a browser that matches the browsers used by the users. Additionally, administrators no longer need to provision and support IE just for the development client if IE is not part of their corporate strategy.
