Platform Enhancements

Introducing User Management for SnapLogic Applications

Org administrators now have the choice to enable user's access for applications enabled for the Org (for example, Flows and/or IIP) and to set a default application for each user through the Users screen in Manager. You can provide access for applications (IIP and/or Flows in the example below) for all users or specific users by selecting the corresponding checkboxes on the right side of the Users screen in the user details table row.

Setting your user’s application access through the Users screen.

Alternatively, you can set the default SnapLogic application for users through the Set Org Default Application dialog in Manager > Organization Settings.

  • Users who are not configured for Flows are presented with an informational page where they can request access to the feature.

Known Issues

  • Fixed an issue where the Set default application Help hook on the Manager page was linked to an incorrect documentation page.

  • Fixed an issue where the last login page was not redirecting users to the Flows page from the SnapLogic login page.

  • Fixed an issue where the data for Dashboard Snaplex tab for Nodes metrics appeared to be collected every minute.

  • Fixed an issue where the Help link for documentation was disabled for new, non-saved Snaps.

  • Fixed an issue where the default button is missing in the OEM settings.

  • Fixed an issue where subscription status update notifications for API management are sent to the approver instead of the app owner.

  • Fixed an issue where Pipeline execution duration is shown incorrectly in the Dashboard.

  • Fixed an issue where concurrent API usage detail is taking too long to load.

Intelligent Integration Platform (IIP) Enhancements

Introducing the New SnapLogic Studio (Beta)

The upcoming SnapLogic Studio will replace the SnapLogic Dashboard to simplify and optimize the user experience. To experience Studio, log into SnapLogic and click the Try Beta Now button on the announcement banner.

Execution Overview is the first Studio component that is released as a Beta feature. It consolidates the Pipeline and Task tabs in the Dashboard and provides summaries and details of Pipeline Executions.

Until we communicate otherwise, you can access both the old and the new user interfaces. The data displayed in both user interfaces is the same.
