You may see an Upgrade Notice dialog informing that you will be logged out immediately to complete the update process. Because the SnapLogic platform consists of multiple applications, you will likely see this message a few times.
We recommend that you upgrade to the latest browser version.
Accounts and Platform updates
Some accounts may have a fixed time for refresh tokens, such as Google accounts that must be refreshed every hour. If that refresh needs to occur when the platform is down for an update, the refresh does not occur. To prevent these accounts from failing after a new platform deployment, we recommend you to refresh your accounts before the designated downtime. If the platform is down for longer than an hour, you will need to refresh those accounts once the platform is back online.
Designer and Manager
Added GitHub integration to enable users to add a project’s assets to GitHub repositories. This feature allows you to checkout your GitHub repository to a project, and supports Push, Pull, and Commit requests.
Enhanced Iris, SnapLogic’s Integration Assistant, to provide suggestions for upstream Snaps for a selected Snap.
Enhanced Pipeline search in the Dashboard (execution list) to include pipeline parameters in the pipeline search. It now searches the pipeline name, Snaplex, node name, and user.
Enhanced the Ultra Pipeline Tasks to support passing the bearer token as a query parameter for authorization in systems where passing the bearer token as a header is not supported.
Added a new match operator expression to the Expression language. The match operator can be used to conditionally evaluate one of a number of expressions, based on whether an input value matches a given pattern.
Added a new expression hasPath to the Expression language. It is a boolean expression that can check the existence of an object in a JSONPath.
Disabling external process (such as popen) creation on Cloudplex via the Script Execute or custom Snap. While external process creation support continues on Groundplex, this may be disabled upon customer request to email@example.com.
Disabling read/write access to files in the Snaplex installation folder while executing pipelines.
New behavior: Math.pow(9, 0.5) returns 3 Math.pow(9, 1.5) returns 27
If any of your existing pipelines use the Math.pow expression, then you might want to check the output to ensure it is as expected. In case of any discrepancies, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enhanced the Activity Log UI, enabling you to view the number of log entries available, and view log entries in sets of 100.
This section provides the Snap updates for the August 2018 (4.14) release. This release also includes the patches made to Snaps in the 4.13 release, as listed in the 4.13 Dot Releases page.
Pipelines that are already started before a Snap update will continue to run with the older version of the Snaps. Only pipelines started after the new Snaps are deployed will run with the new Snaps.
For Ultra pipelines, the currently running instances will continue to run with the older Snap packs. Editing and saving the task instance in Manager will cause a rolling restart of the ultra pipeline instances and the new Snap Packs will get picked up.
Customers using SQL Server with Windows authentication and SAP will need to restart their Groundplex and Cloudplex instances.
