Dell Boomi has added the following improvements to the March 2017 release of Dell Boomi AtomSphere.
EDI and B2B enhancements
Three new types of components provide increased reusability of common data among Trading Partners:
- Configure a common file transfer protocol in a reusable Communication Channel component and reference it in multiple Trading Partner components.
- Specify contact information in a reusable Organization component component and reference it in multiple Trading Partner components.
- Create a group of Trading Partners in one centralized location, a Processing Group component, that can be referenced in multiple Trading Partner components and process shapes. The Processing Group component is independently deployable so you do not need to redeploy multiple processes when the Trading Partners in your group change. Additionally, the ability to route by Processing Groups is added to the Process Route shape.
Support for multiple standards is added to Trading Partners. In the Trading Partner shape or a Start shape set to Trading Partner, you can add your company’s profile for each of the standards — EDIFACT, HL7, and X12. The process uses the correct standard during execution based on the standard used in the Trading Partner component for the partner that you trade with.
The HTTP communication method is now supported for Trading Partners.
Also, the wording of “my company” and “my trading partner” has been revised to help distinguish between Trading Partner components that are your company (“This is my company.”) and those Trading Partner components that are your partners (“This is a partner that I trade with.”).
You are no longer required to provide your Dell Boomi platform credentials when installing an Atom, Molecule, or Atom Cloud. Instead you can provide a unique installer token, which makes automating the installation process easier and more secure. Installer tokens can be generated by using:
- the Atom, Molecule, or Cloud Setup dialog when downloading the installer from the UI
- the new Installer Token object of the AtomSphere API or AtomSphere Partner API
- the AtomSphere API or AtomSphere Partner API connector
Installer tokens are specific to the account in which they are generated, and they expire after a user-specified amount of time ranging from 30 minutes to 24 hours.
Note: The API Management Broker installer also supports installer tokens.
This release provides an easier way to initiate the restart of an Atom, Molecule, or Atom Cloud by adding a Restart Atom option to the Atom Information panel. In conjunction with this change, the Restart on Save? check box is removed from the Properties panel. If you set or change a property on the Properties panel and click Save, you are prompted to restart. You have the option to restart immediately or restart later.
With Java 8 update 71 and later, users are encouraged to upgrade or replace certificates that include an MD5-based digital signature. To prevent the use of MD5 as the signature algorithm when generating X.509 certificates, the MD5 option is removed from the AtomSphere Generate Private Key wizard. The new default signature algorithm is SHA2-512.
Google Sheets connector
Google Sheets is a new connector independent from the Google Apps connector. This connector supports searches information in Google Sheets and does create, delete, get, and update operations on data.
Microsoft Azure Service Bus connector
A new connector is available to use the Microsoft Azure Service Bus for process orchestrations and data flow orchestration.
Microsoft Dynamics CRM connector
The Microsoft Dynamics CRM connection supports the online federation authentication policy.
The QuickBooks connector adds support for version 2017.
