Issue summary

Note: The “Usable in RC?” column indicates whether individual features, enhancements, and fixes are usable during the Release Control window before final release. Atom and connector updates are included in Release Control and usable, but neither the AtomSphere platform nor Dell Boomi browse Atoms are updated until the actual release. Therefore, until the actual release:
  • You cannot use Atom and connector enhancements and fixes with companion platform changes.

  • You cannot use connector enhancements and fixes with browse changes for connectors that support browsing only through a Dell Boomi Atom Cloud.

Enhancements

AreaIDUsable in RC?Summary
Atom InstallersRUN-198NoThe Atom, Molecule, and Atom Cloud installers and updaters are modified to use Java 1.8.0_221. Dell Boomi Atom Clouds are also modified to use Java 1.8.0_221.
AtomSphere API and Partner APIB2B-547NoUse the API to set Atom extension values for Communication Channels.

To learn more about this enhancement, see the topic Atom Extensions object.

AtomSphere API and Partner APIB2B-548NoUse the API to set environment extension values for Communication Channels.

To learn more about this enhancement, see the topic Environment Extensions object.

AtomSphere API and Partner APIINT-982NoUse the API to GET a single audit log document. Unlike QUERY results, single audit log documents include audit log entries of type as.extension (extension values). Each QUERY result now contains a document ID that is used with the new form of the GET operation.

To learn more about this enhancement, see the topic Audit Log object.

PlatformBOOMI-25053NoAPI Management users can select a new Authentication Type, Gateway, in the Shared Web Server panel of Atom Management.

To learn more about this enhancement, see the topic Shared Web Server panel.

PlatformBOOMI-38209NoAPI components are now called API Service components to distinguish them from the new API Proxy components.
PlatformINT-927NoIt is easier to set date formats within Map functions as a result of the addition of drop-down options.
Platform, AS2 Client connectorB2B-545NoNew AS2 Send action document properties are available, enabling you to dynamically set the receiver and sender IDs from the outbound message using profile elements. The new document properties are AS2 From ID and AS2 To ID.
Microsoft Azure Blob Storage connectorBOOMI-37874YesThe connector’s error messaging is improved.
OData Client connectorCON-122YesFor navigation properties in the OData v4 Query operation, you can select a non-leaf node and receive all of its leaves or select a leaf node without selecting an intermediate branch. This enhancement prevents the resulting URL from being too long and supports $expand without requiring a nested $select. Re-importing a profile enables these enhancements for existing operations.

To learn more about this enhancement, see the topic OData Client operation (V 4.0).

SAP connectorBOOMI-36741NoEnable Low Latency Logging is available as an option in Listener Settings within the connection. If this option is selected for a connection used in a Low Latency process, you can still troubleshoot the process while taking advantage of improved processing speed.

To learn more about this enhancement, see the topic SAP connection.

SAP connectorCON-156YesTo facilitate troubleshooting, inbound documents are preserved after failed General Mode listener process executions, and the documents are available in Process Reporting. Low Latency processes do not preserve documents.
