Release Notes

Version 9 "Germknödel"

2024-04-30

The “Germknödel” is an undisputed star in the world of Austrian desserts. We are a Viennese company and love sweets – that’s why our release names are named after Viennese sweets. Discover new functions such as custom objects, a new debug mode and log levels. Also brand new is the posibility to add Cloudomation DevStack to Cloudomation Engine. If you have an active DevStack subscription, it enables you to deploy Cloud Development Environments in self-service.  You can find all the details in the release notes.

Breaking Changes

  • The legacy git integration was removed
    Git integration using the `git_config` record type was deprecated in Cloudomation version 8 and removed with Cloudomation version 9.
    Ref: #86bxcd868
  • The `default role` has now non-administrator access to all projects
    Previously the `default role` would only grant access to the `Default project`.
    Ref: #86bxrbr9w
  • GET requests to the API which send a body payload are now rejected with `BadRequest`
    Previously the body payload of a GET request would be silently ignored.
    Ref: #86bxr1jn1
  • The `is_archived` flag was deprecated in Cloudomation version 8 and removed with Cloudomation version 9
    Ref: #2w9vabu
  • The `Dev-Mode` does not use breakpoints any more
    To use breakpoints use the new `Debug-Mode`.
    Ref: #86bx39wkd
  • The scheduler now creates orphaned child executions
    In order for child executions to show up in the execution live monitor as “top level executions” they do not contain a `parent execution` reference to the scheduler any more.
    Ref: #862ked65h
  • Importing a record which references a non-existent record now fails
    Previously it would implicitly create an empty referenced record.
    Ref: #861meqbkb
  • SMTP connector input `use_tls` must be specified as a boolean value
    Previously the strings “true” and “false” were also accepted.
    Ref: #86bxzu7yp
  • LDAP connector doesn’t accept unencrypted ldap:// connections anymore if the use_ssl parameter is set to ‘true’
    Previously, the LDAP connector accepted unencrypted ldap:// connections even if the use_ssl parameter was set to ‘true’ (which is the default value).
    Ref: #86bzh6ty2

Deprecations

New Features

  • Added “object template” and “custom object” record types
    Object templates allow users to template custom objects. Once an object template has been defined, users can create custom objects based on that template from the create menu in the Cloudomation Engine UI. Lifecycle hooks are associated with each object template which specify what should happen when a custom object is created, updated or deleted.
    For example, you can define an object template for a “server”. When a new custom object “server” is created, the “create” process is started, which can, for example, deploy a virtual machine and install software on it – i.e. create a server.
    As another example, a “customer” object template can be created which defines which data are associated with a customer. When a new custom object of type “customer” is created (e.g. by calling a webhook when a new customer is created in a webshop or any other platform), the “create” process for the “customer” object is called, which can, for example, propagate the data for this customer into different other systems and trigger other processing steps required for customer onboarding.
    Custom objects allow users to think about automation in an object-oriented way. Custom objects are shown in the UI with all their associated data as well as their current status, making it easier to understand and keep an overview of entities that are associated with automations that run in Cloudomation Engine.
    Object templates allow the creation of interconnected data models that can become full ontologies to describe entities in your organisation that are associated with automations which run in Cloudomation Engine.

Version 8 "Apfelstrudel"

2023-11-22

The “apple strudel” has a vibrant history. In Vienna, the Studel established itself as a tasty and salon-worthy pastry and has been something of an Austrian national dish ever since. We are a Viennese company and love sweets – which is why our release names are named after Viennese sweets. The apple strudel is versatile and can be served both hot and cold. For an extra sweet touch, you can sprinkle it with powdered sugar or refine it with vanilla sauce. Cloudomation version 8 emulates the flexibility of the apple strudel: Discover new features such as the configuration of connectors via form, Intellisense support for Flow API modules in the online editor, native Git integration and new connectors. You can find all the details in the release notes.

  • Removed request retry logic from REST connector
    The retry logic within the REST connector was removed in favour of the more flexible retry wrapper.
    Ref: #26pxnmd
  • REST connector returns headers as list 
    Previously headers were returned as a dictionary. This did not support multiple headers sharing the same name. Now, headers are returned as a list of lists.
     
    Example previous:
    Content-Type: application/json
    Set-Cookie: foobar
    

    Now:

    - - Content-Type
      - application/json
    - - Set-Cookie
      - foobar
    - - Set-Cookie
      - another cookie

    Ref: #30ykz00

  • Flow API call record.export returns a base64 encoded zip file
    Previously record.export returned a dictionary. Now the export might be split up into several files and is returned as a base64 encoded zip file.
    Ref: #861mcc3ex
  • Reduced logging of flow API save and get calls
    The flow API methods record.save and record.get will now only log the content when the debug flag is set to True.
    Ref: #861n63bv6
  • Removed deprecated execution fields
    The fields “protect_inputs” and “protect_outputs” were removed. It is possible to hide sensitive information in inputs and outputs via the input/output schema.
    Ref: #861mc7pf4

    Ref: #861n539rc

Bug Fixes

  • Number of parallel running executions in one process are now limited
    To avoid overloading the database with too many concurrent connections it is now possible to limit the number of parallel running executions. The default value is 20 and can be increased or decreased according to your database.
    Ref: #861mukm68
  • REST connector can send and receive multiple headers with the same name
    Previously the REST connector was unable to send multiple headers with the same name. Also if multiple headers with the same name were received, only the last one would be returned.
    Ref: #30ykz00
  • Database keepalive uses a dedicated connection
    The periodic database keepalive now uses a dedicated connection in order to avoid side-effects when the database pool is exhausted.
    Ref: #861n74v2t
  • Fixed handling of execution options of statically wrapped resources
    Previously several execution options were improperly applied:
    •  run
    • roles
    • is_productive
  • Ref: #861n8z2mr, #861n2kz30, #862kgzpyh

    Ref: #861narthb

Version 7 "Gugelhupf"

2023-03-30

The “Gugelhupf” is a cake and is known and loved far beyond the borders of Austria. In the past, a Gugelhupf was served at major events.

We are a Viennese company and we like sweets – therefore we name our releases after Viennese sweets. The “Gugelhupf” can be prepared with a wide variety of ingredients. Cloudomation Version 7 shows, manages and tracks your “software-ingredients”: with the new dependency visualisation, the bundle manager and a new logging feature. But that’s not all. Check out the release notes for more!

Breaking Changes

  • Filter indirection format change
    To list Cloudomation records using a filter for attributes in related records a more verbose format must be used. Existing filter queries to the Cloudomation API which use indirection must be migrated to the new schema.
    Ref: #2vy9pbt
  • Modifying authentication-related fields of webhooks require re-authentication of the user
    A user needs to re-authenticate when enabling/disabling a webhook, changing the key of a webhook or configuring the webhook to require/not-require a Cloudomation login. There are dedicated REST-API endpoints to modify the `is_enabled`, `key`, and `require_login` fields. These fields cannot be changed directly by mutating the webhook record.
    Ref: #2x0m3gn
  • Flow-API command `log` writes to execution log
    Previously the `log` command was writing to the execution output_value. To write to the output_value please use `set_output` or `save(output_value=…)` instead.
    Ref: #861m4cud1
  • Connection execution logging moved from execution outputs to execution log
    Previously the output of connection executions would contain a “log” field. Now the logs are written to the execution logs.
    Ref: #861m4dmdk
  • Simpler input_value for webhook executions
    Executions which are created as a result of a webhook call will not receive the deprecated inputs `data_json`, `data_query` and `data_cookies` any more. They were replaced by `json`, `query` and `cookies` respectively.
    Ref: #26py0xj
  • Frontend routes specify the lookup field
    Links to Cloudomation records use the format `<Cloudomation host>/<record type>?id=<record id>`. Deprecated routes in the form `<Cloudomation host>/<record type>/<record id>` work until version 8.
    Ref: #2z5bwbv
  • Executions started by webhooks will always inherit roles from the webhook itself
    Previously, webhooks which were configured to require a Cloudomation login would create executions which inherit roles from the user who called the webhook.
    Ref: #861m867pu
  • Executions only keep the latest savepoint per default
    Added a new workspace configuration option `SAVEPOINT_RETENTION` to configure when savepoints are removed. Per default only the last savepoint will be kept.
    Ref: #85zrgj6tw

New Features

  • Bundle manager
    We’ve made it easier to load example content in the form of bundles into your Cloudomation workspace
    Ref: #2517y0k
  • Central logging
    Logging of various components were unified into a central Workspace logging feature
    Ref: #237t78t

Bug Fixes

Version 6 "Palatschinke"

2022-10-20

To the surprise of some non-Viennese, “Palatschinken” are a warm sweet dish – completely unrelated to savory “Schinken”. Flat and prepared in a pan, Palatschinken can be enjoyed with jam, ice cream or chocolate.

We are a Viennese company and we like sweets – therefore we name our releases after Viennese sweets. “Palatschinken” are a versatile dish that can be prepared in many variants. It is this scrumptious flexibility that Palaschinken and Cloudomation have in common: a delicious concept that can be adapted to your taste just as you like it.

Breaking Changes

  • Executions are automatically deleted after a fixed expiry time
    Per default, all executions will automatically be deleted (i.e. moved to the “deleted” section) after two weeks. From the “deleted” section, all records are automatically deleted permanently after another two weeks. These expiry times can be configured in the workspace settings. For cloud workspaces, this is currently only possible via the REST API. For self-managed on-premise workspaces, this is also possible via environment variables. Please reach out to support@cloudomation.com if you need help adjusting these settings.
    Ref: #2884nj3
  • Delete operation moves records to “deleted”
    Per default all delete operations will move the deleted record to a “deleted” section (equivalent to a trash bin). Deleted records are read-only. Deleted records can be restored or deleted permanently. Deleted records will automatically be deleted permanently after a defined time. The default expiry time for deleted records is 2 weeks. This can be changed in the workspace configuration. In addition, per default executions and messages will automatically be moved to the deleted section after 2 weeks. This can also be changed in the workspace configuration.
    Ref: #2884nj3
  • Resource names must be unique across all types
    Names of resources now have to be unique across all resource types. Any existing name duplication will have to be cleaned up manually before upgrading to this version or the upgrade will fail.
    Ref: #2h72zy6
    The following flow returns all duplicate resource names in your workspace. Please rename or remove any duplicates before upgrading:
import flow_api
 
def handler(system: flow_api.System, this: flow_api.Execution):
   counts = {}
   for resource in system.resources(include_archived=True):
       resource_name, resource_type = resource.get('name', 'resource_type')
       counts[resource_name] = counts.get(resource_name, 0) + 1
   counts = {
       k: v
       for k, v
       in counts.items()
       if v > 1
   }
   this.log(counts=counts)
   return this.success('all done')

New Features​

  • Deleted Records
    Per default all delete operations will move the deleted record to a “deleted” section (equivalent to a trash bin). Deleted records are read-only. Deleted records can be restored or deleted permanently. Deleted records will automatically be deleted permanently after a defined time. The default expiry time for deleted records is 2 weeks. This can be changed in the workspace configuration. In addition, per default executions and messages will automatically be moved to the deleted section after 2 weeks. This can also be changed in the workspace configuration.

    Ref: #26pxvg5
  • Cache wrapper
    The cache wrapper will return previously fetched responses from third-party systems for a defined amount of time. This can be used to increase performance of automation scripts and to reduce load on third-party systems.
    Ref: #2hcy8by
  • Timeout wrapper
    The timeout wrapper starts a child execution and waits for it to end within a timeout. If the timeout is exceeded, the child execution and all descendants are cancelled.
    Ref: #2vrrk47
  • Bundles

    Ref: #26pxpkd
  • Improved documentation
    Migrated to a new documentation library.
    Ref: #26pxvax
  • Read-only resources and projects
    Individual resources as well as projects can be set to read-only. Read-only resources can be used, but not modified.
    Ref: #26py048
  • DependencyFailedError makes failed execution available in execution object
    A commonly used pattern is to query the outputs of a failed execution. The execution attribute of a DependencyFailedError provides a quick and intuitive way to access the execution which failed.
    Ref: #26pxtnn
  • ISO3166 country-codes library available in flow api
    Flows can use the library to generate country names from ISO abbreviations and the other way around.
    Ref: #29ah2yv
  • Powershell (WinRM) connector support for Kerberos
    Kerberos authentication can be used to authenticate to a WinRM service.
    Ref: #2ajh619
  • AWS connector can upload files
    Text files, binary files or base64 strings can be uploaded to AWS APIs.
    Ref: #28zuuq5

Bug Fixes

  • Git integration now correctly handles empty files
    Ref: #2ebgjb6
  • REST connector now correctly handles binary responses
    Binary responses to REST requests can now be returned as base64 encoded or stored as a Cloudomation file.
    Ref: #2837hdj

Version 5 "Topfengolatsche"

2022-03-17

Topfengolatschen are a typical Viennes pastry with a moist, sweet curd filling wrapped in fine and crunchy puff pastry. A staple of Viennes coffee houses as well as bakeries, it is one of Vienna’s most common pastries. 

We are a Viennese company and we like sweets – therefore we name our releases after Viennese sweets. Topfengolatschen get their special taste through the combination of moist filling constrasting with the crunchy exterior. The Cloudomation Version Topfengolatsche comes with the powerful new “wrapper” feature, which allows you to do the same with your automations: add a layer of crunchy deliciousness to your tasty flow scripts by wrapping them in retry, notification, iteractive use or custom wrappers.

Version 4 "Punschkrapferl"

2021-08-12

Punschkrapfen or Punschkrapferl (punch cake) is a classic Austrian confection of pastry with a fine rum flavor. It is a cake filled with cake crumbs, nougat chocolate, apricot jam and then soaked with rum.

We are a Viennese company and we like sweets – therefore we name our releases after Viennese sweets. “Punchkrapferl” with their pink, glossy glazing are exceptionally pretty – just like release 4.0, which comes with a shiny new user interface.
