New Features and Enhancements

Introducing Data Purge Policy in APPSeCONNECT - For Cloud Storage Optimization

Data Purge Policy is a vital feature for APPSeCONNECT which will give full governance to the users for maintaining storage of runtime data, viz. transactional logs, process log for a defined time interval.

This will optimize the better utilization of resources in your environment, thereby allowing lesser footprints on the environment you maintain as well as ours. Thus the local, as well as cloud storage of APPSeCONNECT Agent is optimized for better resource utilization

Key features that optimizes storage

  • Data retention policy automatically removes old data which are more than 15 days old, helping the user to concentrate only on newer application transactions.

  • This will reduce overall data usage and considerably improve performance.

  • In On-Premise Agent, data compression technique will allow logs to be even smaller in size.

  • Daily notification system is available to indicate Clean up job execution. The notification can be viewed from Feeds section of APPSeCONNECT Portal.

Presenting APPSeCONNECT Evaluation Report – For Failed Integration Summary

APPSeCONNECT users will get hourly report in the form of email notifications which is configurable by the user.

  • Report is generated only for failed items synchronizations.

  • Report is generated on daily data sync process which is triggered aided with a predefined rule.

  • Report captures detailed failure or error details for each entry.

Enhanced Morning Report - For Capturing the Sync Activities Summary (both On Premise & Cloud)

Morning Report updates users about the data synchronization status for each connection, on daily basis. There are two major enhancements that have been implemented in Morning Report.

  • With this Release, the report has been implemented in APPSeCONNECT Rule engine, so that rule will get triggered on default scheduled time for all organization user.

  • The existing report have been enhanced with inclusion of an additional column for tracking data that have been resynced successfully and are older than 24 hours.

Enhanced Workflow Feature in APPSeCONNECT – For smooth data sync

Users of APPSeCONNECT will get enhanced workflow which makes it more robust and active.

Key Speciality of enhanced workflows are:

  • Resuming Workflow - The concept of resuming workflow comes into play when a workflow execution (executed through Autosync) is stopped midway because of the system dependability. The user does not need to restart the workflow instead the workflow would resume from the node it stopped.

  • Enhanced Migration tool for migrating Resumable Workflow Tables.

  • Notification Message in Workflow page - A pop-up message in the Workflow page, when there is no application added or any connection configured in the organisation to follow the pre-required steps.

  • Implementing execution of APPSeCONNECT Workflow using Cloud Agent

  • User of APPSeCONNECT would now be able to Delete and Purge, all the data from the Cloud Agent Resync Bucket.

Enhanced View of Tracking data - For workflow/touchpoint execution

  • Users of APPSeCONNECT would now be able to implement the Tracking Data feature in both Cloud & OP Agent
  • to track specific attributes related to the sync process.

  • Tracking Data user interface has gone robust with the new ADD and DELETE ALL button for easy usability of this feature.

Autosync Scheduling for failed data in Resync Bucket in Cloud Agent

APPSeCONNECT users will now be able to attempt the Resync of the failed data automatically through Autosync mechanism.

  • Autosync of Resync will be implemented in both the agents.

  • Each failed data would only get 4 attempts - 1 for a normal try & 3 for resync.

Revamped Environment Panel – For easy management

APPSeCONNECT users can now view and manage advanced Environment Services and Processes by themselves.

  • Users can now diagnose details whenever an event gets triggered, services get scheduled, inter-process communication status etc.

  • The Advanced Environment panel in the portal will now display the - Processor details, Properties, Plugins & Settings option.

Generic REST adapter for organisation specific applications

APPSeCONNECT generic REST adapters can integrate any REST based applications that are specific to an organisation. Users can create custom connectors for any REST based data sources or applications endpoints.

You need to validate the REST adapter using the applications credentials for the sync process after deploying the connectors.

APPSeCONNECT Generic REST Adapter supports the following authentication types:

  • Basic Authentication – Basic Authentication uses the base-64 encoding method for authorizing the credential.

  • OAuth 2.0 - Oauth 2.0 authorizes a token for accessing user application.

  1. License key-based authentication for APPSeCONNECT Agent – For enhanced Security.
