Component Enhancements Link
User Management To avoid that invalid email addresses are used for sending information to end users, a blacklisting mechanism has been introduced in RunMyProcess. This ensures that a process that uses a blacklisted email address is aborted with a corresponding error message.
If the default mail provider (AWS) is used in an application, invalid email addresses are automatically detected and put on the blacklist. Independent of the email provider that is used, the administrator has the option of manually adding email addresses to the blacklist. The addresses must be registered for his account. An email address that is not considered as invalid any longer can also be removed from the blacklist by the administrator.

The DigitalSuite preview version of the User Management module provides access to the email blacklist. Please access the DigitalSuite module through existing modules (Advanced IDE or User Management).

The API call retrieves, for example, the instance ID, the date/time when a process instance was deleted, the user who deleted it, and the reason for the deletion. Contact your RunMyProcess Support for detailed API information.
Project To avoid that a project resource is overwritten by a more recent version, the user working on a resource is instantly informed when another user has modified and saved this resource. The user is prompted to decide whether to reload the resource with the changes made by the other user or save the changes just implemented, thus overwriting the changes of the other user.
German Language Support For German end users, the User Management and the My Settings application have been localized to German. The email communication on administration issues is also available in German now.
In addition, new users get a German End User License Agreement that they must accept before they can start using RunMyProcess.

User API Deactive an already deactivated user using the following API call:
- HTTP method: PUT
- URL: /config/{customer_id}/user/{user_id}
- Content body (part):<category term="status" label="DEACTIVATE"/>
The user was deleted. Now the user will only be updated.
N.B: If the Custom Header in the Advanced parameters section of the HTTP connector contains "RMPData-version=v1_0" or ""RMPData-version=v1_1", the current behavior remains: deactivating a user twice deletes the user
Delegation A user with the Administrator profile updates a Manual task as a delegate. The History widget did not display delegate "on behalf of" delegator for the update.
Deactivate the current user of a process instance (P_user) waiting for the execution of a Manual task scheduled by a timer. When the timer was triggered, the process instance might have failed on the next task (the P_user user was deactivated). Now, the P_user is replaced by a delegate in case a delegate has been defined.
RMPApplication Call the RMPApplication.getInvalidFields() funtion on the screen loaded after a "Load next screen" action. The function always returned false even if all fields were valid.

Scripted Role New computation mechanism - Scripts are now computed in batch
In order to improve the performance of scripted roles, several architecture changes have been made:
- Only impacted scripted roles (because of a script change or user metadata / preference / settings update) are now computed.
- Computation method switches from on-demand calculation to batch calculation. Since user metadata, preference or settings are usually updated in bulk, it is more efficient to compute scripted roles once batch user updates are completed.

N.B: When a script is computed, all the users matching the script become part of the role.
Scripted role
Mail / Notification task It is now possible to send emails (and/or push notifications if using RunMyApp) to:

Delegation All the delegated tasks are now delegated. Previously, delegation was available only in certain situations:
- Direct assignation to a specific user
- Runtime or static lane containing only one user
Delegation
It is now possible to create multiple global delegations or multiple delegations on the same project (with the same or different representatives), provided that the time periods do not overlap
The representative inherits the delegator's access rights at project level (apart for Process instances). The P_user remains the user that completes the actions (in our case, the representative) and a new variable "P_user.delegators" will be filled with all the possible delegators for that representative
Delegations are automatically activated by the server:
- Delegations starting in the past or now are automatically activated after creation.
- Delegations starting in the future are pending after creation and will be automatically activated by the server on the start date
If the delegator is a deactivated user, the process will keep running - the representative will have the same rights as the deactivated user
New option "do not delegate" for Email & Push notification tasks (Unchecked by default).
If the "do not delegate" option is unchecked, emails and push notifications will be received by the representative as well as the delegator.
It is necessary to uncheck the "Do not delegate" option for existing processes

2016-08-19 - Mongo v2 Addon Connectors Library

We have cleaned and refactored completely our library of connectors. Our goal was to provide connectors and providers that were fully documented for developers to be able to integrate them in their process or composite APIs as quickly and simply as possible. We have also removed APIs that were deprecated - usually because the authentication protocol was changed by third-parties to OAuth2. Last but not least we have released Office365 connectors. The connectors library can be accessed from its dedicated view in the IDE.

  • Provider: A new temporary email provider based on Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES) is now set up on every RunMyProcess account. It tolerates many file extensions. Previous temporary email provider based on OVH has been migrated to this new one.
  • User: You can now deactivate a user without deleting it (which was causing issue on process launched by this deleted user).
  • Process and web interface report: Whether you are in back office interface (https://portal.runmyprocess.com/) or in a web interface using report widget, export button ("Your default export (...)") will only export as a csv what you see in current display (or 20 lines maximum). So as to have a full export (even if it contains more than a 1000 lines : limitation of previous version), you must click on export button ("Custom export") and check box "Export all, and receive data by e-mail". You will then receive an email with your full report in csv. If you don't receive any email, please check your "Spam" inbox.
  • Web interface: You can now dynamically create new widgets in an open web interface thanks to new javascript functions.
  • Process: You can now create a process that will be exposed as a synchronous web service. We call it Composite API. It is much more faster than a process listener since it is completely executed in memory with no persistence : you won't find any trace in process report of launched composite APIs. Moreover you can choose result content and state of response of web service call thanks to a new freemarker function (set_status).
  • Developer: You can now display js console for a web interface (launch screen or manual task screen) by adding an extension to the url (&P_attributes=tester) to display js console in LIVE mode or &P_attributes=notester to remove js console in TEST mode; you can also edit .xsl or .ftl files directly within RunMyProcess and at least you don't have to empty your cache after a major release of RunMyProcess.
  • Others: More CSS classes on object, new state in history widget when a timer expired on a manual task: "cancelled" has been replace by "Expired", web interface loading speed enhancement.

All tasks already assigned to this user and all new tasks can be then performed by the delegate one (see new filter in web interface report: Delegated to). Moreover, in a process, you can decide that a given task won't be delegated even if a delegation has been activated.
  • Process execution: When a process fails on a email task or a web service task for technical reasons (time out, SMTP connexion failure, etc.), the process will automatically retry the task every minute for 10 minutes maximum.
