- Greater flexibility in handling errors when updating information in Salesforce
- On demand creation of a system backup
- Streamlined access to diagnostic information required when working with Infogix Support'
Execute Data Flow Node
The Execute Data Flow node allows you to execute another (child) data flow from within a (parent) data flow.
You can specify the data flow to be executed together with the Run Property Set that is to be available to the other data flow. You can also specify the folder in the Directory where the results of the data flow execution are to be stored.
The node can be configured to obtain property values from input fields, including:
- The data flow to be run
- The Run Property Set to be available to the child data flow
- The folder used to store the execution results.
When the node has an input pin and there are multiple input records, the node executes the specified child data flow for each input record. If the execution of a child data flow is unsuccessful, the node continues to process subsequent records by default. You can configure exception behaviour to stop at the first failure.
The results for successful execution of the child data flow are output on the top output pin.
The results for an unsuccessful execution of the child data flow are output on the errors output pin.
The Run State for the child data flow are listed in the Directory view:
The details for the selected execute session are displayed in the Properties panel:
The Cleanup Options properties enable you to specify the actions taken on successful execution of the child data flow and for an unsuccessful execution of the child data flow. The available options are:
- Temporary Data
- Temporary Data and Logs
- Node States
- Run State
The default for a successful execution is ‘Run State’ and for an unsuccessful execution is ‘None’.
Data360 Update for Salesforce Node
The Data360 Update for Salesforce Node now provides the ‘StopAtFirstFailure’ property.
When the property is set to False the node continues processing updates and generates an error once all updates have been processed, if a transaction fails.
See the Execute Data Flow node documentation for further information.
Directory View - Copy Resource Path
The Properties panel in the Directory view now displays the path to the currently selected asset (e.g. data flow, execute session):
You can click on the Copy button to copy the path to the clipboard. This can be useful when working with the Execute Data Flow node to reference more than one data flow.
Download Node Logs
When a node does not run successfully the Errors panel now displays links to the node log and the input/output data of the node:
This allows you to easily gather together information that may be useful when working with Support to resolve operational issues.
Clicking on the View node log link displays details of the node’s status and data:
Clicking on the Download button presents options for downloading a zip archive file containing diagnostic information and/or the data flow (.lna) file that can be opened in archive management tool e.g. 7Zip:
Links to the node’s input / output data are displayed when the View data button is clicked:
Backup on Demand
Administrators can now create a backup of their system on demand.
The version of Tomcat that is deployed by the software installer has been updated to v.9.0.34.
The Background category of errors has been renamed to Other.
The 3.6.X Long Term Support release track will be the last that will support RedHat Enterprise Linux 6.X 64-bit. In future releases, only RedHat Enterprise Linux 7.X 64-bit, or later, will be supported.
