  • RPI SD02709922, Items are not being synced when switching to bi-directional. The issue comes about when there are 2 type mappings for the same types.
  • RPI 646531 Customer sees error: "Content cannot contain Html tags." when trying to save a connection.
  • RPI 646277 to property evaluate IsModified in calculated values

Server Updates

  • When expanding or collapsing the user map tree, do not select the first node in the tree.
  • Clicking save on a empty user map is not displaying the appropriate message.
  • Relationship change to "Relate to All types" is not detected. Save button was not enabled after applying "Relate to All types".
  • Cannot save changes to user maps.
  • When there are connections setup that have 2 or more of the same type on either master or target sides, the audit will only show hits for the first type found.
  • User is able to submit a new data source with leading and trailing spaces in the name. This will cause an error from the server: "Content Cannot contain HTML Tags".
  • Removed edit button for Type Mappings using Common Projects. Editing the Type Mappings for Common Projects is not supported.
  • Creating a connection with data sources that are used in a running connection cause a 500 error.
  • The UI will show 'Inherit' instead of the correct direction arrow image, when creating a new connection. The wizard will show the default direction for the last row selected in the connection grid, when creating a new connection.
  • When a import fails. Add to failure message: See server logs for detailed error information. Always return a JSON object that contains detailed error information. Display the error information to the user, if an error occurs on the server.
  • DateTime comparison no longer uses milliseconds (improving comparison between products that may or may not have milliseconds)
  • Ensure empty string and null are handled similarly
  • add support for retrieving the label of an enum in a calculatedValue by specifying .label as the suffix of the enum property

  • RPI 1121020, SD02749712, Added funcionality to include Date syncCriteria into item query strings. Assumed the most common case is to add "creation-time" to the query which is a Date. This will allow us to e.g. only sync items with creation-time > 2020-01-01. This will greatly improve performance at some customers. Use label "Creation Date" instead of "Creation Time". Also include syncCriteria terms in the getChangedIdsSince method. Lastly, updated pageSize to 1000 to improve performance.

  • Fixed caching problem related to attachments.
  • fixed authentication session issue
  • ALM 500 server error.
  • Fixed 401 errors accessing ALM/QC

    • A work around for this problem is to perform the following steps:
      • Go to C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\Connect\WebServer\bin
      • Copy tomcat8w.exe as ConnectWebServerw.exe
      • Launch ConnectWebServerw.exe (alternatively, start tomcat8w //ES/ConnectWebServer)
      • Go to the "Java" tab
      • In the "Java Options" append to the end argument list the following, every statement should be on a new line: -Dfile.encoding=UTF8

  • Changed message when timeout occurs in ui from 'SERVER NOT RUNNING' message to 'SERVER NOT RESPONDING' (server is running, but a timeout occurred)
  • When user changes configuration in connection from common projects to specific projects and has synced, wasn't clear what the user needed to do. Changed message with additional details.
  • Updated maintenance tool to detect additional problem cases (and ability to fix)
  • When changing data source types after the data source was create, the changes weren't kept
  • When using Calculated value field values like 'My->Other->something' the product can throw an error if the 'Other' item doesn't exist. Accounted for cases where these items are not available.
  • Don't throw exception if configured to not allow adds, generate a useful message instead.
