In previous release we introduced concept of CloverDX Libraries – self-contained archives that allow you to package solutions and share them with others more effectively than before. In CloverDX 5.15 we continued to improve this functionality, introducing library repositories. Each repository allows you to store libraries in single location. Server can then pull libraries from configured repositories automatically whenever you deploy new project with a library dependency thus saving you from tedious dependency management.
Due to popular demand, this version bundles native support for Dropbox and HubSpot OAuth2 providers, making custom solutions using their APIs in HTTPConnector work more seamlessly.
And as usual, new release comes with many smaller updates security fixes to help you build safer and more reliable solutions in CloverDX.
Please note, application servers JBoss EAP 7.2, IBM WebSphere 9 and Oracle WebLogic 12cR2 will be removed from list of supported platforms since December 2022 release. Releases prior December 2022 will not be affected by this change. For more details, check our knowledge base article.
Besides small updates, like ability to show custom icons in graph editor’s Palette, CloverDX 5.15.0 focuses on usability, deployment automation and simplified sharing of packaged solutions.
It is now possible to register Library repositories in CloverDX Server. Repositories can be hosted via any protocol supported by File Event Listener (i.e., FTP, SFTP, AWS S3, Samba and Azure Blob Storage). They allow to leverage both public and proprietary package solutions to boost development efficiency and deployment automation.
Each CloverDX project now stores information about its dependencies. When you deploy such project on CloverDX Server, it will check registered repositories for project’s dependencies and install missing ones automatically.
Based on feedback from our customers we are introducing two additional OAuth2 providers – Dropbox and HubSpot which are now ready to be used in HTTPConnector component to call their APIs.
When installing fresh CloverDX server, you’ll find more granular security groups, designed to fit common organization’s teams and their responsibilities. They now scale from End Users through DevOps and Support to System Administration teams. If you upgrade, your current settings will stay unaffected.
In case you’d like to add these security group settings into an existing deployment, have a look at the our article New security groups in CloverDX where you can download exported group configuration.
Continued effort to support OAuth2 protocol with mailing, capability was added to CloverDX Server's configuration and added support of Google in addition to Microsoft provider.
The Profiler Console was removed from all offerings and installers and can no longer be deployed alongside CloverDX 5.15.
This also means that it is no longer possible to run cpj (CloverDX Profiler Job) files in CloverDX Server or Designer. It is possible to open them in Designer and copy settings into ProfilerProbe graph component so that you can collect same statistics with more flexibility graphs allow, compared to Profiler jobs.
Functionality of ProfilerProbe component was not affected except for its ability to persist results. ProfilerProbe output can now only be sent over an edge to post-process and/or be stored as needed in any data sink supported by CloverDX. It is no longer possible to store the results in Profiler Console's database as it was removed from CloverDX. Existing database stays unaffected by an upgrade.
Oracle 21c Database support
With Oracle 18c database nearing its end of support, Oracle 21c is now supported backend database for CloverDX Server.
MongoDB Driver updated to v4.6.0
New driver allows CloverDX to connect to more up-to-date instances of MongoDB which was not possible with the one used in previous releases.
InfobrightBulkWriter component deprecated
Support for Infobright DB was dropped without replacement.
