Renaming of variables

The variables used within Dovetail have been renamed to make a clear distinction between the various types, their role and scope.

  1. Header variable --> Message header or just Header
    A dynamic variable on message level in memory.
  2. Flow variable --> Flow property
    A static variable stored on flow level in the configuration.
  3. Global variable --> Tenant variable
    A dynamic variable stored on tentant level in the database.

Read more about these changes on the using variables in Dovetail page.

4.11.2

Unsupported

Released on: Wednesday 30 June 2021

We reverted some changes that didn't work as expected which caused some components to behave in a weird way after a restart of the back-end.

4.11.1

Unsupported

Released on: Thursday 27 May 2021

Improvement

  • #1690 We improved the memory allocation in the back-ends.

Bugfixes

  • #1675 We fixed a bug that made it impossible to search on breadcrumbId's in the transactions of an installed flow.

4.11.0

Unsupported

Released on: Wednesday 12 May 2021

New features

  • #1579 We updated Elastic Search to the latest version. This also means that the flow logging and tracing will be reset after updating to this version. In combination with the update we also improved the processes that store logging and tracing so that it will be faster and more reliable. The new version also introduces a lot of new improvements and bugfixes which will benefit the stability and reliablity of the system.
  • #1629 + #1648 We updated ActiveMQ to the latest version and at the same time we also improved the configuration for it. The improved configuration will remove some warnings that were reported in the flow logging and it allows flows to properly reconnect their queues when a connection fails. The new version also introduces a lot of new improvements and bugfixes which will benefit the stability and reliablity of the system.

Improvements

  • #1563 We made several improvements to the health checks:
    • The flow bundles reports now also detects flows that failed to install or are still installing. This will also show up in our monitoring.
    • The AMQ report now timeouts after 30 seconds, because when ActiveMQ is under heavy load it could take too long to get the information which would trigger a NGINX timeout. This ensures that the general health check always returns the other reports.
    • The Dovetail version has been added to the instance report.
  • #1636 We added a new option to the Excel to XML component that allows to disregard empty lines/sequences so that they are not included in the resulting XML.
  • #1645 We reduced the logging of some components so that the flow logging shows more useful logs. These components are:

4.10.1

Unsupported

Released on: Wednesday 24 february 2021

Improvements

  • #1490 We made some improvements to the flow versions in the Flow Designer:
    • Installed versions are fetched asynchronously instead of synchronously.
    • The versions tab now has a loading indicator for fetching the list of flow versions and for fetching the installed flow versions.
  • #1563 We made some improvements to the health reports:
    • Response status is now always 200 OK.
    • Ignore some warnings in the ActiveMQ report that are not important.
    • Issues in a report are now returned inside an array instead of in a string.
  • #1577 We added a new advanced option to the HTTP component that allows to decouple the Dovetail managed SSL certificates store. In very rare cases this could be necessary.

Bugfixes

  • #1558 We fixed the encoding error of special characters in environment variables and encrypted global variables.
  • #1606 We fixed a bug in the Throttling component and in the Retry mechanism of the HTTP Component that could cause the mixing of headers between exchanges.

4.10.0

Unsupported

Released on: Monday 1 february 2021

New features

Improvements

  • #1424, #1507, #1563 We improved the reports that are generated by the health check endpoints.
  • #1571 Files placed on the server by the File component will now survive an update of Dovetail. This is enabled after updating to this version so updating from 4.9.0 to 4.10.0 will not keep the files, but updating from 4.10.0 to 4.11.0 will keep the files.

Bugfixes

  • #1110 We now show the actual tracing setting of the installed flow in the Flow Manager and not of the last saved version.
  • #1545 We fixed a bug that caused an error in the Excel to XML component when the selected range contained empty cells.
  • #1569 We improved the calculation of the pending exchanges. In very rare cases it was not accurate and could lead to pending exchanges not being processed by the Throttling component.
  • #1413 We fixed a bug in the JSON to XML component that caused nested arrays to not be processed correctly and in turn this caused missing data in the resulting XML.
  • #1334 We fixed a bug in the XML to JSON component that caused namespace attributes to not be removed properly which generated an error.
  • #1564 We fixed the configuration for sending user creation and forget password e-mails.

4.9.0

Unsupported

Released on: Wednesday 9 december 2020

New features

Improvements

  • #915 We made several improvements to the FTP Component:
    • Add options to sort on name or data.
    • Add option to only process a certain amount of files on each poll.
    • Add option to move picked files to an error folder when there is an error.
    • Add option to upload the private key file instead of specifying a path.
    • Add option to switch between charset and binary.
    • Allow both password and private key file to be specified for SFTP authentication.
  • #1481 We added a lot of new UN/EDIFACT formats to the EDIFACT to XML component and the XML to EDIFACT Component.
  • We made some improvements to the HTTP component:
    • #1495 We added a new authentication method called Mutual SSL which allows to authenticate with API's via a password protected private certificate.
    • #1510 We added a new HTTP method Delete with body.
    • #1530 We deprecated the NTLMv2 Component and added a new authentication method for NTLM to the HTTP component.
    • #1540 We improved the working of the retry mechanism.
    • We improved the certificate validation of more advanced HTTPS URL's.

4.8.9

Unsupported

Released on: Thursday 28 October 2020

Bugfixes

  • We fixed two bugs in the Throttling component:
    • #1499 A synchronous flow with a Throttling component could not be installed.
    • #1508 The Throttling component now always needs a connection on the right to prevent mistakes which could lead to increased disk space usage caused by unprocessable messages.
  • We fixed a two bugs related to the retry mechanism of the HTTP component:
    • #1500 It didn't work properly in synchronous flows.
    • #1505 The Exclude headers didn't work together with the retry mechanism. Excluded headers were not set back after the HTTP request.
  • #1503 We fixed a bug that corrupted passwords with certain symbols in the SQL component. This caused the login to fail when it was running in a flow.
  • #1511 We fixed a bug in the File, FTP and Samba components so that the Delay and Initial delay fields are not validated when the Force inbound is set to Yes.
  • #1512 The File, FTP and Samba components in older flows will get a proper default value for the Force inbound field.
  • #1514 We fixed a styling bug that caused the tenant dropdown to be overlapped by the validations sidebar in the Flow Designer.

4.8.8

Unsupported

Released on: Thursday 15 October 2020

Improvements

  • We improved the calculation of the completed, pending and failed exchanges in the statistics for the Flow Manager. The statistics are calculated in the background and not on demand. This decreases the load time of the Flow Manager when many flows are installed. This also means that the shown statistics can be a bit "older", because they aren't calculated on demand. The statistics can still be requested on demand for each flow by going to the details of a flow.

4.8.7

Unsupported

Released on: Tuesday 29 September 2020

New features

  • #1411 We added new connection settings to the HTTP component so that the throughput can be increased/decreased depending on how many messages the endpoint can handle. The defaults of these settings are set in the server configuration so we can increase/decrease them when needed. When we do this before the deploy of this release all HTTP components will get the new defaults, but when we change it after the deploy of this release only the new and not opened HTTP components will get the new defaults.

Improvements

  • #1464 Now we show Loading... instead of undefined (#undefined) while the data of a flow is being fetched on the flow details page.
  • #1471 The navigation bar is now sticky. When you scroll down on longer page (e.g. Flow Manager, settings,...) the navigation bar will stay at the top of the screen.
  • #1220 + #1300 We improved the Throttling component. The messages are now stored in a queue in ActiveMQ instead of in memory. This reduces the memory consumption of the component when throttling many messages. Because of this change simple expressions don't work anymore in the Max requests field.

Bugfixes

  • #1463 We fixed a bug that caused warning messages from ActiveMQ to show up in the flow logging for components with exchange pattern options that are set to One way.
  • #1464 We fixed a bug that caused an error message to show up in flow details page when switching tabs while the details were still loading. This error message should only show up when flow data is not loaded correctly, but in this case all flow data still loaded correctly.

4.8.6

Unsupported

Released on: Friday 11 September 2020

New features

  • #1304 We added a pending exchanges flow statistic to the Flow Manager tables. This will show you how many messages each flow is still processing. This also replaces the high load notifications.
  • #1381 The HTTP component has a new user interface that provides better support for the user when configuring the component. It also has a new retry mechanism that can be turned on to store and retry requests that failed because the HTTP endpoint was unavailable.
  • #1443 It is now possible to increase the amount of concurrent connections that each HTTP component can open. This increases the throughput of all HTTP components that are running in flows. Please note that this has to be configured by us in the server configuration and needs a redeploy to apply it to all running HTTP components.

Improvements

  • #1380 We improved the user interface and user experience of the File component, FTP component and the Samba component. Only the settings that apply will show up now to avoid confusion. This provides better support for the user when configuring the component. The component can either be inbound or outbound based on how it is connected to other components in the flow. There is also a new option Force inbound that can be used to consume files in the middle of a flow without putting it below an Enrich component.
  • #1408 The format of the Inbound HTTP URL's has been changed for better compatability with planned changes in Dovetail. The older formats are still supported, but are not shown in the UI anymore.
  • #1410 We added automatic cleanup of stale messages in queues of ActiveMQ. Messages that stay in a queue for 24 hours will be removed.
  • #1166 The max body size of the Inbound HTTP component has been increased from 1MB to 10MB. We also made it possible to increase this by changing a configuration setting in the server configuration. Please contact us if you need a higher body size.

Bugfixes

4.8.5

Unsupported

Released on: Monday 18 May 2020

Improvements

  • #1186 We added a new Exclude headers option to the HTTP component. It allows to exclude specific headers from the exchange so they are not included in the HTTP requests.

4.0.4

Unsupported

Released on: 30 May 2018

New Features

  • #896 + #906: When HTTP or Email endpoints use custom SSL Certificates, we can now import these into our back-end without having to restart it.
  • #898: New! Oracle 12c Database connection support, for the SQL component. It means literally what it says, you can now connect to your Oracle database from within Dovetail's SQL component.

Improvements

  • #895: We saw that the tracing storages on some servers were growing a lot faster than we expected, therefore we changed the tracing values so you can choose to keep them less than one day. The new values are: 1 Hour, 4 Hours, 12 Hours, 1 Day and 1 Week.
  • #897: When creating a new Tenant it was always a bit difficult to create the first flow, it needed some refreshes before it could be found. This issue has now been resolved, and as an improvement Dovetail asks to create a first flow if none are found.

Bugfixes

  • #847: Fixed an issue where it was unable to create new users due to the email textbox being disabled.

4.0.3

Unsupported

Released on: 7 May 2018

New Features

  • GDPR: Added an Edit User Details link to your profile view where you can edit your account details, delete your account (and all associated data) and request an export of all your data that Dovetail currently has on you.
  • GDPR: Added restrictions on the session cookie Dovetail uses to remember who logged in. These restrictions make sure only your Dovetail instance can access these.
  • #812: When transforming XML to JSON we often got the question why everything is by default a string, and null values were automatically an empty array ([]). We added an option so you can specify in the source XML the type of value it contains so the component knows this when it transforms it into JSON. See the documentation for more information.
  • #842: We added a health check API to Dovetail so we can monitor it more specific and more accurate.
  • #852: We added a favicon to Dovetail.
  • #861: Looking at the new Split component a few questions were raised on the TimeoutExceptions, we decided to make the timeout for asynchronous flow configurable in the flow settings tab, and add an option to split parallel. For the parallel option read the documentation for more information.

Improvements

  • #887: Added support for Office 365 SMTP Mailbox in the Tenant configuration.
  • #891: Whenever an exception occurred in the bottom route of the Enrich component, it was not logged into the Flow logs, and no failed exchanges were displayed. Backwards compatibility-wise we decided to just log it in the flow logs, instead of letting the exchange go to the error route as it could break current installed flows.

Bugfixes

  • #800: Fixed an issue where chaining wiretaps directly after each other would cause the flow to misbehave.

4.0.2

Unsupported

Released on: 20 April 2018

Improvements

  • #820: When using the CSVToXML component we added the functionality of removing any XML forbidden characters in the CSV Headers.
  • #876: When specifying limits on production installs per tenant, you can now use -1 to set it to infinite.

Bugfixes

  • #873: Fixed an issue where the Recipient component would sometimes keep ghost connections in the background, causing the flow to misbehave.
  • #877: Fixed an issue where the Samba component would not work due to the dependency not being available for the Dovetail 4.0.1 version.

4.0.1

Unsupported

Released on: 17 April 2018

Warning

  • With this version, all flows need to be reinstalled manually. This is unavoidable because of the fact that we "reinvented" the way we gather statistics about flows (not related to data, just numbers).

New Features

  • #269: We added the functionality to copy and paste components with their config preserved. This can be between flows, but unfortunately not between tenants as that would be some sort of security risk. For more information read the documentation page.
  • #591: New! Amazon Component, this component allows users to integrate with the Amazon Marketplace. For more information read the documentation page.
  • #608: Superadmins can now specify the number of flows that a tenant is allowed to run in production. This can be configured in the Instance Manager.

Improvements

  • #329: When scrolling through your versions in your Flow Designer it is now possible to click on the environment of an installed version to go to its Flow Manager details page.
  • #677: When connecting flows through the FlowLink component you often got duplicated tracing in both flows. This issue has been resolved and you should only see the components of the current flow.
  • #689: When tracing a flow that is connected to a FlowLink component, tracing will add a link to the calling and receiving FlowLink so you can easily navigate through the tracing.
  • #741: We added the functionality to override properties in the Bol.com component with headers. This allows users to create dynamic values and pass them to Bol.com, read the documentation for more information.
  • #755: When creating a new flow, the flow group that you were currently in will now be selected by default in the popup view.
  • #775: We made several improvements in the usage of the Content-Router, which should now be more easy to use.
  • #778, #799, #845: With 4.0.0 introducing the validation message tab, we were inspired with a lot of ideas and opportunities which we all tried to implement in this version. We added information messages and warning messages to help you in designing better flows.
  • #803: We added the Tenant's creation date and last updated to the instance manager view.
  • #854: We now support more HTTP method calls in the HTTP component! We added: HEAD, PUT, DELETE and PATCH.

Bugfixes

  • #740: Fixed an issue where after registration, the redirect to the Flow Manager would not happen because of the activation token still being in the URL.

4.0.0

Unsupported

Released on: 29 March 2018

Warning

  • With this version, all flows need to be reinstalled manually. This is unavoidable because of the fact that we "reinvented" our whole back-end system and upgraded several systems for better reliability and performance!

New Features

  • #181: FTPS is now available as FTP Protocol in the FTP Component.
  • #462: New! Validations tab. In addition to our validations and pre-install checks in the Flow Designer, we now added a validations tab that shows you the exact validation message per component. Making it easier and faster to debug your flow. Check the documentation for more information.
  • #544: Dovetail now uses the new Apache Karaf 4.2.0.M2 release.
  • #682: Dovetail now uses the new Apache Camel 2.21.1 release.
  • #711, #813: New! Dovetail Tracer. Previous to this version we used an Apache Camel tracer to trace our message's through the flow. Unfortunately, we discovered that this Tracer was unreliable and deprecated in the new Apache Camel versions. The new Dovetail Tracer is 100% asynchronous and will never interfere with your main route. Important to note is that the Dovetail Tracer will always show the message going into the selected component, whereas before it showed the message leaving the selected component.

Improvements

  • #610: XPath 2 functions are now fully supported again in all XPath expressions.
  • #696: Improved the experience when clicking flow versions, by not automatically scrolling back up the versions but staying on the version you clicked.
  • #766: This version will have revised component icons.
  • #767, #768: Improved security of our routing between our local proxy and back-ends, now all using SSL.
  • #777: Expression validations are now run with the same validator which results in better and more consistent validation results.
  • #795, #786: We renamed the IftminToXml component to EdifactStandards component for a better user experience, and also added more standard Edifact transformations. This component still only works one-way, from a standard Edifact to XML.
  • #797: For security reasons we decided to not show potential stack traces in the response of the Inbound Email Component. We do however show a small message to give a clue about what might be wrong. The full stack trace remains available in the logs tab in the Flow Manager.
  • #787, #806: Due to an upgrade of the Java Mail library in Apache Camel we had to improve/update some configuration files to make the Inbound Email Component work again.
  • #810: We now removed the deprecated Soap Component in favor of our new Soap Component.
  • #813: We have made huge improvements to the Soap Component generating reliable automated tests which result in improved performances and wider support of WSDL variations.

Bugfixes

  • #286: Fixed an issue where environment variables would not show/validate correctly in the Error Route.
  • #749: Fixed an issue where the operation in the Soap Component would not be sorted alphabetically.
  • #773: Fixed multiple issues regarding importing and exporting flows.
  • #785: Fixed an issue where flows containing a "&" in their names could not be installed.
  • #833, #843: Fixed an issue where importing a flow which contained a deprecated component didn't get properly deprecated.
