WorkflowGen 7.12.0


#1

Important known issues

  • We have recently identified some regression bugs (#1895, #1907, #1950 and #2073) in this release that could affect the normal execution of workflow actions and the directory synchronization service with the Active Directory and LDAP connectors when the directory uses a login configured with AES (FIPS compliant) or Version 5 (Legacy) password management mode with an Encryption key.

    These known issues have already been fixed in the latest release.

    If you have already upgraded your WorkflowGen to version 7.12.0 or planning to upgrade a previous version then we recommend installing version 7.14.1

General

  • Feature (#1850, #1851): Synchronize users in a self-provisioning directory for the Auth0 provider.

  • Feature (#1865): Synchronize virtual groups in a self-provisioning directory for the Auth0 provider.

Portal

  • Enhancement / Performance (#1569): Download speed and memory optimization for large file process data when using the database storage mode.

Administration

  • Feature (#1849): Added new self-provisioning directory connector type with user fields mapping for the user self-provisioning feature (#1721).

  • Bug (#1540): Fixed some delegation management security rules.

Workflow engine

  • Change (#34): Removed legacy dependency to FDF Toolkit DLLs (used in legacy PDF forms).

  • Bug (#1489): Fixed an issue where a macro name contained in a TEXT data used as a IN action parameter would not be evaluated at runtime.

Database

  • Change (#1775): Replaced the deprecated ntext and image SQL Server datatypes with nvarchar (max) and varbinary (max) respectively for WorkflowGen database hosted on SQL Server.

    Note: You must run the Databases\MsSQLServer\Update_WFG-V7-12-0.sql upgrade script if your WorkflowGen is hosted on SQL Server.

  • Enhancement (#1808): Added new canReadComments and canWriteComments fields to the request type.

  • Bug (#1820): Fixed a connection issue where the updateRequestDataset method would try to download an input file from a public URL that uses the TLS 1.2 security protocol.

  • Bug (#1840): Fixed a syntax issue in a generated action parameter’s FileValue URL.

  • Bug (#1842): Removed the invalid userId and onBehalfOf fields from the FileValue type.

Auth v1.0.0-beta.5

  • Version update to 1.0.0-beta.5

  • Feature (#1721, #1846, 1847): Added user self-provisioning for the Auth0 provider.

  • Feature (#1861): OpenID Connect: Added automatic session refresh before the expiration time.

SCIM v1.0.0-beta.2

  • Version update to 1.0.0-beta.2

Notes

  • All of the Node.js modules (GraphQL v1.0.0-beta.7, Webhooks v3.3.0, Auth v1.0.0-beta.5, and SCIM v1.0.0-beta.2) now require Node.js version 8.11.3.

  • Running the npm install --production command is required on each of the modules (\wfgen\graphql, \wfgen\hooks, \wfgen\auth, and \wfgen\scim) after the upgrade.

Reminders

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 is no longer supported as of WorkflowGen version 7.11.0. We recommend migrating to Windows Server 2012 or later.

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 is no longer supported as of WorkflowGen version 7.10.0. While SQL Server 2008 is still compatible with WorkflowGen, support for any performance issues or bugs resulting from using SQL Server 2008 will no longer be provided.

    For clients currently hosting WorkflowGen on a database server older than MS SQL 2012 or Oracle 12c, we highly recommend upgrading to MS SQL server 2016/2017 or Oracle 12c for the best performance and to support JSON native data fields that will used in future WorkflowGen releases.
