WorkflowGen 7.15.6

Configuration Panel

  • Bug (#2853): Fixed a regression issue where the authentication mode would not save and change to the WorkflowGen mode when the system.webServer node was missing in the configuration node in the web.config.

Database

  • Change (#2795): Oracle: Updated the Text datatype data and activity parameter columns to support Extended Data Types for longer values.

    Requirements

    • Oracle Database 12c
    • The MAX_STRING_SIZE database parameter must be set to EXTENDED

    Notes

    • The Oracle database WFACTIVITY_PARAM.VALUE_TEXT and WFDATASET_VALUE.VALUE_TEXT table columns’ datatype has been changed from NVARCHAR2(4000) to NVARCHAR2(16383).
      • By default, it is set to NVARCHAR2(16383) to support the AL16UTF16 national character set.
      • For the AL32UTF8 and UTF8 national character sets, you can change the datatype to NVARCHAR2(32767).
    • The Oracle server must meet the above requirements before running the Update_WFG-V7-15-6.sql database upgrade script or creating a new database.
    • If your Oracle server does not meet the requirements then you can skip the Update_WFG-V7-15-6.sql database upgrade script and continue to use the NVARCHAR2(4000) datatype for those columns.
    • When upgrading, a full backup of your Oracle WorkflowGen database is highly recommended before launching the database update script.

Notes

  • All of the Node.js modules (GraphQL v2.0.4, Webhooks v4.0.1, Auth v1.0.3, and SCIM v1.0.2) now require Node.js version 10.15.3 LTS.

  • 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 2016 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 Server 2012 or Oracle 12c, we highly recommend upgrading to MS SQL Server 2017 or 2019 for the best performance.
