New User Interface: Desktop Online
Issue number(s): XE-9715
In this release we are introducing a brand-new user interface. From this point, this new interface will be known as Desktop Online. Our new Desktop Online user interface is accessible using a web browser and offers same functionalities as Desktop Client (Desktop) along with some exclusive functionality, like Archive Inspector (3.1).
The Desktop Online user interface will bring a new, modern look and feel to Usage Engine and will have the advantage of not requiring a local client installation, just take your pick of browser from Microsoft Edge, Chrome or Firefox. Another key benefit of this new interface is that it will be fully accessible for users using screen readers or keyboard navigation. This first release is a big step forward to comply with accessibility requirements according to WCAG 2.1 AA, with full adherence to the standard coming in a subsequent release.
This Desktop Online user interface is undergoing heavy development and will continue to be developed bringing new functionality to the interface in future releases. While the Desktop Online user interface is being developed,the Desktop Client and its web based version, Web Desktop will continue to be available for use and will function in the same way as in the previous versions. See Desktop Online User Interface (3.1) for more information.
Issue number(s): XE-2308
In this release there is a new feature Archive inspector available that enables you to locate files in the archive.
Archive Inspector is exclusively available in Desktop Online User Interface.
Conditional Trace has been rewritten to track all UDRs in a workflow that match the applied filter criteria, for instance if all UDRs originating from a particular set of users need to be monitored as they flow through the system.
The new versions is designed to provide plug-and-play interoperability with Jaeger, a state-of-the-art trace logging system. This provides complete trace logs and a rich set of filtering and troubleshooting tools.
There are now a Websocket Server and a Websocket Client agent available.
WebSocket is a protocol that enables bidirectional communication over a single TCP connection. The WebSocket protocol makes it easier to send real-time data to and from the server by enabling content to be sent to the client without the client having to make a request.
In the agent’s configuration dialogs you can select if you want to use TLS encryption or not.
There are four different UDR types that are specific for the Websocket agents:
NewConnection – which is routed into the workflow when receiving a handshake request.
CloseConnection – which is routed into the workflow when receiving a closing handshake request, or sent from the workflow in order to close an existing connection.
BinaryMessage – which is used for exchanging data in binary format between the server and client.
TextMessage – which is used for exchanging data in text format between the server and client.
The agents are compliant with the WebSocket protocol according to specification RFC 6455.
Usage Engine now supports deployment in AWS Graviton processors which is designed to deliver best price performance when running in Amazon EC2.
