SnapLogic Product Team

The first UAT update of SnapLogic Enterprise Integration Cloud Spring 2018 was completed on 27/April/18. The following items were updated since the initial UAT push.

Platform Updates

  • Fixed an issue where a child pipeline execution on the current node looks for dependencies in the parent pipeline’s project instead of the child pipeline’s project.
  • Fixed an issue with task update API that causes the task to enable after an update.
  • Added details to the pipeline failure notification email.
  • Fixed an error condition handling when creating API proxy in Apigee.
  • Fixed an issue when passing encrypted properties using the Metadata Snaps.
  • Fixed an issue that causes CSV formatting to fail with unicode delimiter character.

Snap Updates

  • Adobe Cloud Platform: Dataset suggestion now displays all datasets and not just the first 20.
  • Box: Fixed an issue wherein the Box Read Snap enters an infinite loop situation for connection errors.
  • Confluent Kafka: Fixed an issue with the Confluent Kafka Consumer Snap that did not respect the acknowledgement timeout window on a per message basis.
  • Hadoop: Fixed an issue with the HDFS and Parquet Snaps that presume a default port value of 8020, preventing directory and file suggestions for nameservice-enabled nodes.
  • JDBC: Updated the Hikari connection pool management library version. This has resulted in a breaking change for JDBC3 drivers. The newer version requires databases to be able to support a validation query of “SELECT 1;” or have the driver itself implement a custom validation method. Some older JDBC3 drivers may not have such an implementation, meaning those drivers configured in a JDBC Account may no longer validate if the “Database name” setting has the value of “Auto-detect.” For example, DB2-based JDBC Accounts must explicitly choose “DB2” from the “Database name” setting. JDBC4 drivers are not affected by this change.
  • Oracle: Fixed a regression in the Oracle Bulk Load Snap due to null values resulting in records being rejected.
  • RabbitMQ: Fixed an issue with the RabbitMQ Consumer Snap that did not output the “deliveryTag” and “redelivered” fields for use when re-consuming an unacknowledged/rejected message.

UI Update

  • Fixed an issue wherein pipelines did not print.

The final update of the May 2018 release (4.13) of the SnapLogic Enterprise Integration Cloud will be deployed on the UAT environment ont Friday May 4th 11am PDT. Release notes are here.

PLEASE NOTE: In order to ensure all customers have the opportunity to test with the new version, we will be upgrading all customer UAT orgs to the new 4.13 release when we do the update to UAT this week. The update will force the update of all Snaplexes (not already updated) to the new 4.13 release, along with the corresponding Snap updates. Customers will still have the ability to roll back and forward as previously described for the next week, until the production deployment takes place on May 12th. At that point, UAT will be fixed on the new release.

If any customers do not want this update to happen in their UAT org, for instance if you are in the middle of testing plan, please contact your SnapLogic TAM or our support team so we can make the necessary accommodations.

New Snap Packs will only be visible when all Snaplexes in an org are updated to the new version. See the instructions here.

The release to production is currently scheduled for deployment on May 12, 2018 at 9:00 PM PT / May 13 at 5:00 AM GMT.
