The following Release Notes are valid only for region Europe 2.

Operator Cockpit

What's new?

  • Update of Cloud Foundry applications without deprovisioning of customers. 

  • Multi selection of notifications for archiving.

Known Issues

  • Limitations for update of Clooud Foundry applications:

    • The service instance names for each service should be same in the current and new version of the application. If the service instance names are different in the new version and the existing version of an application, then the existing service instances will not be readily available even after zero-downtime version upgrade.

    • During manual deployment of a new version of an application, do not use the same component names as available in the existing version. This might create name conflicts and usability issues. In order to avoid such conflicts, while deploying a new version of an application, append green at the end of the component name.

    • If the difference in number of endpoints between the current and new version of an application is too large, then you might get a "Service unavailable" error message. In such scenarios, you need to follow the version upgrade with downtime. To know more about the procedure to upgrade an application with downtime, refer "Upgrade a CF application (with downtime)".

  • For every individual (single) application, one Cloud Foundry space must be deployed.

  • After modifying the authorization of a user via the Operator Cockpit user interface, the change is not immediately visible. The user has to close the browser and login again.

  • After deployment of an app, there is a security feature in place validating if the app is known to MindSphere or the app has somehow been modified. Sometimes issues occur with regards to name changes or deploying from various folders. The apps need to be deployed as they are assigned from the developer.

Currently not available in Europe 2:

  • Background processing without user interaction: As an operator you can now provision an application that uses app credentials for background processing without user interaction to IoT Value Plan customers.

  •  Zero downtime upgrade for self hosted applications:

    •  You can now upgrade your already registered self hosted application without a downtime for your customers.

  • User Experience improvements:

    • Applications that use "Technical Token Manager" are labeled.

    • Timestamp in "Versions" has the same format like all other functions in Operator Cockpit.

    • A new filter in the tab "Provisioning" enables you to browse for specific customers.

    • If you provision an application that uses "Technical Token Manager API" the e-mail that requires the acceptance will be sent to all TenantAdmins of the IoT Value Plan.
