MindAccess Developer Plan Subscribers and MindAccess Operator Plan Subscribers

Analytics Services

What's new?

  • Signal Spectrum Analysis API is now part of the Analytics Services offering. It can be used to detect peaks arising in audio signal snippets uploaded to MindSphere. The functionality is provided in two separate APIs:

    • one for creating a FFT spectrum out of small audio files,

    • a second one for detecting both positive or negative spikes that exceed a defined threshold.

    This can be used to detect machine failure, alert on dangerous vibrations or observe the operation status of a device.

Cloud Foundry

What's new?

  • General stability and security enhancements of all Cloud Foundry components.

  • Added a mechanism to detect wether the persistent or ephemeral disk limit for a Backing Service instance has been reached.

  • Update of the buildpacks:



















Fixed issues

  • Fixed a problem that resulted in sporadic DNS request timeouts.

  • Fixed a problem that enabled app_ssh by default. Now app_ssh is always disabled by default

  • Fixed a problem that prevented the upgrade from single to clustered Backing Service instances, for all services beside Logme, MongoDB 3.2, PostgreSQL 9.4

Known issues

  • Upgrading single Logme, MongoDB 3.2 and PostgreSQL 9.4 Backing Services instances to clustered instances is not possible.

Additional Information

  • Cloud Foundry allows to create more Backing Services instances than included in the individual plans. A fix for this behavior is going to be implemented with the next release.

Identity and Access Management

What's new?

Updated new link to Webkey self- service in the invitation E-Mail when clicking on "Manage Account".

Known issues

  • In the current version the logout with Internet Explorer 11 might not work. In this case please close the browser directly.

  • After modifying the authorization of an user via Identity Management Service, the change is not immediately visible. The user must then close the browser and login again.

IoT and Storage Services: File Service

What's new?

Known issues

  • For security reasons a strict timeout is enforced. Currently this leads to the situation that the size of a file which can be uploaded/ downloaded depends on the network bandwidth at client side.

  • When uploading files to the File Service, a file name must not contain blank spaces. Blank spaces in the file name will prevent the file form being stored.

  • After deleting an asset, associated files might still be accessible for up to 30 minutes as this data is deleted asynchronously.

IoT and Storage Services: Time Series Service

What's new?

  • Time Series Services have been extended to support high frequent simulation data to be stored in MindSphere. New service endpoints can be used by developers to ingest and digest this kind of data. For further information, please visit the HowTo section available on https://developer.mindsphere.io .

Known issues

  • The maximum payload size of a message sent to Time Series Service as part of a PUT request cannot exceed 1 MB.

  • The service will never return more than 2000 records in a response.

  • When creating or updating aspects on an asset, it might take some time (up to 30 minutes) until this aspect or respective changes are available on the Time Series Service. The service returns a 404 (Not Found) as long as the changes are not completely propagated.

  • After deleting an asset, respective time series data might still be accessible for up to 30 minutes as this data is deleted asynchronously.

Usage Transparency Service

Known issues

  • All usages generated within a Cloud Foundry Environment cannot be collected by Usage Transparency Services. All usages from and to a Cloud Foundry Environment e.g. requests to APIs still will be collected.
