Solution Manager

✳️ OPCON-15118: Solution Manager now allows users to configure notifications in OpCon for machines, schedules and jobs, when any actionable change occurs to them. Notification triggers belong to a group, but in the new notification system, groups are flat structures instead of hierarchical ones like Enterprise Manager used to have. So, each notification trigger belongs to a single root group. Any pre-defined hierarchical groups will stay as they are, but only the lowest level of the group is visible in Solution Manager. Instead, users can define a 'Category' for each trigger as a way to tag them for a purpose. A trigger can have multiple categories assigned. The new system makes it easy to understand and categorize triggers. NOTE: A bug in the latest release (21.6) may cause Notification Manager to not work for customers whose upgrade or install path had included version 21.4. Notification Manager does work for new installs or upgrades from other versions. If you are experiencing issues with Notification Manager, please upgrade to 21.8 when available.

✳️ OPCON-15117: Solution Manager now allows users to define and configure escalation rules for different notification triggers. Users can create and associate the rules to each trigger, and also to a group of users who will receive the escalation based on the defined rules provided they have an email address defined. The escalation manager allows users to be associated to the rules and notification manager allows them to be associated with the triggers.

✳️ OPCON-15100: Solution Manager now allows a user to manage batch users via the Library. You may add, edit and delete batch users and you can view cross references for them.

OPCON-17029: Fixed a sorting error with calendars screen when there are two or more pages.

ImpEx2 Web Service

OPCON-16749: Fixed an issue in ImpEx2 service where an SAP job import and deploy caused problem with certain header types in the XML request to the SAP system. The XML headers are now cleared before the request is made.

OpCon 21.5.0

2022 May


OPCON-16513: Fixed an issue with the database migration during a minor upgrade where if the Windows Domain user running the upgrade did not have the correct permissions to the database, the migration failed. The installer should have used the SQL user from the database config file (DAT file) for the migration, instead.


OPCON-16687: Fixed an issue in OpCon API where concurrent access to its authentication end point sometimes caused issues with the token management and the API stopped running.

OPCON-16793: Fixed an issue in the OpCon API where fetching calendars and frequencies (GET) required the user to have 'maintain' privileges to those resources, when they are only needed to add/update/delete them.

✳️ OPCON-16604: The OpCon API now allows users to fetch basic job details from master, without any dependencies, events, etc. It also allows the user to fetch cross references to these jobs from other master jobs.

✳️ OPCON-16613: The OpCon API now allows maintaining notification escalation groups. A user can call the API to fetch, create, edit and delete escalation groups with either OpCon users and/or global properties that contain the user name. API documentation has more details (api/escalationGroups).

✳️ OPCON-16656: The OpCon API now allows users to edit a null job in master with only basic details, without any dependencies, events, etc.

✳️ OPCON-16855: The OpCon API now allows users to view cross references to master jobs from other master jobs (jobs that depend on this job).

Solution Manager

OPCON-16012: Fixed a performance issue in Solution Manager PERT view of the Operations page, where the request timed out in some instances resulting in the PERT view not being displayed.

OPCON-15595: Fixed an issue in Solution Manager where a dependency on a named instance schedule's job from a different named instance, did not show the instance name as part of the schedule name built in daily in the job dependencies section.

✳️ OPCON-15120: Solution Manager now allows users to maintain scripts. Users can add, edit, copy and delete scripts and their types and runners. They can view cross references for the script, manage their versions, and deploy specific versions to defined jobs.

✳️ OPCON-16126: Solution Manager now allows users to maintain machines. From the agents page, a user can select machines and edit them, add new machines, copy settings to new a machine and check the cross references for them.

ImpEx2 Web Service

OPCON-16321: Fixed an issue in ImpEx2 where external job dependencies from named instance schedule to regular schedule were not extracted correctly.

You can edit an existing frequency to update its settings, associate a calendar to it, and also see the resulting forecast for it. NOTE: The forecast in the frequency manager does not account for any schedule calendar holidays, so it may be different from the actual days on which the schedule or job will be build as there are additional holiday calendars that are considered when building a schedule.

✳️ OPCON-15099: Solution Manager now allows management of Departments. Users can add, edit, copy and delete departments. They can view any references for a selected department to master/daily jobs and/or roles that have a function privilege defined on that department.

ImpEx2 Web Service

✳️ OPCON-14859: Updated ImpEx2 service (used by Deploy) to include SQL agent job enhancements - using Win Auth for package execution (DTExec) and running Integration Services Server packages - as part of the deployment to OpCon environments.

OPCON-15461: Fixed an issue where ImpEx2 did not start up if the database was configured to force encrypted connections.

OPCON-15450: Fixed an issue in ImpEx2 where deploying a schedule with a frequency having the same name but different case in the name deployed the schedule to target with some missing properties and missing job level frequencies.

OPCON-15436: Fixed an error with deployment when calendars associated with the schedule or package to be deployed does not exist in target server.

OPCON-15089: Fixed an issue where wildcard named job and schedule transformation rules that have the same "current value" caused incorrect transformation rules to be applied to them. Also, added suffix wildcard. "job" will match if job/schedule ends with "job". "job" and "job*" will continue behaving as normal and will match if the job/schedule starts with "job"

OPCON-15080: Fixed an issue where only one of multiple external dependencies to the same schedule and job were imported into Deploy.
