Dell Boomi AtomSphere

Release notes for 13 Oct 2018

The following list shows new features, enhancements, and bug fixes in the October 2018 release.

Subject to the terms and conditions of our existing contract with your firm, and liability provisions and limits therein, we confirm that Boomi has successfully passed all applicable test cases associated with the updates identified in this product release.

Learn more about the new features and enhancements in the October Release Highlights blog post in the Dell Boomi Community.

NOTE: Dell Boomi branding changes are reflected in this release:
  • What was formerly known as the Dell Boomi platform is now the Dell Boomi AtomSphere platform. As such, “Dell Boomi AtomSphere” is now displayed in the banner across the top of the page regardless of the application in use, be that Boomi Integration (formerly AtomSphere), Master Data Hub, API Management, or Boomi Flow. The application in use is identified, as before, by the currently selected item in the application menu.

  • What was formerly known as the AtomSphere application is now Dell Boomi Integration. As such, the previous "AtomSphere” item in the application menu is relabeled “Integration”, and the AtomSphere User Guide is retitled “Boomi Integration User Guide”.

NOTE: Dell Boomi is committed to modernizing its integration platform to ensure ongoing reliability, performance, and scalability. As part of this effort, the Dell Boomi AtomSphere platform was migrated to Amazon Web Services (AWS) on September 8, 2018. Platform migration was Phase 1 of a plan to move the Dell Boomi infrastructure to a more flexible and scalable hosting environment. Migration of the Dell Boomi Atom Clouds will occur in subsequent phases through early 2019.

To learn more about the transition plans, see the Dell Boomi's Planned Improvements to its Hosting Environment article in the Community. For an updated list of IP addresses for the Dell Boomi platform, see Hostnames and IP addresses for connecting with Dell Boomi.

Release notes for the 12 months preceding the current release are archived.

New Community site coming soon

The Dell Boomi Community is moving to a new home! On Saturday, October 27, 2018, at 12:00pm ET, the Community and Support Portal sites will be migrated to a new, combined platform. For details, see Community and Support Site Migration FAQ.

Issue summary

NOTE: The “Usable in RC?” column indicates whether individual features, enhancements, and fixes are usable during the Release Control window before final release. Atom and connector updates are included in Release Control and usable, but neither the AtomSphere platform nor Dell Boomi browse Atoms are updated until the actual release. Therefore, until the actual release:
  • You cannot use Atom and connector enhancements and fixes with companion platform changes.

  • You cannot use connector enhancements and fixes with browse changes for connectors that support browsing only through a Dell Boomi Atom Cloud.
