Dell Boomi AtomSphere

Release notes for 12 Jan 2019

The following list shows new features, enhancements, and bug fixes in the January 2019 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 January Release Highlights blog post in the Dell Boomi Community.

NOTE: Dell Boomi plans to discontinue support for widgets in the near future. Boomi Integration developers should use integration packs for packaging integration solutions and making them available to end users.
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, see Hostnames and IP addresses for connecting with Dell Boomi.

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

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.

New features

AreaIDUsable in RC?Summary
Atom, Platform, EDIFACT trading partner30332NoAdd an Errors path to the Trading Partner Start shape for processing of invalid EDIFACT documents.
NOTE: Invalid documents are sent to the Documents path by default. To instead send invalid documents of a given type to the Errors path, set Inbound Invalid Document Routing for that message type.

For more information, see Start shape dialog’s Trading Partner option.

Atom, Platform, X12 trading partner 30303NoAdd an Errors path to the Trading Partner Start shape for processing of invalid X12 documents.
NOTE: If you have processes with Documents path logic for handling documents based on the “Is Valid Message?” document property, those processes should continue to work.

For more information, see Start shape dialog’s Trading Partner option.

Platform, trading partners 30228NoAdd support for multiple “My Company” trading partners per EDI document standard.

For more information, see:

NOTE: The following limitations apply in this release:
  • Use of multiple standards is not supported in processes that use multiple “My Company” trading partners with the same standard.

  • Use of the HTTP and MLLP communication methods is not supported in processes that use multiple “My Company” trading partners with the same standard.

If a Trading Partner Start shape or Trading Partner shape in a process is configured without regard for these limitations, an error will occur when the process executes.

Platform, AS2 Shared Server connector 29918NoAdd support for AS2 client certificate authentication for use with trading partners.
NOTE: Previously, if client certificate authentication was enabled in the Shared Web Server and a process used the Trading Partner Start shape to service AS2 requests, client certificate authentication was performed by the Atom’s Shared Web Server. With this release, that authentication is performed by the trading partner, authenticating each client certificate with a unique AS2 From ID.

If client certificate authentication is enabled in your Atom’s Shared Web Server and a process is using the Trading Partner Start shape to service AS2 requests, to prevent AS2 requests from failing with an HTTP 403 response code, you must take one of the following actions:

  • Specify the client certificates for each AS2 From ID.
  • Disable client certificate authentication in your Atom’s Shared Web Server.

If you need assistance, contact Support.

For more information, see:
