The following list shows new features, enhancements, and bug fixes in the November 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.

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.

NOTE: The following connectors, formerly Tech Previews, are Generally Available for production use with this release:

Although the functionality for each of these connectors is available for general use with this release, removal of the Tech Preview label will not take effect on the AtomSphere platform until the January 2019 release.

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.
