    • The transport protocol used, such as SFTP or AS2

    • Details associated with the URL for the endpoint, such as the path

  • Delete endpoints

    You can now delete an endpoint that is not used in any message flow configuration. If an endpoint is used in a message flow, you must dissociate the endpoint, update the message flow, and then delete the endpoint.

2.1.3

December 20, 2019

Fixed Issues

  • The latest deployment activity was overriding previous recent deployment activity from the deployment activity section in Message flow details. (B2BSOLUT-2970, B2BSOLUT-2982)

  • The undeployment action details were not showing up correctly in the message flows list. (B2BSOLUT-3011)

2.1.2

2.1.1

December 13, 2019

Fixed Issue

2.1.0

December 7, 2019

Compatibility Information

  • Mule runtime engine 4.2.2

Browser Compatibility

  • Google Chrome 77 and later

  • Firefox 69 and later

Dependent Components Used

  • Anypoint Connector for AS2 4.1.0

New Features

  • Undeploy Message Flows
    Users can now undeploy message flows to remove the associated message flow configuration and the B2B integration applications from Mule. Undeploying a flow stops further processing of any messages associated with that flow.

  • Delete Identifiers
    Users can now delete all X12 ISA identifiers, X12 GS identifiers, and DUNS identifiers. Every partner must have at least one identifier.

  • Delete Message Flows
    Users can now delete a message flow. A message flow must be undeployed before attempting to delete it.

  • Delete Trading Partners
    Users can now delete trading partners. Deleting a trading partner deletes the information associated with that partner, such as identifiers, certificates, endpoints, and message flows. Activities for the partner that occurred before the partner was deleted are not deleted, although the Activities page shows that the partner has since been deleted.

Fixed Issues

  • On the Activities page, using certain special characters caused the backend API to respond with an HTTP 400 error. [B2BSOLUT-2350]

  • An uncaught error when creating a new message type is resolved. [B2BSOLUT-2491]

  • If the name of a message flow is changed, the details about routing after sending files show "missing message flow" on the Activities page. [B2BSOLUT-2531]

  • Upgraded commons-codec to v1.13 to overcome a security vulnerability in earlier versions. [B2BSOLUT-2539]

  • Upgraded react.dom to v16.12.0 to overcome a security vulnerability in earlier versions. [B2BSOLUT-2548]

  • Resolved a fatal error when using a dash (-) when deploying an SFTP to an HTTPS message flow. [B2BSOLUT-2673]

  • The API now validates a valid email address when defining an AS2 endpoint. [B2BSOLUT-2675]

  • Links were previously shown with an invalid color in Firefox. [B2BSOLUT-2676]

  • Users were unable to create a new partner with an X12 ISA/SCAC qualifier when the identifier value used the maximum permissible length. [B2BSOLUT-2684]

  • Upgraded netty-code-http to v4.1.7 to overcome a security vulnerability in earlier versions. [B2BSOLUT-2708]

  • Creating long names with AS2 identifiers raised errors. [B2BSOLUT-2711]

  • The transmission data patch was occasionally missed, leaving reported activities in an incomplete state. [B2BSOLUT-2733]

  • Sending the same type of EDI files simultaneously to multiple partners caused transactions for one of the partners to fail. [B2BSOLUT-2746]

  • Upgraded jquery to overcome a security vulnerability in earlier versions. [B2BSOLUT-2791]

  • Clicking the Partner Manager logo and name now reloads the page. [B2BSOLUT-2849]

2.0.1

November 9, 2019

Fixed Issue

  • Transmission data attributes were not being shown for failed transmissions. These attributes include partners involved in the transmission, EDI format and metadata for the interchange. All new deployments use the latest version of the DocumentProcessingService application.

    If you have any message flows deployed with Partner Manager 2.0.0, use Anypoint Runtime Manager to remove the existing DocumentProcessingService application. To get latest version of DocumentProcessingService, use the Deploy button to redeploy any message flow from Anypoint Partner Manager.

    Removing the DocumentProcessingService application pauses transaction processing until you deploy these message flows again. For information about deleting applications, refer to Managing Applications on Your Own Servers.
