JCo Runtime for SAP Cloud Platform - Fixes

  • When using JCoRecord.fromJSON() for a structure parameter, the data is now always sent to the backend system. Also, you do not need to append the number of provided rows for table parameters before parsing the JSON document any more.
  • Depending on the configuration of certain JCo properties, an internally managed connection pool could throw a JCoException (error group JCO_ERROR_RESOURCE). In a thread waiting for a free connection from this pool, an error message then erroneously reported that the pool was exhausted .

    This error situation could occur if the used destination was not configured with the property jco.destination.max_get_client_time set to 0 and the destination's jco.destination.peak_limit value was set higher than the jco.destination.pool_capacity.

    This issue has been fixed.

Cloud Connector Fixes

Release of Cloud Connector 2.11.3:

  • The Windows service no longer runs in error 1067 when stopped by an administrator.
  • In previous releases, the connection between a shadow and a master instance occasionally failed at startup and produced an empty error message. This issue has been fixed.
  • The Cloud Connector does not cache Kerberos tokens in the protocol handler any more, as they are one-time tokens and cannot be reused.
  • For HTTP access control entries, you can configure resources containing a # character.

  • You can now configure also the MOC (Multiple Origin Composition) OData service paths as resources.
  • The Location header is now adjusted correctly according to your access control settings in case of a redirect.
  • Principal propagation now also works with SAML assertions that contain an empty attribute element.

CPU Performance

We plan to provide a predictable and guaranteed CPU performance for Cloud Foundry applications in August/September (earliest 2018-08-16).

Today, Cloud Foundry applications get a guaranteed 1/8 core CPU per GB instance memory plus available CPU if the Diego Cell is idling. However, this is neither guaranteed nor predictable. In future, we plan to provide 1/4 core CPU per GB instance memory, but we plan to cap the CPU at this level. In addition, we will allow for a maximum of 8 GB instance memory, which means a vertical scaling up to 2 cores CPU per application instance.

Please check the CPU consumption of your applications with cf app <app name> and scale your application if needed. 100% CPU in the output of cf app correspond to 1 core.

When configuring a site menu, administrators can switch from SAP Fiori 2 to SAP Fiori 3 as the version for new sites created. The main difference between the two SAP Fiori versions is the color (inherited from the site theme) and the style. To be more specific:

  • The SAP Fiori 2 menu style features the brand color as the menu background color. When hovering over a menu item, the background color of that item changes.

  • The SAP Fiori 3 menu style features the base color as the background color. When hovering over a menu item, an underline in the brand color is added to highlight the menu item.

Transition to the new version of Portal on Cloud Foundry

We would like to bring to your attention the following important information.
  • In TechEd Barcelona 2018, a new version of Portal on Cloud Foundry was introduced. This new version replaces the previous service (on Cloud Foundry) which required working with both Cloud Foundry environment for running sites, and Neo environment for creating sites. The new Portal version provides enhanced usability and simplicity for users.
  • The new Portal version will enable Content federation, UX enhancements (Fiori3.0) and is aligned with the multi-cloud strategy to spread across additional infrastructure in SAP Data Centers. See Portal RoadmapInformation published on SAP site for additional details about the new service planned capabilities.

For more information about the new Portal version, see Portal on Cloud Foundry documentation.

While still supported, the previous version of Portal on Cloud Foundry is not planned to be enhanced with new capabilities offered in the new version, and will only include critical bug fixes. Therefore, we encourage you to transition to the new version of Portal on Cloud Foundry to take advantage of the new capabilities and align with SAP's strategy.

For assistance in the transition, please open a support ticket on component EP-CPP-CF-FLP-RT.

Overriding the Statе of the Feature Flags

When importing feature flags from a JSON file and updating the service instance, you can now preserve the state of these flags as part of this service update. To do that, you have to specify the parameter overrideStatus and set it to false. If you set it to true, then the service instance configuration will be exactly as specified in this JSON file.

Announcement

The Agent Activation for Dynatrace service is now available in the Neo environment.

The service enables you to connect Java applications to your Dynatrace SaaS monitoring environment. By configuring the service, you allow the Dynatrace Agent to be injected into all your applications after their next restart. The agent then collects monitoring data - metrics, events, and end-to-end traces – and sends all the data to your monitoring environment running in datacenters that are hosted by Dynatrace.

The Analyze menu of the SQL console now includes the Report Code Coverage option, which gathers position (line, column, start, end) coverage information for SQLScript procedures, functions, and anonymous blocks.
Catalog Enhancements

The catalog browser tree now shows the following new object types to support SAP HANA smart data integration:

Data Provisioning Agents
Monitor the basic system information of an agent (such as CPU, memory, timestamps) and the time it last connected with the Data Provisioning server.
Remote Subscriptions
Monitor basic information for your remote subscriptions, such as the schema in the remote source, the number of messages received and applied by the Data Provisioning server, and the times the last message was received and applied.
Tasks
View information about your data provisioning tasks, such as the mealtime design time object, the create time and the memory size.

For more information about smart data integration, visit the SAP HANA Smart Data Integration and SAP HANA Smart Data Quality guide.
