Cast Iron Version 6.3.0.0

IBM has released a new version of CIOS version 6.3.0.0 was released on 12/14/2012.  You can view the details on the Release Notes and Online Help by following the links.

Bug Fixes and Testing Impact

From the Bug Fixes in the Release Notes, the one that jumps out as a potential target for regression tests is this one: 

LI77051: DATABASE CONNECTOR ACTIVITES ARE UPDATING DATABASE WITH GMT TIME IRRESPECTIVE OF TIME ZONE SET ON APPLIANCE


Based on the details noted, it appears that some users using the database connector may experience a change in the way times are stored in the database.  This is likely database specific and would only impact users if their appliance timezone is not set to GMT.

New Feature Highlights

Here's the short list of new features, we'll dig deeper into some of the new features in later posts:
  • REST and JSON Support: Long awaited support for JSON and expanded suport for RESTful web services in the HTTP connector.  See this post for more details.
  • New Connectors: Workday connector, RightNow SOAP API connector, Zuora connector have been added.
  • New Connector Activities: HTTP, JDE, SAP, and PeopleSoft connectors have new activities.
Update: IBM has Issued an Alert for this release due to a critical issue in which the WIP partition could fill up and prevent the appliance from operating normally.  See the Alert from IBM for further instructions should this happen to your appliance.

  1. With cloud computing, you eliminate those headaches because you’re not managing hardware and software—that’s the responsibility of an experienced vendor like salesforce.com. The shared infrastructure means it works like a utility: You only pay for what you need, upgrades are automatic, and scaling up or down is easy. Thanks for sharing this.
