Genesys Rules System Rules Authoring Tool Release Notes
|Release Date||Release Type||Restrictions||AIX||Linux||Solaris||Windows|
This release contains the following new features and enhancements:
- GRAT Clustering—In release 8.5.301, you can now configure clusters of GRAT servers which deliver much greater resilience and availability, enabling instant switchovers between GRAT nodes that are members of the cluster.
- Load Balancing—A load balancer can evenly distribute the load across the available GRAT nodes in the cluster, or can distribute the load based on other criteria, such as the geographic location of the browser.
- High Availability—An n-node cluster configuration can be used to deliver High Availability—for example, if a customer wants to use one GRAT server as primary and another as a secondary/backup warm-standby server, a load balancer could be configured to send all traffic to the primary server. In the event of a failure (or planned maintenance) of the primary GRAT server, the load balancer switches and sends traffic to the warm-standby secondary/backup GRAT server.
- Additional Columns Support—The previous limit of 30 columns in GRAT Decision Tables and Test Scenarios has been increased to 50 columns in this release.
This release contains the following resolved issues:
Unschedule and Edit functionality for scheduled deployments now works as expected. Previously, you could neither successfully unschedule, reschedule nor edit a scheduled deployment at the Tenant level in the Deployment History tab, unless the rules package was first selected from the tree node. Such attempts might appear successful but would leave the deployment permanently scheduled or the edits unsaved. (GRS-2826)
Scheduled deployments that could not be started at deployment time, because of Configuration Server unavailability, and also failed to deploy at the retry time (after Configuration Server connection was re-established) are now correctly deployed. (GRS-2818)
Session timeout information messages now display correctly when such timeouts occur. Previously, only a login screen displayed. (GRS-2777)
Errors in displaying Test Scenario results for rules package with long names and/or descriptions have been corrected. (GRS-2726)
No special procedure is required to upgrade to release 8.5.301.03.
