What's New

This release contains the following new features and enhancements:

  • Support for Undeploying Rules Packages—A new Undeploy button has been added to the Outstanding Deployments dialog for users with the PACKAGE_UNDEPLOY role privilege. Such users can now select a target GRE or cluster and undeploy a package from that location/cluster. Deployment history displays the undeployment. MORE DETAILS

  • Automated Snapshots on Deployment—GRAT can now be configured to take snapshots automatically at deployment. In the Deploy and Schedule Deployment dialogs, a Create snapshot to deploy check box is now displayed for the LATEST version only of a rules package, for users with relevant permissions. MORE DETAILS

  • Package History Improvements—Several improvements are implemented in the Package History tab:
  • A new column indicates the location in the business structure for changes in the rules.
  • Package history now shows only changes from those business structure nodes to which the user has access.
  • The Changed by column can now be hidden by a role privilege (PACKAGE_HISTORY_VIEW_CHANGED_BY).
  • A new column shows the snapshot in which the change is present. MORE DETAILS
  • Support for Database Connection Monitor—GRAT now detects any loss of connectivity to the repository database and reports the issue in status.jsp for load balancers. GRAT continuously monitors the database connection status at a regular configurable intervals. If the database connection fails, the monitor now sets the status to SYSTEM_STATUS_DB_NOT_CONNECTED. Later when the database connection is detected to be normal, the monitor resets the status to normal. MORE DETAILS

  • Application Server Support—Tomcat 8 and 8.5 are supported in this release of GRS.

  • Linear Rule Improvements—The maximum limit of 6 segments (text plus variables) on Conditions or Actions in linear rules has been increased to 9 in this release. An error message is displayed if this limit is breached.

  • Business Calendar Enhancements—Business Calendar exceptions can now be prioritized by users in order to avoid potential clashes. MORE DETAILS

  • Rule Export Enhancements—When exporting Rule Templates as XML, users now can choose which rule packages to export. Previously, all rule packages from the repository were exported.

Resolved Issues

This release contains the following resolved issues:

Previously, when exporting a decision table to XML, or exporting an entire rule package containing decision tables as XML, GRAT injected an XSD section into the first column of each decision table. When a user imported the rule or rule package again, it could sometimes cause the DROOLS compiler to hang when rendering package source, creating a snapshot or deploying. This has now been corrected. (GRS-3044)

An exception generated when a user selected a SNAPSHOT from the Deploy screen and then clicked "Show Package Source" has been corrected in this release. (GRS-3043)

GRAT now correctly handles template parameters that are defined as "string" and contain embedded curly brace characters ({). (GRS-3037)

GRAT now correctly handles German UTF letters in solution names. Previously this problem caused the whole solution's business structure to fail to load. (GRS-3036)

GRAT now creates the RBAC mappings script folder at the correct location in a single-tenant environment. (GRS-3028)

GRAT now copies and pastes timezone selection correctly in Test Scenarios. Previously, copy and paste operations caused the pasted timezone to render incorrectly as GMT. (GRS-3011)

A button display problem has been fixed. Previously, after a Google Chrome upgrade, buttons in the GRAT UI were displaying incorrectly with a pixel gap between the label and the button's edge. (GRS-2987)

GRAT's health check jsp (status.jsp) now only returns HTTP 200 (OK) when status is healthy (SYSTEM_STATUS_OK). This makes it consistent with how GRE's status.jsp works, and helps load balancers to direct traffic to healthy GRAT nodes without having to inspect the text response. (GRS-2974)

GRAT now no longer generates $env for Decision Tables when using templates that support Complex Event Processing (such as Genesys Web Engagement). (GRS-2966)

Upgrade Notes

No special procedure is required to upgrade to release 8.5.303.06.
