Enterprise Application Integration

    • OneView timeline now shows the related and transformed documents as inputs and outputs of the components like API, Mapper, etc.
  • Drill Back to ION API Monitoring:
    • From ION OneView, you can now drill directly back to the ION API Gateway Monitoring page using the API reference. 
  • Scripts in Workflows (Professional Tier Feature):
    • Use the 'Script' step to execute a script synchronously from a workflow. You can pass workflow parameters as input to the script, and map script output variables to (other) workflow parameters. You can also pass workflow structures as input to a script.
