A new version of the IBM Cloud Pak for Integration, 2019.4.1, was recently released which includes new IBM App Connect Enterprise certified container features.
The new features in this release include:
Support for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 4.2
IBM Cloud Pak for Integration 2019.4.1 requires OpenShift 4.2, and for IBM App Connect Enterprise users that includes the addition of OpenShift Routes for HTTP and HTTPS traffic to a deployed integration server, which provide consistent endpoints for interactions.
Deploy API flows authored in IBM App Connect Designer
You can now combine the ease of authoring flows for APIs in IBM App Connect Designer with the flexibility of deploying into your own private cloud. Previously, the managed cloud service had been the only valid deployment target for a Designer-authored flow, but now you can deploy into IBM Cloud Pak for Integration with IBM App Connect Enterprise. In 2019.4.1 this also includes the ability to run a subset of connectors locally, in addition to interacting with connectors in the IBM App Connect managed cloud service. See this blog post for more information about this feature.
User authorization for the IBM App Connect Enterprise dashboard
User authorization has been added for the IBM App Connect Enterprise dashboard using the Identity and Access Management (IAM) service. The authority to use a dashboard can now be determined by the user’s authority for the namespace that contains the dashboard. The different roles for the users provide different permissions for actions in the dashboard.
IBM Cloud Pak for Integration 2019.4.1 is available in a PPA via IBM Passport Advantage (Part CC4R5EN), or via the IBM Cloud Entitled Registry.
