Request for enhancements (RFEs) in WebSphere Liberty 22.214.171.124
In this release, the following RFEs were completed:
- RFE 94805: Liberty JSR-352: Enable fine-grained viewing and operation of other batch jobs without requiring batchAdmin role
Find out more below.
- RFE 95794: Status management function for ActivationSpec
Find out more about this update in Fred’s blog post.
Batch group security support
This allows jobs to be assigned to groups such that users within a group can view and/or operate on a set of jobs. This allows a more fine-grained approach to batch security than the previous alternative which required each of these users to be granted the ability to view and/or operate on all jobs (the
batchAdmin role) in order to view and/or operate on anyone else’s jobs. See the WebSphere Liberty Knowledge Center docs.
Migration Toolkit updates
With Migration Toolkit for Application Binaries you can now quickly evaluate your JBoss application binaries and identify how easy it is to migrate them to IBM WebSphere Liberty or IBM WebSphere Application Server traditional. After a quick evaluation with the binary scanner, you can use the Eclipse-based migration tool for source-level evaluation and code updates where a quick fix is available.
We’d love you to get involved in any way that you can, such as testing the code in ways that you use Liberty and raising issues on GitHub, or create pull requests on the code and documentation. You can contribute to discussions about Open Liberty on the mailing list.
