BMC Helix Integration Service 19.08 highlights
New transformation options to design flows
While transforming mapped fields in Flow Designer, you can use new string transformation functions. The new functions enable you to configure the flows to perform the following actions:
- Remove the HTML tags used for text formatting to send plain text to a target system.
- Depending on the condition in a source application, set the boolean fields in a target application to True or False.
Additionally, starting with this release, you can apply the following transformations between fields of different types:
- String to integer
- Integer to string
- Date to string
- Date to integer
- Integer to date
Apply custom schemes to existing flows
In BMC Helix Integration Studio, in a flow profile, you can refresh the custom fields to apply an updated custom schema to an existing flow. You can use this option in the following cases:
- If a custom schema for a connector in a flow is generated after the flow is created (the flow initially uses a default schema).
- If a custom schema for a connector in a flow is regenerated, and some of the custom fields are removed in the regenerated schema.
An improved JIRA Service Desk connector to support attachments
Starting with the 19.08 release, BMC Helix Integration Studio supports passing the files attached to the JIRA Service Desk comments when running flows.
Password reset option for end users in BMC Helix Integration Studio
In earlier versions of BMC Helix Integration Studio, only tenant administrators could reset passwords for the end user accounts in their tenants. Starting with 19.08 release, end users can also change their passwords in the User Profile section of BMC Helix Integration Studio.
