Infinite Blue 4.5 Release Highlights

Visual REST API Mapper

In Infinite Blue 4.5, we provide a REST Service trigger type that enables developers to map Infinite Blue fields with REST service fields and access REST end points with zero coding. This feature supports GET, POST, and PUT operations. Just by configuring the required authentication, header, URL Builder, and Query parameter, developers can generate the code and build their custom logic.

Concurrency for Batch Jobs and Import Jobs

Starting this release, Infinite Blue enhances runtime performance for batch jobs and import jobs by introducing multi-threading for different customers. These jobs will no longer run sequentially in a platform. Each customer’s jobs will be run simultaneously reducing the wait time. This enables individual customers to have their own queue for batch jobs and import jobs.

New Password Change Flow

Password communication and change flow is more secure now. The temporary password functionality has been retired and an email with a password reset link will be sent. This feature is applicable for every New Registration / Change Password / Reset Password actions.
Overall following are the key changes related to Authentication & Password Reset:

Password_Security
  • Knowledge Factor Token for User Authentication – Adds an additional security check for users.
  • User Initiated Password Reset – Sends a notification email after a user has updated their password.
  • Changing the Password Reset Link – Changes the password reset link, and does not send a temporary password.

Get Paged Data APIs

Additional APIs to get paged data for specified views in applications has been introduced. This helps in getting view specific data with customized filters and user permissions for a page. For this, we have introduced the following two APIs:

Dtata_APIs
  • getViewPage() : Gets data for a specific view id with specified filters and languages in an asynchronous AJAX mechanism.
  • getViewCount(): Gets the count of records of a view id and optionally dependent records with specified filters on a result set.
