Digital Enterprise Suite

Digital Enterprise Suite – Release Notes – September 11, 2020

Title Shadow
New/Improved Features
  • New component: Knowledge Entity Modeler
    • Part of the Digital Modeling Suite Foundation.
    • Create Business Vocabularies of terms with their definition, examples, notes, alternatives and data types.
    • Define Business Rules that can reuse existing terms.
    • Relate terms by creating Concept Maps diagrams.
  • Digital Enterprise Graph now supports the reuse of concepts by reference or by copy.
    • Dragging elements from the Digital Enterprise Graph add them to the canvas with a closed lock (by reference) or an open lock (by copy)
    • When reusing an element (closed lock), the dragged element can’t be modified locally and will automatically be updated when it changes in the source model.
    • When using a copy (open lock), the dragged element can be locally modified while keeping its connection to the source model. It can be re-synchronized with its source through the detail panel.
    • An element that is reused can be transformed into a copy by unlocking the reference from the detail panel. It can be converted back to a reuse link later.
    • Reuse and copy links are visible in the right column of the detail panel of an element.
  • Terms defined in the Knowledge Entity Modeler can be used in the description and notes of all the elements in all types of models.
  • The Decision Modeler Dictionary panel was removed.
    • The Digital Enterprise Graph offers an alternative way of reusing Decision Model elements without including a complete Decision Model with a prefix. Single elements can be reused through the graph.
    • The inclusion of complete Decision Model with prefix, as described in the DMN specification, is still available through the Include button in the DMN ribbon.
  • New Decision Logics types are available in the Decision Modeler.
    • Iterator: Iterate over collection of data using the FEEL for, every or some functions.
    • Conditional: Visually represent if/then/else statements.
    • Filter: Facilitate the filtering of a collection.
    • These new decision logics are supported by the Digital Automation Suite.
  • Unstructured binary data is now fully supported in the Digital Automation Suite.
    • Use files to start a process.
    • Use files in user and service tasks.
    • Generate files as output.
  • It is now possible to reuse by reference data types indexed in the Digital Enterprise Graph from any model (Workflow, Case, Decision, Knowledge Entity).
  • Every model element can now be tagged with a free text Tag. Tags are accessible from the detail panel of elements. Flags were migrated as tags.
  • The Project Charter was renamed Model Details and now contain structured entry for stakeholders and goals. Challenges were migrated to notes of the model.
  • Knowledge Sources (originally from the DMN palette) are now available as extension artifacts to BPMN and CMMN diagrams.
  • Decision Modeler now displays the type of decision logic in the top left corner of decisions and business knowledge model.
  • When viewing models (through the Kommunicator), clicking on elements now displays their detail panel.
  • Saving a model that contains links (semantic, copy, reuse) in a different place (save as), the links will now automatically reconnect on the target place if the target models already exists.
  • Workflow process deployed to the Digital Automation Suite now expose an API to update the instance data.
  • Groups of users are now available.
    • Groups are composed of users and other groups.
    • A place can now be shared with group(s) and/or user(s).
    • The administrator interface can be used to manage groups and assign access to Places and Execution Environments.
  • It is now possible to use a group or a user of the system as performer for human and manual tasks.
  • Public API Changes.
    • The Place Content API now uses the model namespace as the file id in the API. This allows an easier transition from the digital enterprise graph identifier to the places identifiers which are now aligned. This change is backward compatible and previous file identifier can still be used to access the content from this API.
    • The Login API now return groups membership.
    • The Places API now also return your rights on the place.
Non-backward compatible changes
  • Workflow Process needs to be redeployed from sources if they were using data mapping.
  • API Changes
    • The Digital Enterprise Graph API metamodel was changed. The SPARQL endpoint is still the same but some objects and properties were renamed. New objects and properties are now also available. A separated document is available to document the new graph metamodel. Our support can help customers that integrated through the SPARQL endpoint to highlight changes that will affect them and collaborate with your development team to make the changes in private integrations.
    • The public API endpoints for places (/publicapi/group and /publicapi/groupmember) were removed and replaced by the group API. The information that was available from these endpoints were moved to the /publicapi/repository and /publicapi/repositorymember endpoints.
