Bulk transaction operations added to the BMC Remedy AR System actor adapter
The current BMC Remedy AR System adapter includes support for batch operations, which create entries in the application in a sequential manner. In this release, new operations are added to the actor adapter to support bulk transaction operations. The bulk transaction operations are executed in a transaction-based manner. If any of the entries in the operation are incorrect, the entire operation is cancelled.
The following bulk transaction operations are added to the BMC Remedy AR System adapter:
- Bulk Insert Items
- Bulk Query Update Items
- Bulk Update Items
For more information, see BMC Remedy AR System actor adapter requests and responses.
TrueSight Operations Manager monitor adapter now supports Common Event Model
The TrueSight Operations Manager monitor adapter now supports the Common Event Model format. A new element, Use Common Event Model is added to the adapter configuration, which provides an option to convert incoming events to a common event model format. The default value for this element is False. However, while using the monitor adapter as part of the Event Orchestration, you must use the Common Event Model to successfully use the run book.
For more information about adapter configuration, see Configuring the BMC TrueSight Operations Manager adapter. For more information about the common event model and how it is used for the run book, see Common Event Model for Event Orchestration.
Transport Layer Security encryption mode support for TrueSight Operations Manager actor and monitor adapter
The TrueSight Operations Manager actor and monitor adapter now supports Transport Layer Security (TLS) mode encryption protocol.
For more information, see Enabling TLS mode for TrueSight Operations Manager adapter.
