20.19.02 enhancements

This topic describes the enhancements in this version of TrueSight Orchestration Content. 


New application adapter for Jira

In this release, a new application adapter for Jira is introduced that interacts with Jira REST APIs to perform operations for managing issues. Using this adapter, you can create new issues, update issues, add comments, and notify users for changes made to any issue in Jira.  

For more information, see Jira adapter.


New application adapter for CyberArk

A new application adapter for integrating with CyberArk application is introduced in this release. This adapter consists of an actor adapter only and provides operations for session management, retrieve passwords, and work with safes, safe members, and accounts. 

CyberArk adapter consumes CyberArk Web services and REST API calls to perform operations actions and retrieve password using the application ID and query parameters. The adapter is based on the agent less Application Access Manager (AAM) method for password retrieval and WebSDK API for application management operations. The Central Credential Provider AIM WebService Endpoint allows the CyberArk Adapter to make a REST or a SOAP call to securely retrieve the credentials (using application id and query) from the vault. The WebSDK API allows the adapter to perform safe and account management operations. 

For more information, see CyberArk adapter


New base adapter for Apache Kafka

In this release, a new base adapter is introduced that interacts with Apache Kafka, which is a distributed streaming platform that can be used for building real-time data pipelines and streaming apps. Kafka acts as a message broker, in which messages can be published to a Kafka topic by a publisher and received from a topic by a consumer. The base adapter for Kafka consists of an actor adapter, which acts as a publisher for sending messages to a topic. The monitor adapter acts as a consumer.
