New interface and SAML 2.0 support released
Release Date: 19 February 2019
Our latest release introduces a suite of powerful new features to enhance productivity within the OneCloud application and make it even easier to build and manage your Chains. SAML 2.0 integration is now live as well, so be sure to check our single sign-on guide guide for more details on how to integrate your identity provider with OneCloud. Without further adieu, here are some of the highlights:
Improved interface for building Chains
We've made a number of improvements to building and viewing your Chains. The Chain layout uses space more effectively for your viewing pleasure. Users may now also insert commands between two existing commands and before a command. Lastly, we have added panning and zooming functionality to all Chain visualizations. The focus of this new interface is being more intuitive and displaying the most relevant information for you.
You'll notice that the save icon now says "Publish" underneath it. The changes you make in a Chain will not take effect when the Chain is run until you publish. This means that you can safely make changes to your Chain without affecting the current schedule or manual runs. You'll only see this if there are unsaved changes to your Chain; when your Chain is published you'll see a green check mark. Versions will now only reflect the points in time that you published your Chain.
Improved usage of variables
Using variables to propagate data throughout your Chain is a powerful construct in OneCloud, and our new release makes it easier and more flexible than ever before.
No more manual file associations
Want to use a file template with your email? No longer will you have to go to the resources section of the command and manually attach the file. If you select the file from the variable menu, the association is made automatically. Eliminating this unnecessary, error-prone process is an important step forward for file-based tasks.
Variables now stand out when used within a command and must be inserted from the variable menu, eliminating the need for users to enter them manually. Taking the guesswork out of this process means fewer errors and less time spent experimenting when building your Chains.
Pan and zoom
You may now manipulate the size and placement of your Chain. Sometimes, complex Chains with lots of branches flow off the screen and you're unable to see the full picture. Zoom out or drag your Chain around to view the relevant commands as you edit.
SAML 2.0 integration
OneCloud now allows your organization to login via an SSO provider (i.e. Okta, OneLogin). As with the rest of the OneCloud platform, there are fine-grained controls around SSO; it can be enabled or disabled per user. See our guide for a step-by-step tutorial on setting up SSO in OneCloud.
