LDAP Identity Plugin: Support for server-side descending ordering
Previously, the LDAP Identity Plugin only allowed for server-side ascending ordering. With this release, we introduce server-side descending ordering for user and group queries according to RFC 2891.
Server-side sorting is disabled by default, but you can enable it with the help of the plugin configuration property
sortControlSupported. You can read more about it in our documentation.
This feature was contributed by one of our consultants Pierre-Yves Monnet. Thank you for your contribution!
Support for Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL 13 and 14
This release adds Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL 13 and 14 to the list of supported databases.
New locations of the Webapp translation files
The Automation Platform 7 team maintained and continues maintaining the German and English translations right from the start of the i18n feature introduced with Camunda Automation Platform 7.2.
Over the years, 16 translations for other languages have been contributed by the community. These translations are not actively maintained by our team.
To emphasize which languages are maintained by the community and which are not, we have moved the community-driven ones to the community hub:
The English and German translations are now part of our main repository:
We have documented the places where you can find the respective translation files in the README file of the community hub repository (see “Webapp” column of the table).
Native ARM64 Camunda Platform Docker images
Many of our users are using computers with ARM64 processors, and while it’s possible and fairly easy to run non-native docker images using emulation, the experience is quite poor. Usually starting and running non-native images is much slower and sluggish.
Starting with this release we are providing native ARM64 platform versions of all the Camunda Platform Docker images. The images can be pulled and used the exact same way as before from the registry. Docker will automatically download the correct platform version based on your system.
A little insight of how much faster a native
camunda-bpm-platform:wildfly image startup is on an M1 Apple MacBook:
- AMD64 image startup using emulation: ~75 seconds.
- Native ARM64 image startup: ~8 seconds.
(As reported by the Wildfly startup log message)
Show open incidents in Process Definition History View
The open incidents badge is now also shown on the Process Definition History View. It shows the total number of open incidents related to the selected process definition version.
Update event trigger for message catch events by default
In Cockpit process migration, the default behavior of the update event trigger has changed for message catch events. The update event trigger is now automatically set for all activities with message references, i.e. for interrupting/non-interrupting message boundary events, message intermediate catch events, and receive tasks.
This ensures that all migrated processes can process the messages with the adopted name and avoid unnecessary errors.
