Features

Growing File Support

TranscoderS4M and MediaAgents now support growing file saving for cloud storages in their tasks.

Metadata Triggers for Metadata Groups.

It is now possible to trigger a workflow on metadata changes for metadata that belong to a group. More details can be found at Trigger workflows based on metadata changes .

New Tasks

AppendWorkflowStatusMessage

Users can now add content to workflow status variables during workflow runtime. It is also possible to include a timestamp in appended messages, which will be inserted as current UTC date and time as a postfix of the actual message.

Updated Tasks

GetExistingPartialOfItem: Uses Shape Data as a fallback

With GetExistingPartialOfItem 1.1, the Shape data is used as a fallback. When start and duration timecodes are not provided, the task will use Shape Data to identify start and duration timecode.

Workflow Designer

A configuration for Error Event Details was added to our new Designer. The search (Ctrl-F) now also supports searching for variable names.

Enhanced support for contract updates on tasks, workflows and rules

The new Workflow Designer now comes with a feature to indicate if newer contracts are available. If a newer version is available, the designer prompts the user to select it. When upgrading to a new version, parameters with the same name and type are automatically carried over. Connectors, boundary events, and other workflow elements are retained if they exist in the new contract. Elements no longer available are marked for removal.

Refer to Handle Contract updates on tasks, workflows and rules [VF UG] for details.

Workflow Monitor 

With 24.2, several performance issues where solved. The results table shows more accurate and up-to-date information. The styling has also been improved.
