TIBCO Cloud Mesh

You can now consume data from services that are provided via TIBCO Cloud Mesh using company data service tasks.

TIBCO Cloud Mesh provides the following features:

  • Simple - Visual discovery and selection of available services, including search and sort capabilities.
  • Seamless - Access to all services within your organization, regardless of who implemented the service, or how they implemented it.
  • Secure - Run time service invocations performed with built-in authorization, inherently private to your TIBCO Cloud.
  • Shared - Access to services in your related organizations.

Boolean and date-time types in TIBCO Cloud Mesh Services

You can now consume services via TIBCO Cloud Mesh which contain Boolean and date-time types.

Date-time service data properties are presented with separate date and time mapping pickers. This is supported on input and output.

Boolean service properties can be mapped from and to "true" and "false" text values. This is supported on input and output and you can use 'A specific value' as well as 'text fields'.

Temporary fields in conditional assignment

You can now use temporary fields in conditional assignment calculation conditions.

For example, in an Order app with a list of Orderlines you can find and assign a reference to the first Orderline matching a given condition. You can make conditional assignments to fields within the matching Orderline via the temporary field.

Update individual list items

You can now update data in complex list items from either process data or other expressions.

For example, in an Order app with a list of Orderlines you can find and assign a reference to the first Orderline matching a given condition. This allows you to access and update that Orderline's data via the temporary field.

Component Explorer

You can now use the Component Explorer to use components to help you build custom apps.

Live Apps Components compliment the API to allow you to easily build custom apps. You can use components to create cases, run case actions and open work items.

In Live Apps Designer

Add annotations to process diagrams

You can now add text annotations to process diagrams. You can add up to 1000 characters of text and drag and resize each annotation as needed, which will allow designers to make notes on their designs.

Conditionally assign and unset groups in calculation tasks

In calculations, you can select specific groups as parameters for conditional assignment, copy, add to list and remove from list functions. You can unset field values using the conditional assignment and copy functions. We’ve added a new “Company Review” template to demonstrate how you might use this feature.

Lookup participants in calculation functions

You can now lookup users by their email address so they can be used to dynamically populate participant fields. This will allow your application to have dynamic access control and user task behavior, dependent on case or other input data.

List picklist conditions

You can now assign data using the following conditions in the where clause of lookup from a list:

  • contains any of
  • contains at least
  • contains only
  • contains none of

Add and remove items from a list

You can now add individual or multiple items to a list. You can also remove individual or multiple items from a list.

Application Flow Viewer

You can now see a graphical view of your application which shows the flow between states and the actions that progress the application between the states.

This provides an overview of the state flow that is configured in the application actions’ state availability and task exit-state configurations within the action editor. You can use the hyperlinks on the actions to open the editor for the action.

Multi-select picklist conditions

You can now specify conditions based on a user's selections from a picklist.

Create a text list in your application data and in the Restrictions properties provide a set of predefined values. In a conditional flow or a calculation task conditional assignment expression, name this list and select one of the following operations. Then select the relevant predefined values to check against.

4 new conditional expressions can be used:

  • contains any of
  • contains at least
  • contains only
  • contains none of

This will allow designers to simplify their process design by using these expressions directly in conditional flows or assignments.

Assigning participants and weblinks in calculation functions

You can now use participant User, Group and Weblink fields in copy, conditional assignment and lookup functions.

Populating lists in calculation functions

You can now use copy and conditional assignment to populate lists.

New options available before showing an initial form to a user when they use a creator or action process

Rather than start your creator and action processes with a single form where you want a user to enter some data, you can now choose whether you want any other tasks to be performed before the case creation or action is initiated. You can:

  • Fetch data from a company data service or perform a calculation as input to the form that the user submits.
  • Have the user provide some initial input before fetching and calculating data. The user then completes and submits the form.

New "build a phrase" feature

You can now quickly and easily create a phrase in a data calculation task. For example, you can create a phrase like this one:

Customer Order: Order/ID approved by Process Starter/Name

Conditional assignment calculation function

You can now assign values to data fields based on a condition using the Conditional assignment function. This allows you to define simple conditions without having to design conditional flows and separate calculation tasks in a process.

Get data from a list calculation function

Using the Get data from all matching list items function, you can look up items in a list, and copy them to another list. This is useful if your process contains tasks that are dependent on data that is contained in the list.

You can also use the Get data from first matching item function to look up a single item from a list.

02 / 2019

Introducing multiple conditions for flows

You can now define multiple conditions for each flow in your process. This is useful if you have a more complex process that contains tasks that are dependent on more than one condition.

TIBCO Scribe® Online Connector for TIBCO Cloud™ Live Apps now available

TIBCO Scribe® Online Connector for TIBCO Cloud™ Live Apps allows you to build data integrations between TIBCO® Live Apps applications and any combination of other cloud-based and on-premise applications. From TIBCO Scribe®, you can connect to a Live Apps service, find and retrieve your case information, create cases and perform case actions.

Authenticating API Access to TIBCO Cloud™ Live Apps Services

Any API call to a TIBCO® Live Apps service must include valid authentication information. You can include authentication information using the methods provided by the Authentication Service.

For more information about how to use these methods, see "Authenticating API Access to TIBCO Cloud™ Live Apps Services" in the TIBCO Cloud™ Live Apps API, at <liveapps domain>/apps/api-explorer/index.html.
