August 2019 Release: Platform Updates
In this video I’m going to go over some of the platform enhancements. The first is SSO – single log out. In this release, we are now supporting both service provider initiated and identity provider initiated log out for SSO. All applications that use SSO need to support single log out for this to work correctly. So when you sign out of SnapLogic, SnapLogic will also log you out of your identity provider if you have that configured. Similarly if you log out of your identity provider, SnapLogic exposes a URL which can be used to also log the user out of the Snaplogic session.
The reason why administrators of SSO need to be aware of all their applications is that if you log out of SnapLogic and log out of your identity provider, it may not necessarily terminate all the other sessions that are still logged into your SSO. If there’s no callback to different applications to log a user out, then the user won’t be logged out of such applications.
So SSO administrators should recognize that that all applications need to support this.
With the August 2019 release, SnapLogic supports SSO – Single Log out.
The second item is disk alerts for the Snapplex. In the previous releases, we supported CPU and memory alerts and in this release we are supporting disk alerts.
We’re also supporting creating a Snapplex via the metadata snap and so now you can automate i.e. spin up or spin down Snaplexes programmatically. I’ll now show you this metadata snap and the disk alerts.
For the metadata Snap, let’s select ‘SnapLogic Create’ and when I open the Snap I can now pick the ‘Snaplex’ as the ‘asset type’. I need to specify a path to create this. I’ll need to provide some metadata to create the name. Other configuration information that you normally see when you’re creating Snaplex such as ‘Snaplex email alerts’ are available when you create Snaplexes via the metadata Snap as well.
Now let’s look at the disk alerts. Within manager, if you’re an organization administrator then under settings, go to ‘Alerts / Activity Log Notifications’. Click on ‘Settings’. Then click on ‘Create Notification’ to create a notification rule for Snaplex node disk usage.
To create the rule, select event type as ‘Snaplex node disk usage’, select the ‘Threshold’, i.e. remaining disk space at which you want the platform to alert you. Specify the list of recipients in the ‘Recipients’ field.
Put in the name of the Snaplex, so you’ll put in the path here and then also the type of disk. So if it’s C Drive or D Drive or if there’s different mount in the Linux file system that you want to specify then you can specify that. This is the disk where SnapLogic is installed and where you want to enable monitoring.
