Cloud Application Integration : 2020 : August Skip navigation

We are delighted to announce the August 2020 release of Cloud Application Integration. This release is feature rich. It is being rolled out across regions according to the following schedule:


  • 9 Aug 2020, 9 - 11 PM PST - POD1, POD2
  • 11 Aug 2020, 9 - 11 PM PST - POD3, POD4, GCP, AZURE POD1
  • 18 Aug 2020, 10 AM - 12 PM PST - EMEA, APJ, JAPAN1
  • 18 Aug 2020, 9 - 11 PM PST - POD6, AZURE POD2, CANADA


The August 2020 release contains new features and enhancements in the following areas:


Developer Experience

  • The new Application Integration Home page will benefit developers with shortcuts to create new assets, get quick access to recent updates in project and folders, and quickly access content.
  • We have improved the performance of REST and SOAP API Service Connectors generation from very large Swagger and WSDL interface documents.
  • We have improved the navigation of Process Object references with the ability to open a reference in place to quickly navigate schema references.
  • Developers and operators will benefit from the ability to perform advanced querying and filtering of process instances in the Application Integration Console and My Processes page to quickly locate what they need within hundreds or thousands of instances.


API Improvements

  • We have added support for PUT, DELETE, and PATCH HTTP verbs in addition to the POST and GET verbs to offer developers the ability to define more expressive REST APIs. You can now use these verbs in conjunction with URI resource segments to control whether you are reading, updating, creating, overwriting, modifying, or deleting a REST resource.
  • The ability to add URI resource segments in addition to new HTTP verb support gives developers the control they need to create resource-based REST APIs.


     To learn how to use the Verb Support and URI segments to create comprehensive APIs, please refer this video.



Ability for customers to incorporate a ‘Throw’ step in a Taskflow or a sub-Taskflow to signal an error state in Monitor and allow for controlled termination.


Please see the What's New document for details (also attached with this post).

The Spring 2020 April release of Application Integration includes the following new features and enhancements:


Operational Insights for Application Integration

You can view analytics for Application Integration assets using Operational Insights.


Operational Insights offers several charts that help you quickly and visually assess the status and usage of your Application Integration assets and take appropriate corrective actions if needed. You can view analytics related to API calls, processes, connections, and licensing.


Note: Informatica is introducing Operational Insights support for Application Integration in phases. Operational Insights will be enabled first on a regional basis and then to specific customers upon request before enabling it broadly for all Application Integration customers. If you would like to use Operational Insights with Application Integration before it is broadly released, contact your Customer Success Manager.


OAuth2 authentication for processes

You can enable OAuth2 authentication for a process and configure the API to accept only HTTP authorization requests from the API Gateway.


The API provider must create an OAuth2 enabled managed API for the process in API Manager and generate an OAuth2 client. The API provider must then send the Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services OAuth 2.0 server URL and the client credentials to the API consumers.


API consumers must authenticate against the Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services OAuth 2.0 server and use the OAuth 2.0 client credentials to generate an OAuth 2.0 authorization token. API consumers must then use the OAuth 2.0 authorization token to invoke the API.


Asset dependencies

You can view asset dependencies for a process, service connector, app connection, guide, and process object from the corresponding asset designer page. You can view a list of objects that the asset depends on and a list of objects that the asset is dependent on.


You might want to view dependencies before performing certain operations on an asset. For example, you cannot delete an asset if another object depends on the asset. You must first delete the dependent objects and then delete the asset. You can find out the dependent objects by viewing the asset dependencies.
