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.
