    Hi Sekar,

    I don't, personally, know of any plans to release additional features/actions to the weblogic action pack in parallel with the release of version 6.7 of Release Automation. It may be that some action packs don't work on older versions of RA. I have heard that action packs are specific to RA versions even though I have never seen an action pack <-> RA compatibility problem. I mention this because I would imagine 6.7 should support all of the action packs currently available for 6.6.

    The latest release of the Weblogic action pack is 10.13.1801.2. You can find out more about the features it offers here:

    I hope this help.

    Kind regards,
    Gregg

    Hi Avi,

    here is the list of features we are looking to release with v6.7:

    Agent Management in the Release Operations Center
    ●   You can now manage Nolio Agents and Execution servers in the Release Operations Center (ROC). Previously, you could only configure agents and execution servers in the Automation Studio.

    Improved Agent Upgrade

    ●   Agent upgrade procedure has been reworked providing a better upgrade and rollback procedure.

    User Management in the Release Operations Center

    ●   User management has been optimised for LDAP and AD integrations, improving the overall user experience.

    Performance Improvements

    ●   Performance improvements have been made in various areas, such as the artifact distribution process, the deployment view, the User management view, and Agent management.

    Infrastructure Manager

    ●   Multi-cloud full-stack provisioning for Nolio, driven by Hashicorp Terraform.

    Modern Architecture Support

    ●   Full transparency & control over container deployments driven by Helm & K8S.



    • Please let me know if you need more information around the features or improvements that we are releasing.
