    Hello Goutierre,

     

    Thanks for the info. I have upgraded our DEV instance here at Moody's. one issue:

    I am missing the option to search an agent under "Agent Management". That option exists in Automation Studio (I am logged on as a superuser).

    Thanks for your reply, Gouttierre!

     

    We are still missing the remote agent installation which was available in Automation Studio.

    Is that feature obsolete?

    Hi Avi,

    The ASAP is still available in Nolio Release Automation 6.7 and is accessible through the following URL: http://{hostname}:{port}/nolio-app/app.jsp

    The ASAP was hidden from the application welcome screen as we are in the process of migrating all existing functionality from the ASAP to the ROC user interface, such as notifications, scheduling processes etc., as this is a prerequisite for Nolio to move to OpenJDK 11 support.

    Therefore, until all the ASAP features have been fully migrated to the ROC UI, which will be done over several releases, it will be available to the users if needed.

    Reverting to your initial question, with regards to the "remote agent installation", there were some discrepancies in the regression testing when that functionality was ported across to the ROC UI that raised concerns and is currently being assessed by the engineering team for future releases.

    The Nolio engineering team is verifying if the ASAP's "remote agent installation" functionality is still safe to use as various improvements to other areas were implemented for agents functionality, and communications will be sent out regarding limitations with working through the ASAP.

    I hope that answers your question and thank you for your support.

    Best regards,

    Gouttierre,

     

    Another useful feature would be the option to export results from Agent Management page.

    Most times we are getting list of agents for particular reasons, and being able to get that from the UI would be great!
