AWI v12.1 added some capabilities that had been missing from v12.0. (See: Java UI features that are missing from AWI v12.0.) Version 12.2 did not introduce significant changes.
Here are the features of the Java User Interface that are still missing from from the Automic Web Interface as of v12.2.
Option to open Task Details in a separate window
Keyboard navigation in AWI
Global option to list objects/tasks by name instead of title
I am using Automic Web Interface 12.0.1.HF02-402 currently with an AE version of 12.0.1+build.632
Can I upgrade to Automic Web Interface 12.1.1 HF3 and if yes, is there anything which I need to keep in mind or change in the existing set up.
I suggest you post your question to the CA Automic Workload Automation discussion forum, or open a support ticket.
I would like to see Variable Picker added to the AWI. Not sure if this falls under script editor improvements.
11.2 Docu example: Variable Picker
Ive got a case open with support where they attached it to a problem but I cannot seem to find it after the migration. Once I have this problem I'll update this post.
We already reported the missing "variable picker" to Automic.
"Workaround" was to use $&+CTRL-SPACE to open up the auto completion. All available variables are shown there - however without any description.
The "Replace" function (right click on object > Replace) is also missing in AWI.
Currently no feedback regarding a target version
And one more:
The "Print" function is missing completely.
We also have found missing JAVA UI features (and unpleasantries) in AWI 12.1 (12.1.0.GA01-dev-feature-release/12.1-66009):
I have also found a few things that are missing in AWI 12.1 which are available in JAVA UI:
Administration Perspective (System Overview in JAVA UI):
B.01, B.10 and B.60
MQ-set (own) and MQ-set (active)
Right-click a Server Process and select "Change Server mode to..." is not available in AWI
The columns B.01, B.10, B.60, Net Area and Role are hidden by default. You can insert them by clicking on the down-arrow at the right side and select them.
The menu commands Change Server Mode to ... and so on are also available. Please be aware that they are not available for the PWP and the WPs with the roles O and R. But for all other WPs they are available.
Great stuff, and thanks for sharing with the Community.
We are unable to export generated forecasts to a file.
I've got a few items that we've also noticed are gone from the AWI that were in the Java client:
I added item #8, AWI: undo & redo functions. Thanks to Alexandra Hauer.
I added item #9, AWI: show prompt set errors directly in user input dialog box.
Added item #10, Multiple selection in Workflow editor.
Added item #11, FOKUS: Verbesserung AWI - Highlighting von Objekten nach Objektsuche
I would have another suggestion:
Visiable change of variables in JobPlan
Hopefully i find some supporters here...
We're currently upgrading our UC4 system from V9 to V12.
An issue I've noticed in AWI (V12.2.1) is that for any new jobs that are added to workflows, within the 'Time & Dependencies' tab of the job 'properties' pane, under Dependencies the 'Execute this task if' section is missing.
Workflows that we migrated over from V9 have correctly inherited the correct values and these can be modified. But for new jobs added to the same workflow, this property is unavailable.
Can anyone else confirm if they have the same issue as I'm not sure if this is something specific to our install or a problem with the product.
Turns out saving the workflow and reopening it resolves this issue. Minor annoyance once aware of the behaviour.
We are using AWI 12.2.1 with hf02 and I still do not have the option to do the advanced search on the RA Solution. Has anyone heard when this will be added?
In WEB UI the "Details" option is integrated at the right top corner of most of the sub-tabs under 'process monitoring' and 'process assembly'.One such example is attached from 'executions'.
Good news, the execute option on HSTA Objects is back and available with 12.3.2.
You can find it opening the HSTA Object. There is a new button Apply Authorization Policy.
Thanks to Automic developers bringing this capability into the AWI.
Just some remarks from a grumpy old guy confined home for an unknown number of weeks =-)
