Technology support changes

Please see Technology coverage changes in CAST AIP 8.3.x for more detailed discussion of this subject.

CAST Application Engineering Dashboard

Education feature

The CAST Application Engineering Dashboard now features the ability to add violations (objects) to an "Education list" (see CAST-AED - Education) to highlight specific issues that may not be corrected, but require tracking, monitoring. In essence the Education list:

Change Language option

The top user menu now has an additional drop down menu item called "Change Language". This allows a user to change the language of the text items in the dashboard, providing an administrator has configured the language:

In addition, a parameter called "default" has been added to the ced.json file to allow a specific language to be set by default.

Export to Excel

It is now possible to export data to Excel file at Violation level in the Application Investigation and Transaction Investigation views, for example:

CAST Management Studio

CLI

ConfigurePlatformPreferences

The option jobLogRootPath has been removed and can no longer be used with the command ConfigurePlatformPreferences. Please use logRootPath instead. See Automating CAST Management Studio tasks.

CAST Transaction Configuration Center

CLI

CAST is now delivering a bespoke executable for running automated CAST Transaction Configuration tasks. Previously, command line tasks could be run using CAST-TransactionConfig.exe, however, CAST highly recommends that all automated command line tasks now use CAST-TransactionConfig-CLI.exe.

CAST Architecture Checker

GUI: changing model properties

Following the introduction of the ability to change model properties directly in CAST Architecture Checker introduced in CAST AIP 8.3.1 (see Changes or new features - 8.3.1), if you open a Architecture Model created and saved with a previous release of CAST AIP (≤ 8.3.0), then you may be warned as follows:

 

This means that the Architecture Model was created with an older release of CAST AIP that did not include the ability to set Properties on the model. As such, the CAST Architecture Checker has initialized these Properties in the Architecture Model with default values. These default values may not correspond to the values you may have set in the CAST Management Studio and therefore may impact results when the Architecture Model is used in an analysis.

CAST Delivery Manager Tool

GUI

A new option "Exclude test code" has been added to the Package Configuration tab in the CAST Delivery Manager Tool. When ticked, this option will force all folders containing the word "test" to be excluded from the packaging:
