Changelog

v3.1.2

July 3, 2020

New features

  • Ability to skip database backup when updating When updating the software, the user can now skip the PostgreSQL database backup to improve update speed.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue with the webproxy.conf proxy_pass URL

    When updating the software, the proxy_pass URL for the webproxy.conf NGINX configuration was always reverted back to https://127.0.0.1:8002. This has now been resolved.

v3.1.1

June 28, 2020

As of version 3.1.0, we're removing fixed charges (or: interval-based charges) because of the limited amount of use cases and low customer adoption with this feature. In case you are an Exivity customer and are still using this service parameter, please reach out to support@exivity.com so we can provide you with alternative solutions.

New features

  • Improved auditing when managing accounts manually Added a number of new audit points when performing manual account management

  • Auditing token creation correctly logs client IP address when API is behind a proxy server

  • Updating user profile information now requires providing the current password

  • Implemented current password validation A user is now required to enter his/her current password before any changes to its profile are applied

  • Added logging audit entries for metadata, service subscriptions, and budgets

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue where some users could select budgets even if it would not contain any details

  • Fixed an issue which sometimes caused the workflows screen to load for a long time A resource-intensive operation that ran whenever the workflow page is visited got removed

  • When the API runs out of memory (possible for very large reports) it will respond with a descriptive message

  • Incorrect display of minimum_commit_delta_charge and minimum_commit_delta_quantity When a minimum commit quantity was set for a service rate revision, the resulting charges could show up incorrectly by having the quantity and minimum commit delta swapped on the reports

v3.0.5

May 26, 2020

Bug fixes

  • Fixed issue at /lookups where in specific cases an error was undefined

  • Fixed issue where user was shown an incorrect validation warning When providing a number with more then one decimal, the user interface would show an error message. This has been resolved.

  • Added cache check in partial preparation There was an issue that partial preparation code didn't check for cache table presence before analysis, which caused execution errors, and it has been fixed.

  • Fixed escape option behaviour in 'import' There was an error that '\"' sequence was always treated as escaped quoted even when 'escape' option switched off (default), it has been fixed.

  • Rate revision date never changes Transcript was trying to change rate revision date when it detects an attempt to create new revision with the same attributes but earlier date, which conflicted with database constraint, so it was removed in order to avoid execution errors.

  • Fixed issue where line breaks were not shown When providing an address for the summary report with multiple new lines, only the first would be shown. This has been resolved.

  • Fixed undefined tool tip at workflows The was a column which showed a tool tip with undefined as value. This has been resolved.

  • Select a single date for transformer run After introduction of a new calendar, the single date selection was missing. This has now been resolved.

v3.0.4

April 30, 2020

New features

  • New feature: Subscriptions When Beta features are enabled, users can now create one-off and recurring daily, monthly or yearly subscriptions for services for which a metered data source is not available.

  • New feature: Workflows widget When Beta features are enabled, a new Workflow traffic-light widget will be shown on the main Dashboard page.

  • New feature: Global Variables When Beta features are enabled, users can now manage Global Variables under System Administration. This enables users to decouple Extractor and Transformer variable values from scripts thus supporting different values on a per Exivity instance basis without changing underlying scripts.

  • New feature: Metadata for Services Metadata can now be added to all services just like with accounts. Define a metadata definition first, then attach the definition to a dataset in Data pipelines > Datasets. All services in this dataset will now use this set of metadata fields. Metadata information itself can be added and modified in Services > Overview and is available in the services reports.

  • Increased rounding of set to match calculate statement The Transformer set and calculate statemets now have had their rounding precision increased to 12 decimal places.

  • Added more information to the summary report The summary report now contains the following additional columns: service_key, account keys (between 1 and 5 inclusive depending on the report), start_date, end_date. These columns are also included in CSV exports.

  • Improved quoting in exported CSVs To avoid potential complications with Excel, any cell values in CSVs exported from Exivity that are not numbers and begin with any of the characters =,+,- or @ are now preceded with a single quote.

  • A new setting has been added to allow users to stay logged in. If disabled (default), users need to log in each time they open Exivity in their browser.

  • Administrators can now set the token lifetime. When the token lifetime expires, users need to log in again.

  • Added ability for users to log out of all devices.

  • Mitigated a potential security issue (internal reference EXVT-3457)

  • Mitigated a potential security issue (internal reference: EXVT-3455)

  • Mitigated a potential security issue (internal reference EXVT-3270)

  • Implemented a new charge model for monthly services The charge for a monthly services may now be based on the usage of a specific day in the month.

  • Improvements in report performance Reports are now pre-loaded in the database which speeds up report loading times in the GUI.

  • Added support for LDAP authentication LDAP authentication was available as beta feature already, and is now generally available. A guide will be added to our documentation soon. Configuration options are available in the Settings screen (Single sign-on tab).

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue with manage_metadata_definitions Granting the "Manage Metadata" permission is now possible when creating a security group

  • Fixed an edge case for incorrect net value on accounts table Whenever cogs or charge had 0 as value the net value wouldn't be displayed correctly on the details table of the accounts report.

  • Fixed an issue when creating a manual service Manual per unit cogs type services will not require cogs column

  • Fixed invalid format issue metadata lists Previously empty lines we're persisted as list option. Options are now trimmed and validated before persisting.

  • The API now requires additional attributes for certain service types

  • Fixed a small issue with the metadata selector in the report management screen

  • Removed toolbar from PDF export The Summary report PDF export included the toolbar on the top of every page of the PDF document. This has now been removed.

  • Fixed an Extractor XML parsing issue USE could previously fail when iterating over an empty XML node inside a foreach loop. This has now been resolved.

  • Fixed modified display issue in Accounts Overview When switching from Account Name to Account Key in the Accounts Overview screen, the modified state / pencil icon disappeared previously. This has now been resolved.

  • Fixed an issue when scrolling in the Accounts Overview When having a large amount of Accounts in a report definition, the Accounts Overview screen could generate cosmetic glitches when scrolling

  • Fixed a Transformer issue with skip_corrupted_records When import option skip_corrupted_records was set, import could fail if last column in the record is missing closing quote. This has been resolved.

  • Fixed a Transformer issue with aggregate When using the aggregate max function, Transcript could pick the wrong value.

  • Fixed a false warning about invalid COGS type in the logfile When preparing reports, in some cases a lot of warnings would appear in the logfile that state: Invalid cogs_type (0) in database for service ID nnn where "nnn" is a service ID. This was a false warning and could be ignored but looked concerning and could lead to larger logfiles. This issue has now been fixed.

  • Removed "remainder" option from lowest level accounts when setting budgets When a budget is set for an account at the deepest report level, the "remainder" option is no longer shown, as there are no sibling accounts to share the budget with.

  • Fixed an issue where (harmless) SQL errors could be logged when deleting services When deleting services, SQL errors could be present in the logfile for days where reports that reference those services had not been prepared. This has now been fixed.
