Flux Workload Automation Announces the Release of Version 7.11.3
Today, Flux, a leading cross-platform workload automation and managed file transfer solution, has released Flux version 7.11.3. The notable improvements provide IT Operations new functionality, visibility, and quick changes — all from the dashboard that Flux calls the Operation Console.
Designed for the needs of operations staff, the web-based Operations Console provides the ability to monitor jobs, workflows, and file transfers with a single point of control. The Flux Operations Console uses automated, asynchronous, Ajax-style technology to keep the browser window updated with the status of all Flux activities, automatically updated in near real-time.
New in Flux version 7.11.3 is the ability to test configurations and connections from the Operations Console by simply clicking a single test button. "This speeds up the testing process of FTP, Secure FTP, and FTP over SSL connection problems significantly," stated Nick McDonald, Flux Technical Support Manager. "You no longer have to wait to run the engine to see if your connection is solid. When there is an error, Flux also delivers a more detailed error message so action can be taken to get back on track," he continued.
Continuing to bring more user-friendly features at the Operations Console level, Flux has made it easier to map LDAP/AD security roles and permissions. LDAP servers store users and their passwords and group details. When security and permissions need to be changed, it isn’t always practical to wait for a developer to write custom code which, at times, can be cumbersome and error prone. This can also lead to double entry, additional errors, and time consuming steps for all parties.
Instead, Flux has made the process easier by allowing changes to be made in fewer steps and less time. Now accessible to the operations staff through the Operations Console, staff can configure Flux to communicate with their own organization's LDAP/AD server and, without a single line of code, make changes. This saves valuable time, resources, and reduces the chance of LDAP/AD security permission errors.
