CMOD v10.5 Announced
« on: March 10, 2020, 02:55:05 PM »
CMOD v10.5 was announced today, availability via Passport Advantage Online is expected Friday March 13th.

There are two separate announcements for z/OS and Multiplatforms:

z/OS:  http://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/ShowDoc.wss?docURL=/common/ssi/rep_ca/9/897/ENUS220-059/index.html&lang=en&request_locale=en

CMOD v10.5 on z/OS highlights:
  • REST Services APIs. Content Manager OnDemand for z/OS includes REST Services APIs along with regular Java APIs (OnDemand Web Enablement Kit). REST Services APIs offer a simplified interface for integrating enterprise applications that need to interface with Content Manager OnDemand by using HTTP-based stateless protocol.
  • Support for object storage from multiple vendors. In addition to traditional on-premises file-system-based storage, Content Manager OnDemand for z/OS now supports different types of object storage, such as IBM Cloud Object Storage, Amazon AWS S3, Hitachi Content Platform and Microsoft Azure object storage.
  • Immutable object storage with IBM Cloud Object Storage and Hitachi Content Platform. Content Manager OnDemand for z/OS helps preserve your content and uses write once read many (WORM) configuration of IBM Cloud Object Storage or Hitachi Content Platform to protect data against deletion or modifications until the end of a specified retention period.
  • HTML5 line data viewer with graphical annotation. With the deprecation of applet-based technologies, a modern HTML5-based line data viewer with graphical annotation capability is available for use with IBM Content Navigator to view and annotate line data content in Content Manager OnDemand for z/OS.
  • Single sign-on for IBM Content Navigator. When IBM Content Navigator is configured for use with Content Manager OnDemand for z/OS, single sign-on capability can be enabled.
  • LDAP sync tool is included to help automate synchronization of changes in users and groups definitions in corporate directory servers into Content Manager OnDemand for z/OS.

CMOD v10.5 on Multiplatforms highlights:
  • REST Services APIs. Content Manager OnDemand for Multiplatforms now includes REST Services APIs along with regular Java APIs (OnDemand Web Enablement Kit). REST Services APIs offer a simplified interface for integrating enterprise applications that need to interface with Content Manager OnDemand by using HTTP-based stateless protocol.
  • Management of content encryption keys in external management server that is compliant with OASIS Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP). For improved security and centralized management of encryption keys, enterprises typically use a key management server. Content Manager OnDemand for Multiplatforms now supports KMIP. Content Manager OnDemand for Multiplatforms can be configured with IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager.
  • Azure object storage. Content Manager OnDemand for Multiplatforms supports object storage from multiple vendors such as IBM Cloud Object Storage, Amazon AWS S3, and Hitachi Content Platform. The choice of object storage is further expanded with support for Azure object storage.
  • Immutable object storage with IBM Cloud Object Storage and Hitachi Content Platform. Content Manager OnDemand for Multiplatforms helps preserve your content and uses write once read many (WORM) configuration of IBM Cloud Object Storage or Hitachi Content Platform to protect data against deletion or modifications until the end of a specified retention period.
  • HTML5 line data viewer with graphical annotation. With the deprecation of applet-based technologies, a modern HTML5-based line data viewer with graphical annotation capability is available for use with IBM Content Navigator to view and annotate line data content in Content Manager OnDemand for Multiplatforms.
  • Single sign-on for IBM Content Navigator. When IBM Content Navigator is configured for use with Content Manager OnDemand for Multiplatforms, single sign-on capability can be enabled.
  • LDAP sync tool is included to help automate the synchronization of changes in users and groups definitions in corporate directory servers into Content Manager OnDemand for Multiplatforms.

LDAP sync tool is included to help automate the synchronization of changes in users and groups definitions in corporate directory servers into Content Manager OnDemand for Multiplatforms.

Wasn't LDAP Sync made available in version 10.1.0.2?  We are upgrading to v10.1 and intend to use this feature....  From the LDAP Sync redbook:

Quote
Prior to Version 10.1.0.2, Content Manager OnDemand only supported authentication to LDAP.

Content Manager OnDemand V10.1.0.2 introduces a new command (ARSLSYNC) which can be configured to run as either a Windows scheduled task, a Unix cron job, or manually from a properly configured Content Manager OnDemand command prompt.

It was...  We'll have to wait for the documentation in order to figure out if there have been any substantial changes / improvements.

It's the same as what came out in 10.1.0.2.

This was mentioned prominentlly in the announcement because anyone at 10.1.0.1 or before might not be aware of the function that came out via the service stream.

CMOD v10.1 to v10.5
« Reply #4 on: July 12, 2021, 07:54:36 AM »
We are planning on getting CMOD 10.5 up on our test system and was wondering if anyone has any tips or advice for this upgrade?  A checklist of things to look out for or a heads up on issues you had. Does the data structure from 10.1 carry over to 10.5?

Thanks in advance,
Mark

The 10.1 -> 10.5 should be relatively painless.  You have the readme in hand, right?  No database table changes.
