1.70.0 - September 3, 2020

New in 1.70

syslib Interface

The built-in system:inmation Lua library that was formerly accessible from Lua scripts via the global variable inmation, is now accessible via the global variable syslib.

The legacy "inmation" variable has been retained for backward compatibility.

The legacy variable will be deprecated in a future version. We recommend that our customers start migrating their systems to the syslib interface and provide feedback to help us ensure a smooth transition in future.
We recommend that existing scripts should be examined for the presence of global or local variables named "syslib". If "syslib" causes compatibility issues, such as a clash with an identically named variable in an existing script, which are not readily resolvable by changing the script, please contact Support.
Security Perimeter

The new Security Perimeter Class offers a superior way to assign security contexts to any objects that execute Lua scripts. The legacy security context assignment to script-bearing object continues to work as before when Security Perimeters are not in use.

The legacy mode will be deprecated in a future version. We recommend that our customers start migrating their systems to the Security Perimeter mode and provide feedback to help us ensure a smooth transition in future.

Improved in 1.70

Batch Tracker and Production Tracking Store

General improvements.

New additions and improvements to the Batch Tracker
  • More detailed information within tracked batches, operations, phases and steps (this includes e.g. starttime and endtime).

  • Modified isa88 structure, where batches include uniprocedures, operations, equipment phases and equipment steps, with datasets referring to these elements.

  • Embedded trends can be assigned to batches, operation, phases and steps.

  • New output format for the WebAPI, with the query parameter "format=batchtree" results are transferred into a structural json resembling the data visible in the diagnostics section of the Batchtrackers faceplate.
