GA release of OPA 18A (12.2.10)

Brad Tuckett
Release Manager

The Oracle Policy Automation (OPA) team is pleased to announce that OPA Release 18A (12.2.10) is now available for both public and private cloud customers.

This release we have focused on enhancements.  The three key enhancements are:

Interview modeling enhancements

Populate lists from rules: Interview designers can now pull in the constant values used in the rules when creating screens. This speeds up screen authoring by alleviating the need to manually retype all of those values.

Populating a value list from rules in a Word document

Hub enhancements

Be warned about use of old API versions: Warnings will now be displayed in Policy Automation Hub on deployments that have used an API in the last 30 days that is due to be deleted sometime in the next 6 months. These warnings are provided so that system integrators can plan to move to a later version before the affected service is removed. Details of when the different service versions will no longer be supported can be found in the OPA documentation.

Manage API clients programmatically: Policy Automation Hub Administrators can now automate the lifecycle of end-to-end integration credentials. The OPA Hub REST API supports the management (create, view, update and delete operations) of three user types: regular users, local API client users and IDCS API client users.

    Is there a REST endpoint for Site Statistics that is viewable and downloadable from Hub Console? I would like to automate my process by being able to get the stats i need on a weekly basis that will not require me to download it manually from site. Or if you have any better suggestion to do so, it would be much appreciated.
