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:
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.
Public cloud: You can upgrade your testing sites at any time via Oracle Cloud Portal Service Cloud Configuration Assistant. All sites will be automatically upgraded according to the published schedule.
A summary presentation of the key features and benefits in this release can also be found on OTN.
We have pushed many of the key issues resolved in 18A into a maintenance release for OPA 17D (12.2.9).
Public cloud: Production sites using OPA 17D will have this patch applied over the weekend of February 17-18.
