CSA Alert - Confirmation triggers configuration data collection
The confirmation of a CSA alert triggers the data collection of the configuration store(s) of the policy used for the alert. Thus, a following CSA alert collection uses the current configuration data.
CCDB file extractor enabled for JSON and CSV files
The file extractor reads these files and the content is stored as table store in CCDB
The new tile 'Trend Analysis' allows you to display the development of policies within a time range based on results stored in the validation storage.
In the Policy Management multiple regular (Single) Policies can be combined into Composite Policies.
CSA Container for export and import
Single Policies and Composite Policies can be exported to a packed container to the front end. The import allows an easy and quick transfer of policies to other SAP Focused Run systems.
It is now possible to assign directly a notifier and/or outbound definition to an alert.
Validation Capabilities Composite Policies can now be selected for validation. The result includes the Single Policy identifiers on check and item level.
The display option 'Display only Items that have Compliant = No' allows a reduction of data amount which must be transferred to the user interface.
Administration and framework The HANA replication operation mode is now considered when calculating the technical system status.
The framework supports 'Enqueue Replication Server' instances in the landscape.
Template Management Display of the major rapid content version.
Interoperability with Operation Control Center Drill down from Operation Control Center Dashboard to validation result details.
Improved performance of validation results by using validation aggregation interface.
Usage of Composite Policies is possible.
User interface unification
New icons for sorting, filtering and downloading.
Enhanced Validation Alerting
There is the new alert source 'Store Content Change' to get an alert in case the content of a store does change.
Alert severity can be defined by a new property.
The policy definition has now a dedicated page allowing a comfortable editing on the whole screen.
Parameter FRUN_LOCAL = TRUE allows to restrict collector items to the SAP Focused Run system itself.
Join Store now supports 'hierarchy_level=0' to allow a correct join between two different stores which refer to the same multiple instance landscape object i.e. on instance level (technical system level is not touched by this).
Check item attribute 'system_attributes' now always refer to parameters at system level. For referring to the landscape object use '-' as a prefix.
Saving a policy definition does automatically adapt the policy id and description in the XML definition.
Multiple Policy Validation allows to select multiple policies during validation execution.
Performance improvement by avoiding sub validations during navigation in the application and a dedicated database aggregation at the check item view. In addition, also results of manual validations are reused for a subsequent validation in case all managed systems have been part of this previous validation.
The application does now show the age of the validation result allowing to see if the result has been read from the Validation Storage.
Administration Template Management
Template wizard supports the creation of custom collector items for individual configuration data collection into the Configuration and Change Database.
Enhanced Validation Alerting Introduction of the Enhanced Validation Alerting. The alerts can be defined directly in the CSA application and are pushed into the Alert Management. This means that the Enhanced Validation Alerting is independent from the System Monitoring. In comparison to the CSA System Monitoring alerting, the new alerting provides the option to choose between the aggregations 'System', 'Store', 'Check' and 'Item'.
The performance of the SQL generation is improved.
Validation In the result rule texts are displayed instead of the 'no item matches..'.
For operator 'exists' or 'not_exist' the text 'item=no data' is displayed in case there is no hit.
The validation results are saved for a long term period if the policy is configured as scheduled in the Policy Maintenance. During validation, the result is read from the Validation Storage if it is not older than 24 hours. Optionally, the validation can be triggered by the ad hoc button of the user interface.
There is the class CL_COVA_VAL_API available as public API for reading aggregated data from the Validation Storage.
