Performance and Response Time Improvements
Overall Myst response improved by up to 90x. We reduce the number of unnecessary SQL queries resulting in:
- Improved all page load times - Most pages load within seconds as opposed to 10+ seconds or minutes
- Minimized hourly CPU spike - Hourly executions of Release Pipelines reduced from minutes to a second thus reducing CPU time
This improvement deserves a special thanks to Rob de Haan (Rabobank) who was pragmatic and cooperative in working through the issues to achieve a successful outcome.
Security Salt and Hash
We revamped security by changing password encryption to a salt and hash. The salt is randomly generated on startup if no existing salt is found. See documentation.
In operational support you may need logs stored in a centralized location. Myst now supports managing a centralized log location for:
- OHS log
- Domain, AdminServer and Managed Server .log, .out, -diagnostic.log
- Domain, AdminServer, and Managed Server log rotation properties
- NodeManager logs
- ODI agent logs
Enable with a WebLogic parameter with centralised Brtish English spelling because this feature was proudly implemented by our New Zealand developer. =)

AppDynamics Monitoring for WebLogic
We recently worked with a customer to automate the configuration of the AppDynamics monitoring agent into WebLogic and have left the discussion open to other monitoring tools.
Want other monitoring tools added? Let us know in the Myst Support portal.
Improvements to Post Deployment UI
Did you know you can pass Myst properties (json format) to a Jenkinsjob? The payload contains platform instance and stream model properties.
The Post Deployment Action UI was inverted from 'Exclude Properties' to 'Include Properties'. The jsonpayload (containing myst properties) is:
- Passed to Jenkins when Platform Instance or Stream Model options are selected
- Not passed to Jenkins when no options are selected
Jenkins Configuration as Code (JCaC) for Myst Plugin
Support for Jenkins Configuration as Code (JCAC)! You can now manage the Myst plugin configuration for Jenkins. Useful for automating the provisioning of Jenkins instances.
Oracle Fusion Middleware 18.104.22.168.0
