Toggle 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.

Several new improvements and bug fixes

Bug Fixes

  • FC-6324 - [#386004] - Fixed a bug where the Platform Blueprint upgrade wizard would not allow upgrading blueprints created in 5.x.x. Users with 5.x.x blueprints must select a Product Catalog when upgrading.
    FC-6442 - [#386072] - Fixed a bug where Myst correctly applies database persistence for users with database persistence set in OFMW 12.2.1.3 and 12.2.1.4.0
  • FC-5409 - [#1183] - Fixed provision failure when the WeblogicPluginEnabled (domain level) was set
  • FC-6414 - [#386061] - Added 12.2.1.4 to catalog so it is selectable in the dropdown (so users don't need to select RAW and enter the version).
  • FC-6350 - [#386021] - Fixed a bug where users could not delete hosts from Infrastructure Provider because Myst would incorrectly check if hosts were in use
  • FC-6429 - Fixed a bug where honorOMF dataload schema password uses db-sys-password but should use db-password
  • FC-6441 - AWS RDS fix. Fixed a bug where the db sys role was being passed to AWS RDS causing drop-db-sessions to fail.

    FC-6284 - Added an option for EBS volume DeleteOnTermination for AWS on-demand provider
  • FC-6436 - Myst can now use its own java version using a global variable. Define the absolute path to the java binary. `myst.java=/u01/app/jdk1.8/bin/java`
    FC-6444 - Added support for passing java arguments to myst cli. Use a global variable: `myst.opts=-Xms1024m -Xmx1024m`. The default arguments are used if undefined.
  • FC-6455 - Added Jenkinsfile support for the myst plugin Added Jenkins configure as code (JCaC) support for the myst plugin Support for pomFileOverride in cases when using a workflowjob and the Jenkinsfile plugin (and you want to customise which POM file to discover)
    FC-6432 - Added support for centralised logging `core.product[weblogic].param[log-centralised-directory]=/u01/app/logs/`
