Enhancements and known issues resolved


Data Tree

In case of conflict during the creation of a new data object from the context menu of the "Structure" container (e.g. Add Simulation Model), the system automatically proceeds with the spin-up option.

Data Model

Added support for rule-based generation of the file extension for the files of DM Items and Rich Library (e.g. request extension .nas for the files of Subsystems with File Type=Nastran and .k for the files of Subsystems with File Type = LsDyna).

Process Design / Execution

Added protection for the accidental removal of required/mandatory launching options through the Application Settings of Application Nodes.

Scripting API

Add the script function localFileReader.fileExists that checks the existence of a file in a network path, utilizing the mechanism that bypasses the SMB client side caching (on Windows clients).

Script Actions

The name of the running script action and the id of the selected data object are now displayed in the list of running tasks (appears at the bottom right corner), during the execution of a script action.

Users Management - Security

Add the ability to import Linux/Unix users from a passwd file.

Known issues resolved

Data Management

Fail to save subsystem if the backslash character (" \ ") was used in the value of any of its attributes.

Process Design / Execution

Suppress erroneous error messages that could pop-up in the Notification Center during process execution.

File output slot could not be released when the file already existed in the target path.

Script API

Fix the failure of function dm.downloadFileById during downloading files that already exist in the target path.

Script Actions

Fix error that occurred when trying to export a Script Action that references a file that resides on the local filesystem.

Script API for Eclipse

Fix invalid reference to SPDRM Client libraries when editing SPDRM scripts in Eclipse.
