Summary of Features released in b1908

Component Reference Number Description Configuration Type Feature Group Related KBA
LOD-SF-LMS-CON LRN-55962 Previously, the connector used to display only the count of records that were tagged for insert/update/delete.
The reason to tag a record for insert or delete operation is straightforward.
But, for the update scenario several entities are involved and this results in delta-tagging.
We have now introduced an additional connector-log entry that captures the primary cause of delta-tagging.
The admin can now see the distribution of entities that caused the records to be tagged for an update operation.
Universal Connectors 2824832
LOD-SF-LMS-CON LRN-55961 Admin can now view the warnings/errors of any connector execution in progress,
and take corrective actions immediately instead of waiting for the connector-run to finish.
This option is available under the View-Results along with the Current-Connector status.
As part of the connector logs the admin can now see correlation between the fields processed,
as part of the input file versus the field mapping in the connector configuration.
Also, the logs display configuration changes that may affect the current connector run.
Universal Connectors 2824832
LOD-SF-LMS-NOT LRN-38641 Some of the Notification Syntax Tag descriptions for Learning overdue and Learning expiration
have been updated to enable the admin to distinguish them easily.
Universal Notifications 2825534
LOD-SF-LMS-CON LRN-32076 Before Q3 2019, the completions for the imported learning history connector were inadvertently published through
the learning completion event publishing feature. With this update, learning history completions are no longer part of the
published learning events.
You can obtain this data directly from its external sources.
