As of this release, the FlowHeater Server Manager supports copying tasks within the GUI. In addition, tasks can be exported and later imported. To avoid possible conflicts, copied and imported tasks are initially marked “deactivated”. Using the “Multi-Select” option it is possible to import or export more than one task at the same time. Tip: Among other things, this makes it relatively easy to create backups of existing server tasks.
As of this version FlowHeater supports the dynamic inclusion of FlowHeater Parameters from a Parameter file. The Parameter file, which needs to be in UTF-8 format, is read dynamically before each run and FlowHeater Parameters are preassigned with the values defined within it.
In the Designer, a static parameter file can be specified using “Menu ->Edit->Parameters”. The Batch Module further supports dynamic replacement of the default with the option “/ParameterFile filename”.
Any number of FlowHeater Parameters can be entered in a Parameter file. One Parameter can be assigned per line e.g. "Parameter name = value”. A detailed description of the structure of the Parameter file can be found under the Batch Module help.
As of this version, processing steps can be copied and deactivated. As copied processing steps are intermediately saved in the clipboard, processing steps can be copied from any other Definition. It is now also possible to disable warnings arising from individual processing steps.
This version introduces an automatic ODBC driver fallback for the Access Adapter if no suitable OleDB driver is found.
