exMon 5.1 has two major improvements and several smaller improvements and bug fixes.

Data Transfer packages

The main new feature of exMon is the introduction of Data Transfer packages. This feature reduces reliance on third party components to handle simple data transfer.

Data Transfer packages use data providers as the source and destination of the transfer with column mapping between the two data sources.

Powershell Query Task

Query tasks are a niche feature in exMon that allows the developer to create actions after a query has been executed.

exMon 5.1 adds the Powershell Query Task to the type of actions that can be used, which allows an even greater customization.

Process Gantt Chart

A new addition to the exMon process emails is a gantt chart that shows an overview of the process execution, how long each step took to finish, what failed and what did not run.

This feature should work well in combination with the process map to show a clear status of the process but will also allow the developer a more in-depth view of things such as execution bottlenecks.

Global System Parameters

Global parameters were released with exMon 4.9 and have been a great addition to the exMon system. With exMon 5.1 we are adding system parameters to the functionality of the global parameters, where the exMon developer can now use these parameters in their task to access ids used by the exMon execution.

Currently there are four Global system parameters, {$__ExecId}, {$__RemoteExecId}, {$__SystemId} and {$__UserId}.

Further details can be found under Global Parameters

Other improvements

  • On the portal, a task with parameters will now have the run button enabled if a default parameter value is set
  • Tasks that have never been deployed will send a notification email when executed
  • Service email in configuration will now only receive more critical exMon emails, rather than all emails
  • Execution history in exMon Administrator now allows user to view execution log
  • Email history now properly renders images contained in emails
  • Process Queue now allows user to select/terminate multiple executions at the same time

 

Bug fixes

  • When an execution of package inside an object group with execution connection set was terminated, object group would sometimes continue
  • exMon properly cleans up execution details after timeout
  • Exception Overview no longer shows tasks with open exceptions after exception manager has been disabled
  • In exMon Administrator, pressing enter with task focused inside Object Explorer now opens the task
