Cloud Application Manager

Application Lifecycle Management

New Azure Government provider type

Cloud Application Manager now supports a new type of provider to manage Azure Government subscriptions. With this new provider type, users can create and manage Azure Government resources in its defined subscription, in the same way, they create and manage resources in a regular Azure subscription. The Azure Government provider type is currently supported for BYO scenarios in all US Azure Government regions.

Support for aborting running event scripts

Application Lifecycle Management now supports to abort running event scripts. When an instance is in "Processing" state and it is executing an event script, a new option "Abort" will appear under the three dots button in the instance details page to allow the user to abort the event script being executed and leave the instance in an unavailable state. This allows the user to recover the control of an instance stuck in a script execution not returning the control to Cloud Application Manager and fix the issue before retrying to run the event script.

New option to specify public box visibility

Application Lifecycle Management now includes a new field to specify how the user wants to publish a box. In the request to publish a box dialog, a new field "Visibility Type" was added to specify whether the box should be published as:

  1. Open: box will be made public as open-source
  2. Execute: box will be made public as execute-only, so it will only be deployable and only public variables will be visible.
  3. Closed: box will be used to embed into other boxes as box variables, but event code will be hidden. Only public variables will be visible.
New CloudFormation type supported

Application Lifecycle Management now supports an additional CloudFormation type to be used in CloudFormation template boxes. This additional type is:
"AWS::EC2::CapacityReservation". The user can now use this new resource types in the template definition of any CloudFormation template box or update the template file of any existing template instance adding this type of resource and reconfigure the instance to use it.

Support for new Google Cloud Platform region
