What we’re working on for SeUM…

Product Manager

With the official release of WPM 2.0 the WPM team is working hard to generate several new and exciting features including:

  • Windows Server 2012 support
  • Allow Amazon Micro Instances to be Created from within SeUM
  • Improve WPM Player Job Scheduling to spread jobs out more evenly
  • Improve Client Certificate Authentication Handling by Distributing the Certificate as part of the Recording
  • Leverage the FQDN or IP address entered by the user to connect to the WPM Server for all activities required for communicating with the server such as assigning recordings to players.
  • Improve the WPM Recorder Upgrade Experience to be a hands off, mandatory process that preserves settings
  • WPM Supports Custom Properties for assigned transactions
  • WPM will support user auditing
  • The WPM Recorder will respect account limitations defined by the Orion Administrator
  • Include recording description in the Transaction Details resource
  • WPM will inherit the Availability Statistics used by NPM/SAM/etc for WPM Transactions
  • WPM Supports Credentials Management for transactions with a Credentials Library similar to SAM.

PLEASE NOTE:  We are working on these items based on this priority order, but this is NOT a commitment that all of these enhancements will make the next release.  We are working on a number of other smaller features in parallel. If you have comments or questions on any of these items (e.g. how would it work?) or would like to be included in a preview demo, please let us know!

Looks amazing...can't wait!

My top pick on this list is Scheduled Maintenance.  I can't put this tool into production and send alerts to our oncall pager until I can prevent alerts for regularly scheduled maintenance that currently cause the transaction to fail.

Level 9

Any ETA on new version?

We can't comment on release dates but we should have a beta available soon.

Is there to be an upgrade path from 1.5 or 1.5.1 to the newer version?   If so, what is the expected level of effort for the upgrade? Thx.

Users will be able to upgrade from 1.x, 1.5, or 1.5.1 to the next version when it's released. The upgrade process will be as simple and straightforward as upgrading any Orion product. It will be essentially the same process as installing for the first time but all the answers are pre-populated for you. Simply clicking next through the installer and configuration wizard should be sufficient.

Waterfall, Maintenance Window, and also some type of "If" statement for popup handling.  The popups such as surveys from ForeSee.

Will we see a beta soon?

Darn, unfortunately I am not a SeUM cusotmer.  Just NPM, SAM, NCM, IPAM, LEM and Engineers Toolset.

Sorry you should've receive an email invite from me about an hour ago. Please let me know if you haven't received it and I'll resend.

Level 10

Thanks got your email will give it a try when I get back to works next week.

Already posted another feature request which I guess would now need to be a 2.1 feature

Can't wait, I am losing sleep over credential management.  This one alone is causing me major pains.
