Dalet Flex 2021.5.0 (LTS) Release Notes

Dalet is excited to present the May 2021 release of Dalet Flex 2021.5.0.

This release of Dalet Flex provides the new features, quality and security enhancements, bug fixes, and other changes listed below.

Flex 2021.5 is an LTS (Long Term Supported) release track and will receive both critical bug fix updates and security updates until it reaches end-of-life.

Dalet Flex Platform

New Features

BlackPearl integration

Dalet Flex is now a certified Rio Broker client. Dalet will continue to support and make improvements to the plugin in future releases.

Save draft workflow definitions

Flex now provides the ability to save a workflow definition as a draft. Draft workflow definitions will not be used when launching new workflows, rather Flex will refer to the latest deployed version of the workflow definition.

When editing a workflow definition, users can choose between “Save” and “Save and Deploy” to either save a draft or save a new version to be used in subsequent workflow executions.

User and group role inheritance

Flex now supports inheriting permissions assigned at the user group level. If a user is a member of multiple user groups, they will inherit the aggregated list of permissions from all their groups plus the permissions directly assigned to their user.

Please note that the “Upload” permission assigned at the user group level is not currently respected in the FlexMAM. For now, please assign this permission directly to the user’s role rather than their group. This is a known issue which will be addressed in a future release.

Resource tagging

We’ve added the ability to add tags to resources to improve ease of maintenance and readability of configuration within Flex. This is especially useful when defining workflow logic to be reused across accounts. For example, an import workflow can be defined in the root account, but the actual storage resource that gets used can be different for each account that launches the workflow. Resources can have one or more tags and support the use of spring expressions for the tags to be evaluated at runtime.

Flex Satellite Nodes for distributed deployments

Flex services can now be deployed across multiple datacentres or cloud regions. A central Flex environment can send instructions to distributed Flex services to run remotely, starting with the File Processor (FFP) and Stream Processor (FSP) Services. Enabling these services for distributed deployment allows for file operations (e.g. hashing, tar-ing) and media processing (e.g. proxy creation, technical metadata extraction) without first transferring large assets back to the central Flex environment.

New Move and Copy workflow actions

New move and copy actions have been created for this release. The new actions are now based on the Flex Job Execution Framework (JEF) allowing for improved performance and compatibility with Flex Satellite Nodes. These should be used in place of the existing, legacy, move and copy actions.

Flex Premiere Panel deprecation

The Flex Premiere Panel has been deprecated in favour of the new FlexXTEND Adobe Panel. This will be the last release of Flex Premiere Panel; it will be removed in the next release.

Limits on Quota of Concurrent Workflows (new for 2021.5.1)

To provide better control over resource usage, Flex now allows you to limit the number of concurrently running workflows. You can define these quotas for the number of concurrent workflows per account type:

This quota Specifies…..
Total concurrent workflows assigned at root account level The total number of workflows that can be executing concurrently in a tenant account. The limit is set by the platform administrators in the master account. To avoid deadlock scenarios, sub workflows are not included in this quota.
Concurrent workflows of a specific type at root account level A quota on a workflow that is defined in the master account and shared to all accounts. A system administrator can set the number of concurrent workflow instances of a given workflow definition that are allowed for a given tenant account.
Concurrent workflows of a specific type at account level A quota on a workflow that is defined in a tenant account. An account administrator can set the number of concurrent workflow instances of a given workflow definition that are allowed to execute.

Support for STL Subtitles (new for 2021.5.1)

Support has been added in FMP to import STL subtitles and convert to them SRT, WebVTT, and TTML formats while dropping the styling info. Subtitle files can be imported, associated to a parent asset, converted to a compatible format, and then played back in FMP. Future releases will contain more functionality.

Improvements in Advanced Search in Flex Core UI and APIs (new for 2021.5.1)

Advanced searches performed in Flex Core UI has been improved. The Enterprise search is now powered by Flex Query Language (FQL) as used in Flex MAM.

Due to the evolution of our architecture (particularly, moving metadata from MariaDB to ArangoDB, for scalability), the traditional searching APIs on Flex Core (as used in both the Flex Core UI and, for example, the Groovy script SDK), had to evolve away from just searching MariaDB, if metadata criteria and/or free text searching was requested by the query.

  • Our initial implementation of this was relatively simple, generating and performing an FQL search just for the metadata or free text components of the search, and then postprocessing the result set with any other filter criteria in a MariaDB query. As a result, certain combinations of search criteria could erroneously return zero results (e.g. if the first page of results from the FQL search all end up being post-processed away).
  • The new implementation translates the majority of criteria - not just the metadata and free text components - into an FQL query. As a result minimal postprocessing is performed and the result sets are more reliable.

Mandatory Account Storage (new for 2021.5.1)

From Release 2021.5.1, Account Storage is mandatory for account files/images (User/UDO/Report template/Theme images) for all accounts including master account. The Consul KV accountFileVfsEnabled has also been removed.

For an existing installation, if the migration script was not run before, it must be run now as part of this release.

Vantage plugin upgrade (new for 2021.5.2)

The Flex Vantage plugin has been upgraded to support the latest version of Vantage and make use of the Flex Job Execution Framework (JEF) including a new Vantage Workflow Resource, and new Launch Vantage Workflow action plugin. The Flex integration supports intelligent retry capability, ability to cancel, restart, and monitor progress of Vantage workflows, workflow variables, multiple input assets, and import of media produced by Vantage.

Note: the integration currently supports Flex FILE assets, with additional VFS protocols coming in a future release.

FlexMAM

New Features

Search Experience

The ability to set operators and conditions in search within FlexMAM has been improved.

Search chips can now be refined with the following conditions (where appropriate): contains, is, is not, starts with, ends with, is empty, is not empty.

Groups of search chips are now colour coded to be more explicit. Users can also update operators between search filter chips that are already on the search bar.

Chips belonging to the same key (for example “Type is Video” and “Type is Image”), and taxons from the same structure will be grouped together automatically. Operators can then be changed between each group to further configure search.

Saved searches can now be shared using ACL permissions. Shared saved searches can now be found under the “Shared Searches” menu item allowing users a clearer view of their saved searches.

Thesaurus (new for 2021.5.1)

Thesaurus support enables users to map related terms within Metadata Designer. Within FlexMAM, the user can then use the Thesaurus when searching assets and when filling in metadata forms.

For search, when the user starts typing in the typeahead, they are presented with a list of matching terms that they can then choose from. This works for both searching with filter chips in advanced search, as well as table column headers. Use the Thesaurus icon to open the Thesaurus suggestion panel to find alternative related terms to use.

For metadata forms, when the user makes a selection for a field, a suggestion panel of related terms will appear, allowing them to select from the list.

Caps, spaces, and special characters can all be used within thesaurus terms.

Multiple Audio Tracks Selection and UX Improvements (new for 2021.5.1)

From Flex release 2021.5.1, you can individually select which track is enabled and previewed when you open an asset, (with HLS format), in the Manage Asset page. You can select single or multiple tracks to preview to create a mix of audio tracks directly in FlexMAM. For backward compatibility, you can disable multiple track selection whenever required. This functionality is supported for up to 16 audio tracks.

To simplify managing audio tracks, you can rename audio track names easily and you can expand/reduce the width of the audio tracks label area by simply dragging the separator between the label area and the track. Drag the playhead through an asset to change its position and the progress bar on the player jumps to the same position.

Navigate easily between waveform and clips view using the Timeline and ClipBin menu tabs above the audio tracks.

Bulk Update of Markers (new for 2021.5.1)

Improvements have been made to the way you bulk update metadata in FlexMAM. FlexMAM now supports bulk update of metadata on markers. You can use Ctrl + click to select multiple markers and then use the Edit Metadata Quick Action to perform a bulk update of marker metadata.

For all other asset types, the Quick Action menu is available whenever you select multiple assets in any listing, not just in the Bulk Assets screen. The Edit Metadata quick action can be used to bulk update metadata for all asset types.
