During several last sprints, the Design Room ONE team has been working on various improvements and enhancements in Authentication functionality. The latest Design Room ONE 2.0 2020.16, which is a part of HCL RTist, brings multiple important updates.

First, we simplified the installation and configuration procedure significantly by introducing Docker support. Now, with a fewer commands, users can get Keycloak, NodeJS, Mongo running and connected, watch the demo video or check the detailed instruction on GitHub to learn more.

Second, authentication is no longer blocking running reports against models published on the Design Room ONE server; updated instructions cover the necessary configuration steps. Before running a report, a user needs to enable Basic authentication scheme in Design Room ONE server settings, and after that provide necessary credentials when configuring the Data Source in the reporting tool, as shown below.

Third, automated publishing scenarios, when for example a new version of the model gets published to server each time it is updated in the repository now also support authentication. Two new attributes user and password were introduced to specify the credentials to be used during automated publishing process.

And finally, multiple improvements were made to publishing wizard. If the Allow insecure connection checkbox is checked, it will also permit communication with Keycloak server, even if its HTTPS certificate cannot be verified, this comes handy for example when the default self-signed certificate is used in Keycloak deployment. Another improvement can be observed when connecting to a Design Room ONE server takes noticeable time, e.g. because of network delays. Now users are notified on the operation being performed in the header section of the Export wizard window.

HCL RTist Development Team Announces RTist 11.1 for Download
The RTist development team has been busy finalizing RTist 11.1, and today we are happy to announce its general availability for download. The full version number is 11.1 2021.16, and at the same time we also release 11.0 2021.16, which is planned to be the last delivery on the 11.0 release track. All new features in the 11.0 release are also present in the 11.1 release. The only exception is the OneTest Embedded integration which we will make available in the next release of RTist 11.1 (expected to arrive mid-June). Let's have a look at the new features. Code Preview It's now possible to get a preview of what generated code will look like for an individual model element. This feature can be used for understanding how changes made in the model will affect the generated code. It can also be used as a means to compare two versions of a model at code level. Simply generate a code preview for each of the model element versions and compare them. You can also use this feature on transformation configurations to get a preview of all code and/or make files that it will generate. This can be of great help for troubleshooting build problems and to compare versions of an RTist application at code level.     OneTest Embedded Integration The integration with HCL OneTest Embedded allows you to compute and visualize the run-time coverage of state machines in your application. For example, it can be used for finding states and transitions of a state machine that are not covered by current tests. In this release a number of usability improvements were made, in particular in the Model Coverage viewer. For example, you can now choose to show coverage graphically in only some of the state chart diagrams.     Again, remember that...
