What's new - iCIS Cloud v4.2.5

This topic provides an overview of the more significant changes in iCore Integration Suite v4.2.5 (Cloud edition).


Large Event / Job argument values

Large Event / Job argument values can now be displayed in the Administrator tool. See View the arguments of a Job.

Authentication and authorization

Enable/Disable authentication with Open ID Connect (OIDC)

Authentication with Open ID Connect (OIDC) can now be enabled or disabled for the iCore system. This can be done in System settings in the Administrator or with the Set-iCoreAuthenticationProvider cmdlet.

User authorization with Azure AD

Users can now be authorized via Azure AD instead of via User groups in the iCore system. Users and their group memberships can be administered directly in Azure. In order to use authorization with Azure AD, the iCore system has to be configured with an Azure AD provider. Authorization in Azure AD requires that authentication is set up with OpenID Connect in Azure.

For more information, see Authorization with Azure AD.

User authorization with Azure AD for Administrator

The Administrator now supports user authorization via Azure AD by managing users and groups in Azure instead of in the local configuration. Using this feature requires that you configure an Azure AD as OpenID Connect provider, as well as an Azure AD provider, in combination with role mappings against Azure AD groups.

For more information, see Configuring authorization using an Azure AD provider.


New System Event type – ServerPartFaulted

A new System Event type (__iCore_ServerPartFaulted) is now available. An Event of this type is created when a Server part enters a faulted state, and can be used to set up alarms that notify the administrator of the system.


The Categories property is no longer visible in the entity properties view in the Administrator GUI. To ensure backwards compatibility, it is still available as a read-only property on the entity in the iCore Public API.

  • Entities can be added to or removed from a Category in the entity details view (as before).
  • Adding or removing an entity from a Category no longer affects the modified date of the entity.

Component definitions

Component definition locks

Component definitions can now be locked to prevent other Users from making changes to it. The feature is a useful for example when you want to prevent multiple Users from simultaneously editing the same Component definition. A locked Component definition cannot be edited, overwritten (through an import or otherwise), or compiled and can only be unlocked by the User who locked it or an Administrator with the “Release other User’s lock” permission.

For more information, see Component definitions.

SSL/TLS configuration

Sending and receiving email now has added configuration options for SSL/TLS. You can specify which SSL/TLS versions to support when establishing secure connections to SMTP and POP3 servers in the following objects / activities:

TLS 1.3

TLS 1.3 is now available as an option when configuring an SSL connection in the following objects / activities:


After upgrading to version 4.2.5, there is a risk that existing mail and http clients that use SSL/TLS will stop working. For more information, see Backwards compatibility.

SFTP Key Exchange (KEX)

A new parameter Initialize KEX is available that can be used to resolve issues with some SFTP servers which expect the client to initialize the key exchange (KEX). Applies to:
