See a full list of changes and upgrades There will be no impact on your current workload.
Here are some additional features that will be included in V4:
- Staging Environment – provides a safe workspace for testing the compatibility of a new Rules Engine configuration with mock site traffic.
- Drafts – consist of one or more rules meant to identify requests and the set of actions that will be applied to them. A draft is a work in progress that allows frequent configuration updates without affecting site traffic.
- Policies – Create, store and manage multiple variants of your rules. Roll back to a previously deployed version. Prepare event-specific rules in advance (e.g. a rule that redirects traffic as a result of a customer origin maintenance.)
- Deploy requests – provide a simple and streamlined procedure through which a policy may be quickly applied to the Staging or Production environment. A history of deploy requests is provided to facilitate the tracking of changes applied to those environments.
- Independent Conditional Expressions – A rule’s match conditions may now be configured to be mutually exclusive (i.e. select first match) or independent (i.e. match).
- Supplemental Portal update – new user interface that makes it easier to set up rules. No limit on total number of allowed rules. No limit on the total number of matches and features within a rule.
