Parallel Blocks Execution

To save time when executing heavy flows, Pliant can now run blocks in parallel using:

  • Parallel Repeat

  • Parallel Foreach

The number of concurrent execution for these blocks can be limited

Repeat Metablock

A new function is added to flows where something needs to be repeated a number of times

SAML Authentication Improvements

When using SAML authentication, you can now make role mappings and also assign a set of default role

Radius Authentication

In addition to Pliant internal authentication, LDAP, and SAML 2.0, Pliant now also supports RADIUS server login requests to make users’ login experience better. A set of default roles can also be assigned

Object Editor Improvements

  • Syntax highlighting is persistent when you are viewing even without editing - to let you spot important pieces easily

  • Full screen mode for function blocks is added - to give you room to edit

  • Array items type checking is added

Log Trimming

To save disk space, Pliant now has this new feature which allows for old logs to be removed after a given number of days

Under the hood

  • It is now even faster to deploy Pliant as a fresh installation because of some DB migration improvements

  • There is no longer local storage dependency for cloud environments when deployed on GKE cluster

  • Bug fixes and stability improvements where needed
