Diplomat MFT 9.1 Release Notes


*************** IMPORTANT ****************

  1. Diplomat MFT v9 and higher will NOT RUN with an older license file. If you are not sure if you have the proper license file, please contact Coviant Software for assistance.
  2. Upgrading directly from versions prior to 7.3 is not supported. Please contact Coviant Software before proceeding.
  3. All Diplomat Remote Agent sites MUST BE UPGRADED when upgrading from versions prior to 9.1.


New and Added

  • v9.1 introduces a new transaction type: Synchronization. You can now specify a source folder that is replicated to one or more destinations, using any transport protocol supported by Diplomat MFT, to keep all those destinations in sync with the source folder. This is perfect for replication tasks like updating web farms with new content, or distribution tasks. A perfect option for those looking to replace Repliweb. (Enterprise Only)
  • v9.1 expands the Transaction (Inbound and Outbound) to support multiple destinations for a single set of source files. Now you can easily define a single transaction to move files to all the destinations you wish (each using whatever transport protocol is supported by Diplomat MFT), without requiring linked transactions or scripting agents called in the post-transaction custom process. (Enterprise Only)
  • Diplomat MFT v9.1 enhances the Source File matching configuration to include intuitive configuration for choosing case sensitivity, regular expressions, recursive matching, and the choice of specifying INCLUDE or EXCLUDE matching. (Standard and Enterprise)
  • Diplomat MFT v9.1 updates the Folder Monitor transaction scheduling choice to allow for recursive monitoring — now files added to subfolders of the monitored folder can trigger the transaction execution. (Standard and Enterprise)
  • Diplomat MFT v9.1.1 introduces support for the Edge Gateway. The ability to act as an SFTP Server is further enhanced by the Edge Gateway residing in the DMZ to receive incoming connections from external clients so that Diplomat MFT may be retained in the protected internal network without ever being exposed to direct connections from potential threat actors.
  • Added queryTimeout for SQL transactions
