v4.1.3

RELEASE DATE: 3 January 2022

This topic provides information on enhancements, bug fixes, deprecated features, and minor functionality changes for version 4.1.3 of the Tetra Empower Agent.

Enhancements (New Features and Functionality)
There are no new enhancements for this version of the Tetra Empower Agent.

Bug Fixes

  • AG-1110 - Empower Agent - Support Extracting Message Center Data with Empower 3 SR3/FR5
    Empower SR3+/FR5 non-experimental message center data can now be extracted.

  • AG-1148 - Empower Agent - S3 Direct upload creates Inconsistent File Path for Raw injection without Sample Set in S3 bucket as GDC/CDC
    Previously, if you used GDC to upload a file without a sample set and then used S3 to upload the file again - the Tetra Data Platform treated it as two completely different files instead of two versions of the same file. With this fix, even if you upload the file several times using GDC and S3, the Tetra Data Platform treats the files as different versions of the same file.

  • AG-1212 - Empower Agent - Project Status: 207 - Project Login Invalid User/Password in TetraScience
    Under certain circumstances, such as when reauthentication is required, Empower generates log in errors. Many of these errors are transitory and are quickly resolved by Empower. Previously, these types of errors remained in the log. To declutter the log, if these error types are resolved, they are now removed from the log.

  • AG-1267 - Empower Agent - Project Structure incorrect and AG-976 - Empower Agent - Project Structure is not shown correctly
    When a new project is detected, the Tetra Empower Agent displays it under its parent project in the Management Console.'

  • AG-1358 Empower Agent - Fix the decimal data conversion issue when deployed to host machine whose OS culture setting is not en-US
    The agent now correctly converts numbers that use culture-specific formatting. For example, the number 10,00, in format of German English, is now 10.0.

v4.1.1

RELEASE DATE: 14 October 2021

This topic provides information on enhancements, bug fixes, deprecated features, and minor functionality changes for version 4.1.1 of the Tetra Empower Agent.

Enhancements (New Features and Functionality)
These enhancements were added to this version of the software:

  • Added the Generation Processor Number setting in the Agent Run Time section of the Management Console. To expedite processing time, you can use this setting to specify how many processors you want the Tetra Empower Agent to use to process injections.

  • Added the Upload Batch Size setting in the Agent Run Time section of the Management Console. This setting allows you to indicate how many files are made available for processing at a time.

  • Added the Required Free Disk Space setting in the Agent Run Time section of the Management Console. This enhancement builds upon the 4.1.0 release feature that protects against a potential extraction failure due to long interruptions in connectivity. You can use this setting to specify how much free disk space is needed before an injection is processed. When the available free space drops below this level, the processing of injections is paused. Processing resumes when the free disk space meets or exceeds the required free disk space value (for example, when processed files are uploaded to the Tetra Data Platform).

Bug Fixes

  • AG-1098: Fixed a regression related to Upload Retry functionality that allows the user to set the number of upload retries (set to 50 by default).

  • AG-1059: Fixed a bug occurring in the upgrade process, where the agent shows the oldest installed version as the latest, with this fix, the agent shows correctly the latest installed version as the latest.

Deprecated Features
There are no deprecated features for this version of the software.

Minor Functionality Changes
There are no minor functionality changes for this version of the software.

v4.1.0

RELEASE DATE: 8 September 2021

This topic provides information on enhancements, bug fixes, deprecated features, as well as minor functionality changes for version 4.1.0 of the Tetra Empower Agent.

Enhancements (New Features and Functionality)
There were several enhancements in this version of the software.

  • Added a new option to generate Empower project access and user access permission data.
  • Included the Empower database and project names from the Raw files generated by the Empower System Audit Trail, Project Audit Trail, and Message Center.
  • Added a safety measure to pause injection extraction when the output folder drive has less than 1GB storage available and resume extraction when storage is made available, e.g., via injection upload. This feature protects against potential extraction failure due to long interruptions in connectivity.

Minor Functionality Changes
The following changes were made to the Injection Raw file

  • Outputs the constant value of Pharmacopeia. The data transformation is handled in the Tetra Pipeline. The mapping is listed below:
  • 1 is mapped to US Pharmacopoeia
  • 2 is mapped to European Pharmacopoeia
  • 3 is mapped to Japanese Pharmacopoeia
  • 4 is mapped to All
  • 5 is mapped to Chinese Pharmacopoeia

v4.0.0

RELEASE DATE: 12 August 2021

This topic provides information on enhancements, bug fixes, deprecated features, as well as minor functionality changes for version 4.0.0 of the Tetra Empower Agent.

Enhancements (New Features and Functionality)
There were several enhancements in this version of the software.

  • Added new options to generate Empower non-experiment data, such as System Audit Trails, Project Audit Trails, and messages from the Message Center.
  • Added a new option to generate the Raw file without uploading them to the Tetra Data Platform.
  • Implemented a multi-processor application architecture. This improves the agent's overall performance, scalability, throughput, and reliability.

Bug Fixes
The following bug fixes were made to the agent.

  • AG-648: Empower Agent Trim the Sample Set Name when generating the Injection

Previously, if a Sample Set Name had an empty space at the end, the folder path could not be created. This is because the Sample Set Name is part of the folder path. Now, empty spaces are programmatically trimmed from the end of the Sample Set Name; so the folder path can now be created.

Deprecated Features
The following feature(s) are currently deprecated.

  • Re-upload injections has been deprecated. This feature allowed to upload previously generated injections that the user chose to save locally. The feature has been deprecated because of confusion and potential data integrity issues. Please use Rerun Project(s) instead if you need to re-upload Empower injection data into TDP.

Minor Functionality Changes
The following minor functionality changes are in this version of the software.

  • The audit trail no longer includes Empower Toolkit Login and Log Off messages. This makes the audit trail easier to review.
  • The Tetra Empower Agent now uses the sequence number rather than change date to track Project Audit Trail changes.
  • In the Management Console, the Raw Injection Reupload information has been removed because it duplicates the functionality available when the Project Rerun button is clicked.

v3.3.0

RELEASE DATE: 22 April 2021

This topic provides information on enhancements, bug fixes, deprecated features, as well as minor functionality changes for version 3.3.0 of the Tetra Empower Agent.

Enhancements (New Features and Functionality)

Deprecated Features
The following feature(s) are currently deprecated.

  • Usage of the API Key for Authentication: The API Key, which was used for authentication, is deprecated and is no longer available in Data Connection for new installations of the software. However, this feature is still backward compatible with previous versions (if the API Key was previously used).
  • Removed the desktop shortcut.

Minor Functionality Changes
The following minor functionality changes are in this version of the software.
