CIC Cockpit now provides end-to-end visibility for API-, application-, and database-based integrations configured in the CIC Studio. The enhanced capabilities around API visibility provide users with unified integration views across B2B and API dataflows. CIC Cockpit automatically generates Endpoints (in view-only mode) for these types of integrations and references these Endpoints on the Job List and Job Details pages.
Job List enhancements
The Job List page now displays a Job for any API, application, or database transaction and shows the state of specific Job interactions on Business Processes (BP) executed in the Integration Engine.
See Working with Jobs.
Job Details enhancements
The Job Details page now displays a Job for any API, application, or database transaction. For these types of transactions, Job Details include Connection Numbers that link to top-level Business Process (BP) execution and EDI messages for the Transformation Endpoint (and any child Job steps, if available).
For API transactions, Job Details include the API query and path parameter values, all API invocations, and API request and response payloads.
See Working with Jobs.
Important Studio Update Note for certain Application Connectors
In order to take advantage of the end-to-end visibility for some Application Connectors built in previous Studio versions, an update to v5.1.4 or higher will be required. This applies to the Amazon Marketplace (AMP), Salesforce, and NetSuite Application Connectors. Take these steps:
- Update CIC Studio to v5.1.4 or higher.
- Update the Connector Project using the Cloud Connector Update option in the Studio.
- Re-deploy all related Projects.

- Fixed an issue where the wrong icon was displayed in Transformation Job step when no doc type is matched.
- Fixed an issue where job status for a failed job might be displayed as SUCCESS.

CIC Cockpit Enhancements
- The CIC Cockpit UI has been refactored with respect to Partner Activity and user access to Partner data.
- Partner activity now displays on the Activity > Partners page instead of Network > Partners page. See Viewing Partner Activity.
- Network > Partners page now displays a list of your partners by default. From this page, you can edit partner names (for the CIC UI only) and control which of your users have access to a partner’s data. See Controlling User Access to your Partners' Data.
- CIC now offers Scheduled Reports that use saved filtering criteria from the Activity page to generate reports that can be sent to registered CIC users. See Managing Scheduled Reports.
- Users can now sign up to receive Notifications when certain event types occur. Use your user profile to enable notifications for certain events and receive notifications by way of the email address associated with your user profile. See Enabling Notifications for Self-Service CIC Users.
CIC Studio Enhancements
- CIC Studio now provides the Microsoft Dynamics 365 SCM connector that lets you build integrations to connect and integrate data into this popular backoffice system. The new CIC Connector supports both cloud and on-premise versions of Microsoft Dynamics 365 SCM application. See Connector Overview - Microsoft Dynamics 365.
- The Schedules view, which had been removed from the previous Studio version, is now available in the Admin Console Perspective. This view provides a calendar view showing all deployed Process Schedules on a yearly, monthly, weekly, or daily basis. Users can also see a list of scheduled processes. This works in conjunction with the Process Schedule object, which allows you to assign a specific Business Process and determine when and how often it will execute. See Schedules View.
- Users can now change the time zone in the Schedule view. This allows coordination between the time zone where the actual Process Schedule deployment might occur and the design-time default time zone.
- Fixed an issue with time-based filtering in Messages Tile view.
- Fixed an issue in Messages Tile view and List view where, for tiles or list entries with the same message ID displayed adjacent to each other, trading partner IDs were not always updated properly.
- Fixed an issue where a duplicate key violation was thrown when updating FA information.
- Fixed an issue in File Adapters (move, copy, delete) that now reacts correctly to blank file names.
- Fixed an issue with the Email Endpoint where a Class Cast Exception would show in the job log when there was a PGP signature mismatch.
- A job is now created if a user logging into Cleo Portal presents an invalid password or if Cleo Portal is not enabled for the user. A job is also now created when attempting to upload to Cleo Portal a file that is rejected because of the file name/type.
