    Thank you for your feedback. I have sent your documentation request through to the Technical Content team, who will add it to their backlog to look at the Oracle installation documentation. They may reach out if they have further questions.

  2. View dependencies of service instances

    It would be useful to be able to view any dependencies of service instances e.g. what smart object methods might be using a particular SQL service instance.

    Quite often when moving to a new company, I find that people have created service instances, SQL instances, from custom brokers, etc and then ditched it and then started again with a new one. Probably occurs with early days development. But it would be good to be able to delete any custom service instances that are not required / being used.

  3. Exchange Online Smart Object Create Email parity with Read

    I would like to see the Create method in the Exchange Online - Email SmartObject have features identical to the Read method.

    For example, we are currently unable to send email (via Create method) with confidential sensitivity even though we have the capability to read those flags.

  4. Creating users folder from Active Directory

    Looking for the ability to add a home folder in our shared drive from Active Directory.

    Normally when adding users in Active Directory, after selecting the letter for the drive and typing in a file path, the folder would be created in our file share. K2 has the ability to input these values, but in order to create the folder, you currently have to go into Active Directory and hit Apply. I would like to eliminate this step.

  5. Exchange integration for shared mailboxes

    The community exchange service broker (which per K2 community is no longer being maintained) would allow for K2 to see into shared mailboxes, list emails, etc. I am told that the integrated Exchange broker in K2 5.x does NOT have this feature. It needs to be added...we need to have the ability to manage emails via K2 for shared mailboxes.

    While you're at it, the 'move email' method also needs to have a return property with the new email ID of the email. That's necessary functionality.

  7. SQL Service Broker to support temporary/transient SYNONYMs within Stored Procedure

    When using temporary/transient SYNONYMs within Stored Procedure, i.e.

    ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[synonymTest]

    AS

    BEGIN

    SET NOCOUNT ON;

    if exists (select * from sys.synonyms where name = 'equipments')

    drop synonym equipments

    create synonym equipments for Material.dbo.Equipment

    SELECT * FROM equipments

    drop synonym equipments

    END

    It'll execute successfully via SQL Management Studio. However, when surfaced as a SQL Stored Procedure Service Object, properties are not surfaced. Having support for temporary/transient SYNONYMs Stored Procedure would be great.

  8. Add custom attribute to OOTB AD service

    Active Directory already provide with custom attribute for users and groups. These attributes use to determine a lot of things that is not catered by common Active Directory attribute that are used by internal Microsoft Application to suite the company/organization needs and usually used for identifying users/group with that company/organization internal definition. We utilize the custom attribute a lot from generating Address Book Policy, Distribution List, Sharepoint Security etc. It would be beneficial if we could also have all the OOTB default custom attribute (users and groups) from Active Directory to be read and write in K2. Especially now Microsoft…

  9. Add Name and Surname to the ADService2

    Add new attributes Name and Surname to the ADService2.
    We need to work with those attributes in list views as a separate list view columns allowing us to search and sort.
    (using an expression and splitting the Display Name values to two separate list view columns does not provide ability to sort and search).

  10. Support for Enterprise password vaults

    What is needed is support for integration to have support for static accounts to have their passwords stored in enterprise password vaults, ie cyberarc. This would allow the password vault to manage the password changes and allow for automated password rolling. When there are many account that have to have the passwords rolled manually in a period it become a very error prone process.

  11. Allow the Active Directory User object to support distribution groups.

    I am getting major user push-back on picker control's because they want to add distribution groups to their forms as well as individual users. "If outlook can do it why can't your form?" <- this is what I am dealing with. The limitation is you guys. I Can do two different pickers, one for groups (using UMGroup SO) and another for users but this is a very inelegant solution.

  12. Enable Dynamic Query

    | Unable to support store procedure that having temporary table or execute dynamic query inside. Unable to support the complex stored procedure, just the basic SP (e.g. basic select). May not able to meet some of the users requirements, or cost more time to Developer to design/think of solution. |

  13. data format - excel export

    To have an excel export functionality is a great thing. To work further in the excel file it would be helpful to have the right data format in each column. At the moment the format for date, time, numbers etc. is not right and the filter does not work.

  14. Add support for SQL Server FILESTREAM

    Currently we don't list SQL FILESTREAM as supported feature for our SQL Service Broker. It would be nice to add official support for this.

    Use case: A lot of clients from engineering or natural resources vertical have need to store and work with geospatial data or project files which they store with use of SQL FILESTREAM (this is often used when DB is stored on SSD while numerous large volume files are stored on SAS/SATA with capability to access them using T-SQL).

  15. Increase the number of fields retrieved via the AD User service object

    We have many scenarios where we want to auto-populate form fields with users' information (Name, Email, etc.). We've found that via its GetUserDetails method, the AD User service doesn't retrieve certain core fields, like First Name and Last Name separately. These are important for us to build the forms as we want them.

    We understand from a K2 service tech that the move from blackpearl to K2 Five removed some of the fields that were previously retrievable from the AD User object. Could we get those capabilities back? Basically we'd like to have as many out-of-the-box fields as are possible,…

  16. REST Broker: Properly Handle Alternate Response Codes

    The REST broker only handles the success response content. If a 400-level error occurs and contains content in the response (such as an object describing the error that occurred), the content is not picked up by the service instance. All you get is the status code.

  17. Pick a Category When Generating a Service Instance SmartObject

    When we originally generate a SMO from a Service Instance (for example, a SQL Server SMO), it always defaults the SMO to the SQL Server Service category. We then have to move it into a category to provide ease and organization from the enterprise. If we then have to go in and make an update to the SMO and recreate, it will move the SMO back into the SQL Server Service category.

    It would be a great feature if we have the ability to choose a category when generating a SMO from the Service Instance.

  18. K2 must be able to support complex JSON parsing including nested objects in arrays

    Today K2 is only able to deserialize nested objects on the first level, but not inside structures.
    This is a blocking issue as a web service client we don't control the API provided by the server.

    As JSON parsing is the only way to work with web services, it must be fully supported and this includes arrays of nested Objects.

    In the exemple below, K2 is not able to retrieve the data contained in the "nestedObject".

    (Note that this has been confirmed by the K2 NE Professional Services team, check with Jaco Dippenaar for more details about the issue)

  19. Enhance existing REST Service Type to return XML as well as JSON

    Firstly is there a way of doing this, as it seems the existing REST broker which is good (when you're dealing with JSON responses) doesn't allow this.

    For example I'm trying to query https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/storageservices/blob-service-rest-api and MS just use XML in the response, which annoyingly looks like I have to build my own broker to handle.

  20. Allow usage of Service Account OAuth Token

    At the moment, in K2, OAuth authentication will always mean that the OAuth Token is associated with the user executing/calling the SmartObject. This means that every user that uses a smartform with a smartobject that has an OAuth resource will have to get an OAuth token.

    Security wise, this is great. The end-users of the smartform needs to authenticate to the back-end.

    In some scenario's, this is NOT desired and K2 currently does NOT provide a solution for this.

    It would be great if we can configure a service instance to use teh OAuth token associated with the k2 host…
