The DIS team is currently working hard on two major new features that will have a big impact while working on automation script development tasks.
Automation script debugging
It’s already possible to debug QActions in a driver with DIS for a long time, but now this will become possible for automation scripts as well. Replacing the DLL of DataMiner with a debug version of the DLL, attaching to the SLManagedAutomation process, triggering the script will all be possible, immediately from within DIS. No clumsy workarounds will be needed anymore.
Note: to use this feature, DataMiner main release 10.1.0 / feature release 10.0.6 or higher is required.
Automation script as a solution
Just like it is already possible for protocols, it will also become possible to develop automation scripts in a solution-based manner, bringing the same advantages.
- Multiple files per script
- Integration in the CI/CD pipeline
Both features will be released before the end of the year.
