What’s New in Oracle Managed File Transfer Cloud Service

Learn about the new and changed features of Oracle Managed File Transfer Cloud Service.

Note:

Though MFT is licensed separately from Oracle SOA Cloud Service, it is provisioned as a service type under the Oracle SOA Cloud Service umbrella.  For that reason, you also take a look at What's New for Oracle SOA Cloud Service.

April 2018 — Release 18.2.1

The following new feature was added for this release.

Feature Description
MFTCS support in UCM account Universal Credits subscription — In the Universal Credits subscription model, you commit to pay a certain amount up-front annually, based on a monthly cost estimate. MFTCS is available in the existing UCM or New UCM accounts.
  • MFTCS can be chosen as a service type from the SOACS Provisioning Wizard.

  • MFTCS OCPUs will be metered as SOACS OCPUs.

  • OCI or OCI-Classic Regions can be selected during provisioning based on the Data Regions set up in the customer's UCM account.

See About the User Interfaces of Oracle SOA Cloud Service and Using the Provisioning Wizard in Administering Oracle SOA Cloud Service in a Customer-Managed Environment.

February 2017 — Release 17.1.3

The following new features were added for this release.

Feature Description

Support for version 12.2.1.2 as a new software image

When running the provisioning wizard, note that software image version 12.2.1.2 has replaced version 12.2.1. You cannot upgrade from 12.2.1 to 12.2.1.2. Instead, provision a new instance of 12.2.1.2, which provides multinode clustering support.

Version 12.1.3 is still supported.

See Administering Oracle SOA Cloud Service in a Customer-Managed Environment. For information about Oracle Fusion Middleware, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Documentation.

Multinode clustering support in 12.2.1.2

Multinode support is available with the MFT Cluster service type. You can use this service type in production mode.

Oracle Traffic Director 12c

Oracle SOA Cloud Service now uses Oracle Traffic Director Release 12c. Starting with Release 12c, Oracle Traffic Director administration tasks are performed from Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control. When accessing Oracle Traffic Director from the Oracle SOA Cloud Service Console, you are directed to Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control:

Import private keys in Oracle Managed File Transfer Console 12.2.1.2

You can import a private key from the Keys tab on the Keystores Management page of Oracle Managed File Transfer Console 12.2.1.2. The private key is used by the MFT server to start the sFTP server so clients can connect to it using the SSH protocol. This action provides an alternative to using WSLT commands to import the key in 12.2.1.2, as described in the Oracle By Example (OBE) tutorial Oracle Managed File Transfer Cloud Service Post-Provisioning Task - Setting Up the MFT Embedded sFTP Server.

If you are using Oracle Managed File Transfer 12.1.3 or 12.2.1, you must still use WLST commands.

To import a private key in the Oracle Managed File Transfer Console, see Using Oracle Managed File Transfer.

August 2016 — Release 16.3.3

Feature Description
Full multi-node cluster and scale-out support is now available for 12.1.3 instances.

You can now provision 12.1.3 multi-node clusters and scale out those nodes as described in Administering Oracle SOA Cloud Service in a Customer-Managed Environment.

July 2016 — Release 16.3.1
