Holodeck B2B 5.0 – new UI’s and Certificate manager

By 03/09/2020News

Holodeck B2B 5.0 is out and these are the changes we’d like to highlight.

User interfaces

Although Holodeck B2B is back end software that no end user should ever be in touch with directly, we thought that system admins would appriciate a quick and easy way to monitor the gateway without referring to the business system logs. That’s why we’ve added two user interfaces to Holodeck B2B.
With these UI’s, gateway admins can monitor message status and check gateway configuration.

Command line UI: Overviews of P-Modes, Certificates, Message status and Message history are included. Run the tool without entering a parameter for a list of all available functions.
Graphic UI: lets you quickly see how your gateway is configured in a graphical interface.
You’ll find an overview of the UI functions available in the documentation.

We’d love to hear what you think of the new UI and if there is anything else you’d like to be able to monitor. Let us know through our contact form or our social media!

2-way Asynchronous messaging

You can now specify a 2-way Async message exchange in 1 single P-Mode for simpler gateway configuration. This increases the ways in which you can manage P-Modes.

Certificate Manager

We are continuously making Holodeck B2B more modular and flexible. This release, we’ve added a new separate Certificate Manager to Holodeck B2B. It manages trust validation of signing and encryption certificates, as well as more security configuration options.
The default security manager supports OCSP validation. This is used in for example the Peppol network. You can now check the Peppol CA online to validate whether a certificate is still valid or has been revoked.
In addition, the Certificate manager lets you implement your own certificate policies.

REST API

You can add a REST interface to your gateway for connecting with your back end system using our new REST extension.
