SDK News Corner

Caliper Admin Script updates

The local development script, caliper_admin, has received some very helpful updates. If you are running local development, please update the caliper_admin script so that you can receive timely updates and the following new features:

The setup now properly installs librdkafka for message bus extensions
Added internal (Q2 employee) VPN override handling so that internally the SDK works the same as it does externally nomad_secrets and local_vault directories are now created on initial setup The caliper_admin script now works properly regardless of whether it is used with zsh or bash Added a check for updates to the caliper_admin script every 24 hours Updated the script to use a websocket to a dedicated server, causing much better uptime

Group Mover

For the longest time instead of just moving a Customer into a new group the SDK would just clone the customer into the new group and then delete them in the old group. Now the Group Mover actually moves the customer into a new group.

New Adapter Extension Type

The Innovation Studio Team has made another type for the Adapter Handler. The Adapter Handler can now intercept International Wires and change or replace how they function.
