    I'm starting a new thread to cover Street Manager release announcements to keep these separate from detailed functional discussions.  This should hopefully make it easier for people to find release updates quickly without having to trawl through other posts.

    We were hoping to release our next update today but some minor changes released by Street Manager on Thursday have required us to make a few tweaks, so we are hoping to have the release available by Monday, 13th January.

    Please watch this thread for further updates.

    Please can I request that customers do not respond on this thread so that we can keep it as lean as possible.

    Hi,

    I'm pleased to announce that the next release of the Confirm Street Manager interface is now available to download here.  OnDemand beta participants will be upgraded soon and updated on this thread.

    The attached documentation includes the release notes for the current version.
    The following breaking change is introduced in this release:

    • The Confirm Street Manager interface is now included in a full Confirm Task Processor installation rather than by using Windows Task Scheduler.  The new Task Processor can run in a decoupled mode, allowing it to connect to earlier versions of the Confirm database (back to version 18.20).  The new decoupled Task Processor cannot be installed on the same server as your main Task Processor.

    If you have been using earlier versions of Street Manager interface through the StreetManagerAgent.zip folder files, you need to stop the old Windows scheduled task and use the Task Processor.

    Please refer to the installation section of the attached documentation for further details.

    Please do not respond on this thread so that we can keep it as lean as possible.

    The Confirm OnDemand environment has now been upgraded with the new version.

    You can now self-serve to activate the Street Manager interface with Confirm.  The steps for this are as follows:

    Go to the decoupled Confirm Web Street Works Settings page to set up the URLs and add your accounts.  This can be accessed using a URL like this:

    https://beta-development-webservices.ondemand.confirm.co.uk/confirm/web/app/?tenant=<Insert your profile name here>#/settings

    This is basically the same as the standard Confirm Web URL but with "beta-" in front of it.  Enter the following in the two first fields:

    Street Manager URL: https://api.sandbox.stwrks-dev.net/v1/
    Document Proxy URL: https://beta-development-webservices.ondemand.confirm.co.uk/confirm/web/

    Then add your account details in bottom section.

    When you are ready to try out the interface go to the Scheduled Tasks screen in Confirm and add "<V20.11>" to the Notes field for the STREET WORKS TRANSFER task.

    You will still need to contact us if you want to add a list of organisations for automatic Street Manager noticing.  Note that you do not need to provide this list for works that you receive via Street Manager from external promoters.  You can also manually add the "STWRKS" recipient to a works you are promoting if you want to do an ad-hoc test.

    Please email ConfirmSMsupport@pb.com if you experience any difficulties.

    Cheers, John

    The Confirm OnDemand Production environment has now been configured to support Street Manager integration.

    Please go to the decoupled Confirm Web Street Works Settings page to set up the URLs and add your accounts.  This can be accessed using a URL like this:

    https://beta-production-webservices.ondemand.confirm.co.uk/confirm/web/app/?tenant=<Insert your profile name here>#/settings

    This is basically the same as the standard Confirm Web URL but with "beta-" in front of it.  Log in using your usual OnDemand credentials and enter the following in the two first fields of the Street Manager Settings form:

    Street Manager URL: https://api.manage-roadworks.service.gov.uk

    Document Proxy URL: https://beta-production-webservices.ondemand.confirm.co.uk/confirm/web/

    Then add your account details in bottom section.

    When you are ready to activate interface go to the Scheduled Tasks screen in Confirm and add "<V20.11>" to the Notes field for the STREET WORKS TRANSFER task.

    You can activate the new Task Processor before April 1st as it will continue to support EToN where required, but please note: when you activate the decoupled Task Processor (by setting the version in the Notes) the new Task Processor will automatically make all of the lookup changes (e.g. new Inspection Items, Condition Types, etc.) in your Production database.  The new lookups are backward compatible with EToN, but please ensure that you have familiarised yourselves with them in your Development environment before activating the Task Processor in Production.


    We are planning one further upgrade before April 1st, which we hope will be on the 20th March, depending on what changes Street Manager release on the 19th.  This change will include the transition functionality in addition other enhancements.

    Please email ConfirmSMsupport@pb.com if you experience any difficulties.

    A common issue people are facing when configuring the credentials is seeing a "We can't let you in" message.  You need to make sure that your Confirm user has access to the "Confirm Web Settings" screen under System Administration > System Configuration.

    Hi all,

    Confirm team will conduct a webinar on Monday 23rd March 10 AM on the Street Manager project. 

    The Street Manager go-live date of 1st April is approaching and we are about to release the next version of our Street Manager interface, which will be used through the go-live period.  This webinar will cover everything that customers need to do to prepare for the transition, describe the most recently developed functionality and explain what additional functionality will be delivered in a subsequent release (before 30th April).  The full agenda is as follows: 

    • Explain the process of registering with Street Manager and activating the Confirm Street Manager interface.
    • Talking through the Transition process and highlighting any potential issues.
    • Walk through of the latest functionality and documentation.
    • Describing the functionality that is not yet available, the impact of this and to agree suitable time scales for deployment.
    • Discuss the process for raising issues found during go-live.

     We plan to release the next version on the afternoon of Monday, 23rd March, assuming that no critical issues are identified during the discussion.

    For those who haven't seen this, the go-live for Street Manager has been delayed from 1st April to 1st July.

    We will still release an upgrade with what we've done so far ASAP once we've updated the default transition dates that are generated.

    Cheers, John

    Hi All,

    We have noticed an issue with exporting Modified Applications from Confirm since the Sandbox upgrade this afternoon.  We are waiting for a response from the DfT if this will be resolved by them or whether we will need to make changes in our latest release, which e were hoping to send out this evening.

    I'll post further updates as soon as I have more information.

    Cheers, John

    The OnDemand development environment has been upgraded and production will be upgraded tomorrow.

    The attached documentation includes the release notes for the current version.  Please refer to the installation section of the attached documentation for further details.

    You can simply run the new installers which will do the upgrade for you.

    Note the tag on the scheduled task needs to updated to <V20.12>

    Hi All,

    We've noticed a couple of issues since UK switched to daylight saving.  We are currently not doing the correct conversion when we export FPN offence dates and reinstatement dates to Street Manager so these will appear in Street Manager one hour ahead of the time in Confirm.  This can also cause Street Manager to reject the data saying that dates can't be in the future.  Retrying after an hour will resolve this.  We will include a fix for this in our next release.

    We've also noticed another issue with the LondonWorks interface (Central Street Works Register Export Settings) where this can cause data downloaded from Street Manager to be immediately re-exported again, potentially creating a new works phase in Street Manager.  I'm not aware that there is any reason to have the London Works interface active anymore (even under EToN) so would advise all customers to deactivate it.  We have already done this for all OnDemand development environments.

    Cheers, John
