On-premises upgrade improvements You can now upgrade directly to the latest SOAR version to get the latest SOAR features. For details on the upgrade process, see Splunk SOAR (On-premises) upgrade overview and prerequisites.
New behavior in asset configuration when changing app versions As part of an app upgrade, downgrade, or reinstall, automatically performs the following actions for any asset configurations associated with that app:
  • adds new fields present in the version you are changing to, along with their default values if the app provides a default value
  • removes fields not present in the version you are changing to, along with any values associated with them

Note when switching back and forth between versions: If you set a configuration setting to a custom value, then switch to a version of the app that removes that configuration setting, then switch back to the original version, your custom value will either:

  • revert to the default value, if the app provides a default value, or
  • not be present in the asset configuration, if the app does not provide a default value.

For more information on app configurations see Configure metadata in a JSON schema to define your app's configuration in Develop Apps for Splunk SOAR (On-premises).

Comma splitting in Decision and Filter playbook blocks When configuring Decision and Filter blocks, you can now choose whether you want to use a delimiter and, if so, specify the string you want to use as a delimiter. For additional details, see Specify a datapath in your playbook in the Build Playbooks with the Playbook Editor manual.
Custom status label length increased Custom status labels can now be up to 128 characters long. For additional details, see Create custom status labels in in Administer .
Improved visual playbook editor experience Additional background block output calculations run automatically when you open a playbook, providing increased reliability.
