We’ve got big news for you! We have taken the wraps off our shiny, brand new, browser-based designer. We call it TIBCO Cloud™ Integration - Web Integrator but you’ll just call it your ‘integration best friend.’
Everything you need to build connectivity to your applications is now available in your browser. Not only can you easily define your connections to your SaaS applications, you will be able create web apps in three simple steps. All you have to do to create an app is:
- Pick how your app is going to start: a timer, a connection, a trigger, or an API call.
- Lay out your flow by dragging and dropping tiles in place. If you’re not happy where they are, just move them.
- Configure each tile as needed.
Three steps and you’re done! With TIBCO Cloud Integration - Web Integrator you’ll be more productive than ever. It’s not just you that will be productive, your apps will be as well. We used Project Flogo™ in building Web Integrator because it is the lightest integration framework. Plus we dig Open Source technology. Using Flogo, we have given you the ability create very powerful and highly performant applications.

Virtual Private Network (VPN) Connectivity
Organizations today are integrating to everything. Everything includes being able to connect to applications and services hosted in private networks and datacenters. With TIBCO Cloud Integration, this is accomplished with our Virtual Private Network capabilities. With the VPN capability, TIBCO Cloud Integration users can connect to on-premise sources leveraging security infrastructure already in place in private networks and datacenter. No software to install, just configure your VPN connection and go.

GitHub Support for API Specs
In one of our earlier releases we added GitHub support for Microflows. We have, by popular request, added it to our API specs as well. Now you can import and export your API specifications to GitHub and incorporate that into your API lifecycle as well!
New Studio and Connectivity to Amazon SQS
With the addition of the TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks™ Plug-in for Amazon SQS and SNS - Community Edition , we’ve added connectivity to another new messaging product. With this release we’ve ended the support for all previous versions, so please make sure that you download the latest version of TIBCO Business Studio™ - Cloud Edition from the download page at https://integration.cloud.tibco.com/download. After that, you can import your existing projects and continue developing!
New Trial Experience
If you’re a new user you might have seen the new Trial screen. We know all beginnings are difficult, but we’ve got your back! This new screen, which is accessible from the help section as well, guides you through getting started with TIBCO Cloud Integration.

The API Modeler is one of the starting points for many journeys in our API-led Integration Platform. One of the missing elements was the ability to search your list of API specifications based on name, version, and description. This release adds that new functionality right at the top of our API Modeler.
New Connector Samples
We had an internal hackathon last year where TIBCO employees could create new connectors on TIBCO Cloud Integration in the form of reusable projects for TIBCO Business Studio - Cloud Edition. We’ve added those connectors, as Open Source Software, to our Github page at https://github.com/TIBCOSoftware/tci-samples so you can easily use them in your applications.
December 13th, 2016
After both internal and external testing, we’re proud and happy to announce we’ve added messaging support to allow sending messages between different Integration Applications. This great new addition to TIBCO Cloud Integration is powered by TIBCO FTL. Please note that you will need to download the latest version of TIBCO BusinessStudio - Cloud Edition to make use of this new feature
Modeling an API is an important part of our product and we want to make it as easy as possible. Based on a lot of feedback we’ve made significant changes to the way you can specify inputs and outputs. You can now supply a sample message that we’ll translate into a JSON schema!
Github Support for Microflows
An important part of any development cycle is the ability to store configuration and code in a version control system. You can now export and import your Microflow configurations in GitHub allowing you to share, collaborate or simply store your configurations.

Automated Fault Tolerance
TIBCO Cloud Integration Application instances are now fault-tolerant by default. TIBCO Cloud Integration checks if Application instances are still running. If it detects that an Application instance has failed, it will automatically restart a new instance. For example, if an Application’s desired instance count is two, and one of the instances stops running, a second instance will be automatically started.
Plug-in for MQTT
As the Internet of Things is growing TIBCO Cloud Integration is growing with it. In order to solve the connectivity between the various systems used in the IoT space we’ve added the TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Plug-in for MQTT palette to TCI. Please note you do need to download the latest version of TIBCO Business Studio - Cloud Edition to make use of it.
Publish to Mashery Made Easy
Publishing to Mashery is now easier than ever. Your Mashery V3 API key and secret are no longer needed, just provide your credentials, Area UUID and Traffic Manager Domain. TIBCO will automatically detect your key and secret in order to publish your APIs into Mashery.
October 4th, 2016
When you have a great idea, we want to make sure you can get it to us as easy as possible! TIBCO has launched a new ideas portal (ideas.tibco.com) where you can submit your ideas for new features and enhancements.
By popular demand we’ve added the email palette back to TIBCO Business Studio - Cloud Edition. That means you can now send and receive email messages as part of your integration flow!
By even more popular demand we’ve made some significant changes to our UI on the Apps List page. You can now group applications in Sandboxes in order to organize your different environments or business functions, or any other combination you might want to.
API First Updates
TIBCO Cloud Integration is designed with APIs in mind. We’ve made a lot of improvements on the workflow to model, create and publish APIs. You can now import an API directly from the Internet if you have the right URL, the performance of the UI and runtime of our Microflows has been improved and, very important for API Management, we’ve made significant updates to the ease of use for publishing to Mashery. The Publish to Mashery wizard now helps you to create packages and plans.
New Command Line Interface
With the introduction of sandboxes, we also updated the command line interface to be able to handle the grouping introduced. Please download the new command line interface here.

Please follow the steps listed at https://integration.cloud.tibco.com/docs/connectors/installation.html in order to update your existing connectors and get the new Amazon S3 plug-in!
We’ve fixed a lot of small issues in TIBCO Business Studio™ - Cloud Edition. In order to make sure that you have the latest updates, please download the latest version from the download page at https://integration.cloud.tibco.com/download.
New Application Domain Name
In order to follow industry best practices, we are changing the domain of the endpoints of your application from
If you deploy a new application or redeploy your existing application, you application endpoints will use the domain
Your existing running application endpoint will still be accessible at the domain
app.cloud.tibco.com until September 15th 2016. Please redeploy your application at your convenience before September 15th 2016.

Search the Documentation
Having trouble finding out specific information on how the product works? Our documentation comes with an out-of-the-box search functionality that will enable you to quickly find what you are looking for!
With the addition of the TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks Plug-in for Workday, we’ve added connectivity to one of the largest and fastest growing HCM products.
For an integration application, there is a tab called “Environment Controls”. This tab enables you to manage and set your application variables without having to move back to design time. With a single click, the changed variables are updated and your application is restarted to ensure the changes take effect.
All applications will now show their respective base metrics, so that you can identify how they are being used and in case of any problems, identify the bottleneck. The new tab will show the CPU usage, memory usage, as well as network I/O metrics on any of your applications.
Zero Resistance to Code
Process Detail View
The integration applications pushed by TIBCO Business Studio - Cloud Edition now show their inner working as images on the Implementation tab. This gives administrators the ability to see their processes while troubleshooting.
TIBCO Mashery® Integration
API modeling and building is a central aspect of TIBCO Cloud Integration, but as many of us know, managing them is a whole different beast! TIBCO Mashery can help in managing any APIs, and with this feature, you can now easily publish your APIs into Mashery® and manage them from the Mashery control center. [Note: Mashery credentials and sign up are required for this feature.]
Support For Multiple Endpoints
With the addition of SaaS plug-ins, TIBCO Cloud Integration is now able to support multiple endpoints. This will enable you to find the callback endpoint needed to use callback mechanisms in the SaaS plug-ins, as well as enable publishing and hosting multiple API endpoints.
New SaaS Cloud Connectors
With the introduction of our first set of plug-ins in our previous BETA release, we’ve expanded the set of plug-ins available for SaaS products. In this release we’ve added plug-ins for NetSuite, Marketo and Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
Leveraging TIBCO’s long history in connectivity, we’ve added two Cloud connectors (Salesforce.com and ServiceNow) and support for Postgres and Microsoft SQL Server that can be used from within the Integration applications built in TIBCO Business Studio - Cloud Edition. These plugins are only available for use with the TIBCO Cloud Integration beta. There are also many more connectors and the databases to come.
Application Logs Using the CLI
During our latest release, we enabled you to see the log files of your applications from the web. Now, you can also read the log files from the command-line interface. This will enable you to redirect to log files anywhere you want and tie them in with your own log data-lake. The options you have for looking at your log files are similar to the web and allow you to specify a certain time interval, or stream them endlessly!
Every release we will give you a quick overview of the new features and present them to you once you log in. Since our platform is continuously evolving, we hope that you will use these new features and tell us if you like them.
Application Log Filtering
In the last release, we introduced log screens. With your feedback we enhanced the screens to also contain log level filtering and make it more meaningful to you as an end user to find the information you want!
Sample responses in Mock Apps
In the last release we introduced sample responses in the API specification, in this release we’ve added the ability to edit the responses of an existing Mock application and give you the ability to request a specific response (such as if you really need that 401 exception).
Added Swagger to Microflows
Microflows are now a true first-class citizen of the platform and they now expose their Swagger contract as well. This means you can create a cascade of Microflows!
Concurrent actions are now possible from all channels (web, command line and studio). Please download the latest version of the TIBCO Cloud - Command Line Interface to receive the right status messages when you are working with your applications!
You can now see their application logs and if they have any problems, investigate them. The log screen is found as a tab in your application details page!
Sample responses in API specifications
In your API specifications you can now add sample responses as well. This means the Mock application built from your specification will have sample responses available to return to users when testing the application.
Business Studio Cloud Edition
TIBCO Business Studio - Cloud Edition provides the same ease of use and connectivity options that customers have expected from TIBCO all these years. For Cloud Integration, TIBCO has added new gestures to make working with REST interfaces even easier. The Cloud-to-Cloud integration has been optimized using the latest available plug-ins from TIBCO’s impressive stack.
With TIBCO’s long history of integration products we’ve now designed a new way of integration. Microflows are new stateless, lightweight integration applications that enable the implementation of new web patterns like BFF (Backend-for-Frontend) or API Gateway (Microservices gateway).
The API Modeler allows developers to create and test their API without writing a single line of code. By just clicking, you can create and test your API, which also means you can let developers access your API before there is a complete working back-end.
