  • Patent number: 11361090
    Abstract: A method for providing an interprocess interaction in an electronic control unit having an operating system defining a kernel space, wherein the method involves steps in which: the kernel of the operating system intercepts a request for an interprocess communication between a first application and a second application of the electronic control unit. A verdict is requested, from an access control component of the operating system, with respect to granting access for the requested interprocess communication between the first application and the second application of the electronic control unit. The access control component generates the verdict for the requested interprocess communication based on a security policy. The kernel of the operating system selectively allows the requested interprocess communication between the first application and the second application based on the generated verdict.

  • Patent number: 11347565
    Abstract: A method and system of providing users with a tool to interact with content from a primary app through a secondary app are disclosed. The secondary app obtains source data from the primary app and determines whether the data includes labels that can trigger the application of a particular configuration in the presentation of the content. Changes made to the source data in the secondary app that relate to substantive or key data for the content do not affect the source data in the primary app. However, changes made in the secondary app that relate to non-substantive data can be propagated back to the primary app.

  • Patent number: 11340925
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention are directed to action recipes for a crowdsourced digital assistant. Users can define an action recipe by recording a set of inputs across one or more applications, by providing multiple sub-commands in a single on-the-fly command, by providing one or more associated commands, or otherwise. An action recipe dataset is generated, and stored and indexed on a user device and/or on an action cloud server. As such, any user can invoke an action recipe by providing an associated command to a crowdsourced digital assistant application on a user device. The crowdsourced digital assistant searches for a matching command on the user device and/or the action cloud server, and if a match is located, the corresponding action recipe dataset is accessed, and the crowdsourced digital assistant emulates the actions in the action recipe on the user device.

  • Patent number: 11325254
    Abstract: Automation windows for RPA for attended or unattended robots are disclosed. A child session is created and hosted as a window including the UIs of applications of a window associated with a parent session. Running multiple sessions allows a robot to operate in this child session while the user interacts with the parent session. The user may thus be able to interact with applications that the robot is not using or the user and the robot may be able to interact with the same application if that application is capable of this functionality. The user and the robot are both interacting with the same application instances and file system. Changes made via the robot and the user in an application will be made as if a single user made them, rather than having the user and the robot each work with separate versions of the applications and file systems.

  • Patent number: 11321149
    Abstract: A method includes receiving, by a first computer from a second computer, a stateless API request message comprising update value data, a consensus token, and a user identifier. The first computer determines whether or not the consensus token matches a previously stored consensus token. If the consensus token matches the previously stored consensus token, the first computer retrieves stored value data from a value data database based on the user identifier. The first computer then updates the stored value data with the update value data. The first computer generates an API response message comprising an indication of the update. The first computer transmits, to the second computer, the API response message.

  • Patent number: 11281511
    Abstract: Methods and systems for predictive execution of microservices. Execution of an application program interface request may entail execution of a plurality of microservices in a series. An events message may be transmitted to an events queue corresponding to the API request. The message may be based on an operating status of one or more microservices. Based on the events message, one or more of the microservices in the series may be configured to perform early execution steps before receiving an internal message from a previous microservice in the series. Such early execution steps may comprise authenticating a user and/or a microservice, retrieving and/or caching data, or the like. The one or more of the microservices may perform subsequent execution steps after receiving an internal message from a previous microservice in the series.

  • Patent number: 11281476
    Abstract: Example implementations relate to a plugin framework that facilitates management of heterogenous infrastructure resources residing in distributed data centers by multiple resource aggregators (RAs). According to an example, the plugin framework is logically interposed between the RAs and the heterogeneous infrastructure resources. The plugin framework includes multiple plugins each of which exposes a public API through which the RAs interact with the heterogeneous infrastructure resources. Each of the plugins corresponds to a particular type of resource of the heterogeneous infrastructure resources. Responsive to a first request issued to an RA by a north-bound client to a collection of the heterogeneous infrastructure resources, a plugin receives via its public API a second request including an RA-native message directed to a resource of the collection.

  • Patent number: 11275624
    Abstract: Provided are methods and systems for application program interface (API) management. An API management device may receive requests from client devices to submit an API and/or API update for implementation. The API management device may determine an operable status of the API and/or the API update by determining whether the API and/or the API update is configured and/or updated for implementation. The API and/or the API update may be determined to be configured and/or updated for implementation when the API and/or the API update does not violate one or more rules. The API management device, based on operable status, may allow or deny the request for implementation.
