Headers can be added to actions to handle those actions slightly differently from the default. (40357)

Excerpt from section 4.2:
Except for the connection options, Service Layer supports limiting all configuration options to the request level. You can set the Service Layer-customized HTTP header to overwrite the settings in b1s.conf only for the current request.
To configure your settings for the current request, you should use the following format:
In Saltbox actions, you can specify headers in the edit action pane. One or more headers can be added using the “Add to Headers” button.
For example, to replace collections instead of appending to them, use the header option
B1S-ReplaceCollectionsOnPatch: true, configured as follows:
Soft failures have been added to the actions
To enable this option, edit the action and scroll down to the option
Suppress error in action.
When enabled, processing errors (i.e. Service Layer responding successfully, but with a failure status) are allowed to continue while exceptions (such as being unable to authenticate to Service Layer) still cause the workflow to fail.
When enabled, processing errors must be explicitly handled (such as by using an if/else check on the failure status of the action).
This version also patches bugs in trigger splitter options and B1Object actions. In detail, these bugs include:
Using the Raw Message splitter option “Split Message Group By Column Name” returns an error (40133)
“B1Object Close” action bug (40474)
