New feature - Admin info banner

We want to provide you with helpful admin information directly in our system. So we added info banner to each admin snap-in in the administration area. They give you a short description of a feature, hints for usage, and links to our technical documentation platform for further information.

Info banner are available for snap-ins of the 4Apps CoreEngine, DAM and Essentials so far.

Please note: Our documentation platform is currently a beta version. You need credentials to read our docs - please contact your account manager if you need access.

New feature - Security admin snap-in

CORS and CSP. As for CORS, it is now easy to add URLs to the allowed origins. Just add the complete URL including port and clear the configuration cache. A restart of the server is not necessary anymore.

Please note: Make sure to add the URL of the source system to "CORS allowed origins" when using our feature System Synchronization.

Main view tooltips added

We added some more tooltips to improve the usability of our system and to give users instant tips on basic functionalities. Look for them here:

  • header (CoreEngine, DAM, Essentials)
  • subheader (modules)
  • left sidebar (including search, filter, folder structure)
  • search control
  • rich tile (DAM)

All tooltips have unique labels (e.g. "L-M-TASK-INFO") that must be translated (e.g. "Go to Tasks"). When upgrading to 3.8, translations come automatically for all modules of our Apps CoreEngine, DAM and Essentials.

Attention! Upgrading CoreEngine, DAM and Essentials to 3.8. will bring tooltips to all modules. So if you use other 4Apps (e.g. our PIM), older versions of a 4App or custom modules, only the label key will show in your tooltip. Please make sure to translate the keys manually in your module's properties files.

New ClientTypes to configure ObjectRenderer and layouts

If you want to optimize your user interface for mobile devices, you can now configure ObjectRenderer and layouts especially for smartphones and tablets. For this purpose you need to set a different ClientType for mobile devices depending on the display size. Configure custom ObjectRenderer and layouts with the new ClientTypes Phone and Tablet

Users will then get all layouts and ObjectRenderer with ct_phone if they access the 4ALLPORTAL from a smartphone and all with ct_tablet if they access the 4ALLPORTAL from a tablet.

Please note: This is an option for a custom configuration and no pre-configuration in our standard product.
