The Romanian Government reduced the processing time from 10 to 1.5 days for Covid-19 backed up job retention applications
Latest Release Note
October 3, 2022
This new release of the Aurachain platform is focused on improving and enhancing existing functionality for both app creators and admins.
The Interface Builder, Document Builder, and Call API activity all get powerful new capabilities for app designers. While platform admins now have more control over users authenticating via SSO and improved user management that makes it easy to mark and anonymize personal data for GDPR compliance.
The “Data Grid” component received a few important updates:
The onSave and onSubmit events are now executed asynchronously if the error variable returns a promise. If the promise is rejected, the action will fail and any message returned will be displayed to the user. If the promise is resolved, the outcome of the event now depends on the message sent with the resolve action:
GetData: returns data from a component based on the path provided.
SetAllFieldsOptional: makes all fields of the component optional.
SetVisibility: hides Fragments, Zone components, Tabs, or Tabs within collapsible components.
SetLabelValue: changes the content of a label (does not work on labels inside a segment).
Dynamic tables can now be used in embedded blocks to display list child attributes.
Custom table & cell styles can now be configured on both static and dynamic tables.
Starting with Aurachain v.3.15, app creators can further customize the definition of the Call API activity within the Diagrams module. Custom defined parameters can now be added as part of the ‘Custom Header’ area.
We have reorganized the Configuration section so that it accommodates the Custom Header area.
Here users will be able to add a new parameter by defining its name and linking it to:
The Custom Header area can be defined for both the Request and Response areas. However, for the Response area, a parameter can only be linked to variables from data model.
The Custom Header functionality cannot be used with neither System APIs nor WSDL APIs. Custom Headers are only available for SWAGGER APIs.
Single-Sign-On is becoming the preferred way of authenticating users in modern organizations.
However, just because a user has a valid SSO account, doesn’t mean they should be able to log into Aurachain. Therefore, admins can now toggle off the automatic provisioning of External accounts for users that authenticate via SSO. External accounts that have already been created can now be disabled.
Furthermore, in case the e-mail address of a SSO user changes, admins can now update the e-mail address of External users in order to maintain the connection between the two accounts.
Finally, the “new account” e-mail template now looks different for new External users, explaining that they can log in via the configured SSO provider.
In this release, we’ve simplified user statuses. Starting with v3.15:
If a user is Disabled, they will be logged out and unable to log in again. The user is still part of Groups and maintains all assignments and permissions. However, any tasks claimed by the user will be unclaimed and they will not receive any notification e-mails as long as they are Disabled. Once Enabled, the user can continue working as before. To make it easier for app creators and admins to identify these users, we’ve visually differentiated Disabled or Inactive users throughout the platform.
Finally, we’ve improved the “Bulk invite” functionality so that invited users can be directly provisioned before they confirm their accounts.
GDPR requests or requirements involving anonymization can be tedious and time-consuming because they require identifying and removing all instances of relevant personal data. To make this task easier, we’ve introduced the ability to mark any attribute in an Application’s Data Model or in the Global Data Model as “Personal Data”. From the Process Inspector, admins can then select an instance and remove the contents of all “Personal Data” attributes with a single click.
Aurachain – like most web applications – relies on many common open-source libraries. These libraries empower Aurachain to deliver state-of-the-art functionality while adhering to established best practices and technical standards.
In the spirit of transparency, and as a sign or recognition towards the great work the communities behind these libraries are doing, we now list all of these libraries in a dedicated “Software licenses” (or libraries?) page accessible via the Workspace menu.
