Major Changes in version 2.6.0

  • Introduced the Smart Pages module. Smart Pages is a brand new module that aims to simplify the creation of good-looking functional user interfaces, both as a standalone solution and as part of the Smart View perspectives.

Smart Pages features a WYSIWYG drag-and-drop editor, similar to the one already available for Beautiful WebForms, to enable business users to autonomously tailor their Smart View experience.

  • Introduced the possibility to limit the APIs a developer can utilize in Content Script objects. Content Script script engine can now be configured so that scripts are executed in a controlled container:Sandbox where only whitelisted APIs are usable. Whenever a developer uses an unauthorized API, at the time the script is executed, the engine will return an error containing information about the forbidden API and how to add exceptions to the preamble script if using this API is inevitable . The use of prohibited APIs may be authorized by super-users on the basis of what is specified in the preamble of the script.

Content Script

Process Builder API
A new API for defining workflow maps. This new API greatly reduces the effort required to set up a Workflow application, while opening up a brand new spectrum of possibilities.

Beautiful WebForms

Form Builder

  • Introduced a brand new widget library (V4). The new library makes extensive use of modern AMD framework for Javascript resources loading. All the widgets of the new library are SmartView ready and can be safely utilized in WebForms published in SmartView tiles (see. Module Suite SmartView Extension)

Extension for Workflow

It's now possibile to execute a Content Script associated to a Workflow Map as a Workflow Event Script.

Extension SFTP (NEW)

A new extension package that allows you to establish SFTP connections to remote servers.

Smart Pages (NEW)

Smart Pages has superseded the Module Suite extension of the Smart View. Previously available Smart View tiles, part of the AnswerModules's library have been ported and improved.

  • Content Script Result: Content Script Result tile accepts now, as a datasource, both a Content Script and a Smart Page object. Content Script Result tile supports now the expanding behaviour, a second Content Script or Smart Page datasource can be associated to the expanded version of the tile.
  • It's now possibile to configure AnswerModules' Smart View Tiles in order to pre-fetch their configuration using a separate call to the associated Content Script datasource endpoint. The Content Script datasource endpoint is in this case called with an additional widgetConfig parameter.
