The new 2.4.3 release includes the following new features:

Introduction of versioning mechanism for the document content, (activity commissioned by the Staffordshire & Shropshire Health Informatics Service of the British Health Service)

The new feature provides the possibility of document versioning, through the CMIS interface already supported by CMDBuild, when it is uploaded or updated an attachment to a data card or to a process.

It is then possible to::

  • Update a document already uploaded;
  • Specify whether the new version of the uploading document should be numbered as "minor version" (1.1, 1.2, etc.) or as a "major version" (1.0, 2.0, etc.);
  • Display in the Attachment TAB of CMDBuild a new icon which will open a pop-up window, where it will appear the list of the already uploaded versions of that document;
  • Check in the pop-up window, for each version of the document, the creation, last modification and end of dates, the author, the version, the name and the file description.

--------

Print GIS map

The CMDBuild GIS capabilities have been improved with the possibility to print the map currently displayed, with all available controls (polygonal, symbols, scale, thematism legend, etc.).

The print sizes can be customized by the user by changing a special configuration file.

The map printing is performed by using a special GeoServer plugin, tool already integrated in CMDBuild.

--------

Possibility to search an address on the map with OpenStreetMap

Also as part of CMDBuild GIS features, it has been implemented the possibility to research addresses on the OpenStreetMap.

The functionality uses the online tool Nomitatim, available as on-line service.

Integration of new filter possibilities in the Relation Graph

The Relation Graph gives now the possibility to select the visible elements defining a filter on the attributes.

The attributes can be filtered through the native CMDBuild functionalities.

The filter grid shows the status of the filter on each class.

--------

Improvements in the User Interface

  1. Possibility to specify the attributes to display in the createModifyCard widget
    The createModifyCard widget (CMDBuild Workflow Manual 2.4 ENG, page 36) allows in the workflow step to view or edit a data card specified in the flow design
    The new feature allows to configure in the flow design also the list of the attributes of the card to manage the widget located in a given step of the workflow
  2. Paging the user list in the Administration Module
    The user list in the Administration Module is now paged, with search possibilities.
    This new is particularly useful when the technical users authorized to access the standard CMDBuild interface are particularly numerous.

---------

Improvements in system authentication and logout

  1. A configuration parameter has been introduced to specify whether the CMDBuild access account should be considered "case sensitive" (differentiated according to the upper / lower case) or not.
    This is particularly useful when the authentication is delegated to external tools (such as Microsoft Active Directory) and CMDBuild should adapt to their operation mode.
  2. Possibility to specify a redirect URL at the logout.
    A configuration parameter has been introduced to specify an URL to "redirect" the browser at the logout.
    This is especially useful if the authentication is delegated to external instruments based on the Header Authentication and you want to avoid an immediate automatic re-login.

The booklet, in PDF format, is an important contribution that the IT Service of Italian Republic Senato wished to provide the CMDBuild Community.

It describes the approach and methodology adopted in the Senate for the design and implementation of an ICT SKMS system (Service Knowledge Management System) based on CMDBuild.

The document is intended to provide practical information which might be useful to other organizations that want to take the same path (the author rightly speaks of a "journey"), or more generally to those interested in the theme of ITIL.

Thanks to Ing. Vincenzo Curci for this precious document that he wanted to share on the occasion of the CMDBuild DAY 2016.

The CMDBuild DAY is the biennial meeting of CMDBuild users.

Given the growing international community, and the difficulty of bringing together users from very different geographical areas, this time we will meet by videoconference instead of in a physical location as in previous years.

The main goal of the CMDBuild DAY is to give a voice to those who have already adopted CMDBuild and want to share their experiences with the other participants of the meeting.

In this webinar we will walk you through the main features of CMDBuild READY2USE, giving you examples of real case studies and applications, as well as a comparison between CMDBuild and CMDBuild READY2USE. A webinar more focused on the usage of the tool than on the technical elements or new updates.

At the end of the presentation, there will be an ask&answer chat sessions where the staff of Tecnoteca will solve all the doubts or curiosities you might have.

The webinar will be held in English.
