Minor enhancements for the Next® admins and specialists, February 2021
It is no secret that the primary target of our enhancements are the business users, or end users, of Next®. Still, providing ease of use, and increased productivity to those who admin or configure Next® also make great sense.
For this release we have collected the following minor enhancements targeted the admins and specialists:
Transformation Engine technology update
Quick-edit technology update
Next® Document Capture allocates less memory
We have dramatically reduced the amount of allocated memory when installing a document capture on Windows. This allows for running more document captures on a single server.
|Next® Document Capture runs better||NEXT-3727|
|When you run a document capture on an IBMi or Unix file system with 'Oldest first', we now release all the file handles and stress the server less.|
|More informative logging messages during start up||NEXT-3744|
|Start up of Next® server that was busy when closed down, takes time to secure consistency. We have previously optimized the startup time dramatically, and now we have also added to the logging that occurs during start up. Being able to follow the progress builds confidence, and eliminates uncertainty.|
|Dynamic Permission Control allows for empty results||NEXT-3746|
|the Dynamic Permission Control now proceeds to the next policy, if one policy yields no valid outcome.|
|Optional and hidden date fields are not longer set during Add document||NEXT-3763|
|On a contract for example, you do not want the termination date to be automatically set to today's date. This is now the default behavior.|
|Preview now also generated for Word templates||NEXT-3801|
|Next® now also generates previews for DOTX files - just as it does for DOCX.|
|More export options for admins||NEXT-3799|
|PDF Creation Policies and Transformation Engine Configurations can now be exported|
|Expert tool for reindexing haystacks on a running system||NEXT-3734|
Brilliant tool for the Next® experts that allows us to rebuild a corrupted master index on a running system. At a later time, this may be included in our automatic housekeeping, but for now its and expert only tool.
|IFrame integration with SAML/OAuth in the newest browser versions||NEXT-3809|
Enterprise single sign on now works in the new browser versions with stricter cookie management.
