Minor enhancements for the Next® admins and specialists, November 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 administrate or configure Next® also make great sense.

For this release we have collected the following minor enhancements targeted the admins and specialists:

Enhancement Issue
Publish folders can rectify faulty folder structures NEXT-4175
If defect folder configuration has given you faulty and duplicate folders, you can now resolve this by correcting setup and using Publish folder

Concatenate 3 data fields   
New Data extractor, that allows you to concatenate 3 individual data fields into one, with a configurable delimiter. Together with flexible metadata on GL transactions, this can be used to create a custom implementation of posting texts.


Search index optimization 
The index repair can now detect duplicates in the search index and repair them

Permission can be updated on checked-out documents  NEXT-4180
In order to support the increased use of check out/check in, we have extended the permission model to allow Checked out documents to have their metadata changed. And to allow their permissions to change accordingly.   

Enabled/Disabled flag added to Next® configuration elements NEXT-4186
In our journey towards Next® as a Service - and being able to deliver standard configurations based on best practice, we are adding a Enabled/Disabled flag to all configuration elements in Next®. When completed, this will allow us to deliver new configurations to you, and have you decide if and when to enable them. This initial release delivers Enabled/Disabled to many components, and rest will follow soon. 

For the techies

This is pretty much technical in it's nature.
