ESB 23.04 Released

Pentagull is pleased to announce the release of version 23.04 of the ESB platform. This release includes several major feature enhancements which continue the recent trend of incremental improvements to both reliability and usability.

What’s new for 23.04?

The new release includes numerous new features to core, manage users, system configuration, web and more. The two major upgrades to core are related to new business rule functions; AssociateDocument with the purpose of adding an existing document to the documents tab of a work item and DocSearch, which counts the number of documents currently attached to an item, while also allowing the option to filter on the document type.

In relation to manage users, it is now possible to export details of a role membership to a spreadsheet. To use this feature, select the Manage Users module then click the Roles tab. It’s possible to export details relating to a single role or multiple roles, using the new Export Members button and Bulk Actions buttons respectively. The Bulk Actions button allows you to tick the roles you wish to be included.  

Another feature enhancement of the 23.04 release is that pop-up sub forms now support the ability to have their rows re-ordered by the user. However, this feature must be enabled on any form field where it’s required.

What’s new for system configurators?

The new 23.04 release of ESB contains several new features to system configuration. One of these changes is the ability to now change the type of a Date/Time field to a Date field. In addition, when setting up an external data source, WorkItemID can now be used as one of the source fields, instead of specifying a specific numeric field ID. Global administrators can now access a log viewer that shows any letters that have been sent.

A recent release introduced the ability to define months of the year when setting up scheduled reports. The 23.04 release has gone a step further and provides additional flexibility by introducing the functionality of specifying when external sources should be processed. In addition to specifying the time of day, you can now specify specific days of the week, specific months of the year, or even a specific day of the month. This is especially useful as it allows the 1st of the month, every Monday or only on weekends for example.

A fix has also been introduced to restrict an expression starting with “ from automatically being misinterpreted as a literal value.
