Changed features

General

This page provides information about features and functions that are deprecated or have been removed. "Replaced features" are features or products that United Planet no longer provides support for but have a fully functional replacement.

Deprecated features are provided for compatibility with earlier product versions in Intrexx Silent Track. Information about new features in Intrexx Silent Track can be found here.

Definitions

Terms like "deprecated" can be understood in different ways. To ensure that the terminology in this document is understood correctly, we will define the respective term at the start of each section.

Replaced features

Some features have a fully functional replacement. This usually does not require any extra effort on your part. In some cases, the contact person or provider may change. A replaced feature will be removed from the product after 12 months at the latest.

3.1. M-Files Connector

United Planet has handed the support for the M-Files Connector to the partner Convergent. If you are using the connector, United Planet will get in contact with you. You contact person will change in this case.

Deprecated features

Deprecated features will no longer continue to be developed by United Planet. Please do not start using these features in your application development from now on if you have not used them before. Deprecated features will continue to be supported until their end of life if they were used in older versions of Intrexx and are therefore needed for the sake of backwards compatibility. Please look at alternatives if you are using one of the features listed below. The corresponding features will usually be removed 12 months later at the earliest.

Intrexx Share 2

End of Life: August 2023

PrintView

The print view is a destination page option of the button with which a print preview of the Intrexx page can be created. This feature is technologically deprecated and is no longer being developed.

To facilitate the update, all existing buttons with the destination page option "PrintView" are patched to the browser's print function. The destination page is loaded in a new window. There the print function of the browser is activated automatically. It will still be possible to create buttons with a print function after the end of life. In this case, the browser's print function will be used as described.

The browser print preview can be set in the "Design" module in the layout settings on the "Print" tab.

Connector for SAP Business One

Support for IBM DB2 database

The costs incurred for the maintenance and support of IBM DB2 are high. The work and expenditures associated with supporting many different and potentially incompatible databases are significant.

Office 365 Connector

Our new Connector for Microsoft 365 and Teams became available with Intrexx Steady Track 10.4.0. This will also be available in Silent Track at the next sync time in March 2023. It includes all the functionalities of the old connector and many more. If you are using the Office 365 Connector, you can apply for a license for the new Connector free of charge. To migrate your applications to the new connector, requires the following steps:

  • Setting up the registration with Intrexx. The app registration with Azure can still be used. However, the redirect URL must be adapted. It may be necessary to extend the scopes and also to create a web platform for using the OneDrive control included in the new connector. Click here for more information.

  • Existing file fields that contain links to drives must be recreated and reconfigured and swapped accordingly in the controls.
