Intrexx Steady Track 10.7.0

Published on May 24, 2022

Global search

The search is changed from multi-index to single-index. For portals that use long text fields as search facets, this can occasionally lead to requests exceeding the default length and triggering error messages in the local or global search. This effect is not fixable for Intrexx, but can be prevented by increasing the requestHeaderSize parameter in solr/server/etc/jetty.xml from 8192 to 65536 and restarting the search service.

Page wizard

The new Page wizard creates responsive pages. In addition, free layout tables can be displayed in tile views, which can be easily configured. Click here for more information about this topic.

OneDriveTable expanded

  • New type called "Drive"
  • DriveId from data field
  • StartFolderId static as well as from data field
  • OneDriveTable possible within the free table

For more information on this topic, see the section MS365 OneDrive - Dynamic access via drive ID.

File icon sets modernized

New file preview icons for Filewalker and file controls.

Please note: If file type icons are displayed too large in the browser after the update and $FileUtil.getIconUrlOfKnownFileExtension {{ is used in custom Velocity files, then the desired height and width must also be specified for the img tag at this point, or the style class "}}file-extension-icon" must be specified for the class attribute.

New property for OAuth2 login module

Enables case-insensitive checking, e.g., for e-mail addresses whose upper/lower case in Intrexx does not correspond to that in the identity provider.

Microsoft 365 - New process action for creating Microsoft 365 groups

An MS365 group is the basis for almost all MS365 services. For example, a SharePoint team site, drives, Exchange group mailbox, etc. are automatically set up for a group. The new process action now offers the possibility of creating only one MS365 group. The functionality is identical to the "Create Teams" action, except that no team is created based on the group. New in both actions is that you can now freely define the email address (group mailbox) for the group (or team). Previously, the address was generated by Intrexx.

Layout of the "Automatic logout" message

Decouple proxy application templates from REST

It is now possible to exclude certain URLs from the Manager's proxy communication. In addition, the proxy settings of the operating system can be adopted for the manager.

New style classes for application templates

The .Text_Small, .Container_Standard_2nd and .Container_Standard_3rd style classes are patched into all desktop layouts to improve the design of the application templates.

Intrexx Steady Track 10.5.0.20220304.227962

Supervisor password is set to the blank password during installation

In the past Intrexx versions, the supervisor password in the administration login was always empty after installation. This allowed actions to be taken on the operating system via the API without authentication, which is not desirable from a security point of view. For this reason, a supervisor password can now be assigned during installation. There are two variants of how an installation can be carried out:

Variant 1 - Installation via UI

Here, a dialog is displayed when the summary is exited, prompting the user to enter a password.

Please refer to the following section for more information:

Variant 2 - Interactive Installation via console

Again, the user must enter and confirm the desired supervisor password.

Please refer to the following section for more information:

Variant 3A - Installation via configuration file with specified supervisor password

The supervisor password specified in the configuration.yml is taken over (Attribute name "supervisorPassword"). It is not included in the configuration file in the installation directory "/installer/cfg/configuration.yml", otherwise passwords will appear in plain text on the server. Please note that since Intrexx Steady Track 10.1.0 the file format "yml" is used. In the previous versions, a .properties-file was used here.

See the following section for more information:

Variant 3B - Installation via configuration file without specified supervisor password

If no password is specified in the configuration file, a random password is generated. This is stored in the installation directory "/cfg/initial_passwd". This ensures that a privileged login on the supervisor only occurs if you also have access to the file system. When the Portal Manager logs on to the supervisor for the first time, it then checks whether the randomly assigned password has been changed. If this is not the case, a prompt to change the password is displayed. Once the password has been changed, the inital_passwd is automatically deleted.

See the following section for more information:

The new mechanism is enabled only for new installations. Updates from old installations are not affected by the changes.

New functions in the date picker calendar

There are three new buttons in the small date picker calendar

  • Today

  • Clear

  • OK

"Today" selects today's date, "Clear" deletes any entry from the date field, "OK" closes the calendar for date selection.

MS365 - Process actions / Create team

Teams have always been created as public teams so far. Now the visibility of a team can be configured when creating the team.

JDK17

Intrexx Steady Track 10.5.0 requires JDK 17. JDK 17 is included in the distribution.

New setup

There is a new installation routine for Intrexx Steady Track. This simplifies the installation under Linux in particular.

Linux

In the course of the installation, you can now create or select a technical user directly via Intrexx, who will be used to execute the installation. You can also select "root" as the user if your company's security policy allows it.

Therefore, it is no longer necessary to create corresponding users via a Linux terminal before the Intrexx installation.

The new installation routine also eliminates the need to stop and restart Intrexx services under Linux.

Components

When selecting the components, the "Intrexx Portal Manager" option is no longer available with the Intrexx Steady Track. This is related to improvements related to the Portal Manager. For more information, see the section Portal Manager vs. Portal Manager (server).

Detailed information on the new setup or installing Intrexx is available in the following sections:

Update process

A new, significantly simplified update procedure has been implemented for the Intrexx Steady Track.

If updates are available, you will be informed about them in the Portal Manager via a message window.

You can download the update while continuing to work. You can install the update afterwards. During the installation, your portal will not be available to portal users. Intrexx Steady Track check on startup whether an update is available on the newly implemented Intrexx Download Manager.

More information about update process is available here:
