What's New in GOSS iCM 10.0.6.0?
Forms and Endpoints get an upgrade in the new GOSS iCM 10.0.6.0 release
Over the past 12 months, we've been working hard to prepare the next release of GOSS iCM. Our 10.0.6.0 release builds upon the advances made in 10.0.5.0 with specific focus on further enhancing the capabilities of the 'solutions' side of the platform. Chief among these are, notable improvements to the Forms and Endpoints designers and the Workflow Modeller. Furthermore, 10.0.6.0 sees significant improvements in delivering new functionality when managing user security and stored personal data.
Consistent UI for the Workflow Modeller
Updates to the Workflow Modeller sees improvements made to the process modeller behaviour, bringing it in line with the UI behaviour throughout the rest of iCM. This includes new right-click context menus and the ability to group models by namespace, in a similar style to End Points. Furthermore, updates to the Workflow Modeller, now let you edit models in new windows so that multiple models can be worked on at any one time. The Workflow Modeller can now also automatically generate documentation for your model which are available as downloadable PDFs.
Improved Security and Data Management
With GDPR coming into force in May 2018, we have worked hard to ensure 10.0.6.0 enables Data Controllers to securely control and manage data. New APIs have been developed that allow you to search for and delete user data that has either been stored during any workflow process instance, written by the History Service or saved as iCM database objects. Combined with the new ability to invoke End Points from a scheduled task, these APIs allow you to cleanse data at regular intervals as well as delete a user's personal data upon a valid request.
Better Visibility and Control for System Administrators
10.0.6.0 provides system administrators with a new set of tools to allow for better controls on users' access as well as improved user visibility. The update allows direct reporting on what content users have access to as well as a more granular maintenance mode that can now suspend various parts of the Digital Platform rather than just iCM itself. We've also made the decision, as part of the patching process, to revoke all access to website groups and users, allowing system administrators to start with a clean slate and carefully consider who should have access to potentially, sensitive citizen data.
10.0.6.0 will be available from early 2018. More information on this release will be coming over the coming weeks. Until then please use the form below to let us know when you would be interested in patching to 10.0.6.0.
