Product: Web UI Release Date: April 21, 2022.

Previewing Construction Files Using File and Folder Links

This enhancement to the existing advanced file preview of construction files will enable it to work on file and folder link pages. 

This will apply only to the customers for whom advanced file preview functionality is already enabled.

Protected Metadata Scope

This release adds the support for 'Protected Metadata' scope. So far, we have supported two possible scopes for Metadata:

  • Public Scope, where:
    • the values can be viewed and set by users in Web UI, as well as via the API
    • the namespace and keys can be defined/changed by admins/users with the role via Web UI, as well as via the API
  • Private Scope, where:
    • the values can be viewed/set only via the API
    • the namespace and keys can be defined/changed only via the API
    • no values, namespace, or keys can be seen in the Web UI

In addition to the two scopes, there are some use-cases where it makes sense to have the third, "Protected" scope, where:

  • the values can be viewed by users via Web UI
  • the values can be set only via API
  • the namespace and keys can be defined/changed only via API

The Protected Metadata values are displayed in the Web UI with a lock icon, in order to differentiate them from the Public Metadata values.

Key Issues Addressed

Reset password email was getting sent to the non-existent user with the internal node name

There was an issue with resetting passwords for a non-existent user where the email was getting sent to non-existent users along with the internal node name. This issue has been fixed such that the email itself will not go out in such a case going forward.

 

The file/folder share context menu was being cut off in the Safari browser 

There was an issue with the share context menu for file/folder where the share context menu was getting chopped when many items were listed. This was only applicable for some specific versions of the Safari browser. This issue has been fixed.

 

The watermark in the file preview was overlapping with the top header bar 

There was an issue with the watermark enabled file preview where the watermark was overlapping with the top header bar. This issue has been fixed.

 

Preview generation failure email for the preview-only link was getting sent while the preview was being loaded

There was an issue with previewing the preview-only links where the preview generation failure email was getting sent to the user while the link was still loading. This issue has been fixed so that the failure email will not be sent to the user.
