Centralpoint Update 8.7.0

Date of Update: Monday, March 13, 2017
Feature Summary
Social Media This new module allows you to connect to 10 different social media sites to create a wall of posts.
NavigationSectionMenu CpScript A new HideMenuWhenParentAndChildrenAreEmpty parameter has been added. When enabled it will hide the menu when where is no parent and no children.
Forms > Forms Form Processing > Module Submission > Field Map now supports a useCurrentInfo="true" attribute to save time when updating the same page.
BroadcastDataSourceUrl CpScript This script generates a document URL using the current modules document identifier. It only works with Data Sources executing in Data Broadcast.
Content > Video Library A new MP4 option has been added to the Video Type attribute. In order to use the Embedded Video CpControl on the Results View (#2), you will need to resubmit the related module desiger.
GoogleUrlShortener CpScript The Google URL Shortener is a service that takes long URLs and squeezes them into fewer characters to make a link that is easier to share, tweet, or email. This script only works with a Google API key. By default, your registered project gets 1,000,000 requests per day for the URL Shortener API.
CurrentUsers CpScript This new script returns the current users in the Procedure Manuals > Change Request Workflow on the Details View (#3) of a Procedure Manuals > Policies record.
Content > Events The module designer's Calendar view has been updated to repair a problem where multi-day events only displayed on the first day.
Form CpScripts All form CpScripts that support the DefaultValue property display a popup to the Form's Management help file's cpsys_Constant section in the Script Designer.
Procedure Manuals > Policies This module designer's Home View (#1) includes a new Taxonomy Remove Duplicate Records attribute. This feature can be enabled to remove duplicates from the taxonomy UI when the same record is tagged to more than one taxonomy. The record will display only on the lowest level taxonomy that is selected.
Telerik Integration Upgrade Centralpoint will be updated to utilize the Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX version 2017.1.228 later this month with the release of version 8.7.1. In this update Telerik drops IE8 support. This upgrade will primarily affect the RTF Editor and File Upload controls found throughout Centralpoint. If you require that these controls work in IE8 you should not install version 8.7.1.
Admin > Global Login A new SAML 2.0 Source has been added. It can be used to utilize SAML 2.0 Identity Providers (IdP) to log into the front end of the web site. In order to set up a SAML 2.0 IdP you must set up Centralpoint as a SAML 2.0 Service Provider (SP). This can be done using the new SAML Service Provider module property. When enabled you can also configure a SAML 2.0 IdP for Single Sign-On.
Design > vCards This new module can be used to design a vCard and produces a CpScript that can be placed on a page to render a link to download the vCard. A vCard is a file format for electronic business cards, and this module maps attributes in a module to vCard version 2.1, 3.0, or 4.0 properties. The module help file contains more detailed information.
Admin > Search All Modules A new Backup Module attribute was added after selecting Change Attributes under More Options. It can be used to backup the module's contents before changing the attribute values.
Data Transform > File Output A new Requestions Password attribute is available when Convert File Type is set to PDF. There is also a new Module Property called Password Redirect URL which must be configured using the new FileOutputAuthenticate CpScript in its HTML contents.
Education > Questions This module has been updated to allow a question to be assigned to multiple courses using the new Course Type attribute.
.NET Compiler Platform ("Roslyn") This compiler platform provides developers with support for C# 6.0 and VB.NET 14 language features. The update will include the Roslyn compilers in each application's Bin folder and will modify the web.config files to utilize the new compilers. If you have added the system.codedom element to your site's web.config you must monitor and repair all Root/web.config files after sync'ing.
.NET Framework 4.6 All Centralpoint sites have been updated to utilize the .NET Framework 4.6.2. The .NET Framework 4.6.2 must be installed on your server manually before this update can be installed. The installation of this framework may create "aspnet_client" folders in the Master/Root and cpweb_SystemName/Root folders on the server. These directories should be manually deleted to prevent problems with the sync. My Module developers will also be required to change their projects to target the .NET Framework 4.6.2. Right click the project and select Property Pages. Then select Build in the left navigation and change the Target Framework to .NET Framework 4.6.2. Click OK to apply your changes, save the Visual Studio project and restart Visual Studio. You may also choose to delete and recreate your Visual Studio project and it should automatically default to the appropriate version of the .NET Framework. If you have added any of your own components we suggest you install this update and test your components in your Development site before syncing the changes your other sites. .NET Framework 4.6.2 Developer Pack: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=53321, .NET Framework 4.6.2 (Web Installer): https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=53345, .NET Framework 4.6.2 (Offline Installer): https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=53344
Education > Courses A new Randomize Questions attribute has been added. Randomizing questions shuffle the order of questions and utilizes a new Number of Questions attribute to control how many questions from the course you want to show up on the test.
