Oxcyon provides support throughout our agreement, including Evergreen Updates, SDK access, and ongoing training.   

Developer Support

Oxcyon supports your development team by granting them full customization control over Centralpoint. We offer an SDK, Class Library, and database diagrams upon request. Additionally, we provide tailored training for your team based on their internal development requirements. Our goal is to ensure your developers receive high-level expertise so they can work independently, minimizing our intervention. We view ourselves as a trusted ally, maintaining a partnership through our Evergreen Updates. We also learn from your developers, gaining valuable insights and ideas for future development.

Oxcyon collaborates closely with your development team to integrate with their back-office initiatives. Whether it's authenticating against your AD/LDAP or exchanging credentials through a web service, we manage the User Experience cohesively. This applies within Centralpoint or even in other applications via Centralpoint-To-Go. We can expose web services and APIs on a per-client basis, including examples of SOAP and RESTful Web Services in our SDK.

Hosting: On-Premise or SaaS

Centralpoint is versatile in its installation options: on-premise, in the Cloud, or through hybrid, FedRAMP-compliant, and Private Cloud configurations. It's compatible with Azure, AWS, Google, and other platforms. For managed cloud hosting, Rackspace is the typical choice, although we can support AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud environments. Oxcyon offers managed services for Dedicated and Cloud hosting, including Security services. Your organization might have instances of Centralpoint both in the cloud and on-premise (e.g., for an Intranet). We provide managed SaaS hosted solutions or on-premise installations, even behind firewalls.

Oxcyon ensures all clients are up-to-date through our alliance with Rackspace, which recently acquired DataPipe. This partnership offers Compliant hosting services (HIPAA, PCI, etc.). Our bi-weekly Evergreen Updates, facilitated by the Rackspace partnership, maintain your environment's relevance. These updates are optional, testable locally before activation. Regardless of your hosting choice, Centralpoint requires a Microsoft Windows Operating System and Microsoft SQL (Standard or Enterprise).


Centralpoint can be installed on premise (within your environment), hosted for you by Oxcyon, or in the Cloud (including Hybrid cloud). No matter where you host, you are guaranteed to never become obsolete due to our unique, evergreen updates. These (pull) updates, provide you with the latest, greatest version of Centralpoint at all times, including all of our out of the box modules, which we release bi-weekly. Click to see our timeline of updates to see why this really is a Stream of Enhancements. 

Please see our Technical Documentation & Certifications regarding On Promise or Cloud Hosting. 

Evergreen Updates

Centralpoint stands out as the exclusive ECM offering evergreen updates, ensuring bi-weekly pulls of the latest release for each client. This distinctive feature nullifies obsolescence and confers a competitive edge over rivals. Consider this: How can you install other solutions and expect their relevance without such updates? Centralpoint obviates the need for further investments in web technology; it always remains current, regardless of hosting location.

These evergreen updates are PULL updates, sourced from Oxcyon every two weeks, be it on premise, behind a firewall, or in the cloud. Importantly, our updates don't disrupt local custom development. Your work remains separate from our updates, allowing both to progress efficiently. New features and options are available at no extra cost, utilized as needed. We take pride in leading clients by introducing novel features sourced from their insights — the Voice of Customer — guiding our R&D. These updates mirror an expanding toolkit for competitiveness in the evolving digital realm. Our role is to consistently provide you the finest digital tools. Their activation timing rests with you, but they should evolve with changing technology.

Change is constant, in technology and life. Embrace this truth with a forward-thinking digital strategy and partnership that keeps you ahead. Bid farewell to obsolescence.

Centralpoint Update 8.11.67
Monday, August 21, 2023
DataTransfer ShortGuid script. This method takes GUID (DataId or UserId) and generates a Base64 string which is more readable. GUID: c18736de-d8e2-4f8a-8fe8-faf287a90815 Base64 String: 3jaHweLYik-P6Pryh6kIFQ
Module Properties > Resource ContentThe purpose of this feature is to extract the text from files within defined attributes and insert the file text into a system attribute named ResourceContent. This allows the file text to be indexed in the site's Full-Text Index searches. We've found it is common that the same attribute is defined in the "Word Document Content Attributes" module property. When this case occurs, the problem is that the system was extracting the contents of the file twice, inserting the same contents in two attributes, and bloating the Attributes XML. The change made to this feature is that the system will prevent the dupe file text in Resource Content when the same attribute system name is defined in the Document Content Attributes and holds a supported file extension between both methods.
CpScript ColumnSearchCriteriaInValueA new property named IsExecutingCpScripts is supported. When enabled, the following CpScripts found within the content are replaced: AudienceInfo, UserInfo. All other CpScripts will be replaced with an empty string. The supported scripts listed above are safe from creating errors and performance issues. Please use the help file to apply to the site and review additional notes on this feature.
SystemPage Search Suggestions Results scriptSystemPageSearchSuggestionsSearchResults script lets's Admin record a search result based on the URL of the page in the Search Suggestions module

Centralpoint Update 8.11.66
Monday, August 7, 2023
Console Data Transfer Try Abort process in the Pop up In the console Try the Abort link in the Data transfer Pop up to Abort Data Transfer Process
CpScript FormAutoSaveThis method has been rewritten. It should be entirely backward compatible. If there are issues that this behaves differently, please report them immediately to the Oxcyon programming team. Afterwards add the property isLegacyMode="true" to the CpScript to use the old version. The purpose of these changes is to allow console administrators with working JavaScript skills a means to call the web-service a single time without the checkbox. We've identified custom setups with this CpScript that are executing unnecessary database writes.
Module Properties > Content Block ExtractorPerformance enhancements have been made to this feature to only update the source document's blocks when attributes in the block have changed. Additionally, a custom attribute named "IsContentBlockExtractorDisabled" can be added to your module. When a record is submitted with this attribute holding a value of "1", the content block extractor will not execute at all. Detailed instructions on how to add the attribute have been added in the header text of module properties.
CpScript PdfViewerMany errors are recorded from the PDF Handler which is the code that manages this CpScript. The errors are from corrupt files and often state "Incorrect file format" or "This file's format is not supported or you don't specify a correct format.". There is no programmatic solution to resolve these problems. The PDF Handler will now return a valid PDF document in these instances informing the user that there was an error and to notify the website administrator. The PDF will show the path to the problem source file and include the error message.
Search Suggestions Report was createdTo display on the website create Navigation with Page Type = URL. Enter /Pages/SearchSuggestions.aspx into the URL attribute. It will only be available for the administrators.

Centralpoint Update 8.11.65
Monday, July 24, 2023
CpScript ColumnModuleAliasThis CpScript is used to return the module alias. When a module alias does not exist, it will return the system's name from the cpsys_Modules.[Name] table. This script must be executed in a method that evaluates DataTable rows. The table must contain a ModuleId column that contains a GUID/UNIQUEIDENTIFER data type. This script was written to be used in the "Excel" option within "Search Results Output". It will also work in results views or any Data Source that contains a ModuleId column.
Module Properties > Content Block ExtractorThe Content Block Extractor trigger method is creating performance issues in sites when a document contains a significant amount of headings. The system now restricts the amount of records created or updated to 100 by default. If problems persist, console admins may lower this number with a new module property named "Content Block Extractor Max Upserts".
Data Transform > Search Results OutputThis is a new configuration module that is used to convert search results into various file formats. It is currently supported at System Pages > Search (tab) > Search Results Output Controls. This allows users to execute a search and download the search results into the output of the selected configuration record. Please review the help file for more details and setup assistance.

Centralpoint Update 8.11.62
Monday, June 12, 2023
All Generic Enhanced ModulesA new Generate Synonyms module property has been added. When enabled it will generate synonyms for all key phrases upon document submission. Do not enable if the semantic search feature has not been manually installed in your database by a server administrator. An error message will be written to the trace if the semantic search is not enabled. Do not enable if Microsoft Office is not installed on the web server. You will receive the following error when submitting records in the client console if Office is not installed. Could not load file or assembly 'office, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. Here are some considerations for server-side automation of Office. This feature may cause inserts and updates to take much longer depending upon the number of key phrases generated.
Script Generator > Script > Data DiffsThe client-side cpDataDiffs.init object now supports a hasDefaultControls property which is set to a value of false. This property can be set to true which will allow users to generate a custom UI by creating their own controls and event handlers. A new web-service method is available to be called from cpDataDiffs.getDiffHtmlFromDiffIds(sourceDiffId, compareDiffId) which allows comparison of two cpsys_DataDiff records that are not in sequence. Please read the help file for more information on and guidance on plugin properties and available methods.
Script Generator > Script > AutoCompleteThis CpScript outputs JS which binds a text input HTML element to a plugin. The plugin calls a method that returns Full-Text Index search results from the system's cprel_WebSiteSearch table. It then renders the results through jQueryUi's Autocomplete Widget. The plugin has several callback functions which are used to pass data to the web-services. The callback functions are configurable to work with specific result sets and produce various UIs.

Script Generator > Script > Module ResultsThis CpScript outputs HTML bound to a JS plugin. The plugin can call two web-services. One method that returns results form cprel_WebSiteSearch and another that creates rows in cpsys_Logging. The plugin has several callback functions which are used to pass data to the web-services. The callback functions are completely configurable to work with and produce various UIs.

Centralpoint Master Server

The Centralpoint Master operates as a server, serving as the parent and host for your singular or multiple web projects. This versatile solution can be installed on-premise at your facilities or at your preferred location, facilitated by a user-friendly installation wizard. Each project, potentially substantial on its own, could function as a N-Tiered portal or Wheel.

This architecture excels in scalability, affording you robust control akin to SharePoint Portal Services but yielding superior outcomes. The Centralpoint Master efficiently assimilates updates from Oxcyon, even for on-premise hosting, as pull updates, effectively averting obsolescence and ensuring you're consistently up-to-date.

Upon downloading new modules, these can be seamlessly synchronized, with the option for automated synchronization, to your live project sites as new features. Following synchronization, you have the flexibility to activate the features needed for each site. The Centralpoint Master extends modular control over your local development endeavors. This facilitates the downstream synchronization of newly developed tools to your diverse web projects. Consequently, you can maintain an array of modular functions, mirroring our own practices.

For a comprehensive understanding, we recommend exploring the DEEP DIVE Video Tutorial on Centralpoint Master Server.

Hosting (Environment) Requirements

Centralpoint installation mandates a Windows environment, be it on-premise or in the cloud. A single server setup, accommodating both SQL and Centralpoint, serves as the minimum requirement, Windows 2019. Concurrently, Microsoft SQL, available in Standard or Enterprise versions, must be installed. While clients often opt for separate servers for Centralpoint and SQL, this is not obligatory.

Flexibility is a hallmark of Centralpoint installation. It readily adapts to diverse configurations, tailored to your project and environment, ensuring compatibility with VMware and virtual server installations.

Whether it's an on-premise singular setup or a multi-server virtual installation, Centralpoint adapts to your project's unique needs and the environment you operate in.

During installation, Oxcyon provides an installation wizard for your Centralpoint Master. This server interface will typically require its own IP address (and will generally consume an IP address for each (Development, QC, and your live production portal). This means that in addition to the Microsoft environment, you would typically reserve 4 IP addresses for the management of Centralpoint is a staged environment but is not required.
