New in this release
1. Backup and Restore Apps
Users can now take backup of their apps locally and restore them back in any connection.
In start screen user will get buttons to Backup and Restore App(s)
In Backup App(s) screen user will have to select Source first and then he can select multiple Apps for backup. It also remembers the last backup location to keep it consistent.
After successful backup the above screen appears from where user can directly open the location where backup file is saved.
Restore app screen allows user to select one or more Target connection where user can browse and select one or more App backup files to restore multiple apps in multiple targets.
2. Filtered Configured Lookup
This feature provides ability to filter records for Configured Lookup.
User can now add filters similar to Query filters while configuring Lookup options.
In addition to regular filter types, this filter screen has one extra filter type called “Mapped Cell Reference” which takes the value from Mapped Field in selected row while opening Lookup window. User can configure up to 5 Mapped Cell Reference filters.
The new lookup record selection screen allows user to select multiple records. At runtime user can select multiple rows and click Lookup which will show the above Lookup records selection screen. User can enable “Select Multiple Values” and then user can select multiple records which will be inserted in the order of user selection.
3. Session Variables and Between operator
With this release Valorx Fusion supports 5 different Session Variables while creating filters in Query filters and in Rules editor as well.
User can create filters using new Filter Type named “Session Variables” which provides different values like Current User, User Full Name, User Email, Username and Org Id. Session variable “Current User” is only available for reference datatype which has User as lookup object.
Between operator is also supported with relevant data types. User can click the operator to toggle between inclusive and exclusive behavior of the Start and End values.
4. Multiple Basic Workflows
Data Modeling screen can have multiple Basic Workflows and User can switch between multiple workflows to fine tune maps, queries and workflows all form the same place.
User can now select existing queries to create or edit basic workflows.
And guess what, User can now create new Queries and Maps straight from the expanded card of selected object too.
These new set of features makes Data Modeling a one stop shop to create queries, maps and workflows to get started with your app straight from the Data Modeling screen itself.
