New Runtime Properties

The following runtime properties were added in this release:

PropertyDescriptionDefault Value
ADX_DEFAULT_CACHE_DB_TYPEThis property was missing in previous releases. It's related to initializing a cache database, specifying the DB type.${ADX_DEFAULT_DB_TYPE}
TRIBEFIRE_RUNTIME_OFFER_STAYSIGNEDWhen set to true, the login dialog offers the option Stay signed in. If this option is selected, the session cookie will remain active, even if the user closes the browser session. If it's set to false (or, if the user disables the check box in the login dialog), the session cookie sent to the browser will have no expiry date, thus will be removed when the browser is closed (unless the default behaviour of your browser is different).false
TRIBEFIRE_USER_SESSIONS_MAX_IDLE_TIMESpecifies how long a user session should remain active when there is no activity on the session. After the specified inactive time has passed (i.e. no request with the corresponding session ID has been received by the server), the session is flagged as inactive and consequently removed by a periodic cleanup process. The time span can be specified as a human-readable string, using numbers and the time unit, as in 12h, 30m, 3600s, etc.24h

Connection refused error for Conversion and Statictics

When using Health/Conversion or Health/Conversion/Conversion Statistics from the admin access, you may get the following error in case the health check page cannot be embedded:

In that case, simply click the indicated icon to open the page in a separate tab, where it should work normally.

Cannot migrate legacy contents simultaneously

Due to cache database being shared between repositories, it's not possible for now to run multiple migration jobs from a single legacy repository at the same time. You need to wait for the previous migration to finish before running a new one.
