New features

The following new feature has been introduced in Elvis 6.3.1:

  • Security: using Secure Session cookies. Elvis Server can be now be configured to issue HTTPS-only session cookies by adding the 'Secure' directive to these cookies.

Cookies with the 'Secure' directive are only sent by Web browsers when they connect to the server over HTTPS. This prevents the session cookie from being exposed over an unencrypted channel when for example a user's Web browser is (un)intentionally directed to HTTP instead of HTTPS.

Using Secure Session cookies is controlled through the following option of the cluster-config.properties.txt file and is enabled by default when HTTP is disabled:

session.cookie.secure=auto

For more information, see Elvis 6 security updates overview.

New features

The following new features have been introduced in Elvis 6.1.1:

Changes

Compared to Elvis 5, the following changes have been made in Elvis 6.1.1:

  • Licensing. Assigning a license to users or user groups now also determines which clients they have access to; it is not possible anymore to specify this separately. Example: users with a Standard license will automatically have access to the Pro client, Brand portal, and InDesign client. For more information, see Controlling user access to clients and client features in Elvis 6.
  • Desktop AIR client removed. The Desktop client that was based on Adobe AIR technology has been made obsolete. Its features are now available in the Pro client (for end users to work with the available assets) and the Management Console (for system administrators for setting up and managing Elvis Server).
  • Elvis Admin pages. Changing any of the configuration files through the use of the Elvis Server Admin pages can now only be done by clicking its link on the Change Config page and making the changes directly on the page. Updating a property by running a URL is not possible anymore.
  • Security options. The following changes related to security have been made:
  • The configuration option 'accessControlAllowOrigin' has been replaced by 'security.accessControlAllowOrigin'
  • The configuration option 'security.xFrameOptionHeaders' has been replaced by 'security.antiClickjackHeaders'
  • The configuration option 'security.enableSecureHtmlPreviews' has been renamed to 'security.sandboxPreviews'
  • API Authchred.Authcred authentication does not support anymore the ability to modify data; only retrieving data (GET/OPTION/HEAD requests) such as downloading assets is supported. Integrations that want to modify data should use another form of authentication.
  • API REST login. The following parameters of the REST API - Login are not supported anymore: 
  • failUrl
  • JSESSIONID
  • locale
  • nextUrl
  • SessionId
  • timezoneOffset
  • Changes to REST APIs. Because of improved security measures in the REST API of Elvis 6, all data changing APIs only accept POST requests, not GET requests. Also, the POST request needs to include a cross-site request forgery (csrf) token. For more information, see Elvis 6 REST API - Performing a POST request with a csrf token.

Known issues

The following issues are known for Elvis 6.1.1:

  • Automatically exporting assets from Elvis to Enterprise. The process of automatically exporting assets from Elvis to Enterprise is currently not possible. The tool that was available in the Desktop client of Elvis 5 is not yet available in Elvis 6.

Note: Assets can of course still be moved from Elvis to Enterprise manually through drag and drop.
