With the release of Enterprise Server 10.8.0, the functionality of archiving files was partly moved from the dedicated import module to the Elvis plug-in for Enterprise Server. This applied to archiving Digital articles plus all images, audio files, and video files that are present in the Dossier in which the Digital article is stored.
With Enterprise Server 10.9.0, the functionality of archiving layouts has now also been moved from the dedicated import module to the Elvis plug-in for Enterprise Server. As a result, the import module itself is not supported anymore.
In short, the process of archiving layouts works as follows:
- An Issue is set to a particular publication date.
- At a certain period after the publication date, layouts that are assigned to the Issue are automatically archived by a scheduled action.
- During this process, the following takes place:
- The layout is added to a folder in the 'Archive Zone' in Elvis
- Files that are placed on the layout (including those on the pasteboard) are also archived to this folder (limitations and conditions apply). These files are re-linked to the layout to make it possible to restore the layout when needed.
- Output files (in PDF or EPS format) can optionally also be archived together with the layout.
- The layout is removed from Enterprise.
- The placed images are removed from Enterprise and/or (when applicable) from the Production Zone in Elvis.
For more information, see Archiving InDesign layouts to Elvis 6 from Enterprise 10.9 or higher.
By default, when a Digital article and/or one of its images is restored, the Workflow Status of that file is set to the status that is configured as the first status for that Brand.
In some workflows it might be desired to have a restored file set to a different Workflow Status than the first one. This can now be configured on the Brand Maintenance page through the following settings:
- Default Status Restored Digital Article
- Default Status Restored Image
For more information, see Archiving Digital articles to Elvis 6 from Enterprise 10.8 or higher.
The following changes have been made in this version of Enterprise Server:
- Compatibility. Various changes have been made to the compatibility between Enterprise Server and other systems, as shown in the following table.
Removed: The AMF protocol for all Web services.
Integrators should use SOAP or JSON-RPC instead.
|Apple MacOS||Stopped: Support for running Enterprise Server on MacOS.|
|Cognito||Added: Cognito can now also be used as a single sign-on (SSO) service.|
|Content Station 9||Discontinued: As a result of the removal of support for the AMF protocol, Content Station 9 cannot be used in combination with Enterprise Server 10.9 or higher.|
Stopped: Support for the import module which was previously used for archiving files from Enterprise to Elvis. All functionality has been moved to the Elvis plug-in for Enterprise Server.
As a result, the ELVIS_ARCHIVED_STATUSES option in the config_elvis.php file is also no longer supported.
Changed: The 'Author' field in Enterprise Server has been changed to a multi-value field to match the 'Creator' field in Elvis which was changed to a multi-value field in Elvis 6.43.
Removed: Support for Overruled Brands has been removed.
For the impact on custom Server plug-ins, see below.
|ProxyForSC||Added: The Proxy for Smart Connection has been upgraded to 1.3.|
Removed: Support for Zend Framework 1.
Integrators should use Zend Framework 3 instead.
- Overruled Brands and custom Server plug-ins. As a result of the removed support for Overruled Brands, integrators should check the following:
- Functions in custom Server plug-ins. When present, remove calls to the following functions:
|Removed function||Removed from class or module|
- When the following references are used in the plug-in, remove them
- The OverrulePublication flag on Issue, AdmIssue or Targets > Issue data objects.
- The 'overrulepub' field in SQL.
- The 'issue' field in SQL for the smart_states, smart_publsections and smart_editions tables.
- Note that when integrating your client application through Enterprise Server Web services, that Enterprise Server will:
- Ignore the PublicationOverrule flag in workflow Web service requests and return null in its responses.
- Show an error when the PublicationOverrule flag is set to true when creating or updating Issues through the administration Web services.
- Custom metadata properties. Setting the minimum or maximum value of a custom property to 0 (zero) now means that 0 is the limit. To set no limit, the field should be left empty. In previous versions, 0 meant that no limit is set.
- Axaio MadeToPrint. The following has been changed:
- The Axaio MadeToPrint plug-in is now provided as a dedicated Enterprise Server plug-in.
- Axaio MadeToPrint now appears on the Integration page of Enterprise Server.
- Support is now available for:
- InDesign client processing
- Prioritization of processing
- The AxaioMadeToPrint/webapps/mtpsetup.php script has been adjusted and cannot be called directly. It needs to be accessed by clicking MadeToPrint on the Integration page of Enterprise Server.
