Release notes

=======

October 26th, 2020

Updates

  • Revisions now have tags that show which ones are Latest, Published, and Live. These show up anywhere you look at revisions, but will be most noticeable in the Library Edit screen and the revision selection dropdown on the Compare screen. You’ll also find it on the resource edit screens and a few other places.
  • Determining which revision to add to your Library should be much easier now because you can now initiate a Compare directly from the Library Edit screen.

Updates

  • Extensions linked to discontinued extension packages now have an indicator on their extension cards. When copying properties, discontinued extensions are not copied to the target property.
  • Newly created properties now have “Run rule components in sequence” on by default.
  • SFTP Hosts must now use a port on the allowed list. (See SFTP Hosts for the full list.)

August 19th, 2020

Features

  • Platform Permissions: When setting up permissions in the admin console for Platform Launch, a new option is available to allow or restrict access based on the platform type. Currently, the platform types are “Web” and “Mobile.” With this change, users cannot create, edit, or delete properties & extensions packages if they do not have the appropriate platform permission. By default, all users are given access to both platforms.

Bug Fixes

  • An extension developer could discontinue an extension package that was in development, creating an issue where the developer could no longer POST or PATCH new versions of the extension package. This has been resolved by removing the ability to discontinue extension packages in development. See Discontinue an ExtensionPackage for more info.

July 7th, 2020

Features

  • Rule Component Sequencing: Check Run rule components in sequence in your property settings. When enabled, the Platform Launch runtime adds rule conditions and actions to a processing queue when the rule event is triggered. The queue is processed on a FIFO basis with timeouts available on individual components. See the Rules page for more information on available settings and details.
  • Promises in Core - Custom Code: You can do asynchronous tasks in Core - Custom Code boxes. In order to achieve this, you can return a Promise from your JavaScript custom code or use the new onCustomCodeSuccess() and onCustomCodeFailure() functions in HTML custom code. More information is available in the Core Extension reference doc.

Features

  • Left-rail navigation: The main pages for your day-to-day work within a property are moving from under the property name into a collapsible left-rail. These are nowbalso organized into some logical groups based on usage intent and patterns.
  • App breadcrumbs: Breadcrumbs have been added throughout the app. You should always have context now, regardless of what screen you’re looking at. This includes showing you rule names when you’re modifying components, telling you how you got four levels deep in the compare screen you’re looking at, and a few other things. The top of the screen has been reorganized to maximize the amount of screen space you have for your day-to-day tasks. You should still be able to find everything you’re looking for with ease.
  • A new endpoint was added: {{extension_package_id}}/versions allows API users to see all versions of extension packages that are public. API users can also see version information for extension packages that are in devlopment or private for orgs they belong to. See https://developer.adobelaunch.com/api/reference/1.0/extension_packages/

Bug Fixes

  • Notes now show show the name of the user who entered the note.
  • In some cases, users were not able to download previous versions of archive production libraries due to a CORS issue. This has been fixed.
  • A no-cache header was added to the UI. Previously users had to hard refresh to get updates when JS files changed.

June 9th, 2020

Features

  • Property Overview: the overview page was long overdue for an update. Now after you select your property, we’ll show you some some important information about your property including: the most recent production publish date, libraries that need approval, extensions that have available updates, and a list of your most recent activity within that property. We’ve also got some helpful links and will use this page to notify you about product releases and technical advisories as needed.

June 2nd, 2020

Features

  • Discontinue Extension Packages: Extension developers can now discontinue their extension packages. A discontinued extension package is no longer available for new installations from the Platform Launch catalog. However, existing installations continue to work as expected. Please see Discontinue an ExtensionPackage in the developer docs for more details.

May 9th, 2020

Bug Fixes

  • When using Safari <= v12, users were not able to access Adobe Experience Platform Launch due to an X-FRAME-OPTIONS header that was being set incorrectly.

April 24th, 2020

March 18th, 2020

Bug Fixes

  • When a user tried to create a rule with a comma in the name, they would receive a false “duplicate name” error.

Features

  • When a rule component (event, condition, or action) is updated, the updated_at attribute for the rule it belongs to is also updated. This more accurately reflects that the behavior of the rule has changed by modifying one or more of its components. If you use callbacks for rules, you will see an increase in rule updated_at callbacks. See https://developer.adobelaunch.com/api/reference/1.0/rule_components/ for more information.

March 3, 2020

Updates

  • The Platform Launch sign-in and sign-out UI has been significantly improved. Switching between Platform Launch and other Adobe products is now also much smoother. Finally, if you have a single account with rights to multiple companies, this is also dramatically improved.
  • The structure of Platform Launch URLs is now more consistent with other Adobe products. The new URL format replaces https://launch.adobe.com with https://experience.adobe.com/#/@companyID/launch/. The old URLs redirect to the new ones, but you should update your bookmarks to save a few seconds each time you access Platform Launch .

February 19, 2020

Features

  • Rows per page: List pages now allow you to specify how many rows you’d like to see on each page.
  • Pagination: List pages now have improved pagination that shows you how many pages are available and lets you jump to a specific page. Page numbers are based on the number of rows per page

February 6, 2020

Features

  • The JavaScript runtime library has been updated to include version 2.2.1 of js-cookie. A vulnerability was discovered in version 2.1.4 that was previously deployed. The next time a library is built, this new version of js-cookie will be automatically included.
  • Code minification errors of user defined custom code, which may occur while building a library, have been enhanced to give the user more context about the error.

January 16, 2020

Bug Fixes

  • The republish library feature would sometimes not purge the Platform Launch asset on Akamai properly and result in the original library still being served.

Features

  • Enhanced extension package validation is now performed at the time of upload.

January 07, 2020
