FintechOS 20.1.3

April 7th, 2020

With this release, the FintechOS platform offers more options to include in your deployed packages, renames several aspects of the Digital Journey, adds more methods to the Client SDK, and more. Several issues were also fixed. Read about all the improvements and fixes below.

What's New

Redefined Digital Journeys

Form Driven Journeys and Custom Journeys have been renamed to Form Driven Flows and Custom Flows respectively. For details, see the FintechOS Studio User Guide.

Form Mock-ups

Form Driven mock-up flows allow you to design a Form Driven Flow without having an underlying data model. This lets consultants and business analysts quickly define the general layout of the user interface. Developers can then attach a data model to the mock-up, map entity attributes to the corresponding form fields, and work on any additional back-end configurations. For details, see the FintechOS Studio User Guide.

Enhanced Deployment Packages

In addition to metadata, you can include entity data and report templates in a single deployment package, via enhanced deployment packages. An enhanced doployment package is a .zip archive that bundles together metadata, entity data, and report templates in a standardized format. For details, see the FintechOS Studio User Guide.

Automatically Create File Upload Subfolders

You can automatically group uploaded files into folders based on the last three characters in their file name (excluding the file extension). For details, see the Innovation Core User Guide.

ARM Templates Support

Azure Blob storage for file uploads now supports automatic deployment through Azure Resource Management templates. For details, see the Innovation Core User Guide.

Client SDK Object: formScope

The formScope object was added to the Client SDK to allow sharing of user-defined variables and functions between different JavaScript attributes of an entity form. For details, see the Client SDK Reference Guide.

Client SDK Method: formData.refreshBusinessStatus

The formData.refreshBusinessStatus method was added to the Client SDK to refresh the current record's business status. For details, see the Client SDK Reference Guide.

Client SDK Method: formData.refreshForm

The formData.refreshForm method was added to the Client SDK to refresh the current form. For details, see the Client SDK Reference Guide.
