Cork, Ireland, 30 March 2022.
Planet Crust, the driving force behind Corteza, is excited to announce a new major release: Corteza 2022.3. 2022.3 adds the search tool Discovery to Corteza, along with Compose-Reporter integration, UI configurations, additional API endpoints, user import/export capabilities and a UI for inspecting server-side issues.
Discovery ads hyperlocal search and global federated search to Corteza. Discovery, which uses Open Search, makes several types of searches possible:
- Detailed, sensitive or customized searches by external users with limited roles, e.g. a customer reviewing their home electricity consumption or a patient reviewing medical advice.
- Searches by internal users based on their roles, e.g. based on what data they need to access or on their responsibilities or reporting requirements. The number of roles that can be defined is limitless.
- Searches across multiple instances of Corteza.
With search enabled, new UI elements that allow searching overall accessible records and data will appear in any Corteza web application. For records that allow record viewing via page blocks, Corteza provides ad-hoc views to present record data.
2022.3 adds integration between the low-code app builder Corteza Compose and Corteza Reporter by introducing the reporter page block to show report data on low code pages.
2022.3 adds additional configuration for page configuration and general UI, sidebar and top bar settings.
Additional API Endpoints
2022.3 adds API endpoints with a landing page and 404 pages.
User Import/Export Capabilities
2022.3 adds additional import/export capabilities by adding user import and export to the Corteza Admin. Along with importing/exporting users, you can import/export access control and resource translations to the existing namespace export.
