  • Currently, when multiple validation regular expressions are defined for a document level field, value is matched against all the regular expressions and if value doesn’t match with any of the regular expression, field value is considered as invalid. New functionality has been added so that administrators can choose the logical AND/OR between regular expressions for a document level field. Configuration for the same has been provided on admin UI. In case AND is selected, field value will be marked as valid only if it matches against all the regular expressions whereas in case of OR, it will be marked valid if it matches against any of the regular expression.
  • Enhanced functionality for Learn DB functionality. Now, it will look for the mappings defined in the current batch class only which is being edited.
  • Wherever regex need to be defined for any of the pattern input text box, there will be a facility to choose regex patterns from set of regular pattern expressions. User can select a regex group from the list of groups. For each group there will be list of regex pattern shown to the user. User can select any of the regex to populate the regex text box. Admin can also add/edit or delete any of the regex group and regex patterns corresponding to any regex group.

  • Currently there is only one regex pattern that is used for column extraction and validation. Now there will be two regex patterns for each table column, column pattern and validation pattern. Column pattern will be used for column extraction while validation pattern will be used for column validation.
  • At table column info listing page, there will be a feature where user can add some of the columns from the pool of default columns provided. Admin can always add/edit the default columns provided in the columns pool. This is an application scope feature. Table column pool will be accessible from every batch class.

Ephesoft Enterprise Edition 3.0

NEW FEATURES

Super Admin functionality

Version 3.0 has introduced two levels of admins. An admin and a Super Admin.
Roles of Admin
Admin would be responsible for configuring batch classes assigned to him by Super Admin. An admin can modify the plugin properties (configurations for different plugins) present in the batch classes accessible to him. Admin no longer would be able to Import/Copy batch classes on his own. These rights have been revoked from Admin group. However Admin can modify the workflow configurations for the batch classes assigned to him (changing the order of plugins, adding plugins etc) but will not be able to edit the Batch Class Details. Admins would no longer be able to assign\remove roles to\from any batch class.
Roles of Super Admin
Super Admin would have all the permissions that an admin can have along with that he has access to all the Batch Classes that exist in the System. Super Admin can import/copy any number of batch classes as well as can also edit the Batch Class detail and workflow configuration. User of such roles will be able to see all batch classes on Batch Class Management screen, all batch instances on Batch instance management screen and all batches which are in REVIEW OR VALIDATION state on Batch List screen.
Besides this a user who has super admin role can assign batch classes to other user of different roles. Only then other users can see that batch class and batches corresponding to that batch class on screens.
Super Admin Role Configuration
Super admin role/roles (group/groups) can be configured in application.properties file. user.super_admin=admin;;role1 So admin and role1 will be treated as super admin roles (groups).
Ephsoft should wait for complete batch downloading before start processing:
Ephesoft waits for a batch to get downloaded completely before it is picked up for processing. It checks if there no change in the batch folder for more than 30 seconds then only batch would be sent for processing.

Create Back up of a batch

Ephesoft can create back up of original files which are placed in the watch folders. These back up files are created inside the batch folders. This feature can be turned on by configuring a property in the application.properties file.
create_batch_instance_backup =on

License expiry message on Login Screen

License expiry message is shown to user at the time of login.Before how many days this message will be shown is configured in license.info.properties file as follows.
ephesoft.license.server.licenseExpiryMsgDays=30
So message will appear before 30 days of license expiry on login screen . This property is configurable whenever license is being generated for any customer.
Release 1.jpg

On back button click warn user about data lost

On clicking back button on Batch class management screen a warning message is displayed to user if there is some unsaved data and user is moving back to Batch Listing screen.
Release 2.jpg
Release 3.jpg

Double click on Key Value field listing table

On double clicking any Key Value record in the key value field listing table appropriate KV or Adv KV screen is displayed depending upon the type of record under selection.
