CLOUDMORE 2.25 RELEASE NOTES

Date: 22 September 2017

What’s new in this release?

New and updated features

Role-based access

In this release, we have added new role-based access system with some new roles such as view-only and billing admins, in addition to the existing full administrative role. A view-only admin can see everything but cannot make any changes. A billing admin only has access to pricing and billing and invoices reporting areas of the platform

E-store UI update

The organization e-store has got a new design to match the design of the marketplace. Now service details will open in modal windows. This makes it easier and faster to move between services.

Approval process with amount

A new approval process has been added that triggers on the value of the subscription being purchased and provisioned. The approval process is enabled for an organization as before, and an optional limit for the annual value of a subscription is set. The organization may add subscriptions without approval as long as that annual value is not over the set limit. If the limit is breached, the purchase will need be approved.

Warning message when you deselect a chargeable add-on

When an administrator deselects a chargeable add-on, settings or functionality may be deleted from the platform. A warning message to highlight this has been added.

More granular release numbers

As Cloudmore sometimes releases hot-fixes in between regular releases we have added more granularity to the release sequence numbers. The format is x.xx.x where the last digit shows the hot-fix releases.

Custom service grouping of add-ons

When adding a service add-on is now possible to present a choice list where only one option is selectable,  This is achieved by grouping add-ons. To group items together a group name must be specified. The group name is case sensitive.

Custom login page update

An administrator can add hyperlinks and a background image to the custom branded login.

Updated email system

Cloudmore has rebuilt the email system used by the platform and moved all emails to a template system with language support. All platform emails are logged.
