October 4th marks the following new feature roll-out to users of Infor Xi Cloud Edition (CE)™.

Infor ION™

  • ION Workflow now includes a step to start another workflow.

  • ION Workflow email notifications now allow locale specific email subjects, logos, and from addresses.
  • ION Workflow notifications that are sent to an empty distribution list are now immediately changes to status of Done. This eliminates the need to manually set the status.
  • ION Event Management now allows custom drill-backs with multiple parameters, for alerts created from event monitors. In the Monitor details page, a new tab is available where you can define your own drill-backs.
  • ION OneView includes the In the details for a mapping version that was used for that specific document timeline.
  • ION Mapper has new function templates in the function editor to create a child element and create a child element with an attribute.
  • ION Mapper now restricts the modification of a mapping once it is approved. Copying the existing mapping and editing the copy is the new process to follow.
  • ION Mapper now allows searching  in the input and output panes on the Testing tab, and in the Generated XSLT pane on the XSLT Editor tab. The search control is opened by pressing Ctrl-F.
  • ION Mapper provides a notification in the mapping detail when the metadata in the Registry has changed for the source or target document. This notification indicates that a new version of the schema is available, so you can refresh the tree as shown in the mapping.
  • ION Mapper has a new function in the function editor called get-elem-by-attr-name-and-value. This function allows you to search for an element having a specific attribute name and value. This is especially useful for name-value structures as available in the UserAreas of BODs.
  • ION Mapper can now assign an empty value, e.g. consisting of one or more spaces, in the function editor when adding a constant of type String,.
  • ION Mapper provides usefule information in the XSLT code that is generated from the mapping  such as the mapping name, description and version, and the date and time. Additionally, a copyright notice is included.
  • ION Registry now allows documents of type JSON and documents of type “any” (ie. an undefined schema) such as CSV or fixed length formats. Use of these document types is limited. See the user guide for more information.
  • In ION Desk modeling pages (such as Document Flows, Mappings or Workflows), a new grid view is added in addition to the existing tiles view. You can switch between tiles and grid using icon buttons at the top of the page. The grid view enables you to see more data without scrolling and to easily scan through the data in a specific column.

  • In the manage pages of ION Desk, the refresh buttons (icons) are moved from the data grid toolbar to the page toolbar. They are now consistent with the refresh buttons on the modeling pages.
