Alerts View Page not loading in NewUI

Google Maps JS Library is loaded multiple times in a NewUI page.

When Auth is configured, such as a change to the Security Level, the customer record in the master is updated (which was not done earlier).

In the page editor, if the script editor window is open for more than 30 minutes, the save fails with the error message "The request has already been processed".

NewUI Page Render times are considerably higher with 'Ajax' loading of tabs disabled.

[Community] Unable to resize the script window using the mouse.

Print as PDF feature removes styling on div HTML tags.

For OpenEdge Service objects, the attribute list is not shown on the object definition page.

'Column' values under Fields section on the object definition page are blank for OE Service objects. It would be good to show the JSDO field name to which the field is mapped.

Need to include importMode parameter for bulkCreate REST API.

View/Edit permissions configured at the field level were not being honored when editing/creating records via a Grid Control component.

When using LDF permissions, incorrect User information associated with certain records

When a non- administrative user edited an object with a field related to an administrative user, an error was occurring. This issue is now fixed.

In the New UI, Error.jsp is preventing an error message from being shown to users.

The New UI shows a black page when a tab/menu is a stale state (such as when a menu is available but the corresponding menu page is not available),.

Workflows on OESO object were sending the Object ID but not the integration code. This issue is now fixed.

Getting Null Pointer Exception while batch jobs are running automatically. When running manually, no exception is generated.

Batch Job Type : Data Maintenance

Report Section Title & Identifier fields are not updated unless user tabs out from the field.

Selector page dimensions are not getting updated as per width and height page properties.

Changes to 'Tabs' don't reflect when pushing XML from one environment to another.

Roles created with certain field-level permissions lose those permissions when deployed to another tenant.

Storage Server field does not show in the New UI.

When a catalog wasupdated and re-imported in Rollbase, the inclusion of count invoke operation in catalog was not accounted. This issue is now fixed.

Validation triggers were not firing on the workflow action Change Status, even when the old and new status were different

The selected number of records on a search result page was displaying the total record count instead of the search result count. The issue was due to retrieving the filter from the session in New UI code. This has been fixed.

When the view selector was hidden from a list view, there was a JavaScript error thrown if the user checked the Select All option for pages. This was due to improper null check handling in the JavaScript code. This has been fixed.

Group By on views fails if values are blank.

Client-side validation incorrectly enforces users to set value for fields configured as Required, even on Mass Update pages.

An error is generated when a Master/Super admin creates a batch job of the type "Scheduled FTP import" in the customer.

Gauges are not rendered in Record View pages.

Attached Roles are not showing in the Roles section when importing an OE Service application.

For Selector Pages configured for attaching related records, the page is not identified by its original ID.

The rbf_setFieldValue() client-side API does not work on Mass Update pages for Checkbox fields in the NewUI.

All tables on the object definition page stretch beyond default page view size, even if only one table has extra columns. This is an incorrect redirection issue when clicking Save/Cancel from from the Tab edit page.

The client-side API getPicklistCode() is now supported for Picklist, Multi-Picklist, CheckBoxGroup, and RadioButtons fields

The trigger type "Update Field Value" does not work when assigning a lookup/id of an OpenEdge Service object.

When the dropdown list is long and goes beyond the footer, we will show it upwards (where there is room).

An issue occurred when there was no checkbox enabled in a related list. This caused a undefined error when we cleared all selections in the related list. Added proper null check and view page buttons issues are now fixed.

Tokens for current portal visitor are returning no value.

Record Attach action fails if related record has special character (''' i.e. single-quote) in its name.

Performance Issue in New UI because of multiple count calls in a list view.

Tokens in filter were not working for OESO views. {!current_user}.sales_agent gets passed as full text through API. This issue is fixed.

Export to PDF, CSV, XLS , XLSX was not working for list views when the user unchecked Show View Selector checkbox from list view properties. This issue is fixed.

Field-level validation error persisted even after corrective measures had been taken. This issue is fixed.

The client-side API rbf_getPicklistCode() was not returning values after emptying the picklist. This issue is fixed.

Status message after selecting the record should be changed in case of 1-1 relationship

Certain entities are not updating with XML update for very large apps.

Null Pointer Exception during export XML in document template.

Incorrect picklist values are also persisted via picklist control in form pages

Export to XLS, XLSX and CSV were displaying code instead of description on picklist fields. This issue is fixed.

For TextInput, ObjectLink (Record Name), and TextArea fields, field values were not displayed in the current user language on List View and Record View pages. This issue is fixed.

Rollbase is throwing a warning message when updating an XML app using the exactly same APP XML used to create the original app.

When you have TextArea field for an object and add larger text (break by next line or simply larger text), only part of the text was displayed in the record details page. We used over-flow hidden and no work-break. This has been fixed and we displayed entire text as the user provided while creating the object.

The client-side API rbf_showOrHideSection() was not working across all supported browsers. This issue is fixed.

When a user uses Select All (This Page is checked) option or individual selection (This Page is checked), the total selected count that we update in the list view footer was incorrect. Same issue happened when a user selected record after applying filter. When user apply filter we clear all selection but still selected count were shown. This issue is fixed.

Login Blocked Status for a customer not refreshed with Master Reload

The Grid row Action menu (Edit |Delete |View) was hiding pretty fast, which didn't let the user select the action they desired. We made a change to the old behavior where this action menu will be displayed on "Click" instead of "Hover" by default and it stays until user clicks outside or performs any other operation on the page. But if user would like to enable menu on "hover", they can do by overriding this option: "rb.newui.options.listView.showColumnActionMenuOnHover=true"

Steps to load GoogleCharts library in Rollbase NewUI page

"Lock Wait Timeout" issue when processing bulk operation. This issue is fixed.

Progress Rollbase video still visible after "Quick Create"-ing an application not customizable via shared property.

Debug formula works perfectly and the trigger runs successfully.

An error message stating that there were more servers than allowed on a license when that was not the case. This issue is fixed.

The current format appears to be always showing a '$' even though the field is set to 'Other' in new UI

Approval Email Template not auto-populated in different Tenant.

Dynamically update modified fields on a record's Page instead of traditionally refreshing the Page in its entirety.
