Support for providing properties by attached files, list documents by properties, and accessing ancestor properties
New and Noteworthy
The following changes may be the most interesting of this release.
Supported Confluence Versions
This version of the projectdoc Toolbox requires at minimum the latest version of Confluence 5.8.x.
Versions 5.5, 5.6, and 5.7 are no longer supported for new features.
With PDAC-718 - Getting issue details... STATUS the projectdoc Toolbox allows to specify document properties as attachments to the Confluence page.
This enhancement makes it easier to add and updated exported properties from a system.
Program the table of documents by a document property with the Tour-by-Property Macro. The property lists references to documents.
The list may also be traversed breadth-first or depth-first to include information that is referenced by the processed documents.
List Ancestor Property
The Parent Property Macro renders a property from the parent document right from version one. The new Ancestor Property Macro now provides access to a property from the first ancestor document matching the specified document type.
In case you have a hierarchy of documents with different doctypes, you may access information from a specific doctype from all children. For instance if systems and subsystems are deployed in an environment then all the systems document can easily access information from the environment document, being the root of a tree of system documents.
The following changes to the free doctype add-ons come with the new version:
- The free doctypes support with their latest version the Short Name and Subject properties
- Blueprint wizards of all doctypes support XHTML in Short Descriptions and space property placeholders in Name and Short Description
For more information, please refer to projectdoc Toolbox 1.16.0 Release Notes#Related Releases.
Due to an internal API change some add-ons that depend on the projectdoc Toolbox need to be updated.
Single Value in Name List Macro
The interpretation of the single value parameter of the Name List Macro has changed. Previously by setting this parameter the first value of a comma-separated list of values has been chosen as the single value.
With this version, the whole value, containing commas, will be treated as the one value.
PDAC-743 - Getting issue details... STATUS
The following topics have to be considered for an upgrade to this version.
Install the new OBR of the projectdoc Toolbox first.
Some issues add additional data to the index. The index is updated when the document is saved. To have access to these new properties in Lucene searches, a re-index is required.
Here is the list of issues that require a re-index to provide the new data:
