What's new in Cora Orchestration?

Cora Orchestration is the next generation of Cora SeQuence. With this release, the Cora Orchestration portal is ready for production and introduces new ways to customize its UI. Starting with V10.1, it's easier to deploy portal customizations and upgrade to later versions.

Main features

  • Portal enhancements: Cora Orchestration V10.1 portal is fully functional and ready for production. It introduces some new functionality and updated UI.
    For more details, see this article.
  • Portal customization: You can now customize the portal's color theme, replace the logo, create and modify menu items, change the close button behavior, and more. You apply your customization using a provided template that serves as the base code.

Breaking changes

If you've customized your portal in V9.x, and you upgrade to V10.1, you need to reconsider your custom configurations and adjust them to the new portal technology.

HTML tags within labels

In the Form control <sq8:Label …>, the htmlEncoding property is set to True by default. So all the labels inside the HTML tags are displayed as plain text. 

To avoid displaying labels as plain text, you need to turn off the HTML encoding by setting the htmlEncoding property to False.

<sq8:Label … htmlEncoding="False">

Deprecated features

  • Manage delegations: The portal doesn't support managing delegations from this version onwards.
  • Manage sharing: The sharing feature has been removed from the portal. However, it is still possible to share instances from a Form or Task.
  • Design variables: All design variables have been deprecated. If you used design variables to customize your portal, you need to reapply the customization using the provided customization template.
