Cora SeQuence 9.8.3 Release Notes

12 APRIL 2022

This update includes some enhancements, and a resolved issue.


  • Elasticsearch performance improvements: In our continuous efforts to improve performance, we have made the following updates to the Elasticsearch functionality. 
    • Indexing job HTML transformers: We have introduced HTML transformers that transform the indexing data to reduce the Elasticsearch database size and enhance the performance.
      You need to define these transformers in the JSON while configuring the Elasticsearch connection.
      For more details, see this article.

      Using HTML transformers is optional, you may choose to continue using the Elasticsearch without HTML transformers.

    • Disable index changes in closed tables: We have disabled the index changes in closed tables to reduce the load and enhance the Elasticsearch performance. However, you can enable index changes by setting the value of trackClosedTableChanges and hasClosedTable to true.
  • Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) authentication library update: With end of support for Azure AD Graph API soon, we have updated our applications to use the Microsoft Graph API as recommended by Microsoft.
    For details, see this article.
  • Support OAuth authentication for sending emails: We now support sending emails using Microsoft Graph for Exchange Online. This allows an option to send emails more securely based on OAuth authentication. Sending emails using SMTP with basic authentication remains the same.
    For more details, see this article.
  • Support HTTP Consumer service with OAuth 2.0 On-Behalf-Of flow: HTTP Consumers now support Microsoft identity platform and OAuth 2.0 On-Behalf-Of flow. This allows integration to external services using the current authenticated user.
    For more details, see this article.
  • We have indexed some of the Cora SeQuence database tables and have updated some HotOperations procedures to enhance overall performance.
  • You can now configure application variables to determine the number of items on which Team Leaders and Operations Managers can perform multiple actions.
RoleApplication variableValue
Team LeaderPortal.HotOperations.TeamLeader.MaxSelectionSize
  • Default 25
  • Max 100
Operations ManagerPortal.HotOperations.OpsManager.MaxSelectionSize
  • Default 25
  • Max 100

If a Team Leader or Operations Manager selects more items than the maximum value configured or the maximum value allowed by the system (100), a message is displayed, and the action is cancelled. 

For more information about application variables, see this article.

Breaking change

After the upgrade to V9.8.3, you need to update the integration with Azure AD according to the Microsoft Graph properties.
