uPortal 4.0.7 GA Announcement

Jasig is proud to announce the general audience release of uPortal 4.0.7. This release includes 34 bug fixes and improvements on top of the 4.0.6. The largest change in 4.0.7 is the inclusion of a statistics reporting portlet that integrates with the event aggregation added in 4.0.6.

Features and Changes of Note

  • UP-3448 - A reporting portlet has been added to work with the database persistent events and event aggregation. The included reports are for Total Logins, Unique Logins, and Concurrent Users.
  • UP-3038 - The externalId layout structure parameter is now used as part of the URL if specified. The default layouts have been modified to specify an externalId as an example.
  • UP-3560 - Improved default person-directory configuration to enable caching. Existing deployers should review the new file for an example on how to enable attribute retrieval caching.

Updating from 4.0.0-4.0.5
