Data corruption

  • Fix: the use of some Emoji, depending on you MySQL server settings, could cause your data to be truncated (e.g. losing an entire case log).

User Experience

  • Autocomplete is activated by default after 2 characters now (it used to be 3 by default)
  • Form prefill : Included Contract case in the datamodel.
  • Add support of AttributePhoneNumber which allows launch of phone application on click.
  • Set default search criteria for objects
  • Notification GUI: fix cosmetic issue and save state for the current browser (in the session)
  • When global searching with needles smaller than 'full_text_needle_min', exclude these needles from the search instead of stopping it
  • Exports (csv, xslx, pdf) “Localize Output” option lost when the export has more thant one chunk
  • Related objects count (tab title) not in line with the displayed list (always counting obsolete objects)
  • Failing to bulk delete whenever the scope query contains the % character
  • Added a conf params 'email_default_sender_address' and 'email_default_sender_label' that will be used if a mail has no sender set, to cope with Anti-SPAM systems
  • Could not add a second link (condition: have a date attribute on the link ; regression introduced in 2.4)
  • Portal: Ongoing tickets should be listed the same way as in the console
  • Portal: List of closed tickets not filtered as expected (high cardinality)
  • Portal: Added an information about file max size on forms
  • Portal: Fail to reset password when navigating from an email (hyperlink)

Environment

  • Support of PHP 7.2
  • MySQL strict mode compatibility (5.7 - null replaced 0000-00-00 00:00:00 for DateTime).

Performances

  • Added an index on the ticket ref
  • Dashlet “Header with statistics” requiring less queries to be displayed
  • Now uses one count + group by query instead of one count query per grouping value
  • Avoid multiple count requests in the core API (DBObjectSet::Count)
  • Impact analysis: much better (and faster) processing of graphs containing loops
  • Suppression of obsolesence condition on Ticket (was impacting the performance)

Data model

  • Suppression of obsolesence condition on Ticket (See the chapter on performance)

Robustness

  • Setup: Display the XML errors on the screen
  • Make the deletion of a Synchro Data Source a bit more robust, in case of a missing or already deleted data table.
  • Dashboards: Unknown dashlets (eg. from an uninstalled extension) no longer raise an exception, a fallback is displayed and the XML configuration is still available in editor.
  • Setup on Windows systems: workaround for random behavior of rmdir sometimes failing though the directory is empty
  • Fix application being wrongly set to Archive Mode when it fails to retrieve an object from the database.
  • Cron automatically re-orders its tasks to make sure that every tasks get some time to run, even if a task crashes repeatidly or uses all the time slice to process a big backlog.

Cosmetics

  • Portal: Remove copyright (iTop) from page footer

Internal

  • HTMLSanitizer : add wiki ref to white lists
  • Upgrade Silex library to 2.2 (Which is possible as iTop 2.5 requirements are now PHP 5.6+!)

  • Display of links now support both DBObjectSet and ormLinkSet
  • Enhancement of the data collection for iTop Hub: better detection of the web server version.
  • Linked JS scripts can now be used in ajax pages. This is useful for IPopupMenu extensions which depend on a JS script and are loaded asynchronously when a list of objects changes (for example when changing the target class for a search)
  • Proper use of the “304” (Not modified) HTTP header for InlineImages. Seems that FastCGI is more sensitive to incorrect HTTP headers than MPM…
  • PHPunit is now integrated through composer (inside the directory /test)
  • Portal: Update table's filter hotkeys to prevent unnecessary ajax calls

  • Display stimulus codes in the Datamodel page tab:Lifecycle
  • Fix Fatal error on transition with AttributeBlob or AttributeCaseLog

CSV import

  • Images and File documents can now be exported using CSV and Excel formats (the export provides an URL (with iTop authentication required) where to download the actual image/document).
  • CSV import of documents and images via URLs is supported (including URLs pointing to iTop itself). Administrators can also provide directly the path to a local file on the server.”
  • CSV Import now supports friendlynames as reconciliation keys.
  • Enable CSV import of request template fields
  • Fix: Ticket from emails: duplicated dictionary entries which was an issue on CSV import.

Conf & Setup

  • New configuration parameter 'allow_menu_on_linkset' (boolean, default value false) to display actions in linkset in view mode (new, modify, delete, …).
  • Setup: After a succesfull Setup, XML files are stored under /data with the complete view of the datamodel with and without delta.

  • Setup: supports now changes of Configuration parameter: config db_charset.
  • Setup: New hook available after data load (ModuleInstaller::AfterDataLoad())

Backup

  • Backup: Backup files could not exceed 4Gb (technology limitation). The fix consists in archiving the backup as a tar.gz instead of a zip. As a consequence, installing iTop now requires TWO additional PHP modules: phar/zlib. The zip module remains mandatory because it is used in other places. The restore utility accepts both legacy zip files and brand new tar.gz files. DBBackup::CreateZip is deprecated in favor of DBBackup::CreateCompressedBackup. DBRestore::RestoreFromZip is deprecated in favor of DBRestore::RestoreFromCompressedFile (which autodetects the format for backward compatibility).
  • Backup: Allow database write access during a backup (can still be slow).

Performances

  • Support of PHP7, which divides by two the load on the web server
  • Internal emulation of apc(u), to divide by 5 the load on the web server (varies a lot, depending on the page, and cache hit ratio)

DataSynchro

  • DataSynchro: Enable bulk deletion of Data Synchro Replica
  • DataSynchro: Creation and edition was broken due to the new object set API from ormLinkSet. Backward compatible method have been introduce to ensure plugins and modules compatibility. That being said they are already flagged as deprecated and should not be used. New: Using those deprecated methods will raise a PHP deprecated error.

Internal

  • Reentrance issue on cmdbAbstractObject when coming from an extension implementing iApplicationObjectExtension.
  • Added an index to prevent a slow down when a lot of tickets have been validated by the mean of an approval process
  • Designer Connector has been revamped to avoid MTP temporary errors, diseappearing at the following Setup.
  • #1499: Regression in 2.4.0 beta: setup was failing with the message “cannot redeclare class XXXXXXX_0” when loading some extensions modules.
  • Fix: PHP Warning on not initialized variable $sHTMLValue in cmdbAbstractObject::GetFormElementForField().

Developpers

  • The main menu “Helpdesk” could not be moved upward/downward by the mean of an XML delta (designer)
  • Internal: LoginWebPage title defaultvalue is now a dictionary entry ('UI:Login:Title')
  • Limitation: an a class having too many external keys, the update query fails with message “too many tables”
  • Cleaned up old datamodel (1.x) as it was no longer maintained and could not be upgraded.
  • Show product name on branding logo title instead of a generic “iTop” text.

Portal possibilities

  • Allowed portals are now displayed in the console user menu.

  • Portal: Added UI extension APIs similar to those used in the console (Experimental!)
  • Portal: ManageBrick tabs could show objects that were not supposed to be shown due to a bad OQL interpretation.
  • Portal: Display / download of blob attributes and attachments in the portal was not compatible with portal configuration and silos by-passing.

Console User Interface

  • Improve UI in object details in the console.
