On April 6th, 2018 Scribe released an update to SCRIBE Online. You can read all the details of the changes here. In this post about the update, I want to go over some of the stuff I have seen while working with this new update, and it's an AMAZING update to the platform. Here are my highlights:
- Performance - There does appear to be improvement to how well the platform functions in Chrome (Chrome is my primary browser). Previously, I did have some performance issues in Chrome and on larger map's I would have to dump my cache or exit chrome and re-launch to speed it back up again (not always the case, but did need done from time to rime). This appears to be eliminated for me. I can clearly see marked improvements when it comes to lag and performance. *See bullet point 4 under Platform which is under Enhancements.
- Agent Request Logs - Users now have the ability to request the logs from the agent without logging into the server where the agent is installed to get them. Simple go to the agent in Scribe Online and click on the gear that will appear on the right side of the agent table. Click on "Request Logs". This will download a zip file with the logs for you to review. *See Agents section.
- Revision History - At the bottom of each mapping you will see a "Revision Comment" box. While working on a mapping you can insert a comment into this box to log what you are updating on the map. Every time you click "Apply" of "Ok" to save the map, a revision is stored. This way if you need to go back and restore a previous revision you can. To view the revision history go to the map in your solution and click on the gear to the right of your map and look for "Revisions" I will do a more detailed blog post on this one in the future. * See Maps Section.
- Debugging - This was a bug that I ran into previously. In previous release when debugging sometimes the block wouldn't enter where the error happens. This could cause confusion as to what the problem was. Also the error when this happened wouldn't appear. This bug has been squashed. Debugging is working like a charm and errors are properly appearing and making it really easy to figure out what is happening when debugging a map. * See Debug Section
There are a lot of bug fixes and enhancements in this release. What I highlighted in this post is only a small amount of what is involved in this release. These are the ones that I choose to highlight as they are perhaps the most notable and easily recognizable by people using the platform. Again, for a complete list of bug fixes and enhancements, head over to the SCRIBE Success Community and check out the release notes.
