The OutSystems UI GitHub repository is now available to the public, opening the door to community contributions, feedback, and collaboration. Whether you want to fix a bug, suggest a feature, or enhance existing code, we welcome your contributions to help us improve and build the future of our UI framework. Also, we released an NPM package that you can use as a dev dependency to your repositories and to extend our components' functionalities to suit your specific needs.
OutSystems cloud is now available in the AWS region Ohio, adding a third option to the already available North Virginia and Oregon cloud regions in the US. With these new additions, our enterprise cloud offer is now available in 17 different locations: Sydney, Singapore, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Bahrain, Seoul, Jakarta (Asia Pacific), Ireland, Frankfurt, London, and Cape Town (EMEA) and United States (Northern Virginia, Oregon, Ohio), Canada, and São Paulo (Americas).
If you follow a domain-driven architecture approach, you can now take advantage of the most recent Architecture Mentor pattern, strong dependencies between apps owned by different LifeTime teams, available in AI Mentor Studio. One of the top architecture issues that hinders development teams' agility is having business apps strongly referencing other apps. With this visibility, architects and team leads can plan their backlogs to do the necessary refactoring to bring back the apps independent lifecycle. Also, it increases team agility by not having to align release cycles with other teams — promoting to production as soon as the work is complete.
The external IT users authentication with OpenID Connect was launched in technical preview in August 2022 and is now generally available to everyone fully supported. In a few clicks, you can set an external identity provider to log in your IT users throughout the OutSystems platform, consoles, and tools (Service Studio, Service Center, LifeTime, and Integration Builder, to name a few). Easily delegate user authentication to your IdP of choice, AzureAD, Okta, Ping, or any other supporting OpenID Connect (OIDC). With an external IdP, you may enforce specific security policies, like MFA, password expiration, password complexity, and password rotation.
You can now publish your tailored Integration Builder connector to any other OutSystems infrastructure. This capability is available to the following providers: Salesforce, SAP OData, Dataverse, and Dynamics 365. If you have a commonly used integration, you can contribute to our global community and share that on the Forge helping other developers to be even more productive. Any connector ported to another OutSystems installation is fully customizable in the same way as it was if configured from the start.
The Architecture Dashboard was renamed to AI Mentor Studio, and it's now part of the OutSystems AI Mentor System family — an ever-evolving set of five mentors, namely Code Mentor, Architecture Mentor, Security Mentor, Performance Mentor, and Maintainability Mentor. All include AI-based development, security, and quality analysis tools that provide expert-level assistance across the most critical areas of the software development lifecycle. You'll learn more about the AI Mentor System and its capabilities at NextStep. This update does not impact your current work with the OutSystems Platform. It will only make your experience better.
