Following the expansion to the Tokyo region, OutSystems Developer Cloud (ODC) is now also available in Sydney. This new region will allow you to build and deploy apps with reduced latency while supporting data residency needs in Australia. Sydney joins the already available regions of North Virginia, Frankfurt, Singapore, and Tokyo, with more coming online soon.
Extend ODC Apps with Traditional Code
Develop your ODC app without ever hitting a wall by wrapping up existing traditional code solutions in low code. Simply create your code in a traditional coding IDE, upload and publish it in ODC Portal, and it's ready to be added as a public element in your app! We’ll take care of the rest, by leveraging Serverless Computing, running your code in an independent, secure, dedicated environment that will automatically scale as needed.
Improved Performance of ODC Portal in EU and APAC Regions
With ODC Portal runtime now also located in the EU and APAC regions and not centralized in the US, accessing ODC Portal in these regions is now at least 50% faster. We've reduced latency by half, along with the time of backend calls, so expect much faster loading times in your browser or device when accessing features in ODC Portal.
Redesigned Experience with Charts 3.0.0
This version introduces new chart types and a redesigned developer experience that includes more options to customize chart elements without using high-code. To make things even easier, you can try the new sample with working examples and check the step-by-step guide, which will help you understand how to get the most out of the new OutSystems Charts.
IT User Authentication Available for AI Mentor Studio
AI Mentor Studio now supports IT user authentication. This new capability allows you to add an extra security layer and have additional control over who can access AI Mentor Studio. It also allows you to set authentication against the federated identity server if you have an external IdP configured for IT users. Security access is the first line of defense, ensuring that only users you trust log in to your OutSystems platform and consoles.
Video Features in Camera Plugin
We are excited to announce a new update for the OutSystems Camera plugin, which now includes new video recording features. With this update, you can now easily load from the gallery or record high-quality videos within your OutSystems mobile app.
Enforce Password Complexity for IT Users
Security is a hot topic nowadays. With that in mind, we continue to enhance the platform with improvements that mitigate security risks. This time we have enforced the need for complex passwords in IT user accounts that log in with a username and password. So the next time you need to change your IT user password, you'll need to create a strong one. Changing the current password isn’t mandatory, but we highly recommend all IT users do it. Available starting from LifeTime version 11.17.0.
New App Versions and Stages Overview in ODC
Reduce the lead time of changes and the troubleshooting time with the new app versions and stages overview. You can quickly identify where your app versions are staged in the delivery cycle and use that information to make faster decisions, especially in troubleshooting scenarios, or just to understand if a new app version is available for testing.
Extend ODC Apps with Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle Integrations
Integrating with Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle DBS is easier than ever. All the heavy lifting is taken care of — you just need to create your connection in ODC Portal, select the required entities and attributes, and it's ready to be consumed in ODC Studio like any other entity, while keeping the app secure and scalable. More providers will be supported soon, so stay tuned!
ODC Expands to Tokyo
We're pleased to announce that OutSystems Developer Cloud (ODC) is now available in Tokyo. This new region will allow you to build and deploy apps with reduced latency while supporting data residency needs in Japan. Tokyo joins the already available regions of North Virginia, Frankfurt, and Singapore, with more coming online soon.
Manage End-User Groups in ODC
Accelerate end-user management by bringing end-user roles and users together in ODC. With a couple of clicks in ODC Portal, you can now create a group, add a set of end-user roles, and add all the users that should have those roles.
New Patterns in AI Mentor Studio Brought by Our AI-Powered Engine
Increase the security of your OutSystems apps with the new code pattern “unprotected screen aggregates (anonymous or registered) exposing system entities”, with the latest AI Security Mentor update. Plus, two new patterns in the Maintainability Mentors: “unreachable logic” and “unused actions (non-public) in module” to help you deal with the so-called dead code.
Stripe Integration Available in Payments Plugin
Add a comprehensive payment solution to your mobile apps and allow customers to buy with Apple and Google Pay. Our Payments plugin now integrates with Stripe, one of the world’s leading payment gateways, in addition to the Apple Pay and Google Pay wallets. Our intuitive integration process will guide you through the steps required to set up and configure Stripe on your OutSystems mobile app, so you can start accepting payments right away.
OutSystems UI Repository Is Now Public
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.
Consume REST API With Multipart/Form-Data
The method multipart/form-data is now available when consuming REST API. You typically use these requests for file uploads and for transferring data of several types in a single request (for example, a file along with a JSON object). Multipart requests combine one or more sets of data into a single body, separated by boundaries, where each form field has its section in the payload with internal HTTP headers.
Patch Method on Exposed REST Services
You can now expose OutSystems REST services as a patch method. With this latest release, we're covering all of the most common methods on the REST protocol: Patch, Get, Put, Post, and Delete.
New Deploy All Functionality
It is now possible to deploy all prepared modules at once after the Platform Server finishes upgrading. The Deploy All is another improvement from the Flexible Upgrades initiative that aims to reduce publish time and improve resilience during a platform upgrade, with the ability to resume development even before the preparation step finishes. To have your factory fully updated after each upgrade, you no longer need to do a solution publish or deploy one by one until the factory is fully published; use the new Deploy All functionality. The platform takes care of all required publishes, and you'll save a lot of time.
OutSystems O11 Cloud Expands to Ohio in the US
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).
Bulk Selection in AI Mentor Studio
Managing technical debt can become tedious with many findings if you have to update their status by selecting them individually. To speed up and ease the process, we’ve launched the bulk selection in the Report area of AI Mentor Studio, and you can now change the status of several findings at the same time. All previous functionalities remain the same, such as adding a reason to resolve as won't fix or as a false positive status. Make your teams ten times more productive going through the list of findings, ensuring that the spare time can be wisely used for other activities.
