The following list will give a quick overview about the newest improvements that contentACCESS version 3.9 brings to you:
✓ Virtual drive writeback: Files that are archived with the shortcutting method can now be edited directly through the shortcut. Changes (versions) will be applied to the file in the archive the shortcut is pointing to.
✓ contentACCESS Teams application: We are very happy to introduce you contentACCESS Teams app! This application will let you search in your contentACCESS archive and share the result(s) with collaboration partners directly in MS Teams, without the need to switch to or use any other application! BETA
✓ FTS archiving for Email archive: Email archive is now working via Fast Transfer Stream, thanks to which it is much faster and robust.
Update from older versions
✓ Update path: Update is supported from contentACCESS version 3.1 and later. Older versions must be first updated to contentACCESS 3.1 and then from version 3.1 to the latest version.
If the update is done from an earlier version than 3.3, then some new features must be configured manually after the update.
One of these features is the Task runner, which requires a resource storage, where the export files will be stored. This storage must be configured in System -> System -> Resource storage settings. This store must be accessible by all contentACCESS nodes inside a cluster, so it is highly recommended to use a network share.
✓ Mail app activation: As a result of redesigning the Mail app activation method in contentACCESS Email Archive, new permissions “Org Marketplace Apps” and “User Options” are needed for the super user in order to work.
✓ Outlook forms: If the update is done from an earlier version than 3.4, then as a result of some internal changes in the email archive shortcut format, the Outlook forms must be updated to the latest version to maintain the correct functionality. For contentACCESS 3.8, Outlook forms must be also republished due to authentication changes.
✓ Remote file archiving: While updating from contentACCESS 3.6, existing remote agent definitions will not work, since some of the database structures have been moved from file system archive database to the tenant database.
✓ SQL server support: The minimum required SQL version was increased from MS SQL 2008 to MS SQL 2012.
✓ Redesigned filtering: The old filtering was converted to the new format. Therefore, we recommend checking all job filtering settings after the update from 3.7 or earlier.
✓ .NET Framework support: The minimum required .NET Framework version was increased in contentACCESS 3.7 from .NET 4.5 to .NET 4.5.2.
