Updates and Fixes

Accounts Query Type (AQT) Updates

Image Cache Busting

  • Adds Image Cache Busting to the buildImagePath function. This sets a DateTime on a LocalOption record and appends that to all image requests. This value is stored in the database so that it’s central and not unique per IIS instance. Adds new “clear image cache” button to the Upload file page to the user can force the image urls to update.
    • The “clear image cache” button is being defaulted off while we work through Clear Cache issues. It will be defaulted on in a future release.
    • GLOBAL_SHOW_CLEAR_IMAGE_CACHE can be used to enable the clear image cache button for testing.

Customer Site Maintenance Mode

Adds support for putting an individual Customer Site into Maintenance mode. This will direct the user to a page displaying a configurable logo and message. Optionally, You can set a passcode to bypass the maintenance mode so you can test changes on the site while end users are locked out.
