The actions performed by these users are then notified back to the Doc. Workflow owner (status changes, editing, forwards).
    • Related tickets: #1168, #1169
  • Added Notifications for favorite posts in News Feed
  • Related ticket: #1419

On Reports component:

The tasks regarding the Social Portal, Reports and Workspace Tree have been all released in the gCube 2.13 release.

NKUA Activities

NKUA activities for this period include:

  • Working on the refactorization of the results portlet. This portlet was using the CM framework directly and not through ASL. As results are retrieved from different sources, this portlet should support such results. In addition ASL libraries should be used instead of direct invocation to gcube services. (Related ticket: #1341)
  • UserProfile portlet is changed. As a first step only the selection of presentable fields are kept in the UI. (#925)
  • Started working on the visual alignment of the Android gcube search application (#1152)
  • Started working on creating a gwt-openlayers layer for time series filtering (#1549)

Several components are released in the 2.13.0 release:

  • FullTextIndexManagement portlet 2.0.0
  • IRBootstrapper portlet 2.1.0
  • UsersManagement portlet 1.7.1
  • ElasticSearch portlet 1.0.0
