The following user features have been added in this release:
|Friend requesting is simplified and streamlined
||When you create a friend request, it now displays in a plain text box with default text instead of appearing in the rich text editor. The benefit of this feature is that it simplifies and speeds up friendship connection. You type a quick note or just use the default text for the request and click to send.
|Retrieving raw data from blogs, forum threads/replies, media galleries, wikis
||The Public API supports using a PostTarget of "Raw" for returning the raw body for a wiki page (to get a version of the body that can be edited).
|Updating or adding a user, a group, properties, or content to blogs, forums, and media galleries via the APIs
Update existing extended attributes or add new ones via the platform and in-process APIs, creating more access for platform extensibility.
Extended attributes are key/value pairs that serve as extensibility points. The benefit of this feature is that you can use these extensibility points to add any type of property to a blog, forum, or media gallery. You can add content (including blog posts, forum threads, forum replies, or files). Or you can add a user or a group.
(Note: In Telligent Evolution 6.0, we added read-only access to extended attributes. via REST and public APIs.)
|Retrieving profile field groups and profile fields via the APIs
Retrieve the following profile information via the platform and in-process APIs:
- All profile field groups
- All profile fields in a profile field group
- All profile fields
The benefit of this feature is that it provides more access for platform extensibility.
|Retrieving the LastUpdatedDate for user-specific profile fields via the APIs
Pull only what has changed in a particular user's profile via the platform and in-process APIs. The benefit of this feature is that it significantly improves the performance of profile synchronization with integrated applications so that you don't have to iterate through a list to determine what has changed and what hasn't.
