Updates, Bug and Other Fixes

  • Automated DocGen Runs that involved Outbound Messaging that may error for some reason will no longer result in XML gibberish when viewing the Outbound Message monitoring request in Salesforce

  • Visualforce Page parameters set for DocGen Package Templates using Visualforce pages are working again.
  • Proper error messages will now be provided in cases where Automated DocGen Runs fail due to timeout issues. Timeout issues typically occur due to a handful of reasons, typically with large amounts of data. If you encounter this error please reach out to support for assistance.
  • Errors will now be provided for those rare cases they previously were not in some automatic docgen runs.
  • Updated the error message for URL based template files if the file type can not be determined or is missing.
  • Text labels for "eSignLive" have been updated to "OneSpan Sign" to reflect updated branding by OneSpan (formerly Vasco, eSignlive).

Updates, Bugs, & Other Fixes

  • DocGen Packages that utilize Word documents for email body templates which include Components Groups that contain bullets with hyperlinks will no longer cause the document generation process to error.

  • Resolved an issue that prevented some generated documents from being saved to Box if the associated Box account a large number of folders with names that are similar or the same. 
  • DocGen packages should no longer error for scenarios using our processDdpComponent when you are logged in as another user. Scenarios such as these would surface in cases when you may be testing your docgen packages and need to log in as a community or portal user.
  • Transparent backgrounds are now support for Rich Text Content. This particular update helps in cases when content that contains a transparent background color is copied from another source to a rich text field in Salesforce.
