Weekly Release Notes - 2023-11-06

Greetings, valued users!

We are thrilled to unveil our latest update on November 6, 2023. This release is packed with enhancements and fixes to ensure a smoother and more efficient experience. Let’s dive into the details:

:lady_beetle: Bug Fixes:

  • CSV File Download Permission Issue: We’ve tackled the bug where users faced a ‘Forbidden’ error while trying to download CSV files from the pending invitations page and data sources record counts. This fix ensures smooth and error-free downloads, enhancing user convenience.

  • Standardized Export File Naming: We’ve resolved inconsistencies in the naming of participation export files. Previously, users encountered confusion with the file names like ‘4.csv’. Now, we’ve standardized the naming convention to ‘data_registrations_{study.id}_{export_ssid}’, making it more intuitive and easier to manage.

:wrench: Technical Updates:

  • ElasticSearch Integration for Webserver Logs: In a significant step to improve our backend logging system, we’ve removed the dependency on Logstash. Now, our webserver directly indexes log documents to ElasticSearch. This change leads to a more streamlined, efficient logging process, enhancing the speed and reliability of our logging system.

  • Improved Installation and Environment Variables Documentation: To make the setup and configuration process more user-friendly, we’ve updated our documentation related to installation and environment variables. These improvements aim to provide clearer guidance, making it easier for users to navigate through initial setup processes and configurations.

We thank you for your ongoing engagement and feedback. Your insights are vital in shaping our updates. As always, we look forward to your thoughts on these changes in our Community Forum or contact us via Email. Stay tuned for more enhancements and improvements in our future updates!
