Signagelive Cloud

8th May 2024

Layout Save Improvements:

  • Improvements to Layout Saving and Refinements

    • When saving a layout, we will only save and trigger a layout refinement if anything on the layout has changed.

      • Zone Properties Updated

      • Width, Height, X Position, Y Position

      • Default Asset

      • Text

      • Z-Index

      • Layout Background Changed - Layout backgrounds will not be re-created on each save when the background has not changed

    • New Zones will still require the Layout to be re-published

  • Store Refinements will only be created if a player specific widget is set as the default asset on a zone and the properties of the widget or the players that the layout is published to have updated properties which are used in the widget, and these will only be created for the players which have changed

  • This will mean less Player Configuration updates, faster processing and less media assets for players to download, when there isn't a change

Beamer Removal:

  • Removal of the notification bell

  • Removal of Beamer on the Signagelive Application Home Page

Network API Updates:

  • When adding a new asset to your network, using the remote asset sync method, it is now possible to override the name which is used for the asset in Signagelive, this does not affect the file name

  • It is now possible to search for players on a network by activation code, this will only search an individual network, and is only available when using the Network API directly and not via the UI

  • If activating a licence and that licence is expired, the activation will fail with a friendly message (the licence will need to be converted, if a trial or extended if a full licence)

  • If activating a licence which is trashed (the player has been trashed), the activation will fail with a friendly message (the player must be restored before it can be activated)

  • When creating a new network, all required fields will be validated and will fail if these are not provided or not the correct format

  • Players which do not support synchronisation can no longer be added to a sync group when doing this directly via the API (this has never been possible via the UI)

  • When deactivating a player, if it has any Data Sync Services content published to it, then the player will have all of its permissions revoked to display any synchronised data.
