      • 🌟 Easily Publish Sparx EA Model Information in MS SharePoint (Read More)
        • Due to the significant demand for publishing Sparx EA model information to MS SharePoint, we have introduced Prolaborate Macro for MS SharePoint (Cloud Only).  
        • As most organizations generally use SharePoint as their information portal, Prolaborate Macro for SharePoint Cloud will help large enterprise teams communicate architectural information to a wider audience. 
      • 🌟 Access Prolaborate in Different Languages (Read More)
        • By incorporating a language selection option, we can empower users from different linguistic backgrounds and make navigating Prolaborate's interface easy and understandable.
        • The feature is crucial for our global audience as we promote effective communication and ensure that users from different linguistic backgrounds can fully engage with and benefit from the application's features.
        • The Prolaborate User Interface can now be changed to other languages, such as Arabic, French, and Dutch.
        • From the next version (5.4), customers can access Prolaborate in Japanese and Spanish; we are working with our customers and partners to make this available soon. 
      • 🌟 Access Prolaborate Resources in One Place
        • Most of Prolaborate’s resources (widgets, reports, dashboards, etc.) are scattered across the application under different menus and have not benefitted many users because they are unaware of such features. Prolaborate introduces Resources Manager, which brings all the reusable resources under a common library. With a lot of focus on usability, we believe the feature will deliver a better user experience and value to users.  
        • Introducing the Resources Manager to manage the resources. As a first step, we have included Widget Library and Report Configuration under Resources Manager.  
        • Resources like Dashboards and many others will be included in the next versions. 
      • 🌟 Resources ManagerWidget Library
        • Prolaborate introduces the Widget library, a place to manage all widgets within a repository. From the widget library, you can create, Edit, Update, and Publish Reports and Charts. Users can easily publish widgets to multiple dashboards with just a few clicks.  
        • The new feature under Resources Manager replaces an existing feature, Widget Template, from the earlier versions.

        • With advanced validation techniques for Domain and SAML certificates, Prolaborate identifies and automatically rejects SAML certificates that have expired or become invalid or when the password is incorrect during configuration.

      • ‘Inline editing using a simple list view, powered by metadata to allow context-based model editing’
      • List views, designed to resemble Excel-like interfaces, have always been the choice for stakeholders when it comes to viewing and updating model information. Whether it's the task of viewing and updating applications, managing data entities, or modifying requirements and use cases, the combination of list views and inline editors has consistently delivered the most sought-after user experience.
      • The List view and inline editor is enabled in all key model viewing capabilities of Prolaborate.

      (Learn More)
      • The overview page has been enhanced to provide insightful information. The enhanced page presents all child artifacts in a list view format beneath the selected object. The page offers a more comprehensive view of the object and its related artifacts.
    • 📤 AD & ADFS Sync Setting 
      (Learn More)
      • Existing Prolaborate teams that have configured user management via AD and are planning to migrate to ADFS can benefit from this new feature. During the migration process, administrators now have the option to choose between synchronizing settings based on AD group settings or ADFS group settings. The permissions will be set accordingly based on the selected option.

        • In the current version, AD groups work based on Just In Time, while ADFS does not yet have this feature implemented.
    • 📤 Other Improvements

      • Share and other functionalities work smoothly when including two distinct widgets within a master widget.

      • Input field validations have been added to multiple areas, including the report configuration, EA reports definition, chart definition, connector definition, placeholder, and query definition pages.

    • Bug Fixes

    • AD & ADFS Merge

      🐞In version 4.4.2, we introduced the capability to merge AD and ADFS accounts. This allows current Prolaborate users with AD accounts to smoothly transition to ADFS. However, we identified an issue where users who were removed from AD user groups could still access the application. We have promptly resolved this issue in Prolaborate V5.
