Experience Building

Configuration to control which users can see the Control Menu

​​​​Traditionally, it has been complex and tedious to configure the necessary permissions that would make the Control Menu not visible for logged-in users. As soon as one permission was not configured properly, the Control Menu would be visible for these users.

This was previously managed by a specific logic inside the Theme, but now, we have made it easier to control and configure with a new setting.

Now, customers can easily control visibility of the Control Menu per role, within Site Settings >> Site Configuration >> Menu Access.

Refactored UX of Page Configuration

We have refactored the Page Configuration and Page Design Options to make them homogeneous and consistent.

Now, you can access Page Design Options as a section of the Page Configuration (before, they were two separate views).

In addition to that, we have made the UX homogeneous and more consistent with new Clay component styles. We have also regrouped items according to what users intend to do, making it more logical and user friendly to configure.

New filters capabilities in Documents & Media

Now Content Editors can find much easier the documents they are looking for thanks to the new filters added to Documents & Media.

3 new filters have been added: categories, tags and extensions.


Improve performance of Publications

We have refactored Ongoing, Scheduled and History tabs to use Dataset Display, and added a configuration to speed up review changes screen.


Collections with Search Blueprints (DXP Only)

​​​​​​​Automatically register a collection provider for each search blueprint. By displaying the blueprint's results in a collection display fragment, you can leverage search to return your assets dynamically, and reap the benefits of the fragments toolbox to lay out the page.


Search Headless API

Search the company index for matching content through a single endpoint and build custom search experiences. Supports facets with translated display terms and also custom searching, filtering, aggregation and sorting through Search Blueprints.
