Dependency Management

For development using the Liferay Platform, update Liferay Workspace to use the  latest dependencies, by adding the following line to the build.gradle file:

dependencies {
	compileOnly group: "com.liferay.portal", name: "release.portal.api"

All portal dependencies are now defined with a single declaration. When using an IDE such as Eclipse or IntelliJ all apis are immediately available in autocomplete for immediate use.  

By setting a product info key property it will be possible to update all dependencies to a new version by updating the liferay.workspace.product property in the liferay workspace projects file:

liferay.workspace.product = portal-7.4-ga30

When using an IDE such as Eclipse or IntelliJ all apis are immediately available in autocomplete for immediate use.



Shipment External Reference Code

External Reference Code has now been added to Shipments and can be modified from the Shipments Admin page


Object Relationship - many-to-many


Through this functionality will be possible for the users to relate system objects with custom objects using a many-to-many relationship.

You can relate multiple entities from the current Object to multiple entities in another Object. When selected, a new database table is created for both sides of the relationship.


Create Actions Using Conditions


Once conditions are enabled, just the entries that match with the condition will start the action execution. To create this condition will be possible to use expressions and all fields from the object.

The conditions will be able to work for any entry, triggered by an add, update or delete.

Experience Building

Allow admins to choose the redirection code for friendlyURLs

Now it is possible to choose which redirection type will Liferay use to redirect users when accessing old friendlyURLs for pages or display page templates.

When is set to 0 we were using the 302 code for redirecting the users. Now it is possible to configure it to 301, for example if your site has just content in the default language.



All documentation for Liferay Portal and Liferay Commerce can now be found on our documentation site:  For more information on upgrading to Liferay Portal 7.4 GA30 see refer to the Upgrade Overview.

Fixes and Known Issues


Congratulations on another solid release for 7.4.

It feels like commerce continues to get the focus of feature enhancements, however collaboration is in desperate need of attention. We continue to see collaboration and social portal features coming out of the product.

The lack of focus on collaboration weakens our ability to defend continuing with the platform.
