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-ga75

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


Application Security

You are able to include users' first name in the notification templates as an Instance Administrator

The instance administrator can create the email templates including the first name.​​​​​​​


Expose export endpoints to allow developers to use it for data migration operations

The batch engine API allows developers to export/import data, but it requires developers to provide a configuration with multiple parameters. With the new auto-generated endpoints, it is easier to perform export operations in the portal. The export endpoints is asynchronous, so it will provide a taskId in order to retrieve/download the records requested.

The endpoints follow this format:


Propagation process can run in the background as a Site Template Administrator

​​​​​​​Template propagations are run completely in the background.
Background tasks are executed in a sequence.

The LAR from the Site Template export is cached, so different Sites can reuse it.
LayoutSetPrototypeMergeBackgroundTaskExecutor always uses the latest Template version for the propagation.
If there is already a queued background task for the Site, we don’t create a new one.
If there is a background task in progress, we only create a new background task, if the Template was modified.
