What’s new in our products?

General additions and enhancements

Along with some fixes and improvements that smooth out the user experience, there are several new important features that impact on how you use the EZ Suite tools.

What's new in the FlexyView

NEW - Easily navigate the grid

Use the ‘Columns Map’ button to find, show or hide grid properties you need to make the grid view just the way you want it. Type ahead to find a property column and double-click it and you’ll be taken there in an instant. Or select a whole of properties and click on the “Show” button to add them to the grid. Wherever there’s a grid, you’ll find yourself using the ‘Columns Map’ to explore the fields available to you because it’s so easy!

NEW - Chart your grid data in more ways

You now have options to visually represent the data you see to include in your reports. Click on the “Create a chart” button and choose from pies, bars, columns, lines, pyramids and radars to best show your data distribution. Copy it or save it for your reports.

NEW - Format your pivot table data and chart it

We’ve given you the ability to pre-process your grid data using JavaScript before you create more meaningful pivot tables. You can now format X and Y labels when creating a pivot table. From there you can also create a pivot chart for a visual presentation of your pivot data. Create pivot tables and charts from any grid data, including hierarchical view data.

NEW - Identify duplicate values in a selected column

If you’re looking for duplicate values within a field across your grid entries, you can now find them quickly using the ‘Duplicates’ button. This will create new columns to indicate the sets of duplicates and their numbers for the values of the property column you selected. You can remove them once you have completed your analysis.

NEW - Get some fancy stats on your field values

You now have access sophisticated statistical functions that you can use for selected fields or column values. Options include ‘Three-sigma’, ‘Percentiles’, ‘Top/bottom 5%’, ‘% of range groups’, ‘% of range values’, ‘Count Three-sigma’, ‘Count percentile values’, ‘Count top/bottom distribution’, ‘Count range groups’ and ‘% of count range values’. The results are displayed in a new column next to the one you selected. You’ll also have the option ‘Remove all Statistics’ to clean up the grid of these columns.

NEW - Display totals for each categorized grouping

If you’re a “serial grouper” and if you work mainly with quantifiable columns values, you’re going to love adding count information to the grouped column header. Click on the button ‘Display the totals…’ and choose the type of total to be displayed including ‘Sum’, ‘Average’, ‘Minimum’, ‘Maximum’, ‘Delta’, ‘Count: All’ and ‘Count: Exclude Empty Cells’. Available options for setting a Group Total vary depending on the type and status of the column.

NEW - Expand groupings and categorizations to specific levels

There’s now a smarter way to work with subgroupings. You can expand all top-level categories in the grid by a chosen number of levels using the right-click menu grid option ‘Expand up to…’ or you can expand a selected category by 1 or 2 levels only from the ‘Expand/Collapse’ submenu.

NEW - Separate dates and times into components

What if your analysis is based on the month AND hour of your entries? You no longer need to spend time changing the cell format of your date/time column – click on one of the ‘Explode’ buttons to separate the values of a date/time column into their date or time components: hours, minutes, seconds and year, month, day. A new column will be added for each one.

NEW - Convert a text value to a number or a date

If you’re tasked on performing a quantitative analysis but your data is in a text format, click an ‘Convert text values to…’ option to convert the column values to a decimal number format or to a date format. The resulting values will be shown in a new column which can then be used in your analysis.

NEW - Invert your entry selection

You can now reverse your row selection in the grid by clicking ‘Invert Selection’ submenu item of ‘Select All’. Similarly, the ‘Invert Results’ checkbox option has been added in ‘Select using Regular expression’ to invert the results of the regular expression you use.

NEW - Choose to hide categorization/grouping counts

If you want to export the categorizations you made in the grid as a list of values without the count information, you can now clean up the final look by hiding the group counts that appear next to groupings’ value. Simply turn off ‘Show Counter’, a submenu item of ‘Toggle the displaying of categories…’.

NEW - Select grid rows using a CSV or Excel file

Need to work with grid entries that match a specific list of values that is beyond the capability of selecting with a regular expression? Click on ‘Select using values in a column from a CSV or an Excel file’ to match values within a selected column in the grid. You also have this feature available in scanEZ to make tree selections.

NEW - Manage fields or columns with multi-values

Instead of limiting yourself to working with fields that have multiple values in the ‘Field Value’ section below the grid, you can now work with them directly in the grid. Explode cells with multiple values for further analysis, or group by that column to automatically explode them. You can also sort on the element count rather than the value to keep entries with the largest multi-value at the top.

NEW - Get a document view by hierarchy (scanEZ only)

You now can see selected documents and their response documents in one pane by clicking on the ‘Hierarchy’ button. You’ll have a clearer understanding of the hierarchical relationship between parent and child documents for several documents at once. You can even switch between a Flat or Hierarchical view. This is available in scanEZ only.

NEW - Get the inverse of your filter by regex results

When using ‘Filter by Regular Expression’ use the newly added ‘Invert Results’ checkbox option to filter your data by the inverse of the regex result. This is just like the option used in ‘Select using Regular expression’.

NEW - Create permanent or temporary comments in the grid

Using the JavaScript function of grid comments is a faster way to transform grid data because it’s done in the grid directly without having to open documents. You now have the option to make your comments permanent or temporary. You can even share permanent comments with your team since they are stored in a Notes Database. Computed comments/annotations are available in aclEZ, agentEZ, databaseEZ, and replicationEZ and in the special Values grid in scanEZ only.

NEW - Display date/time values in broader terms

What if you want a more comprehensive grid view of your databases’ creation dates? We’ve added a date/time formatting option to display dates as a broader range. For example, date/time values can be shown as “In the last hour”, “1 month ago”, “1 year ago”. You’ll see this option in the formatting parameters applied at the cell or grouping level.

Choose from more options click-searching a grid

We’ve added more options in the quick-search dialog. A quick search in the grid consists of clicking anywhere on the grid and typing. You now have more ways to search, whether it’s the whole grid or within a specific column.

What's new in automation

  • Variable list management:

Test if list exists
Get list size
Set list from grid selection
Set list from grid Columns (unique values)
Filter values in grid from list
Get value from list
Filter from List

  • User input fields and formats
  • Progress and Message Box for clarifying run status
  • CalcVar using JavaScript
  • Parameters to configure the grid (use of saved grid config no longer needed)
  • On Error management when automation errors occur
  • Send mail capability
  • Else function
  • Various newly added grid actions including comparator, pivot table & chart, etc.
  • Copy/move document to databases (scanEZ)

What's new in all EZ Suite products

NEW – Launch any EZ tool from a URL

Just like for scanEZ, you can now execute an automation script by launching any EZ Suite tool directly from a URL. Since we’ve added even more automation capabilities, you can take advantage of this to speed up your recurrent tasks.

NEW – Use new options in Formula Editor

We’ve added ‘@ModifiedInThisFile’ and ‘@AddedToThisFile’ list options in the Formula Editor.

FIX – Keep your session ID launching one tool from another

If you switch between various IDs when working with your EZ Suite tools, you’ll be glad to know we fixed an issue so that you keep your session ID when launching a different EZ Suite tool from another tool. For example, if you launch databaseEZ from scanEZ, your databaseEZ session will use the current scanEZ session ID.

FIX – Manage ‘Alternate Names’ in ACLs

You can now conduct ‘Check NAB Presence’ operations in aclEZ taking into consideration ‘Alternate Names’. You’ll also be able to manage ‘Alternate Names’ in the Address Book dialog.

FIX – Create new Manager ACL entries with correct defaults

We fixed it so that when you create a new Manager entry in the Access Control List (ACL) of scanEZ or aclEZ, ‘Delete documents’ is set by default just like in Notes.

FIX – Register, update tools, get notifications from tools (SSL-compliance)

Product-to-Ytria communication protocols are now SSL-compliant. All communications involving license management, updates and notifications from the products to Ytria meet SSL requirements. For example, proxies that previously blocked updates because of SSL requirements are now no longer an issue.

Product specific additions and improvements

Check out what we’ve added and fixed in your favourite individual EZ Suite tool.

What's new in scanEZ

NEW - Retrieve contents of a view faster

The newly added ‘Show Full View or Folder Content…’ feature lets you get your view content faster than with the Diff/Values path because it’s based on the view index. And you get to see the full content of multiple views and folders in a Hierarchical view. You’ll find this feature in the submenu of ‘Search’ in the toolbar.

NEW - See a true hierarchical view of all your documents

When working with many documents and their responses in scanEZ, you can now see a global picture of their hierarchical relationships. Once the Hierarchy grid is loaded, you can use various grid tools to analyze your data. You can also switch between a flat and hierarchical view depending on your needs. Simply click on the ‘Hierarchy’ button to show the complete hierarchy of all selected documents (beside the Diff and Values buttons).

NEW - Make a checkbox selection from a CSV or Excel file

This new option ‘Select using a CSV or Excel file…’ from the ‘Checkbox Selection’ and in the toolbar lets you select entries in the tree view matching values stored in a CSV or Excel file. This comes in handy when regex rules are just not enough. If your file has multiple columns, you can choose which column to use for your selection.

NEW - Work with multi-value cells in the Diff/Values grids

Part of the grid enhancements includes working with multiple values directly in the grid. Documents in the Diff and Values grids that have multi-value attributes can now be manipulated for further analysis. Try grouping by that attribute column and you’ll see all the multi-values automatically explode within it, or sort them on the element count rather than the value to keep entries with the largest multi-value at the top

NEW - Evaluate formulas on multiple documents

The Diff and Values grids are great for analyzing multiple documents, but now can also ‘Test Formula’ for multiple documents. You no longer must test it out one document at a time from the tree view. Access this feature from the right-click menu, test a formula, and you’ll see the results for the documents you selected in the ‘Resulting Value’ space.

NEW - Execute 'Document Analyzer' on selected documents

You can now run ‘Document Analyzer’ on selected documents of a tree node (from Documents submenu or the right-click menu) or on a checkbox selection (from CheckBox Selection menu) to find relevant response documents whose parents are ‘phantoms’ instead of processing every document in the database.

NEW - Confirm and preview Mass Data Modifications

Mass Data Modifications applied on a category of documents or a My Selection virtual folder in focus in the Selection Tree were applied as soon as you pressed the ‘Apply’ button. Now you will see a preview of your changes and a confirmation dialog stating how many documents will be modified before your changes do get applied.

NEW – Get the inverse of your checkbox selection regex results

When using ‘Select using Regular Expression’ from the Checkbox Selection menu, the newly added ‘Invert Results’ checkbox option lets you filter your data by the inverse of the regex result. This is just like the option used in ‘Filter by Regular Expression’.

NEW – Manage multi-value field of a single document

Just like in the Diff and Values grids that work with several documents, the grid for a single document has been enhanced to handle fields with multiple values. Once ‘exploded’ multi-values can sorted, filtered or analyzed on an individual basis. Note that the ‘Field Value’ section will still show all the components of the multi-value field when one component is selected in the grid.

NEW – Search and replace Rich Text fields for multiple documents

Searching documents based on the content of a Rich Text field is no longer cumbersome. You’re now able to find a text string AND replace it within Rich Text fields for several documents.

NEW – Hard delete conflict documents

Previously using the Conflict Solver resulted in soft deleting the conflict documents which may have turned into a source of various issues. Solving conflicts in scanEZ now results in a hard delete.

NEW – View responses counts in the Conflict Solver and in the Comparator

Whether you’re comparing documents in the Comparator or seeing them side by side in the Conflict Solver, you now have the option to display document response counts in the grid – click on the ‘Response Count’ button at the bottom.

FIX – Use a default column title when adding a column

Previously, when adding a column in Diff/Values grids, the column title was empty which prompted errors if one quickly clicked through to simply add a column. The column title is now populated by the value ‘Column’ to speed things along.

NEW – Add several members to a given group (ACL) at once

Managing ACL group memberships is now even easier since you can select and add multiple users to an ACL group at once. This feature is also present in aclEZ.

FIX – Restore Soft Deletions faster

See Soft Deleted documents restored significantly faster. We’ve improved the process of handle large scales of restoration.

FIX – Search by Notes Class based on ‘Documents [Data]’ & Soft Deletions

Limited by how Notes works, we’ve added a clarification in the ‘Extensive Search by Notes Class’ dialog in scanEZ to indicate that if you select ‘Documents [Data]’, the search will also include Soft Deletions.

FIX – See list type fields as tree titles

Previously there was an issue if you chose to display tree titles based on list type fields. List types are now properly handled.

FIX – Copy/move folder with extensive hierarchy

We fixed an issue causing a crash when copying or moving a folder with a hierarchy structure bigger than 64 bytes.

FIX – Retain Formula History for multiple instances of scanEZ

Formula History is now handled correctly when using multiple instances of scanEZ. Previously, there were cases where the last formulas used were not always retained in the Formula History when having several active scanEZ sessions.

What's new in consoleEZ

NEW - See the consoleEZ dashboard upon launch, or not

Some of you let us know that the dashboard is not the first thing you want to see when running consoleEZ. We heard you and made the dashboard display upon launch a preference.

FIX – Filter your server tasks without issues

We’ve optimized the Server Task grid’s loading process to avoid pc memory usage issues. Previously, hidden server tasks were taking up too much machine memory even when using filters in the Server Tasks grid because the grid was constantly refreshing itself every 3 seconds.

FIX – Manage the dashboard size after minimizing

When you minimize the dashboard to get it out of the way and then click on the ‘Dashboard’ button to get it back, it will now display with a manageable size. Previously, the dashboard would reappear as aSet tiny window.

What's new in agentEZ

FIX – Set an agent to run within the hour or later

Previously, you were only able to set agents to run after an hour. Scheduling anything before that was not possible until now – we fixed the technical issues surrounding this.

FIX – Edit many agents, save once

If you’re updating several agents at once, you’ll now be prompted only once to save your changes. Previously, the ‘Save modification’ dialog box would pop-up for every agent.

What's new in aclEZ

NEW - Add several members to a given group (ACL) at once

Managing ACL group memberships is now even easier since you can select and add multiple users to an ACL group at once. This feature is also present in scanEZ.

NEW – Add group members in the Group Explorer grid

When managing ACL group members in Group Explorer, you can now add several members at once in the grid layout. Previously, adding multiple members was only possible in the tree layout.

FIX – Check member presence of Mail-in Database entries

Mail-in Database entries are now properly handled when running a ‘Check Presence’. Previously there were issues with this type of entry.

FIX – Manage ‘Alternate Names’ in ACLs

You can now conduct ‘Check NAB Presence’ operations in aclEZ taking into consideration ‘Alternate Names’. You’ll also be able to manage ‘Alternate Names’ in the Address Book dialog.

FIX – Add new member to an empty group

Previously, adding a member to a group without members resulted in adding an extra empty entry. This has been fixed.

FIX – Remove members with canonical names in Group Explorer

We fixed an issue with removing ACL group member entries that had canonical names in the Group Explorer grid.

What's new in replicationEZ

NEW - Compare unread document counts between replicas

When doing a comparison between mail database replicas to diagnose replication issues, if you want to make sure that your replicas have the same number of unread documents, you can now see the unread document count information in the grid. Simply click on ‘Load Unread Counter’ option in the right-click menu to fetch display the numbers in the ‘Unread Counter’ panel at the bottom.

NEW - Copy an Unread Table to other replicas

It’s easy to make sure that unread mail documents are consistent across replicas. After you’ve compared unread document counts for your replicas, you can solve any discrepancies by copying an Unread Table from one replica to all the others before tackling the repair of your replication issues.

NEW - Create replicas with the same ACL core design settings

When you create a replica in replicationEZ, you can now include the same ACL core design settings for your replica stub. This will allow you to work on it right away. This option is checked by default.

NEW – Manage ‘Out Of Service’ and ‘Marked for Deletion’ cluster-related properties

We’ve added replication properties ‘Out Of Service’ and ‘Marked for Deletion’ in the ‘Selected Databases’ panel. Select databases and click on ‘Edit Database Replication Properties’ from the right-click menu to edit these cluster-related properties. These are also available in databaseEZ.

NEW – Use ‘Replicate’ console command options (Domino 10)

With their introduction in Domino 10, you now have 2 parameters under ‘Flags to use’ for the ‘Replicate’ console command: ‘-F’ to clean replication without clearing replication history and ‘-L’ to log changes only but don’t do them.

NEW – Use the ‘Repair’ console command (Domino 10)

We’ve added ‘Repair’ to the list of console commands in replicationEZ. This Domino 10 command comes with 3 parameters under ‘Flags to use’. They include ‘file’ which issues a request to the repair service to repair a missing database, ‘disable’ which excludes a database from missing files scans, for example, a database that is being rest, and ‘enable’ which includes a database in missing file scans again.

NEW – Execute automation files with many tool instances or just one

Previously you were only able to run automation files based on a single instance of a tool (ex. scanEZ), whereas now you have the choice of using several instances (in parallel) just like in databaseEZ. You will be prompted to choose after selecting the automation script file that you wish to run.

NEW – Select replica reference to see ‘Database full path column’ in the Conflict Counter

When looking at the flattened information about the replicas’ databases in the Conflict Counter of replicationEZ, you can now choose the server for which you want to see the ‘Database full path column’ of the selected databases specific to that replica.

FIX – Cancel the clearing of the Replication History

You can now change your mind having started to ‘Clear Replication History’ process. Simply click on the ‘Cancel’ button to stop the history purge.

What's new in databaseEZ

NEW - Enable Deletion Logging and set Deletion Logging properties (Domino 10)

The management of deletion logging was introduced in Domino 10 and featured the enabling deletion logging and the defining of fields (Deletion Log Items) used to manage the deleted databases. You’ll see these in the databaseEZ grid as ‘Deletion Log Status’ and ‘Deletion Log Items’ columns. Both attributes can be edited in by clicking on ‘Edit Deletion Logging Properties’. Here is a handy article that explains deletion logging by Daniel Nashed , and you can find instructions on how to obtain his Domino 10 Deletion Log Annotation and Backup Application here. [http://blog.nashcom.de/nashcomblog.nsf/dx/nshdellog-domino-deletion-log-annoatation-and-backup.htm?opendocument&comments].

NEW - Update ''Full Text Settings' for many databases

Why limit yourself to changing Full Text Settings one at a time natively in Notes? You can now mass modify these settings for multiple database at once. Simply click on ‘Edit Full Text Settings’.

NEW – Manage ‘Out Of Service’ and ‘Marked for Deletion’ cluster-related properties

We’ve added replication properties ‘Out Of Service’ and ‘Marked for Deletion’ in the ‘Selected Databases’ panel. Select databases and click on ‘Edit Database Replication Properties’ from the right-click menu to edit these cluster-related properties. These are also available in replicationEZ.

NEW – Use ‘LargeSummary’ option for the ‘compact’ console command (Domino 10)

We’ve added an option in databaseEZ for the ‘compact’ console command that was introduced in Domino 10. You can now choose the ‘LargeSummary’ option (Replication-style: Restart server on renaming failure) from among the ‘Flags to Use’ in the Command Line Details section.

FIX – Set ‘User Activity flag’ faster

If you’re working with Database User Activity, you’ll notice that the processing time for setting the ‘User Activity flag’ to ‘ON’ on multiple selections has significantly improved from the previous version.

What's new in actionBarEZ

NEW – Show new mobile action properties related to Domino 10

We’ve added options for displaying new properties related to Domino 10: ‘Include actions in mobile actions button’, ‘Include action in mobile swipe left’, ‘Include action in mobile swipe right’.

NEW – Hide designs in the grid AND in the selection tree

Now when you’re done cleaning up the actions grid by hiding designs, when you revert back to the tree view, you will be asked to choose if you want to unselect the designs in the selection tree that you hid in the grid. You’ll also notice that we fixed the lost grid focus issue that was present when hiding designs.

What's new in viewEZ

NEW – Hide designs in the view & column grids AND in the selection tree

Just like in actionBarEZ, after hiding designs in any of the grids, when you revert back to the tree view, you will be asked to choose if you want to unselect the newly hidden designs in the selection tree. You’ll notice that we also fixed the lost grid focus issue that was present when hiding designs.

FIX – Purge view indexes of hidden design views

We’ve improved the management of view indexes by enabling the discarding of indexes for hidden design views. Previously, the button ‘Purge index for selected views’ was disabled.


EZ Suite 20 - Registration and licensing

EZ Suite 20 Registration & Licensing

EZ Suite version 20 introduces a new registration and licensing system.

Therefore, if you have already registered previous versions (version 16 or earlier), you will still need to register a new account for this new version.

Registration FAQs for version 16 and older software products can be found here.

Registration is a simple 2-step process – you will be asked to create an account with a valid email, and then enter a license code to unlock your product.

                  We offer 2 different methods for the registration and licensing, either ‘online’ or ‘offline’

                           Online: (the software will connect directly to our servers using your internet connection), method used in most common cases.

                           Offline:  either with internet browser or by email

Registration - Getting started

When you launch any product for the first time, you will see this dialog:

Clicking the Next button will open the account registration dialog.
This is for most common cases, and assumes you have a regular working internet connection.

However if you have restricted or poor internet connectivity, the dialog on the left also offers options to deal with this.
You can review your proxy settings, connect with browser, or register by email.

A note about proxy settings –

If testing your internet connection fails, you can try reviewing your proxy settings (if any) with the Proxy Settings button. With EZ Suite version 20 there are 3 servers that must be given access in your proxy settings: ytria.com, ytria.net, nalpeiron.com (Nalpeiron is our licensing platform).

Whichever option you choose will proceed to the registration dialog [→ Registering your account].

Registering your account

Note: At this time, you also have the option to enter your license code to unlock the full functionality of the product. However, you will also have the option to do so from within the product Help menu [→ Entering your license code] at a later time.

Option 1 – If this is your first time registering, you can do so by filling in this dialog

Note: If you have already registered a version 16 or earlier, this dialog will be auto filled with your previous account info. Please review this information and make any updates if needed.

Option 2 – If you have already registered a version 20 account

If you already have a valid account as well as your AVN (account validation number), simply click the I’m a registered user tab at the top of the registration dialog.

Enter the email for your registered account and your AVN (account validation number). There is also an option to recover your AVN if you do not have it at hand.

If you are registering via the regular online method, then… Congratulations! This completes the standard account registration process.

When you first complete registration of your new account, you will receive and email confirmation with your new Account Validation Number (AVN). It is recommended that you keep a copy of this AVN for your records.

However if you have  chosen one the offline options to complete product registration, please see below:
→ Go to connect with browser 
→ Go to register by email

How to complete registration in cases of restricted or poor internet connection

If your internet access is limited or restricted in some way, you can use one of two options to complete registration:

    – Connect with browser

    – Register by email

Note that the offline methods provide an alternative for machines that may have restricted internet access. However, these methods of validation will be valid for 30 days. Therefore, you will need to repeat this process every 30 days to re-validate. The advantage is that the product will not attempt to connect online and re-validate every time you launch it.

Option 1- Connect with browser

If you choose the Connect with browser option and, once you have completed the registration form (or signed in to your existing account), you will notice two items automatically open on your desktop:

– A windows explorer window with your challenge certificate

– A browser page to drag & drop your challenge certificate

Note: If your browser is on a machine that is separate from the one on which your product has been installed, then copy the challenge/ response certificate files as well as the URL, and complete this process from your alternate computer. For the final step, the response certificate will have to be copied back to the computer on which the product has been installed.

Note: Please ensure that the email you provide in this page is a valid address so you can receive your response certificate.

Drag this challenge certificate [YtriaChallengeCertificate.ytr_reg] into the browser dialog. Click Submit.

A confirmation page will ask you to check your inbox for email containing the corresponding response certificate.

Entering your response certificate is the last step in the process.

→ Proceed to response certificate 

Option 2- Register by email

If you choose Register by email option, you just have to enter your email address.

A dialog will confirm that your request has been sent to Ytria.

Check your inbox and locate the email containing your response certificate.

Entering your response certificate is the last step in the process.

→ Proceed to response certificate 

Entering your Response Certificate– The Final Step

Entering your response certificate is the final step to complete your product registration.

Note: There can only be one “active” certificate request at a time. [→Troubleshooting]

There are three ways to do this:

  1. By default the drag & drop dialog will have been opened for you automatically as the next step in your offline registration process.
  2. Or, if you closed the product and re-launched it, and an offline registration request has already been sent, the opening dialog will offer you an additional fourth option to enter your response certificate:

3. Alternately you can access the same dialog from the product Help menu here:

To complete the final step, simply drag & drop your response certificate into this dialog:

Congratulations, your product is now registered!

Entering your license code

If you have already registered your account, and simply want to unlock the full functionality of your product, you may do so within the product from the Help menu:

Once you click Apply, you will get the following dialog:

Clicking Next will process your request online. Congratulations! This completes the standard license activation process.

However if you have restricted or poor internet connectivity, you can try one of the offline options to complete license activation:
→ Go to connect with browser 
→ Go to register by email

Troubleshooting

Canceling a registration process and starting over

If you initiate the registration process, during which a response certificate is being emailed to your inbox, and you decide to interrupt this process and start over, you will have the option to do so.
However each response certificate is specific to the process request that initiated it. Therefore starting over will cancel any previous request.

Therefore, when starting over, use care not to mix up any previous (outdated) response certificates with your current request.

Switch to offline validation

When any product is launched, it will run a quick validation check to the registration server.

However, for users who need to re-launch products very frequently, it can be preferable to use the offline option. The advantage is that the product will not need to re-validate for 30 days.

If you have already registered online and would like to switch to the offline option, you can do so from the Help menu in any product: ‘Enable Offline Usage

Key Depository

Important note: Even if you have used the Key Depository in earlier versions (v16 or before) you still need to redo the 3-step process as shown in the Key Depository database. This article provides a quick explanation of how this works.

The Key Depository Database lets an administrator store license keys for Ytria software products on a server.
It provides an alternative means of registering your software and is primarily useful to organizations who need to distribute and manage a large number of licenses.

The Key Depository – how it works 

The Key Depository uses the server ID code that you provide to create a kind of ‘encapsulated certificate’ of the license codes available within the invoice you select. This certificate is then used to implement these license codes inside of the Key Depository database, so they can be deployed securely to your users.

In short, it‘s a kind of snapshot of the license codes taken at that time.

For this reason, even if you have used the Key Depository in earlier versions (v16 or before) you still need to redo the 3-step process as shown in the Key Depository database (pictured):

Note that the Key Depository database is only a ‘distributor’ of license codes. It uses the exact same license codes as the ones you may have used previously. It does not generate new license codes.

In other words, rather than entering the license manually, you have it provided automatically by the Key Depository database instead.

A word about servers 

All the information in the Key Depository database is encrypted by and for the server it resides on.
This means that the Key Depository databases cannot be moved between servers.
So when installing on any new server, the best option is to create a new Key Depository database on this new server and then re-do the process from this server.

Note that the notes.ini entry will need to be changed so it points to the correct new database.

For additional information about the Key Depository see this page: Getting started registration key depository database 

License keys

There are some important differences in the new registration system.

Note: AS OF VERSIOIN 20 ONLY ONE LICENSE CAN BE ACTIVATED AT A GIVEN TIME.
This is different from previous versions v16 which employed a one-key-per-product method.

Using a license key for your suite (EZAdmin, EZDev, EzSuite Complete)
If you are using a license key for your suite this should be fine. You simply enter your license and it is recognised for the entire suite.

Using license keys for products individually – merged licenses
However please pay attention if you are installing more than one product and entering an individual license key for each. In this case we would need to know if you will be the only person using that license.
Then we will ‘merge’ those into a single license, which will include/ recognize all the products that are being installed together.

One way to avoid confusion is to inform us by email which license you are authorized to use. Then we can confirm you have the correct license for the combination of products you are installing.


EZ Suite v20 - pre release

Test drive the pre-release version

EZ Suite 20!

EZ Suite 20 is here! 

Just wait until you see what we have for you – a revamped grid, heaps of automation and…

So. Many. Features.

FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS

For all the tools, you’ll see:
• A new grid infrastructure with cool ways to organize and analyze your data.
• New automation capabilities to create even more automated tasks
• The ability to keep your current session ID when launching a different EZ Suite tool from another tool (example: launching databaseEZ from scanEZ).
• SSL-compliance for licensing, update and notification communications from the products to Ytria.

In scanEZ, you’ll be able to:
• Search the full content of multiple views and folders in a Hierarchical view, like in Diff-Values.
• Make tree and grid selections from a CSV or Excel file.
• Test formulas in the Diff/Value grid to evaluate a formula on multiple documents.
• Get a preview and a confirmation dialog when editing in Diff/Values to avoid mistakes.
• Use ‘Document Analyzer’ on a selected tree node or on a checkbox selection.
• Use search and replace on Rich Text fields in Diff/Values grids.
• Restore Soft Deletions way faster.

If you use the other EZ Suite tools, you’ll be able to:
• Choose to see the consoleEZ dashboard upon launching.
• Add multiple members to a group at one time in aclEZ, including in the Group Explorer grid.
• Take into account Alternate Names during the ‘Check Presence’ operation in aclEZ.
• Compare unread document counts between replicas in replicationEZ, and copy an Unread Table from one replica to other replicas.
• Copy ACL core design settings by default when creating a new replica with replicationEZ.
• Edit cluster-related properties ‘Out Of Service’ and ‘Marked for Deletion’ in replicationEZ and in databaseEZ.
• Edit ‘Deletion status’ and ‘Deletion Log Items’ properties (introduced in Domino 10) in databaseEZ.

A new major release of Ytria’s EZ Suite looms on the horizon and we’re offering you, as one of our esteemed users, an exclusive opportunity to test drive the new pre-release version before we take this news public. All we ask in return is that you give us your feedback, both positive and negative. Let us know your first impressions at support@ytria.com.

Installing the EZ Suite 20 pre-release version in parallel to your current version:
To ensure proper installation of your Ytria software, unzip (extract) the file YtriaEZSuite20RC.nsf to your local Notes\Data directory, open the database in your Notes client, click the “Install” button, and follow the instructions to complete your installation.

If you are already using Ytria tools, this installation file will perform a parallel installation of the new pre-release version, providing you with a separate toolbar (with icons indicating your pre-release version software) and EZ Suite 20 pre-release database.

Parallel installation will still allow you to benefit from Ytria Update and product integration. However, the following features are not available at this time:
• scanEZ Extension database
• scanEZ web launch extension
• signEZ server Batch database
• Ytria Designer widget

EZ Suite v16.5.5 - Minor update

Version 16.5.5 is available now!

This latest EZ Suite release includes some small improvements and a host of minor fixes. Keep things running smoothly with this new update. Here’s a summary of what has changed.

And stay tuned for a major announcement as we’re putting the final touches on version 20!

EZ Suite v16.5.5 – minor update

EZ Suite - All Products

  • Fixed a bug that caused the command line Notes.ini to be ignored in some products.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented use of Notes.ini in command line even if automation (-x) is specified.
  • Improved the process used for ACL presence check (to accommodate the above fixes in aclEZ and scanEZ)
  • Fixed a bug that was causing a conflict between EZ Suite product panels and Windows taskbar.
  • Fixed a bug that caused a copied grid to lose its correct ordering.
  • Fixed – The ‘Restore all hidden entries’ icon was not being greyed out when no hidden entries existed.
  • Fixed a bug in all grids that, when exporting to Excel, prevented totals from being exported from the values grid.


databaseEZ

  • Fixed a bug that sometimes displayed dates incorrectly.
  • Fixed a bug that caused excessive database reloads when User Activity flag is set to ‘On’.
  • Fixed a bug when loading a large number of databases that could cause a crash due to infinite recursion.


aclEZ

  • Fixed a bug when checking alternate names extended NAB vs. check presence. This could occur when using products in languages with special characters not recognized by the English alphabet (Japanese, Chinese, etc…)


agentEZ

  • Fixed – The ‘Edited’ status icon would not appear beside a scheduled agent even after restoring the saved agent properties.
  • Fixed a bug that caused partial load to take a very long time to process, during which time no user action could be taken.


consoleEZ

  • Fixed – The Server Tasks were not properly removing hidden rows when refreshed, causing the grid to be overburdened.


scanEZ

  • Fixed crash when using ‘Export All Attachments…’ with ‘Copy Document links’.
  • Fixed crash when using ‘Export All Attachments…’ with ‘Copy/Move Documents to Multiple Databases’.
  • Fixed a bug when using Restore of Soft Deletions from within the Deletions Stub Explorer (as opposed to from the selection tree) that caused extremely long process times.
  • Fixed a bug when checking alternate names for extended NAB vs check presence. This could occur when using products in languages with special characters not recognized by the English alphabet (Japanese, Chinese, etc…)
  • Fixed – The Summary Data Size column was not properly populated in the Document Analyzer when using the ‘Sum of Summarized Item Data’.


replicationEZ

  • Improved the ‘Create new replica’ process. Now includes additional default design elements.
  • Fixed – When clearing the replication history, clicking on Cancel failed to stop the process.


Automation

  • Fixed the ModifyItem tag which was preventing the proper handling of user input dialogs.
  • Improved – added the option to execute an automation file on another EZ Suite product using one instance for each database.
