What’s new

A goal of Citrix is to deliver new features and updates to Citrix Workspace customers when they are available. Workspace with intelligence releases regular updates to the Microapp platform, so check back here regularly to find out about new features and functionality.

Important!

We are continuously releasing new functionality and strive to announce these features when first available. This means newer features you see at the top of this list might be in the release process and it can take a few days to be available for a particular customer.

For details about the Service Level Agreement for cloud scale and service availability, see the Citrix Cloud Service Level Agreement. See Citrix Workspace and Citrix Cloud for more information about Citrix Workspace.

June 2020

The following announcements are part of this week’s release: MAS 1.16.5

Create integration data structures in depth: We’ve provided new examples and details on how to create table data structures beyond a relationship of one. Use the method described to create references to deeper data structures for use in your microapps. For more information, see Create integration data structures in depth.

With this release we’ve made significant improvements to stability and focused on efficiency across the Microapps services platform.

The following announcements are part of previous releases:

On premises application support (General Availability): Deliver actions and notifications from your on-premises applications right into your Workspace or other channels. This capability is now generally available. For more information, see On-premises instance.

Webhook Listeners: You can now configure webhook listeners for your integration to enable your apps to provide near real-time data to your end users. Configuring a webhook allows your apps to deliver data to other applications at a much quicker rate than synchronization from the Microapp platform side. For more information, see Webhook listeners.

Data update before action execution: You can now configure Data Update before Action Execution to fetch fresh data from a system of records. This ensures your data is fully in sync before an action execution and builds trust in your microapps. For more information, see Configure the integration.

HTTP ServiceNow integration: Our new HTTP integration template delivers stronger integration and allows for more capability to configure the cached data structure. The set up process is as easy as ever. For more information, see Integrate ServiceNow.

New ServiceNow out-of-the-box microapps: New ServiceNow microapps enable notifications and workflows for ServiceNow approvals, requests, change requests, delegates, incidents, and problems. For complete details about new ServiceNow microapps, see Use ServiceNow microapps.

HTTP Integration rate limiting: You can now optionally configure rate limiting when setting up your HTTP Integration. Use the feature when setting up your configuration based on the standard rate limits of your target integration system of record. For more information, see Create HTTP integration.

Bundle repository: Template integrations and their out-of-the-box microapps are now available through a bundle repository. When you want to add a new template integration in the Microapps service console, the add integration page is updated with the latest available template integrations for you to choose from. This interface now provides more information about the integrations. For more information, see Set up template integrations.

Product onboarding: In-product navigation has been introduced for the integration page in Microapps service. This navigation delivers basic guidance and documentation links for core microapp developer tasks, such as service configuration, microapp creation, and subscriber management.

With this feature you can optionally keep your older microapps marked as end-of-life (EOL) with the newer version set to active. For more information, see Export and import integrations and microapps.

Extension of logic rules: The page builder now allows you to create logic rules for non-input components. For example, you can take a display component into account when deciding about the action of another component (hide, show, and so on). For more information, see Customize microapps.

Improvement to Datetime parameter in service actions: Working with the Datetime parameter in service action setup now produces the matching format in the resulting request.

You can now control your notification changes, execution and expiry settings, and general output of your published notifications from a single, unified configuration workflow. For more information, see Customize microapps.

HTTP integration table merging: The option to merge parent and child tables when configuring endpoints during HTTP integration is now available. With this feature you can choose whether the selected attributes in the merged table are taken from the parent or child table, or if both attributes are preserved. For more information, see Configure the integration.

Navigate to Power BI from report view in Citrix Workspace: Microapp pages that show reports and dashboards from Power BI now include link to the target source of record for a more detailed view. For more information, see Use Power BI microapps.

Workday OOTB microapps: New versions of Workday custom reports were released: staffing activities, expenses, change job, and time off request. We’ve added and updated our spreadsheets to let you create custom reports. For more information, see Create custom reports.

SAP Concur OOTB microapps: These SAP Concur microapps are now deprecated: Submit Quick Expense, Create User, and User. Users need to delete these microapps as they will become misconfigured. For more information, see Use SAP Concur microapps.

New HTTP synchronization rules: When you define daily or weekly synchronization, synchronization occurs randomly within the timeslot you select. For example, selecting 00-04 daily full synchronize runs a full synchronize at a randomly selected time in that period. For more information, see Configure the integration.

Creating a new integration workflow includes importing: When creating a new integration for Microapps, you can now search from a variety of options to help you get started. Select from templates, create a customized HTTP integration, and now even import and export you own integration configurations and microapps.
