Nuxeo Edge Cache: Accelerate Transfer Time to Remote Sites

With Nuxeo Edge Cache, you'll significantly improve your transfer time! A great addition to cloud deployments or for customers with multiple remote sites, Nuxeo Edge Cache removes the need to download the same file again and again at a given site when several users want to access it. Nuxeo Edge Cache works transparently with any client (Web Browser, Nuxeo Drive, or Nuxeo API Clients), without the user noticing, but at the same time guarantees a very high level of security. The server encrypts the files with a unique key, which isn't shared with the proxy. When a client requests a file from the server it gets redirected to its local proxy (if any), and is given the unique decryption key to access the file. No configuration is required on the client side (auto-installable with auto-update).

Enhanced Core Content Repository

New Advanced Data Modeling

Already providing one of the most advanced, flexible content models available in the market today, the Nuxeo Content Repository now provides new property types for creating and managing more complex content objects and data models.

In-Place Content Support

The Nuxeo Platform can import documents into the Nuxeo core repository without requiring them to be physically moved into the blob store, allowing those documents to simply remain in place. This unique Nuxeo capability makes it possible to integrate cloud-based content, collaboration and authoring tools using Nuxeo Live Connect, as well as enabling support for hierarchical storage management (HSM) policies, which may specify storage of select content outside of the Nuxeo blob store, such as encrypted file storage, use of the GridFS plugin, etc.

Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM)

The Nuxeo Platform lets developers define hybrid storage policies, specifying what content should be stored via Amazon S3, locally, or other on-premises storage.

New Extended ACLs and Centralized Permissions Management

User and group permissioning is now faster and easier for admins and managers alike with a new user-friendly UI, and many new permissioning options, including:

  • New temporary user access rights, valid only for a desired date range
  • Optional email notification to user(s) when a new permission is set
  • Easily purge all ACLs for a given user
  • New Permissions tab in Admin Center enables search for past and current permissions – a critical resource for ensuring successful regulatory compliance and security audits
  • New programmable security filters allow for precise controls over user or group actions beyond simple access permissioning. For example, a user may be allowed access to an image but can only download a low-res copy to ensure IP protection
New Elasticsearch API, Security Filtering, NXQL Integration

The Nuxeo Platform already included strong, tight integration with Elasticsearch, the de facto standard in enterprise search, delivering the most advanced search capabilities in the document and digital asset management market.
We have extended our integration with Elasticsearch even further:

  • New Elasticsearch pass-through API automatically takes care of security filtering: developers can now use a new Elasticsearch pass-through API to query the Nuxeo repository, and build custom Elasticsearch front-end applications, with no need to worry about security filtering. They are now able to use the native Elasticsearch Query DSL, with the Elasticsearch client of their choice (JavaScript, Python, etc.), to build search functionality using the Nuxeo Platform. The Nuxeo Platform dynamically applies permission filters to end user search queries, ensuring that only those objects that the user has access to are presented in search results.
  • Elasticsearch Hints for NXQL: Developers can now invoke Elasticsearch functionality within NXQL, the native query language for the Nuxeo Platform. NXQL-based programming can now include Elasticsearch-powered fuzzy search, geospatial search and much more.
JavaScript for Content Automation

The Nuxeo Platform’s Content Automation service, which enables developers to define business logic by assembling high-level atomic operations and bind them to user actions or events, can now be programmed in JavaScript.

Content Automation Javascript

Developers can quickly create business logic in JavaScript, tapping into the extensive operation library exposed by the platform. As any Content Automation chain, JavaScript chains can be natively exposed through the Nuxeo Platform’s REST API.

Automation scripts can be created in Nuxeo Studio’s script editor, which includes useful inline JavaScript suggestions, or using any JavaScript editor.
