Tags of connectors and business objects for easier search / categorization

Each connector/business object, widget and data type can now be tagged. For example, project-related configuration objects can be given a project name, which makes them easier to find again.


Automatic reloading of the preview when saving in the UI Designer

Every click on the “Deploy” button automatically updates the preview in the browser.


New Business Object API incl. autocompletion

Updated Features

Conflict management during import of transports

When importing Simplifier transports, the user will be made aware of potential conflicts in the future. This creates transparency for shared connectors, data types or business objects. Read more »


Usage List for Connectors and Business Objects

For efficient management of dependencies between applications and data from backend systems, we now offer an overview that shows which data is used by which application or which interfaces are integrated in which applications.

  • Busy indicator for access to connectors or business objects can now be switched on and off
  • Validation of mandatory parameters for mappings for business objects and connectors
  • New toolbar incl. copy & paste function
  • Validation of the configuration when saving the user story

Security measures

Brute force attacks can now be prevented via the security policies.

Simplifier Universal Client for Android

We have reworked our Simplifier Universal Client for Android to include the same features as in the iOS Universal Client. In addition to the function that you can work offline with the Simplifier client or the autostart function for already installed business applications, we now also support the fingerprint sensor for login with Android. Furthermore, the Android client now appears in a new layout in the native Android material design.

Moreover, we offer an optimized menu navigation on data glasses, depending on the hardware complete with voice control. Support information is also automatically transmitted to the server on request.
And for the developers, we now offer a developer mode that displays errors from the console directly on the device.
