Release notes for Magnolia CMS 6.2.8
Magnolia CMS 6.2.8 is a bug-fixing and security release that comes earlier than planned to fix a compatibility issue related to the Connector Packs, the Digital Asset Management module and the External DAM module. The issue was identified in specific configurations of some of our customers who intended to upgrade to Magnolia CMS 6.2.7.
New SSO module released

JCR Browser and Pages apps added to App launcher via decoration
The JCR Browser and Pages apps have been removed from the JCR App launcher configuration and added via decoration instead. In case of a custom App launcher configuration, you might need to update this resource file or provide your own decoration to move it from the default location. For example:
appLauncherLayout: groups: edit: #Remove from the default location apps: pages-app: enabled: false manage: #You can still use the old JCR configuration here instead apps: pages-app: enabled: true
Assets app can check whether asset providers are enabled
In the DAM API, the new
property allows you to disable a particular asset provider if, for instance, it does not
have the necessary credentials to access the assets. The default value for the property is
Setting the property to
false hides the related DAM subapp in the UI and prevents it from starting.
You can also use definition decoration to configure the property. For example:
providers: bynderProvider: identifier: bynder enabled: false class: info.magnolia.external.dam.bynder.BynderAssetProvider renderers: bynder: class: info.magnolia.external.dam.bynder.BynderAssetRenderer proxyMode: true mediaTypes: audio: 'audio/*' video: 'video/*'
