This is pre-release software that may contain features that are incomplete or subject to change in a future release.
Minimum System Requirements: Windows 10/11 or Windows Server 2016/2019/2022, Microsoft .NET Framework v4.8

What has Changed?

Data Synchronisation Studio 6

In Version 6 Data Sync has a new Icon and new bright colours. You can install V6 alongside V3 and use your license key to activate both.

Although visually much hasn't changed, there has been a lot of restructuring in the back-end.

The core code base has been updated to run on .NET Standard and the UI and Data Connectors on .NET Framework 4.8, the code compiler now runs on Roslyn and supports C#7.3 Syntax.

Connect to Ouvvi in Data Sync

Connect to Ouvvi Projects from DS

A new feature has been added to the Data Sync designer where you can now connect to your Ouvvi projects from the menu.

Once you have connected to your Ouvvi site you can quickly create new projects, create new Data Sync steps, and then design and edit those steps within Data Sync.

This should help you quickly create or mock up your integration projects, and then you can work through creating each individual project as needed. It should also reduce the amount of time it takes to open a project from Ouvvi, and make it more obvious when a data sync step is local or stored in your Ouvvi database.

New Ouvvi UI

In Version 6 the Ouvvi UI has been updated to make navigation easier. The main toolbar can now be found at the top of the page and any sub navigation will appear in a toolbar below that.

To further help with navigation we've added in overlay windows for tasks that shouldn't need to be redirected to a whole new page. This helps you to keep track of where you are and what you're doing without needing to reload the page.

We have also tried to add as much functionality within the UI, to prevent you from needing to access the Database directly, so you can now reset the queue and trigger clock from Ouvvi.

Alongside this we also have more dark themes available in System Settings, you can choose from Blue, Purple, Teal and Yellow.

IP Filtering in Ouvvi

IP Filtering

A new feature added to Ouvvi is the ability to filter access by IP address. This is especially useful if you expose your Ouvvi site to the internet.

If someone tries to access your Ouvvi site and their IP is not included in the list then they are greeted by a 403 message "Access Denied". By default localhost is always given access to prevent you from being locked out of your site.

Authentication Options

When you now configure your Ouvvi sites from the deployment manager you can choose between Windows or Forms Authentication.

Windows Authentication will use the machine/domain user profiles, which has been the only option for Ouvvi until now.

Forms Authentication will allow you to use either Windows, Azure AD or set your own Internal Credentials which are stored in the Ouvvi database.

We have done our best to make it as easy as possible to set these, using drop-downs and the UI guiding you through it at the point of database setup. The Azure AD authentication is set up after the initial configuration.
