With this release we are pleased to introduce the first features of our new LUY frontend.
Since this is the initial release for our new frontend, we have added everything that is needed to enter our new frontend and navigate through LUY, as well as introducing our main basic features like table view, single element view, and reports page.
1. New features
As this is the initial first release, we have more features to introduce than we can count. We will therefore only highlight the most important ones here.
1.1 Access to new LUY frontend
Selected customers now have a new button in their LUY navigation called Activate new frontend. Clicking on it will switch to the new frontend. Users can easily switch back to the old frontend by clicking on the respective deactivate new frontend button in the same area in the new frontend.
1.2 New navigation layout
We’ve rebuilt and redesigned the whole layout on navigating through LUY to make it easier and intuitive to find your way in LUY. For more in-depth details, check out our article on Navigation through our new frontend made easy.
1.2.1 Different themes
Users can now switch between a light, dark, and high contrast mode for better readability in LUY.
1.3 New reports page
We’ve rebuilt the whole report page, rethought all its features, and placed it more prominently to make it your central hub for all your reports. For more in-depth details, check out our article on Access all your reports from a single page with ease.
1.3.1 New snack bar
The new snackbar feature allows you to manipulate (multiple) reports easier: share, subscribe or delete them with a few clicks.
1.3.2 LUY supervisor role can now see all reports
We have added the ability for LUY supervisors to now see all reports in LUY from all users so they can administrate them more easily.
1.4 New data page
We have rebuilt the whole data page, starting with the structure view.
1.4.1 New auto generated structure view
Admins now can select out of three different color schemes for the structure view (Administration > Customizing > Design).
The structure view is now automatically generated by LUY based on activated buiding blocks and the permissions of individual users, so users will now only see building block types that they have permission to view.
1.4.2 New table view
We have rebuilt the whole table view (former list view) and added a whole lot of new features to it. For more in-depth details to all the new features, check out our article onNew table view shows reports with more details and makes navigation easier.
It is now possible to completely customize the look of the table to your liking (compact rows, add alternating row colors, show gridlines).
The new header gives you more insights into the report that is currently open (name, description, and tags).
We have created a new way to add and remove columns to the table.
The different attribute types are now presenting their information with status icons, color, and different label types.
1.4.3 New single element view
The single element view is completely new, now dividing the element information into three different tabs to make it easier to get the information you need and only those. For more in-depth details to all the new features, check out our article on New single element view provides a better overview and navigatoin through attributes and relations.
Attributes in the single element view now have redesigned styling to better represent the content and make it easier to read by using labels, colors, and icons.
Information flow elements will now display a clearer overview of connected information systems, the information flow direction, related technical components, and transported business objects as well as their transport direction.
1.5 New diagram view
With this release we present the first two diagram types from our old frontend migrated and redesigned to our new frontend.
1.5.1 Pie chart diagram
We have added the first iteration of our pie chart diagram to the new frontend. Users can open and view pie chart diagram reports.
For more in-depth details to all the new features, check out our article on Open and view pie chart diagrams in our new frontend.
1.5.2 Landscape diagram
We have added the first iteration of our landscape diagram to the new frontend. Users can open and view landscape diagram reports.
For more in-depth details to all the new features, check out our article on Open and view landscape diagrams in our new frontend.
Currently all features available in the new frontend (with exception of administration > system & customizing) are read only.
This means you can open and work with already existing reports but are not able to edit them.
This function will be part of a later release, stay tuned!
