Enabling New UI for All customers

Posted by HosnyA on 27-Aug-2015 08:15

How do we enable the New UI for all customers without providing this option to the Customer Administrators?

Rollbase Private Cloud 4.0.0.0

Ok. Understood.  As was answered before we don’t have a mechanism to do just that. 
For now, you will have to login under each tenant and enable new ui for all users.
 
By the way, have you tried white labeling new ui and is it working well for you?

Yes. This allows us to do the painful white-labelling process for just one UI and not both UIs.

If I am not mistaken, I don't think there is a way to achieve this at the moment.

Confirmed, we do not have support for this feature at this point.

-Thanks

Do you mean you want all Customers (All Tenants) to be on new ui and for administrators to not be able to switch to classic UI?
If that’s it, please could you outline the use case?

By the way, how do you like the new interface?

White-labelling is a very painful process. References to Progress and Rollbase are hard-coded all over the set-up pages, getting started component, etc and we need to spend a lot of time going through each and every page to identify these references and change them. On top of that the previous css files loaded were not specifically referenced to Rollbase (it was called rbtheme.css), whereas now they are specifically called rollbase (not once, but twice). So not helpful at all.

Hosny,

We have made a change to 4.0.2 coming up very soon:  You can define the shared property "EnableNUIForAll" and that will switch all your tenants/customers to new ui.

Hope that you will like this enhancements for helping with your request.

Thierry.

We are tracking the white-labeling issues reported earlier as PSC00339694 & the same will be addressed in forthcoming releases.

With respect to this newly reported concern regarding naming of css files, are you referring to the following css files referenced by New UI pages:

kendo.rollbasedefault.min.css

newui.rollbasedefault.css

Could you please elaborate on this so that we can add relevant details to the defect description.

Regards,

Siraj.

Hi Thierry,

That is brilliant and a very quick implementation. Thank you for that. I have one question though. Will this change be permanent or will the Administrator of the Tenant be able to switch back? It's worth considering this as well and disabling the option to switch back or have another option to enable/disable the switch back if you want to allow Rollbase Administrator to decide this.

Thank you,

H

Hi Siraj,

We are referring to kendo.rollbasedefault.min.css & newui.rollbasedefault-min.css. For us, white-labelling means presenting the platform in our Product name instead of Rollbase. Therefore these small references to Rollbase (and Progress in some instances) hard-coded all over the place don't help. We have not embarked on any mobile environment white-labelling yet, so am unable to comment on those at the moment.

Regards,

H

The shared property, if set, will enable NewUI for the complete Rollbase instance and when switched off reverts to the current behavior (selective override capabilities).
