Posted by Community Admin on 17-Feb-2017 00:00

Sitefinity 10.0 Beta is available for download on this link

Nuget packages are available on http://nuget.sitefinity.com/ (use pre-release tag)

This version contains 

Authentication reinvention, SVG Images Support, System Health Check, Built-In Site Warmup, Diagnostic module improvements and extended functionality, Cache Control Policy Management support, Site Shield, Delete Add-On, Tools updates, multiple bug fixes and more. 

Please, take a look and let us know what you think!

Important Note: Beta is not production ready and should not be used on live sites. Upgrades from and to it will not be supported. 

Authentication & Security

Integration with third-party Identity Providers

(documentation)

Оut-of-the-box integration added with the most popular authentication types/providers:

  • ADFS (over SAML or JWT)
  • Windows authentication
  • Basic authentication  
  • Facebook
  • Google
  • Microsoft
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn
  • GitHub
In addition, custom integrations are easier due to a simplified API.

OpenID Connect-Based User Authentication

(documentation)

OpenID Connect allows clients of all types, including Web-based, mobile, and JavaScript clients, to request and receive information about authenticated sessions and end-users. Here are the main benefits:

  • Interoperability
  • Security
  • Ease of deployment
  • Flexibility
  • Wide support of devices
  • Enabling Claims Providers to be distinct from Identity Providers

For more information you could check the official OpenID Connect site.

Login by Email

(documentation)

Sitefinity 10.0 supports login with email (instead of username). There is no more a need to specify both username and email when registering a user in Sitefinity. The email is sufficient making the login process more convenient as you don't have to remember specific username.

If a user has a registration with username (different than email) both username and email will work successfully for login.

Association of Sitefinity roles and external claims

(documentation)

IT administrators can configure a mapping between external claims (e.g. AD groups/roles) and Sitefinity roles for implementing external role management of the new web site users.

Site Shield

(documentation)

While developing a website that only a chosen group of people should be able to see, Website Managers can invite people to the secured site and monitor when they access the site and from what devices. Stakeholders are able to review the progress even without being CMS users.

This feature will be available only for Sitefinity license holders who have Multisite Management capability.

Roles and Permissions Management Improvements

(documentation)

Better user experience and functionality for managing permissions in Мultisite environments with several providers.

Application Status Page Improvements

(documentation)

In order to hide the CMS utilized by the web site from the web site visitors, Sitefinity allows administrators to configure the application status page relative URL.

Performance and Scalability

Cache Control Policy Management

(documentation)
Support for client cache based on standard cache control HTTP response headers such as Cache-Control max age, public etc. 

  • Improved overall performance for website pages by obtaining a cached responses.
  • New UI screen for working the Cache control headers.
  • Separate cache profiles for media items – different profiles can be configured for different media items (images, videos, documents)

System Health Check service

(documentation)
Developers and System Administrators can use the Sitefinity health check API endpoint to easily get the current status of a website in terms of database access, NLB communication, Internet connectivity and Redis access.  

Built-In Site Warmup

(documentation) IT Administrators can ensure that their sites are configured for optimal performance from the very first user visit. The Sitefinity Warmup tool gets all sitemap pages, compiles them based on sitemap priority and stores them in the output cache, so they are ready to perform at their best on the user’s first visit. It all works in the background and Developers can extend it leveraging its plugin architecture.

Diagnostics Module Improvements

(documentation)
Multiple improvements in profiling capabilities, while in the same time reducing potential performance impact on live environments of the profiling process. The new reports and tracking capabilities include:

  • MVC Widgets Profiler - instead of page level only, profiling is going deeper to the widget level 
  • Added Razor templates compilation profiler
  • Site re-initialization profiler - track restarts of the web site
  • SQL Profiling without performance impact (statistics only)
  • NLB requests tracking
  • Light mode is introduced - web and database requests are tracked separately
  • Data truncation for historical records

Marketing

SVG Images Support

(documentation)

Content Marketers can easily use SVG images for better website performance and visitor experience, especially on mobile devices.

Multisite Data Tracking

(documentation)
Sitefinity 10 makes it possible to isolate customer journey data for individual websites powered by a single CMS instance (codebase) in separate data centers in the Digital Experience Cloud. Thus, Digital Marketers can get data-driven insights that are specific to the brand or website they manage.

MVC-Based Widgets Tracking

All MVC widgets now match the behavioral tracking capabilities of web forms

Persona Scoring Improvements

(documentation)
A new capability of the Persona Scoring rules allows Digital Marketers to score every visit of a particular web site section or page, rather than the first time only, which simplifies the Scoring Model definition and reduces the model maintenance costs.

Lead Scoring Improvements

(documentation)
A new capability of the Lead Scoring rules allows Digital Marketers to score repetitive interactions measuring an increased engagement of a particular contact.

Administration

Export and import a ZIP file

(documentation)

Allows for the export and import of content and structure to and from a .zip file. The .zip file can be used to import the data in another Sitefinity instance,thus providing the opportunity to use starter kits for new projects.

Delete Add-ons

(documentation)

Add-ons can now be uninstalled by uninstalling the NuGet packages holding them. After the website initializes, Sitefinity will automatically remove all functionality, structure and content that were part of that Add-on.

Export user  profiles

(documentation)

User Profile structure is included in the export/import functionality for deployment, add-on or .zip file, so new projects with similar user profiling can easily benefit from previous structures.

Lots of great stuff here! I'm looking forward to trying them out. Content import/export and the new sign-on options probably are my favorites. Plus lots of bug fixes!

 

Some of your FP links are trying to link to tpdogfood instead of the public Feedback Portal, though.

Posted by Community Admin on 18-Feb-2017 00:00

We're also eager to start using v. 10 in some of our projects.
Lot's of awesomeness in there for us.

Any date on when v. 10 is going to be production ready?
I guess early March?

Posted by Community Admin on 19-Feb-2017 00:00
What about the new angular backend? Postponed again?
Posted by Community Admin on 20-Feb-2017 00:00
OC, we will release more details on the new Sitefinity backend after the Sitefinity 10 release, which is planned for the week of March 13, 2017. Pavel, this answers your question on the release date.

Re: Auth

Are there any docs for extending or integrating custom rules?  We need GoogleAuth here (on an apps domain), but on success we need to then run a couple checks on a custom DB before allowing that login... is there a method to allow for this?

Posted by Community Admin on 21-Feb-2017 00:00

Hi Steve,

The documentation about how to implement a custom provider (or extend a current one) is still not released. We are working on it. I will check the codebase for you and let you know what kind of solution you could use.

Regards,

Peter

 

Posted by Community Admin on 23-Feb-2017 00:00

Hello. As the official documentation is still not ready here is a sample how to achieve this: CustomExternalAuthentication

Basically you need to create your own AuthenticationProvider deriving from one of our provider classes (SitefinityGoogleAuthenticationProvider, SitefinityFacebookAuthenticationProvider, etc. ), which provide several overridable methods. Then to register this provider you need to override the AuthenticationProvidersInitializer class and put the custom initializer into the ObjectFactory.

 

Please, let us know if this is enough to achieve what you want.

 

Regards,

Viktor

@Viktor

Looks perfect, much more readable than the current Git repo for social auth :)

Posted by Community Admin on 24-Feb-2017 00:00
  • Placeholder text on the backend login form is still "Email or username"
  • Why does the health check 404 when the site finishes bootstrapping?
  • Docs for creating custom checks?  ...assume I could decompile to find out how, but docs would be nicer :)
  • Criticality doc missing off the link on the page docs.sitefinity.com/overview-health-check-service
  • Would be nice for Warmup to have a default useragent specified so I didnt have to manually add one
  • ...warmup doesn't seem to do anything, am I missing how to set it up?  I followed the docs, recycle the site.  Click on the pages in the sitemap and they all still take a few seconds to load... clicking back to them once I have already gone in they are instant so I can see that the page is not "warm"
  • How can we specify backend pages to warm up, can that be OOTB?
Posted by Community Admin on 24-Feb-2017 00:00

Does the MVC-based Widgets Tracking include custom developed MVC widgets or just OOB widgets?  If not is there code snippets we can add to custom MVC widgets to get them communicating with DEC?

Regarding:

"MVC-Based Widgets Tracking
All MVC-based widgets in the CMS can now send data to the Digital Experience Cloud out of the box..."

Hello,

 

i've found a bug in this beta.

I don't know if this bug is already in a previous release. If you create a form you can't select the form with the "old" built in Form Control. You get no error. The control designer loads and show the standard empty text: "No records to display."

 

The "new" built in feather control works.

 

Another question: How can i map a Sitefinty role to new Google/Facebook users.

Is there a documentation you can provide us?

 

Kind Regards

Emanuel

An further question: Why the Sitefinity Site Shield is not working.

Can this due to my localhost adresses?

Posted by Community Admin on 01-Mar-2017 00:00

Hi,

I have tested the Beta release locally and everything is working at my end. Could you please elaborate more on your problem? What exactly is not working. Could you hide the web site? If you use smtp4dev tool, could you examine the access emails?

Regards,
Peter

Hi,

I installed your beta version and try to configure a SSO like your documentation specify:

docs.sitefinity.com/administration-configure-single-sign-on-with-sitefinity-cms-as-sts

I receive a error "Invalid JSON primitive" on the sitefinity client after the login

My configuration:

I installed 2 sitefinity version 10. All in localhost with SQL Express. One is the CMS STS and the second is the client. I don't use https.

Can you tell me why I receive this error?

One point  I don't understand the documentation for the configuration of the CMS STS about the 4 paragraph: "In the left pane, click Security and in ValidationKey, enter the key that you copied in Step 16 of the above procedure."

But If I have multiple Sitefinity client which key must be copied ???

Regards,
Posted by Community Admin on 09-Mar-2017 00:00

Hi. This error normally happens when the client application cannot obtain the metadata from the STS due to miscofiguration. I checked the documentation and it appears to have some incorrect points:

  • Point 3 - In Issuer, enter the full URL to the STS, concatinated by /Sitefinity/Auth - the path actually depends on the ServicePath configured in Settings -> Advanced -> Authentication -> SecurityTokenService. By default it's '/Sitefinity/Authenticate/OpenID', not '/Sitefinity/Auth'. You can change it to anything you want or leave it with the default value. This is the most probable reason for the error mentioned.
  • Regarding the Validation key - actually the Validation key from the STS should be copied to any client application, not the way around
  • Also there is another encryption key that should be copied too. In Advanced settings -> Authentication copy the EncryptionKey from the STS to any client application.
  • Moreover, in the STS when configuring the client you may need to configure the RedirectUris and PostLoggoutRedirectUris. Add the allowed redirect URLs for the specified client, for example 'http://myclientapp.com/'

Let me know if you managed to configure the SSO

Posted by Community Admin on 09-Mar-2017 00:00

Hello. Regarding your question about the Sitefinity roles for new Google/Facebook users there is a setting in Settings -> Advanced -> Authentication -> SecurityTokenService -> AuthenticationProviders. Select the provider and there is a setting 'Auto assigned roles'. Keep in mind that this roles will be assigned only for new users

Posted by Community Admin on 10-Mar-2017 00:00

Hi Viktor,

No I have anymore the error but on the Client website when I'm log-in I can enter what I want like username password. And he display the user of the CMS STS. And I cannot go to the backend of the client ?!?

Something is strange with this configuration. What I want is simple:

A sitefinity website he would be the CMS STS  and a other sitefinity website he would be the client.

When I log-in on the client he check if the user exist into the CMS STS if yes I'm log-in and I can see the backend of the Client CMS.

Can you please describe me step by step the correct procedure to do that?

Thanks

Regards,

Posted by Community Admin on 10-Mar-2017 00:00

Viktor,

I create a new client and follow again step by step the SSO configuration now I receive this error when I want login to my  new client (see screenshot)

Hi Richard,
What we mean with this item is that all out-of-the-box MVC widgets are now covered with the same tracking as web forms, since previously some MVC widgets were lacking the tracking functionality provided in web forms widgets.
If you extend any of them and replace the views and scripts, the server-side events will still work as long as the logic in the overriden model base methods is not skipped. The client-side tracking will also work as long as the calls performed by the DEC JavaScript SDK are still there. You can find more information on the tracking events here: docs.sitefinity.com/.../understand-the-connector-built-in-tracking-event-handlers
For new custom widgets, you would have to utilize the DEC JavaScript SDK or .NET SDK additionally in order to configure the necessary tracking.
I hope that helps,
Ivailo

Hi. Can you enable the logging for the STS from Advanced settings -> SecurityTokenService -> IdentityServer. This will log the actual error in the Authentication log. Normally this happens when something is still not properly configured.

Also, does this happen before or after you enter your credentials?

Posted by Community Admin on 13-Mar-2017 00:00

Hi Viktor,

This log help me there's a little bit a mistake from me (clientid was wrong) and that was after I enter the credentials.

Now I have this situation:

- When the STS is login-in with the admin user I can use any CMS Client with  any username or password and I'm log-in why?

- When the STS is logout and when I use one of my CMS Test Client and log-in I receive a unexpected error windows "something went wrong"

I send you into the attachment my authentication log files from the CMS STS

Can you please tell me why I have this issue?

Thanks

Posted by Community Admin on 13-Mar-2017 00:00

Did you copy the EncryptionKey from the STS application to the client one located in Advanced settings -> Authentication? Because the error you get is that there is a problem with the decryption of the data sent from the client to the STS. Make sure to restart the application after updating the settings.

Posted by Community Admin on 13-Mar-2017 00:00

Right I don't copy the EncryptionKey now it's good and also updated correctly in Documentation '-)

Now my new questions:

When I log-in at first to CMS STS and when I go to the CMS Client and click on login link I see the  input box of log-in and here I can enter what I want... It's possible to be log-in immediately without see login widget? (see attachement)

And most important how can I go to the backend from my CMS Client for create/editing pages (not the CMS STS backend)?

Posted by Community Admin on 15-Mar-2017 00:00

Hi Viktor,

I found this issue, he comes from the name of the provider. A blank space was insert at the end. I fix it.

He would be fine to insert a comment from the doc before the paragraph 18 to restart the IIS because the membership provider isn't see the first time from administration / users

 

NEW Question:

I have a CMS STS website

I have a first client CMS TEST1 and I have a second client CMS TEST2 configure with CMS STS.

When I'm logout from CMS TEST1 I want also that CMS TEST2 is also logout how can I do that?

 

 

Posted by Community Admin on 15-Mar-2017 00:00

Glad to hear that you managed to make it work.

Regarding your question, what you want is Single Sign-Out which unfortunately is currently not supported. It may be logged as a Feature Request.

Error in Sitefinity Nuget on updating?

I'm not able to update projects with Progress.Sitefinity.Authentication. It refers to Telerik.Sitefinity.OpenAccess version 10.0.6400.0, but the correct version there should be 2016.2.822.1 ?

Posted by Community Admin on 16-Mar-2017 00:00

Hi Viktor,

I have a CMS STS website and a CMS client website. I configure for SSO. The login widget is on my Client CMS but the registration widget is a redirection and come from my CMS STS.

When someone is registered the user is created into the Database of CMS STS automatically that is normal and I can see the provider into my CMS Client.

It's possible to have a real copy at the same time on the local DB of the CMS Client? So I can in future separate my CMS Client from my CMS STS.

Can you give me a tip for that?
Posted by Community Admin on 16-Mar-2017 00:00
If I understand you right, you want to have the same user in both Databases (CMS STS and CMS Client)? This is not recommended, as it will lead to duplicate users and this can make the authentication behave incorrectly.
Posted by Community Admin on 16-Mar-2017 00:00

My problem is when in future I want that the CMS Client want be standalone (not more attach to a CMS STS) how can I find my users.

Especially If I have more than one CMS Client attach to a CMS STS. I want backup my user for each CMS client.

Have you a solution for that?

 

Posted by Community Admin on 16-Mar-2017 00:00

Login form still shows "Email or username" on the live SF10 instance eh, there is no more "Or" when they are one in the same right?

 

 

Posted by Community Admin on 16-Mar-2017 00:00

Hello OC,

From what I gather you are trying to update a project which references Sitefinity 10.0.6350.0-beta packages. If this is the case could you please try removing them completely using the following command in the Package Manager Console:

Uninstall-Package Telerik.Sitefinity.All -RemoveDependencies

 

Afterwards try installing the latest NuGet packages once again.

 

Posted by Community Admin on 16-Mar-2017 00:00

Hi Steve,

You have one field on the user registration but under the hood it is used to fill both username and email (this way they are the same).

For upgraded projects (or users created with API - e.g. importing users from other system or using custom registration widget) you will have the ability to have different values for username and email. That's the reason the login widget allows using email or username.

If you setup brand new Sitefinity 10.0 and use the standard widgets - the new users will use email only.

 

Best Wishes,

Dimitar
