Prism release to preview 27th July 2021

We’re pleased to announce that the next release of Prism is now available for preview.
This release includes:

  • Stock purchase request – collection site now optional
  • Single sign-on certificate updated

Stock purchase request – collection site now optional

The Prism stock purchase request form has been updated so that it only records a collection site if one is selected. Where the field is hidden or the user leaves it containing a hypen (as below in the screen shot), then the Stock Purchase Request will not record a collection site.

Single sign-on certificate updated

The certificate used to provide Single Sign-On solutions with SAML based Identify Providers will expire on 20th August 2021. In order to provide a non-disruptive service, we have added our new certificate into the Prism system, allowing you to update your Identity Provider, ensuring no break in service.

Please update your Identify Provider metadata with our new certificate as soon as possible, but no later than 20th August and also update your single sign on configuration to use our new URLs for Prism.

Release Procedure

Making the most of your preview

Please review the preview version as early as possible, to become familiarise yourself with the new functionality and check that your tenancy still behaves as expected in terms of functionalities, including extensions, and styling.

You can preview this release by inserting ‘-demo’ into your tenancy URL after the word ‘prism’, like this:{your tenancy name} . If you have your own host name, you’ll need to use instead.

Release to the live service

Prism will be released to live service on Thursday 29th July 2021.
