Nuxeo Studio Release Notes

Discover upcoming and recent changes in Nuxeo Studio.

Upcoming Changes

Actions Renamed As Buttons

Actions menu in Designer will be renamed as Buttons, and the related options as follows:

  • Operation Action becomes Button: Choose this option to create a button using configuration only.
  • Action becomes Custom Button: Choose it to create your own button element using code for extensive capabilities.

Icons will change too to reflect the options more clearly.


The + button in Designer will be refreshed at the same time, to be more explicit:

  • Tooltips are shown on the option you choose,
  • When only two options are available, clicking the + button directly leads you to the one that is the simplest to use.

Better Contextual Help

Studio Designer will show contextual help on click so that you can copy/paste code samples and click on documentation links.

Help In Page Provider Configuration

  • Aggregates for a page provider will provide default values, for instance on the date format.
  • Contextual help will be improved to guide you on options that had no previous explanation, be simpler to understand otherwise and provide samples.
  • Quick filter name will be shown in the user interface when no translation has been defined for it.

Polymer 3 Migration

Compatibility for Nuxeo Studio with Polymer 3 to keep our technical stack up to date.

Recently Released Changes

Search on File Type or Size

It is possible to define aggregates on the sub-fields for a blob property. It can be used to provide search options to find files of a specific type, or based on the file size for example.


Use the histogram or range aggregate types in combination with the length property for the file size, the terms aggregate with the mime-type property for the file type.

These options work with any blob property, multivalued ones as well.


Other Noteworthy Mentions

  • In workflows, resolution actions is renamed as task buttons (NXS-5084).
  • In workflows, "exclusive node" is renamed as "Follow only first true transition" (NXS-5085).

More Consistent Layouts

  • When creating a Create, Edit or Import layout, the title field is automatically set as required to keep consistency with the default Web UI behavior.

  • When creating a layout for a workflow task, fewer properties are generated to avoid information duplication with the one exposed in Web UI.

New Options in Page Provider Screen

  • file:content sub-fields are exposed when defining an aggregate: to configure searches on file size or file MIME type for instance.
  • ecm:ancestorId is exposed in both predicates and aggregates: can be used as an alternative to ecm:path when you know the document id instead.
  • BETWEEN operator is exposed in predicates for dates, float and integer numbers.
