OpenXava 4.2.3 released OpenXava 4.2.3 released

Noobeek 2017.02

February 22, 2017

Noobeek gives some of the power behind OpenXava to end users.

This new 2017.02 version includes:

  • Administration modules for managing users and roles.
  • Now you can organize your modules in folders.
  • Adding new fields, references, lists, module and moving and removing fields only available for users with developer role.
  • When the user navigates among records or executes actions the browser URL is modified to be a valid permalink.
  • Session timeout is 8 hours, before it was 30 minutes.
  • The last list format (chart or list) is remembered between sessions by user.
  • Delete selected rows is not available for Charts.
  • Rich text data in list mode shows only plain text until 200 characters. 
  • Fix: When a user join to an application and the joined role has not modules it keeps asking to join the application.
  • Fix: Pressing Cancel when adding columns to the list used for searching a reference fails.

Users and roles management

Starting today Noobeek users can enjoy the powerful users and roles management from XavaPro, including fine-grained security to exclude actions or fields by role. Go to the Admin folder from Start button to explore the administration modules:

Though you can create your own roles, the roles module comes with some predefined roles ready to use:

  • admin has access to administration modules.
  • developer can add, remove and move fields, references and lists; and add new modules.
  • joined is the role of the user that joins to our application.
  • self sign up does not apply to Noobeek.
  • user has access to all module, but administration ones.
If you want that a user that has joined your application could access to all your modules, go to Users module, choose that user and add the user role to it. If you want that user could customize the application add the developer role too. On the other hand, if you want that the users have access to some modules just after joined, select the joined role in Roles and add the modules you want to it.


In the start button you can place folders to organize your modules:

To know how, read the XavaPro documentation about folders, works in the same way.


When you choose a record the URL in the browser is modified with the record id:

In this way you can copy and paste the URL, and send it by email, for example, to send a reference to a specific record.
Also you can add the action to execute in the URL like this: to execute the new action, or to go list mode.
