SOAP assets within Squiz Matrix allow you to connect to a remote SOAP server via a variety of authentication methods, including basic HTTP authentication, WS-security username tokens and JSESSIONID cookies.

This feature introduces a new authentication type on SOAP assets in order to integrate with your Marketo service, allowing for the creation, retrieval and removal of entities and data stored within their system.

The Marketo Signature authentication option can be configured in the Authentication Type field of your SOAP Connection Details section. This authentication type is available on the SOAP Data Source asset, as well as the Make SOAP Call form submission action, form step action and trigger action.

Selecting the Marketo Signature authentication option will display the Authentication Details fields allowing you to supply the access and secret keys for your Marketo connection.

This feature has been added to support Marketo integration within Squiz Matrix, providing all existing functionality and features. 

New JS and CSS File Folder Assets (#6668) 

This feature introduces two new assets to provide a platform for serving multiple JS and CSS files as a single, packaged file.

The JS File Folder and CSS File Folder assets allow you to create a single folder, specifying the individual file assets to attach beneath it. These linked files are then merged based the settings of the asset.

Files can be linked to both the JS and CSS File Folder assets on their Details screen. Files selected in this section will be NOTICE linked to the asset.

The Minification settings of the File Folder assets allow you to select how the linked files will be merged and whether the code will be minified. Both assets provide Squiz Matrix's Basic Minification method, as well as an option to Merge Without Minification.

In addition to these settings, the JS File Folder can utilise the Closure Compiler tool to merge and minify linked files, and create an associated JavaScript Source Map file (Source Map files can be viewed on the asset's Source Map Files screen).

A Regenerate File field allows you to regenerate the merged file, for example, if the content of a linked file has been modified.

The JS File Folder and CSS File Folder assets have been created to developed to provide best practice performance solutions for your systems, serving minified and well-optimised code.
