This feature introduces a new Currency Sign option for the Ecommerce Form Page, allowing you to set the currency sign used on the ecom form. This option is set via a new field on the Display Formatting screen of the asset.

Previously, to change the currency type of an Ecommerce Form (for example, from Dollars to Pounds), users would be required to modify the sign on each individual format where it was used. This feature makes changing the currency type of the ecom form much more accessible, by reducing this process to a single step.

The value entered into the Currency Sign field is referenced through a new keyword replacement, which is used on the format of keyword replacements like . This new keyword replacement is also used on the default Individual Asset Format and Item Format attributes on the Display Formatting screen. Modifying the value in the Currency Sign field will amend all instances of the currency sign on the Ecommerce Form Page.

New Trigger Action to Delete an Image Variety

A new trigger action has been added to Squiz Matrix, allowing you to delete either a single image variety or all varieties under a specified image asset. This image asset can be configured via the interface of the trigger action or specified as the asset that fired the trigger.

The Delete Image Variety trigger action allows you to enter the name of the variety to delete or select to delete all varieties. The trigger action also provides parameter configuration to dynamically source the variety to delete.

LDAP Data Source Asset

The LDAP Data Source asset allows you to query an external LDAP directory within Matrix, returning LDAP groups and users as shadow assets within your system. The LDAP information from these assets can then be accessed via keyword replacements for use on your site, for example, to list LDAP user information on an Asset Listing.

The LDAP Data Source allows you to set up a connection to an LDAP directory (similarly to an LDAP Bridge) or select an existing LDAP Bridge asset within Squiz Matrix.

Once a connection has been made to an external LDAP directory, search queries are used to filter the returned results, with both attribute and dynamic variable search filtering supported.

Similar to the existing Data Source assets, available keywords will be listed on the LDAP Data Source in order to print the information returned by the LDAP query.

This asset has been added to further extend Squiz Matrix's LDAP functionality, providing more flexibility for users to determine the LDAP information returned and how it is accessed and used within the system.
