Patch On Demand

Following are the list of patches rolled out to address existing issues in Zoho Creator.

1. String Comparison Issue Fix

This fix has been rolled out to address an existing flaw in string comparison results. When two strings entered dynamically in a field are compared, any existing space before or after the strings are ignored. This returns incorrect comparison results. The following code added to the "On User Input" section of "Name" field in a Zoho Creator form explains how this fix works.  

var = input.Name.replaceAll(" ","");   // returns the name after removing all spaces from it
if (input.Name != Var)                      // assuming we enter a name with a space, for example, " John"
alert("not equal");
  • The "Name" field holds " John" and the variable "var" holds "John". 
  • When the fix is not enabled, it returns an alert "Equal", which is wrong.
  • When the fix is enabled, it returns an alert "Not equal", which is correct.

6. New Sharing Rule Issue Fix

We have fixed the issue in the New Sharing Rule options under Users and Permissions section.

How it works before the fix:

The New Sharing Rule(defined) will be inoperative when the rule contains Roles and Subordinates in the Shared From or Shared To fields. The Default Application Permissions will apply to the module.

How it works after the fix:

You can define a rule to share records associated with a role and its subordinates to other roles and its subordinates with the specific level of access permissions. When the rule is created, the records of the Shared From roles and subordinates can be accessed(Read-Only or Read and Write) by Shared To roles and its subordinates.
