Known issues

Breaking change in "Create Dataowner" script. Because of changes in the User tables, dataowner-scripts created before 2.11 can't run on a 2.11 installation and later.

Installer changes

New windows service introduced in 2.11:

Windows services will no longer be started automatically after installation (after 2.11). 

It affects the following services:

  • Nemhandel Service
  • Monitor Service
  • Scheduler Service

New Features

FEATURE - Use IdentificationTypes in receive-services

Preparation for Link 3, remove "EdiPortal-ID" from partner and only use identifycation type and id


FEATURE - Set priority for documents sent directly to Inbox

By default documents that come in from receive site directly to Inbox don't have any priority. 

This can be helped with this table to configure specific scenarios where we want to make sure a priority is given:

FEATURE - ServiceWindow for Inbox-polling for specific dataowner

New DataownerKey IsServiceWindow can be set to true, to stop processing documents for a given dataowner. This can be used when the dataowners other systems are down for maintenance. Importent to use priorityqueue so every document passed through inbox

  • Will not require restart to stop moving documents from status inbox to Inboxqueue


FEATURE - Save empty fields in conversion table

To make sure that previous method that return a row as key value will return key for all cloumns

FEATURE - REST API Get From Outbox

Get documents from Outbox or implement Async Send using the REST interface:

FEATURE - Rest API - Better Authorization logging

Log additional information for when authentication fails. Is it caused by expired token or what is the actual cause.

FEATURE - Public API async tracking
  • Track based on guid – dont wait for id
  • Track even while Link is being updated, in which case the data is put in buffer sql and syncronized later.

Not ready to manually handle your documents? Put them ”On Hold” so they are easy to find again


Configure error actions based on what different fields contain, just like when you configure email rules. Unfortunately No GUI is available yet.

You can choose from the following actions when the rule apply

  • SetStatus
  • SetStakeholder
  • Resend
  • Recreate


FEATURE - Enable Configuration Keys in Stakeholder emails

Optional includ macro to represent a configuration key in the mail subject templates. Could e.g. be used to add a general configuration key for at Distribution called SLA, and then includ the value of this in the mail subject.

FEATURE - Cleanup Link Document_StatusTypes with new setting in tDataBackup

3 additional fields have been added to tDataBackups, to make it possible to free up additional space by keeping specific data for a shorter period:

  • DaysToKeepAdditionalFiles - Theese are often only additional log files, and recommended number of days to keep would be 90 days.
  • DaysToKeepDocumentFlowStatus - Theese are the more technical status in the status list, like "TransformToCdm Startet" etc. Often only needed for a short period. Recommend to keep 90 days.
  • DaysToKeepTransportLogIn - Before it was actually cleanup each nigt, but it would be recommended to keep for e.g. 90 days.
FEATURE - Better filter options when choosing test-cases in Test Tool

When you have a lot of test cases, this filter option will help you

Option to enable Azure AD for enabling/disabling users in Link and doing autorization.

FEATURE - AS4 - Additional Partner Identification

Additional fields for AS4 transport type to be able to override the sender/receiver partners AS4 id's.

FEATURE - AS2 improvements - Certificate overlap/fallback

When you need to update your own certificate, it can be hard to get all your partner to update your certificate at the same time. Now you can have a period with 2 valid AS2 certificates. This will work as a fallback, so in case the certificate with start date closest to todays date don't work, it will fallback to the other certificate. This will give your partner a timespan to update the certificate.
