2019.2 Features Released Directly to Production

This page describes all features introduced directly in the Production environment during the timeframe of the 2019.2 release. The functionality described in this section was not included in Preview and did not release to Production at the same time as other enhancements included in this release.

For a list of all changes made in 2019.2, see "2019.2 Release Activity Overview."

The 2019.2 release contains the following enhancements that are currently in Production:

Deactivate Unused Objects

If you have objects that are no longer used, you can now deactivate them to hide them from lists in order to prevent users from associating them with other objects.

Now, when you edit any of the objects below, you can indicate whether they should be active. Objects that are set to Active appear in drop-down menus and type-ahead fields and can be attached to other objects. Objects not set to Active are not visible in drop-down menus and type-ahead fields to attach to other objects.

  • Approval Processes
  • Companies
  • Custom Forms
  • Milestone Paths
  • Portfolios
  • Programs
  • Templates

Anything you deactivate that is currently used continues to function as it always has, and is not removed or blocked.

IMPORTANT When creating these objects via the Workfront API version 10 and earlier, the default value for the "isActive" parameter is true. This is a new field and is not available for you to edit prior to version 11 of the API. Beginning with version 11 you must set the "isActive" parameter to "true" or else the default for creating new objects will be "false". However, a value of "false" does not affect API availability, and anything that you create via the API can also be used via the API regardless of the "isActive" setting. For example, if you create a Company via the API, you can also attach the Company to a Project via the API whether the "isActive" parameter is set to "true" or "false."
