Global Record Manager Role
This new role replaces the previous Records Manager role and gives access to records regardless of the Record Filters. Upon upgrade, all users with Record Manager roles will be converted to Global Record Manager. The Record Manager role going forward will be subject to Record Filters.
Record Filters allow records to be filtered by a specific set of rules. These filters only apply to Users and Record Managers (not Global Record Managers). They apply to all aspects of the system such as Managing Records, Disposition tasks, and Reports.
Record Filters are assigned to Record Classes, and secure records according to all the filters for a Record Classes. Filters work in an inclusive manner, meaning that once a Record Class has been assigned at least one filter, only members of that Record Filter will have access to those records. Users will continue to be bound by the permissions given to them for a specific Record Class.
Learn more about Record Filters.
The disposition inbox has been relocated to a navigation menu under the Dispose on the main menu. The inbox no longer allows users with the Record Manager role to see items in the inbox that have an approval group they are not a member of.
The Expired Records area shows all records that have expired or are nearing expiration.
A new feature to reject records during disposition has been created. When a record is rejected, it will move to an area that can be accessed via the Rejected Records navigation under Dispose. These records cannot be approved for disposition until they are reinstated.
Learn more about Rejected Records.
Physical records that have been approved for disposition will show up under Physical Confirmation and await to be completed. The purpose of this area is to verify that the records have been destroyed since that action cannot be taken automatically. These verifications previously were displayed in the Inbox.
The Exceptions area shows exceptions that may have happened during the disposition process, such as not being able to remove content from a repository during the Dispose and Delete action. These actions previously were displayed in the Inbox.
Custom Inbox Columns
Previously custom columns could only be added to the Inbox globally. These can now be added per user under Settings → My Preferences. Custom columns can then be added and removed from a view in any of the disposition areas.
Each version of the Server documentation is now viewable within this site. The default will be the latest version (in this case 5.0). To change the version select the dropdown in the upper right of this page.
- Many of the stored procedures have been removed from SQL Server. These have been replaced in the lifecycle processing service.
- Option to use Azure Queues to improve the performance and reliability of the service.
The installer for all components can be found on the Gimmal software download site.
The core service can only be upgraded from version 4.7. Any previously supported version can be upgraded to 4.7.
It is recommended to stop all connectors before upgrading the core service.
Upgrade the connectors after you have upgraded the core service, and before starting the connectors after they have been stopped for the core service upgrade.
The connectors are no longer part of the core installer, and each has a separate ISO to download and install.

The following issues have been resolved in this release.
|38032||SharePoint Online Connector||Destruction Certificate and Archive records not created for SharePoint records||20123|
The following issues are known to exist at this time.
|52054||Core||When a record is ready for manual transfer in Physical Confirmation, if the user clicks the Complete button at the top of the screen, the user is not given the option to enter an updated URL.||Use the drop-down menu next to each record in the Physical Confirmation view and click Complete.|
|51914||Core||Case base record classes with Record Declaration set to Never still allows users to choose the Declare Record option for records.||Do not declare the individual records of a case, declare the case itself.|
|51885||Core||When creating a Legal Hold and no legal cases are available if a user clicks Confirm an error is presented in the web browser's developer console.||No workaround necessary.|
|51790||Core||Assigned Record Filters for a user do not show assignments via Group Membership in the Secure page.||View the individual user accounts to see assigned Record Filters.|
|51613||Documentum Connector||The rest connector does not use paging for the incremental job. Page size is sent as a param, but it is not used. This can cause out of memory errors when there are many changes returned from the changelog query.||A full crawl does use paging and will resolve the problem.|
|51558||Box Connector||When completing the Records Management Configuration for the Box Connector, clicking Save more than once can result in multiple configuration entries in the Box Connector database.||Leave the page and coming back will load the form with saved data, and the page will update the existing entry as expected.|
|51694||SharePoint Server Connector||In rare occurrences, a new record that falls under an existing legal hold might not get locked.||Run Force Processing of All Items resolves the issue.|
|51338||Core||In rare occurrences, deleting a record class generates an error in the web browser's developer console.||No workaround necessary, record class is still deleted.|
|49042||Reports||Bar Graph data in the Approaching Phase Expiration report can take up multiple pages when there are many items in the report.||None.|
