Issue ID Title Solution
Cash Drawers    
14138 OPOS Drawer slowness investigation

Current Proxy functionality allows multiple proxies to access the same cash drawer on a POS workstation. A new option has been introduced. Now the Cash Drawer plugin (OPOSCshDrwr.DLL) will read an additional optional field from the OPOSConf.ini file, called ClaimAtStartup.
Example:
[CshDrwr1]
LDN=A798-1
ClaimTimeout=10
Actv=1
ClaimAtStartup=1

If this value is 1, the Proxy claims the cash drawer at proxy startup time, and holds it until the proxy terminates (faster response to drawer open and status requests).

If this value is 0, or the field is not present (as for current users), the Proxy claims the cash drawer at each drawer open or status request and releases it again. This allows multiple proxies to access the same cash drawer, if required. Note: You must manually enter this option and its parameter in the OPOSConf.ini file under the cash drawer section.

14282 RPS interconnection queue should be able to process more than one request at a time By default RPS module will have 10 interconnection listeners - 10, because it needs to serve back office and common services and they have 5 receiving threads by default.
If needed this number could be increased by adding and editing the following parameter in RPSRestServiceModule.ini file:

[SYSTEM]
RPSLISTENERCNT=10

The count should be a positive number, but within reason - setting it to anything higher than the sum of number of receiving threads in BackOffice and Common services is pointless and would be a waste of resources. It is recommended to keep it as 10 initially, and raise it as necessary when increasing the number of receiving threads in your system is needed.

Note: the number of receiving threads for BackOffice and Common services could be found out by examining the following setting in their INI files:

PrismBackOffice.ini
And
PrismCommon.ini
[SERVICE]
RECVTHREADCNT=5
14215 Store VS Subsidiary assignment for documents Employee store assignments are now available in Prism. Store assignments are defined on the Retail Pro side.

14139 Prism server should not allow requests that query all data from a table resource New configuration parameters can now be defined for RPSRestServiceModule.ini, PrismBackOffice.ini and PrismCommon.ini to limit the number of raw requests to a Prism server for large databases.

Translations    
11897 Need to provide translation capability for UI customizations

Beginning with this release, retailers can easily implement translations for their third-party UI customizations by making simple edits to a copy of the appropriate language-specific .json file. Now, the developer simply has to type (or copy/paste) the desired translation text next to the base (native) text and save the file to the \locale folder with -custom appended to the file name. When loading the page, Prism will check if a -custom version exists and load the -custom version instead. For example, if the file was named en-us.json, then name the file en-us-custom.json.
We recommend using the English text of the translation for the key.
See the What's New document for more information
