Patch Release

  • We improved the PDF export layout for pages containing Custom User List macros with textarea profile fields.
  • When using a custom language pack to translate profile field and category names, the system default language is now used as a fallback when no translation exists for a user's language.
  • Until now, the OrgCharts did not show users when the capitalization of the user profile field was incorrect (different from the actual user name). This has been fixed to use a case-insensitive lookup. Superior and subordinate users are now displayed even if "JaneDoe" is entered as "janedoe".


Macro improvements, bugfixes, technical improvements


  • The field type "Cascade Select" supports only CSV file format now, we dropped support for specific Excel files due to technical reasons.

Hotfix release



Patch release


  • When importing profile data from XML, you can now map multiple profile fields to the same XML attribute.

New features / improvements:

  • The profile notice for Linchpin Assistant and Linchpin Onboarding now supports additional field types: "Country", "Language" and "Textarea".
  • You can configure the Linchpin Assistant profile notice to be shown even if all profile fields are already filled. This enables the use case "Is your profile still up to date?" in addition to the existing use case "Please complete your profile".


Hotfix Version: backsync to custom directory fixed

If there is a custom user directory added as Linchpin User Profile data source it is now always used as target for the data backsync feature. We fixed an issue where this directory has been ignored in some cases.


Extended profile field type support for Linchpin Onboarding & Assistant

You can now add profile fields of the type "phone" to the user profile fields modules in Linchpin Onboarding and Linchpin Assistant (see Linchpin Manager - Release 1.2). Until now only the field types "text", "select" and "multiselect" were supported. Thus a further step towards better maintained and high-quality user data is possible (smile)

In addition, we have improved the output of macros for anonymous users. Until now, only general messages and messages that were not comprehensible to the user were displayed.

"english", "englisch", "inglés", "englanti" or "anglais", as we are supporting this feature in English, German, Spanish, Finnish and French).

Technical Information

In Linchpin User Profiles 2.10 we improved the search backend and switched completely to a CQL based search. To benefit from this immediately after the upgrade to 2.10 it is necessary to rebuild the index completely. You can trigger this by yourself, please consider that this may take some time.
Alternatively you can skip that since the index will progressively update itself. Then the fully featured Linchpin User Profiles search will improve progressively as well.
