What's New in Version December 2016

Wednesday, November 30, 2016 by Karin Huber


This month we have worked closely with some of our customers who plan to switch to the HTML5 client to make sure that all their time cockpit customizations also work in the HTML5 client. For that, we have made lots of improvements and bug fixes. Additionally, we now allow to authenticate with time cockpit by using the hybrid flow of OpenID Connect.

We have put all effort in the new HTML5 client so there is no new Full Client available this month.

Time Cockpit OpenId Connection Hybrid Flow

Time cockpit has been using OpenID Connect based on IdentityServer for more than two years (see also original announcement). Until recently, all our own client applications and client applications that our customers wrote (example) used the implicit flow. A few weeks ago, a customer approached us who wanted to use hybrid flow. This month, we made the necessary changes to time cockpit to support this authentication scenario.

Learn how you can use OpenID Connect hybrid flow for time cockpit in your own applications (e.g. custom mobile app, custom website with ASP.NET MVC, interface programming, etc.).
