Structr 3.3: Better Security, Data Deployment, Easier Complex Queries

We are happy to release a new version of Structr today. Release 3.3 has many minor improvements and bug fixes as well as the some interesting new features of which we’ll discuss a few in this blog post.

To see yourself, just download Structr directly from https://structr.com/resources/download and test it with full functionality for 30 days free of charge.

Encrypted Strings

A small but important improvement makes storing information in Structr even more secure: With version 3.3 it is possible to store strings in encrypted form. The secret key can either be stored in a configuration file or - for even greater security - set at runtime. The new encrypted strings can be used, for example, to retrieve e-mail mailboxes.

Encrypted String Attribute

Data Export/Import

In addition, we have added a data export (“data deployment”) to the deployment (export/import). Now you can not only export Structr applications completely (and of course import/deploy them again), but also any user/domain data as a connected graph. This is very useful in the case of test data for example, but can also be used to save productive data.

Data Deployment

Improved Query Functions

Furthermore, there are improvements in data binding: The functionality of the find() query function for StructrScript and JavaScript (example below) has been greatly enhanced. Now even complex queries are possible with multiple attribute filters which can also combined by boolean expressions, sorting and pagination.


${{
    let users = $.find('Project',
        {
            $and: {
                'name1': 'structr',
                'age': $.range(30, 50)
            }
        },
        $.sort('name', true),
        $.page(1, 10)
    );

    return users;
}}

More examples and the full documentation of the advanced find() function are available in a new support article: https://support.structr.com/article/590

New License Model

Finally, we have adapted our license model to the needs of our customers. Instead of the four editions (Community, Basic, Small Business and Enterprise Edition) there is now a Core system that can be extended by functional modules. This allows our customers to individually compile the required range of functions and thus adapt their license perfectly to the needs of their organization.

We’re also offering licenses on a per-user basis, starting from 100 € per month and user. Discounts are available depending on the number of modules and users/instances.
