Highlights of the 2023 Q3 release include:


  • Webservice Index Page
  • Generic Browse
  • Internet Printing Security


  • Year/Period Master


  • Account Summary
  • Company Master

Deprecated features

  • 32-bit XL is deprecated. We recommend the use of 64-bit XL.
  • The Message Board feature in Administration is deprecated. It will be removed in a future release.

General Fixes/Updates

  • It is now possible to change a user’s password, when the user code contains a space.
  • Attachments can now be viewed from the Generic Browse Content Provider.
  • The private web service ‘clientauthenticate’ is no longer included in the public web service documentation.
  • An issue has been resolved where the Generic Browse Master code could not be selected when configuring a new or modifying an existing Generic Browse on a menu content provider.
  • An issue has been resolved where a session would sometimes consume licences for products which were not used.
  • A serious error no longer occurs when maintaining Asset category masters with no ‘Category element value’ or ‘Cost centre value’.
  • Forced Prompt(s) in the selector master for Link Table Maintenance now work correctly. This has been corrected for both Finance and Billing.
  • It is now possible to include the ‘@’ character in External references in documents within Finance. This means an error will no longer be generated when posting documents from Billing or Invoice Matching that contain an ‘@’ character in a reference field.
  • A warning message in Matching now appears if the capability setting of matching date outside the period range is set to warning.
  • Documents posted using APIs, where the document currency values have more decimal places than the currency master are now posted correctly and can now be edited on the intray.
  • Emails sent as part of the Pay/Collect process, where an email template master is not used, now includes the subject and text entered at run time by the user on all emails sent and not just the first email.
  • On the IBM i platform the issue which restricted the ability to write to or retrieve data from the database repository has now been resolved, the repository objects (as used by attachments) are no longer corrupted.
  • A rounding issue has been resolved when calculating the Home/Dual values, this issue occurred when using reversing tax and workflow to post books on approval.
  • You can now enter configuration options in the Console without the com.coda prefix. This now enables IBAN verification to work correctly in the Dutch Local product NL Common.
  • The WebSphere installation scripts have been updated to accurately implement the installation requirements. The previous WebSphere scripts could result in unpredictable behaviour and failures due to the configuration not satisfying Session Management requirements.
  • A reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the web user interface has been fixed.
  • Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability has been resolved when viewing attachments. HTML attachments are now downloaded rather than being displayed in a new browser tab.
  • XML External Entity Injection (XXE) has been resolved. XML interpreter now cannot leak sensitive server side data back to the attacker from Request Body on /coda/finance/elementauthorisationrules/uploadrules page.
