Cerb (8.2.7) is a maintenance update released on January 3, 2018. It includes 10 minor features and fixes from community feedback covering the 8.2 update. You can follow these instructions to upgrade.

  • [API/Records] Fixed an issue with the records API (and bot record actions) where some custom field types couldn’t be unset.

  • [Bots/Interactions] Fixed an issue with conversational bots where messages from multiple behaviors on the same interaction could return in a different order than intended.

  • [Bots/Interactions] Fixed an issue with conversational bots where the ‘Behavior has parent’ placeholder wasn’t being set properly when returning from deeply nested behaviors.

  • [Bots/Behaviors] Fixed an issue when editing bot behaviors. If two outcome or action editors were opened at the same time, their forms could interfere with each other.

  • [Bots/Interactions] Fixed an issue with conversation bots in portals. When using the ‘Switch behavior’ action, input variables didn’t use the code editor until the action was saved.

  • [Bots/Interactions] Conversational bot interactions can now provide a default value for the ‘Prompt with text input’ action.

  • [Bots/Interactions] Conversational bot interactions using the ‘Prompt with text input’ action can now enable multiple line input.

  • [Groups/Responsibilities] Fixed an issue where adding or removing group members from the profile page could unintentionally reset bucket responsibility settings for all members.

  • [Profiles/Time Tracking] Fixed an issue where viewing the profile of an invalid time tracking entry disabled an error.

  • [Installer] Fixed an issue with the servercheck.php script that prevented it from working when mbstring wasn’t installed.
