You can now set User permissions for Language Variants, integrate Microsoft Dynamics 365 in the backoffice, and do it all secured by 2-factor authentication available for all Umbraco Cloud and Heartcore users. And that’s just some of the exciting news we dive into - let’s go 🚀


2-Factor Authentication for Umbraco Cloud

You can now make your Umbraco Cloud account even more secure by enabling 2-factor authentication (2FA). This means you will be prompted for a 2FA authentication code in addition to the standard username and password.

You have 3 different authentication options to choose from which controls where you obtain your authentication code. It can be sent to your email, via SMS to your phone, or you can use an authentication app such as Google Authenticator, Authy or similar. 

All you have to do to enable 2FA for Umbraco Cloud is to go to your Profile, click Edit Profile and choose the 2FA option. As your Umbraco profile is used to log in to the backoffice for your projects, these are all now protected with 2FA both existing and new 🔐

See the 2-factor authentication on Umbraco Cloud documentation for details.

New release: Integrate Dynamics 365 with Umbraco CMS

If you are using Microsoft Dynamics 365, and Marketing Forms in particular, there’s now a new way to integrate this into your Umbraco site. This new integration provides a Marketing Forms picker for the backoffice and rendering component to help render the forms on your site.

Dynamics Form Picker Backoffice

You can read more about the integration, how to install it, and more in the release blog post. It’s available for Umbraco 8.4+ (including Umbraco 9 and 10). The package is open-source and the source code can be found on GitHub where you are more than welcome to submit PRs or raise issues.

You can now set User permissions for Language Variants, edit shared properties across languages, and enjoy the new read-only mode that lets you copy text and items (e.g. from Content Pickers and Block Lists).

Umbraco Forms 8.13.2, 9.5.2 and 10.1.2

Patch updates for Umbraco Forms were released on Tuesday 9th September, resolving a few minor bugs, as well as one more critical one that impacted the form picker property editor for users of the latest CMS version 10.2. These updates will be applied to Cloud sites next week.

Released on September 13, 2022

Umbraco 7.15.9

When we released Umbraco 7.15.8 a few weeks ago we, unfortunately, made a mistake. The intention was to loosen up NuGet restrictions so people could update the NewtonSoft.Json dependency to version 13. While we did so for the UmbracoCms main package, we missed out on loosening that restriction on the UmbracoCms.Core package. This has now been fixed in version 7.15.9.
