Brightspot Releases

v4.2.48 release

v4.2.48 is an official, cumulative release of all of its previous release candidates. See below for a breakdown of what each release candidate included. When upgrading to this version, your implementation of Brightspot receives all bug fixes, improvements, and new features detailed in this topic.

v4.2.48 had six bug fixes.

Significant defects addressed

  • Corrected an issue causing display of the SAML tab in a user's profile.
  • Corrected an issue preventing display of the add_circle_outline control at the end of an embedded record list.
  • Corrected an issue preventing display of archived dashboards in the Dashboards widget.
  • Corrected an issue preventing images from exiting the draft state after uploading those images into a gallery enhancement in the rich-text editor and then publishing the parent asset. For example, an editor starts a new article and adds a gallery enhancement in the rich-text editor. The editor then bulk uploads images into the gallery and publishes the asset. The bulk-uploaded images never appeared as published.
  • Corrected an issue causing extraneous resolution of references when the referred object is invisible.
  • Corrected an issue in which the replication server stopped sending ping requests.

The following release candidates are also part of this release.


v4.2.48-rc.2024.1.8 had two bug fixes.

Significant defects addressed

  • Corrected an issue causing text marked as deleted in tracked changes to be deleted without explicitly accepting the change.
  • Corrected an issue causing inconsistent and incorrect behavior when attempting to accept a change that deleted a paragraph.


v4.2.48-rc.2023.12.13 had nine bug fixes and one improvement.

Significant improvement

  • If an error occurs when uploading a media file (image, video, audio), Brightspot displays diagnostic messages.

Significant defects addressed

  • Corrected an issue causing words to be flagged as spelling errors when part of the word was typed as a tracked change.
  • Corrected an issue preventing operational restriction of the Solr facet limit.
  • Corrected an issue for which inserting an @-mention of an editor in the Conversation widget incorrectly added the widget's placeholder text.
  • Corrected an issue in which spell checking caused a reduction in performance.
  • Corrected an issue preventing spell checking on Macs with the Apple Silicon chip.
  • Corrected an issue causing logins to X (Twitter) from Brightspot to expire after approximately two hours.
  • Corrected an issue causing drafts of vanity redirects to behave as if they were live. For example, an editor creates a new vanity redirect from Asset A to Asset B. Even though the redirect was in draft status, Brightspot activated the redirect.
  • Corrected an issue preventing saving updates to objects created with the method Copyable#copy.
  • Corrected an issue throwing a NullPointerException when replying to a post in an asset's conversation.


v4.2.48-rc.2023.10.31 had four bug fixes.

Significant defects addressed

  • Corrected an issue preventing scheduled assets from being published when the scheduled date arrives.
  • Corrected an issue that prevented correct initialization of values in the content edit form, such as when changing a list from advanced to dynamic.
  • Corrected an issue causing the ingestion of Google Analytics 4 to fail.
  • Corrected an issue throwing a NullPointerException error when attempting to log in.


v4.2.48-rc.2023.9.28 had three bug fixes and two improvements.

Significant defects addressed

  • Corrected an issue preventing the Add Shared control from working as expected.
  • Corrected an issue that displayed the tab selector more_horiz in the content edit form when only one tab was available. (When only one tab is present in a form, the tab selector should not appear.)
  • Corrected an issue exposing an XSS vulnerability for text fields.

Significant improvements

  • Deployed compatibility with Twitter API v2.
  • Greatly improved performance of notification deliveries. See "Breaking changes," below.

Breaking changes

  • A reindex of all ToolSubscriber types (e.g., ToolUser) is necessary in order for the Publish, Workflow, and Translation notifications to continue to be delivered to those subscribers. (Active users will not experience an interruption because they are resaved automatically during their session.)


v4.2.48-rc.202308 had one bug fix and two improvements.

Significant defect addressed

  • Corrected an issue that prevented editors from assigning to a role any content forms having a site-specific scope.

    • Bulk actions (edit and archive).
    • Saves triggered by API requests, such as via GraphQL CMA and REST CMA.
    • Saves done via impersonation.
  • Added README documentation to the OneLogin authentication module.
