New subscription model All users This is the first release of Oracle Content and Experience to use Oracle’s Universal Credit Model (UCM).

Release 18.1.5 (Traditional Cloud Account) — March 2018

Feature Role Description
Sites: Content templates Sites users and admins Content templates can now be used to share content models, which includes content layouts, content items, and digital assets that are needed to support a content model (such as sample content).

Using a content template allows enterprise users to start creating editorial content using content types and layouts from the template. They can publish this content to sites or to other available channels.

You create a content template from an existing site. It can then be shared with other users. Content templates should be created from sites with published content items and digital assets.

Note that content types are not created when a site template is imported from a package with content. They are created when a site is created from the content template. Therefore, content types are not owned by the user who imports the site template. Instead, content types are owned by the user who creates a first site from that template. That user can then share the template with other users as needed.

Sites: Enhanced sites publishing performance Sites users Site activation can be a time-consuming process but a new feature delivers site files directly from a dynamic site folder.
Sites: Change to content list component Sites users The Content List component has been improved with an additional query field, allowing you to use enhanced filter information. For example, search operators such as eq (equals) and le (less than or equal) can be used to filter items in a content list.
Desktop app upload performance All users Uploading of content on stable networks is now faster. You can now upload files larger than 5GB, which was the previous limitation.
Desktop app support change All users Mac OS X 10.10 ("Yosemite") and earlier versions of the operating system are no longer supported.
Developer Cloud Service integration Developers You can now develop templates and themes for Content and Experience Cloud in Developer Cloud Service.
  • Starting at Developer Cloud Service, you can create a template, edit the theme, and then export the template to be imported into Content and Experience Cloud.
  • Starting at Content and Experience Cloud, you can create a template, export the template, and then import the template into Developer Cloud Service to edit the theme.

A cross-platform command-line utility, cec, provides integrated help for running the commands, with examples. The local test harness supports running and testing of all types of Content and Experience Cloud components and templates, including content templates.

See Develop for Content and Experience Cloud with Developer Cloud Service in Integrating and Extending Oracle Content and Experience, and Develop Templates with Developer Cloud Service in Building Sites with Oracle Content and Experience.
