New Features

AuditSystem property for not performing backward multiplicity checks for links

Skipping this checking for blueprint links will dramatically improve the audit performance and has been found not that useful information compared to other audit results.

This feature will be deprecated totally in later versions, but can be used still, if really wanted by changing the default value of the new system property.

Data Content PlannerDynamic form views based on Field setup

Field Setups defined for different tables can now be used to dynamically create a form view that only includes the selected fields and their conditions as instructions.

These views are included in the Data Content Planner as another view when opening the Field plan for a selected records and trying to update attribute level information. This addition will bring extra focus and clarity to attributes included in the field setup that is also included in the audit.

Using these Dynamic form views requires committing an Add-on that enables the form view creation.
