Since Razuna is being used more and more by other vendors, developers and integrators we are constantly being asked how to integrate certain parts of Razuna within an application. With the upcoming Razuna 1.5.5 release we now have an easy way that makes it a snap to integrate our uploader tool, a complete folder or search results.
A inclusion, of say the search results in your application can be done with a dedicated URL calling the custom view and in the case of the search with the same parameters that you use for the Razuna API. That’s it, you don’t need to learn anything new, all can be done with your API Key and a couple of parameters. As a result you get the search results back in the same user interface as within Razuna as shown below.
The folder view alike can be brought in within your application with the same method. Additionally, you can pass the access permissions how the parts of Razuna should be shown, meaning if the user has read, read/write or full access to the files. For the folder view you can even send a list of fileid’s along and only those files will be shown in the foder view (despite having other files within the same folder). This is particularly useful for showing only certain files, e.g. images, that belong to a product or category.
As mentioned, we have already seen a wide adoption of this new feature with our partners and are now making this feature a integral part of the upcoming Razuna 1.5.5 release.
Razuna 1.5.5 is the most anticipated release bringing many new features like the new Plugin-System, along with the workflow engine, new features for custom fields, enhancements in many parts and overall over 200 major changes. Razuna is currently being deployed by over 2000 customers and is being integrated by many leading Software companies worldwide. The final release of Razuna 1.5.5 is being expected in the coming 8 weeks, with a first Release Candidate in the next 4 weeks.
