There are no packages required for Conga Revenue Lifecycle Platform.
The following features are new to Conga Revenue Lifecycle Platform in this release.
The Dependent Picklist allows the creation of a relationship between two picklist fields on an object, where the selected value in the controlling picklist determines the available values in the dependent picklist. This feature is particularly useful when you want to limit the available choices in a dependent picklist based on the value selected in a controlling picklist. You define a mapping between the values in the controlling field and the corresponding values that should be available in the dependent field. Each value in the controlling field can have its own set of dependent values. For more information, see Creating and Managing Dependent Picklist.
Introduced a Record Type (transaction type) field to group records within a specific object. It is a label that distinguishes one transaction from another. For more information, see Managing Record Type.
All Object Mappings
The All Object Mappings feature simplifies the process of mapping source objects to target objects. It provides a comprehensive view of imported external objects and enables direct source-to-target mapping on a single screen. If a required target object is missing, you can create it seamlessly. It also automatically creates a default set of fields for target objects and facilitates precise source-to-target field mapping. For more information, see Working with All Object Mappings.
The Formula Fields feature provides a convenient solution for transforming source formula expressions into target formula expressions that are compatible with the Conga Platform. For more information, see Creating Formula Fields.
You can now create a guest user by clicking the new Add Guest button on the user listing screen. You can also use the Guest User endpoints available under the User Management APIs. For more information, see Adding and Activating Users.
You can now see information about all the current versions of applications that are available within the platform application. For more information, see Accessing Apps.
You can now search and extract text or data from PDF, DOCX, or RTF documents.

Decimal Prefix Configuration for the Currency
The administrator can now configure the currency decimal places. To do this, a new field Scale is added to the Currency object to define the decimal prefix for the specific currency.
Error Message for Invalid Records
Previously, when you used the following User Management APIs to perform bulk delete operations, you could only get deleted record details in the response. With this release, the APIs also provide error messages for invalid records in the response.
- Object Permission:
- Permission Groups:
- User Admin:
- Role Admin:
Validation Message for Existing User
POST /api/user-management/v1/users/bulk API returns the User ID in the validation error for the existing users.
Support for Inverse and Indirect Currency Rate Conversion
When there are no direct currency rate conversions, you can now calculate the inverse and indirect currency rate conversions using the Conversion Management APIs. For example, you have the USD to INR and INR to JPY conversion rates in your database.
Inverse Conversion: If INR to USD conversion is not available, you can calculate the INR to USD currency rate conversion.
Indirect Conversion: If USD to JPY and JPY to USD conversion is not available, you can calculate USD to JPY and JPY to USD currency rate conversion. Only one level of indirect currency rate conversion is supported.
