Bug fixes :

  • when modifying a password, the information message about the length of the password was wrong.
  • the wording regarding the referent of a container was incorrect
  • creating an output transaction from the detail of a sample did not work
  • Resetting the sample search form was incomplete.
  • multi-value metadata entry was not working. The management mechanism was taken over
  • deletion of samples could result in unclear messages or messages that do not reflect the problems encountered
  • when searching for samples, in some cases, the list returned could be too large and saturate the browser
  • the creation of events by batch of samples was not possible as the list of event types was not available
  • in the sample list, the “date-time” fields are now displayed on a single line, without carriage return.
  • in the protocols, it was not possible to delete the uploaded document
  • correction of installation and database backup scripts

What’s new

Containers :

  • it is possible to define a maximum number of available slots. The list of containers allows you to view the number of available locations.
  • the display of the content object grid allows to view all content objects, not only the last one.
  • the starting point for the number of rows and columns can now be positioned to the right (only to the left in previous versions)
  • in the list of containers, hovering over the identifier with the mouse displays the grid of contained objects
  • it is now possible to delete a batch of containers


  • it is now possible to add a description to a sample type
  •  The list of sample types can be exported in CSV.
  • when the status “destroyed” is set on an object, an exit movement is automatically generated
  • the call to the https://collec.local/index.php?module=sampleDetail&uid=928 function allows to retrieve the details of a sample in JSON format, without prior identification, if the collection has been defined as public (prefiguration of web services)
  • in the list of samples, hovering with the mouse over the identifier displays a summary of the sample
  • in the details of a sample, the list of secondary identifiers is displayed, without having to position oneself in the ad-hoc tab to view them
  • when creating a derived sample, the business identifier is duplicated
  • in the list of samples, each column can be subject to a dedicated automatic filter
  • the different possibilities of searching for a sample are now organized in thematic tabs
  • it is possible to carry out a spatial search of the samples, by drawing a rectangle on a map
  • on the home page, the number of samples per collection and the date of last modification is displayed. The list is limited to collections for which users have management rights.
  • the list of samples is supplemented by a map showing their location
  • it is possible to attach a sample to a sampling campaign. This can be associated with one or more regulations, and it is possible to attach additional documents to it
  • it is now possible to search for samples by metadata without first selecting the sample type


  • an object can be trashed (functionality provided for automatic exchanges)
  • the precision of the location of an object can be defined from a table
  • objects are now equipped with a Postgis field, facilitating spatial search or visualization with third party tools such as QGIS
  • The date of the last change to an object is recorded
  • addition of a field of type UUID, to facilitate exchanges
  • From the lists of samples or containers, it is now possible to generate the input or output movements for the selected objects

Imports/Exports/Downloads :

  • the result of the imports (UIDs generated, number of rows processed) is now stored in the log table
  • it is possible to import multi-valued data into the individual metadata fields (md_)
  • on an experimental basis, addition of a module to export part of the database in JSON format. Importing such a file in another instance allows to reconstruct the records concerned.
  • the mime types of the downloadable files are now modifiable or extensible


  • administrators can now directly consult the log table
  • a module for writing and executing SQL selection queries is available (required right: param)
  • for a collection, it is possible to define whether incoming or outgoing flows are allowed. Similarly, a collection can be defined as public: all samples could be viewed without prior identification. This is a feature prefiguring web services.
  • the display windows for containers and samples have been redesigned to make them easier to understand
  • it is possible to assign a laboratory number to a borrower
  • sorting in tables is now case- and accent-independent
  • the database structure can be viewed from the interface
  • the software now supports Shibboleth identification (HEADER mode)
  • when creating label templates, it is now possible to save changes and stay on the current page, to facilitate fine-tuning (displaying the label in another browser, for example)
  • the website https://wwww.collec-science.org has been updated
  • the comments in the database have been switched to English
  • for users identified from the local database, their account is blocked after three logins without changing the password. The status of their account is now displayed.
