What's New

Packaged Solutions

  • SAML Single Sign-On Support provides customers to connect their DocuShare server to their enterprise Identify Provider. This enables users to login using their enterprise login rather than having to use/remember a separate login/password for DocuShare.
  • Auto-Provisioningwhen SAML is enabled. This is an Admin choice. If enabled, users that don’t exist on the DocuShare server will automatically be created and have basic access to the DocuShare server. This eliminates the need for the user to request an account from the Admin.
  • Forgot Password Reset is the feature that allows for the user to reset their password without the need to contact the System Admin.
  • DocuSign Add-on Connector for DocuShare updated to support the new DocuSign authentication.
  • Various Security Updates and Bug fixes

Installation Notes

Document Viewer

  • For new Document Viewer installation, PrizmDoc 13.x runs the client and the server on the same box.
  • For upgrades with Document Viewer installed, PrizmDoc will continue to run the client on the DocuShare server and the PrizmDoc 12.x on another server.
  • For upgrades without Document viewer, PrizmDoc 13.x runs the client and the server on the same box.


  • Currently, we do not support running multiple DocuShare instances on a single VM with Solr.
  • The Solr engine is started automatically after DocuShare 7.6 Installation (both Linux and Windows). However, if Linux machine is restarted, the Solr engine must be started manually before starting DocuShare.
  • Only a new net install will provide the Solr engine. Upgrade from DocuShare 7.0 IDOL Service will retain IDOL engine. Also, upgrade from DocuShare 7.5 that is still running IDOL server will retain IDOL engine.

Upgrade Notes

Currently there is no migration/upgrade path to move from IDOL to Solr search engine (KeyView/IDOL to Tika/Solr)

  • Current customers who are running on IDOL must remain on IDOL.
  • Running IDOL and Tika on the same server will cause conflict in the search functionality.
