Post-Upgrade Steps

Enable the CSRF Safe Mode for local ajaxProxy requests

WARNING: Enabling the "ADF CSRF Safe Mode" without installing ADF 2.5 compatible Apps or without updating all custom ajaxProxy local requests will greatly limit functionality!

Register ADF Scripts as CommonSpot Resources

  • Register the ADF Script Resources with CommonSpot (for ADF 2.0 and above only!)
IMPORTANT: The ADF thirdParty scripts libraries will not function when using ADF.scripts_2_0 loadScripts calls unless they are registered as Resources in CommonSpot 10.x. 

Update Site Level Override Components

  • Any site level override ADF Lib components located in the "_cs_apps/lib/" folder will need to be renamed and the component "extends" updated to point to the latest version of the matching ADF Lib components.
Example: "_cs_apps/lib/scripts_1_1.cfc" needs to become "scripts_2_0.cfc" and the extends value in the component tag will need to point to "ADF.lib.scripts.scripts_2_0"

Update Custom App Lib Component References

  • Update any ADF Lib component references in your custom ADF Apps to the latest versions of the matching ADF 2.0 Lib components in the App's appBeanConfig.cfm file (in the root of the App directory).
Example: "addConstructorDependency(appBeanName, "scripts_1_2", "scripts"); " needs to become "addConstructorDependency(appBeanName, "scripts_2_0", "scripts");"
