This document highlights the most important fixes, improvements, and features, that were introduced in Webiny 5.15.0.

How To Upgrade?

Please check the Webiny 5.15.0 migration guide for the upgrade steps.


The majority of changes that were introduced in this release are related to the Amazon DynamoDB-only version of Webiny.

Amazon DynamoDB-only version of Webiny

In case you missed it, at the moment, Webiny relies on both Amazon DynamoDB and Amazon OpenSearch Service databases in order to store and retrieve data. And while this is definitely a good choice for larger projects, for smaller and mid-sized projects, we'll be introducing an Amazon DynamoDB-only version of Webiny. For now there are no official estimates when this will be available, but we can definitely say that a very large amount of work has already been done.

Page Builder#

Storage Operations (#1872)#

We extracted existing DynamoDB + Elasticsearch storage logic into @webiny/api-page-builder-so-ddb-es package. This allows us to create package that stores the data into DynamoDB only, or some other database.

We moved SearchPagesPlugin, SearchLatestPagesPlugin and SearchPublishedPages from @webiny/api-page-builder to @webiny/api-page-builder-so-ddb-es.


Common changes#
  • sort is now a list of strings and default sort is createdOn_DESC - you can check out the schema to see the fields you can sort by
Changes In Pages Schema:#
  • query listPublishedPages page argument is changed to after - pass the meta.cursor value to after to paginate
  • meta output was changed to be the same as in other apps
meta {
hasMorePages: Boolean!
totalCount: Number!
cursor: String
Changes In Menu Schema:#
  • the type PbMenu items input and output are an array of JSON objects


We extracted prerendering logic into separate file, @webiny/api-page-builder/prerendering, so it is now imported into api/code/graphql/src/index.ts file. If you do not want to use prerendering of pages, feel free to remove the referenced import statement.


Query Modifier Plugin (#1872)#

Due to changes in the way of how query building for Elasticsearch works we changed ElasticsearchQueryModifierPlugin in the @webiny/api-elasticsearch package. It is an abstract class now, so if you used it to modify the query, please change it to either PageElasticsearchQueryModifierPlugin for @webiny/api-page-builder or FileElasticsearchQueryModifierPlugin for @webiny/api-file-manager. Also, in that abstract class, method named apply was renamed to modifyQuery.

Body And Sort Modifier Plugins (#1872)#

There are new ElasticsearchBodyModifierPlugin and ElasticsearchSortModifierPlugin abstract classes, which are extended in each of the application that uses Elasticsearch. As their name suggests, they are specialized to modify either body or sort parameters of the Elasticsearch query.

For Page Builder check out PageElasticsearchBodyModifierPlugin and PageElasticsearchSortModifierPlugin classes.

For File Manager check out FileElasticsearchBodyModifierPlugin and FileElasticsearchSortModifierPlugin classes.

Headless CMS#

Reference Field - Fixed Order of Entries (#1922, @nelsonchen5)#

When consuming content via the read Headless CMS GraphQL API, the reference fields that might have been included in the GraphQL query would return entries in an incorrect order. From now on, this is no longer the case.

A special shout out to @nelsonchen5 for sorting this out! ❤️

ElasticsearchFieldPlugin Class Not Used Anymore (#1872)#

The definition of Elasticsearch field now uses CmsEntryElasticsearchFieldPlugin class instead of ElasticsearchFieldPlugin.

File Manager (#1912)#


Fixed a bug with missing where parameter in the listFiles query. Also added the tag_and_in option to where so users can search for files that contain all given tags.

Also note that types, tags, ids and search parameters in listFiles query are deprecated. Use the where parameter instead.


Webiny CLI - --help Argument Now Works as Expected (#1926, @snstanton)#

When using the Webiny CLI, the --help argument now works as expected.

Special thanks to @snstanton for taking care of this! ️️❤️
