Rolling Out 9.1 Update 1

This is the first real test of the Auto-Update feature of SIF-less. I’ve added in the configs for 9.1 Update 1 and “in theory” it should start showing up when you launch SIF-less. *BIG NOTE* This is only going to work with SIF-less 2.2 . Prior versions do not have the Auto-Update feature. With that…


SIF-less 2.2 – Auto Update and UI Runner

This one has been a LONG time coming, peeps. Trust me on this. This version includes a couple much-needed features. The first feature is the ability for SIF-less to auto-update the configuration files via the app itself. This means that when I fix a bug in a template, or add a new feature to the…


Sitecore Campaigns – Using a Friendly Name

Working with a client, there was a question as to whether or not we could create a campaign with a querystring parameter that wasn’t a GUID. Why the client didn’t like a GUID…I have no..idea… oh yeah, it’s ugly. I was prepared to write some code to basically map the Item name or a slug…


SIF-less 2.1.2 – Validation at Execution

I was thinking to myself the other night, “Self. What happens if I bork my system after I’ve generated my SIFless-EZ script? What if I reboot and solr doesn’t come back up. What if I accidentally lock out my admin SQL account? What if Coronas don’t magically transport me to a tropical place where I’m…


SIF-less – Time for a re-brand?

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… ok no When I first conceived of SIF-less, the thought was to make Sitecore 9 installs easier. Because…they were hard. Unnecessarily hard. And..it did that for me. And I thought it was cute to give it a silly name. And then someone else wanted to…


SIF-less 2.1.1

Hey all, just pushed out a new version of SIF-less.  It was a quickie.  Updates include: Forcing HTTPS on XP0 installs. Thanks to Łukasz Skowroński for the blog post. Also, the AlllowedCorsOrigins for identify server will be working already with HTTPS. (Stack Overflow here.) The Password Recovery Url should now be HTTPS by default. The role for…


SIF-less 2 is here. Now with 100% more 9.1 support

It’s been a while since an update has come out for SIF-less. <Insert excuse about real life and work balance here> <Insert indifferent response to said excuse here> Now that THAT is out of the way, let’s talk about what’s new: Now supports 9.1  This is a biggie. It had a couple of side effects,…


SIF-less 2 Beta 3 – Now with Habitat!

Last week, Sitecore release a new version of Sitecore Habitat.  One of the goals I’ve had with SIF-less is to allow for a greater flexibility in provisioning instances of Sitecore.  While there is in fact a new version of SIF-less here, the majority of the work allow for a Habitat flavor of Sitecore 9.0.2 was…


SIF-less 2 Beta Update 2

This isn’t an insignificant one.  Here’s the good updates: Completely revamped the uninstall process. Rather than using SIF for uninstall, we’re going with plain PowerShell.  This might not be the end-game here, but this is a lot cleaner and fault tolerant.  It can also be re-run multiple times to clean up an instance, and it…


SIF-less 2 Beta – Update 1

This release has a couple new features, as well as some bug fixes.  It’s getting closer.  It also has added a couple new items to my “to-do” list. Bug Fixes No longer crashes when selecting certain topologies Fixed an error when replacing bookmarks in the EZ ps1 files New Features Changed Versions and Typologies to…
