Glex Energy 2.4.0

Release date: 14.06.21

Multiple large changes across the entire application:

  • Data Access Layer: We have created a new data access layer which allows you to control who has access to content in Glex on a more granular level. There are several levels of access which can be assigned to any content; User, Organizational Unit, Role, Tenant, Public. This means that when you create a presentation, import a Prospect or upload a document, this new content will only be visible to you, and it's up to you to share it with other users within your organization (Cross-organizational permissions will be available in a later version).
  • Editable data-sources and layers: Users can now create, update and remove data-sources and layers, as well as administrating which data belongs to which data-source and layer. After you have imported a Prospect or Application Area you will have the option to assign it to either an existing data-source (given that you have the right permissions), or create a new one.
  • Data loading: We have completely redesigned the window where you load data into Glex. In the new window you can sort data-sources based on source and type, star your favourite data-sources, choose which layers to load from each data-source (f.ex. only load Exploration wells, and skip Production and Other wells), and view meta-data about the data-sources, like description, number of objects, owner, raw-files, etc.
  • New data-sources: We have added multiple new data-sources in Norway, UK and Australia.
  • Filters: We have added several new filters, and taken the first steps to allow users to create, save and share their own filters. We have also added a filter that finds all open APA acreage with an overlapping Prospect or Discovery.
  • Presentation: The presentation UI and UX has been updated.
