A message queue and a native key-value store along with a special focus on security are our gift for this coreBOS third birthday, but, not satisfied with that we throw in a long list of enhancements and fixes and start this blog series.

Happy birthday coreBOS!!


We standardize the PBXManager module and correctly define fields in order to enable searching on list view and linking to other records.


  • Create Entity Enhancements: permit creating same entity as default duplicate: dangerous, possible infinite loop
  • More flexible picklist options
  • Task enhancement: after_retrieve task event so we can easily add functionality to our task edit screens
