Support was added for custom URL base paths. This allows services Mayan EDMS as a sub URL service. The new setting controlling this feature is named COMMON_URL_BASE_PATH.


Django was updated to version 2.2.12.

Two Django settings were exposed using the setting system. These are: SESSION_COOKIE_NAME and SESSION_ENGINE. SESSION_COOKIE_NAME is relevant when serving multiple installations of Mayan EDMS under the same domain and SESSION_ENGINE is useful to improve performance in large installations.


The checkdependencies command was updated to mark missing production dependencies with a symbol and an ANSI coloration. This makes it easy to spot critical dependencies that may be missing and causing artifacts.

The --csv option was added to the checkdependencies command to output the result as comma delimited values.

Explanation of changes:

COMMON_URL_BASE_PATH allows hosting Mayan as a sub URL app. Instead of just, you can now use

SESSION_COOKIE_NAME allows hosting two of more Mayan installations on the same domain and allows signing into all at the same time. You need to set a different value for SESSION_COOKIE_NAME for each instance of Mayan.

SESSION_ENGINE by default all user sessions are tracked by the database. For each request Django (an Mayan) will do a database query to see if the user is logged in or not. To avoid this query you can now use a different session backend as recommended by Django here -> ... /sessions/

The checkdependencies will now highlight a missing production dependency for easy visual identification of a potential problem with your installation. Since this changes the output of the command a little bit, in case you are using the output of this command in automation or batch files, we also added a --csv option to output the result in the very easy to parse CSV.
