SugarCRM Mobile SDK 6.5.0

Released on April 30th, 2019

Enhancements and Changes

The following features and changes have been introduced in this version of the Mobile SDK:

Core Functionality

  • The core corresponds to the production version of SugarCRM Mobile See the Android or iOS release notes for SugarCRM Mobile 6.5.0 for details.

Other Notable Changes

  • Global search on SugarCRM Mobile now uses Sugar's Elasticsearch engine via the /rest/v10/globalsearch API endpoint. This means that marking individual fields as searchable and weighting them in Studio according to their search priority also affects global search in the app.
  • Handlebars.js has been upgraded from version 4.0.11 to version 4.0.13.
  • Cordova CLI has been upgraded from version 7.1.0 to version 8.1.2.


Use the following steps to upgrade a custom app from SDK version to version

  1. Modify package.json in your custom app folder to specify "" for the sdkVersion property.
  2. Re-create native projects by running ./sdk init-native.
  3. Restart the debug server and rebuild the app.
