Why do Actions appear twice with slightly different names?
Cache improves performance by storing copies of files that can be accessed quickly, and each Typefi plug-in has a unique cache. Sometimes, a plug-in’s cache system fails to delete the previous version of a plug-in, causing actions to appear twice in Typefi Server→Actions.
Specifically, when updating a Workflow plug-in, the process involves downloading an installation folder from the Typefi FTP that includes a
typefi-actions folder with subfolders for each action. If the updated actions feature new names or a new user interface (UI), the updated UI in your Typefi Server may display both the previous and latest versions of the actions with slightly different names.
For example, in version 12 (and later) of the XSL plug-in, the Apply XSL Stylesheet(s) Action was renamed to Apply XSL transform. When updating the action, the old and newer versions of the action are visible in Typefi Server. This means that the cache in the
typefi-actions folder did not clear the previous installation files of Apply XSL Stylesheet(s) when upgrading to the latest version named Apply XSL transform.
Clear your cache from previous installations to ensure that you have the most up-to-date versions of a plug-in installed. You can find detailed instructions on how to clear your cache in the Troubleshooting section of the help article, Install Workflow Plug-ins and Actions.
