  • Publication number: 20220245280
    Abstract: A method, system and computer-usable medium for adaptively assessing risk associated with an endpoint, comprising: determining a risk level corresponding to an entity associated with an endpoint; selecting a frequency and a duration of an endpoint monitoring interval; collecting user behavior to collect user behavior associated with the entity for the duration of the endpoint monitoring interval via the endpoint; processing the user behavior to generate a current risk score for the entity; comparing the current risk score of the user to historical risk scores to determine whether a risk score of a user has changed; and changing the risk score of the user to the current risk score when the risk score of the user has changed.

  • Publication number: 20220245329
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods, apparatus, systems, and computer readable storage media for interacting with one or more data objects in an online social network. A user interface includes a publisher with a custom action. The custom action is defined in accordance with custom action instructions provided by a first entity via an application programming interface (API). Such custom action instructions may declaratively or programmatically define the data object, the interaction to be performed with the data object, and other attributes associated with the custom action. A user may request to interact with the data object via selection of the custom action by a second entity. Information may be submitted through the publisher to interact with the data object to update a database system associated with the data object. A feed item may be presented for inclusion in the information feed based on the update.

  • Patent number: 11106451
    Abstract: The application pertains to the automated deployment of software packages to an enterprise's testing, staging and production environments. It does this by detecting events with respect to the enterprise's code base and, upon detection of a change in a package, identifies the application(s) that include that package. For each such application, a workflow is provided defining a pipeline of environments in which a bundle of packages that make up that application are to be installed for testing, staging or production. A software package in which an event has occurred is installed in those environments on a stepwise basis per that workflow and the application is (re)built there for testing, etc. A status of the bundle of packages that make up an application in each of the respective environments is shown in a graphical user interface.

  • Patent number: 11029818
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, method, and computer program product embodiments for unifying graphical user interface (GUI) displays across different device types. In an embodiment, a unification system may convert various GUI view appearing on, for example, a desktop device into a GUI view on a mobile device. Both devices may be accessing the same application and/or may use a cloud computing platform to access the application. The unification system may aid in reproducing GUI modifications performed on one user device onto other user devices. In this manner, the unification system may maintain a consistent look-and-feel for a user across different computing device type.

  • Patent number: 10872198
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for rearranging content within resized sub-regions of a web page. First, resizing of a first sub-region of the webpage is detected by a user dragging a slidable border of the sub-region. A span value associated with dimensions of the first resized sub-region is determined and defining minimum dimensions of the first resized sub-region are defined. A subset of the dimensions of the first resized sub-region that fit within the span value is defined based on the minimum dimensions of the resized sub-region. The dimensions of the first resized sub-region include a fixed parameter and a dynamic parameter. The contents of a second sub-region of the webpage are rearranged in response to the resizing of the first resized sub-region and displaying displayed.

  • Patent number: 10684752
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods, apparatus, systems, and computer-readable storage media for responding to actionable text patterns in a feed item. In some implementations, a computing device receives textual input for a feed item to be published in an information feed. The computing device identifies in the textual input an actionable text pattern and transmits a portion of the actionable text pattern to a server. The computing device receives, from the server, one or more names of entities. The entities may be object records stored in a database, wherein the names of the entities match the portion of the actionable text pattern transmitted to the server. The computing device receives a selection of a first of the one or more names.

  • Patent number: 10606436
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods, apparatus, systems, and computer-readable storage media for composing and batch publishing feed items in a user interface in a feed-based interaction context. In some implementations, a computing device provides a first prompt for display in a first user interface component, which is configured to display unpublished feed items. The computing device receives, at the first prompt, first feed item data for a first feed item. Responsive to a request to compose a second feed item, the computing device displays in the first user interface component a second prompt for second feed item data without publishing the first feed item. The computing device receives, at the second prompt, second feed item data for a second feed item of a first record, the first and second feed items being related to the first record.

  • Patent number: 10430765
    Abstract: Disclosed are examples of systems, apparatus, methods and computer program products for processing keyboard input to perform events in relation to calendar items using a web browser-based application or online service. A database storing data objects identifying calendar items can be maintained. Each calendar item can comprise a subject, a date, and a time range. A bounding window of a web browser comprising one or more panes can be displayed in a user interface on a display of a device. At least one of the panes can comprise visual representations of a plurality of calendar items stored in the database. Keyboard input from a user interacting with a first calendar item of the plurality of calendar items can be processed. One or more events to be performed in relation to the first calendar item can be determined based on the keyboard input. The determined events can be performed.

  • Patent number: 10379724
    Abstract: Disclosed are examples of systems, apparatus, methods and computer program products for providing a user interface customizable to define state transitions of panes in a bounding window. For example, a bounding window including one or more resizable panes is displayed in a user interface on a display device. Breakpoints situated at respective spatial positions in the bounding window are graphically represented in the user interface. Each breakpoint defines a transition of a pane from one state to another when the pane is resized to traverse the breakpoint. The spatial position of one or more of the breakpoints can be updated in accordance with a request indicating user customization of breakpoints.
