User Governance 12.0.1

Release: February, 2019

Fixed item

  • The special character ampersand (&) is now supported for Group Login names in the SAP configuration for User Governance.

User Governance 12.0

Release: August, 2018

New features and improvements

  • To improve performance on the Manage Users page, roles have been removed from the page itself and added to the user's Details screen (accessed from the Edit User option).
  • Added a Reports Configuration page to Foundation Settings. On this page, users can enable workflow reporting and configure workflow reporting for scheduled syncing.
  • In support of the GDPR, users can now exercise their right to be forgotten against their Winshuttle account.
  • The Run Not Posted Foundation Settings Client Feature has been updated to Run Only Unprocessed, reflecting the equivalent setting in Studio.
  • Provided locking mechanism for form tasks. 
  • Foundation-defined SAP servers now support Siteminder.
  • Due to Microsoft best practices where the application pool identity should not be in the Farm Administrators group, users can no longer update the database connection string and instructions on necessary PowerShell commands are provided. Read more.

Known issues

  • The owner of AutoRun jobs is not able to delete his or her jobs; only the user with the CAA role is able to delete those jobs.

    Select [ConfigurationKey],[Value]/ From [myUserGovernanceDatabaseName].[dbo].[FarmConfiguration]/ Where ConfigurationKey = 'VERSIONNUMBER'.
