Change Log for 6.3.4
|UPDATE: A ‘Close window’ icon has been added to the ‘Identical entries’/’Similar entries’ and ‘URL Lookup” popup windows.
|FEATURE: A new context_ipaddr option has been added to the per brand liger configuration to allow a default policy when the Client Filter does not have a matching Client in the Client Manager.
|FIXED: Deleting an Account using the API did not delete the Client Filter Groups.
|FEATURE: The IWF NPI List is now downloaded and purename.shed from update.netsweeper.com.
|FEATURE: The dnsdist load balancer will now send a heartbeat of ‘dnsdist.heartbeat.netsweeper.com’ to the PDNS-Recursor service. The PDNS-Recursor service no longer filters the heartbeat messages, so either ‘dnsdist.heartbeat.netsweeper.com’ or ‘a.root-servers.net’ will be sent to the Policy Service for processing. In the event of Policy Service failure, the dnsdist load balancer will fail on the PDNS-Recursor service.
|FEATURE: The IWF NPI List has been added to the Routes Advertising Service.
|FIXED: The warning message, in the Global Deny Page, when switching to the Rich Text editor has been removed.
|FIXED: Summary Reports will now truncate the field you group by up to 20 characters in length if you have the table output presentation. However, we do not truncate for detailed output and will not truncate other fields added to the Summary Report.
|FIXED: The Simple Group Manager List additions were not getting logged in WebAdmin Logs.
|UPDATE: A 15-minute WebDB cache is now enabled by default.
|FIXED: When the SNMP poller was disabled in the WebAdmin, the monitoring graphs and darename.shboard monitoring graphs would display even though no data would be available. We now properly disable the monitor graphs and darename.shboard monitoring information when the SNMP metrics are no longer polled.
|FEATURE: The Client Filter Settings window has been re-worked. You now create the Brand and then modify the settings.
|UPDATE: Two settings have been moved from ‘WebAdmin Settings’ to the ‘Client Filter Settings’ window: ‘Global Uninstall Password’ and ‘Override Profile Manager Password’.

|FIXED: The Quick Reports in Demand, Scheduled, and Continuous Reports could rename.show the wrong report data when Reports in the display had an error.
|FEATURE: A new setting, ‘Request Context IP Address’ has been added the ‘Client Filter Settings’. This setting allows you to set a request context IP address defined in Request Servers with the Restrict Group Lookups option enabled.
|FIXED: Google Directory Sync would not always update user groups within Gsuite even when a complete sync was run.
|FIXED: The 6.3.3 release did not properly set the Reporter database version after upgrade.
|UPDATE: The Report ‘Show Definition’ link now opens a pre-formatted ‘Report Definition’ window to replace the frame view.
