Change Log for 6.3.4

Ticket Description
21124 UPDATE: A ‘Close window’ icon has been added to the ‘Identical entries’/’Similar entries’ and ‘URL Lookup” popup windows.
21851 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.
21937 FIXED: Deleting an Account using the API did not delete the Client Filter Groups.
21947 FEATURE: The IWF NPI List is now downloaded and pushed from update.netsweeper.com.
21952 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.
21968 FEATURE: The IWF NPI List has been added to the Routes Advertising Service.
22000 FIXED: The warning message, in the Global Deny Page, when switching to the Rich Text editor has been removed.

22041 UPDATE: A 15-minute WebDB cache is now enabled by default.
22047 FIXED: When the SNMP poller was disabled in the WebAdmin, the monitoring graphs and dashboard monitoring graphs would display even though no data would be available. We now properly disable the monitor graphs and dashboard monitoring information when the SNMP metrics are no longer polled.
22065 FEATURE: The Client Filter Settings window has been re-worked. You now create the Brand and then modify the settings.
22070 UPDATE: Two settings have been moved from ‘WebAdmin Settings’ to the ‘Client Filter Settings’ window: ‘Global Uninstall Password’ and ‘Override Profile Manager Password’.

22095 FIXED: The Quick Reports in Demand, Scheduled, and Continuous Reports could show the wrong report data when Reports in the display had an error.
22096 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.
