Fixed Issues

Component

ID

Title

Description

PEM

MGR-4131

External sharing with an unknown user was causing sync error and failure to login for clients

In the PEM did not have domain authorizations loaded (not common), a user with a key shared externally would get sync errors blocking login

PEM

MGR-4130

Asset endpoint with URN doesn't work with Expressions

If a Community Key has been shared to a user by means of an Expression, attempting to fetch that asset via the "asset?urn=X" endpoint results in the error "You do not have permission." with the reason "No Right"

PEM

MGR-4098

Timestamps shown in UTC for approvals

While the time displayed on the footer of the SEM is current/correct, the events tab are current and correct, the Actions | Approved time appears to be in UTC

PEM

MGR-3315

Admin API fix for response code

Admin API returns the wrong http response code when user is unauthorized

PEM

MGR-2327, MGR-1200

Sharing in cluster scenarios not always working

aa/userOrServer does not respond with Server info for potential Satellite accounts, thus causing sharing difficulties

Desktop Client

ARC-2518

No DSI Dashboard data submitted when discovery filter was empty

A trigger to send DSI elements for Smartcrypt Dashboards was not happening when remediation actions were triggered without a discovery filter, but instead just file filters

Desktop Client

ARC-2499

Timing issue causing data in smartpoint to create new file on save

For a particular case of sharing violation (file in use) when we attempt to reopen the file (based on the collaboration mode settings) and an error is presented to a user incorrectly.
