Current Release

Note: The current release is what was last sent to the test environment for approval.

January 21, 2023

Resolved Bugs

  • Missing bulk trigger notifications. Only one contact in the recipient list was getting a notification
  • Missing beacons on asset when the beacon has not yet checked in with a gateway (this was affecting the SAP proxy)
  • Missing location beacon in v1 asset API response (this was affecting the SAP proxy)
  • (Pending) scheduled reports configuration for SMTP server incorrect
  • Note: Scheduled report module is currently still not able to communicate with the SMTP server due to a port being blocked by AWS. If the port blocking issue is not able to be resolved the work around is to have the scheduled reports module communicate through the API to send the automated email reports
  • Scheduled report module crash affecting automated report emails and battery and beacon first seen calculations
  • Improved alarm list and threshold values for better system stability alerting
  • bulk trigger submit button click causing a cancel dialog to popup
