Digital.ai Deploy 9.7.0 new features

Improved audit reports

The new Digital.ai Deploy user permissions report makes it easy to provide auditors with a detailed record of the roles that are defined in the system and the global and local permissions assigned to each role. The report is exported in Microsoft Excel format, so it’s easy for technical and business stakeholders to read, filter, search, and share audit data.

Customized login screen

Administrators can now add custom text and images to their log-in screens in Digital.ai Release. Using custom text messages and images you can warn or inform users against systems they are not allowed to use or not authorized to do so. This is useful in highly regulated environments which require internal IT systems to issue necessary warnings to users.

Deploying multiple files

Also, in Digital.ai Deploy, performance when deploying a folder that contains a large number of files has been greatly improved.

Weak ciphers

Weak ciphers in Digital.ai Deploy are now disabled by default. Enabling of weak ciphers can be done as requested.

Known Issues

  • If a task has multiple applications in the reporting tables, the internal ID and secure ID configured for the main application are considered by all other applications.
