Improvements

License Management

  • The new reports "Products with User Based Metrics" and "User Based Installations" improve the evaluation of installations in metering with user-based license metrics.

Asset Management

  • Software that is installed on connected devices is now also displayed in the software view on the employee.
  • The synchronization process between the recognition module and Spider Core has been revised.  Employees are deactivated if the associated AD user is not delivered by the Active Directory for a defined  period of time. This time span is configurable. Furthermore, a tile has been added to the edit form for employees, which is then displayed when an employee has been generated from an AD user.

Common

  • In Spider Admin, reports that are used by the alert and report system can now also be configured so that they are sent every six months or annually.

Corrections

License Management

  • In certain cases the "Valid to" field was overwritten when the license was created. The behavior has been corrected.
  • In certain cases, maintenance could be classified as invalid if no end date was given. The behavior has been corrected.

Asset Management

  • For software products without product information, an incomplete message was displayed on the edit page. The message has been corrected.
  • If software was called up from the overview page for recognized software products, it was previously not possible to navigate back within the user interface. A return button is now displayed in the ribbon menu.
