Breaking Changes - Updating v23.4 and below
Please be advised, when upgrading from v23.4 or below there is a one-time permissions requirement to successfully install/upgrade the MCE database using the new Management Center UI.
The Management Center service account should be a member of
db_owner, with ALTER_DATABASE permission, when the UI installation or generated database upgrade script is run. This will allow the MCE database to be altered to prepare it for future updates through the Management Center UI.
Administrators may enable an in-app feedback form on the MindLink Anywhere page of the Management Center.
When enabled, the in-app feedback form will show to users in the user profile menu. Feedback consists of a rating scale and a text input.
All feedback remains internal to your deployment. The feedback form gathers information in the MLA logs, which administrators may choose to collect and pass on to MindLink at their own discretion.
Users are encouraged to not include any sensitive content in their feedback submission, and any feedback forwarded to MindLink by administrators should ensure sensitive information hasn't been included.
Attribute Types (add/update)
23.6 allows administrators to add and update Attribute Types in their MCE environment. Attribute Types are a prerequisite to wider 23.7 Dissemination Control functionality, adding attribute types to MCE groups to provide further control over who can, and can't, access MCE groups.
23.6 includes the following MceAdmin PowerShell commands:
Further details for what to expect in the upcoming 23.7 release can be found in the 23.7 Dissemination Controls Overview
Email Notifications Configuration Improvements
The configuration of email notifications and associated features has been updated with a unified MCE Emails page.
Debug keys have been updated to UI configurations in the Email page, too.
Updated configuration details can be found in MCE Email Configuration
Improved Group Management UI for hidden attributes
Managing a group in group management provides an improved experience for cases where member/manager users lose attributes required to be in the group.
Historically, all items would be hidden with a message indicating "Some attributes are hidden"
23.6 will show invalid users with distinct styling to allow administrators to remove them manually, ensuring future attribute changes won't allow them to regain access to groups. User collections, such as AD groups and OUs, or attribute provider attributes, will remain hidden in this scenario with the "Some attribute are hidden" message.
