Release 20.3

New Features:

COIs, Ethical Wall and attribute-based access control configurations through Management Center
The Management Center for MLA has been updated with several new configuration tabs to enable and configure Classification, COIs, attribute-based access control and Ethical Walls.

Community of Interest tab added to enable and configure COIs

IM Ethical Wall tab added to enable the functionality and provide a ruleset file.

Attribute-based access control tab added to enable the functionality and configure the attributes used to regulate access.

COI labelling for 1-2-1 conversations
The message classification system has been augmented with the ability to "tag" messages with a "Community of Interest" label.

Labels are shown clearly in the user interface and persist with the messages in the backend Exchange history, ensure more effective coupling of messages and labels.

Configuration option for the cache interval for failed attribute-provider requests
Separated the cache interval for attribute-provider requests into success and failure, so that requests can be cached more effectively, with failures typically be cached for a smaller amount of time. This makes troubleshooting attribute server connectivity easier.

User preference setting to show active conversations above the dock
In the settings menu a preference can be enabled to show active IM and Multiparty conversations above the dock in a focused section. Conversations here will not move your dock items, instead creating an additional view to collect and focus active IMs and Multiparties. This allows easy switching between conversations and provides a central place to look for new messages.

User preference to hide names, in favour of aliases
Added a user preference setting to show only a user's set alias in a conversation, where possible.

This only applies where an alias is available, not showing in groups with no set alias or the dock, IM and Multiparty view.
