Release 20.7

Release Notes - Version 20.7#


New Features:#

Code Block Message Parts
Added new message parts to MLA allowing users to correctly insert and format code syntax. The message part will create a code block, ensuring text maintains its formatting in order to accurately display sections of code.

Code blocks also feature Syntax highlighting, further enhancing the distinction of code content within the messages.

Mark all as read Button Added a new button at the top of the MLA dock. This button will mark all unread messages as read to streamline message management.

API Attribute Based Access Control & Ethical Wall Controls Added support to the collaboration API for ABAC and Ethical Wall controls. Behaving much like MLA, these controls allow policies to enforce security configurations on API authentications and interactions by harnessing ABAC and Ethical Wall policies.

Attribute-based Access Control will enforce authentication policies, determining provisioned accounts' eligibility to authenticate with the system. Ethical Wall controls will enforce the security policy configuration on provisioned accounts to dictate authorized or restricted communications.
