Release 21.4

Release Notes - Version 21.4#


New Features:#

Disable-MceGroup PowerShell Commands
MCE Admin has been augmented with the ability to disable MCE groups by ID. Administrators can disable MCE groups through a PowerShell command, providing the Group ID as follows: Disable-MceGroup -Id <\group id>

Currently the group ID is sourced from the SQL database. Group IDs are found in the AdminGroupLookupEntries table.

Administrators are able to re-enable MCE groups they have disabled. Enable-MceGroup -Id <\group id>

MindLink Mobile MCE Support
MindLink Mobile now supports MCE groups, when configured with the required debug keys. The Mobile client can integrate MCE into an existing UCMA deployment or be leveraged to run only MCE.

Custom Brand Names
Configurations have been added to MLA allowing administrators to "rebrand" their deployments. Brand Naming aims to provide administrators with additional control over the branding language of their MindLink Anywhere deployments, replacing "MindLink Anywhere" with a custom name and "Built. for . Business." With a custom strap line.

Hybrid Group Management
Administrators can enable Hybrid group management functionality, allowing management of UCMA and MCE groups simultaneously. Leveraging the group management interface integrated inside the MLA application, administrators can manage their UCMA groups and MCE groups in once place.

For further customization, administrators are able to configure custom environment names for MCE and UCMA respectively.

Dynamically updating the logging level
A small but powerful change for administrators, 21.4 allows a dynamic configuration of the logging level. Setting a new log level will be reflected dynamically, allowing administrators to troubleshoot or increase log content without any impact on uptime of their MindLink deployment.
