Detailed feature list

Added ability to search user groups instead of having dropdown at multiple places so that groups can be searched and added even if there are more than 1000 AD groups.


Local users can be added as delegated administrator

Added ability to add local users as delegated administrator under Delegated Management. This works both for Digital Access Admin and XPIs.


Ericom client has been removed

Removed EricomClient / Access now references from Digital Access Admin under Resources. This will only be removed from the default standard resources and not the ones specifically added by users. Resources added by users will have to be manually removed.

Added support for TLS version 1.3.0

Added support for TLS version 1.3.0. Removed the support for SSL v2 and v3. Removed weak ciphers for TLS v1.0, 1.1. Disabled weak ciphers by default for TLS v1.2.

Known issue: User certificate authentication method no longer works when TLS1.3 is enabled. The workaround is to disable TLS1.3. See Known limitations in Digital Access for more details.
