Dashworks Release Notes 5.6.1

Dashworks Release Notes - Gorgon

Executive Summary

There are lots of new developments around tasks in this release: both in details and self service. As the tasks page for individual objects in Evergreen evolves, a new time picker has been introduced to edit date & time tasks. In self service, text tasks are the latest component to be added, as well as mandatory and read only configurations across all task types. Custom fields in Evergreen Admin have now been taken a step further with the ability to create and edit.


Text Tasks in Self-Service 

gorgon release notes highlights-1

Text tasks are now available as a new component type in self service (DAS-25294). Text tasks can be used to present or solicit information from end users via self service, such as feedback about their deployment or ad hoc requests. Within the component there are options to make the text task mandatory or read only (DAS-25296).

Create static list from CSV

Gorgon release notes CSV list-1

If you have lists of devices outside Dashworks, these can now be imported by uploading a CSV file (DAS-26016, DAS-26022). The CSV only need to contain a single column of either hostnames or device keys, and these will be matched to devices in Dashworks. The result will be saved as a static list that can then be used for automations, project scope or bulk update. Not only can you create new lists but you can also add or remove devices from existing static lists using the same mechanism. The same functionality exists for Users, Devices, Mailboxes and Apps.

Charts on Ring Scoping
