Release 22.04

What's new
  • Login for Mac supports macOS 12.3 (Monterey)

  • Login for Mac supports macOS M1 ARM-based architecture

Resolved issues
  • CP-1167 – After installation where "Suggests use of an OATH-based method on first login regardless of your Adaptive Policy settings" is set and "Bypass interval" is set, when end users first log in, they will no longer automatically see a login page that suggests setting a second factor.

Release 21.04

What's new

All of these features are supported only in the Identity Platform release 21.04 or later.

  • New integrated Login for Endpoint configuration page in Identity Platform. Open the new Login for Endpoint page from the Identity Platform user interface to customize your Login for Endpoints user experience. The easy-to-use pages help you set up your operating system, the multi-factor methods, and even personalize your users' experience during authentication. (Existing customers will recognize the options that were manually set in the config.json file in previous releases.)

  • New second-factor authentication methods added. You can now choose the following new 2FA methods: PIN and link-to-accept available for both SMS/text and email.

  • CP-1071 – Use the new option, Suggests use of an OATH-based method on first login regardless of your Adaptive Policy settings, to display a message that suggests end users authenticate for the first login by using an OATH-based method. This ensures that they can log in when offline.
