Release Notes 8.14: LWM2M and Branding improvements


New functionalities & improvements

Administration improvements:

New: Branding and full subtenant management have been implemented. This feature will be available only to “Enterprise Edition” customers.

  • With the new branding editor, you can change the logos and colors of each tenant and its subtenants.


  • Before the branding changes are applied, you can preview the branding to make sure if everything is correct. You can also select the application that you would like to preview.


Cockpit improvements:

The “Send dashboard via email” smart rule is now deprecated. You will no longer be able to create new “Send dashboard via email” smart rules.

  • If you are already using this smart rule, you will still be able to manage it, but you will not be able to create a new one.

Additional improvements:

  • LWM2M improvements:
    • Uploading invalid “OMA”, “DDF” or “XML” files no longer crash the UI.
    • The LWM2M service is now scalable. Larger number of devices can be used without any issues.
    • Device communication mode has been improved. Operations may only be sent to a device if we received a registration update within a configurable interval. For example in the last 30 seconds. Otherwise, they remain pending.
    • Auto-observe functionality has been added to the LWM2M service. If Auto-Observe is turned on for a resource, this resource will be automatically observed if a device provides it.
  • The “request support” link is now configurable in the system options file.
  • New: The OPC/UA agent has the possibility to configure a proxy in the properties file. For more info, please see here.
  •  The “Device data” widget on the “Device Info” dashboard has been improved.
  • (Beta) The graph widgets on the “Device Info” dashboard have been improved.
    • Widgets which are not supported by the device have been removed.
    • All measurements are now located in a single graph.
    • Filtering option has been added to select the measurements that will be displayed.
