Release Notes 8.16.0: Configuration menu and LWM2M improvements



New functionalities & improvements

Device Management improvements:

(Beta) The widgets arrangement on the “Device Info” tab has been optimized. The widgets on the dashboard have been made smaller.

Additional improvements:

  • LWM2M improvements:
    • We now provide access to our “Firmware Repository” via CoAP protocol.
    • If a device that provides a LWM2M object comes online, it will automatically be observed.
  • The “LoRa Actility” microservice has been improved.
    • “Little endian” support to decode the payload has been added.
  • An additional info message is now displayed when the TFA settings are disabled on platform level and users cannot edit them. The info message states: “You cannot edit TFA settings, because they are disabled on the platform level.”
  • The TSL certificate API can now be accessed by multiple IP addresses.
  • System operators are now able to see the manifest file history. The microservice manifest file is stored as a managed object.
  • The OPC/UA agent now supports the usage of certificates.
    • HTTPS and encrypted and signed TCP support has been added.
  • The HTTPS proxy option has been removed from the application API. The corresponding parameters are not required anymore and it is not possible to create such type of an application anymore.
  • Developers will be able to access a tool to build microservice packages, which contain third party applications. These packages can be hosted by Cumulocity.sss
  • AngularJS has been upgraded. We are now using AngularJS version 1.6.6. For more information, see here.
  • (Beta) Unit conversion has been implemented into exports.
    • Measurements can now be exported in the selected measurement unit.
  • Support links are now configurable for each tenant. This feature is available only to Enterprise Edition customers.
