It has been said that “good things come to those who wait.” Generally, this is true. However, when it comes to improving the things we rely on each day, another old saying comes to mind: “Too much is not enough!”
In the spirit of this latter sentiment, we are delighted to announce that Devolutions Hub 2023.3.100 is now available. This is a mid-release offering several new and improved features ahead of the first major release of the year (v2024.1), which should be available in March.
About Our Mid-Release Update Approach
We know that some companies don’t offer mid-release updates. Or if they do, then these updates are fairly superficial. This is done to make their major releases look more substantial. At Devolutions, we don’t do things this way. We are obsessed with user experience around here, and the sooner we can get new and better features in the hands of our users, the better!
So let’s take a look at what’s new and improved in this 2023.3.100 mid-release!
NEW: Revamped Look & Feel of the Web Interface
To start off the new year, we’ve revamped the look and feel of Hub’s user interface. Not only does Hub’s interface sport a new look, its functionality has been greatly improved:
- Search Entries has been moved to the top
- Messages, Notifications, Release News, and your User Profile are accessible from a persistent menu
- New entries can be added even more quickly from the Add Entry button’s new location
- System and Utilities navigation has been streamlined with the improved side navigation
A new Vault Selector facilitates access through collapsible sections, favorited vaults, or searching for just the vault you need.
Not enabled by default, the Vault Selector can be enabled by navigating to your User Profile → Settings → User Interface → Vault Selector and change the Position to “In the sidebar.”
Give it a try and tell us what you think!
Though the default is set to “On top of the tree view,” this will be changing in the future.
NEW: In-Hub Release Notes & What’s New Page
To ensure that updates are front-and-center, we have included a Release Notes and a What’s New page within Devolutions Hub. Click on the icon in the upper-right corner to quickly access the latest information!
You can choose Dismiss Release News, which will hide the icon entirely, or you can click the Close button.
Clicking on the gear icon will allow you to set your user settings to never show Release News in the future. You can change this setting from the user profile settings.
If you have chosen to dismiss the release news, no worries, you can always find the details in Help & Tools under Utilities in the Side Navigation!
NEW: User Tags to Track External and Privileged Users
Keep track of vendors, sub-contractors, or external users through the External User tag. With the Privileged tag, keep track of users that have higher-level permissions. Filter the data within user reports via the new tags to quickly track activity.
NEW: User Expiration Dates
If you have temporary users (e.g. external users, or users who will soon be leaving your team), set expiration dates to disable access for those users after the set date!
NEW: Externally Share Passwords & Messages Securely Through Devolutions Send
Do you need to send passwords or sensitive information safely to a trusted external contact? Devolutions Hub is now integrated with our new Devolutions Send service to create a secured link with all content encrypted client-side.
- The secured link is valid only for 24 hours, meaning your data won’t stay around.
- Everything is encrypted client-side: Devolutions can never read your secure messages.
- Add additional protection through an optional passphrase.
From the password field or via Send Message functionality, send a secure link by email or create a secure link to share as needed.
As a default, this feature is enabled in the System Setting → Advance → External sharing.
IMPROVED: Simplified Business User Interface Profile
Last year we introduced the business user profile to provide a simpler user experience. To make this even easier to use, the list of Entry properties shown in the default view was reduced. You can always see all properties through the Advanced toggle!
IMPROVED: Launch SSH & Telnet Sessions from the Web Interface
In addition to launching Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and PowerShell sessions from the web interface, open SSH and Telnet sessions as well! To take advantage of web-launched sessions, you will need to configure the Connection Entry to Devolutions Gateway. Once the entry has been configured, launch your session via the “Open in Web Client” icon.
You will need an RDM or Launcher license to use the launching-via-web-interface functionality.
IMPROVED: Importing Third-Party Entries
You can now import entries from many different sources by navigating to Utilities → Help & Tools → Import. Bringing all of your business users and their data together under one tool just got so much easier!
IMPROVED: Quicker PAM Operations
Sluggish PAM operations are a thing of the past. We've optimized our PAM services so that changes are processed instantly. Now, when you choose to reset a password and then hit “refresh,” the PAM operation is already completed!
