HIGHLIGHTS

•SSO ENHANCEMENTS
We’re excited to announce significant enhancements to our Single Sign On (SSO) functionality. 
 
Prior to this release, UNIFI’s SSO functionality included the ability to automatically create new users in UNIFI. Now, once SCIM provisioning is enabled, customers can also automate:
 
•User deactivation 
•User group updates 
•PATCH operations for updating users and user groups.
 

This additional functionality significantly reduces the manual effort required to manage users in UNIFI.

In addition, SSO provides significant efficiency gain for users by:

•Reducing password fatigue
•Simplifying username and password management
•Improving used identity and data protection
•Increasing speed by simplifying the login process
•Relieving help desk workloads
•Reduced security risk

WRAP UP

Thank you for being a valued UNIFI customer and taking the time to get the details on our 2021-1 release.  Speaking of, you may notice that the numbering structure looks different from our previous releases. To keep things simple, we’ll utilize this structure moving forward where each release will start with the calendar year, followed by the release number in chronological order of that year.  Retroactive releases will be referenced by their original number.

Before you go, we want to quickly preview what you can expect in our next release, 2021-2:

•Search enhancements: Performance enhancements, optimized search results, additional search filters, and a streamlined search UI.

•Type Catalog Updates: As of Revit 2021, certain unit of measurement definitions have changed which can cause type catalogs to become incompatible between Revit 2021 and previous Revit years. As of our next update, customers will be able to manage multiple type catalogs for a single Revit family.

As always, if there’s a feature, update, or bug fix you’re hoping for in a future release please don’t hesitate to let us know.
