Release Notes Through 2023-05-04


Improved Windows Server Inspector Discovery

Liongard has improved the way the platform recognizes existing remote Windows Server Inspections. Now, newly installed Endpoint Agents on Windows Servers will automatically attach to existing Remote Inspectors, or will create a new Inspector ready to be discovered.

This update is part of an ongoing effort to increase the reliability of the Windows Server Inspector. In the future, if you would like to take advantage of the latest versions of the Windows Server Inspector, Liongard will require that you have a local Agent installed on the specific server.

For more information about deploying and managing Liongard Agents, please visit our documentation.

GDAP Updates on Hold

To prioritize the best possible Partner experience, we are delaying the GDAP release originally slated for Thursday May 4.

In the mean time, if you are currently using DAP or GDAP, ensure you have Granular Delegated Admin Privileges (GDAP) relationships correctly configured in your Microsoft Partner Portal (this includes having a “Global Administrator” role with each customer in your Microsoft Partner Portal).

To minimize any potential down time once the update is live, please carefully review the steps outlined on our Docs Site for specifics on permissions and GDAP relationships required.

We appreciate your understanding and will provide more information soon.
