|v1.12 Release Notes - 02/12/2019|
As part of our commitment to review continuously security standards in our products, our latest enterprise podcast application release (v1.12) will introduce configurable user session lengths.
uStudio podcast sessions will be set by default to check every 10 hours to ensure a user is authenticated. With configurable session lengths, SSO administrators can now set this to whatever they would like.
Note that if you are using SSO, your IT team may want to review session lengths and consider whether changes would impact the user application experience. Here’s how a typical SSO configuration works:
When a podcast user’s session expires, the podcast application automatically attempts to re-authenticate the individual with the identity provider (IdP). During this process, the user may notice an authentication page on the device that will disappear almost immediately if the user’s session is extended. In other words, a momentary "flash" will appear on the screen. If the user does not authenticate for any reason, s/he will be asked to sign in again to the application.
When using uStudio as your identity provider, users will be asked to log in again after (a) three days of not using the application; (b) 30 days since the last log-in; or (c) credentials have changed. SSO customers control their own log-in policies.
- Ability to Delete Groups in Product Management Console (PMC): Administrators now have the ability to delete Groups they created for content restriction in the administration area of the PMC. See how to delete groups here.
- Issues Uploading Media in Internet Explorer: We had reports of issues during the Episode / Media upload process in the PMC when users were in Internet Explorer. These issues have been identified and resolved.
As always, we’re here if you have any questions.
