- Devices Page - Allow filtering by Device Groups (the new filter field replaced the 'Location' filter field)
- Applications Storage Management
Cloud Administrators can limit the time project's applications are stored in Cloud storage. This will help to remove the unused applications and keep
the occupied storage low, for more information: : Project Resources
- Devices Page - Allows filtering by Device Groups (the new filter field replaced the 'Location' filter field)|
- Cloud Logs Location - We change the default logs location of the components: Cloud Server, File Storage, Application Signer and Region Proxy.
The new folder location is outside to the installation folder, this will reduce the storage size of the installation folder and will ensure consistency of log retention
For more information and the new default location please see: Cloud Log Files
