We are delighted to announce the new Patch Management Engine is scheduled to be updated from RC to GA tomorrow
Feature Enablement Package Support
The highlight of PME 2.8 is the added support for installing Feature Upgrades via the enablement package provided by Microsoft.
For those unfamiliar with what these are, Microsoft was aware of how time-consuming major upgrades could be due to the file size, lengthy install time, and multiple reboots needed to complete them. They changed the release process to a spring and fall major upgrade like 22H1 and 22H2 and then took it one step further by greatly reducing the size and impact of those in the form of a Feature Enablement package.
We are very pleased to announce the new version of the Take Control for Mac Agent 6.00.41 including the new pinpointed features.
MSP Manager has added User authorization flow for personal outlook.com mailboxes as well as individual M365 mailboxes. You can now add an outlook.com or individual mailbox in an M365 account as a Monitored Mailbox using Microsoft’s User Consent authorization.
We are very excited to announce that the Public API for MSP Manager is now generally available. The Public API allows you to read virtually all of the data stored in your MSPM Company, as well as basic write operations for Companies, Locations, Contacts, Assets, Tickets, Time Entries & some Service Item updates.
