CloudLink version

Release Date

Changes

CloudLink 4.1.1

June 2020

Introduced support for the following:

  • Installation of the CloudLink application on Microsoft Windows Server 2016 and Microsoft Windows Server 2019.

  • Provisioning of accounts from Microsoft Windows Server 2016 Active Directory.

CloudLink 4.1.0

March 2020

Upgrade of SQL Compact Edition from Version 3.5 to 4.0

CloudLink 4.0.3

April 2018

The region names have changed in the configuration options for selecting the Enterprise Vault.cloud region.

CloudLink 4.0.2

January 2018

This version adds support for the Enterprise Vault.cloud US-US3 region data center.

CloudLink 4.0.1

January 2017

This version includes the CloudLink Google Sync feature, which can provision accounts for Google G Suite Enterprise Gmail message archiving. This functionality is for use in environments where you manage your Google G Suite Enterprise users and groups from Microsoft Active Directory. For more information, see the CloudLink Google Account Synchronization Guide.

This version of CloudLink also contains a number of bug fixes, including fixes for the following issues:

  • If you used the Archive User Browser to select the users for a task, the task ran for the selected users, but in the Created Task List the Target was recorded as All. This has been fixed.

  • In the welcome message template, CloudLink failed to save a change to the From field unless you also changed the content of the Body field. This has been fixed.

  • In the Task Manager wizard, a problem occurred if you attempted to configure a task to repeat a set number of times. When you selected Number Of Times, CloudLink displayed the error message String was not recognized as a valid DateTime, and you could not save the task. This has been fixed.

  • A problem occurred if you attempted to copy a task that had already run. CloudLink displayed the error message String was not recognized as a valid DateTime. This has been fixed.

  • When CloudLink performed the bulk removal of web folders, it could fail to remove a web folder if the folder's name or URL had changed. Now CloudLink uses a more effective method to identify the web folders for removal.

  • On the Task Manager wizard's page for Exchange user, group, or OU selection, the explanatory text was not clear. The text has now been improved.

CloudLink 4.0

January 2016

This version of CloudLink introduced the following:

  • Synchronization of on-premises Exchange mailbox delegation permissions. A new action for Exchange tasks lets you synchronize the delegation permissions that are applied to user mailboxes and shared mailboxes.

    See Introduction to Exchange mailbox delegation synchronization.

  • Group-based Sync, which supports a specific LDAP custom query format to target Exchange distribution groups. Group-based Sync can accommodate changes in group membership when it is used in recurrent tasks. A new configuration file option lets you control what happens to the accounts of users who leave a distribution group that is targeted with a Group-based Sync.

    See Selecting users, groups, or OUs from the Task Manager Wizard.
