This release includes many new key features and enhancements, such as:
- New and Improved Axeda Policy Server - The Axeda Policy Server, a server-based software application residing on your customer's network (such as a bank, retail store, hospital, or other end-user location), has been enhanced for improved scalability and performance, usability, and management. This new version enables your customers to manage policies for different types of devices in multiple locations using a new and customizable user-friendly interface that has been optimized to manage large device counts. The release also includes support for redundant gateways. The new Axeda Policy Server makes it even easier to configure policies and monitor requests for operations, and maintain a local audit log of device activity to help meet Sarbanes-Oxley requirements. As a result, you can accelerate end-user adoption of your connected product solution, while providing your customers with the control that they require.
- Extended UI Modules - With Extended UI modules, you can now add new custom modules to the Asset dashboard that display output from any custom application or custom object. These modules enhance Axeda applications by enabling you to display helpful data and links, such as documentation files for a related asset, support tickets created for an asset in a CRM system, local weather, and more.
- Asset Muting - This new feature enables you to block communications between the Axeda Platform and a specific asset in response to a variety of customer requirements. For example, this feature is particularly useful when an agent is not operating properly, when a customer requests to exempt a connected asset from normal processing, or for troubleshooting issues with assets or agents.
- Groovy Upgrade - To improve custom object performance, Axeda Sandbox Systems have been upgraded with the latest version of Groovy, a dynamic language for the Java platform. The new version of Groovy also includes new features such as first-class JSON support and more helper and library additions.
We also encourage you to continue submitting and voting on feature requests via the Ideas tab on our support portal , so that our quarterly updates meet your expectations and you get maximum value from the Axeda Platform.
