SendSuite Tracking Release Notes for version 14.8 (December 3, 2021)
Products affected: SendSuiteĀ® Tracking

New Features

This section describes the major new features or enhancements that are included in this release.

SendSuite Tracking. Azure Active Directory (AAD).

AAD authentication has been added to SendSuite Tracking. Once configured, users will leverage AAD for authentication before being granted access to:

  • SendSuite Admin
  • Smart Client
  • Designer
  • SendSuite Mobile

Smart Client Installer. Compact SQL Removed.

No longer required by SendSuite Tracking Smart Client and with Microsoft support officially ending in July 2021, the Compact SQL component has been removed from the installer and legacy dependencies have been severed.

SendSuite Mobile. Photo Proof of Delivery.

In addition to capturing a signature, users may now elect to also attach a photograph taken with the integrated Tracking Assistant camera as further proof of delivery.

SendSuite Tracking. Security Updates.

As part of routine security measures, the following core components have been updated to their latest versions at the time of this release:

  • OpenJDK
  • WildFly

PBIL. Authorization.

PBIL authorization has been changed:

  • Legacy - Token-based with no expiry.
  • New - ID-and-Secret with auto-expiring (15 minutes) token requiring re-authorization and a new token

Smart Client. Enhanced Logging and Debugging Support.

To facilitate better debugging support, enhanced logging has been added to the Smart Client. When investigating issues, Pitney Bowes service and Engineering will collect this log for analysis towards resolution.

Support Items

This section includes items that have been raised via Support and escalated to Development for resolution within this release.

Conditions. 'NA' Operator.

The NA operator will now check for an instance of each character in the evaluation string value instead of instances of the concatenation of all characters (word).

Smart Client. ScanLink Error.

Resolved the occurrence of the 'Class not registered' error when initiating ScanLink.

Smart Client. Bulk Delivery Piece Count.

Resolved the issue causing the Bulk Delivery confirmation prompt to read '0 items will be marked...' instead of the true number of items to be updated.

Smart Client. View Signature.

Corrected an issue resulting in the Smart Client throwing the error: 'An application error has occurred.' when attempting to view a signature in which the signature value in the view table is a recipient's name (e.g., 'maria') instead of the signature file name (e.g., 'PB500062223EI.PNG')

SendSuite Tracking. PBIL Database Connection Management.

Resolved an issue whereby SendSuite Tracking systems integrated with a Locker System via PBIL would exceed the allowed number of database connections. Connection management has been implemented to kill unused connections.

Installer. Windows Administrator Account.

Resolved an issue whereby the product installer would return an error if the target Windows system did not have an account named 'Administrator'. The product will now successfully install on systems where the Administrator account has been removed for security purposes.
