SysAid On-Prem v22.3.35 is now available!

Hi On-Prem SysMates, Can I call you OPSM? Ok, maybe we need to think of a better name (suggestions are welcome in the comments section!). Now, where was I? Oh yeah! Our new version, which also includes Linux, is up and ready for your upgrade: Download SysAid v22.3.35 On-Prem Release Highlights include:New “Additional Data” box gives filtered information on the SSP ticket view giving you only the information you needUsers now enjoy a “cleaner” view of their ticket information in the Self-Service Portal (SSP).The Additional Data box in the ticket view includes only relevant fields (per ticket template) that were filled in (upon ticket creation). No more redundant, empty fields.There’s no need for set up, but admins can easily define fields to be displayed separately in the Ticket Info box in the Settings. Improved Management of Azure Active Directory Automatic updates: All updates to users and groups in Azure are immediately and automatically synced into your helpdesk. No need for scheduled tasks to synchronize between Azure AD and SysAid. Filters: Reduce clutter and redundant information. Admins can filter which users and groups are imported from Azure into SysAid. Learn moreReduce tickets generated From junk email addresses Eliminate “junk” tickets from your queue. Admins can create a blacklist of up to 20 email addresses and/or domains that will be ignored by the Incoming Email integration within SysAid. Emails from these domains will not trigger the creation of a ticket.Better together: SysAid Slack integration v2.0 We have added quite a few great capabilities to our Slack integration. Available on SysAid Marketplace Send Slack Direct Messages from SysAid Attach a Ticket to an existing Slack channel or create a new channel Use the SysAid Slash Commands in Slack Create an SR Link a Slack channel to an SR Show pending workflow action items list Approve/Deny SysAid pending action item directly from Slack Security enhancement - Embed access token required for existing accounts Better control and customization of automation rule triggersBy creating a threshold for operating hours, you enjoy better control and customization of automation (escalation) rules. This new field allows you to establish a threshold that automatically distinguishes which rules are to be calculated in operation hours (short-term) and which are calculated by absolute hours (long-term).The default value for the threshold is set for 168 hours, but you can easily configure it according to your needs. Learn more. In such a scenario, a rule that should run 3 hours after a certain event in a ticket will be calculated by operating hours. A rule that should run once a month, in this case 720 hours, will be calculated in absolute hours. The Essentials for Your Move to Microsoft 365 Exchange OAuth 2.0 protocolTwo years ago, Microsoft announced that it will no longer support basic authentication protocols (SMTP, IMAP, POP). The time has come to move to the more secure and updated OAuth 2.0 protocol.

Version 22.3.40 - Gradual rollout: August 14 - 21

Hi All, A new cloud release is here with some goodies on several fronts, let’s see what we have here:  Making it Easier to Adopt AI Service DeskFor accounts that are happily using a different user repository and must enable Azure for the AI Service Desk, we created a new option to define Azure as a secondary repository. For example, this enables LDAP and Azure User Repositories to work side-by-side.The 'Azure-secondary' mode allows customers to easily setup the AI Service Desk. They can activate the pre-requisite Azure integration without leaving behind their existing groups, filters, sign-in, and password services. Learn more here At least 8 accounts had this on their wish list and now it’s here! 🙌🏼 Query Builder: Low-code Configurability of Date FiltersInstead of having to choose start and end dates, admins can now choose from a simple dropdown list of pre-defined time periods in the query builder. This is available on list filters related to all entities across SysAid.  This saves admins time and requires low effort to set up as no-code is required.    Edit User Group Page Improved The edit page for User Groups has been improved, sectioning the information and actions into three tabs: General, Members, and Permissions, as well as adding option to delete or duplicate group.   Another good one is part of this release on the Patch Management front #15902: Increase the flexibility to configure the Patch Management reboot policy. When choosing “Let Users Decide” admins can select if to include the allow  “Don’t Bother Me Again” option for end-users.  We also fixed bugs and more small features on a couple of SysAid modules:General  | Patch Management | Self-Service Portal | Third-Party Integrations | BI Analytics > Check IT all out < And let us know what you think, in the comments!Cheers,Maayan PS - Want to get notified when new product updates are out?
