Resolved Issues and Behavior Changes


The following list records issues resolved in this release and behavior changes.


  • It is now possible for users who either logged into the portal before their password expired, or who use IWA or certificates to login, to change their password once it has expired (CC-64966, CC-65063).
  • Devices marked as personal can now successfully be imported to be corporate-owned (CC-64777).
  • Android for Work mobile app deployment and auto-install once again work as documented (CC-60982, CC-63610, CC-63684).
  • Reapply policy no longer removes bookmarks from the home screen on Android devices using Android 7 or earlier (CC-64498).
  • Options to unenroll a device are now not shown if the selected device was enrolled via device-owner mode (CC-63779, CC-63372).
  • In device-owner mode the delete command now wipes the selected device rather than unenrolling it (CC-63994).
  • Where Partner Management has been configured between an external IdP (i.e. one that is not Centrify) and the cloud service, and a user has IdP single-signed on to the cloud service via Partner Management, it is now possible to launch SAML apps without the User Portal being visible during the launch / sign-on (CC-64706).
