Performance

We have improved the overall performance of Liquit Workspace. Larger environments (10.000 user/devices and over) will especially notice and benefit from this. Searching, sorting and filtering in the management interface are made faster. The performance enhancements will also affect the following:

  • Reduced load on the SQL servers (CPU / disk / network)
  • Time needed to refresh the agent is reduced
  • CPU load on the Liquit Workspace Servers is reduced

New Filter Options

Support for Deployments

We have added the possibility to use filters on deployments, this allows you to use an even more extensive set of filters to manage your deployments aside from contexts. For an extensive list of all filters which have been made available for deployments please also visit the Filter overview.

The big benefit of this new feature is that it allows for deployments to become available based on file or registry information on the local device.

WMI Query on Filters

Administrators can create conditions that are stored within WMI. We have now made it possible to add filters to packages and deployments that allow you to define WMI queries and filter on its results.

WMI queries offer additional values you will be able to filter on, these include but are not limited to:

  • CPU load
  • Filter on hardware drivers
  • Memory capacity
  • Battery status
  • CPU info
  • OS information

Access & Security

Radius OTP

RADIUS is used in a wide range of authentication scenarios, to ensure multi-factor authentication in Liquit Workspace, we now support all RADIUS authentications flows.

In addition to the challenge response method, we have added the One Time Password method to this release. The OTP method will directly use the username and token code and for authentication.

ACME client

The Automated Certificate Management Environment (ACME) client is a brand-new addition to Liquit Workspace. ACME allows for certificates to be automatically renewed. This ensures that certificates will not expire by either forgetting to renew or replace certificate(s) manually within the Liquit platform.

We support “Let’s Encrypt” whose certificates are valid for 90 days and are free of charge. After 60 days, a new certificate will be requested automatically. When the certificate renewal does not complete successfully for any reason, IT will be automatically notified by email.

This new feature is extremely relevant for organizations that manage many zones in Liquit.

Benefits:

  • Reduced end-user disruption because of expired certificates
  • Less administrative work for IT

License Management

License key in license management

We have added an extra field where you can enter the license key that is associated with a particular license. You can use these license keys in a dynamic variable that uses the license object's license key field as a value. This can be useful to use a license key that has been defined on a license and use the key within actions of a package, for example to either install or register the license key with the software using (dynamic) variables.

Setup Store Enhancements

CVE information

CVE, short for Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures are publicly disclosed security flaws. The new release now features an overview of all CVE numbers that have been assigned to a setup or update in the Setup Store connector. This list is displayed when you create or update a package via the Setup Store connector.

Enhance Packages for Setup Store Connector

It is often valuable to have more information added to your packages. We now offer enrichment of packages that have been created with the Setup Store Connector. The following fields are automatically provisioned for your managed package: Excerpt, Description and Website.

The Setup Store connector now provisions the excerpt, description, and website fields for managed packages.

Satellite Server

Content support for the Satellite Server

Content replication has been added for the Satellite Servers, allowing you to install satellite servers on branch locations and enable the content replication feature. Agents download content from the Satellite Server instead of the Primary Servers. This ensures that content is only downloaded once for a Satellite server within a single branch instead of all devices downloading content from the Primary Servers over the internet.

Custom content sources for agents

Define content sources to use for agents instead of downloading content from the Primary Servers. Agents can now download content from Satellite servers or network shares instead. Content sources can be configured globally within a zone or can be overridden within contexts to allow serving content closer to the agents.

All Other Features

Custom program start-up parameters for personal packages

End-users can add personal (local) applications, files, or website to their Workspace. For power users we now offer the option to define program parameters on the advanced tab of a personal package. This feature has been created to allow for additional user defined startup parameters for an application.

Package Snapshots

Do you want to know who changed and/or published a package to a certain stage? Liquit Workspace 3.8 shows the person that has modified the snapshot of a package.

Visual indication when a manual refresh is triggered in the Liquit Launcher

Refresh actions in progress will now be indicated with a spinner visual in the Liquit Launcher. It will show when using the F5 function or triggering Refresh from the Tray Icon.

Azure AD non-security groups

Liquit Workspace is now able to use non-security groups provided in the Azure Active Directory. This allows Microsoft 365 groups or distribution lists to be used for publishing applications or defining contexts.

This feature is available with the Liquit Access Manager license.

Direct Access for Azure Blob Storage without an agent

Azure Blob Storage can now be configured with the Direct Access feature enabled for web clients that do not have a supported agent installed. Direct Access feature redirects clients to obtain media/content/files from the Azure Blob Storage directly. Instead of using Primary Servers to serve the content.
