We're happy to announce that User Environment Manager 9.7 has been released. Just a single new feature this time, but a very important one if you're using the UEM SyncTool: application blocking and privilege elevation are now also supported in SyncTool scenarios.
Hi UEMdev and thanks for the update!
1 question: What do you mean with "Drive Mapping with Explicit Credentials"
Do you mean AD Group Memberships or Conditions like this one:
Or do you mean maybe net use for explicit users over logon tasks ? Other things ?
In older versions you used to be able to map drives to users using a set user name and password, this would be used instead of the currently logged in user. They removed the option from the management interface, but older configuration files still have the settings in them. I've been dreading this since that use case is going to make me do something different now.
As sjesse already mentioned, previous versions of UEM allowed specifying a user name and password for a drive mapping.
As the password could not be securely encrypted, we decided to deprecate this feature in UEM 9.0. Since then it has not been possible to create such mappings with explicit credentials, but both the UEM Management Console and the UEM agent still processed existing settings.
At some point, deprecated features go away completely, so as of UEM 9.7 this support is gone.
If you don't mind me asking: any particular reason why you can't manage this with group-based access control on the shares?
