Thank you for the update @mclopton,

Do we have to update to the Skyline Appliance v2.7 to be eligible for the above features?

Hi @AlbertWT , this was a Skyline Advisor release only, not a Collector release, so you do not need to upgrade to Collector v2.7 to access these new features. We do recommend you upgrade when you can, though, as some features, including Bulk Product End Point Configuration, are only available in the latest Collector releases.

Thanks for reaching out!
