Resolved Issues

This release contains the following resolved issues:


User Session detection fallback logic now supports Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). (GIR-4259)


If the upgrade process fails during auto-upgrade, the SR Service will now rollback the upgrade changes and restart the service. (GIR-4235)


The credentialsTimeout configuration parameter now reflects minutes. Previously, this parameter reflected seconds. (GIR-4152)


SR Service no longer sends the "WWW-Authenticate" HTTP header on 401 responses. As a result, the credentials pop up on the web browser no longer appears. (GIR-3956)


The SR Service Recorder process name was changed from SRC.exe to SrsProcess.exe. (GIR-3848)


When the SR Service receives a 403 authentication error due to bad credentials, it will not retry to upload a screen recording using the same credentials. Previously, the SR Service continuously retried to upload the recording using the same incorrect credentials. (GIR-3778)


The SR Service default Temp folder (that is, the data save location), moved from the installation folder to the Windows LOCALAPPDATA. (GIR-3574)


The SR Service now uploads a recording using the credentials of the user that created the recording. Previously, the SR Service used any credentials to upload any recordings, regardless of which user created which recordings. (GIR-3540)


A separate log file is no longer created when you are logged in as an agent desktop and the SR Service is restarted. Previously, an exception was logged and a separate log file (SRC.EXE.LOG) was created. (GIR-3169)


Server TLS certificate validation is now enabled by default. Previously, the Server TLS certificate validation was disabled by default. (GIR-3019)
