Workforce Management Web Release Notes
This release includes only resolved issues.
This release contains the following resolved issues:
When the WFM Web [auth] provider configuration option is set to wfm, the access token is now refreshed and does not expire. Previously, when WFM Web was configured in this way, the access token sometimes expired after one hour, causing unexpected errors to occur in various places in the application. (WFM-32909)
WFM Web's SameSite Cookies property is now set to Strict to ensure that Cookies are used only for same site purposes. Previously, the SameSite property was not defined. (WFM-32781)
No special procedure is required to upgrade to release 8.5.215.09.
