Code42 Support

Code42 Cloud Version 6.6

Applies to:
  • Code42 for Enterprise

Overview

Version 6.6 of the Code42 cloud includes new features and a number of fixes and enhancements. This release primarily impacts cloud-only Code42 environments (without on-site authority or storage servers), but some of the fixes and enhancements also apply to Code42 environments with on-premises authority servers that use Code42 cloud storage.

Updates affect the following components:

  • Code42 platform (powers the Code42 cloud)
  • Administration console

Features

Improved identity management capabilities

Administrators can now independently configure user authentication and provisioning to more easily automate and scale user management in the Code42 cloud.

Building on the Code42 cloud's existing support for integration with SAML 2.0 identity providers to manage authentication, Code42 now supports integration with any third-party identity provider that supports SCIM 2.0 for user provisioning. This adds the ability to create rules that map your identity provider's SCIM groups to Code42 organizations, automatically assigning roles and permissions to users in your Code42 environment.

The Code42 cloud also improves the process for managing user authentication:
