The 8.2 release improves workflow planning, and includes additional fixes and improvements.
Improved work flow planning
The 8.2 release improves the workflow process.
In the desktop client:
New work flow processes replace templates
Set up strict work orders with processes that must be followed
New work order recording task
Add start and end nodes in the work flow view
New work order process permissions
New work flow permissions
There is a new user permission for administration of work flow processes under Global Permissions in Administration > Users or User Groups in the web client.
Require work orders to follow a process
You can now require work orders to follow a selected process in Tools > Preferences.
Enhanced Active Directory and LDAP support
You can now add details about your Active Directory or LDAP server in the Administration > Authentication Servers option in the web client. This enables you to search the authentication server for users and groups, and to send email to individual users in work orders (if the server has a valid email for that user).
When adding a group from the authentication server (AD or LDAP) all users in that group can login to Data Center Operation, it is no longer necessary to create separate users in Data Center Operation.
Plan floor mounted equipment
The work order functionality has been extended, so you can record putting equipment on the floor. Coordinates are used to place it and reserve the space.
Improved Rack ATS support
Rack ATS are now modeled much better. They can be part of the power path, and the power capacity calculations take them into account. They are also shown as power assets in the Genome Library.
Updated Java package
The Java package has been updated to 18.104.22.168. This resolves a prior issue with a memory leak in version 22.214.171.124.
