ConnectWise has released a new patch for Automate 11. Automate 11 has progressed to patch 17, changing the Automate Server version to 11.0.418 and moving the control center up to version 110.418. Patch 17 includes new features as well as bug fixes. Some of the top enhancements and issues fixed are listed:
- Additional columns have been added to the Devices screen in the Patch Manager to provide patch windows and install dates. The Devices grid had the following additions: Last Microsoft Window, Last 3rd Party Window, Next Microsoft Window and Next 3rd Party Window columns. The Current Patches grid had an Install Date column added. For more information, please refer to the Devices Section or Current Patches section.
- The Overall Compliance score calculation now offers the option to include devices with no patch inventory. It will now take an average of each device’s patch compliance, ensuring devices with out a patch inventory are captured as zero percent compliant in the score. The previous method took the total approved and installed patch count and divided it by the total approved patch count. For more information, please refer to the Current Status on the Dashboard article.
- Corrected an issue that was causing Mac agents that were re-added to the system to be assigned a new Agent ID as opposed to reusing the previous Agent ID.
- Corrected an issue that was causing Wake On LAN command to fail when sent from the Computer Management screen.
