New information has come to light as we continued our due diligence in testing the installation of the Utility, verifying that vulnerabilities have been eliminated, and confirming that Adept operations function as intended. Our recent findings necessitated an update to the Mitigation Utility, which we posted to the Synergis Customer Portal on January 6, 2022.

The updated Mitigation Utility package (Critical Security Update Log4j Remediation now contains additional steps that must be performed on your Web server(s). Please download this updated package from the Synergis Software Customer Portal. The instructions are updated (beginning on page 6), and the new ZIP file includes version-specific DLLs you will use to apply the additional steps required on your web servers. Again, you must perform these further mitigation steps to remediate Log4J vulnerabilities on your network whether your Adept environment(s) have licensed Adept Web clients or not.

Default File Guide As a User Setting

I have many users requesting the ability to set which File Guide can be the default for them.

    Interesting!  The desktop client remembers the last view used, so I assume this request is for the web client (or the task pane?)  Would it be enough to just remember the last view? 

    Thanks for the input!

    We are using 2019 and the desktop version is not remembering the last view. Even switching between windows, it reverts back to the first view in the list. Something would be nice in the Web Client as well. Anything that refreshes the page causes the FileGuide levels to collapse.

    Hi,  I have to say I'm troubled by your last statement.  I retested 11.02, and all this works fine.  One can switch windows, log in and out, and the desktop always tries to bring you back exactly where you were last.  There is a user option "Reopen windows on login.  Could it be you have that unchecked?  Even with that unchecked, I remember the fileguide view and which leaf you last clicked on.

    perhaps you might want to mention this to helpdesk?  It seems to me that it all should work, so perhaps something else isn't working correctly?

    Sorry it's not working for you.  It should - if it doesn't then report it as a bug....

    Hey Micah, we are still testing the 2019 version; and we do not have this issue in the Desktop client.
    The function is just like Gene describes it. I switched between windows, logged out and logged back in, worked just fine and the FileGuide levels did not collapse.

    I've also seen this issue occasionally in Adept 2019 with the File Guide defaulting to 'Last Owner, Active date'. I can set it back to our custom one and it will work for a while and then suddenly it defaults back again.

    From some testing I’ve just done it appears that after setting the File Guide to our custom one, if I change to the Search and Work Area tabs and go back to the File Guide tab it remembers to display my custom one. If after setting my custom file guide I change to Favourites, Inbox or Library Browser and the go back to the File Guide that it then defaults back to ‘Last Owner, Active date'.

    Circling back to this as someone else asked me about it. We are currently running 2019.1 and the same bug carried over from 2019 exactly as @Andrew.Hallas described. @Gene.Sewell did you get this result or should we still report it?
