New setup wizard. The process of configuring the UDS components is now easier and more flexible, since it is done through a web environment.
Certificate installation improvements. They can be loaded directly into the UDS components from the new web configuration wizard, without using the command console.
Proxmox compatibility. Support has been added for this virtualization platform.
Support for Microsoft Hyper-V in cluster. New connector that allows connection with hosts in standalone mode or that are part of a cluster for Windows Server versions supported by Microsoft.
Advanced functionalities in RDS. UDS now allows to automate the creation of mapping users on an Active Directory server, simplifying this task as much as possible.
Compatibility with the latest versions and new configuration options for all supported service providers.
- Improvements in the display of authenticators. Now you can show or hide any authenticator in the dropdown menu of the UDS Enterprise login portal.
- New features for Windows Domain. Full support for SSL connections with Active Directory servers.
The use of this section is now much more intuitive, thanks to the fragmentation of its content into two different sections: "Transports" and "Networks".
In RDP and RDS transports, you can specify which units of the connection client can be redirected to the virtual desktop.
The content of this section has also been divided into different sections: "Service Pools", "Meta Pools", "Groups", "Calendars" and "Accounts".
New options in Service Pools: New data available in the main window of the Service Pools that allow monitoring their use. Possibility of manually assigning a “Static IP machines” service to a specific user. Option to lay out a custom message to be displayed when access is denied to a service that is not available in a certain time slot established through a calendar.
Meta Pools. This new element allows the grouping of several Service Pools. It works as a single group, so it will deliver services hosted in different Service Pools in a completely transparent way to the user. Different usage policies can be established for each user or group of users.
Accounts. Thanks to this new element it is possible to view and generate reports on usage sessions in specific Service Pools.
- Actor Tokens. This new element allows to visualize all the connections made between the UDS Actor installed in the templates and the UDS Server. In addition, it enables the monitoring of specific configurations applied to each Actor: scripts, log level, user used in the Actor's registry...
These are just the main new features added to UDS Enterprise 3.0. Many of them have been implemented in response to requests made by partners, clients and members of our community. Solid security and encryption measures also stand out from the long list of improvements, such as secure client access through the use of digital signatures
