This document details the Beta release of our Enterprise Dispatch Module (EDM) 6.4 as part of the Field2Base Integration Suite.
- Update the EDM Installer to Preserve Customer Files and Settings during the Upgrade Process [EDM-22]
Custom EDM configuration such as e-mail alert settings can be preserved during upgrades by putting them in a separate config.xml file. Custom EDM service configuration such as changing the Windows account for the service will be retained in the future when upgrading from EDM 6.4.4 or later.
- Add Automated Update Process to the EDM [EDM-21]
The EDM Service Admin automatically checks for updates and gives the user the option to install the latest version if necessary.
- Create Kill Switch for EDM [EDM-20]
EDM installations must be activated by a company administrator with the company API key. This allows better remote management of EDM installations including suspending and disabling installations that should not be active.
