  • Security: upgraded middleware libraries Spring to 6.0.9, Jetty to 11.0.15, and Spring LDAP to 3.1.0.

New RecipeOps trigger

Our RecipeOps connector has a new trigger, “On-prem agent disconnected”. It monitors your chosen on-prem group for agency connectivity issues, so when a network outage is detected or an agent process is killed, your recipe moves into action.
