Urgent Upgrade Notice V47-Android Auth app June 21, 2024

The Cloudwork Operations team advise of a critical upgrade affecting the Cloudwork Android authenticator app(both the generic version and the school branded version).

On the 21st June 2024, Google are deprecating the Android push notification APIs currently used in Cloudwork V46(and previous). Cloudwork's V47 supports the new Google APIs. If you are using the Android version of our app, the upgrade needs to be deployed to your school by 21/6/2024.

We need to schedule in a time slot to upgrade your school to the latest Cloudwork V47 in order to continue supporting push notifications in Android. (Please note that even if you do not receive the notification, you can still open the app on your phone after being prompted in the browser to complete authentication).

Please send an email to advising us of your preferred date and time for completing the deploy of V47. This will create a ticket which you can use to monitor the progress of this task.

Thank you for your assistance in completing this critical task.

Social Media Sign On - Cloudwork v46 Release Notes


Cloudwork® v46 Release Notes

New Features

  • Social Media Sign Ons

    • Added the ability to enable and configure Social Authentication (Log in with Facebook, Microsoft, Google, Apple)

    • Automatic provisioning of accounts permitted to use Social Media Sign Ons

    • Increased security through independent account verification

      OU level granular configurability

  • Adobe syncing

    • Redesigned for greater efficiency and volume handling

    • Increased volume capacity by addressing Adobe API's Rate Limiting Issues, improving Cloudwork's Adobe Sync Processes

    • Able to Sync Cloudwork's Users, Groups and Group members into Adobe for creating, updating and deleting accounts.

    • Improved simplified IT administrator workflow with Cloudwork's Adobe Sync. The Admin no longer needs to manually implement licences to each user in the Adobe Admin Console. Once Cloudwork's Users, Groups and Group Members are synced into Adobe, the Admin will only need to implement a licence profile to a Group within the Adobe Admin Console

    • Automated linking of Adobe accounts into Cloudwork. Cloudwork's Adobe Sync will check for existing Adobe Users, and if the email matches, it will link the Adobe Account to Cloudwork.

    • Suspended Options for Cloudwork Users. The options are to either be removed from the Adobe Organization, removed from the Adobe Organization and delete the account permanently, or ignored.

  • Any changes or updates on a Cloudwork OU or Group regarding Name Changes or Deletions from Cloudwork will be correctly updated in Cloudwork's Adobe configuration. This fixes syncing issues for those OU or Groups that had been updated, which now correctly includes them in the Adobe sync process.
