To: All Fischer IaaS Customers
Release Date: 8/26/2020
We are pleased to announce that we have officially released the Fischer Identity 7.5.x version of the Fischer product which is packed full with features, including new connectors, improved Administrative capabilities, and the introduction of multiple manager support.
Fischer will apply Fischer version 7.5.3 to your Fischer IaaS test instance beginning next week. With the introduction of the new Multiple Manager feature, minor workflow logic changes were required in your solution in order to accommodate the delivery of the new feature. Our Solution Management team performed the necessary logic changes within both Test (if applicable) and Production environments to proactively prepare for the delivery of the feature.
Please refer to the Maintenance Schedule for release scheduling information.
How will this change impact my organization?
We are confident the workflow logic changes performed by our Solution Management team will ensure a seamless experience. While the changes required were minor, we do encourage you to run through a series of test cases as an additional validation step. We have created a series of test cases below. While some of the product areas in scope of the test cases may not be in use within your solution, we have broken down the recommended test cases applicable to the features affected by this change. You may proceed with the test cases once the release has been applied to your test environment.
