Plantronics Hub (client software)
Please see the Plantronics Hub Release Notes for detailed information on newly added Plantronics Hub features and newly supported softphones and devices.  Some Plantronics Hub features may be included in this document if/when they have a direct impact to enterprise deployments and functionality.

Resolved Issues
 
  • Added back support for the CIPC IP Communicator plugin so that it can be managed by an enterprise administrator.
  • Added missing LDAP User attributes to new reporting datasets.  Attributes now available via API.

  • Fixed issue with filtering not working correctly in the Softphone Adoption report.
  • Added missing products to the filter in the Acoustic Events report. 
  • Fixed issue with using Next/Prev to page through device inventory in quick succession causing the application to freeze. 
  • Fixed problem with data not being shown in the Software Policy Compliance report when no software policy has been created. 
  • Miscellaneous UI fixes.

Known Issues
  • After upgrading to Jaspersoft 6.4 (report server) – the way that times are shown in reports changed to show the offset from GMT, instead of the local timezone that was previously shown, e.g:      Before upgrade:      11-07-2017|09:00 PST     After upgrade:        11-07-2017|09:00 -08:00

  • Turning off group auto-creation not showing up in audit log
  • Scrollbar not present when creating an LDAP User Attribute group with more than 9 attributes

Plantronics Manager Pro Release Notes 3.14

July 29, 2019: Plantronics Manager Pro 3.14

What's New
General

Plantronics Hub
  • Plantronics Hub | Softphone End of Life
    • Some softphones will no longer be supported with Plantronics Hub 3.14.  Details can be found in this knowledge base article.  The following functionality will no longer be available for these deprecated softphones:  Call control, mute, volume synch and the generation of call data for Plantronics Manager Pro reports.  If you are using one of these softphones, do not upgrade and instead remain on Plantronics Hub 3.13 or prior to ensure functionality. To better understand the impact to data generation for these deprecated softphones, please see Plantronics Manager Pro area below.
       
Plantronics Manager Pro
  • Softphone End of Life
    • The deprecated softphones will no longer appear in the list of softphones available for management.  The enable/disable functionality will no longer be available for these softphones in the Plantronics Manager Pro interface.  These softphones will continue to be manageable by the end user in versions of Plantronics Hub prior to 3.14.
    • Usage data for deprecated softphones will no longer be sent to PMP once the client is updated to Plantronics Hub 3.14.  Versions prior to 3.14 will continue to send this data.
  • Status Page for Plantronics Manager Pro is now available:  https://status.plantronics.com
  • Plantronics Manager/Pro > Support Page
    • This has been updated to include a link to our status page.  An email address has also been made available for feedback and enhancement requests.

    • The left nav font size has been increased as a result of feedback from users.
  • Version Status Report
    • Software
      • Issue:  Report was counting the number of user profiles (vs number of hosts).  Although technically accurate, this was confusing as the total count in the report did not match the total count of “hosts” as found in the Plantronics Manager Pro UI. 
      • Resolution:   Improvements were made to the Software Version status report to show information based on hosts rather than users.  The following changes were made:
        • Report is now“host” based verses “user profile” based
        • Added “Hosts” filter
        • Removed “All OS” as default; Windows set as new default
        •  
    • Firmware
      • Issue:  Current report is not very user friendly if tenant has multiple products.
      • Resolution: Create new top-level report at the Family level allowing user to drill into the family for product level information.
  • Performance Improvements:  Made improvements in general page loading as well as report responsiveness.

Resolved Issues
  • 404 page received when creating new firmware policies if 90 plus policies already exist
  • Mass deletion (over 10K items) dialog box indicates 10k “users” being deleted even if it is devices or hosts
  • Improvements to speed up page loading
  • Address performance issues with mass delete of large numbers of non-plt devices.
  • Clicking on Active Policy link now takes you to expanded device policy.    
  • Added custom pagination to tabular reports to improve performance on large tenants.

What's New  
Plantronics Hub
  • Plantronics Hub | Connection Details (Plantronics Hub > Support)
    • Hostname added to list of connection details providing IT with the ability to identify a specific computer even when anonymization has been enabled.
       
Plantronics Manager Pro
  • UI | Changes to naming and arrangement of some sections in Admin > Plantronics Hub
    • Sections arranged to make more often used selections easier to find.
    • Renamed LDAP User Attributes to User Data.
  • Pseudonymization Feature Added to Prevent Collection of Username and Hostname
    • Starting with 3.13, the Username and Hostname (two required pieces of personal data) will be encrypted by default. 
      • Pseudonymization happens at the client; real username and hostname does not leave company network.
      • Using SHA-512 for hash algorithm
      • Pseudonymization can be disabled by IT before or after the deployment of Plantronics Hub.  Plantronics Hub will recognize the change during the next polling cycle and will then start to send the real values.  This will result in some usernames showing the real value and some the hashed value until all clients have checked in.
      • Pseudonymized values are still unique to the user and/or host ensuring maximum value from the product.
  • LDAP User Attribues | Admin > Plantronics Hub > User Data
    • Functionality to enable the collection of additional user attributes initially added in 3.12.  The list of available attributes has been extended in 3.13 to include user specific attributes such as firstname, lastname, email, employeeID, extension attributes 1-15, etc.
    • Attributes added to User Profile and available via API
  • Plantronics Manager Pro timeout reduced to 30 minutes
    • Timeout previously set to one hour but has been reduced to 30 minutes of inactivity to comply with more stringent security protocols.
  • Microsoft plugin support was extended to include MS Teams.
    • Microsoft Teams call data available listed as “Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business and Lync” in UI
  • Add User Attributes to user data in all reporting datasets making any added User Attributes available via API
  • Applications menu option area renamed to App Center; functionality expanded
    • Private area for customers to discover apps and extend Plantronics Manager Pro
    • Public area for solution providers to showcase their apps and reach new audiences

Data Insights
  • No new reports have been added or significant modifications made to any existing reports in this release  
 
Resolved Issues
  • Fixed multiple issues related to reports not working on tenants with large numbers of devices and users.
  • Improved speed of page loading
  • Fixed issues with mass delete operations failing with large numbers of users.  Mass delete operations will now be limited to deleting 10K entries in a single action.
  • Modified reports that were incorrectly showing “null” for device serial numbers instead of ‘-‘.
  • Scheduled report runs were missing from the audit log.
  • Added email address validation on Forgot Password form.
  • Fixed missing tooltips.
  • Miscellaneous report and UX cleanup.
  • Fixed issues with filters not working correctly with specific browsers.
  • Hide features that are not applicable to read-only administrators.
  • PMP crashes when in Inventory > Groups when a user switches from 10 to 100 results when more than 400 groups have been created.  New pagination implemented resolving issue
  • My HSS feature setting value not being applied in Plantronics Hub.  Issue was a result of moving the setting from software policy to Application Center
Known Issues
  • Plantronics Manager:  Cannot update Plantronics Hub 3.12 clients to 3.13 by using software policy in the Plantronics Manager solution. Customer must remove Plantronics Hub 3.12 and then deploy Plantronics Hub 3.13 using their own deployment tools.
  • Report timestamps have changed following update in reporting engine application (outside vendor).  We previously displayed the local time zone but time now shows the offset from GMT.  This has been researched and cannot be resolved per the vendor.
  • Device Distribution failing on tenants with > 100K users
  • All Active Devices sometimes doesn’t show and doesn’t count all “other manufacturer” devices when more than 1000 “other manufacturer” devices are present.
  • There are still issues with specific reports not completing or performing slowly on tenants with large numbers of users (e.g. more than a hundred thousand).
  • If multiple headset products are used in the same call, report results could be misleading.   For example, the Link Quality report may show non-Bluetooth devices if both Bluetooth and non-Bluetooth devices are used in the call.
  • Minor UX issues still remaining in reports and the UX – e.g. missing border or items misaligned.
  • Plantronics device count inconsistent between UI (Inventory > Plantronics) and Device Inventory report (Reports > Device Inventory > Plantronics).   
  • Turning off group auto-creation not showing up in audit log
  • Scrollbar not present when creating an LDAP User Attribute group with more than 9 attributes
  • On the Blackwire 7225, in Plantronics Manager Pro settings, the Mute Reminder descriptor does not appear.
  • Soundscaping setting not preserved during migration.  For customers who have a license for Soundscaping and have enabled Personal Soundscaping for their end users, they will need to re-enable this feature.  The setting has moved to the new App Center in Plantronics Manager Pro.  IT is asked to access App Center, locate the Soundscaping setting and re-enable the feature after the upgrade to 3.13.
