UMT360 v5.13 – Product Update 13

Written by admin on May 31st, 2019 at 7:46 am

We’re pleased to announce the availability of UMT360 v5.13 – Product Update 13 (PU13). Product Updates include all previously released public updates and private hotfixes. We strongly recommend that any patch and release is validated in a non-production environment first before being applied to production environments.

UMT360 v5.13 adds support for the Office365 Modern Authentication method when integrating with Project Online, in addition to the existing Legacy Authentication option. Modern Authentication offers more secure user authentication and authorization. We will continue to support both Legacy and Modern authentication going forward.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If your organization is using Project Online, you are required to complete a one-time configuration change to mappings between Project Online Project Detail Pages and UMT360 Forms.  Please see below for an overview of the configuration changes that need to be applied to each UMT360 instance. Additional information is included with the user documentation available for download through the Customer Portal

  • Step 1: Go to UMT360 Settings – Manage UMT360 Form Mappings admin page and re-create the mappings between Project Online PDPs and UMT360 Forms
  • Step 2: Go to Project Online and add a Content Editor web part to each PDP that does not require a mapping with UMT360 Forms
  • Step 3: Link each Content Editor web part to the UMT360FormMappings.js file located in the UMT360 Connector folder from the Project Online site (for example: /sites/pwa/UMT360 Connector/UMT360FormMappings.js)
