By Chloe Elliott posted 07-27-2020 16:24


8.49.2 has been superseded by 8.49.3

Release date AU/US/EMEA: 2020/07/28

This patch release resolves issues from additional permissions that adversely affected reporting performance and incorrectly hid data. Additionally, an issue to the Baseline Compare report was addressed where relationships were not being included.


Self-hosted organization administrators now have the ability to selectively extend permission checking for specific custom reports.
