ShareFile User Management Tool (UMT) 1.10 is now available for download:

Note, UMT 1.10 requires Policy-based Administration (PBA) to be enabled on your account. You can learn more about PBA here.

What's New
  • We consolidated the User and Groups tab into one tab as well as modified the Rule created flow to improve ease of use.
    • The User and Groups tab was consolidated into a 'Search' tab.

    • When creating a rule, you now have the option to specify whether the rule is a User Rule, Group Rule or Both.

  • An 'Export Actions' button was added to the 'Rules' tab which runs a simulation of the rules and creates a .sim file in the logs.

  • The help text guide on the right of the User Rule creation page was updated to reflect Policy Based Administration
  • A Proxy Configuration link was added to the login page for easy access
  • Quality Improvements:
    • We now handle groups with ":" in their name correctly
    • Optimized how we look up Client Users when loading the UMT - note the lookup is required to see which users should be upgraded to Employee Users based on the AD OU/Group membership
    • An AD Group with a circular references previously caused a stack overflow
    • In some cases, a user was being removed from their ShareFile Distribution List if he/she was not also in a corresponding User Rule.
    • Previously to this build, the UMT was able to update permissions of the user running the UMT, which could cause the job to fail depending on the permission 
    • Better error handling when an AD item is deleted but is part of an active UMT Rule.

Yes, currently ShareFile in general can only support 2000 users in a Distribution Group.
