ShareFile User Management Tool (UMT) 1.11 is now available for download: https://www.citrix.com/downloads/sharefile/product-software/sharefile-user-management-tool-19.html

Note, UMT 1.11 requires Policy-based Administration (PBA) to be enabled on your account. You can learn more about PBA here.

What's new? 
  • UMT Log roll-up 
    • Going forward, every time the UMT runs, we zip all (any un-zipped) daily folders except the current day's folder and delete any zipped logs older than 7 days (default).
      • The retention period can be controlled via a registry key: 
        • You need to create a String Value called NumberOfDaysToRetainZip under HKCU\Software\Citrix\ShareFile\UMT\ and add a Data entry of the number of days you want. For example, if you wanted the logs to last for 14 days, the registry key would look like the below:

  • Added the ability to re-link users in your ShareFile account. When creating a user in ShareFile via the User Management Tool (UMT), we are adding a specific AD GUID to the ShareFile users and ShareFile Distribution Groups which 'links' that user/group to Active Directory (AD). This GUID is used as the anchor so that if a user's information, such as their name or email address, is changed AD, then we update it in ShareFile. However, in a few scenarios, such as changing domains where your existing 'AD linked' ShareFile user/group is created as a new user/group in the new domain, you would need to re-link the user/group via the UMT. More details on how this flow works can be found here: https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/sharefile-user-management-tool/policy-based-administration/relink-users.html
  • To match ongoing support changes, we have removed the support@sharefile.com email address under the UMT help menu and instead replaced with:
  • Added an additional check when 'linking' a user via the UMT. We are now checking to see if the email address matches in AD compared to the user in ShareFile, as well as whether or not the AD GUID in AD matches the user in ShareFile. If there the AD GUID matches, then we know it's the same user. If it doesn't we will fail on the user creation because it’s a different user and you can't have two users in ShareFile with the same email address.
