SGOS 184.108.40.206 introduces the following new features:
Web Visual Policy Manager
This release includes the new Web Visual Policy Manager (VPM). The Web VPM allows you to manage your organization's policies in a redesigned web-based interface. The improved experience of writing and installing policy includes:
Re-organized and modern look-and-feel in an easy-to-read browser tab
Ability to compare current policy with deployed policy before saving changes
Ability to identify and locate all conditions and actions in both generated and current policy
The legacy VPM is still available. Changes to policy using either VPM persist and are reflected in both VPM instances (except in cases of downgrades).
Google Chrome 60.0.3112 and later
Mozilla Firefox 57 and later
Microsoft Edge 42.17134 and later
Safari 10.1.2 and later
Note: Microsoft Internet Explorer is not supported. If Internet Explorer is your default browser (or if you use a supported browser that launches the VPM in Internet Explorer), you can right-click and copy the Visual Policy Manager link at the top right of the Management Console. Then, paste the URL into a supported browser.
