Knox E-FOTA portal updates
Pre-approved access to Knox E-FOTA
Customers who have an activated Knox Configure or Knox Mobile Enrollment account are now pre-approved for access to Knox E-FOTA. That is, they do not need to apply for access to Knox E-FOTA; they can open the Knox E-FOTA portal by going to their SamsungKnox.com dashboard and clicking Launch on the Knox E-FOTA card.
Closing the Knox E-FOTA client app
The Knox E-FOTA client app can now be closed. In cases where the client app was recently used and the user closes all recent apps on the device, the error message Security policy restricts you from stopping this application no longer appears. When the client app is closed, it still communicates properly with the Knox E-FOTA server. For example, it still polls the server regularly and counts how many times an device user postpones an update.
Default values during campaign creation
Default values have been set on the campaign creation screen to minimize the number of clicks the user needs to make to create a campaign.
Validation for the firmware installation period
During campaign creation, values that are entered for the firmware installation period are now validated. The values entered are auto-corrected (if needed) to pass validation. The firmware installation period must be no shorter than 3 hours.
Knox Manage login screen
The URL of your Knox Manage admin portal is now required when connecting Knox E-FOTA to Knox Manage.
Knox E-FOTA client updates
Automatic client app updates
The Knox E-FOTA client app now checks for updates and automatically installs them (if available) whenever the app is launched.
Knox E-FOTA portal
Previously, when a user customized a table to add or remove columns, their changes were only applied to their current login session. The next time they logged in to the Knox E-FOTA admin portal, the table would have only the default columns. This has been resolved. A customized table now retains the columns the user has previously set.
Displaying the firmware list for device model SM-T540
Previously, the Knox E-FOTA admin portal failed to display the firmware list for the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active Pro (Wi-Fi) (SM-T540). This has been resolved. The firmware list for SM-T540 now appears during campaign creation.
Knox E-FOTA client
Insufficient storage warning
Previously, the client app would show an insufficient storage warning even when there is enough storage left to support the size of the firmware update. This has been resolved.Back to release notes
