Reboot Required

The 6.14.0 release requires users of the HYPR Workforce Access Client on both Windows and macOS to reboot the workstation.

New Features

Recovery PINs for macOS
Recovery PINs are now available for users who are running the HYPR Workforce Access Client on macOS. The Recovery PIN functionality allows admins to issue temporary access codes for users who are unable to use their mobile device to access the computer. See Recovery PINs for more information.

Enhancements

Show Access Token Expiration Days
The Access Tokens page in the HYPR Control Center now shows the number of days left until expiration when a token has less than 15 days remaining.

Get Registered Users Count
New HYPR API endpoints are now available to return the count of registered users, either in total or for a specific RP application. The numbers are adjusted for users who've paired multiple devices. Please see RP User Statistics in the API Reference for more information.

Improved Password Reset Behavior
HYPR Workforce Access Client users who encounter an expired Windows password error when attempting to log in are now given the opportunity to reset the password before continuing.

Known Issues

API Endpoint Security Activated During Upgrade
When the HYPR Control Center is upgraded from a version earlier than 6.14.0, the API Endpoint Security feature is incorrectly turned on by default. This will prevent user authentication if you havenโ€™t already altered your Workforce Access Client deployment parameters as described here. If youโ€™re not using this feature, HYPR suggests you skip to version 6.14.2 where the issue has been corrected. Please contact HYPR Support if you need more information.
