New Features

Role-Based Access for V2 Control Center Users
The V2 HYPR Control Center now supports user roles that limit access to various features in the UI based on predefined user types. Admins can apply the settings globally or for individual RP Applications. See the Control Center Users page for more information.

API Endpoints for RADIUS Configuration
As a step towards providing centralized configuration, management, and monitoring of RADIUS servers directly via the Control Center, several new endpoints have been added to the HYPR API that make it possible to set up an end-to-end RADIUS integration programatically. Please contact HYPR Support for more information.

Enhancements

Improved Analytics for Security Keys
The HYPR Workforce Access Client for Windows now records additional Audit Trail events for security key logins.

Optimization for Apple M1 Chip
The HYPR Workforce Access Client for macOS has been optimized to run more efficiently on Apple M1-based hardware.

Improved FIDO2 Administration
The HYPR Control Center now displays FIDO2 device de-registration events on the Audit Trail page. In addition, all FIDO2 devices are now removed when a user is deleted via the Control Center.

Logging Improvements
The information logged for registration and authentication events now includes additional details about the device model and OS version. Enhanced error logging for FIDO2 registration and authorization events has also been added.

Configure In-App Log Submission
Admins can now use the Control Center UI to set whether or not users are permitted to directly submit troubleshooting logs from within the HYPR Workforce Access Client and the HYPR Mobile App. See the Workforce Access 7.6.0 UI/UX Updates page for more information.

Include Log Submission Events in the Audit Trail
The Audit Trail now indicates when HYPR users submit troubleshooting logs from within the HYPR Workforce Access Client or the HYPR Mobile App. The event information includes the user's name and the type of client (Windows, macOS, Android, iOS).
