Detailed release notes for "February 2023 Release"

This latest release consists of several improvements to the experience when using Azure portal. These improvements are compatible with the GA launch API version ("2022-10-01") and agent versions v1.0.0, v1.0.1, and v1.0.2.


  • Improved the import experience by adding support for actionable notifications with update progress, enabling simplification of the Updates view by removing the dedicated tab for import history.
  • Added the Manage Device Update limits section to the Diagnostics tab. This section details how close your instance is to hitting Device Group and Device Class limits.
  • Added the ability to export Deployment details to a CSV file. This can be done by navigating to the Deployment history tab within a Device Group and selecting View deployment details then clicking Export to CSV.
  • Added the ability to navigate directly to Deployment details after creating a new deployment from Available updates.
  • Added a guided tutorial that walks through creation of an import manifest if one isn't included when importing a new update. This Create manifest tutorial can be accessed by starting a new import and selecting the desired update files from your storage container. If you don't include an import manifest (file with .importmanifest.json extension), the resulting error message contains a hyperlink ("create one") that opens the Import tutorial.
  • Added a hyperlink to the storage container where log files from a successful log operation have been uploaded. This can be accessed by navigating to Log upload operation details and opening the Devices section. Each device that successfully completed the log upload operation should display a hyperlink ("Open storage container") in the Log location field.
