The web console generally responds faster than the legacy console. The following features are available only in the web console.

  • Scripted tasks

  • Triggers

  • Configure Windows GPOs by using Group Policy Administrative Templates

  • Insights

  • Save a backup of a configuration set automatically and more.

For more information, see Web console.

Enhanced WEM agent event logging

We have made enhancements to WEM agent event logging, aiming at improving troubleshooting capabilities. The enhancements include:

  • Comprehensive event logs: We have provided comprehensive event logs, giving you a complete picture of agent activities.

  • Unique event IDs: Each event log now has a distinct ID, making it easier for you to filter and identify specific events.

For more information, see Agent event logs.

Microsoft Edge browser support for WEM Transformer

The WEM Transformer now supports the latest version of the Microsoft Edge browser.

Enhancements to CPU spike protection

This release introduces enhancements to the CPU spike protection feature, giving you more granular control. The enhancements include the following changes:

  • We have reorganized CPU spike protection options with intuitive logic for easier configuration, which applies only to the WEM Web console.

  • When customizing CPU spike protection, you can now configure the CPU usage limit using non-integer values. This configuration applies to both legacy and the web console.

  • A new option, Set limit relative to single CPU core, is now available and applicable to the web console, letting you set a limit on CPU usage based on a single CPU core as a reference.

For more information, see CPU spike protection option.

WiX support for WEM AdminConsole and Infrastructure installers

Citrix is offering WiX-based installers for the infrastructure services and administration console. The new installers include changes to the .Net framework, installation path, service name, event log name, parameters, and more.

Dynamic token support for Group Policy settings

You can now use dynamic tokens in Group Policy settings. This feature allows for more adaptable policy configuration in different environments, reduces manual configuration, and simplifies policy management. For more information, see Dynamic token support for Group Policy settings.
