Cloud Drive Mapper v2.9.4 (Minor Release)

“What’s in this release?”
Cloud Drive Mapper 2.9.4 follows the 2.9 and 2.9.3 releases with a few additional minor improvements and added features.

“Do we need to update?”
No, not unless your organization is currently experiencing and issue that has been fixed in this release, or if you would like to use some of the new features.

Important – please read before updating:

  1. For customers upgrading from CDM versions below 2.8: You will need to go through the full AAD enterprise app approval workflow (see knowledge base article) before you can update to the new version.
  2. EnableAdvanceMode – the option that meant the local CDM client would talk to the ‘Advanced Mode’ AAD Enterprise Application has now become the default behaviour. This means you no longer need to add a registry setting here. However conversely, if you are using CDM Standard Mode (the reduced-permissions AAD app) you’ll now need to ensure you’re using our new MASTERSETTINGS key (see article) with ‘1’ included in the bitmask value.
  3. If you are upgrading from versions below 2.9, please make sure you are familiar with the 2.9 changes and 2.9.3 changes as well as the details below before upgrading.
