21.3.0 ‘Voyager’ released

Changes compared to 21.2.1

 

General Changes

– The top-level administrator user accounts can now only log in to the Comet Server web interface at a non-Organization URL

 

New Features

– Feature: Support suspending an Organization

This has the effect of preventing all that organizations’ admin accounts and users from signing-in to the software. It’s useful to temporarily disable one of your resellers who haven’t paid their bill. // Link to Documentation

 

– Feature: Support advanced search queries when restoring files in the Comet Backup desktop app

You have long since been able to search by name, file size, and file modification time through your backed-up files. But now you can combine clauses, use AND/OR, brackets, regex search, starts-with/ends-with/contains, and much more with the power of the full query system.

This also plays into the enhancement: “Allow searching for backed-up files by object type, such as symlink / block device / EFS-encrypted file in the Comet Backup desktop app”. Often, users would discover they had backed up an EFS-encrypted file, but not know exactly where on their PC it was found from.

 

– Feature: Allow multiple admin users to have the same username if they belong to different Organizations

This allows “admin” to mean different accounts if they log in via a different Organization.

 

Enhancements

– Enhancement: Allow searching for backed-up files by object type, such as symlink / block device / EFS-encrypted file in the Comet Backup desktop app

– Enhancement: Compress older backup job logs inside the comet-jobs.db3 file, reducing file size

– Enhancement: Minor performance improvement for the Comet Backup desktop app

– Enhancement: Cosmetic redesign the SSH tunnel popup for MongoDB Protected Items to use standard Property Sheet style
