Versioning information added to Duo Admin Panel

  • The sidebar of the Admin Panel will now display a version number for Duo’s core product functionality (the category “Core Authentication Service” covers the Duo Admin API, Duo Auth API, Duo Prompt, and other core authentication services that power integrations) and for the Admin Panel itself.
  • This number will follow the format of the letter D for Duo plus a major release number, followed by a decimal point and a build number. Build numbers may increment before the next major release, such as in the case of bug fixes being released.
  • You can also now find a link to Duo’s release notes below the version numbers in the Admin Panel.

PagerDuty added as a new integration for Duo Single Sign-On

New and updated applications

Duo Mobile for Android version 3.50.0 and 3.51.0 released

  • Various behind-the-scenes improvements and minor bug fixes to enhance your authentication experience.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug that caused the message “Unknown Error” to appear in the Duo Prompt when an end-user attempted to reactivate a device with no associated phone number via the Self-Service Portal or Device Management Portal.
  • The country or region selected when a customer’s first Duo administrator account is created will no longer be used to set the Admin Panel’s default date and time. The selected country or region also will no longer be used as the default country for end-users adding a new phone. The UI message that appears when setting up the admin account now clarifies that the country or region information is required for GDPR.
  • Fixed a bug that caused an error when changing an Owner-role administrator to a non-Owner role if the edit was made through a stale request, such as if the administrator account edit page was opened in two browser tabs at the same time.
  • Fixed an issue where users with invalid emails were not removed as part of the inactive user expiration process.
  • Fixed a bug where users in Active or Bypass status could be assigned a status of Locked Out via CSV import.
  • Fixed a bug with administrator activation records that caused administrators in certain cases to see the message “You have not finished the setup process” when attempting to log in to the Admin Panel even though their accounts had been set up. This bug also sometimes caused the message “Activation link already exists for admin” to appear when a Duo administrator was creating a new admin account.
