Issue ID Description Build number
EDGEUI-28

User session not destroyed when user logs out of Edge UI

When a user logs out of the Edge UI, the session cookie for the user is deleted. However, while the user is logged in, malware or other malicious software running on the user's system could obtain the cookie and use it to access the Edge UI.
You can configure the Edge UI to store information about current sessions in server memory. When the user logs out, their session information is deleted, preventing another user from using the cookie to access the Edge UI. See Configure the Edge UI to store session information in memory for more.

Can now set rules for auto generating passwords in the Edge UI

The Edge UI auto generates user passwords for new users. Users are typically then sent an email that allows them to change the auto generated password. You can now set the rules used to create these passwords. See Configure rules used to auto generate Edge UI passwords for more.
