What issues are resolved in VPC 5.6 Hotfix 72258?

What is the purpose of VPC Hotfix 72258?


Why Install This Hotfix?

This hotfix resolves an issue with Incident Reporting. Before you apply this hotfix, when an anonymous user submits an Incident Report, VigilEnt Policy Center identifies that user by name and IP address in the audit log and event log. After you apply this hotfix, the audit log and event log do not provide any identifiable information for an anonymous user who submits an Incident Report. (ENG286680)

This hotfix also resolves an upgrade issue. Before you apply this hotfix, when you upgrade your environment to VigilEnt Policy Center 5.6, the product displays descriptions of old Incident Reports submitted before the upgrade as if they were encrypted, though new Incident Reports are correctly displayed. After you apply this hotfix, VigilEnt Policy Center displays all Incident Reports correctly. (ENG287811)

This hotfix provides enhancements to the Phone Number and Fax fields on the Incident Reporting window. After you apply this hotfix, you can enter a greater number of characters in these fields than previously allowed. In addition to standard numbers (such as 1, 2, or 3), you can use special characters such as the following: period (.), parentheses, space, forward slash (/), plus sign (+), letters, hyphen (-), asterisk (*), pound sign (#), or tilde (~). If you have any other international symbols available on your phone, you can enter them in these fields also. (ENG276468)
