New Features

  • You can now create a fixed group based on an imported list of VIN numbers

    Previously, when creating a fixed group, you had to laboriously drag and drop each device one by one into the group. Now, you can import a CSV file that contains a list of device IDs for your provisioned devices. When you import the file, OTA Connect compares the list with the currently provisioned devices and sorts the matching devices into the fixed group. This feature works best when you configure your own device IDs such as vehicle-unique VIN numbers.

Functional and Behavioral Changes

  • Made terminology more consistent for renaming things

    The user interface had inconsistent wording for menu items related to renaming things. We’ve cleaned this up so that it’s more obvious when you can rename something.

Resolved Issues

  • In some circumstances, OTA Connect incorrectly displayed a "Never seen online" error message for devices.

    This issue was caused by disruptions in the back end which prevented devices from being provisioned correctly. However, the user interface displayed an inaccurate "Never seen online" message for the device. We’ve fixed this issue, so that the error message indicates that the device was not provisioned properly due to some latency with the back end. This latency should be a rare occurrence and provisioning should work if you try to provision the device a few minutes later.

  • Erroneous devices were being incorrectly displayed in groups

    This issue occurred when you opened a device group in the OTA Connect Portal while a device was in the process of provisioning. The newly provisioned device would show up in the group even if you didn’t put it there. We’ve fixed this issue so that device groups only contain devices that you’ve explicitly specified.
