Microsoft Social Engagement 2018 Update 1.6 is ready and will be released in June 2018. This article describes the features, fixes, and other changes that are included in this update.
Microsoft Social Engagement 2018 Update 1.6 introduces the following features:
When an administrator assigns a Social Engagement license to a user, this user will get Power Analyst and Responder permissions. This enables users to create search topics and engage in conversations with other authors. Administrators can change the permissions at any time according to their business requirements.
On June 16, 2018, Social Engagement will reduce the retention time of Social Content to 15 months. This means that posts older than 15 months won’t be available in your Social Engagement solution anymore. If you need to keep track of older data for reporting purposes, you can export the data before it gets deleted automatically.
The Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol is most widely recognized as the protocol that provides secure HTTP (HTTPS) for connections between web browsers and web servers. The TLS 1.0 protocol version was defined in 1999. While no longer the default security protocol in use by modern operating systems, TLS 1.0 is still supported for backward compatibility. The same applies for TLS 1.1. Social Engagement will remove the support of TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 in order to align with Microsoft compliance requirements and security best practices.
After Social Engagement disables TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1, any connections to the service that rely on those versions will fail.
We recommend switching to a browser supporting TLS 1.2. All major browser (Edge, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera) releases after April 2016 support TLS 1.2.
TLS 1.2 support at Microsoft
