Service Enhancements – August 2018

Changes/updates since last Blue Top

  • July 16: An issue with report page navigation within the Reports Portal was fixed. The issue was due to a change included in Release 13 (pushed weekend of June 30) where the page navigation did not work correctly for reports of multiple pages. This has been fixed.
     
  • July 23: New installers for LA (v4.5) and MCUs (v1.4) were posted on the USAccess SFTP server. MCU updates should not be made until the weekend of August 18-19 to coincide with Release 13.0.5. An LA and MCU installer release is posted on the Agency Lead Portal. See article for more details.
     
  • August 4-5: Monthly maintenance was completed as scheduled.
     
  • August 6: A new file to apply to MCUs, LA and LCS kits was posted on the USAccess SFTP Server. Agencies should deploy this update as soon as possible, as the backend change to remove TLS 1.0 support will be removed the weekend of August 18-19. See article for more details.

    **Updated on August 28**

    The new GSA Scheduling System, which will replace the current Time Trade/GSA Online Scheduling System and was discussed in an earlier version of this update, has been postponed and is no longer included in Release 13.2. This is to allow more time for development and training of role holders. An updated date for the new scheduling system will be communicated once finalized. No other CRs were removed from Release 13.2. However, a new help desk report will be added to the Reports Portal in this release. The updated notice has been posted to the Agency Lead Portal and was emailed to Agency Leads.
     

  • October 6-7: USAccess Release 14.0 is currently scheduled for this weekend. This release includes an update to the CMS system that will enable support for v8 cardstock. Please plan for the USAccess service to be unavailable from 5:30 a.m. ET on Saturday, October 6 through 11:59 p.m. ET on Sunday, October 7.

Please be aware that planned maintenance periods can sometimes result in unanticipated delays in service. Please assure that system s are operable prior to your first appointment following a maintenance weekend. We will notify you of unanticipated delays.
