What’s new in 2.6?

Records Management
2.6 Patch Releases

Changes to support AWS Signature Version 4
Retention Policy : Criteria Fields and Operators

Criteria fields are limited to fields that are likely to be used as criteria in a retention policy.

Operator and Field lists are now dependent in the criteria. There is no less than/greater than option if it does not make sense to use with a field in Field list.

Retention Policy Email

Retention policy notification email is updated with an inclusion of the Org ID to be more informative.

Bug fixes and performance enhancements
Files that are under legal hold can be seen under legal hold files section.



Search functionality is now available for file activities.




Release 2.6 contains features to enhance a complete Records Management life-cycle, allowing more control over modifying, maintaining and disposing of records.

Check-in/Check-out: Allows users to check out files, locking them so no one else can modify them, and then check them back in after changes are made. This feature allows for a proper version control mechanism.

Legal Hold: Files on legal hold are locked, preventing changes. Legal hold enables organizations to maintain and preserve records for litigation or regulatory purposes.

Retention Policy: Organizations can now configure retention policies to automatically dispose of files after a certain period of time. This allows for cleanup of clutter, better use of storage space, and minimizes exposure of files in the event of a security breach.

File Activities: Give more control over analytics. Tracks user activities on files, such as download, open, file lock activities (check-in/out, legal hold), etc.

For more information please refer to S-Drive User Guide and S-Drive Admin Guide 2.6.
