WATS Server release 21.1 will no longer support the existing Silverlight based Software Manager and it will be made unavailable by default from your web application.
A new modern angular based UI - Production Manager - will replace the Silverlight based Software Manager (available in Preview in WATS Server version 20.3).
This has the following impact:
- The Software Manager will not have direct access from the WATS Start page (main menu item), but be implemented as a part of the Control Panel. The new favorites option will allow you to add a shortcut on the Start page.
- All existing functionality should be replaced by the new Production Manager, all though some actions may be performed differently.
- This will have no affect on existing packages or files already uploaded to your WATS account.
- The new Production Manager will merge all managers into one (Workflow/Manual Inspection manager (MES manager), Software Manager)
