Solution Manager

✳️ OPCON-23392: OpCon MFT users now have the ability to select an option to “force download” the filtered file or list of files. This ensures that OpCon will always download the specified file(s) at runtime regardless of whether changes have been made to the file or not.

OPCON-17491: Fixed an issue where permissions to view departments were incorrect.

OPCON-23052: Fixed an issue in Visions page where clicking the edit button in the bread crumb was redirecting users to page not found. Users will now be redirected to the correct page to edit the group tag.
