Software Releases

TrakaWEB Release 3.15

Released: 26th November 2021

Major New Features

  • SQL Lite Database in TT 

    We have migrated the underlying database on the Touch devices away from Microsoft SQL Compact Edition v3.5, to a new database technology, SQLite, improving the efficiency of the database and ensuring it supports the growing needs of the Touch application.

  • Allowance across systems  

    You can now restrict the number of items of a particular type that a user can take at any one time to a pre-set limit - across a number of FIFO-based systems, ensuring that users cannot abuse the system and gain access to more than their permitted allowance of items across their network. 

System Improvements

  • Increased & configurable granularity in user permissions

    Extended granularity of user permissions, so users can be given a more restricted set of permissions. We also introduced two new permissions for User Admin and Items Admin, so you have much more control about each individual actions a user can perform. Admin users no longer have automatic access to all areas and their roles can be better defined through the permissions they are assigned. 

  • Concurrent locker door access

    Enable locker users to log in one after the other without having to wait for the previous user to collect or return their item(s) and complete their transactions, reducing waiting times for users to get access to their item(s). 

  • Multiple alarm outputs per relay

    Extended number of alarm type events that can now be linked to a single relay output. Multiple events of a similar nature can trigger an output. E.g. a tamper event output can be triggered by any of the following events: Panel Open, Door Open Manually, Wall Tamper Open or Receptor Panel Open. 

    You can group alarm events into types of alerts such as showing the system is not performing optimally (e.g. low battery), warnings about potential issues (e.g. low memory, iFob not recognised) or abuse warnings (e.g. pod open, panel open).  

  • Accommodate the absence of refresh tokens in an Open ID Connect implementation 

    Enable a user to remain logged into TrakaWEB until they choose to log out, without having to refresh tokens when using Open ID Connect authentication, enabling the user to continue working uninterrupted without having to reconnect, yet remain secure on an Open ID Connect authenticated environment. 

Integrations and API Enhancements

  • Enhanced CLIQ integration

    Enhancement to the existing integration with the Assa Abloy CLIQ system, improving the way changes are tracked and shared and how the API calls work, providing greater versatility in how the integration can be configured.  

  • Maintaining cardholder’s prior access rights after asset return 

    Enhanced integration with OnGuard OpenAccess API, to ensure that a cardholder’s prior access rights are restored once a user returns an item for which they were granted temporary elevated access rights - allowing you to grant users temporary access to items to which they would not normally have access, without requiring further manual intervention. 

  • Common Item Access Group support in the Integration Engine 

    New support for Common Item Access Groups within the Integration Engine – for integrations with other systems, enables you to control access rights to groups of items from within the native access control system and for those rights to automatically be shared with the TrakaWEB/Touch environment - rather than having to be manually set up in both systems. 

 

TrakaWEB 3.14

Released: 20th August 2021

TrakaWEB 3.14, includes a mix of major, minor and customer requested specific features.

Major New Features

  • Advanced First In First Out (FIFO) on Key Cabinets

    Allow authorized users to select more than one type of item in the same key cabinet, and only take out up to the permitted allowance for each Item type. This feature also ensures a fairer and more proportionate use of assets such as vehicles and plant and machinery, maximizing efficiency of usage and service intervals.
  • Introduction of Scheduled Reports

    Simplifies and automates the process of creating and sharing targeted management information to multiple recipients from within TrakaWEB to a schedule, freeing up valuable time from doing repetitive tasks and ensuring information reaches managers on time every time, without requiring human intervention.
  • Temporary Key Store

    Enable a user to remove an iFob from a primary cabinet and place it in a nominated temporary key store before entering another location. Useful in locations where it would be inadvisable or against protocol to carry those keys, ensuring user safety is not compromised and enabling compliance with organizational policies or protocols.

System Improvements

  • Item Booking/ Book for Others

    Provides absolute flexibility over how much access you give to users around making bookings and prevents users from being able to make fraudulent bookings for themselves or others, thus preventing abuse of the system or enabling access to equipment or keys that are not relevant.
  • Auto Open All Key Cabinet Doors on Login

    Users can now opt to open all key cabinet doors to which they have access rights at once, rather than manually selecting each door they wish to open, saving time each time they visit the Touch device.
  • Extend Vault Pairing to 6 Pairs

    Split up large bunches of keys and spread them across more “Vault Pairs”, making smaller bunches that are easier to handle and manage.
  • Unified Installer

    More easily perform an installation of TrakaWEB or its individual component parts with a simple-to-use Setup Wizard, providing greater flexibility in what you choose to install.
  • Updated Time / Date Controls on Traka Touch

    More quickly and easily alter the date, time and time zone settings on the Traka Touch device using slider-based Setting Controls similar to those on a mobile phone.
  • IPv6 support for Traka Touch & 16-bit systems

    Supporting the use of Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) addresses across the TrakaWEB and Touch system (as well as 16-bit systems) including: the Communications, Business and Integration Engine, Systems Settings in the Admin app and the Network Administration Settings on Traka Touch.
  • SNMPv2 support on Traka Touch

    We now provide increased security and assurance for communication between devices, with support for the use of SNMPv2 with Traka Touch systems running OS v4.4 and above for iMX28 systems and OS v5.4 for iMX6 systems. 
  • Improved differentiation of certain iFob position icons on Traka Touch
    User interface improvements to make the difference between curfew, status and fault status icons clearer and easier to understand for all users including color blind and sight-impaired users.

Integrations and API Enhancements

  • Exposing the ‘Distance’ and ‘Fuel Level’ event data via the Integration API

    This functionality extends the Event Data items that are exposed via the API to include: Distance (trip), Distance (total) and Fuel Level (%). This ensures this data can be shared with other applications such as HR and fleet management systems.
  • Edit Item Bookings via API

    More quickly and easily update live Item Bookings directly from within your integrated HR, Access Control or Security system, rather than logging into TrakaWEB to action this change.
  • Cardholder Card Selection in Symmetry Integration

    For users with multiple Symmetry access cards, the integration with Symmetry will now import the newest card number - by checking the Active Date. This will save significant time by preventing the manual deletion of older card records.
  • Select badge based on Issue Code in OnGuard Integration

    Have greater choice and control over which credentials are used to determine which users you will import, by now being able to select a card based on its issue code.
