ISL Light - Desktop v4 - Add support for inviting external operators (FEATURE) [ISLLIGHT-5975] More


Support for inviting guest operators was added. Invite/transfer dialogs were also unified and updated. Invite operator dialog was extended with options where invite can be modified: - disable mouse and keyboard - require consent to join from operator - allow guest mode (set invited guest operator name).

 Email and link option are both available in the same dialog. Copy URL works same as before. When "Require consent to join from operator" is set an invited operator is trying to join session, original operator gets prompted by popup if he allows user to join. Original operator can deny or allow join, denying will effectively revoke this invite and action cannot be reverted. Invitations can be created from session window and from session list in the sessions dashboard.

ISL Light can now join sessions through session invites. New command line arguments were introduced:
--join-invite ####: is used to provide session invitation ID to be used
--skip-login: only works in combination with -join-invite and when provided login step will be skipped and waiting/joining to session page is shown, dashboard and some additional functionality is disabled because user is not authenticated.

New user flow was added to ISL Light when --join-invite is provided. User is redirected to waiting screen where he waits for original operator to allow him to join session or session is created automatically when confirmation is not required. Each invite can only be used once, already used invitations will result in error shown on waiting screen, same if the original operator rejects joining.

ISL Light - Desktop v4 - Expose additional session info and handle invited/guest operators (FEATURE) [ISLLIGHT-5985] More


Session invites are now shown in session list. Invites have offline icon and status "Waiting for Operator". Invites are stacked below (hierarchy) original session, same as are all sessions that attached to this session. Hierarchy is flat, only one level. Also connected operator is now shown on active/connected sessions.
IP address is now shown in separate column.
Columns can also be hidden/shown (right click on header of the table) same as in Computers tab.

ISL Light - Desktop v4 - Fix the file transfer state in Eventlog when transfer is cancelled (DEFECT) [ISLLIGHT-6079] More
