See the release notes for a full list of changes included in this version

Incoming email via IMAP

TopView can optionally allow incoming email for alarm acknowledge and to request value and alarm reports. In previous versions of TopView, incoming email required a POP3 Server.

This release includes support for IMAP.

Admin Tools: View selected alarm actions

TopView 6.33.1 introduced Alarm Actions logs that record an individual alarm’s activity (active, return to normal, acknowledge) and related notifications and actions taken through notifications.

When viewing alarm information in the application log or alarm log (alarm active, acknowledge, return-to-normal), a button [View selected alarm actions…] will appear. Clicking the button will take the user to the Alarm Actions log for the selected alarm.

Mobile Web App: brute force mitigation, account lockout

After 5 failed attempts to log into an account, subsequent log in attempts will automatically fail until the lockout period of 10 minutes has elapsed.

This behavior can help mitigate brute force attacks upon a specific user account. Lockout affects each user account individually, so a lockout of one account will not prevent other users from logging in. A successful log in will reset the failed attempts count.

SCADA Connect status window

A TopView license may include SCADA Connect. For users with a SCADA Connect license:

  • When starting the Configurator, the SCADA Connect status window will be displayed if the initial SCADA Connect steps have not been completed. These steps include installation of SCADA Connect and installing SCADA Connect for your HMI.
  • The SCADA Connect status window can be displayed by clicking the SCADA Connect status item at the bottom of the Configurator window

Suppress footer in Email/SMS messages

A new option (Global Options>Notification screen) allows the user to suppress the TopView footer in Email and SMS messages for non-expiring purchased license users.
