Titus


Illuminate

Version 2021.1

September 2021

New Features
  • A web-based UI for Cloud Credential Management has been developed to replace TITUS_ICM. Users can now generate a token for SharePoint Online/One Drive, Box for Business, and Dropbox for Business using the Credential Manager tab in the UI. See the Titus Illuminate Deployment Guide for more information.

    NOTE: TITUS_ICM.exe could not get a new token because DropBox.com no longer supports Internet Explorer 11. If you are a new Illuminate user scanning DropBox files or an existing user requiring a new token, you will now use the new web-based UI to get authentication tokens for DropBox and all other supported Cloud credentials.
  • You can use Cloud applications with custom credentials to generate tokens if you are scanning files in OneDrive, SharePoint Online, Box for Business, or Dropbox for Business. You must add your custom credentials to the web.config and TITUS_ICM.exe.config files. Ensure your Redirect URL points to the URL where Illuminate is installed. If your Illuminate URL is localhost, the Redirect URL will be: http://localhost/IlluminateReply. If it is not, the Redirect URL will be in the format: <IlluminateURL>/CredentialManager/Reply.

    NOTE: You do not have to use custom credentials; you can use the ones provided by Titus. For more information on the new Credential Manager and Cloud applications, see the Titus Illuminate Deployment Guide.
Enhancements
  • Improved handling of the following errors: Cannot access SharePoint account and 401 error blocks to complete scan for THRESHOLD with apply.
