About the release

The 7.8.0 release is the eleventh update for Datto RMM in 2019. Along with numerous fixes and improvements, some of the highlights are:

  • You can now run a quick job from device pages, alert pages, and device tables in the New UI BETA. Refer to Quick jobs - New UI BETA.
  • You can now access ESXi device summary pages in the New UI BETA. Refer to Device Summary - New UI BETA.

Authentication changes

After the global roll-out of the 7.8.0 release is completed, Datto RMM will switch authentication to use Datto single sign-on (SSO). The most important change is that you will be required to use your email address instead of your username to log in to Datto RMM. Other areas will also be impacted like SSO settings, creating new users, password resets, and logging in from the Agent Browser. To help you prepare for these changes, please refer to the following overview and FAQ: Authentication Changes for Datto RMM.
