24-hour password limit  UPDATED FEATURE


In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), after an account administrator has changed a user's password, that user can immediately change their password.

Previously, after a password reset, a user had to wait 24 hours to change their password again. Now, when an account administrator changes a user's password, that user can bypass the 24-hour limit and immediately change their password.

This update helps ensure the security of the user's account.


Schedule a virtual machine to be deleted  NEW FEATURE


In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), you can now schedule a virtual machine to be deleted at the end of the billing cycle.

Previously, you had to contact Armor Support to schedule a date to delete your virtual machine.

Resize a virtual machine (Upgrade or downgrade a virtual machine)  NEW FEATURE

Private IP addresses  UPDATED FEATURE


In the Armor User Interface (AMP), you can now view and assign multiple private IP addresses to a single virtual machine.

Previously, the IP Addresses screen only showed the IP addresses that you owned. Now, you can see all the available IP addresses in your network, including the IP addresses that are already assigned to a virtual machine. 

The IP Addresses screen now includes two tabs: Private and Public. Additionally, each IP address contains a descriptive label: 

RReserved
UUnassigned
P

Assigned Primary 

SAssigned Secondary
