Valued Wi-Fi Cloud WatchGuard Partners and Customers,
This notification is to inform you of the intention to remove the Manage Tile from Wi-Fi Cloud. You will no longer be able to use WatchGuard Wi-Fi Cloud Manage UI to configure your wireless network managed in Wi-Fi Cloud. The Manage tile will no longer appear on the Wi-Fi Cloud’s Launchpad dashboard.
The features and functionality of your wireless network will not be impacted, and we invite you that have not started using the Discover Tile to manage, monitor, and troubleshoot your wireless networks managed in Wi-Fi Cloud to contact the WatchGuard Sales Team to discuss a demo or some training for your team to bring your team up to speed on the Discover features and benefits.
This change will take place when WatchGuard does the Wi-Fi Cloud update to version 13.0. This firmware update is targeted to begin on April 7, 2023, and includes critical bug fixes, feature enhancements and the removal of the Manage tile as discussed in this communication.
Any remaining features that are in Manage it need to be migrated over to the Discover UI have been placed on the 2023 roadmap and will be migrated as the feature work is completed.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this change. WatchGuard feels like our partners and customers benefit the most from the Discover Management UI and maintaining multiple management UIs continues to become a larger challenge as additional standards and features are added to the platform.
If you have any additional questions regarding this change, please contact WatchGuard Support or your WatchGuard Sales Team.
The WatchGuard Wi-Fi Team
