#31098 - (Linux Only) Upgrading the common components from version 1.2.9 to any newer version deletes the /usr/bin/asctl symlink. Workaround: Installing Console or Orchestrator after upgrading the common components will recreate the missing link during the installation process.

#27371 - ADFS SAML users running Chrome on a Windows machine are currently unable to log in. Workaround: Turn off "Extended Protection" in ADFS SAML IdP. After doing so, you may at first see ADFS SAML user login failures with an "Invalid SAML response" error and infinite redirects on login. After some time, however, the failures end.

#27236 - As of Console 2.5+, because Console now generates reports of the type XLSX (rather than XLS), any reports you completed before upgrading to this release of Console are no longer accessible through the web link. However, any reports that were not completed before the upgrade (such as scheduled reports) are unaffected. If a report was configured to generate XLS, when it next runs it will generate XLSX. Workaround: Click Rerun on a completed report.

#22396 - If email notifications are configured for specific transfer paths on a user’s Preferences > Email Notifications page, these settings are not honored when the user clicks the Rerun link on the Activity page on a transfer that started before Console was upgraded.

#22303 - Scheduled smart transfers that were created before upgrading from a version prior to 2.0.2 continue to use the old behavior, displaying dates/times using the timezone of the transfer requester, rather than trying to look up the recipient's time zone.
