Product Manager

We change the default prepaid top-up limit to 0 (before was unlimited) and delivered general improvements.

What鈥檚 new?#

  • Default prepaid top-up limit - Organizations with a prepaid business model and with the ability to top up SIMs will now have the possibility to go directly to the Manage Top-ups page from the sub-organization creation page. Also, we changed the default top-up limit per plan to be zero instead of unlimited which will enable a better control on the connectivity allowance per SIM or sub-organization.

sub_organizations_topup_limit_information Save and manage top-ups on sub-organization creation page

What鈥檚 fixed or improved?#

  • Rate Plans on SIM Details page - Users with a Tech User role don't have permissions to check the rateplan history of a SIM and, even though they could not access this information, a link to that page was available in the SIM details page of each SIM. This was causing some confusion to the users and we have removed the buton from the page.

General improvements on the SIM list and SIM service status.

Split the SMS history feature from the Send SMS menu. New location updates events are also now available.

What鈥檚 new?#

  • Location updates - The location updates screen, available from the SIM details page, was only listing updates based on usage which means that if a SIM card opened a session but didn't generate any payload then no update would be visible. With this change, all location updates will be visible on this screen.

  • SMS history - The SMS history menu was split from the Send SMS one and now has its own entry under "SIM Cards" on the left menu bar of the IoT Portal. With this, both menus are now more accessible and faster to load.

We have improved the usability on some of the features.

What鈥檚 fixed or improved?#

  • SIM card notifications - The SIM card notifications screen was not displaying correctly when the SIM had a notification for SMS service suspension. This has been improved to list all notifications correctly.
    More details on Notifications section.

  • Select countries for rules - In the flow for creating or modifying an event rule with a "New country/network" trigger, users were facing an issue after filtering for a country (from the list of available countries) and trying to move it to the selected countries list, frequently a different country was moved instead. This section of the rule flow was improved to always move the selected country.

  • Filter by date calendar in SMS History - The date picker filter option from the SMS history screen was being displayed with a transparent background which made it harder for users to select a date. We have already fixed this and users can now see the date picker correctly.

This was fixed and the API is working again as described in the documentation.

Send SMS feature in SIM list is available again and SIM details was improved to display SIMs without rateplans.

What鈥檚 fixed or improved?#

  • Send SMS - We fixed a bug in the SIM list feature that was preventing users from accessing the Send SMS feature directly from the SIM list. This is available again for all SIMs with SMS service enabled

ongoing_data_session

  • SIM Details - Up until now, all SIMs provisioned in IoT Portal need to be associated to a rateplan. We changed this requirement to support a use case where a prepaid plan gets depleted or expired and the SIM doesn't hold a valid plan anymore. When this happens, the SIM details page will show that there is no rateplan and the SIM will be a suspended status.
