What's New in MOVEit Transfer 2020.1

Release Notes are available in the following languages:

You can download the 2020.1 release of MOVEit Transfer from the community products page.

Microsoft SQL Server 2019

You can now deploy MOVEit Transfer to use the newest version of MS SQL Server (MS SQL Server 2019) for your database platform. See supported databases for full database support options.

If you do not have an existing database, you can also choose MySQL at install time to install a free database bundled in the installer. For details, see Supported Databases and the MOVEit Transfer Install Guide.

ADFS 4.0 and 5.0 Support

We tested Windows Server 2019 AD FS (also referred to as "ADFS 5.0") and Windows Server 2016 AD FS (also referred to as "ADFS 4.0") with MOVEit Transfer. For details, see the MOVEit Transfer Administrator Guide.

Tip You can leverage ADFS as an external authentication source. Additionally, within a Single Sign-on model, you can use ADFS as a trusted identity provider.

Mobile and Desktop Single Sign-on

You can now use enterprise credentials or custom identity providers (IdP) for friction-free sign-on to MOVEit Mobile and MOVEit Client by authorized users. For details on how to configure SAML message passing with a trusted identity provider, see the Administrator Guide.

MOVEit Mobile Single Sign-on

If Single Sign-on (SSO) is enabled for your organization, an SSO link displays. From there, users can choose an Identity Provider (IdP) (assuming more than one is configured for their organization).

Upgrading

This section explains how you can upgrade from an earlier version of MOVEit Transfer.

Upgrade Paths

Reasons you should upgrade:

  • Get the latest features. Full-featured mobile app integration, simplified Gateway deployment configuration, REST API, and much more.
  • Ensure your product is up-to-date. Get ongoing improvements, fixes, the latest support of the MOVEit teams, and take advantage of the improvements and wins requested by the rich ecosystem of Progress users.
  • If you have a support subscription, upgrades are free. Read this community article for evaluators and check your product license.

    MOVEit Transfer 2020.1 supports "direct upgrade" (upgrade by way of running the MOVEit Transfer installer) for existing MOVEit Transfer 2018 (10.0.0) and newer.

Use the Upgrade Path table to find out how you can move earlier or legacy versions to MOVEit Transfer 2020.1.

Your Older MOVEit Transfer Version

Upgrade Path

MOVEit Transfer 2018 (10.0.0) or newer

Use Upgrade mode in MOVEit installer:

MOVEit Transfer 2017 PLUS SP1 (9.6) and older

If you are running a version that is out of date or close to being out of date, you can:

  • Upgrade to a supported version such as 2018 (running the 2018 installer in upgrade mode), and then...
  • Use the latest installer to upgrade 2018 to 2020.

    Check the Product Lifecycle page --upgrade to the latest version of MOVEit Transfer if your product version is close or past its End of Life (EoL) or sunset milestones.

Get the Installer

To get a MOVEit installer package:

  1. Sign-in to the Progress Customer and Community portal.

    Download the product package. (When you get your MOVEit product package from your Progress Community page, the activation code is already embedded).

  2. Before you run the upgrade installer:
    • Review Upgrade Guidelines. They identify useful tips and guidelines for existing MOVEit Transfer or MOVEit DMZ users.
    • It is a good idea to copy and save your current product serial number. This Progress knowledge base article explains how to find it.

Get an Activation Code

For upgrades, activation codes are applied automatically when you run the MOVEit Transfer installer.

  • Your upgrade activation code is embedded in the MOVEit installer file.
  • The activation code is also stored in your Progress Community product page for reference.
  • The activation code differs from your serial number. The code begins with your serial number and contains an additional eight characters.

Upgrade Considerations

Install-Time Decision for Azure Blob Encryption (Important Note if You Leveraged Blob Storage in MOVEit Transfer 2019)

This install-time item is relevant if you intend to use Azure Blobs for your filestore or if you are upgrading a MOVEit Transfer system (2019.0, for example) that uses Azure Blobs. When not enabled (cleared), the Encrypt all files at-rest with MOVEit checkbox (introduced with the 2019.1 installer), can provide performance advantages. In this mode, you will deploy your filestore to use only the native Azure Storage at-rest encryption.

When you run the MOVEit Install utility, only newer installation scenarios (MOVEit Transfer 2019.1, and newer, for example) provide an option for using just native Azure encryption (opting out of the second layer of MOVEit encryption) for your MOVEit Transfer 'at rest' filestore. This is not available to 2019.0 or upgrades from 2019.0.

MOVEit Installer Option for Filestore Encryption Modes

Checkbox

Mode

Result

Cleared
()

Azure Encryption Only (2019.x Default)

Realize the full and intended performance gain of Azure block Blob (NoSQL) storage for your MOVEit Transfer filestore while using encryption at the Azure Storage Service level which uses the latest ciphers.

Selected
()

Azure Encryption and MOVEit Encryption.

Apply MOVEit Transfer encryption throughout (filestore, non-root files, and more).
(Filestore will be double-encrypted.)

Do not choose the Azure-only encryption mode if you plan to point to an existing Azure Blob store used from a 2019.0 MOVEit Transfer Server. This can result in an operating environment where two different encryption schemes are in use for your file store. Mixed encryption schemes are not currently supported by MOVEit Transfer. See the MOVEit Install Guide for details.

MySQL Database Deployments

When you run the MOVEit Transfer installer in an upgrade scenario on a MOVEit Transfer deployment using MySQL, the installer upgrades existing MySQL 5.7 servers to MySQL 8.x.

Any custom schema, tables, and fields (if applicable) must be backed up

It is best practice to backup any customizations before you run the MOVEit Transfer installer. MOVEit Transfer database schema customizations are not supported. If you change the name or add schema, indexes, or tables, the MOVEit Installer will not expect these manual changes and attempt to revert them.

Reset tamper check for logs

If you have logs that include data from before and after a software upgrade, tamper check verification shows false positive tamper errors when verifying the logs

To prevent this situation, do the following when upgrading MOVEit DMZ software to MOVEit Transfer 2017 (and later).

  1. Before you upgrade, manually start the MOVEit DMZ Log Tamper Check program from the Start menu.
  2. Immediately after you upgrade:
    • Sign-on as System Administrator. Click SETTINGS.
    • In the System section, Tamper Detection row, click Reset All Orgs.
  3. Click Reset Tamper Detection Data.

Upgrading to a release with Secure Folder Sharing (a post upgrade task is necessary)

If you upgrade your MOVEit Transfer installation with a version that enables Secure Folder Sharing, this feature set will be initially set to off. After the upgrade, as sysadmin user, you can apply the Secure Folder Sharing feature set selectively in Org Profile Settings. As sysadmin, you can apply these settings on an org-by-org basis.

Enable org UI Security settings to allow Secure Folder Sharing feature set (needed for upgrade installations)

  • Operating System:

    Microsoft Windows 10, Microsoft Windows 8, Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit English, German, French, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Japanese)

SFTP, SSH, HTTPS, and More...

Because MOVEit conforms to HTTP, FTP, SSL and SSH standards, most clients that conform to IETF's RFCs for these protocol standards will work.

MOVEit Transfer Server is compatible with clients that adhere to FTP, HTTPS, SFTP, and SSH protocol industry standards

See also: MOVEit Clients.

Supported AS2/AS3 Clients

MOVEit supports any AS2 client that has been "Drummond" or "eBusinessReady" certified; the software MOVEit uses to handle incoming AS2 files and MDNs has itself been certified "eBusinessReady" under a program now managed by Drummond.

AS3 clients are just FTP/SSL clients as far as MOVEit is concerned. MOVEit Automation handles the encryption/decryption, signing and verification of AS files in either case.

Desktop Automation

MOVEit EZ is a Windows desktop client that automatically and securely moves files between MOVEit and a user's local machine or remote server. End-users or applications copy files to a designated folder on their local machine, and they are taken to MOVEit. Files that are uploaded for that user to MOVEit are automatically downloaded and placed on their local machine.

Note: ALL MOVEit EZ clients will need to be updated to MOVEit EZ V.6.5 or later to work with MOVEit V.6.5 or later. Because of problems with older MOVEit EZs unique handling of MOVEit folders, MOVEit will now prevent sign-ons from pre-6.5 versions of MOVEit EZ and will display a message to the end-user telling them to upgrade to MOVEit EZ 6.5 or later.

MOVEit EZ normally runs as an icon in the tray of an end-user, but it is often also installed as a service. During file transfers, it will pop open status balloons like the one pictured below to let the end-user know it is working. When new files have arrived, the MOVEit EZ icon will change (similar to an email client) to let the end-user know something new has arrived.

MOVEit EZ supports the concept of guaranteed delivery, which means that it will only accept files that pass a cryptographic integrity check, will resume incomplete transfers, and will retry failed transfers.

More information on MOVEit EZ is available on the MOVEit EZ web site. Thirty day, self-installing evaluations can be obtained from this page. Site licensing and customized redistribution options (including custom application name and icons) are also available.

Batch File Transfers Involving MOVEit

Many administrators like to use ".bat" scripts for FTP transfers.

Batch files (*bat) are limited by ftp.exe. ftp.exe cannot perform passive FTP transfers, which are often necessary if transferring through firewalls or secure FTP transfers for sensitive transmissions over the Internet or other untrusted networks, which is recommended.

MOVEit normally accepts only secure connections, so ftp.exe itself cannot be used to FTP files to and from MOVEit. As an alternative, use MOVEit Freely a free and secure alternative for ftp.exe (In other words, "ftps.exe"). If you would prefer to use FTP over SSH transmissions, free scriptable clients are available for almost every version of UNIX as well as most Windows operating systems from OpenSSH.

To avoid several common firewall issues with the FTP/SSL protocol, MOVEit also offers a free HTTPS-based command-line utility called MOVEit Xfer that accepts the same syntax and commands as MOVEit Freely and Microsoft ftp.exe client. Available in both Windows and Java 1.4.2+ versions, this scriptable utility provides single-port secure file transfer on a wide variety of platforms including UNIX, Linux, Windows, Macintosh and some mainframes.

Copies of MOVEit Xfer and MOVEit Freely are available from the MOVEit support site or from the MOVEit Freely information site.

Programmatic Control of MOVEit Transfer with MOVEit APIs

MOVEit Transfer offers comprehensive programming interfaces for .NET, JAVA, and REST application developers.

API

Description

REST API

Connect systems and clients to MOVEit Transfer using simple HTTP calls.

Language and platform independent, the REST API can be your best choice to converge information systems, circumvent the unending need for client-server dependency maintenance, and span any combination of environments (including IoT, mobile, and much more).

The MOVEit Transfer REST API runs at https://<your-transfer-server>/api/v1/.

—Where <your-transfer-server> is the host where your MOVEit Transfer Server is running.

.NET API

MOVEit .NET API consists of Dynamically Linked Libraries with client calls which lets developers build applications and scripts to exchange secure files with MOVEit servers as well as administer folder settings, folder permissions, users and group membership.

Java API

MOVEit Java API is a Java class which lets developers build applications and scripts to exchange secure files with MOVEit servers, as well as administer folder settings, folder permissions, users, and group membership.

As these products are separately licensed from MOVEit, you may contact the MOVEit or Progress Software sales directly for more information about either of the MOVEit API products.

Scheduled and Audited File Transfers Involving MOVEit with MOVEit Automation

MOVEit Automation is an enterprise file transfer manager capable of simultaneous file transfers to and from hundreds of Windows file systems, FTP/FTPS/SFTP servers, mail servers, web servers, MOVEit servers, and AS1/AS2/AS3 partners.

Included are a full-featured task scheduler, guaranteed delivery, instant (event-driven) transfers, multiple sources/destinations in a single task, the ability to run custom VBScripts against processed files in a fault-tolerant sandbox, and custom event log or email notification support (or both). Security features include secure channels for remote control/configuration and AES encryption of configuration information, including remote host credentials.

For more information, see the MOVEit Automation documentation.
