Bugs Fixed:

  • Crash on initialization/logout.
  • Deep link fails to open.
  • Secure form self closed after returning to the app.

Enhancements:

  • When the conversation comes from background to foreground, instead of always requesting authCode from IDP, SDK will check if it has the token (LP_JWT), then connect to UMS and let UMS do the expiration check. If the token is not available, then request authCode before connecting to UMS.
  • Support markdown hyperlink in controller bot message.
