Updates

GUI setup installer will offer to install Microsoft .NET Core SDK

The setup installer for Report Generator GUI, has been updated and will offer to download and install the Microsoft .NET Core SDK at the end of the installation process:

Applications present in a Measurement schema are no longer available for selection in the GUI

Applications that are present in the Measurement Service schema are no longer offered for selection in the Application tab in the GUI. This is because certain data is not present in the Measurement Service schema thus potentially rendering reports incomplete. Portfolio templates (which are designed for Measurement Service schemas) will function normally. See also Distinguishing between identical Applications on Measurement and Dashboard Service schemas.

With regard to the CLI modeif the -domain option is not specified in the command line, Report Generator will only consider Applications stored in the Dashboard Service schema.

Report Generator http requests will now contain specific X-Client value

So that http requests originating from CAST Report Generator can be identified, CAST Report Generator will now issue requests that contain the header 'X-CLient' with the value 'CAST-ReportGenerator'. This can be leveraged, for example in the Dashboard/RestAPI audit trail.
