Domain specification required for all Workfront logins

All Workfront logins now require the user to specify the domain if the domain is not already specified in the Workfront URL. Requiring this information makes your Workfront instance more secure. In addition, if your implementation of Workfront has multiple instances, this enhancement allows you to add the same user to each instance of Workfront within your implementation.

This change can affect both user logins and API integrations:

  • User logins

    If your company domain is not included in the Workfront URL, you now see a new Domain field on the login screen in addition to the Username and Password fields.

    For most customers, no change is required because the domain information is already included in the Workfront URL. For example, “domain.my.workfront.com.”

  • API integrations

    If you have any API code going to an address that does not include your domain name, that API code will no longer work.

For more information, see Log in to Adobe Workfront.

Convert tasks and issues to projects using the mobile app on iOS

You can now convert individual tasks and issues to projects in the Workfront mobile app on iOS.

Log in to the mobile app with fingerprint or face ID

New setting to automatically log users out on mobile

For more information, see Configure system security preferences.
