Downloaded 3.7.0 MSI and ran it with admin rights. Installs but it is not reflecting on the Home Page and it is still showing the previous version 3.6.2 and New version Available 3.7.0 even after logging out and back in.


We have a build in the release pipeline to fix the MSI. It will be available in about 40 minutes.

Am I missing the docs about how to use local accounts? I can see how to set one up, but how do I authenticate one?

This is nice! docs out yet?

Local accounts work with forms authentication. You should just be able to login via the login page once you create identities and set passwords.

You can follow the MSFT tutorial for this: Tutorial: Use a managed identity to access Azure SQL Database - Windows - Azure AD - Microsoft Entra | Microsoft Learn

The big take aways are creating and setting the account correctly and making sure your connection string has the proper authentication value.
