Important Update - 2020-02-24
API: We've disabled (Transport Layer Security) TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 protocols' support in 7pace Timetracker. This may result in issues with the API and seeing error messages such as "The underlying connection was closed. An unexpected error occurred on a send" or "An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host."
TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 protocols are outdated and have been compromised, therefore, it's not safe to use them. Most companies, including Google, Microsoft, and Apple are going to deprecate these protocols in March 2020. All services that continue using these protocols will be banned, so we have had to stop using these older versions.
From today forward, 7pace Timetracker uses TLS 1.2, so our customers may need to update their tools if they don't support this version.
