Make sure to import the transport requests before you create the RFC user, since the transport requests include an authorization object and an authorization profile that the user requires.
Download File 21.11.zip
Download the file transports-for-avantra-21.11.zip either from the Support menu of avantra.com(it is in the CONTRIB RELEASE 21.11 section) or from your Avantra Server(if you followed Preparing the Avantra Agent Deployment):
Set the file permission of the copied cofiles in a way that they are readable and writable for any operating system user [sid]adm supposed to import the request. On Unix-like operating systems, you can do this like in the following example:
On Microsoft Windows operating systems, you can use the Properties menu opened from the context menu of the file in order to modify the file attributes and other file security settings. Refer to your operating system documentation for further information.

Switch to the Roles tab and enter the role ZAVANTRA. This profile has been imported with transport request XANK900242 or SA1K900155. If the transport has not been imported so far, please see Importing the SAP Transport Request on how to import the transport request and assign the profile afterwards.
On the Physical Servers supposed to run the Avantra Agent, download the appropriate package agent-21.11.n.bin (on Unix-like operating systems) or agent-21.11.n-setup.exe (on Microsoft Windows operating systems) from the Avantra Server (if you followed Preparing the Avantra Agent Deployment)
On the next screen you can define a different service user. The Avantra Agent service by default runs using the LocalSystem user account. This user may not be allowed to access network resources. If some of your SAP Systems profile data are located on remote (shared) resources, the SAP System will most likely not be monitored. In this case it is necessary to change the service user to an operating system user allowed to read the network resources (e.g. the SAP System's [sid]adm user).
The user running the Avantra Agent needs the permissions to read and access the home directories of any user [sid]adm of the installed instances, as well as the profile directories /usr/sap/[SID]/SYS/profile.
For SAP installations based on an Oracle database, the user xandria needs permissions to read and access the directory /oracle/[SID (and all sub-directories). In particular it needs the permissions to read all init* files in `/oracle/[SID]/[ORA`VERS]/dbs_.

Defect: Document preview not working correctly with high screen resolution and scalingID: 165067, 165951Symptom: In M-Files Desktop, when a user previews a PDF or image file, the shown content does not always fit in the preview window. This occurs if Windows scaling is set to over 100%.Solution: Fixed.
Defect: It is not possible to configure AD user synchronization timings by using Advanced Vault SettingsID: 164088Symptom: It is not possible to configure some of the AD user synchronization settings in Advanced Vault Settings. Also, it is not possible to define the time of the first synchronization for a user group after a MFServer start. Some configuration possibilities exist in registry such as UGRefreshSleepingIntervalInMinutes.Solution: Fixed. The settings such as UGRefreshSleepingIntervalInMinutes that were configurable in registry only, are transferred into Advanced Vault Settings. UGRefreshSleepingIntervalInMinutes is configured by using Sleep Interval setting. Additionally new setting item called Start Time of First Import, is added into AD related Advanced Vault Settings. That allows the defined time for the first synchronization after MFServer start. Refer to the M-Files User guide -files.com/user-guide/latest/eng/users_in_synchronized_active_directory_groups.html
Defect: Preview for HTML tags not working as expected in new webID: 157571Symptom: In the new M-Files Web, the document preview sometimes reads text files that contain HTML tags as HTML instead of showing the content as plain text.Solution: Fixed.
Defect: Filename placeholder works incorrectly when adding many files to M-FilesID: 154048Symptom: The vault uses a metadata card configuration rule that sets the dynamic value %FILENAME% for a property. When a user drags many files to M-Files and the rule is triggered, clicking Create All makes M-Files to set the original file name of the last file for all the objects.Solution: Fixed.
Defect: Download does not operate correctly with M-Files for Chrome in the new M-Files CloudID: 165258Symptom: In the Azure Service Fabric based M-Files Cloud, downloads with the M-Files for Chrome extension do not operate correctly.Solution: Fixed.

Defect: Excel files with many name variables are slow to saveID: 164897Symptom: Excel files with many name variables are slow to save. The issue can cause M-Files to become unresponsive.Solution: Fixed. To make save operations faster, administrators can now control the removal of unreferred M-Files names with two new registry settings. NameCleaningLimit sets the number of names to be checked and value zero (0) can be used for no limit. A non-zero value in SkipIfLimit causes the name cleaning process to not be done if the name count exceeds the set limit. The actual name cleaning process is also limited. If all unreferred M-Files names are not removed during one operation, the next one removes a new batch.
Defect: Save Attachments to M-Files does not operate correctly with attachments that contain extra spacesID: 159493Symptom: In the M-Files Outlook Add-in, the Save Attachments to M-Files command does not sometimes operate correctly. This can occur when the attachments have otherwise the same names but are made different with extra space characters.Solution: Fixed. The extra space characters are now removed and a running number is added to the end of identical filenames.
Defect: Temporary files not always deleted correctly when vault brought onlineID: 163620Symptom: When a vault is brought online, a set of temporary files is deleted during the process. Files that cannot be deleted can cause the rest of the cleanup process to not be completed.Solution: Fixed. Files that cannot be deleted are skipped and logged to the Windows event log.

Defect: Additional versions for document linked from external sourceID: 163616Symptom: If a document is linked from an external source, edits to the file make M-Files to create additional object versions. This occurs if a post-check-in event handler (for example, AfterCheckInChangesFinalize) that reads the latest object version details is triggered.Solution: Fixed. 041b061a72
