Niagara 4.3
Building upon improvements offered by Niagara 4.2u1, Niagara 4.3 offers enhancements that make it easier to manage and deploy templates, and a new Abstract Manager Framework for creating custom manager views. This release fixes the issues with Windows 10 service pack updates changing Host IDs.

Backup as a Service
With the release of Niagara 4.3, Tridium makes it easy for you to back up your data—at no additional cost.

You will be able to access device backups via BaaS using our exciting new asset manager tool, to be introduced soon on the Niagara Community website.

Beyond accessing device backups via BaaS, the asset manager tool will help you simplify license management and recoup valuable time. Other key advantages include:
