9.1R15 removes Cache Cleaner

Hello,

I have been reading the list of deprecated features in version 9.1R15 (https://kb.pulsesecure.net/articles/Pulse_Secure_Article/KB45044) , including a very brief note about Cache Cleaner:

"For User Roles, under Host Checker restrictions remove cache cleaner policy from selected policies list"

 

Just upgraded a PCS appliance to 9.1R15 and sure enough the Cache Cleaner page is gone.   Under Authentication --> Endpoint Security there is no longer a page for Cache Cleaner.

 

What is the impact of no longer having Cache Cleaner?   Was it not providing any benefits?  Thoughts?

For me, (Server R14.1 / Client R15) DNS propblems are present again.. "host not found" with first connect. Workaround from older Versions: manual hosts entry to Server... I think the Cleaner would have saved it here Smiley Sad

there is no expected impact of not having cache cleaner; it is not something that has had wide use (and has been slowly working out of the product for several years)

cache cleaner should not have any impact on that
is that connection with the client or a browser?

So what is being done in its place? I means the purpose of it was 

 

"Cache Cleaner can also prevent Web browsers from permanently storing the usernames, passwords, and Web addresses that users enter in Web forms. By preventing browsers from improperly caching this information, Cache Cleaner keeps confidential user information from being stored on untrusted systems."

 

So it is being done automagically now?

i do not believe it is being done by any pulse software at this time. if that is functionality you are needing, i would recommend reaching out to your account team for discussion with the product management team
