SessionNotOnOrAfter. If your IDP does not support use of
SessionNotOnOrAfter, remove that attribute from your IDP assertion and ask ThoughtSpot Support to enable
Customers embedding ThoughtSpot in software releases should continue embedding ThoughtSpot using legacy embedding tools, which remain supported in 7.x software releases. Upgrading an environment with an existing embedded solution leveraging the legacy embedded technology to SW v.7.x is supported and seamless from an embedding standpoint.
If you are running one of the following versions, you can upgrade to the 7.2.1.x release directly:
7.0.x to 7.2.1.x
7.1.x to 7.2.1.x
This includes any hotfixes or customer patches on these branches.
If you are running a different version, you must do a multiple pass upgrade.
First, upgrade to version 7.0.x or 7.1.x, and then to the 7.2.1.x release.
