Release 3.8.5

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue where thumbnails for still images were scaled incorrectly creating blurry previews


Release 3.8.4

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a problem where an unmounted mount point could require a restart of the application


Release 3.8.3

Bug fixes

  • Remove storage_id as a default remote path for auto-upload transfers. For backward compatibility the "Remote path" field will be set to a current storage_id value, removing that will make ISG(3.8.2) upload to the root
  • Fix Watch Folder transcoder skips time out if proxy folder is missing
  • Fix Watch Folder transcoder job getting stuck occasionally on crash
  • Fix transfer and export jobs failing on fresh ISG with an empty mount point

  • ISG can now detect instance-id's used in LucidLink Client, for builds later than #5127.


  • Add a new option to skip auto-upload if a file is already present on any cloud storage, different to selected destination storage
  • Add a config attribute to use symlink for adding originals to a watch folder for Watch Folder transcoder. By default, a hard link is used that fallbacks to copy a whole file to the watch folder if it's on another file system.


Release 3.8.1

Bug fixes

  • On upgrading the iconik Edge Transcoder rpm package on Centos 7 the existing iconik Edge Transcoder config file was not moved correctly to new path.


Release 3.8.0

Bug fixes

  • Fix checksum propagation on cloud to ISG transfer
  • Fix missing assets left in collection
  • Fix transcoder picker include & exclude patterns logic. A previous behaviour would pick first transcoder matching the include pattern and if none found default to first one that doesn't match any exclude patterns. With 3.8.0 first any exclude patterns are applied, then include patterns are checked for a match. If no match was found the first transcoder without an include pattern is chosen as default.
  • Replaced legacy "cantemo" with "iconik" in file paths on Linux distributions. The default config file location is now /etc/iconik/iconik_storage_gateway/config.ini, log files in /var/log/iconik/ and data files in /var/iconik/.
  • Improved transcoding performance when iconik Edge Transcoder is used with the file caching proxy. The amount of data that is prefetched by the caching proxy is now configurable, see the Edge Transcoder documentation.


  • Add support for Enterprise Linux 9
  • Add RED sequence support for the Watch Folder transcoder (the "Use unique sub-folder workflow" must be turned on)

Release 3.5.4

Bug Fixes

  • Fix for skipped transfers and transcode jobs on aggregation. ISG will schedule transfer and transcode jobs for each file found, unless a remote copy or a proxy is already present for the matched asset. The job that gets executed first will upload/transcode a file, while other scheduled jobs will search for a remote copy or a proxy and skip instead of repeating the transfer/transcode
