The new Health Checks section allows you to check the database entries consistency. Go to Admin Menu > Maintenance > Health Checks, start a test, and then run repairs. You can check whether all unique XIDs have equally or less than one active version. In the future, the Health Check section will be expanded with additional options for checking the consistency of the database. For more information, see the Maintenance help page.
See the following short video demonstration about Health Checks.
SAML: Automatically Redirect to IDP when Logging In
As an admin, you can enable users to be automatically redirected from the Connect login page to SAML IdP. You can set this option only for one SAML. Go to Admin Menu > Settings > Single Sign-On and check the Automatically redirect to IDP when logging in box while adding a new SAML option or edit the existing one. For more information, see the Settings help page.
