News regarding user administration
Unlike in WinCC Unified V16, the default user "UMCAdmin" is no longer created in the new version. This means you must create a user in the TIA Portal project and assign a user role to log in to the WinCC Unified Runtime. Note that the user administration is overwritten when downloading the project.
Installation and updatesWe recommend that you always use the most recent version of our TIA Portal engineering framework. Make sure you have installed the most recent update on your engineering station. To do so, use the Automation Software Updater or download the most recent update from the Industry Online Support website.
Switching to the SIMATIC WinCC Unified System
Continue to use your project contents when switching over to SIMATIC WinCC Unified and save time during engineering with the "Data2Unified" add-in. With the help of the documentation, you will learn more about the differences between the Comfort Panel and the newly developed Unified Comfort Panels. You will also learn how you can implement the major elements (such as pop-ups and slide-ins) in WinCC Unified.
