Enhancements
AreaIDSummary
Core 1.126.0CORE-5183Added support for generating sharing tokens for packages with passwords excluded, using the nullPasswords query parameter.

A new Include passwords in package export option on the Export tool defines whether passwords are included in an exported flow.

By default, passwords are not included in an exported flow. This means that any services passwords need to be set again once a flow is imported, as services may not work as expected until these passwords have been set. If you require passwords to be included when exporting a flow, select the checkbox for the new option.

Core 1.126.0FUI-40Added support for removing group elements from flows that are also used in other flows.
Tooling 2.11.0FUI-278When importing a package a confirmation screen is now displayed containing the tenant and flow name. A user now needs to confirm that they are importing into the correct environment.
