Nexthink Dependency Matrix

The Nexthink Finder and Nexthink Engine communicate with each other and therefore depend on each other: 

  Engine 5.2 Engine 5.1 Engine 5.0
Finder 5.2 OK NOK NOK 
Finder 5.1 NOK OK NOK
Finder 5.0 NOK NOK OK

Investigations can be exported from the Nexthink Finder for being used in the Nexthink Portal. The dependency matrix with the Portal is the same, since the it is the responsibility of the Engine to check for compatibility.
