These release notes provide the following details:

New features and improvements in IPAM

IP Address requests

IPAM 2020.2.6 introduces improved IP Request implementation, providing improved security options and addressing more workflow scenarios. If your environment is making use of the IP Request feature you will need to adjust the settings for a use case that works best for you. Your existing IP request form may not work as intended if you don’t review these settings and make changes. For more details on your options and how to change them, see the IP Address Request section of the IPAM Administrator Guide.

DHCP Impersonation

With the 2020.2.6 release, IPAM no longer needs to have a matching local account to be able to successfully manage and monitor remote Windows DHCP servers. Instead, when adding a DHCP server, specify the username as domain_name\username if there is a Windows domain associated with the DHCP server, or dhcp_server_ip\username or \username if not.

Orion Platform 2020.2.6

IPAM 2020.2.6 is a service release, running on Orion Platform 2020.2.6. For more information, see the Orion Platform 2020.2.6 release notes.
