Webview2 no longer passes Device info to Azure


I have been asked to post this here as an idea. although I am convinced that it is a bug. This is probably only relevant for users using Jet Reports with Office 365/Entra ID/Single Sign on and companies, who are using Conditional Access as a security measure:

We are using conditional access in our company. Unfortunately, since version Jet Reports 23.3 Build # we cannot use and thus update Jet Reports to the most current version, because Webview2 has been upgraded in this version. The upgraded Webview2 version does no longer pass device info to Azure. Conditional access policies, which are based on device information (like device id), will block the access request, because the device looks like an untrusted device. You will find more detailed information on this Webview2 bug here:

Recommendations like excluding Jet Reports App Registrations will create a security hole on purpose and are not a viable workaround.

Please fix this issue, like downgrading Webview2 to a version, where this bug is not present, or any other viable solution, where device information are again passed to Azure.

Thanky you
