Version 8.1.12 Release Notes
The following fixes are included in ThingWorx 8.1.12:
* 
Changes were made in 8.1.12 that may potentially affect any application that uses Timer or Scheduler Things. If your application/extension contains Timers or Schedulers, you must verify that the runAsUser setting is not blank before upgrading. If your Timers and Schedulers are set as extension entities with editable Configuration Tables, you must perform a platform restart after the runAsUser has been set to take effect. See Thing Templates for additional information. The following error will be seen in the Application Log if you attempt to import extensions that contain an empty runAsUser field:
Thing State is being set to ERROR because it failed during the initialization phase: The runAsUser field was empty!
Enhancements
The ability to import extensions is disabled for all users by default in this release. To enable extension importing, parameters must be added and configured in the platform-settings.json file. For more information, see Importing Extensions.
