It is now possible to bake and sign all agents in one step. You can simply do this by pressing the corresponding button at the agent bakery. It will be available as soon as at least one signature key has been created or imported.

When invoking "Bake and sign agents", you will be prompted for selecting a signature key and entering its passphrase. After that, every agent package will get baked and signed immediately after baking.

When using "Bake and sign", it is assured that there are no unsigned packages visible for download at any time, avoiding that it could be seen accidentally by a calling agent updater, leading to a "The deployment server provides an agent but that is not signed." error.

The "Bake and sign" action is also available via REST API, please refer to the documentation for details.
