We are excited to announce the general availability of Device42 v15.14.02 with the following changes:
Job status dashboard
- This release marks the first production availability of the Job Status Dashboard, which until now was only available in beta.
- The Jobs Status Dashboard offers an easy, centralized place to monitor the progress of all your running discovery jobs, and its sub-pages make it your one-stop-shop for information on completed jobs, for monitoring various Device42 queues, and more! See the v15.14.01 beta blog post for even more details!
- 14.02 adds the ability to agent-lessly discover IBM z/OS-based mainframes. A wealth of information can be discovered from z/OS, ranging from IP address details to running services and their respective communication ports. For more technical information, check out the IBM z/OS discovery documentation.
- Create a new z/OS mainframe discovery job from the main menu, “Discovery > HyperVisors / *nix / Windows”:
- Of course, IBM mainframe discovery jobs can also be scheduled. To schedule one, go to the main menu, “Discovery > HyperVisors / *nix / Windows” and select the IBM z/OS platform.
- Licensing for IBM mainframe & mid-range discovery
- A license is now required to run IBM i/AS400 or IBM z/OS discoveries.
SSL certificate auto-clean
- Newly added is SSL certificate auto-clean. SSL auto-clean allows you to create rules against individual SSL certificates themselves, which will delete SSL certificates that haven’t been found in the amount of days you configure (as long as it doesn’t contain device certificates). Auto-clean rules can be created via the main menu, Tools → Auto Clean Rules
Support for additional SSH cipher algorithms
- This release adds support for older cipher algorithms still in use to better support certain older versions of the *nix operating system.
Asset list page filter changes
- We have added the customer filter to the Asset list page to help you find the assets you are looking for.
Enhanced VMware discovery results
- VMware discovery has been enhanced to now also import the CPU along with any other parts that are reported by the VMware API
DNS support added to ping connectivity test
- We now support entering a FQDN in the ping test found in the Device42 Appliance Manager, which can now perform a DNS lookup
Generate an SNMPwalk from your remote collector
- We now support generation of an SNMP walk through a remote collector. Note that RC-based SNMP walks are performed via your D42 Appliance Manager
- Added notes support to bulk_fields across all custom field API endpoints. Notes can now be updated using the notation customFieldKey:CustomFieldValue:NotesText
- Added clear_customer and clear_service_level attributes to the /api/1.0/auto_discovery/networks/ endpoint
- Added new endpoint /api/1.0/vrfgroup/ for viewing and managing VRF groups. Uses the standard API structures found across all other API endpoints.
SNMP discovery support
- This release adds SNMP discovery support for the following devices:
- Toshiba UPS running RemoteEye4 SNMP agent gateway
- Liebert MPX PDUs (Giest)
- SPARC T7-1
- Energenie PDUs
- Powertek PDUs
- Tasks logged into /var/log/rc will be archived into a single file.
- AS/400 & z/OS discovery aren’t yet supported by discovery scores.
- Only Superusers can view all items in the “Reporting” menu. Users without super permissions will currently see a reduced option set:
- Device42 Audit log contained extraneous formatting characters.
- OpenStack discovery might fail if targeting the public URL and selecting the ‘Discover All Projects’ option.
- With MT enabled, users were unable to view or modify group assignments for customers.
- Related type custom field value was reset to 0 rather than unset when the entry was cleared via the UI.
- Health stats was returning stale information for disconnected remove collectors.
- Port connection was missing between switches if remote ports were created prior to discovery of the actual switch.
- Prohibited Software Alert was not sending alerts out when prohibited software was detected.
- Scheduled legacy reports were being sent by standby server.
