New configuration options

If you go to Admin -> Configure you will now see additional options for configuration. oae_url, nmis_url and maps_url can all be configured to point to the directories or sites for these additional products. If left unconfigured, the icons for these products in the header will show "about" style pages for Open-AudIT Enterprise and opMaps or direct you to the Opmantek website for NMIS. If configured, a new tab or window should spawn when one of the icons in the header is clicked, taking you to the configured URL.

New audit scripts

Open-AudIT contains an updated "audit_windows.vbs". Please ensure you replace any existing audit scripts being used with this new version. An initial release of a Linux audit script is now included. is a community provided script, support for which is provided by the community on the Open-AudIT forums. It can be found in open-audit/other like the rest of the scripts.

Test data

WARNING - do not use this function on production systems.

For testing and/or evaluation purposes there is now an 'admin' level controller and function to generate 1,100 devices, a few groups and some locations and insert these into the database.

I have disabled this in code and there is no link from the GUI. This is intentional. If you call this function, 1,100 devices will be inserted regardless of what is currently in your database.

To enable the function edit the file code_igniter/application/controllers/admin_test.php. Go to the function called "data". Comment out the third line inside this function that performs the redirect. You can now call the URL in a browser (assuming you are an Open-AudIT user with Admin level credentials).

The URL is http://<SERVER>/index.php/admin_test/data 

The devices that are inserted only populate the 'system' table of the database. There are no further details such as hardware or software installed or settings such as routes, etc. This is for basic testing and evaluation and not meant for thorough analysis on a detailed level.

New Groups

Most Group definitions have been revised to show an icon as the first column in the display group web page. The icon is based on the man_type field in the system table with the exception of devices where man_type = computer. These devices will use the icon for their installed operating system, the man_os_family column in the database.

Attribute formatting

The values reported for processor description and os name are now formatted to remove any (R), (r), (TM), (tm) strings and extra spaces removed. These characters provide no value and rather than use the strings exactly as derived, some nice human readable formatting is applied. The existing database values for these items will be changed when the database upgrade (Admin -> About) is performed. 

Attribute editing

More attributes are now available for editing on the device details screen.


There is a new function in the menu at Admin -> Database -> Reset Device Icons that will (surprise, surprise) reset all icons for all devices. This is not called when a database upgrade is performed and is an optional step. Items have an icon assigned as per their type with the exception where type is a computer. In that case the OS Family is used for the icon name. All icon values are set to lowercase with spaces replaced by underscores. If you encounter a device type that does not have an icon, please report it to the forums. You can manually replace or add icons by replacing the file theme-tango/tango-images/16_<NAME>.png in your web directory (c:\xampp\htdocs, /var/www, /var/www/html).

Audit Submitted From

When an audit result is submitted, the IP Address of the device sending the audit is now recorded. This is displayed on the Device Details screen, under the Summary -> Audits section.
