IMPORTANT CHANGES - please read.

From 1.12.2 onwards only users in Open-AudIT with Admin level access will be able to access Open-AudIT Enterprise when using Open-AudIT as a source of authentication. This is because Open-AudIT Enterprise exposes all Admin level functions. Previously you could use htpasswd (only) authentication, instead of using Open-AudIT ( to avoid all users having access to Admin level functions), but from 1.12.2 onwards using Open-AudIT for auth will impose the "admin level only" restriction so you can manage your Open-AudIT users in a single place.

 

Executive Summary

Changes to database structure. 'sys_hw_network_card_ip' has been replaced by 'ip'. This completes the final device subtables being migrated, following on from 1.10. All network groups will be updated, however if you have manually created group that reply on information from the (old) sys_hw_network_card_ip table, they will be removed. Read the database upgrade output to see which groups this has affected (it will tell you the group name and the groups SQL).

Scheduling in Open-AudIT Enterprise gets a new option. Previously you could schedule tasks on a day per week. We have added the addition to be able to schedule a task every X days. You will see the changes on the Task Create and Task Update screens. Just select the 'custom' Repeat attribute to set it. We're calling this "Advanced Scheduling" and plan to add to it in the future (think 1st of the month, etc).

Future Developments

Going forward we plan to have an additional authentication model. Users will have an access level to devices belonging to an Org (or an Org's descendants). The existing model of a user having an access level on a group of devices will remain in place. We have implemented the first part of this, a new SQL table 'oa_user_org'. This will act as does the current oa_system_user table. It will map a user to an org and have an access level. More details to come in future updates when we complete the implementation. For now, nothing to see here, move along (smile) There is no affect on your current installation.
