NOTE - Re-released on 2019-09-06 to fix a task bug.


Open-AudIT 3.2.0 see's a major new feature incorporated - Rules. Rules allow you to manage properties for discovered devices. Think of it as "If This, Then That" for Open-AudIT. More details can be found on the Rules page and a new Blog Post. The affected files (in case you have made any customisations) are mostly within the SNMP helpers. A full list is at the bottom of the page, but the main files are:

Linux - /usr/local/open-audit/code_igniter/application/helpers/snmp_*_helper.php

Windows - c:\xampp\open-audit\code_igniter\application\helpers\snmp_*_helper.php


NOTE - Minor API change. We have replaced the attribute=inText setting to now use attribute=in(Text) in URLs and API requests. If you are using attribute=inText, you will need to refactor your calls. Apologies for any inconvenience caused. This was to better server service requests like system.manufacturer=intel without having to code exceptions for every permutation we come across.

Old - http://server/open-audit/index.php/devices?system.status=inproduction,testing

New - http://server/open-audit/index.php/devices?system.status=in(production,testing)



VersionTypeCollectionDescription
Open-AudIT CommunityBugdiscoveriesSecurity issue reported and rectified. See Errata - 3.1.2 Security issue, September 2019
Open-AudIT CommunityNew FeaturerulesRules
Open-AudIT CommunityChangeAPIReplace attribute=inText with attribute=in(Text)
Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementscriptsEnable running audit_windows.vbs without Admin rights. Admin required for policy reading.
Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementdiscoveries

If we're running under Windows AND the default Apache service user AND have a failed 'net use' in the discovery log, show a warning.

Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementdiscoveriesProvide warning when Windows Apache running as Local System and we have failed audit script copies in the discovery log.
Open-AudIT CommunityBugcredentialsWhen retrieving credentials for a device::read, if they no longer exist, do not try to merge them into the response.
Open-AudIT CommunityBugscriptsRemove unnecessary wscript.quit in policy auditing (left from debugging).
Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementinputRevise 'in' operator to require opening and closing round braces in URL.
Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementqueriesFix parsing queries to use case-insensitive where (as opposed to case sensitive WHERE) when executing.
Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementdiscoveries

Allow the user to supply an ID when creating Discoveries. This enables the Server and Collector to use the same discovery ID so logs will align.

Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementcredentials, locations, orgsAs per discoveries, allow ID for Orgs, Locations and Credentials so they're in sync between Server and Collector.
Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementdiscoveries

Remove $device->id from log messages. We have $device-IP and we use that. Removing the ID (still stored in discovery_log.system_id) removes confusion when reading Collector vs Server discovery logs.

Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementlocations, orgsAdd reset function to Orgs and Locations controllers.
Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementdiscoveries

Set the local IP for a log entry (when status = complete). Only log discovery retrieved if we are given an IP (end of discover subnet script causes this.

Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementrulesSet the PHP memory limit to 1024 the input controller. Discovery now regularly uses > 500MB because of the Rules matching.
Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementdiscoveriesAdd another match test, for dns_hostname.
Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementscriptsRemove the DirectX software entry as the registry cannot provide the correct version above 11.
Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementdiscoveriesShow the name as it is always present, rather than the hostname, in the log.
Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementdiscoveriesAdd the peak memory use to the last log line in discoveries.
Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementusersDisable the NMIS user (null password) by default.
Open-AudIT CommunityBugdiscoveriesFix non-updating status for discovery on single device discovery.
Open-AudIT CommunityBugusersFix bug in m_logon when testing for multiple LDAP servers. Allow for user.name@domain.com and parse to user.name when searching for a user or logging on using headers. Full user.name@domain.com is sent from Enterprise.
Open-AudIT CommunityImprovementscripts

Only show 'Audit My PC' on the logon screen if default network address is set and not to localhost.

Open-AudIT CommunityBugdiscoveriesValidate network address when discovery submitted and also when generating the command to be run.

Open-AudIT ProfessionalImprovementdiscoveriesRevise warning message for Centos/Redhat 6 for discovery create form.

Open-AudIT ProfessionalImprovementAPI

Only load dictionary in include_read when format is screen. When reading a discovery, load org, assigned org and assigned location in the includes array.

Open-AudIT ProfessionalImprovementcredentialsRemove menu entry for Default Credentials (we no longer ship SNMP public).

Open-AudIT EnterpriseImprovementcollectors, discoveriesDelete the discovery logs on the server when a Collector discovery runs.
Open-AudIT ProfessionalBuginstallerParse database.php config correctly so we can back it up in the installer.
Open-AudIT ProfessionalImprovementdiscoveriesOn discoveries::read template, insert a BR where we have a new line int he logs.
Open-AudIT EnterpriseBugdiscoveries

If we are Cloud or have Collectors, disable Run Discovery on Bulk Edit template. If we run Discovery from Bulk Edit, redirect upon completion to Dashboard with success or fail flash. Allow for new id=in() format in URL.

Open-AudIT ProfessionalImprovementdiscoveries

Links on Discoveries::Read::Summary now directly show devices audited or not audited, rather than link to the devices::collection template, hence show what the user expects to see.

Open-AudIT ProfessionalNew FeatureGUI

Export & Import.

On each details page (for all collections except devices, so Credentials, Locations, Rules, etc), there is now an "Export" button. This will provide a JSON object of the item in question, minus it's ID and edited_date, edited_by fields.

On each list page (again, except devices) there is a new button called "Import". The JSON from the aforementioned Export can be copied here and a new item created.

This ties in nicely to let users share queries, rules or anything else they would like to.

NOTE - It does include credentials. If you want to remove those from being included, set the configuration item "decrypt_credentials" to 'n'.
