RayVentory v11.2

Adds ability to import connections from tnsnames.ora, plus plugin support for Remote Execution on Windows.
May 20, 2019 - 8:22
New Version

Features

  • Import tnsnames.ora Files. New feature present in the Oracle screen. Within a click in the context menu, the user is able to simply import connections from tnsnames.ora. This routine bears similarities to the CSV importer, which is available for computer connections and which can be found in the Devices tab.
  • Plugin support for Remote Execution on Windows. Support for Remote Execution plugins for the Windows platform has been added to the ndtrack.exe. Simply put the plugins into the Plugins/folder and they are going to be automatically respected by the execution engine, regardless of the selected RE method.
  • NDI Tagging. New feature injects specific meta-data to any incoming or outgoing NDI file. It is possible to configure the data that is written to each file globally in the RayVentory Portal Settings. Any details coming from lower instances (for example other Portals) are preserved to keep the information about the origin.
  • Ability to Filter Devices Affected by Scheduled Inventory Tasks Based on their IP Addresses. Introduces a more granular control over the scope of inventory tasks in RayVentory Portal. When configuring a scheduled task for the inventory job the user is able to specify the IP address or the Regular Expression pattern for an IP address, so that only specific devices / IP address ranges can be white-listed for a scheduled scan.
  • The verbose log statements for the Zero -To u ch Windows Scan has been changed to be of INFO level instead of DEBUG level.
  • Oracle scans can now reuse the existing connection information to pull the correct SSH credentials.
  • Extra scrollbars have been added in several places to show content controls that exceed the available space.
  • The grids and the way they work on lower resolutions have been improved. If there is not enough space to show all buttons, an ellipses button which reveals the clipped content when clicked has been added.
  • The stability of the HTTP Upload Location when triggering inventory methods that upload to an HTTP server has been improved.
  • The way the encryption key for credential values in the config.xml file is stored has been changed. The value is now encrypted.
  • A grouping function has been added to the Scheduled Task Editor.
  • Extra checks for the correctness of paths and extensions for the RIW and RIU logging paths have been added. In case of an invalid or missing directory, a warning is shown to the user.
  • The Edit dialog can now be opened by double-clicking an item in the Credentials view.
  • An extension filter to filter out non-CSV files from the CSV Import Dialog has been added.
  • Multi-selection support has been added to the Credentials screen and the Scheduled Tasks screen.
  • The date and time formats in the log files have been unified.
  • The exception and the edge cases handling for computer inventory tasks via PowerShell CLI has been improved.
  • Some examples have been added to the description of the IP address range input field in the editor for the scheduled discovery operations.
