openITCOCKPIT version 4.4.0 has been released. It is packed with new features and improvements like: Support for LDAP groups, the ability to use the openITCOCKPIT Monitoring Agent via satellite systems and automatically check deployment using the Import Module.
openITCOCKPIT distinguishes between two options to define user permissions: 1. User container roles which controls which user can see and edit which object and
2. User Roles which actions the user is allowed to do. Both can now assigned automatically by openITCOCKPIT based on LDAP groups the user is a member of.
Please see https://docs.openitcockpit.io/en/configuration/ldap-integration/ for more information.
To increase the flexibility, the openITCOCKPIT Monitoring Agent can now be used via openITCOCKPIT Satellite Systems. Both Pull and Push modes are available. Just in case you didn't know by now, openITCOCKPIT Satellite Systems itself can also operate either via SSH or in Pull/Push mode through HTTPS. What a time to be alive!
The Import Module can now use openITCOCKPIT Monitoring Agents, that run in Push mode, as asset database. This is especially useful if you automatically install the openITCOCKPIT Monitoring Agent via software deployment on all your devices.
Regular expressions can be used to define rules which services, processes, disks or other hard- and software should be monitored if present.
This change will only affect users of the Distributed Monitoring Module in combination with Checkmk. openITCOCKPIT Satellite Systems will now precompile required checks by itself. This helps to speed up the configuration refresh on the main system and also avoids any issues related to different operating systems and CPU architectures.
Beside the already mentioned new features, we added minor changes which makes openITCOCKPIT more user-friendly. For example is it no longer possible to remove used containers of contacts. Also, a bug was resolved which lead to duplicate results when MySQL 8 is being used.
