openITCOCKPIT 4.5.1 released

29.07.2022

openITCOCKPIT version 4.5.1 has been released.

Revert changes to host group container permissions

The openITCOCKPIT 4.5.0 we introduced a major change to the permissions of host groups. This change was done, because of a paradox which the user permissions. If you add a Host from a sub-container to a host group which is located in the Root-Container, you are changing the host group object. This would require write permissions to the Root-Container.

We addressed this issue with openITCOCKPIT 4.5.0. Unfortunately this change caused massive side effect so we decided to rollback the old behavior.

We also resolved an bug, there the form for editing hosts did not display all available hostgroups due to the paradox permissions.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused.

openITCOCKPIT version 4.5.0 has been released. Among other features are some major changes to the container permissions of host groups.

Major changes to host group container permissions

In versions prior 4.5.0, it was possible to assign hosts from the Root-Container, to a host group outside of the Root-Container. This leads to an inconsistent configuration state as soon as a user edits the configuration of a host. The form for editing hosts, will only show host groups, which are in the same container (or sub-container) as the host itself. This behavior is also adopted for the host group masks as well.
