We introduced a new authentication backend for NetEye, the JWT Authentication. Now it is possible to enable this method to log in from one or more external authentication providers that forward the information about the logged user to NetEye in a secure way via JSON Web Tokens (JWT).
From now on, all the NetEye ISO images can be verified with the signed sha256sum file and the public key available in the Downloads section of this blog [NetEye ➝ GPG public key ➝ public-gpg-key].
The procedure for verifying the ISO files can be found in the NetEye user guide in the Introduction ➝ Acquiring NetEye ISO Image.
We upgraded DRBD userspace utilities from version 9.10.0 to version 9.15.1, which includes multiple bug fixes. The complete change log can be found here.
The Command Orchestrator is provided by the additional feature module
neteye-cmd in NetEye 4.15.
The scope of this module is to allow limited NetEye users, to execute well defined commands on hosts, without needing to access the targeted device.
Administrators can define the commands and their parameters and then allow selected NetEye users to execute them on a determined set of target hosts.
NetEye users can execute the commands from the NetEye GUI, while the administrators can define the commands via Command Line Interface.
Tornado modifiers (“Lowercase”, “Trim”, “ToNumber” and “ReplaceAll”) can now be applied to variables extracted from Events for normalization purpose required in Actions like Monitoring Executor.
For Expert Tornado users we added a “Regex” mode to the Find&Replace modifier, such that the full power of Regular expressions can be leveraged.
JSON Events can now be comfortably imported into the Test Window and used to test all Tornado Rules
Basic modifications of Rules and Filters no longer require writing JSON. Constraint and Action content can now be adapted from the simple editor window.
The new editor allows you to add, delete, and modify both constraints and actions in a simple way without writing a single line of JSON.
You can now normalize event data in Tornado using the new “Trim”, “Lowercase”, “To Numer” and “Find and Replace” modifiers for the With Constraint.
The sidebar in the Tornado UI has been replaced by a two column layout, where both parts remain accessible, taking advantage of the full screen width.
A new column “Continue” has been added to the RuleSet View, showing which Rules of the RuleSet will continue after a match, and which will stop.
The new action combines setting passive check results on hosts and services, as well as creating the related monitoring objects if needed. The result is a lean, maintainable rule and avoids error prone complexity.
Pre-existing Actions will be migrated to the Smart Monitoring Check Result Action, the migration can be repeated at any time running the neteye_secure_install command.
