OpenVMS and Solaris Autodiscovery in v14.7.2

We are excited to announce general availability of v14.7.2 with the following changes:


OpenVMS and Solaris autodiscovery using telnet

We added support for discovering Solaris and OpenVMS systems via telnet. This is applicable if Device42 is not able to connect via SSH. Discovery via telnet can be enabled by checking the Use telnet if SSH port is closed and then entering the relevant Telnet Port (usually port 23).

SSH key support for autodiscoveries

You can now use SSH keys instead of passwords for autodiscovery. To utilize an SSH key file, simply choose your SSH key from the “Add Password” dialog. If the SSH key is itself password protected, enter the key’s password into the Use Password field; Otherwise, simply uncheck Use Password checkbox in the password edit screen, and discovery will utilize your Key File.Add SSH key for autodiscovery auth


Device API

We have added the filters device_sub_type and device_sub_type_id to all device APIs so that you can filter by the appropriate device sub-type.


curl -X GET -u  'admin:adm!nd42' https://yourdevice42address/api/1.0/devices/all/?device_sub_type=PDU --insecure
