Enhanced Google Cloud and Azure Cloud discovery

This release includes enhancements to both the Google Cloud and Azure Cloud platform discoveries, both of which will now discover new instance attributes. Google Cloud discovery jobs will now discover instance_name, os_platform, virt_type, service_name, os_platform and image_id (if it exists), while instances on Microsoft Azure will now additionally include instance_name and os_platform.

Auto-clean rules for SSL Certificates

A new auto-clean option was added that makes managing SSL Certificates easier. Certificate auto-clean can help eliminate manual work, automating the removal of old SSL certificates that are no longer being used.

new IPMI naming options

IPMI naming options

A new naming option, ‘Reverse DNS/Discovered Name/Serial #/IP’, was added to the list ‘Hostname to Use’ options. Try out the new options by creating or updating an existing IPMI/Redfish discovery job via the main menu, Discovery → IPMI/Redfish.
