Additionally, the DOQL view view_remotecollector_v1 has been added to allow customers to view details specific to each remote collector, including the RC name, discovery job information, scheduled jobs, and more.

Bug fixes

  • Tags were not being returned for view_dnszone_v1 and view_dnsrecords_v1. Fixed.
  • The OpenBSD agent was not correctly handling hostname precedence when importing devices. Fixed.
