New Affinity Group and Database Connectivity Widgets, AWS Roles Editor for AWS Cloud Autodiscovery and more in v17.03.00

Update Overview

Device42 v17.03.00 includes new Affinity Group and Database Connectivity dashboard widgets to give you additional visual insight into your ADM environment. And as part of our ongoing improvements to cloud autodiscovery, v17.03.00 includes a new AWS Role editor you can use to assign AWS Roles to AWS cloud discovery jobs to let you discover specific AWS accounts associated with those roles. AWS cloud discovery now also supports load balancer discovery to provide a more complete view of your cloud infrastructure. Device42 v17.03.00 also includes additional improvements and multiple bug fixes.

New Affinity Group Category and Database Connectivity Dashboard Widgets

The v17.03.00 dashboard now includes new widgets that display a pie chart for Affinity Group Categories (Application Layer, Database, Load Balancer, Web Server, and Other) and a scatter plot chart for Databases and Database Connections. Links in each chart take you to the relevant Affinity Group or Database pages.

Click the blue gear icon on the dashboard page to select the widgets you want to see.

AWS Roles Support for AWS Cloud Autodiscovery

Device42 v17.03.00 introduces an AWS Roles editor that you can use to define and add AWS Roles that you can then use when you create and run AWS cloud autodiscovery jobs to discover specific AWS accounts associated with those roles in addition to, or instead of,  discovering only your main AWS account. Select Resources > Secrets > AWS Roles to display the editor.

Your AWS Roles appear in the Available AWS Roles list when you create your AWS autodiscovery jobs. See AWS Cloud Autodiscovery for more information about editing and using AWS Roles.

AWS Elastic Load Balancer Autodiscovery

Device42 v17.03.00 AWS cloud autodiscovery now supports elastic load balancer discovery to give you a more complete view of your AWS cloud infrastructure. Click the Advanced Features (Show) tab on the Add/Edit AWS cloud autodiscovery page to select the different types of resources you want the job to discover (EBS, Databases, Load Balancer, etc.).  See AWS Cloud Autodiscovery for more information.

New Resources List Page Table Settings

In v17.03.00, the Resources list page now includes a Table Settings option you can use to select the columns you want the page display to make it easier to get at the information you want or need. On the list page, click Table Settings.

Device42 displays a list of the available table columns for the page. Select the columns you want, and then click Save. When you return to the page, it displays the columns you selected.

New Device42 Licensing Model Removes IP Address Limit
