We are very excited to announce that Indeni 6.4 is available for download. This release brings many valuable features including:

Role-based Access Control

Role-based access control (RBAC) is the latest feature built into Indeni Rel 6.4. It is common for large enterprises to have operations teams that focus on the ongoing operations of the network, and dedicated IT teams that focus on security and networking functions. Administrators can now assign read-only roles to operators responsible for Indeni day to day operations. Support for RBAC is key to ensuring that administrators have tools to prevent unauthorized changes to the Indeni system.

Read-only Role

The administrator role can control all aspects of the system. Users with read-only role have limited functions. Functions that are not permitted are hidden. Users with read-only privilege cannot perform the following functions:

  1. System administration
    Users cannot configure LDAP and integration functions.
  2. User administration
    Although read-only users cannot add, delete or change user accounts information, they can change the settings when it comes to receiving issues preference via email based on the criticality of the issue.
  3. Device administration
    Users cannot add or remove devices, configure device settings including device credentials, device names and IP addresses. They cannot remove or modify labels. They cannot configure backups. However, they can put a device in suspend mode and resume operations of a device.
  4. Issue administration
    Users cannot configure the alert setting such as changing thresholds, severity or disabling rules. They can however archive issues.

   For more information, please refer to the Indeni 6.x User Guide – RBAC.

Change User Preference for LDAP Authenticated Users

Authentication can be handled locally by Indeni or by using Microsoft Active Directory service. Users that are authenticated by Active Directory can set what kind of notifications the user should receive based on the criticality of the issues.

For more information, please refer to the Indeni 6.4 User Guide – Configuring User Level Privileges.

Rules Visibility

We also added the source code for the rules to our developer portal (InDE – Indeni Development Environment).

From Issues -> Current, select the issue of interest. In this example, select “Debug mode enabled”, then click on the blue up arrow next to the blue Archive button, then select “Go To Rule File”, Indeni will navigate to the source code of the rule that generates the issue.
