  • New Password Requirements

    Auvik is updating password requirements for all user accounts on March 15th. Users using Google, Microsoft, or a corporate identity provider to log in to Auvik (SAML Single Sign-On) will not be impacted. API keys are also not impacted. Auvik is implementing this change to improve the security of user accounts and to meet new PCI DSS compliance requirements.

    Auvik users will be required to change their passwords at least once starting on March 15, 2024 as a proactive measure. Auvik users that have not changed their passwords by February 1, 2025 will be prompted to change their passwords in order to access Auvik. Here’s how you can update your password in Auvik.

    • Map - Sync entity selection with Search Results panel

      • When the user selects a device on the map while a search is active, the Search Results panel wasn’t updating accordingly, leading to a discrepancy between the selected device on the map and the displayed search results. This improvement ensures that there is sync between the two. i.e,

        • If the user selects on a device that’s inside the search results, the Search Results panel list will have that device selected to be in sync.

        • If the user selects on a device that’s outside of the search results, the Search Result index will reset and no device is selected on the list.

  • Coming Soon
    • Maps - “Focus on Selected Entity" button

      • On large maps, users often select a device and then pan to gather more insights. However, there's currently no easy way to refocus on the selected device after panning away. This enhancement adds a "Focus on the selected entity" button on the right side above the zoom buttons

Auvik SaaS Management (5)
  • Improved

    • Manifest v3 Support

      • Auvik SaaS Management Extensions is now fully supported via Google’s new extension standard - Manifest v3. Manifest v3 allows enhanced security, privacy, and performance for extensions within the Chromium ecosystem, and we are migrating to this new standard as Google plans to end-of-life the prior version in Summer 24. This browser extension update is handled automatically by Chrome and other Chromium browsers and no additional action is needed to get the latest extension update.

    • Compatibility with New Google OAuth Updates

      • Google has recently updated its OAuth and SSO Authentication pages to a new theme. We’ve updated our browser extension to continue to capture SSO events and User Account data from these newest versions.

  • Fixed

    • Resolved an issue in which usage charts weren’t properly generated.

  • Coming Soon

    • SSO Checklist and Visibility - See which applications discovered in your environment support single sign-on, and more importantly, identify opportunities to improve security posture by showing gaps in SSO coverage across your existing applications
