Ooooh! Despite the drop date of this fang-tastic release—the creepy darkness of All Hallow's Eve—there's no need to be afraid. There are no ghosts in the machines here. Just Auvik developers, delivering spooktacular Auvik updates.
Trick or treat? Definitely treat with the official rollout of our long-awaited SSO capability. Happy Pumpkin Day!
NEW! Single sign-on
You can now let your employees log into Auvik with their corporate credentials using SAML authentication with your identity provider, meaning your employees no longer have to remember another set of credentials and you can centralize access to Auvik in your identity provider. You can use a different SAML configuration on each site. You can also choose to have all users, or just selected users, use SAML authentication on a site. To get started with single sign-on, see How do I configure Auvik single sign-on with my identity provider? See Settings for a list of vendor-specific guides.
IMPROVED! FortiGate banner support
Auvik now manages pop-up warning banners that you’d normally see after logging into a FortiGate device. Auvik will automatically accept the notice and send you into the device.
NOTICE! Removing support for Linux collectors on Ubuntu 14.04
Ubuntu 14.04 reached the end of standard support in April 2019. On Sep 21, 2019, we removed support for Linux collectors running on Ubuntu 14.04.
Linux collectors running on Ubuntu 14.04 will officially stop working on Dec 31, 2020. You can now deploy the Auvik collector on Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic Beaver) by downloading and deploying an OVA.
We recommend replacing Ubuntu 14.04-based collectors as soon as possible to make sure your collectors continue to receive security updates for the underlying operating system.
NOTICE! Removing password support for collector, tunnel client, and Automate plugin installation
On Nov 30, you’ll no longer be able to use your password to install the Auvik collector, tunnel client, or ConnectWise Automate plugin. Instead, you’ll have to use your API key. See How to generate an API key for more information.
