Opsview Cloud 6.7.5

Released: 6 September 2022

Issues fixed

These are the issues we have fixed in this release:

Issue key Description

ProCheckUp: Privileged administrative functions no longer require password.

When setting up Opsview Cloud system, the NOPASSWD flag has been removed from the users sudo configuration. This ensures users performing administrative functionality are asked to explicitly re-enter a strong password.


Notifications are now triggered not only when an object changes state but also when some configuration changes are applied that would have triggered a notification when the current state happened. This enables Opsview to notify new teams or individuals about existing problems in the system.


ProCheckUp - Opsview Software Version Disclosure (CVSS: 1.8).

ProCheckUp performed a round of web app pen testing.


When deploying Opsview, the deployment process completes correctly and no warnings are shown when running setup-everything/opsview.

OP-53939 Fixed an issue that generates an error Method not allowed in the Notification Profiles when clicking Objects Selected.
OP-53956 Fixed an issue in SSO/OAuth2 login that led to the Content Security Policy (CSP) error.

OP-54496 Idle session timer now works correctly before logging out.
OP-54562 Jasper server deployment now installs correctly when using Opsview managed database and external database using TLS.
