Withdraw of the 6.9.2 Release

Unfortunately, due to critical issues identified with version 6.9.2, we have decided to remove it and ensure it's no longer available for download. These issues impacted the ability to install or upgrade but none were security-related. We are diligently working to resolve these issues and are planning to release an updated version 6.9.3 in early May.

What if you've already upgraded?

For customers who have already upgraded to 6.9.2, no immediate action is required, as none of these issues are security-related. Once it's available, you will still be able to upgrade to 6.9.3 as normal. We appreciate your patience and trust as we continue to enhance our software to better serve you. Thank you for your understanding.

Security and encryption for variables

Opsview Monitor allows for arguments of variables to be encrypted on a system-wide basis. This means that an administrator can create a new Variable called %MYLOGINDETAILS%, with arg1 as the username and arg2 as the password.

Editing variables

The administrator can set the ‘arg2’ field as encrypted, meaning any value entered here cannot be retrieved once the ‘submit changes’ button is saved. The ’eye’ icon will show when text has been entered but not saved, whereas when the text has been saved, the text box below will show:

Encrypt variables

In the variable where an argument has been encrypted, the value entered can never be retrieved. It can however be reset, i.e. the password can be reset in the example above.

When the Variable above is added to a Host, the encrypted field can be seen below:

Override Password

An administrator/user can then choose to check the ‘Override Password’ box which will enable text entry:

By default, newly installed Opsview Monitor systems encrypt the password arguments of the following Variables:
