8.3.2 update #367 (2018-07-05)

  • NEW - Oracle orders visible directly:The Oracle orders tab has been moved up to the Oracle overview page. Functionally, this page hasn't changed, displaying a grid of all Oracle orders which can be filtered on column headers such as Order date and Organisation. The tab has been moved higher up in the information hierarchy to reduce the number of clicks needed to obtain Oracle order information. If no orders have been entered in the system, this tab will show a zero-order count.The Add Oracle order function is available in the header menu on the Orders tab, beside the Column selector function and the options menu, which provides export and refresh choices.
  • NEW - Security best practices: HTML headers have been updated to align with OWASP best practices, to protect against attacks such as clickjacking and MIME-sniffing.
  • NEW - Grid filtering added to search results: The list of hits resulting from a Search for computers or Search for applications can be filtered on column header to quickly refine the number of search hits. 
  • NEW - Role-based views for Oracle: What Oracle data is visible in Snow License Manager depends on the role of the user currently logged in and whether you have a license for the Oracle Management Option extension. It is now possible to configure and edit the object security and report access in Snow Management and Configuration Center (Snow MACC) to control access to Oracle data. It is possible to configure the visibility of the Enterprise menu and Oracle overview tab according to users' roles in Snow. Additional views and reports, such Oracle orders and databases are configurable for customers with the Oracle Management Option (OMO) extension.
  • NEW - First discovery of an application on a computer and when it was last seen: To better interpret when an application was first seen on a computer, Snow is developing a concept based on the date an application was discovered by our software recognition. This has proven a more reliable method than using the installation date provided by different operating systems.To support the discovered concept, the column First discovered, has been added to the views, Application details/Computers tab, and Computer details/Applications tab. The column Installed has been removed from Application details/Computers tab. The Firstdiscovered column has also been included in reports Blacklisted applications per computer and Blacklisted applications per user along with a new column heading Last discovered- which shows the date when the application was last recognized on a computer by software recognition.
  • FIX - The Database editions view under Oracle overview now loads all inventoried and discovered databases correctly for large organizations.
  • FIX - Sorting auto-connect rules in Snow Management and Configuration Center, now displays rules correctly in alphanumeric order. When deleting or editing a rule following sort, the correct rule is deleted/edited.
  • FIX - When adding a license for an application, the dropdown list of Stock-keeping units (SKUs) now only shows SKUs for licenses.
  • FIX - Cosmetic issues with custom reports have been resolved to ensure that columns do not expand beyond the limits of the browser window.
  • FIX - When changing the assignment type to User for licenses based on the metric Installations, the warning to delete the license no longer occurs. However, this action requires you to assign the license to a user. By clinking the link Assignment > following the text This assignment type requires you to assign users to the right of the assignment type dropdown, a new pane will appear enabling you to search for users.
  • FIX - The number of Underlicensed applications shown in the alert list on the default Snowboard now aligns correctly with the number shown in the Underlicensed applications report .
  • FIX - Adding compliance widgets to a Snowboard with other types of widget no longer causes a timeout in large environment.
  • FIX - The search hits resulting from a Search for computers and Search for applications with no additional search criteria and Organisation set to the root, now populates correctly, scrolling down through the search list no longer results in blank content.
  • FIX - It is now possible to Search for Computers and Search for applications on organizational nodes that are not checked as Legal organisation node in the Snow Management and Configuration Center (Snow MACC).
  • FIX - The communication timeout setting for the SQL server to import files and update existing computers with metadata for custom fields can now be configured in Snow License Manager - Web Configurator. The default value is set to 5 minutes.
  • FIX - The List all devices feature has been overhauled to ensure that the results grid is displayed correctly.
  • FIX - Multiple IPs detected by the Hyper-V SIM connector, which was causing incorrect mapping of VMs to the inventoried computers has been corrected to ensure that VMs and computers are now correctly matched.

8.3.1 update #363 (2018-06-07)

  • NEW - ORACLE FUNCTIONALITY CONSOLIDATION: All features and capabilities related to Oracle products have now been consolidated under the Oracle overview page accessible from the Enterprise menu item. Navigation to Oracle functionality has been moved, but the features and capabilities remain unchanged. Minor modifications have been made to the user interface to align the way Oracle data is presented with data presentation in the rest of the product. To facilitate visualization of options and management packs on database instances, information regarding Oracle instances is now presented in a separate tab on the Oracle Database Enterprise Edition view. Details can be viewed by selecting the instance.
  • NEW - SEARCH AND ARCHIVE: The Search for applications and Search for computers functions have been simplified to reduce the number of user clicks. As shown in Figure 1, the filtering on Organisation remains unchanged, but only a single default filter is now presented to the user,  enabling search results to be refined on user input application/computer name. Users can select additional filters by selecting the green plus sign to further refine search results, by, for example, selecting BIOS date and domain name (for computer searches) or license required and is bundle for applications. In addition to an improved search, computers can now be archived directly from the search results, by selecting them and choosing Archive computer from the menu. Computers archived in this way will no longer show in the search results.
  • NEW - REPORTS DIRECTLY IN OVERVIEW FOR OFFICE 365: A reports tab has been added to the Microsoft Office 365 overview, enabling users to access reports without having to switch to the Reports view.
  • FIX - The Show Applications hyperlink is again visible under the Financial info tab for computers with licensed applications installed for which costs have been added.
  • FIX - To calculate the license requirement for a SQL server instance deployed on a virtual server, the total number of resources – virtual processors and virtual cores – allocated to the virtual server needs to be determined. The data to calculate the total number of resources available is available under the Hardware tab for the virtual server. The result of multiplying the value for Number of Processors by the value shown for Cores per processor is consistent with the Virtual Processors Count total provided by the Clean Inventory Data Contract (CIDC)
  • FIX - SMTP user passwords are now hashed, so that and no longer presented in clear text in the Snow Management and Configuration Center (Snow MACC) .
  • FIX - When an application is set for re-harvesting, and is then removed from the Software store, it will no longer be listed for re-harvesting.
  • FIX - Object search results no longer truncates the number of hits to 1,000 records – all search results are now displayed.
  • FIX - The criteria Assignment Type is now supported in the All Licenses report .
  • FIX - The Alert list on the default Snowboard panel no longer causes time out or cannot load – all alerts are now shown, as expected.
  • FIX - When an application is installed on a single computer is removed, either through an uninstall or because the computer has been deleted, the license requirement and compliance values for the application are cleared correctly by running the compliance service .
  • FIX - It is now possible to view Computers or datacenters details when the compliance service is running – the timeout error “An error occurred on this page!” no longer occurs.
  • FIX - In Compliance Summary reports for applications licensed per installation, the value for initial equirement no longer differs from the value for initial requirement shown under the Compliance tab for the application.
  • FIX - Customers with a large number of custom fields and system users have been experiencing lengthy run times for system maintenance (Data Update Job) due to how these were being processed. In this release, processing has been optimized, and so these customers will experience a reduction in the time it takes for system maintenance to complete.

8.3 update #355 (2018-04-12)

  • NEW - The SaaS overview is a key new addition to the cloud functionality in Snow License Manager. Existing SaaS discovery and metering capabilities provide excellent insight into what SaaS applications are being used within the organization, who is using them, and how much. In this release, Snow License Manager can provide the vital other side of the SaaS picture: matching what's being used with purchases/subscription assignments and identifying cost.
    In this release, support is available for the following SaaS providers: Box, Cisco WebEx, DropBox, Google G Suite, Salesforce Sales Cloud, and ZenDesk. For each SaaS subscription purchased within the organization, the SaaS overview page shows the total number of user accounts and the percentage of accounts showing a login within the previous 30 days. The purpose: to provide a starting point for further investigation. SaaS overview enables the user to identify users that have been assigned with a subscription, if they are active, and how much subscriptions cost. Note: the SaaS connector for each SaaS provider needs to be setup and configured in Snow Integration Manager.
  • NEW - Oracle-related functionality continues to be developed under the Oracle overviewpage under the Enterprise menu, providing a consolidated view of all Oracle information. To ease the transition for users, Oracle functionality will continue to be available through existing menu items spread across the interface. This duplication will, however be removed in an upcoming release. Additional features in this release include: Oracle overview, Improved filtering, Order tab, Oracle database, Server tab 
  • NEW - As Office 365 subscriptions include several applications the relationship between a subscription and the applications it covers is one-to-many. To determine compliance, Office 365 applications need to be identified as covered by a subscription, which is based on users with an assigned subscription. Until now, the only way to determine coverage, was to manually assign each application as covered by a given subscription. In this release of Snow License Manager, applications are automatically marked as covered by the subscription, and compliance figures are correct. Note: users need to be linked for this feature to function correctly. ​
  • NEW - Snow License Manager provides deep insight into how Office 365 subscriptions are being consumed, specifically highlighting where a plan is not being used. While identifying unused subscriptions and users that can be moved to cheaper plans is great from a cost-savings perspective, action still needs to be taken in the IT environment – often in another system and sometimes by a completely different user than the Snow License Manager user. To enable actions to be taken in Snow License Manager, customers running Snow Automation Platform will gain access to additional functions – Remove users from subscription and Add users to subscription – on the Microsoft Office 365 pages. Once Snow Automation Platform is configured to poll Snow License Manager it will carry remove and add users as instructed directly in the Office 365 portal. This capability improves security by enabling Snow Automation Platform with Office 365 credentials, removing the need to provide elevated privileges to additional users.​
  • FIX - Database optimizations have enabled performance improvements in the scheduled compliance service with multiple CIDs. For new Snow License Manager installations, the default for running the compliance service is set to once daily 
  • FIX - Notifications are now triggered and sent to the configured e-mails depending on the notification settings for:
    • Category =: Computer; When = Update; and Criteria = Vendor
    • Category = License; When = Will Expire; and Criteria = Expires within number of days
    • Category = Agreement; When = Will Expire; and Criteria = Expires within number of days
  • FIX - It is now possible to configure when Notifications are sent, and notifications are sent once per pre-configured interval.
  • FIX - Step 17 of the Data Update Job – Computer software PVU metrics – no longer fails. In case of failure, the DUJ step is stopped, and an appropriate error message is logged.
  • FIX - Users can now delete and edit notifications under the Administration panel – update details, add criteria, and add group.
  • FIX - The list of "Will expire" agreements included in the notification e-mail, now only shows expired agreements within the time period pre-selected in the ''Expires within number of days'' .
  • FIX - A reporting issue, introduced in Snow License Manager 8.2.7, has been resolved, so that "Computers that are not inventoried" is now visible again.
