9.5.10 Feature Release – 19 March 2022

The VSA 9.5.10 release includes enhancements and fixes described in the topics below. For minimum system and agent requirements, see these topics in the Kaseya R95 System Requirements Guide: Kaseya Server Minimum Requirements & Configuration and Agent Minimum Requirements.  

This release requires agent version 9.5.0.31. Be sure to update your Windows, Mac, and Linux agents after installing this release. Agents updated to this version cannot be used to communicate with servers running VSA versions prior to 9.5.8. 
In this release, we deprecated the “Kaseya 1.0” patch technology and “3rd-Party Software 1.0” profiles in the Software Management module. Our new enhanced native scanning technology is fully available, along with a superior software management catalog, fully managed by Kaseya. The migration is easy and with the tools provided it will take less than 10 minutes to implement. Support for the legacy technology will be discontinued within 30 days. Please, refer to the documentation for a detailed step-by-step migration guide: https://helpdesk.kaseya.com/hc/en-gb/articles/4419808335121.

Software Management  

In this release, we deprecated the “Kaseya 1.0” patch technology and “3rd-Party Software 1.0” profiles in the Software Management module. Our new enhanced native scanning technology is fully available, along with a superior software management catalog, fully managed by Kaseya. The migration is easy and with the tools provided it will take less than 10 minutes to implement. Support for the legacy technology will be discontinued within 30 days.

  • In this release, we have introduced an automatic patch rule where each action (Approve, Reject, Suppress) on a given patch on the Patch approval pages creates a rule to automatically perform the same action for all newly discovered instances of a given patch via scan procedure. Patch Approval page now incorporates 4 tabs:
      • Pending Review — the list of patches to review. 
      • Approved — the list of patches with an automatic rule set to «Approve». 
      • Rejected — the list of patches with an automatic rule set to «Reject».  
      • Suppressed —  the list of patches with an automatic rule set to «Suppress»

We have added a tool to migrate the 3rd-Party Software 1.0 Profile to a newer version. To open the dialog, click on the «Migrate 3rd-Party Software Profiles» on the ConfigurationSettings Migration tab.
U
sing the migration dialog, you can select old profiles you would like to migrate. Check Enable auto-update to automatically approve new software versions. Check Reassign machines to automatically reassign machines to the migrated profile.
Please review the list of migrated applications. In some circumstances, VSA can skip the transfer of a particular application version. Open the Application Logging page for details. In that case, you must manually add missing application versions.

IP Whitelisting for Personal Access Tokens 

  • To enhance API access security, we have added a new IP whitelisting capability to Personal Access Tokens for VSA administrators, to allow authentication only from specified IP addresses or networks. 

    9.5.10_Release_2.png

    • Each row must contain a single IPv4 address or subnet using valid CIDR notation. Examples are displayed in the UI.
    • On saving the token with one or more whitelist entries, API will accept requests using that token from specified IP addresses and networks only. Any attempt to authenticate with the token from other networks will be refused with a standard “authentication failed” response.
    • If the whitelist is empty, authentication will be accepted from any network that provides access to the VSA web interface. 

Enhancements

Agent Application Branding

  • We have removed Kaseya icon branding in various VSA agent files. 

Info Center

  • Moved Info Centre preview module to Info Centre Preview navigation.

      • Generic API to get all agent information.
        GET /assetmgmt/agent/{agentId}/settings/userprofile

    • Added a new API - /api/v1.5/discovery/networks- to get information about networks configured in Discovery > Networks > By Network.
