Important Security Updates
This release contains important security updates. We recommend that on-premises customers update to this release as soon as possible (No action is required for SaaS customers as updates are automatically applied).
Launching a Live Connect session from a third-party application using a Custom URL Scheme with a REST API token that was obtained using the basic authentication method (username + password combination) is no longer supported. The REST API token must now be obtained using a Personal Access Token (PAT).
Note: as per deprecation notice below, customers and integration partners must transition to Personal Access Tokens for API authentication no later than October 31st, 2022.
Basic authentication to REST API will be disabled in Q4, 2022. After that, it will no longer be possible to authenticate REST API requests using a standard VSA Username and Password combination. To continue working with the REST API you will need to authenticate via OAuth 2.0 or a Personal Access Token. Please review this KB article for guidelines on migrating from Basic to PAT authentication method - https://helpdesk.kaseya.com/hc/en-gb/articles/8830422710033
Customers and integration partners must complete this transition no later than October 31st, 2022.
- Fixed an issue where calls to GET /assetmgmt/agents would fail due to malformed CPU audit data from macOS agents.
