Azure Tenant discovery, Discovery Hub enhancements and more in v18.11.03 Release

Release Date: October 24, 2023

Release Overview

In 18.11.03 we introduced Azure Discovery from the Tenant level, integrated SCCM discovery, and updates to Discovery Hub to allow re-running and scheduling of scans. We continue to convert pages to Vue, most recently Subnet Tree views. 

Azure Tenant Discovery

You are now able to use the Tenant ID to run Azure Discoveries in Device42. This is ideal for customers with large numbers of subscriptions or those who want to ensure they’re discovering all possible subscriptions. By simply entering the Tenant ID at the discovery job and checking “Discover all subscriptions”, all subscription data will be found and discovered. 

Discovery Hub

In 18.11.03, we added new functionality to Discovery Hub to re-run or schedule scans. Re-run is intended for running an existing Hub Scan on a previously scanned IP, IP range or CIDR block. 

Once you re-run the scan, any newly found IPs will display as shown below. You can acknowledge the results and add the IPs to your existing discovery jobs.

Scan scheduling is ideal for ranges where you expect frequent changes and want to ensure you are always discovering all our data. You can schedule scans in the same cadences as discovery jobs, however; Hub scans can be intensive so please consider this load when creating a schedule. 

SCCM Integration

SCCM Discovery is now integrated into the product. When you select Hypervisors / *nix / Windows Discovery jobs, SCCM is now an option in the platform field. If using SCCM in your environment, the Device42 SCCM integration can automatically sync the hardware and software inventory (CI) data to Device42. SCCM discovery that can discover devices, OS, CPU, memory, network and software from SCCM.

Records can now be deleted from the view/edit page

There is now a delete button at the bottom of the record view/edit page (if user has delete permissions).  When clicking “Delete” the user will be presented with a message to confirm the delete.

List Pages Conversion

Device42 continues to update its various list pages to our new format to improve their appearance and usability.  In this release we have updated 23 pages including Discovery scores, subnet tree, external integrations and device ignore rules.

Improved ACI Discovery

We have improved our ACI Discovery to better represent the data and structure of ACI. We now discover the cluster device, APIC devices, leaf and spine. We have also improved the connectivity data between the APIC, leaf, spine, remote servers and physical ports. This discovery is still located under “UCS/ACI/Load Balancers” in the Discovery menu.

Discovery of HPE OneView Chassis

HPE OneView Discovery now discovers both the blades and the chassis. This can be found on the Parts tab of the HPE device.
