Pandora FMS v6.0 SP3 just released!

This post is also available in : Spanish Japanese

Again we’ve been hard at work to make Pandora FMS work as best we can for you and we’re very proud to present Pandora FMS 6.0 SP3. Although SP2 came out only a few months ago, we felt it was still a little rough around the edges, and we haven’t rested until we felt comfortable with how it would look and perform in this new version. We are now sure that some of the most relevant trouble spots will be fixed and working correctly, and we highly recommend you update and install this new Service Pack.

Improvements and new features:

*Huge improvements and changes done on the editor for visual consoles and dashboards. Also, changed the physical aspect and user-friendliness on the elements for said consoles and dashboards. Code has been rewritten and has added features to show Visual Consoles and Dashboards in full screen mode.

*Improvements for the Pandora FMS helpdesk integration with Integria IMS: improved ticketing and inventory management.

*Integration with RMM software eHorus to provide remote desktop and command line management along with real time task management.

*New features for the CLI and API: included new macro <<get_module_id.>> for both CLI and API. Also allows  module group and policy creation, with complementary features.

* New integration with SAML authentication protocol. Especially focused toward educational institutions.

* Improved the update manager: added new user recognition features, which aim to provide users with a more customised experience when getting notifications and recommendations for updates on Pandora FMS.

* Improved behavior for the L2 Recon task and for views of network maps, giving a more accurate view on network maps. Both for OpenSource and Enterprise Edition maps.
