What’s New
Sybase Authentication - Password Encryption and Auto Discover Databases
/api/2.0/fo/auth/sybase/
This release introduces 2 new options for Sybase authentication - Password Encryption and Auto Discover Databases.

Password Encryption - Enable this option when your Sybase database instance requires an encrypted password for successful login. If password encryption is required and you do not enable this option then authentication will fail.

Auto Discover Databases - Enable this option and we'll find all Sybase database names on each host for you. This means you no longer have to create a separate Sybase record for each database name. Create one record with Auto Discover Databases enabled to authenticate to multiple databases on the same host.

 

PC - New MS Exchange Server Authentication API
/api/2.0/fo/auth/
Microsoft Exchange Server authentication is now supported for compliance scans. The new MS Exchange Server Authentication API (api/2.0/fo/auth/ms_exchange/) lets you list, create, update and delete MS Exchange Server authentication records. User permissions for this API are the same as other authentication record APIs. Note that the API supports authentication record creation only for MS Exchange Server installed on Windows.

 

New Support for Microsoft Azure Key Vault
/api/2.0/fo/auth/windows/
/api/2.0/fo/auth/unix/
/api/2.0/fo/auth/ms_sql/
/api/2.0/fo/auth/mysql/
/api/2.0/fo/auth/mariadb/
/api/2.0/fo/auth/mongodb/
/api/2.0/fo/auth/oracle/
/api/2.0/fo/auth/postgresql/
This new vault type can be used to retrieve authentication credentials from an Azure key vault. We updated the authentication vault API (create, update, list, view) and the authentication record API (create, update, list) to support the new vault type.

AWS API Updates
We have now added a new element named isPortalConnector. The new element is a boolean flag to indicate whether the AWS connector is also created in Portal module or not (Asset View). If not, you can set this element to true and automatically create the same connector in AssetView module. However, if the connector is created in AssetView as well, then the authentication information associated with the connector is linked to CloudView as well. If you update the authentication information for the connector in AssetView, it will automatically reflect in CloudView as well.
