This update covers platform releases over the last few months and other platform updates from NetFoundry. Release Notes of April, May & June 22 are covered in this bulletin. Highlights include the ability to search for services, an endpoint has access to via visualizer , launch of MFA support for Mac Desktop edge and additional cloud regions for spinning up new networks.
Launch of MFA support on Mac desktop edge:
MDE version starting 2.22 supports MFA. Please refer the support guide article to know more.
Improvements to events
The events report can be downloaded as a CSV.
Management events now include the resource type, description of the event and name of the component (resource) along with other details. Filters are available to drill down details.
Endpoint and router online / offline events are available under the network events section. The list is currently limited to 500 entries on the console but the CSV download can have upto 5000 entries.
Endpoints last seen
Endpoints last seen data was available under the individual endpoints in console. This data is now available under the endpoints list section and is part of the CSV that is downloadable.
JSON View for Power Users
Power users in the console can view the config of the network components as JSON view. This config lists details of ziti as well.
One of the ways to benefit from the JSON view is to check if there are sync issues between console (MOP) and ziti. The "difference detected" field in JSON would be "false" if there is no sync issue between MOP and ziti.
Go to the hamburger menu against the endpoints / services and click on "JSON"
Make sure to enable your power user profile before trying to look for the JSON view
Search for services an endpoint has access to:
The service search feature has been introduced under endpoint visualizer. This allows console admins to be able to search and find if an endpoint has access to a specific service of interest. This can be the starting point to troubleshoot config issues.
