August 2019

Version 8.2.6 of Alloy Navigator Enterprise is a maintenance release. It updates Alloy Audit Tools and resolves some issues reported in previous versions.

Audit Tools

Alloy Audit Tools have been updated to version 6.2.2. The new version includes the following changes:

  • Improved support for Windows:

    • Implemented proper detection of Windows 10 2019 LTSC (Long-Term Servicing Channel).

    • Fixed the issue with running the Inventory Analyzer on Windows XP Professional machines.

    • Now Windows service names are captured in the audit snapshot.

  • Resolved the issue with incorrectly reporting VRAM size on graphics cards with more than 4 GB of onboard memory.

  • Added detection of serial numbers for Autodesk AutoCAD 2020 and Microsoft Visual Studio 2019.

  • Resolved the issue with the Direct Network Scan failing to audit Linux distributions with Linux kernel 5.0.

  • The Audit Progress window has been updated with a modern look and feel.

  • Some labels in the Event Log section of audit snapshots have been updated to match the corresponding column headers in the Windows Event Viewer.

Resolved Issues

    • This version resolves a potential vulnerability that could allow users to impersonate technicians with Windows accounts.

    • Resolved the issue with Active Directory Synchronization failing to create Person records for Active Directory users containing special characters in their manager’s name.

    • The Web App (former Web Portal) no longer shows time in user-defined fields of Date type in hierarchical data views, such as Organizations and Locations.

    • Resolved the issue with potential data cross-posting in the Self Service Portal. The issue could occur when multiple users are simultaneously creating or updating objects of the same class (for example, submitting Service Requests) via wizard forms.

    • The Desktop App (former Main Console) no longer throws the "qryMain: Field not found" error when closing forms while the focus is on a user-defined lookup field.
