Issues Resolved:

  • Resolved issue in which a custom install location could be specified upon upgrade, resulting in an error.
  • Resolved issue in which scan data users grid incorrectly displayed Password Expired for some accounts.
  • Removed the Retina Product Usage Details by Organization report, resolving issue in which it would never return results in an environment that had no Retina scanners.
  • Resolved issue displaying the Description property of the user.
  • Resolved rare issue in which installing BeyondInsight 22.2 on a U-Series Appliance could crash due to BIAdmin service not starting.
  • Resolved issue in which the Configure HSM Credentials utility could crash when testing a new HSM credential if the Key Name field was left empty.

  • Resolved issue in which the first attempt to edit a BeyondInsight user from the User Details Edit form resulted in a form validation error.
  • Resolved issue in which unchecking the Unlimited Users box in the Scan Wizard prevented the No Enumerations Selected banner from displaying.

Known Issues:

  • Amazon and Salesforce functional accounts: secret keys are not applied properly from the Functional Account Configuration screen. Workaround: Assign functional account details from the Managed System Advanced Details screen.
  • When navigating away from a managed account scan credential that has been viewed but not changed, the user is prompted that they have unsaved changes. Workaround: Click Discard Changes to close the prompt. Nothing will be discarded as nothing was changed.
  • In some sections of the configuration area, the first time you select a different option from a dropdown, the update button may not enable. Workaround: Change the option at least one more time and this will enable the save changes button.
  • When creating or editing an Oracle database managed system, the Load button does not load the aliases. This issue will be addressed in a hotfix.
  • When rotating an SAP account credential, only the IP address of the system is used even if DNS is specified. Workaround: Ensure the SAP managed system IP address is correct.
  • In the Scan Wizard, the scan restrictions setting to abort a scan if it runs longer than N minutes does not abort the scan when N minutes have passed. Workaround: Allow the scan to finish, or use the Abort Scan function from the Active/Completed Scans grid to abort the scan.
  • The first attempt to Test Connector in the Connectors screen may report one or more fields are invalid. Workaround: The second attempt will run the test and the user can click the Test Connector button again.
  • Completing the Analytics and Reporting configuration but not running the sync job, and then attempting to launch the Analytics and Reporting configuration may incorrectly tell the user they cannot launch the Analytics and Reporting configuration because the sync job is running. Workaround: Run the sync job manually and wait for it to complete before launching the Analytics and Reporting Configuration Wizard again.
  • In the SAML configuration area, if you edit the Identifier field, the form may not save. Workaround: Delete the SAML config entry and create it again.
  • Some column adjustments on the Smart Rule grid may result in the grid size being reduced. Workaround: refresh the page to restore the correct grid proportions.
  • Toast messages, if not dismissed in a timely manner, can stack up and fill the page to the point that the Dismiss All button is no longer visible. Workaround: prevent by dismissing toast messages in a timely manner, or dismiss them one at a time until the Dismiss All button returns to view.
  • Pivoting the pivot grid can result in a column header displaying MDX code rather than English text. Workaround: avoid pivoting by ensuring you place the columns and rows where you want them to be.
  • Under certain circumstances, performing an account test on an HP-UX system may fail with a timeout.
  • If an Okta or SAML login fails, the error page shows a broken image link. Workaround: none; this is informational. We will have a resolution in a future release. Successful logins are not affected.
  • Accessibility: navigating via keyboard into an editable field within a radio button does not automatically select the radio button. Screen reader does not indicate to the user that there is a field within the radio button text. Workaround: use the mouse to select the radio button. This UX pattern will be revised in an upcoming release.
