    The new version CMDBuild READY2USE 2.1 has been released, with new features and based on the core code of CMDBuild 3.3.

    One of the main news of the  CMDBuild READY2USE 2.1 version concerns the introduction of a specific support for the Asset Manager in keeping under control the quality of the information stored in the CMDB.

    By defining the appropriate metrics, it will be possible, through a specific dashboard and some reports, to check the excessive “seniority” of the data (index of infrequent updates) and their possible incompleteness (information classified as important, not valued). It is also possible for the administrator to configure and differentiate the metrics parameters through a dedicated user interface.

    The following further main improvements are also present:

    • extension of the hardware catalog (models associated with asset cards);
    • improvements in the asset handling process (new reason for return from maintenance, evidence of the current operator, better integration with the Request Fulfillment process, new user interface to configure specific attributes to be filled in for the different types of assets);
    • review of SLA controls in the provision of services to users and implementation of a new control dashboard;
    • rewrite of the sync connector with VMware (now supports vCenter 6.7);
    • refactor of the sync connector with Zabbix, to collect and store information on faults and to start Incident Management processes;
    • new connector with Microsoft SCCM, for the synchronization of workplaces data.

      The version 3.3 of CMDBuild has been released.

      The new version includes:

      • the new features for the Document Managemen;
      • possibility to insert in the menu, hierarchies of data cards with configurable filters;
      • retrieve of the massive modification function of the data cards, and implementation of the new mass cancellation function;
      • improvements in the user interface: page help in data cards and processes, possibility of presenting some groups of attributes closed by default, opening in full screen mode of the HTML editor for text-type attributes, sums in the Master Detail pages;
      • extension of import/export templates and automatic task system to configure and automate the import of DWG floor plans and IFC BIM models;
      • improvements in the CSV/Excel files import/export templates, with import in ADD mode, use of the current filter in the export, formatting of dates and numbers, TAB separator;
      • new dashboard as the initial page of the Administration Module with indicators on the entities configured, the volume of data present, the growth trend, active services, etc.;
      • retrieve of the task for the scheduled sending of emails with reports attached;
      • new permissions on custom pages, custom components and GUI controls;

      Following a recent contact between Tecnoteca (CMDBuild maintainer) and the FactorFX (main OCS Inventory contributor), a collaboration relationship was born, which involves the rewriting of the current discovery connector included in CMDBuild READY2USE to support in the most complete and effective way the new version OCS Inventory 2.8 arriving in autumn 2020.

      The connector is used in CMDBuild READY2USE mainly for the synchronization of information relating to client computers in use (workstations) and collected directly in the field.

      The new version CMDBuild 3.1.1 has been released.

      In this maintenance version, we have solved some bugs and optimized some parts of the code. In particular:

      • in the Administration Module you can now define a personalized layout for the data cards of each class, operating on a virtual grid of rows and columns on which it is possible to position in a visual way (drag and drop) the class attributes;
      • has been modified the management of Boolean attributes, to distinguish in the user interface the case of null value (field never valued) from the case of false value;
      • has been improved the user interface for managing processes with parallel activities;
      • have been made available form triggers on processes for the execution of personalized behaviours (extension of the mechanism already available in normal classes);
      • bug fix.

      The new website of the CMDBuild Project is online. 
      The site has again been developed with the open source Plone CMS and has a new graphic template, to adapt to mobile devices.
