Spider 6.4.5-R3 update is available

Release Date: 2021-05-07

A new update has been released for Spider. Please see the included corrections below. 

To be notified of these kinds of product updates, please ensure that you have subscribed to the Spider Release blog.


License Metrics Procedures

  • Under certain circumstances, an incorrect license requirement of 2 was determined for cloud subscriptions. This behavior has been corrected. The affected versions are Spider 6.4.4 and Spider 6.4.5.

  • The license requirement for virtualized instances from Windows Server, SQL Server, and others was not calculated correctly. The behavior has been corrected. The affected version is Spider 6.4.5.


License Management

  • Excessive values in the number of licenses could lead to an overflow in specific compliance views or compliance calculation. This behavior can occur if several "unlimited" licenses are created in a product via the article catalog. These overflows are now prevented. The affected versions are all Spider 6.4 versions.

  • When an unlimited license was created from the article catalog, the value 999,999,999 was transferred. This has been corrected to 999,999. All Spider 6.4 versions are affected.
    This update does not update license values. Therefore, the quality report " Licenses that differ from the article catalog" can be used so that the licenses can be corrected. For each license in the report for which the number differs from the article catalog, the "Transfer values from the article" function in the license edit form can be used to adjust the data.

  • The determination of metering data for a product version could not terminate in certain data constellations, which means that the detailed form for the product version could not be opened. This behavior has been corrected. Only the Spider version 6.4.5 is affected.


  • Up to now, a maximum length of 30 characters was provided for passwords for connecting an Active Directory. The maximum length has been increased. All Spider 6.4 versions are affected.
