A new update has been released for Spider. Please see the included changes below.
To be notified of these kinds of product updates, please ensure that you have subscribed to theSpider Release blog.
The reports "Products with User-Based Metrics" and "User-Based Installations" introduced with the last version have been revised. In addition to a few minor corrections, the "User-Based Installations" report can be filtered directly to determine whether or not a software is being used from the user's point of view. Two new columns have been added: Used (employees) and Not used (employees). In this way, all software installations are taken into account that are installed on the employee's devices. In the case of multi-version coverage, all versions of a product are considered. This now enables a simplified evaluation of whether a user-based software is being used or not.
If a user which has originally been imported from the Active Directory is no longer part of the data delivery, this is displayed in the upper right tile in the edit form for employees.
The Spider UI now displays whether a GLAS evidence file or an LMS evidence file can be downloaded for Oracle databases (required Software Services version 1.2111.2).
Report results can be integrated as an Excel download in your own menu configurations. In this case, the report is generated as an Excel file and loaded for the user without displaying the report page.
The detail form for direct software assignments to employees could no longer be displayed. The manual creation of direct software assignments for employees was also no longer possible since the last update. Both have been fixed and are working again.
In certain cases, calculating the license requirements for multi-version coverage resulted in an error. This has been fixed.
In certain cases, calculating the license requirements for SUSE and Red Hat Linux resulted in an error. This has been fixed.
An error could occur during the product catalog synchronization when creating the selected product versions. This has been fixed.
