  • Fixed a problem that caused the LOGINventory Powershell (PSC.exe) to stop working
  • Fixed a problem that caused mails not to be sent when the option to “Insert data as HTML table” was selected
  • Display of task status in the tree structure: fixed a problem that caused unnecessary reloading of data
  • Migration from version 8: fixed a problem that reports that the “DatabaseProvider is missing or empty”
  • Saving of dynamic documents via task: Custom properties are correctly integrated into the document again
  • VMware scan: When reading stubs with multiple network adapters, the correct IPs & MAC addresses are now determined
  • CSV import: Custom properties are no longer automatically set to “editable by user” by the import, but keep their previous value
  • Linked Documents widget: Also when adding a new linked document, it can be opened directly in the dialog

Build 14658 (22.06.2022):

  • Breaking Change The Powershell module “ExchangeOnlineManagement” is now required to capture online Exchange servers (cloud servers), see manual.
  • Tasks:
    • New The query result set can now be inserted directly into the email content as an HTML table, eliminating the need to open the attachment to see the details.
    • Powershell scripts called via tasks are passed the additional parameter $caller, which contains the name of the calling task, see manual.
  • New Web API: The new Web API allows queries to be published as endpoints so that data in LOGINventory can be accessed using HTTP requests. This functionality is initially available in a beta version. To learn how to enable beta mode, click here. Read More

LOGINventory Version 9.1.0

Build 14377 (16.02.2022):

  • Migration for certain “SerialNumber” queries improved
  • Exchange Online Scan: All available mailbox information is gathered again

Build 14374 (14.02.2022):

  • New Automatic update of the owner possible: In the settings you can define that the owner is updated after X scans (recommendation: 5) with the same last logged in user. Attention: This setting is only enabled by default for new installations, for update installations you have to check the box yourself (if desired).
  • Topology:
    • Important Significant improvement in reliability and loading speed. Note: To optimize loading speed, a feature is used that is only supported from SQL Server 2016 onwards, which is why we now recommend at least SQL Server 2016. Older versions are still supported, but do not benefit as much from the speed optimization.
    • Important Improved calculation of connections when both CDP and LLDP data are available.
    • Calling topology below user templates no longer possible
  • Breaking Change Moved “DeviceInfo.Serialnumber” property to “HardwareAsset.Serialnumber”
  • Breaking Change “HardwareProducy.Warranty” (concatenated string of all warranty entries) removed
