Version 2.4.4

Released: 27.08.2021

ImprovementBetter handling when an IPMI proxy is unreachable.
ImprovementImproved support for HP iLO and Supermicro KVM sessions via IPMI proxy.



Version 2.4.3

Released: 13.08.2021

FeatureUntil now, the 1:1 NAT proxy mode could only be activated globally. The 1:1 NAT mode can now be enabled individually per ACL group. If you are currently using 1:1 NAT, the module will automatically enable the mode for all groups. After updating the module you can remove the variable "$proxy_direct_traffic" from the customconfig.php file.
FeatureFor Developers: Implementation of Custom Output Data function.
ImprovementIf you use NOC-PS in conjunction with a reverse proxy due to the TLS issue and also have the KVM proxy in use, it may was not be possible to open KVM sessions. The module now rewrites the internal domain of NOC-PS so that the KVM session can be queried correctly even if a reverse proxy is used.
BugfixAfter deleting the primary IPMI & KVM proxy, another proxy was not automatically marked as the primary proxy. Now the module automatically selects the next available proxy as primary.

Version 2.4.1

Released: 07.06.2021

Version 2.4.0-b1 (BETA)

Released: 07.10.2020

For several months we have been collecting feedback from customers via a feedback form. We would like to thank everyone who participated. This has given us an excellent insight into what our customers want and where we need to make improvements.

Important to know

Even if there have been major code changes, the module still works with the same functional scope as before. There are no breaking changes.

New plugin system

In this release a plugin system was integrated and parts of the code were reorganized and rewritten. The plugin system allows us to deliver new features faster and gives us a certain flexibility. Even though the changelog doesn't look big, a lot has changed code-wise. Due to the complexity of the changes, we will first release a beta version. There will be several more changes until the stable version is released and we would be happy if you participate in the beta test and report any bugs.

Extensibility of the module

The independent expandability of the module was always important to us. For a long time now, the module supports different possibilities to intervene in the code technically via hooks and via various PHP functions. With the new plugin system the possibilities are extended even more, since it is possible that users of the module can integrate plugins themselves.

The documentation for creating your own plugins will be published at a later date.

First Plugin: Reverse DNS Management

In our survey the possibility to manage reverse DNS records was one of the most requested features. This has been integrated in this release, via the mentioned plugin system. 

Roadmap until the release of the stable version

We will release another beta soon, which includes more template changes. The template of the client area will be reworked to better integrate the reverse dns management and also the module admin page will be improved.

After the 2nd beta has been released, a release canditate will be released after sufficient tests. It is planned to release the stable version within the next 60 days. We want to take enough time to ensure that a flawless stable version is released.

The creation of more detailed documentation regarding the new functions is being worked on. These will be published when the stable version is released.

This release is a beta release. This means, the module should be tested in a developer environment and not in production. If you should test the module in production and find fatal bugs, you can simply delete the module and upload the last stable version. No settings will be lost.

InfoThis release contains template changes.

This release contains language changes.

FeatureImplementation of a plugin system (see above for information)
PluginRelease of reverse DNS management plugin (only IPv4 at the moment)
ImprovementThe ACL group page was graphically revised.
ImprovementTo minimize the amount of text, IP Manager and Server manager will no longer show the company name of the customer but only firstname and lastname.
BugfixOn the server management page, clicking on "ACL Group: <name>" displayed an empty popover. This has been fixed, now the permissions of the respective ACL are displayed again.



New documentation pages:



Version 2.3.2

Released: 30.09.2020

ImprovementPossibility to test bandwidth accounting and improved logging.

Workaround for WHMCS bug CORE-15299. WHMCS doesn't delete old configurable option group assignments from the database. This workaround validates that the module queries the correct configurable option. The bug can cause the module to detect an incorrect bandwidth limit if you use a bandwidth configurable option group and you replace the option group later with a newly created configurable option group.

BugfixThe module automatically detects when you move a dedicated server between 2 NOC-PS servers. This is recorded as "Instance Movement" in the module log. Due to an error, this did not always work, so the automatic provisioning of servers might failed when using multiple NOC-PS servers.



Version 2.3.1

Released: 25.08.2020


This version fixes an issue where under certain circumstances on the "Server Management" page a wrong server owner was shown.

InfoFrom now on, changes in the documentation will be noted in the right column next to the changelog
FeatureIPMI Proxy: Ability for 1:1 NAT

It is now possible to run a pre-profile before installing the operating system. This allows, for example, to delete the metadata on the hard disks and prevent conflicts during the operating system installation. If you enable this option, make sure that the recovery systems are correctly defined in the module settings.  Otherwise, the pre-installer will also be executed on recovery boots.
FeatureOption to disable the KVM availibility checks on the client area page
FeatureOption to disable automatic provisioning of server if the server is currently online
FeatureOption to disable automatic provisioning of server if the server is currently being installed via NOC-PS.
This prevents servers that have just been terminated from being delivered before the NOC-PS wipe profile is completed.
FeatureA new option is available in the module settings, which allows old installation logs to be automatically deleted from the database after a certain number of days
ImprovementDue to the SSL-Checker of WHMCS the AJAX requests were slow under circumstances. The AJAX requests are now sent to another address so that the SSL Checker is not executed. This only affects the client area.
ImprovementSome special characters are not processed by NOC-PS. The clientarea template was extended by an HTML5 input pattern. If the customer enters invalid characters during a new installation, a corresponding message appears now.
ImprovementIf an error occurs when opening KVM, the error is now better logged in the module log
ImprovementIt is now ensured that the boxes on the "Server Management" page are the same size. Before, it could happen that there is too much vertical space between the boxes
