Support for RHEL 9

With the release of RHEL 9, the compliance service has also added the ability to deploy OpenSCAP policies for RHEL 9 systems.

Alerts and Notifications

The compliance service now supports the ability for users to subscribe to various events that may require immediate attention. The ability of Insights to alert users when these conditions are triggered makes for efficient and effective processes. The details of how this feature works is described in detail in a new blog that was released: Save time and money with Red Hat Insights Compliance reporting by Mohit Goyal and Marley Stipich (June 14, 2022)

5.1.3. Notifications and integrations

Service preview of Red Hat Insights application for Splunk is now available on Splunkbase marketplace

Insights for RHEL extends its ecosystem and integration capabilities by providing a bespoke Splunk application on the Splunkbase marketplace. This new feature facilitates ingestion and visualization of Insights events in Splunk and provides a quick, simple and secure path to drive Red Hat Insights adoption.

Red Hat Insights application for Splunk helps you:

  • Quickly and simply configure the forwarding of Insights events to Splunk
  • Visualize and explore Insights findings with a customizable dashboard and table
  • Correlate Insights findings and data from other sources in Splunk
  • Navigate back to Red Hat Insights from Splunk to get more details and remediations
  • Embed Red Hat Insights into existing corporate tooling and processes

New alert for Update to RBAC default access group default behavior group

A new Update to RBAC default access group default behavior group is provided by default in each account, allowing Org. Admin users to receive updates on RBAC changes when a new role is added, removed, or updated. In order to receive those updates, each admin user needs to be subscribed to RBAC events in User Preferences.

Bug fixes and UI enhancements

A couple of small bug fixes and enhancements are now available in Notifications, including:

  • Tables in Integrations and Event Log screens are now displaying relative time
  • Event Log is now gated behind notifications:events:read permission
  • A couple of UI issues are now fixed in the Splunk configuration wizard

5.1.4. Resource optimization

Executive report

The Executive Report provides executive decision makers with a summary of the status of their RHEL infrastructure, including system performance and the most common issues on non-optimized systems. It is available as a PDF. Because it targets users who may not be familiar with the exact terminology used by the resource optimization service, it includes a brief definition of those terms. This adds to the system list report and the historical data view previously introduced. These reports target our operations users. More enhancements to the executive report will be released soon.

The vulnerability service now supports granular permissions along with two canned roles that are provided: The Vulnerability administrator role and the Vulnerability viewer role. With the release of this feature, you can grant custom-level permissions per your organizational needs.

Insights Operator conditional gathering - service for update of conditional gatherers

The developed service enables Insights Operator to be remotely updated with new conditional gatherers that will trigger additional data collection in case a condition triggers it. This enables new types of recommendations to be created while still limiting the collected data set to be as minimal as possible.

Analysis of Hypershift clusters

Hypershift architecture changes the behavior of the monitoring stack. As part of the feature, verification and adjustments to enable the architecture occurred so you can receive our recommendations.
