GitProtect v. 1.4.5 is now available! The first big change is easy to spot right after logging in (of course, after updating the application first). Just a small spoiler in the intro: in addition to daily reports, e-mail, and Slack notifications, your daily work will now be improved by a completely new system dashboard.
Extended monitoring with the new system dashboard
The system dashboard presents statistical data on performed tasks, recent backup tasks, and notifications. There is also a completely new element – the SLA section. This new view provides details about how secure all your resources, including GitHub, Bitbucket, GitLab, and Jira organizations, are.
Now you can select a custom time range: the last 24 hours or over 7, 14, and 30 days. I know that such information is crucial for you – and there is more to come. But I will tell you more about it another time.
Does your organization use Azure Active Directory, Okta, or CyberArk? If so, you will be pleased to hear that GitProtect now supports external identity providers using the SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) standard. The new service is available from the System Administrator level – from here you can easily add, modify and remove external identity providers.
Support for new Bitbucket metadata
The number of metadata which you can backup (and restore of course too) is constantly growing. We are happy to announce that GitProtect now supports also pipeline schedules, pipeline known hosts, branching model, branch restrictions, and pipeline settings.
DR and cross-over recovery 2.0
We made changes within the git restore process, which I’m sure you will appreciate. From now on in the second restore step – when the repositories and backup versions to restore are selected – you can choose which type of organization to restore the data to (GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket) or which device.
UX improvements within the organization dashboard
From now on you can display a list of repositories in the organization while clicking the Explore button (previously Manage&Restore). We also provide you with a restore shortcut. The Recovery button gives you a new (super)power – you get a complete list of repositories in your organization and an additional restore aside, which is ready to put your critical resources there. How to do it? To choose a repository to restore, tick the checkbox. Your repo will be automatically added to the restore step (with the last available version already chosen).
Version 1.4.5 also brings:
Storage usage presented in the group dashboard
In the previous release, the functionality of the groups was expanded and they gained e.g. their own dashboards. Now we have powered up the mentioned dashboards with a new set of data presenting the storage usage by all devices within that specific group.
Additional information about the duration of backup tasks in the plan dashboard
The central theme of this release is the dashboard(s). In this case, the new section presents how backup task duration changes over time for the specific plan.
Information about the backup type in the task details
With what kind of copy we are dealing with (full, differential, or incremental), during its execution, after it is finished, as well as in the logs.
New language support
We have great news for all our Italian users. From this release, GitProtect is also available in Italian! So now, our app supports six languages: English, Polish, Spanish, Ukrainian, Mandarin (traditional and simplified), and, of course, Italian.
