  1. Monitoring: Add Zabbix / Nagios client

    A lot of us (at least with bigger environments) are using systems like Zabbix or Nagios to monitor their stuff.

    An direct integration of the clients into Astaro would it make a lot easier to integrate the Astaro boxes into it. SNMP alone does not provide a lot of values which are interesting to monitor. Like:
    - Packet filter violations
    - IPS stats
    - VPN Users online
    - and much more

      • Backup: Partial Backup/Restore

        Allow a user to create and restore backup files that contain only parts of the configuration.. users would be able to selectivly make use of various parts of the configuration in other firewalls, allowing for easier rollout of multi-site locations. As well, they can restore only parts of a backup file that are required, thus allowing for faster recovery and without affecting all areas of the box.

        • User Portal: Using nested Active Directory Groups in allowed users

          In the End User Portal I'm able to specify allowed users/ groups.

          Therefor I'm able to define a group based on a Active Directory group, limited to backend group membership.

          Now the limitation:
          The User Portal only accepts AD Groups which are directy related to AD-Users. The use of nested AD groups (Users --> AD-Group1 --> AD-Group2) are accepted by User Portal, but without any action.

          A needful enhancement would be the functionality of nested AD Groups, using in User Portal

              • make Sophos Endpoint updates by WebCID possible over HTTPS

                Please make it possible to use HTTPS for WebCID updates of the product Sophos Endpoint Protection. Now only HTTP is possible, this is undesirable because authentication details (credentials) are being sent over the internet in plain text.

                • Management: Archive backups like logs

                  UTM only supports automatic backups sent by email or to a UTM Manager repository.
                  It would be great to export them via SCP, FTP, Network Share like log files can.

                  • Management: Auto-Populate Networking Definitions via Scan

                    By scanning the local IP-space of connected/configured internal (non-gateway) interfaces, discovered IPs should be auto-added to the definitions list using their hostname as the title (if available) otherwise just fill in the IP for both the address and the name.

                    This saves admins having to define their objects from scratch, and they can always delete the object definitions they don't want/plan to use. This should be done either automatically, as part of the wizard, or on request.

                    • WebAdmin: Custom Administration Roles

                      Expand granularity of WebAdmin roles. Current access gives an "Office Manager" too much control across too many areas under each "manager" or "auditor" level term. We have the need to let one person Release Spam and add URLs to control office traffic

                      It would be nice if there was a list of available areas and operations with the ability for us to make a role composed of our selections.

                        • Management: Backup/Export mail quarantine, reports, database and logs to USB Hard Disk / Flash Drive

                          Backup or export the quarantine folders and other data not included in the backup files on the UTM. For example a mail being held in quarantine could be extremely important. If a device fails that data would be lost. Allowing external storage even just to a single restorable backup file would be a big selling point

                            • WebAdmin: Configuration Changes Commit/Rollback Support

                              Hi,

                              If should be great to save an history of the configuration each time an administrator save something and maybe create a restore point to rollback to the initial configuration if something does not work after some modifications.

                              Thanks,

                                    • add configuration change control to webadmin

                                      Here's what I see this feature looking like: When enabled, admins can make changes to the current config, but changes would not be applied to the running system, until the change control is approved.

                                      Approval should be configurable, so that only authorized users can approve a change control, and optionally, require more than one admin's approval to be approved.

                                      Multiple simultaneous change requests should be allowed, and the approval section should report the requested changes, and any changes which conflict with other requests. (i.e. two requests that edit the same object or value)

                                      Once approved, a request should able to…

                                      • grace period for expired license

                                        Please, provide a fixed grace period after the license expiration (5, 10 or more days).
                                        This prevents to disable the features licensed if for any kind of reason the admin was not able to install the new license.

                                        • add internet speed test to support tools

                                          Add an internet speed test (using something like speedtest-cli or a nagios check_speedtest-cli) to the management interface support tools. This check should bypass DPI, IPS/IDS, AV, etc. so users can tune the security services for optimal protection and speed. This could also be used as a reference when setting up QoS or even as variables in QoS settings as internet traffic speeds often are increased without user knowledge and the current QoS bandwidth settings are static. Periodically check internet speeds and report in the network graphics and executive reports.
