We are happy to introduce OnApp 6.7 (6.7.0-19). This document lists features, improvements, and fixes implemented for all available OnApp components within the 6.7 Stable.  

Before You Upgrade

You can update to OnApp 6.7 Stable from OnApp 6.6. For details, refer to the Upgrade Guide

To test the upgrade, you may first simulate the upgrade process in the test environment. For the instructions, refer to the Configuring Control Panel Environment for Simulation Purposes page. 


Highlights

Here you can find the key features that we deliver as a part of OnApp 6.7. You can also check other features and improvements and see the list of issues that were fixed in OnApp 6.7.


Updated UI

We updated the user interface with the new look and feel for a number of pages. This version of the user interface is aimed to improve the user experience.




DB Partitioning

Added month-based range partitioning to the billing_statistics_hourly database table, which reduces the time for processing billing statistics queries up to five times as much and decreases the probability of issues related to the performance of the database.




User Accounts and User Groups

Now, you can view the list of IP addresses assigned to a user and a user's virtual servers, as well as the list of IP addresses assigned to a user within a particular user group and the list of IP addresses assigned to all the virtual servers of users within a user group.




Manage SSH Keys

Improved the SSH keys functionality with the option to view an SSH key’s name and creation date at the SSH-Keys page and added the Name option at the Create SSH-Key and Edit SSH-Key pages.




Virtual Server Disks

Now, you can make the disk size smaller than the template's disk size the VS is built on.


Virtual Server Recovery Points

After creating a Veeam recovery point, you can see its size synchronized from Veeam to OnApp Control Panel.


Bucket and Access Control

Now the user with the Administrator role can hide empty values in the access control and rate card of a bucket for their users after turning off the Show Empty Values permission for their users.


NSX-T Edge Gateway

In the Allocated IPs step of the NSX-T edge gateway creation wizard, added the IP Range option allowing you to select the range of available IP addresses and the Available IPs option you can use to configure sub-allocated IPs.


NSX-T IPSec VPN

Added the new functionality NSX-T IPSec VPN tunnels that allows using the secure connection between private and cloud networks.




NSX-T NAT Rules

Improved the NSX-T NAT rules functionality with the option to edit an NSX-T NAT rule and added a new group of the NSX-T NAT Rules permissions, which allow creating, updating, deleting, and viewing NSX-T NAT rules.





Orchestration Models

Added the ability to apply NSX-T provider resource pools in orchestration models that allows using NSX-T technology when creating and deploying orchestration models.




Migrate VM from vCenter to KVM with Windows Server 2022

Added the Windows Server 2022 option which you can select in the Distribution box at the Migrate to KVM page when migrating a virtual server from a vCenter instance to a KVM compute resource.
