For update instructions, see our upgrade guide in the Fleet docs.

Highlights

  • Customize your organization's "Transparency" landing page.
  • Prioritize your vulnerability management efforts.
  • Automatically create Jira issues or Zendesk tickets for failing policies.
  • More accurate vulnerability detection for Ubuntu hosts.

Customize your organization's "Transparency" landing page

Available in Fleet Premium

Customize your "Transparency" landing page. Fleet Desktop gives end-users a Transparency landing page to see what information Fleet is able to access.

Fleet 4.16.0 adds settings for a custom Transparency URL. This allows you to use custom branding, as well as giving you control over what information you want to share with your end-users.

Prioritize your vulnerability management efforts

Available in Fleet Premium

Prioritize your vulnerability management efforts We've added EPSS probability scores, CVSS base scores, and CISA's known exploits to Fleet's vulnerability detection. This allows you to quickly categorize which threats need attention today, next week, next month, or "someday."

Automatically create Jira issues or Zendesk tickets for failing policies.

Available in Fleet Free & Fleet Premium

Automatically create Jira issues or Zendesk tickets for failing policies We've expanded our integration efforts to include Policies. You can configure Fleet to automatically create a Jira issue or Zendesk ticket when one or more hosts fails a specific policy. To add policies to your integrations in the Fleet UI, go to Policies >> Manage Automations and select the policies you'd like to monitor and the integration to use.

More accurate vulnerability detection for Ubuntu hosts.

Available in Fleet Free & Fleet Premium

Fleet now utilizes Open Vulnerability and Assement Language (OVAL) processing for Ubuntu hosts. Adding additional data sources increases the accuracy of detected vulnerabilities.

More new features, improvements, and bug fixes

In 4.16.0, we also:

  • Added software details page to the Fleet UI.

  • Improved live query experience by saving the state of selected targets and adding count of visible results when filtering columns.

  • Fixed an issue where the Device user page redirected to login if an expired session token was present.

  • Fixed an issue that caused a delay in availability of My device in Fleet Desktop.

  • Added support for custom headers for requests made to fleet instances by the fleetctl command.

  • Updated to an improved users query in every query we send to osquery.

  • Fixed no such table errors for mdm and munki_info for vanilla osquery MacOS hosts.

  • Fixed data inconsistencies in policy counts caused when a host was re-enrolled without a team or in a different one.

  • Fixed a bug affecting fleetctl debug archive and errors commands on Windows.

  • Added /api/_version_/fleet/device/{token}/policies to retrieve policies for a specific device. This endpoint can only be accessed with a premium license.

  • Added POST /targets/search and POST /targets/count API endpoints.

  • Updated GET /software, GET /software/{:id}, and GET /software/count endpoints to no include software that has been removed from hosts, but not cleaned up yet (orphaned).
