Return to normal alert notifications

DPA 2020.2 adds the capability to send notifications via SNMP traps or e-mails when an alert’s status returns to normal. Orion® Platform and third-party alert managers can now synchronize their corresponding alert's status or take other actions such as reducing the priority of related incident tickets. 
 
The below configures an alert to send notifications to a distribution list when the status of the alert first returns to normal.

Trusted certificate management

DPA 2020.2 has added an option to view and manage trusted certificates that may be used in securing communications to databases. DPA can view certificates in the Java Trust Store. It can view and manage certificates (e.g., import and delete) in its own DPA Trust Store and restrict certificates to be Database specific. Currently, only PostgreSQL registrations can take advantage of DPA Trust Store certificates. All other types still leverage those in the Java Trust Store.

Certificate file types supported to import into the DPA Trust Store include: 

  • PKCS#12 (*.pf2 or *.pfx) 
  • JKS (*.jks)
  • JCEKS (*.jceks)
  • DER (*.der or *.cer)
  • PEM (*.pem, *.crt, *.ca-bundle)
