New Features and Enhancements

Multi-LDAP support

This release adds support for use of multiple LDAP servers in SecurityCenter (moved from the Configuration page to Resources > LDAP Servers). This allows users to provide access to SecurityCenter using multiple LDAP servers, and allows compliance with local security policies.. Users can also now set up multiple LDAP Query assets for use in scanning, dashboards, and reports. For more information, see the official documentation at


  • No support for duplicate names on a single LDAP Server: An LDAP Server could contain duplicate usernames. Currently, you cannot set up two SecurityCenter users who have the same LDAP names.
  • Customers will not be able to set up org and admin user roles that share a single LDAP user: Customers will need to create two LDAP users–one for an admin, and one for an org if they want one user to have access to two roles.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue with Agent Sync jobs in debug mode
  • Fixed an issue where the delete option would not display on View Scan Result page for Scan Result with "Error" status
  • Fixed an issue where the search field displays 'Search Undefined' instead of the content type of what is being searched when user is on any of the "Add Screens" (dashboard, report, component, ARC, or asset)
  • Fixed an issue where the times listed in SC Setup file of the diagnostics archive are improperly formatted
  • Fixed an issue where previewing an agent scanner with no results produces errors in the SC error log
  • Fixed an issue where the word total was getting cut off when a user was adding a table component
  • Fixed an issue where scans were being displayed as enabled when initially copied between groups
  • Fixed an issue with the "Enable Cached Fetching" setting when creating a user. Once you clicked into the policy to utilize the feature, you'd see that at the bottom of the policy on the plugins tab it would say “Caching disabled for current user. Enable Caching” even if enabled.
  • Fixed an issue where user was unable to upload Agent Scans when the Manager uses certificate authentication
  • Replaced SHA1 library to support IE11
  • Fixed login page so that username field is focused on load

Migration Notes

If an LDAP server was properly configured before migration, an LDAP Server will be created during migration. We strongly recommend that you copy all existing LDAP settings before migration. All organizations on the SC installation will be given access to this LDAP. Users can choose to go in and revoke access afterwards.

Other than that, no additional work is required to migrate existing LDAP setups in SecurityCenter.

Users can upgrade directly from 5.4.x or later to 5.5.2.

Users running versions of SecurityCenter earlier than 5.4.x need to first upgrade to 5.4.x, and then to 5.5.2.
