What's new

This page helps administrators to upgrade their TeemIp instance and summarizes the improvements that have been brought to the product during its lifetime.

Localization

TeemIp is available in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish !

Special thanks to the following people who kindly contributed to the translation work:

  • Maria Laura Colantoni from Qinet for the Italian translation.
  • Miguel Turrubiates for the Spanish Castellano translation.
  • Michael Blank, David Gümbel and Martin Raenker from ITOMIG GmbH for the German translation.

TeemIp standalone relying on the iTop project, the translation of specific iTop dictionnaries is naturally inherited from that project.

    • Next to the attribute “Rate”, you can now document a “Burst Rate” and an “Underlying Rate”.

    • Next to the carrier reference, an internal reference can be documented.
    • A new “Move to production date” can be registered.
    • A new “Decommissioning date” attribute will tell you when your links has been obsoleted.

  • IP Requests
    • When a request for a new IP is created (directly or through the portal), requestors may ask to attach the IP to a specific device.

    • Contact tab now appears in the detail of an IP ticket.
    • On the portal, the list of attributes of the search filter has been extended.

    • Attribute “Type” is now visible in the Detail menu.
    • A new attribute “Rate” allows you to register date rate of the link.
  • IP Addresses
    • Allocation date can now be registered for IPs. This new attribute is automatically updated when status of the IP address moves into “allocated” state.
  • Search and filter on IP lists
    • The search menu is now displayed at the top of each list of IP objects (blocks, subnets, ranges and addresses). This allows you to filter and restrict the content of a list.

    • Display of Domain trees was resulting in an application error.

2.0

TeemIp 2.0 dated 2014, April 21st relies on iTop 2.0.2 version and therefore, benefits from all new features and all bug fixes of iTop's core modules.

  • Delegation of Subnet blocks
    • Blocks (v4 or v6) can now be delegated from an organization to a child organization. This can be done when the IP block is created or later on, during its lifecycle. Delegated blocks belong to the child organization and appear at the top of the child organization's IP plan.

The way IPs can be attached to CIs have been fully reviewed and enhanced. From now on:

  • IPs / CIs linkage
    • IPs may be attached to IP Interfaces, Virtual Machines (VMs) or Datacenter Devices (DDs).
    • IPs don't have any external key to CIs that may host IPs
    • A new tab is listing the CIs that an IP is attached to.
    • Attachement of an IP to a CI is done from the CI creation or modification menus.
    • The same IP can be attached to multiple IP Interfaces (case of an HSRP IP)
    • An IP Interface can be attached to multiple IPs
    • VMs and DDs are pointing to 1 IP at the most
    • A new status has been created: unassigned
    • IP status is automatically managed.
  • Miscellaneous fixes
    • Display of notification screen of the Admin tab was broken
    • Reconciliation keys were missing on some abstract classes Localization
  • IPv6 capability
    • The main noticeable feature that has been included within the 2.0-beta version is certainly the IPv6 capabilities: IPv6 blocks, IPv6 subnets, IPv6 ranges and IPv6 addresses can now be created and managed within TeemIp.
    • The same functions that were available to manage IPv4 space are available as well to manage IPv6 space:
      • split, shrink, expand blocks (note that, in IPv6, subnets have a set size of /64 that cannot be changed).
      • list & pick IPs, find space and export contents.
      • IP attributes of CMDB objects (like the management IP of Network Devices) can point to both IPv4 or IPv6 addresses.
  • IP Management
    • Minimum size of subnet blocks can be defined by administrator.
    • A subnet calculator has been integrated to the tool. It is available from the subnet (v4 or v6) menus.
    • Subnets can be attached to the new VLAN objects that are now part of iTop CMDB.
    • Subnets become and attribute of IP addresses
    • Gateway IP with predefined setup (IP subnet + 1, broadcast IP - 1, free allocation) is a new attribute of subnets.
    • Typology for IP ranges exists next to typology for IP addresses.
    • IP typologies have been grouped in the Data administration module, under Typology configuration.
    • Default IP setups have been moved into the Data adminstration module too.
    • Fully qualified domain names registered with IPs are relying on the new DNS domains objects.
    • MAC addresses are not attributes of IP addresses anymore but attributes of IP interfaces only.

A module dedicated to network management has been added. It contains objects that were already present in iTop 2.0.1 (IP interfaces) or in latest iTop 2.0.2 version (VLANs) as well as new objects;

  • Network Management
    • DNS domains
      • to align the FQDNs used within an organisation to the domain space of that organisation
      • for an easier administration of DNS assets purchased to an Internet Registrar
    • WAN links to manage carriers and lines between sites.
    • AS numbers to centralise in TeemIp administration of all network related assets.
  • Relations with CMDB objects
    • All IP addresses of CMDB objects are pointers to IPv4 or IPv6 addresses that do exist as objects in the data base.
    • IP addresses can be attached to physical or virtual interfaces.
    • Subnet and mask informations have been removed from all CMDB objects as these are attributes of the subnet that the object's IP belongs to.
  • Portal
    • TeemIp portal supports IPv6 objects: IP addresses and subnets, IPv4 or IPv6, can now be managed through that interface.
    • Portal look and feel has been improved, in alignement to what has been done on iTop's portal.
    • Users can provide a comment when closing their request.
  • Helpdesk
    • Features of Helpdesk and Change Management modules of TeemIp 1.0.1 have been merged into a single HelpDesk module. Goal of that modification is to simplify the management of the user requests made through the portal.
    • Automatic creation of IPs and subnets is still available
    • Both IPv6 and IPv4 address or subnets can be managed through the helpdesk.
    • A new parameter can be used to offset the creation of IPs within a subnet.
    • IPv4 and IPv6 offsets can be different.
    • Resolved request can now be reopen
  • Installation
    • All files and directories used within TeemIp standalone are now the same as the ones used within TeemIp as a module.
  • Data Model
    • TeemIp 2.0 data model has been significantly changed compared to TeemIp 1.x branch. In 1.x, IPv4 classes (addresse, ranges…) where all deriving from the same generic IPv4Object class. In 2.0, v4 and v6 class of a same type (like IPv4Subnet and IPv6Subnet) derive from a generic type class (IPSubnet) who all derive from the top level IPObject class.

1.0.1

TeemIp 1.0.1 dated 2013, July 29th relies on iTop and therefore, benefits from all new features and all bug fixes of iTop's core modules.

  • Miscellaneous fixes
    • Corrects a bug related to the usage of a function that is not supported by the core of the product anymore (DBUpdateTracked_Internal)
    • Modifies the way subnet gateways are calculated. These can, now, be the 1st IP of the subnet, the before last IP of the subnet (before the broadcast IP) or freely defined by the user.
    • Defines the minimum size of subnet blocks to 8 IPs. IPv4 space becoming a scarce resource, registrars do allocate now very small chunk of IPv4 as small as 8 IPs.
    • Implements all new bug corrections and features embedded within iTop 2.0.1.
