For Downloads and Installation instructions please go to the following link and use your SaltStack Support Portal credentials.
Evaluation Period is 14 Days
SaltStack Enterprise (SSE) has a native licensing mechanism.
An installation of SSE without a License Key-File (LKF) is an Evaluation-Installation. The evaluation period of SSE without a LKF is 14 days.
At day 14, an installation of SSE that does not have a LKF applied to it will stop running.
Upon the application of a LKF to an Evaluation-Installation of SSE, the configured Evaluation-Installation will resume operation as a Licensed instance of SSE for the period defined in the LKF.
Use of the SecOps module requires a new license. If you would like a trial of the SaltStack for SecOps capabilities please reach out to your SaltStack sales person or SaltStack Support.
Key Known Issue
- Changing the LDAP or AD structure might prevent the SaltStack Enterprise LDAP/AD integration from pulling new users in from the directory. It might also prevent existing users from authenticating.
- If the Postgres DB is not set to use UTF-8, sorting will not be consistent across the application.
- Salt-run jobs do not work with the `route_cmd` method.
- Non-scheduled jobs will capture the job execution time in the master time zone. Scheduled jobs will capture job execution time in UTC. To sync these times, the master time zone must be set to UTC or there will be a discrepancy between jobs run at the same time on a schedule vs. from the command line.
Salt-SSH commands are running longer in SaltStack Enterprise than through the Salt CLI.
- Scheduled jobs display in the web console only if scheduled within the next 12 weeks.
- Job return numbers may differ from target numbers based on current key state and grain data.
- It is possible for a user to delete a target group which has a job running.
- If the user who created one or more schedules is deleted, schedules created by that user will stop working
- Role names cannot include any special characters.
- SaltStack Enterprise console fails to load for FireFox 60 (ESR release), Google Chrome or FireFox 62 is recommended
- SaltStack SecOps requires Salt version 2018.3.3 or later for Linux or Unix minions, and 2019.2.0 or higher for Windows minions.
- It is recommended SaltStack SecOps assessments and remediations are run weekly or biweekly for target groups greater than 1,000 minions. If run more frequently, the results table will quickly consume all available disk space.
