Breaking Changes

  • RiskIQ EoL - Since RiskIQ will reach its end of life on June 30th 2024, NetObserv v7 will no longer support threat enrichment through RiskIQ. NetIntel threat enrichment will replace RiskIQ and is enabled by default.
  • Licensing - The NetObserv basic license now supports all 7400+ vendor specific flow fields (previously only supported 1020 fields). The community license has been downgraded to only support 500 flows per second per organization (previous limits was 4000 fps). If you are using a community license and need a higher flow rate, please use this form to sign up for a free 1 year basic license.
  • AWS VPC Flow logs - To set us up to deliver more flexible ways to retrieve flow logs (e.g. through Firehose) we needed to make some changes to the config fields for AWS VPC flow log enrichment. You need to change your configuration options to the new format to ensure you continue to receive VPC flow logs.
