With Release 8.0, Sunbird has further optimized the user experience and security of dcTrack by adding support for the security assertion markup language (SAML) 2.0 authentication process. SAML 2.0 support enables a single sign-on (SSO) experience, allowing users to use one set of credentials (password, two-factor authentication, etc.) to log into multiple tools, such as dcTrack, ServiceNow, PagerDuty, Puppet, and Splunk. Since the user’s credentials never leave the identify provider server, such as Okta, there are fewer opportunities for identities to be breached or stolen. Additional new features in dcTrack 8.0 include improved ease-of-use with the ability to move blades across multiple chassis via drag-and-drop and the ability to clone cabinets with internal power and data connections; enhanced automation with the ability to create, read, update, and delete power connections via RESTful APIs; and increased extensibility with the option to tag items for more meaningful reporting.
