Migration of CoPilot data is not supported across clouds. Data migration is supported across regions, availability zones, and VPCs/VNets within the same cloud. For instructions on migrating CoPilot data from one CoPilot instance to another, see About Migrating CoPilot Data in Aviatrix CoPilot Deployment Guide.

  • (Permissions) Improved read-only access views — CoPilot now hides/disables some actions in the UI for users logging in with a read-only account. Controller user accounts that belong to a group that have read_only permissions will no longer be able to perform certain actions: Saving and deleting filter groups (FlowIQ), saving and deleting topology layouts (Topology), deleting change-set data (Topology Replay), creating and deleting scaling policies (Performance), resolving and deleting alerts (Notifications), creating and deleting network domains (Security), and many more actions that are reserved for groups with all_write and all_security_write permissions.

  • (Login Page) New login page — The CoPilot login page now has a new look and feel and includes options for remembering your login credentials and resetting your password.

  • (Public Preview Features in Release 2.0.4) The following public preview feature is available in this release:

    • Micro-segmentation – Micro-segmentation provides granular network security policy enforcement for distributed applications in the cloud. It enables a unified network access policy model for your applications with distributed points of policy enforcement throughout your network. The micro-segmentation public preview feature is available starting from Controller release 6.7.1319. For information about micro-segmentation, see Secure Networking with Micro-Segmentation in the Aviatrix product documentation.
  • (Security - Public Preview Features) The Micro-segmentation public preview feature has the following enhancements (starting from Controller release 6.7.1319):

    • Micro-segmentation logging – For the micro-segmentation rules with logging enabled, a policy monitor is now introduced that shows which rules were hit by network traffic. The policy monitor displays logs that meet the criteria configured in your rules. You can filter the information by timestamp, related rule, and more criteria. You can also configure a retention period for how long to store the logs.
    • Micro-segmentation rule priority – You can now specify a priority number to the micro-segmentation rules you create. The priority number determines the order in which your rules are applied. A lower priority number indicates higher precedence, with the highest priority being 0.
    • Micro-segmentation system messages – You can now view a list of system messages about your micro-segmentation configurations by clicking the bell icon in the CoPilot action bar.
    • For information about micro-segmentation, see Secure Networking with Micro-Segmentation in the Aviatrix product documentation.

CoPilot Release 1.11.3 (5/23/2022)

  • (Security) GeoBlocking — You can now select a country to block IP traffic coming into and coming from the country. When GeoBlocking is enabled for a country, a tag-based security policy is implemented on each gateway to deny traffic for IP addresses associated with the country. All gateways in your VPC/VNets will block. When you unblock a country, the tag is removed from all gateways and the stateful firewall rules instantiated on them for that country are removed. For more information about GeoBlocking and how to enable it, see Enable GeoBlocking in Aviatrix CoPilot User Reference Guide.
    • Attention: A CSP-region IP may be blocked if that region is in the blocked country. For example, if the public IP for your service is registered in a specific country by the CSP and you block that country.
  • Performance improvements.
  • Minor bug fixes.

CoPilot Release 1.10.0, 1.10.1 (5/09/2022)

  • (Performance) Create Policies for Scaling Managed Resources — As in prior releases, CoPilot monitors the resource utilization (telemetry) data for all managed resources — gateways and controller — across your Aviatrix transit network (multi-cloud and single cloud). You can now create policies based on the telemetry data that guide you on when to replace or scale the managed resources up or down. When gateway virtual machines/instances exceed your policy thresholds, CoPilot generates a resource-scale alert. From the alerts page, you can scale up or down directly from CoPilot. When choosing the instance size, CoPilot displays the supported instance sizes for Aviatrix gateways in their respective cloud service provider. Policies are set on a per VPC/VNet basis. All gateways within the given VPC/VNet are monitored. You create the policies in CoPilot under Performance > Scaling > Policies. For information about creating resource-scale policies, see Resizing managed resources (gateways) based on policies in Aviatrix CoPilot User Reference Guide.
  • (Private Preview Features in Release 1.10.0) The following private preview feature is available in this release:
    • Micro-segmentation – Micro-segmentation provides granular network security policy enforcement for distributed applications in the cloud. It enables a unified network access policy model for your applications with distributed points of policy enforcement throughout your network. The micro-segmentation private preview feature is available starting from Controller release 6.7.1185. For information about micro-segmentation, see Secure Networking with Micro-Segmentation in the Aviatrix product documentation.
  • Performance improvements.
  • Minor bug fixes.

CoPilot Release 1.9.0, 1.9.1 (4/27/2022)

  • (Topology) Limit Topology Render — The Limit Topology Render configuration option is added to Settings > Advanced Settings > Topology Environment Settings. Enable this option if your network infrastructure is large and the full visible topology cannot be rendered in the topology map. In this case, you can still use the topology map feature by using filters to load scaled down portions of your topology. When this option is disabled (default), CoPilot will automatically attempt to load the full topology of your infrastructure in the map when the Topology page is opened. To enable the option, go to Settings > Advanced Settings > Topology Environment Settings, set the option to Enabled, and click Save.
  • (Security) Network Segmentation for inter-VPC/VNet connectivity (reachability) — You can now enable network segmentation in your Aviatrix Transit Network via the CoPilot user interface. Note the following points:
    • You can still enable network segmentation for inter-VPC/VNet connectivity using Aviatrix Controller (as in prior releases).
    • The term network domain used in CoPilot is synonymous with security domain used in Controller (the term security domain will eventually be deprecated).
    • The network segmentation configurations you set in Aviatrix Controller can be accessed and modified in Aviatrix CoPilot and vice versa.
    • When enabling network segmentation via CoPilot, you navigate to Security > Network Segmentation > Network Domain and click Transit Gateways to specify the Aviatrix transit gateways you want enabled for network segmentation. In the same view, you click + Network Domain to create your network domains and specify how the resources you associate with them are allowed to communicate with each other. For detailed instructions, see the discussion about enabling network segmentation using CoPilot in Aviatrix CoPilot User Reference Guide.
  • (Performance) Improvements to chart displays.

  • Minor bug fixes.

CoPilot Releases 1.8.0, 1.8.1, 1.8.2, 1.8.3 (4/05/2022), 1.8.4 (4/11/2022)

  • (Anomalies - New!) Network Behavior Analytics — You can now select any VPC/VNet(s) in your clouds to have CoPilot learn their behaviors based on a group of metrics and alert you when it detects anomalous behavior in them. When configured for network behavior analytics, CoPilot performs continuous network behavior analysis of the VPC/VNet workloads during a configurable learning period. The learned behavior or fingerprint is a behavioral baseline against which CoPilot can detect abnormal network operating patterns or anomalies. Anomalies could represent threats on your network, systems being down, high traffic for a planned launch, or some other abnormal behavior. For information about enabling network behavior analytics, see Working with Anomalies.
  • (FlowIQ) FlowIQ Filter by CSP Tags — You can now search for traffic using your cloud-native instance tags and VPC tags. Use the tags in FlowIQ filters that take an address field like Source Address or Destination Address. For example, to see traffic flows between business units, this filter group with the AND operand will show traffic flows between accounting and engineering resources where the CSP tag associated with each resource is Name = department and Value = accounting or engineering respectively

Source Address is equal to department accounting

Destination Address is equal to department engineering

  • (ThreatIQ with ThreatGuard) Prepend/Append ThreatGuard Rules — By default, ThreatGuard firewall rules append instantiated rules — Aviatrix Controller adds the ThreatGuard rule to the end of the rules list at the time the threat triggered the rule. You can now choose to have ThreatGuard firewall rules prepend instantiated rules where Aviatrix Controller adds the ThreatGuard rule to the beginning of the rules list at the time the threat triggered the rule. The prepend feature is available starting from Controller release 6.6.5544. From the ThreatIQ > ThreatGuard page, select the prepend option when configuring ThreatGuard blocking. For more information, see About ThreatGuard Firewall Rules.
  • (Notifications) Edit Alerts — You can now edit alert configurations. From the Notifications > Configure > Configured Alerts list, locate the alert and click on the blue pen icon. Make any changes needed to the name, condition, email recipient, or webhook payload and then click Update. For more information, see Edit Notifications.

  • (Reports) — You can create a report that summarizes the resource utilization (telemetry) data for Aviatrix gateways in a single cloud or across all clouds in your multi-cloud network. Of the approximately 80 performance metrics that CoPilot exposes (system and network metrics), you can select from any or all of them to report on for the time period you specify. Per gateway, when reporting on network metrics, CoPilot aggregates the metrics across all interfaces (default), or if specified, reports the metrics for each interface. The data in the report can be organized by gateway or by metric. The report can be exported in PDF. For information about creating a resource utilization report, see Create a Resource Utilization Report.
  • (Topology) — Search and filter for cloud native VPC/VNET/VCN tags — You can search and filter for VPC/VNET/VCN tags that you set in the native cloud service provider console. This feature is available starting from Controller release 6.6. To filter for VPC/VNET/VCN tags, from Topology, click the Toggle Filter slider to enable it. In the key list, under the CSP Tags category, select the VPC/VNET/VCN tag to filter for.
  • (Topology) — You can create and save topology filters. From the main topology page, click the Toggle Filter slider to access the filter editor page. See Create and Save Topology filters.
  • (Topology) When doing packet capture on a gateway from topology, you can now filter by virtual interfaces.
  • (FlowIQ) — The FlowIQ Records page format is improved.
  • (Performance) — In performance charts, CoPilot now shows the minimum and maximum values for metrics so you can see the absolute valleys and peaks for the metric within the selected timeframe.
  • SAML users on Aviatric Controller with admin permissions also have admin access in CoPilot.
  • (UI Improvement) — The auto-refresh component for setting the refresh interval in the Performance, Topology, and Settings > Resources pages is replaced by a button that takes up less space in the UI. Click on the button to set the refresh interval or disable auto-refresh for that page.
  • Performance improvements.

In the Packet Capture page, you can further filter on host and port number and specify the capture time. You can also search and filter by time, source address, destination address, source port, destination port, protocol, flags, length, and info. Click Start to start the capture, click Stop to stop the capture, then click Download to download the pcap file. The pcap file can be viewed by Wireshark.
  • (FlowIQ) You can now filter for information by gateway name using the new FlowIQ fields: src_gateway_name (Source Gateway), dest_gateway_name (Destination Gateway), and gw_gateway (Gateway Name).
  • (ThreatIQ) Custom ThreatIQ IP List — Network administrators can now maintain a list of IP addresses they consider to be threat IPs. For each IP address in the custom threat IP list, you can specify a custom severity, classification, color (for display in lists), and informational note. When a custom threat-IP list is added, and those threat IPs are detected, the threats are shown in the ThreatIQ map on the Dashboard. The custom threat IPs are handled by Aviatrix Controller in the same manner as the threat IPs identified through ThreatIQ with ThreatGuard (detection, blocking, and unblocking functionality is the same). In the current release, custom ThreatIQ IP lists must be created in CoPilot under ThreatIQ > Custom Threat List.
  • Support for expanding existing physical volumes — For data disks you already allocated to your CoPilot deployment, you can increase their size. After increasing their size via the CSP, log into CoPilot and go to Settings > Resources. In the Resources page, locate the physical volume in the Disk Usage table associated with the resized data disk and click its corresponding RESIZE button. CoPilot resizes the physical volume to match the size of your expanded disk. TIP: In the Disk Usage table, click the detail control ( ˅ ) to the left of the Filesystem column for each physical volume until you locate the enabled RESIZE button.
  • (Usability) Latency Charts now have cross hairs that are synced across all visible charts for easy correlation between metrics.

  • Performance improvements.

If you deploy Aviatrix CoPilot image version 1.5.1 from the marketplace, the following disk volume and auto-scaling features are now available:

  • New disk (volume) support — You can now allocate data disks (volumes) to your Aviatrix CoPilot deployment to be used for expandable storage. During instance creation in the marketplace, you can attach a data disk (data volume) to be used for CoPilot storage. When you deploy the instance, the initial setup process will automatically detect the disk/volume you attached during instance creation and format and attach your disks (a logical disk/volume is created from all physical disks). As your storage needs increase later (after deploying), you can also add more disks (volumes) as needed. See CoPilot Disk (Volume) Management for more information.
  • Auto-scaling memory support — CoPilot now supports automatic memory sizing for the ETL and datastore based on the physical memory of the instance at boot. New base images will default to these automatic settings, but existing deployments will keep their current configuration unless updated. Memory settings are still located under Settings > Configuration > Options.

Release 1.4.2.1

  • A patch update to the release 1.4.2
  • Improvement in scalability and security. Support 100k+ changes in topology diff and more than 250k tunnels in the cloud routes section (which is about 40MB of tunnels data rendered in less than 5 secs). We also made improvements to our middleware to secure CoPilot. We now logout the user immediately from accessing copilot data, if the user gets deleted from the Controller.

Release 1.4.2

  • Scale Scaled the cloud routes section to handle any number of routes, so for GWs with 10ks of routes is blazing fast. The Latency charts are scaled too to handle 1000s of charts each for one topology edge.
  • Search You can even search and highlight across 1000s of routes across GWs.
  • Bug fix We fixed our disk cleanup logic that periodically frees up space in the copilot instance for a user specified threshold percentage of free disk.
  • Bug fix We fixed some bugs in topology replay, talking of which, you can now hide/show highlited nodes to clear the clutter while viewing changed nodes.
  • Enhancement When you receive a ‘closed’ alert (email or webhook) it also contains what hosts were previously affected, so customers can use third party tools (like OpsGenie) to parse for fields of their interest.
  • Improvement Minor UX improvements
