2023-11-29 PSAAS-15638 Paginating REST APIs without sorting may give duplicate results across pages. Also affects phantom.get_tasks() and phantom.get_notes() playbook APIs, when containers have >10 tasks or >10 notes, respectively

If using the REST API directly, add a sort parameter to the URL:

If using the phantom.get_tasks() or phantom.get_notes() playbook APIs, you can use phantom.requests instead to query the REST API directly:

# Instead of phantom.get_tasks(), use
url = phantom.build_phantom_rest_url('workbook_task')

# Or, instead of phantom.get_notes(), use
url = phantom.build_phantom_rest_url('note')

params = {'_filter_container': container['id'], 'page_size': 0, 'sort': 'id'}
response = phantom.requests.get(url, params=params)
tasks = response.json()['data']

2023-11-22 PSAAS-15543 Test connectivity for asset might result in "failed to send" and HTTP 500 "internal server" error for POST to /rest/asset/{id}

If your connectivity test runs longer than 30 seconds:
  • Keep the "Test Connectivity" window open and wait for the test to complete.
  • Ignore the 500 "internal server error" and the "Failed to send" notification.

Check for the assigned roles permissions for the repos
2023-10-27 PSAAS-15202 Password Vault: Asset not removed from "Assets with enabled password manager" table if all credential fields removed

No workaround.

If an asset in the "Assets with enabled password manager" table is empty, it is not available for use. It still exists in the table because a credential management field was deleted, preventing deletion of the asset from the table.

2023-10-27 PSAAS-15201 Password Vault: "Assets with enabled password manager" table can lead to Apps page without an asset selected

This issue occurs when you select the Edit button to view an asset from the "Assets with enabled password manager" table, then, after viewing its App configuration page, you use the browser's back button to return to the table. When you select Edit to view another asset from the table, the Apps configuration page for that asset is not pre-filled with the asset name and information.

After you have viewed one asset configuration page, use one of the following workarounds to avoid the issue:

  • Refresh the Password Vault browser page before selecting the Edit button for each asset you want to view.
  • Remember the name of the asset you want to view. Select the Edit button for that asset to open its Apps page. The Asset field will be blank. Select the name of the asset you want to view.
  • Right-click or Control-click the Edit button next to an asset to open it in a new tab.

2023-10-20 PSAAS-15120 Adding an empty repository on SOAR fails

Ensure that at least one commit is pushed to the playbook repo before adding it to SOAR
2023-10-20 PSAAS-15119 VPE Playbook conversion: Extra path added when converting classic VPE playbook to modern playbook

If your classic playbook has connections that are very close to each other, the modern playbook might create an extra connection.

Before you convert a playbook, spread out your playbook blocks so your connections are not close or overlapping. Then convert the playbook.

Review and test newly converted playbooks before marking them as active to ensure blocks and connectors appear and work correctly.
