Introducing Robopack
We're excited to introduce our new add-on for Softwarecentral Plus.
• Get access to more than 19000 apps ready for SCCM and Intune deployment.
• Robopack integrates with Winget, Softwarecentral Plus and MS Store to provide an extensive library of packages.
• All packages are tested thoroughly on demand and are made available within 30 minutes after the vendor has released a new version.
• Please contact support@softwarecentral.com for a free and simple trial (setup time 10 minutes).

Intune only
Intune only installations no longer requires that the web server is a member of a domain.
All functionality like authentication, security roles and approval flows can now run on Microsoft Entra ID.

Intune Dashboards
Based on customer feedback, we have greatly optimized the performance of our Intune Dashboard.

Imporant information
In our effort to add support for the latest technologies, we have had to update some old .NET Framework libraries to their newer .NET Core counterparts.
This means that connections to databases are now actively enforced as encrypted. Don’t worry, connections were also encrypted before if your database was configured to it and had the proper certificates installed.
When you install this version of SoftwareCentral, the installer will let you know if the SSL certificate is missing on your SQL server or if something else is wrong to prevent encryption.
You will get the option to ignore this and continue or you can update the security on your database.
This will happen before the installation begins, so you can take action without interrupting your environment.

Also note that SQL logins are no longer considered safe, as this exposes the password in the connection string.
If you are using SQL login, it will be removed by the installer. If you want to keep using the SQL login, you must add this manually to the ConnectionString.xml file after the update.
The recommended authentication method for SQL databases is now Windows Authentication. We are working on introducing Microsoft Entra password authentication in a later update.

If you are using our “Untrusted domain”-solution and have a SoftwareCentral server in multiple domains without trust, but connected to the same database, then please contact us at support@softwarecentral.com before you install this update.

27-11-2023 - SoftwareCentral 23R4.1


SoftwareCentral 23R4.1 is now available for download.

Introducing our first version of SoftwareCentral that can run with Intune only.

Intune only
We're excited to introduce our brand new Intune-only version of SoftwareCentral.
It is no longer necessary to have a Configuration Manager to use SoftwareCentral.
It is the same version of SoftwareCentral that you install for Intune-only, co-management and Configuration Manager standalone versions.

Azure OpenID Authentication
SoftwareCentral now supports OpenID Connect. This also means that Windows Authentication is no longer required.
Your users can use single sign-on (SSO) between SoftwareCentral and your other OAuth-enabled applications.

Intune Dashboard
In this version we are introducing a new interface with multiple dashboards for Intune.
This interface is available in both the standard and Intune only version of SoftwareCentral.
Read more here.

New installer
We are also introducing a new installer for SoftwareCentral.
It now offers options to choose the Intune only version and the authentication method.
It is no longer possible to get the database scripts for manual execution, as they are dynamically generated depending on your settings.

Intune Applications

We urge all of our customers with any compliance issues, to reach out to us urgently, we will assist you.
It you need data for any third-party tool, please contact us and we will find a way to get it through the SoftwareCentral API.

Users can seamlessly switch between Intune tenants using a drop-down in the upper right corner.
Intune tenants can be assigned to security roles, so you can define which users have access to each tenant.

Important
Intune integration now only supports application authentication. This means that if you currently use user authentication, you must change to application authentication.

25-05-2022 - Security Issue with the Active Directory module


We have unfortunately found a security vulnerability with the Active Directory module
in SoftwareCentral that can potentially let users gain access to functions they are not permitted to access.

We therefor highly recommend that you install the latest update, version 22R2.1 as soon as possible.

To prevent this vulnerability from being compromised, we have disabled the Active Directory module for all customers.
The module will be automatically re-enabled after you have installed version 22R2.1.

The vulnerability affects all versions of SoftwareCentral for all customers with the Active Directory module.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience.
