CoPilot and Controller Interoperability

CoPilot is deployed as an all-in-one virtual appliance and is available on multiple clouds including AWS, Azure, GCP, and OCI Marketplaces. CoPilot works in tandem with Aviatrix Controller. In order to use CoPilot, you must have an operational Aviatrix Controller. CoPilot works with all Controller versions that are not End of Life (EOL).

For information about Aviatrix End of Engineering and End of Life (Support) policies or how to plan and update to the latest software, please contact Aviatrix Support.

For information about the availability of Aviatrix features when running different versions of Aviatrix Controller, see Aviatrix Feature Availability by Controller Version.

Important Notice when Upgrading to CoPilot 4.0.0 or later

Upgrade Impact for FlowIQ Behavior

While your CoPilot instance is upgrading to software version 4.0.0 or later (from a pre-4.0.0 software version), historical flow data records will be aggregated in order to implement FlowIQ performance improvements.

The aggregation process takes 1-48 hours depending on the size of your environment. For very large environments, the process could take up to 7 days. During this time, you can expect the following to occur:

  • The FlowIQ charts may show some data inconsistencies.

  • The CPU utilization of your CoPilot virtual machine will increase.

After FlowIQ performance improvements are completed, the following behavior change will take effect:

  • When querying a flow in the FlowIQ Overview, Trends, or Geo page, the page will load faster than before the upgrade.

  • The Flow IQ Overview, Trends, and Geo pages can show only the most recent 120 days of data.

    You can still view historical flow data earlier than the last 120 days by using the Flows and Records tabs.

For detailed information about FlowIQ performance improvements in CoPilot 4.0.0, see the FlowIQ Performance section of New Features in 4.0.

Editing UserVPN Profiles in CoPilot 4.2.0 or later

Note the following points regarding editing UserVPN profiles in CoPilot 4.2.0 or later:

  • If you previously created a profile that has a base policy of allow all that also includes an access control entry (policy item) of allow all, you cannot edit the profile. To edit the profile, you must first delete the allow-all policy item.

  • If you previously set a domain name as the target for an access control entry, you cannot edit the profile. To edit the profile, you must first change the domain name to a CIDR.

In both cases, you are not required to edit the profile. Policy rule behavior on your Aviatrix platform is not impacted if you choose to keep the profile unchanged.

4.10.1 Release Notes

Release Date: 12 June 2024

Corrected Issues in 4.10.1

Issue Description

AVX-53863

Users with RBAC profiles with write permissions but not read_only, were considered to be read-only users in CoPilot. Create/read/update/delete (CRUD) action buttons were not shown in the UI.

With the current fix, the behavior is as follows:

  • No permission group assigned to user = read-only user (no CRUD actions visible on CoPilot)

  • Only read_only group assigned to user = read-only user (no CRUD actions visible on CoPilot)

  • Only all_write group assigned to user = CRUD actions available on CoPilot

  • Any permission group assigned to user along with read_only = CRUD actions visible on CoPilot, but CRUD execution prevented by Controller.

    Example: If a user is assigned all_write_accounts and read_only, the user in CoPilot can view all CRUD actions. But when the user tries to perform a CRUD action, such as creating a gateway, the action fails with insufficient permissions.

4.10.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 31 May 2024

Corrected Issues in 4.10.0

Issue Description

AVX-53452

In CostIQ, the Cost Centers and Shared Services tabs do not display the buttons to add entries. This occurs when the tables are empty and do not contain rows.

Important Upgrade Notice

Aviatrix Gateways running an image version of 7.1.3958 and above will report Network Interface and Connection Status statistics on the new (renamed) interface names. As a result, the following will occur in CoPilot:

  • On Monitor > Performance, Monitor > FlowIQ, and Diagnostics > Cloud Routes: These pages will report using the new interface names.

  • On Monitor > Notifications: Existing Alerts configured on any of the renamed Network Interface and Connection Status interfaces will not work.

    You can update the alert configurations with the new interface names.

    The existing alerts whose interface names have been changed will be resolved. As a result, you will receive some emails about alerts being resolved.

3.9.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 25 April 2023

For new features introduced in CoPilot 3.9.0, see What’s New in CoPilot?

Important Notices for Release 3.9.0

Deprecation of memory_free System Metric

The system metric Memory Free (memory_free) used in CoPilot for configuring alerts had been using a definition that was inconsistent with the operating system (OS) definition; its definition is consistent with the metric Memory Available (memory_available).

As a result, alerts that were previously configured using the Memory Free (memory_free) metric are migrated to use memory available thresholds and their alert configurations will now show the condition memory_available.

In addition, all CoPilot lists from which metrics are selected will no longer show the Memory Free (memory_free) metric as an option. Charts such as those in CoPilot > Monitor > Performance page and CoPilot > Monitor > Notifications > Alert Configurations page will no longer show the memory_free metric.

UTC Timezone Required when Upgrading to Controller 7.0.1726

Starting with Aviatrix Controller software version 7.0.1726, the syslog format of log files exported by Aviatrix gateways no longer includes timezone information. As a result, when upgrading to Controller 7.0.1726 or later, you must set the timezone to "UTC" on your Controller. CoPilot software versions 3.9 and later require the timezone to be set to "UTC so that timestamp information can be interpreted correctly.

To set the timezone to "UTC":

  1. In Controller, open the Settings > Controller > Time > Change Timezone dialog.

  2. Select UTC from the list.

  3. Click OK.

Note the following:

  • The ability to set custom timezones is deprecated and will eventually be removed from the Controller when the Controller supports only UTC as the timezone for backend logs.

  • The CoPilot audit logs (shown in CoPilot > Administration > Audit) always assume a UTC timezone regardless of the custom timezone that may be set.

Issues Corrected in 3.9.0

Issue

Description

AVX-39763

CoPilot triggered false Gateway Status alerts when a gateway(s) was launched if an alert configuration based on gateway status existed.

CoPilot Release 2.0.4 (6/17/2022)

(Note: The following releases were built for internal use only: 2.0.0, 2.0.1, 2.0.2, 2.0.3)

  • (Application Administration) Data Migration — Starting with CoPilot release 2.0.4, you can now migrate data from one (source) CoPilot instance to another (destination) CoPilot instance. 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 (multicloud 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 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 the CoPilot documentation.

  • (Performance) Improvements to chart displays.

  • Performance improvements.

  • 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 ThreatIQ 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 multicloud 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.

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.

  • 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.

Deprecated Features in CoPilot

This section lists deprecated features in CoPilot.

Deprecated Topology Views

The following views in Topology are deprecated and are superseded by the New Topology Experience landing page which offers equal and improved functionality.

It is recommended to use the Topology Overview with New Topology Experience enabled and discontinue using the following views because they will eventually be removed:

  • Airspace > Topology > Overview View with Classic Experience enabled

  • Airspace > Topology > Transit View

  • Airspace > Topology > MCNA View

If you want to enable the classic experiences for Topology map, do the following:

  1. Go to the CoPilot > Settings > Configuration page, enable the Old Topology Experiences option, and click Save.

  2. In the Copilot > Cloud Fabric > Topology page, click on the New Topology Experience toggle.

    This disables the New Experience in the Overview tab and shows the Classic Experience and the Transit and MCNA tabs of the Topology page are also shown.
