NetBox v3.5.0 Released

NetBox v3.5.0 is now available on GitHub.

Breaking Changes

  • The account field has been removed from the provider model. This information is now tracked using the new provider account model. Multiple accounts can be assigned per provider.
  • A minimum length of 50 characters is now enforced for the SECRET_KEY configuration parameter.
  • The JobResult model has been moved from the extras app to core and renamed to Job. Accordingly, its REST API endpoint has been moved from /api/extras/job-results/ to /api/core/jobs/.
  • The obj_type field on the Job model (previously JobResult) has been renamed to object_type for consistency with other models.
  • The JOBRESULT_RETENTION configuration parameter has been renamed to JOB_RETENTION.
  • The obj context variable is no longer passed when rendering custom links: Use object instead.
  • The REST API schema is now generated using the OpenAPI 3.0 spec
  • The URLs for the REST API schema documentation have changed:
    • /api/docs/ is now /api/schema/swagger-ui/
    • /api/redoc/ is now /api/schema/redoc/

New Features

Customizable Dashboard (#9416)

The static home view has been replaced with a fully customizable dashboard. Users can construct and rearrange their own personal dashboard to convey the information most pertinent to them. Supported widgets include object statistics, configurable object lists, RSS feeds, and notes, and we expect to continue adding new widgets over time.

Remote Data Sources (#11558)

NetBox now has the ability to synchronize arbitrary data from external sources through the new DataSource and DataFile models. Synchronized files are stored in the PostgreSQL database, and may be referenced and consumed by other NetBox models, such as export templates and config contexts. Currently, replication from local filesystem paths, git repositories, and Amazon S3 buckets is supported, and we expect to introduce additional backends in the near future.

Configuration Template Rendering (#11559)

This release introduces the ability to render device configurations from Jinja2 templates natively within NetBox, via both the UI and REST API. The new ConfigTemplate model stores template code (which may be defined locally or sourced from remote data files). The rendering engine passes data gleaned from both config contexts and request parameters to generate complete configurations suitable for direct application to network devices.

NAPALM Integration Plugin (#10520)

The NAPALM integration feature found in previous NetBox releases has been moved from the core application to a dedicated plugin. This allows greater control over the feature’s configuration and will unlock additional potential as a separate project.

ASN Ranges (#8550)

A new ASN range model has been introduced to facilitate the provisioning of new autonomous system numbers from within a prescribed range. For example, an administrator might define an ASN range of 65000-65099 to be used for internal site identification. This includes a REST API endpoint suitable for automatic provisioning, very similar to the allocation of available prefixes and IP addresses.

Provider Accounts (#9047)

A new model has been introduced to represent individual accounts within a common circuit provider. This replaces the account field on the provider model, enabling users to track multiple accounts per provider. New provider account instances will be created automatically during upgrade for all providers which currently have an account assigned. The assignment of individual circuits to a provider account remains optional.

Job-Triggered Webhooks (#8958)

Two new webhook trigger events have been introduced: job_start and job_end. These enable users to configure webhook to trigger when a background job starts or ends, respectively. This new functionality can be used, for example, to inform a remote system when a custom script has been executed.
