New features and enhancements

  1. MITRE ATT&CK - The MITRE ATT&CK framework has been updated to include ATT&CK v 14.1 and prior versions. (CFP-1442)

  2. Improved event logging: Event logging is more selective now, reducing the size of .eventlog files and optimizing scalability. (PRE-429)

  3. Localization: Localized to Japanese the option to open in a new tab embedded videos within a structured content plan. (PRTL-3383)


  1. Nessus virtual machine template is incorrect: The Nessus virtual machine template was incorrect and the config modules were missing. Now, the correct template is selected and the config modules are included. (PRTL-3520)

  2. Sharing settings hang when there are no sharing targets: Fixed an issue where, when sharing an item in Network Design or Content Authoring, if a user removed the users that the item was shared with and then saved the item, the sharing option would hang. Now, the sharing settings appear even when there are no users with whom the item is shared. (PRTL-2715)

  3. Error when viewing PDFs in Ticket Correlation: Viewing PDF files in Live Action Event > Ticket Correlation resulted in an access error. Now, you can view PDFs from Ticket Correlation without error. (PRTL-3458)

  4. No hover text on long range names: In Events > Live Action Events, when viewing an event with a long range name, the name of the associated deployed network was truncated, but no hover text appeared when mousing over the name that showed the full name. Now, hovering over the truncated name displays hover text with the full name. (PRTL-2997)

  5. Live action plan performance: When adding or changing a network in a live action plan, performance was poor. Now, adding or changing a network in a live action plan performs as expected. (PRTL-3217)

Version 6.12 

New features and enhancements

  1. Live action event reporting PDF export: Reports for live action events can now be exported in PDF format. (PRTL-3238)

  2. User emulation 14.5 release:. User emulation has been updated to 14.5.


  1. Training catalog and validated ribbon: The Training catalog did not show the validated ribbon on content that was validated. Now, content that is validated will show the validated ribbon in the Training catalog. (PRTL-3298)

  2. Manage users: Fixed an issue that caused Portal Admins to lose the ability to manage certain users. (PRTL-2020)

  3. Long file name limit: Long file names exceeding 100 encoded characters resulted in unhelpful error messages. Now, users are properly informed of the filename character limit. (PRTL-1567)

Version 6.11 

New features and enhancements

  1. User interface graphic and text improvements: Several updates were made to the user interface to provide consistent and correct UI function, graphics, and text messages. (PRTL-1162, PRTL-2239, PRTL-1666, PRTL-28, PRTL-3000, PRTL-3111, PRTL-3192)

  2. Error reporting updates: Additional toast messages were added to improve the user experience when there is a process failure. Now, users are better informed about the problems experienced and how to resolve the initiating condition. (PRTL-2967)


  1. Console authentication error: Fixed an issue in Events where a user with “Red (Threat) Team” + “Attack Reviewer” live action event roles was able to open virtual machines but received “Connection Attempt Failed” when the event was in Execution and Fight’s On phases. Now, users are properly authenticated to the console in all live action event phases. (PRTL-2112)

  2. Windows 10 template: Fixed an issue in the Network Spec Wizard where an incorrect virtual machine image was used when users selected a Windows 10 virtual machine. Now, the correct virtual machine template is used when Windows 10 is selected. (PRTL-3208)

  3. Keycloak Single Sign-On logout failure: Resolved a problem where users received a “redirect_url” error when logging out. Now, users are logged out correctly. (PRTL-3207)

  4. Empty deployment build logs: Fixed a problem in Network Design where deployment build logs vanished when a user aborted the deployment and the range-server restarted. Now, a message detailing the reason for the abort is written to the logs. (PRTL-3134)

  5. Send to Download: Corrected a few menus that gave the option to Send to Download where that functionality did not exist. Now, Send to Download only appears where it is possible to download the information. (PRTL-3009)

  6. Past dates: Fixed a problem in Network Design where users were able to select past dates for deployment reservations, including dates before the deployment start date. Now, users cannot select dates before the start date. (PRTL-2276)

  7. Multiple content modules and task chains: Resolved an issue in Events where structured content events with multiple content modules or one content module with multiple task chains were hard to differentiate in the CSV export of the event results. Now, the content module and task names are used to increase readability of the exported results. (PRTL-3131)


Version 6.10 

New features and enhancements

  1. Content import speed improvements: An update of RClone greatly improved transfer rates due to added support for multi-threading. This significantly reduces the time required to import content.


  1. MTO Group names: Fixed an issue where MTO Group names were cleared after renaming. Now, renaming of MTO Groups works as expected.

  2. Analytics Dashboard not loading: Fixed an issue where the Analytics Dashboard didn’t load for Training Managers. Now, training managers can see the Analytics Dashboard.

  3. Team readiness override:Fixed a problem where Organizational Administrators were unable to override an individual’s readiness if they were part of a team that had readiness requirements that were not completed. Now, Org Admins can override an individual’s readiness, and team readiness changes to “ready” once all individuals on the team have completed their readiness requirements.

  4. Recursive clone source references: Fixed an issue where clone sources that referenced another clone source, and that were created before the delete clone source ability was added, could not be removed. Now, clone source references can be removed regardless of when they were created. 

  5. Permissions missing: Fixed a problem where Organizational Administrators were unable to assign Candidate Management permissions to custom roles. Now, Org Admins can select the Candidate Management permission to assign to custom roles.

  6. Improved error handling: Fixed an issue where Organizational Administrators trying to attach files with names longer than 105 characters to content modules did not receive an error message even though the file failed to attach. Now, Org Admins receive a descriptive error message when files fail to attach.


Version 6.9

New features and enhancements

  1. Maintain formatting in pasted text: Text now retains more of its original formatting when copied from Google Docs into a content module task.

  2. Improved Japanese translation: Added Japanese translations for the scheduler.

  3. Improved shutdown: Users now receive confirmation on range shut down. If a shutdown is already in progress, actions are now disabled.

  4. Live action event and range shutdown: Improved error messages when a range shutdown fails due to missing VMWare Tools.


  1. Quota calculation after an MTO group with a reservation is moved: Fixed a problem where when an MTO group with a reservation was moved up in the organization tree, quotas were incorrectly calculated. Now, quotas are calculated correctly even when an MTO group is moved.

  2. Deployment target creation and editing: Resolved an issue where problems with the VCenter or NSX password resulted in a 500 server error when creating or editing deployment targets. Now, users receive a meaningful error message so they can correct the password issues.

  3. Content modules with range management VMs: Resolved an issue where content modules could be created with VMs that were tagged as anything other than vm1, vm2, or BLUE. This resulted in the user not having the option to open a VM Console. Now, users cannot create content modules that include VMs intended for range management, and can select only those VMs with tags of vm1, vm2, or BLUE.  

  4. VCenter content import: Resolved an issue where importing many OVAs into VCenter resulted in failure. Now, imports are staggered so the process completes successfully.

  5. Retry button visibility: Resolved an issue where in structured content events and candidate assessments, the retry button was briefly visible when no retries remained. Now, the retry button is not visible, and the user can only choose to continue.

  6. Procedure complete: Fixed an issue where successful procedures were not updated with the correct status. Procedure status is now processed correctly, so that all successful procedures are updated with ‘Complete’ status.

  7. Content module task deletion: Fixed an issue where tasks deleted from a content module would reappear or remain visible. Now, tasks deleted are permanently removed from the content module.

  8. Learning path scrolling: Fixed an issue where users couldn’t scroll when viewing learning path requirements. Now, users can view the entire requirements list.

  9. Add multiple SCPs to a circuit: Fixed an issue where check marks are not cleared after adding an SCP to a circuit. This resulted in an error message about the SCP already existing in the circuit. Now, the check mark is cleared, and it is possible to add additional SCPs.


Version 6.8

New features and enhancements

  1. Maintain formatting in pasted text: Text now retains more of its original formatting when copied from Google Docs into a content module task.

  2. Redirect on declined login consent: Users who don’t accept the User Login Consent Form are now redirected. 

  3. Improved MTO sorting: MTO group and organization administrators can now filter the organization tree by "Last Deployed By" and "Resource Provider."

  4. Range action confirmations: You now receive confirmation notices when shutting down or deleting ranges. 

  5. Selectable VMs for clone sources: You can now create clone sources in the Network Design app based on a selected subset of a network specification’s virtual machines, rather than having to include all of its virtual machines. 


  1. Expired reservation status: Fixed issue where expired reservations were incorrectly reported as unused. 

  2. Range view: Fixed an issue that enabled administrators to see some ranges outside of their own organization *

  3. Rclone logs: Fixed an issue that produced Rclone logs that were not in proper JSON format. 

  4. Clone Sources tab size: Fixed an issue that would cause the Clone Sources tab to crash if the browser window was too small. 

  5. Formatting for imported SCPs: Fixed an issue that removed formatting when copying from module to module. 

  6. Clone source creation date: Fixed an issue that resulted in creator or creation date being updated when the name or description of a clone source was updated within Network Design.

  7. Reservation notification email links: Fixed an issue that caused broken links in reservation notification emails.

  8. Managed SCE page refreshes: Fixed an issue where "Info" text would disappear from a managed SCE upon page refresh.


Version 6.7

New Features and Enhancements

  1. Range status: In Network Design > Ranges, all users can now see the status of a virtual machine in the process of  shutting down or deletion, not just the user and session that triggered the action.


  1. Erroneous range statuses: Fixed issue in Network Design > Ranges where some range statuses showed as Not Deployed despite having active virtual machines. This erroneous status appeared when a user had access to an event, but did not have permissions to see the associated network specification. Now, ranges with active virtual machines show as Deployed.

  2. Expired range reservation notifications: Fixed issue where group expired range reservation notifications did not work as intended.

  3. Defender log export: Fixed an issue that prevented defender log export.

  4. SCP deletion message: Fixed an issue in the Content Authoring App where if an Admin tried to delete a structured content plan that was linked to a structured content event or had other dependencies, no error was displayed to inform the user that the delete failed. Now, an error message appears to inform the user that the delete failed and why.

  5. Deployment target delete: Fixed an issue where if a deployment target failed to delete, the user would receive a java script error message. Now, the user receives a descriptive error notification. 

  6. Clone source virtual machines: Fixed an issue in the Network Design App where clone sources included virtual machines that were not in the deployment that was cloned, but were in the associated network specification. Now, clone sources only include virtual machines from the deployment that was cloned to create it.

  7. User emulation list generation: Fixed an issue in the Network Design App where an administrator attempting to create two different Generated Users lists instead generated  two lists with the same users duplicated. Now, when an administrator generates multiple lists of users, the users are unique to each list.

  8. Rich text editor: Fixed a number of issues in the Slate rich text editor affecting code blocks and images.
