OCNG 2.6 Server Extension Fields not populating

I was able to install the security plugin from https://github.com/PluginsOCSInventory-NG/security/ for OCSNG 2.6 and it shows up under software. However, my clients are unable to send the security.vbs data to the server. There are no errors in the agent and server logs. The clients are able to send all information but the extension data.

It is located under /usr/share/ocsinventory-reports/ocsreports/extensions/security/APACHE/map.pm . Should I move it to another location? Thanks

I have same problem. In my case, server 2.5 upgraded 2.6 nightly 2/2/2020. I solved the problem, but i don't know excatly how

1/ i upgraded server with 2.6 nightly 8/2/2020

2/ before last upgrade, deleted plugins directly on the web interfaces. deleted some old files

  in /usr/share/ocsinventory-reports/ocsreports/extensions

/etc/ocsinventory-server/plugins (old v2.5)

/etc/ocsinventory-server/perl/Apache/Ocsinventory/Plugins (old v2.5)

3/ install correctly plugins :

  • download plugins directly on github, unzip files into /usr/share/ocsinventory-reports/ocsreports/extensions
  • restart apache
  • on server interface > plugins > install plugins + disconnect web interface

    cd /usr/share/ocsinventory-reports/ocsreports/tools && sudo python3 install_plugin.py and install plugins

hope help.


PS : Sorry for my very bad english and format text (copy/paste from word ^^)
