(hash 43394f3b)

Bug fixes and small improvements

  • [IMP] Improved the WAPT Console: improve the refresh of hosts grid when a lot of hosts are selected (improved by a factor of around 5).

  • [FIX] Fixed the WAPT Server Database connections management: do not close the database on teardown as it should not occur, and seems to trigger some issue when triggering a lot of tasks on remote hosts (error “database is closed”).

  • [FIX] Fixed the WAPT Console: Do not “force” install when triggering the upgrade on remote hosts, to avoid reinstalling softwares when already up to date.

  • [IMP] use ldap authentication only if session and admin fail (avoid waiting for timeout when ldap is not available but one wants to login with plain admin user).

  • [FIX] wapt-get upload: encode user and password in http_upload_package to allow non ascii in admin password.

WAPT-1.8.1-6742 (2020-02-12)

(hash 80dbdbe7)

Major changes

  • [ADD] In the WAPT Console, added a page to show packages install status summary (merge) of all selected hosts, grouped by package, version, install status, with count of hosts;

Context menu allow to apply selectively the pending actions. On enterprise, one can apply safely the updates (only packages for which there is no running process on client side).

  • [IMP] Prevent users from saving a host package if targeted host(s) do not accept their personal certificate. (Checked on the WAPT Console when editing / mass updating host packages, and on the WAPT Server when uploding packages).

The personal certificate file .crt MUST contain at first the personal certificate, followed by the issuer CA certificates, so that WAPT can rebuild the certificate chain and check intersection with host’s trusted certificates.

Important note about SSL client side authentication

In the Nginx configuration, be sure to reset the headers X-Ssl-Authenticated and X-Ssl-Client-DN as the WAPT Server trusts these headers if the SSL cient side authentication is enabled in waptserver.ini.

If SSL client side authentication is setup these headers can be populated by proxy_set_header with result of ssl_verify_client as explained in ./wapt-security/security-configuration-certificate-authentication.html#enabling-client-side-certificate-authentication.

Fixes and detailed changelog

  • [FIX] Fixed security and updated waitress module to 1.4.3 (CVE-2020-5236).

  • [IMP] On the WAPT Server, <repository root>/wapt/ssl dir is moved automatically on winsetup / postconf to (per default) <repository root>/ssl, a /ssl location is added. This /ssl should be accessible from clients at the location specified by the WAPT Server parameter clients_signing_crl_url (in waptserver.ini).

  • [IMP] Improved logs readability. Log count of used database connections from pool on the WAPT Server to troubleshoot database connection issues. Log level can be specified by subcomponent with loglevel_waptcore, loglevel_waptserver,, loglevel_waptws, loglevel_waptdatabase defined in waptserver.ini;

  • [IMP] Reworked explicit database Open/close on the WAPT Server to not get a database connection from pool if not useful. It prevents exhaustion of database connections;

  • [IMP] Improved the WAPT Console: Allow update of host package only if user certificate is actually allowed on the host (based on last update of host status in database);

  • [ADD] Added in the WAPT Console / build of the WAPT Agent: added checkbox to specify to include or not non certificate authority certificates in build. The normal setup would be to uncheck this, to not deploy non CA certificates, on wapt root CA;

  • [IMP] Add explicit AllowUnauthenticatedRegistration task to the Windows waptserversetup.

  • [IMP] waptsetup: Remove explicit VCRedistNeedsInstall task. Use /VCRedistInstall = True / False if you need to force install or force not install vcredist VC_2008_SP1_MFC_SEC_UPD_REDIST_X86.

  • [FIX] wapt-get.exe: use wapt-get.ini for wapt-get scan-packages and wapt-get update-packages’ actions.

  • [FIX] wapt-get: authentication asked when checking if the WAPT Server is available (ping) and client ssl authentication is enabled.

  • [IMP] WAPT client: if client ssl authentication failed with http error 400, retry without ssl authentication to be able to ask for new certificate signing.

  • [FIX] Fixed the WAPT Server register behavior: revert over rev 6641: sign host certificate if an authenticated user is provided or data is signed with a key which can be verified by existing certificate in database for this host uuid.

  • [IMP] Improved the WAPT Server register behavior: when receiving 401 from the WAPT Server when registering, retry registering without ssl authentication.

  • [IMP] wapt client: be sure to have proper host private key saved on disk when receiving signed certificate from the WAPT Server.

In Package control file, the description_fr, description_en, description_de, description_pl, description_es can be used to give description in respective french, english, german, polish languages.

If not set, the base description is used.

WAPT Console

WAPT- rc1 (2018-02-27)

Global architecture

There is a significant internal change on how python libraries are managed inside WAPT. This has implications on the way python scripts are launched. This change is only relevant for peoples launching WAPT processes manually.

We have removed the (not clean) sys.path manipulations inside wapt python scripts sources. The consequence is that all python scripts MUST be run with prior setting PYTHONHOME and PYTHONPATH pointing to WAPT home directory (/opt/wapt on Linux).

Failing to do so results in scripts claiming that libraries are missing.

On the WAPT Server running on Linux, libs are now in the default /opt/wapt/lib/python2.7 location instead of using non standard former one.

  • [IMP] WAPT has its own full python environment for libraries, even when debugging. Before, system wide python27 installation was needed for PyScripter to run.

Now, PyScripter can be started with a special batch file waptpyscripter.bat which sets the environment variables for python (PYTHONHOME and PYTHONPATH) and run PyScripter with python dll path set to wapt own copy.

  • [NEW] Command line scripts with proper environment:

  • wapt-serverpostconf on Linux server to start the WAPT Server

  • wapt-scanpackages

  • wapt-signpackages

  • [NEW] debugging commandline tools which setup python environment properly before running the python before running the python script:

  • to debug the WAPT service, launch in cmd as admin: runwaptservice.bat;

  • to debug the WAPT Server, launch in cmd: runwaptservice.bat or under linux:;

  • to launch PyScripter without the need for local system wide python27 install, run waptpyscripter.bat;

WAPT client

  • [IMP] Add local wapt-get.ini settings packages_whitelist and packages_blacklist to restrict accepted packages from repository based on their package’s name;

  • [IMP] More detailed reporting off host’s repositories configuration (now includes dnsdomain, proxy, and list of trusted certificates);

  • [FIX] fixed display in the Windows task bar of the login window (to allow in particular the autofill of the password by password managers); the WAPT Agent failing to compile if keys/ certificates already exist but the certificate had been removed from C:\wapt\ssl;

  • [NEW] Handle AD organizational unit packages (Enterprise edition)

  • [IMP] Fallback to basic authentication when a host is registering on the WAPT Server if kerberos is enabled but authentication fails.

  • [IMP] Improved wapt-get.exe, allow to designate configuration wapt-get.ini file with –config option with base name of user waptconsole.ini file (without ini extension) instead of full path. Handy when switching between several configurations. Same behavior as for the WAPT Console. Example:

wapt-get -c site3 build-upload c:\\waptdev\\test-7zip-wapt;

  • [FIX] Be sure to not loop for ever in websockets retry loop if something is wrong in the WAPT Server or websocket configuration.

  • [FIX] Update PyScripter project template to use project directory as parameter for debug actions, and use relative paths for filenames.

  • [FIX] incorrect package version comparison. Return True when comparing 1.2-1 to 1.2.1-3 (note: this is not homogeneous with the Version() class behavior. todo: merge both);

  • [FIX] waptsetup: register and update MUST be launched with elevated privileges. So remove runasoriginaluser option.

  • [NEW] Introduced attributes target_os and impacted_process for package’s control file. They are not yet taken in account.

  • [NEW] Introduced method to handle X509 client certificates authentication for repositories and the WAPT Server (specially for public WAPT Servers);

  • [NEW] Introduced classes to generate X509 CRL;


  • [UPD] setuphelpers.removetree: Try to remove readonly flag when remove_tree reaches an Access Denied error;

  • [FIX] Fixed unicode handling in shell startup shortcuts;

  • [IMP] waptutils.wget can check sha1 or sh256 hashes in addition to md5, and can cache and resume partial downloads;

WAPT Console

  • [NEW] action in the WAPT Console to plan in near future a restart of the WAPT service on selected hosts;

  • [IMP] mass host update/upgrade in the WAPT Console actions are now launched in single shot instead of one host at a time;

  • [NEW] allow to force a host_dn in wapt-get.ini when host is not in a domain (Enterprise only);

  • [NEW] SetupHelpers: added timeout parameter for setuphelpers.service_start, setuphelpers.service_stop and setuphelpers.service_restart;

  • [IMP] group filter list box is now editable, and one can type a partial group match and press enter to filter on all matching groups. Separator is comma (,). Handle * at the end of search to find all occurrences even if one group matches exactly;

WAPT Server

  • [ADD] bat script migrate-hosts.bat to set environment for;

  • [ADD] script to trigger action on pre 1.5 hosts with reachable 8088 port from 1.5 WAPT Server;

  • [FIX] registration_auth_user reset to None when reusing host certificate for re-register;

  • [IMP] removed unnecessary dependencies krb5-user, msktutil, python-psutil for the WAPT Server package;

  • [IMP] increase client_max_body_size for http post on nginx for large update/ upgrade trigger:

    • fix signature_clockskew parameter not taken in account in the WAPT Server configuration;

    • unified loggers for the WAPT Server;

    • have the WAPT Server ask WAPT clients to update status using websockets if websocket connection is up but database is not aware of given SID (case where the WAPT Server is restarted but nginx is kept up, and restart of the WAPT Server service is fast enough to not trigger a reconnection of the clients);

  • [FIX] disable proxy for migrate-hosts;

Known issues

  • WAPT service: if a system account level http proxy is defined in registry on the windows host, websocket client library tries to use it and fails to connect to the WAPT Server. Workaround: make an exception for the WAPT Server;

  • In the WAPT Console: if a http proxy is defined in waptconsole.ini, section [global], key http_proxy, it is used by the WAPT Console even if setting use_proxy_for_xxx is False Workround: set http_proxy to an empty string in waptconsole.ini;

  • when using a not self-signed personal certificate, depending of th issuer, the certificate file <private_dir>mine_cert.crt can contain the full chain (own certificate, intermediate CA, and root CA). When the WAPT Console asks if the certificate should be put in authorized client certificate directory (<wapt-dir>ssl), the full crt file is copied as this. This means that all certificates in crt file are authorized, and not only the personal one. This is perhaps not desired;

    Workaround: check if the personal pem encoded crt file contains the full certificates chain. If this is the case, copy in <wapt-dir>ssl only the parts of the PEM file matching the certificates you want to trust;

  • SNI is not properly handled by the WAPT Console code, leading to incorrect error about certificate validation on WAPT https Server with virtual hosts;

  • Certificates CSR updates (periodical signature, …) must be managed manually using tools like easy-rsa. Only CSR accessible by a URL are supported;

  • proxies are not supported on the WAPT Server, so CRL can not be updated properly (as far as Distribution Point is defined in certificates) if the WAPT Server has no direct http access to the distribution points;

  • https certificates are verified on the clients using the bundle defined by the verify_cert ini settings. If this setting is simply True, the bundle supplied with python libraries is used to check issuers. This bundle is not updated unless WAPT is upgraded, so new issuers or no more trusted issuers are taken in account only at this point. So it is better to deploy your own CA bundle along with wapt and define the verify_cert path.

  • for rc1, on the linux server, there are broken symbolic links in lib/python2.7 folder. Next RC does not exhibit this problem;

WAPT- (2018-01-09)

  • [NEW] Historize in wapt_localstatus PostgreSQL table the dependencies and conflicts of installed packages (to provide an easy way to warn when conflicting package will be installed or should be removed);

  • pas de release officielle;

  • [NEW] migration sur la base PostgreSQL à la place de MongoDB;

WAPT-1.3.13 (2017-07-25)

Security fix

  • régression: Package files content check was skipped if signature of manifest and Packages index file checksum was ok. This regression affects all 1.3.12 releases, but not WAPT <= 1.3.9 and >= upcoming 1.5. In order to exploit this bug, one would need to tamper the Packages files either through a MITM (if you do not have valid https certificate check) or a root access on the WAPT Server.

Other changes

  • compatibility with packages signed with upcoming WAPT 1.5. With WAPT 1.5, package are signed with sha256 hashes. An option allows to sign them with sha1 too so that they can be used with WAPT 1.3 without signing them again.

  • new package certificate for Tranquil IT packages. previous certificate for package on has expired. all packages on has been signed again with new key / certificate with both sha1 and sha256 hashes, and WAPT 1.5 signature style (control data is signed as well as files)

  • fix for local GPO add_shutdown_script() function (thanks jf-guillou!)

WAPT (2016-11-18)


  • [SEC] Fix inheritance of rights on wapt root folder for Windows 10 during setup when installed in C:\wapt. On Windows 10, cacls.exe does not work and does not remove “Authenticated Users” from C:\wapt. cacls.exe has been replaced by icacls.exe:

  • on pre-wapt 1.3.7 systems, you can fix this by running the following command, or upgrade to wapt 1.3.8 (you may check icacls.exe c:\wapt /inheritance:r)

  • This can be achieved with a GPO, or a wapt package

  • [IMP] in next versions of WAPT, the default install path of wapt will be changed from root folder C:\wapt to a more standard C:\Program Files (x86)\wapt.

  • [IMP] By default, waptsetup.exe / waptsetup-tis.exe do not distribute certificates to avoid to deploy directly packages from Tranquil IT. waptagent.exe by default distributes the certificates that are installed on the mangement desktop creating the waptagent.

Core changes

  • [IMP] The database structure has changed between 1.3.8 and to include additional attributes from packages: signer, signer_fingerprint, locale, and maturity. signer and signer_fingerprint are populated when signing the package to identify the origin. This means local WAPT database is upgraded when first starting WAPT and this is not backward compatible;

  • [IMP] Installers have a limited set of options, the most common use of WAPT is privileged;

  • [ADD] 3 new parameters for the waptexit policy behavior: hiberboot_enabled, max_gpo_script_wait, pre_shutdown_timeout. These parameters are not set by default and should be added to wapt-get.ini [global] section if needed;

  • [IMP] Use user’s waptconsole.ini configuration file instead of wapt-get.ini for the commands targeted to package development (sources, make-template, make-host-template, make-group-template, build-package, sign-package, build-upload, duplicate, edit, edit-host, upload-package, update-packages. This avoids the need to write these parameters in wapt-get.ini on the development workstation. These parameters are not shared across multiple users on same host. One use case is to allow multiple profiles (key, upload location) depending on the maturity of package (development, test, production…);


  • [ADD] helper functions setuphelpers.dir_is_empty, setuphelpers.file_is_locked, setuphelpers.service_restart and setuphelpers.WindowsVersions class

  • [ADD] read the docs theme for sphinx SetupHelpers API documentation. WIP

  • [ADD] _all_ list to avoid importing unecessary names in modules. Now only functions defined in SetupHelpers are available when importing SetupHelpers. This can break some WAPT packages if names were indirectly imported through SetupHelpers module.

  • [ADD] need_install, install_exe_if_needed, install_msi_if_needed functions to SetupHelpers.

  • [ADD] local_desktops function

  • [FIX] version class instances accept to be compared to str

WAPT-1.1.1 (2015-02-26)

WAPT Console

  • [IMP] Improved the loading of the main grid has been optimized; only configured columns are displayed;

  • [IMP] Improved the WAPT Server: detects the hosts whose waptservice is listening. Their Reachable status is shown with a green / grey indicator;

  • [IMP] Improved the WAPT package to upgrade WAPT on hosts (???-waptupgrade.wapt) is generated by the WAPT Console at the same time as the WAPT agent installer (waptagent.exe), the two files are then uploaded on the WAPT Server;

  • [ADD] Added the package dependencies of each host are displayed in the grid. This allows to see what hosts have no package;

  • [ADD] Added possibility to trigger available package upgrades on hosts that are listening from the WAPT Console. In that case, the host sends its status to the WAPT Server after the upgrade;

  • [ADD] Added possibility to filter hosts in the WAPT Console according to their upgrade status or whether they are “reachable” or not,

  • [ADD] When packages are flagged for install but are not yet installed on a host, they appear with a blue “+” indicator. It is then possible to force the immediate install of the package with a right-click;

The WAPT service

  • [ADD] cleaning of the cache on the hosts after each successful upgrade;

The WAPT Server

  • [ADD] the versions of the WAPT agent, WAPT Server are shown in the main web page of the WAPT Server (with a red indicator if there is a problem);


  • [ADD] Added functions to SetupHelpers to manage shortcuts:

    • setuphelpers.remove_desktop_shortcut;

    • setuphelpers.remove_user_desktop_shortcut;

    • setuphelpers.remove_programs_menu_shortcut;

    • setuphelpers.remove_user_programs_menu_shortcut.


  • [IMP] verification of used ports during the post-configuration of WAPT Server on a Windows host;


  • [IMP] the waptserver no longer listen on 8080 port by default.

The Apache frontal web server listens in HTTP and HTTPS and relays action calls to the python waptservice that only listens locally.

It is therefore necessary to update wapt-get.ini files on WAPT agents and to replace wapt_server = http://srvwapt.mydomain.lan:8080 with wapt_server = https://srvwapt.mydomain.lan

If you can not make that change to your WAPT agents, it is possible to return to the previous behavior.

On Debian, edit the file /opt/wapt/waptserver/waptserver.ini, and in the [uwsgi] section, put:

http-socket =

On Windows, edit C:\waptwaptserver\waptserver.ini and replace:

server = Rocket((‘’, port), ‘wsgi’, {“wsgi_app”:app})


server = Rocket((‘’, port), ‘wsgi’, {“wsgi_app”:app})

The repository may stay in HTTP on port 80.

The calls to the WAPT Server are authenticated, but it is advized to restrict access to authorized sub-networks with a firewall.

  • [IMP] json calls to the webservice of the WAPT Server are now standardized;

  • [IMP] when launching update / upgrade / remove / forget / tasks_status actions from the WAPT Console, the IP address of the host is no longer sent, but instead its UUID, and it is the WAPT Server that finds the IP address and the port to use; et c’est le serveur wapt qui s’occupe de déterminer quelle IP / port utiliser;

  • [ADD] verification in the WAPT Console that the version of the WAPT Server is sufficient;

  • [ADD] the timeout to connect to WAPT agents and read the data are configurable in waptserver.ini;

WAPT-1.0 (2015-01-31)

  • [ADD] first public version of WAPT
