Enriched user experience  

Two standout Web Console features highlighted in our latest major release blog 7.0 are now more prominently displayed in this minor release: 

1. Discovered resources and their state.

Authentication and authorization improvements 

We've introduced built-in user management, enabling you to establish authentication directly without relying on an external identity provider for the OIDC protocol. While this feature provides a simpler set up, we highly recommend using OIDC for seamless Single Sign-On (SSO) integration. Check out our documentation for a detailed guide on configuring this setup. We have introduced an initial user set up to ensure the Inmanta Service Orchestrator ships without a default password.  Additionally, the backend is now able to evaluate authorization claims for more fine-grained authorization.  

Model expressiveness 

The addition of arithmetic operator support in the Inmanta DSL empowers users to write more powerful, expressive, and efficient service models, ultimately leading to improved productivity.

peering_id = 10 

vlan_id = 1000*switch + 800 + peering_id
