Snipe-IT v4.7.5 Released


This release fixes a bug in the LDAP settings where the LDAP password could be blanked out when saving your LDAP settings.

Additionally, this release renames the groups table to permission_groups to avoid reserved name conflicts with later versions of MySQL. This should only be relevant to folks who have set up custom/third-party scripts that directly interface with the database. API endpoints, etc remain unchanged.

IMPORTANT: This release requires PHP 7.1.3 or greater.


  • Fixed LDAP password blanking on save
  • Fixed #7164, #7145 – change table name to permission_groups
  • Reduce minimum group name length to 2 (from 3)
  • Small fixes for phpleague CSV reader v9


  • Improved error checking in locations importer
