We are delighted to announce the availability of version 20190131011635 of Chef Automate 2.
- New Name, Same Awesome: The Admin page has been renamed to Settings.
- Where's Waldo?: Notifications, Node Credentials, and Node Integrations can all now be found in the newly named Settings page.
- Moved Around: General Settings is now called Node Lifecycle, and located under the newly named Settings page.
- Improved Compliance: The STIG RedHat 7 preview compliance profile includes:
- SV-86555r2_rule (Existing passwords are restricted to a 60-day maximum lifetime.)
- SV-86619r2_rule (Default permissions for authenticated users ensure the user can only read and modify their own files.)
- SV-86627r2_rule (Group Identifiers (GIDs) referenced in /etc/passwd are defined in the /etc/group.)
- SV-86747r4_rule (Audit all uses of the creat syscall.)
- SV-86749r4_rule (Audit all uses of the open syscall.)
- SV-86751r4_rule (Audit all uses of the openat syscall.)
- SV-86753r4_rule (Audit all uses of the open_by_handle_at syscall.)
- SV-86755r4_rule (Audit all uses of the truncate syscall.)
- SV-86757r4_rule (Audit all uses of the ftruncate syscall.)
- SV-86795r6_rule (Audit all uses of the mount command and syscall.)
- SV-86877r3_rule (SSH daemon must only use MACs employing FIPS 140-2 approved cryptographic hash algorithms.)
- SV-86943r2_rule (System must not forward IPv6 source-routed packets.)
- Not the Silent Deep:
chef-automate backup deletecommand no longer silently fails to delete backups.
- Clear-cutting: Internal request logs were being written to disk without log rotation. No more! Our fix cleans up any instances of these logs that have been left around.
- The Client-run Export now has:
- Corrected behavior of Total Resource Count to provide correct values.
- Removed fields that should not be associated with a node.
- Clear Away: Node credential validation used to wrongly display an error, but we worked it out.
- Resolved: A Compliance report export error when exporting larger reports is now fixed.
- Can't Click That: Disabled buttons no longer act as clickable on mouse-over.
