Automate 2 version 20190207004055 Released!


We are delighted to announce the availability of version 20190207004055 of Chef Automate 2.

New Features

  • Compliance Update: You'll find a new profile for CIS Amazon Linux 2 v1.0.0 in the Compliance Store.


  • Try It Out: Switch between IAM v1 and IAM v2 beta without changing the automate-gateway setting called auth_middleware. Even if you do set it, Automate ignores it. See the IAM v2 beta guide for details regarding IAM v2.
  • How Many?: See the number of deprecations on any node in the deprecations column on the Client Runs page. Turn this feature on by selecting it in the column settings.
  • My One And Only: Selecting a status in the scan job form highlights that--and only that--status.
  • When One is Enough: Views with only one page won't show pagination.
  • Uniform Appearance: Made the look and feel the same for the Notifications, Node Integrations, Node Credentials, Node Lifecycle, and Event Feed pages.
  • Keep It Distinctive: Improved error messaging and user experience when trying to create an API Token with the same ID as another API Token.
  • New and Improved: The preview compliance profiles for Redhat7 and Windows Server 2016 STIGs have a number of new rules implemented, as well as a number of corrections to the test logic of existing rules.
