Automate 2 version 20190501153509 Released!


We are delighted to announce the availability of version 20190501153509 of Chef Automate 2.

Upgrade Impact

ICYMI: If you are upgrading from a version prior to 20190410001346, please read our important announcement.


  • More Time(stamps): Scan Results Nodes list, viewable from the Compliance Reporting Profiles, now displays in descending order of end_time and shows when it was scanned in the Scan Results view.
  • CAPS LOCK ON: Case-insensitive search is available when using the Asset Store search functionality.
  • Hello, My Name Is: Names are now one of the available tags for filtering Azure-VM nodes when creating a scan job.
  • Customize This!: Any default configuration value for the Microsoft Active Directory (MSAD) integration now can be overridden without using the generic LDAP adapter as a workaround.
  • Improved Control and Handling: The compliance profiles for STIG RHEL 7 V2R1 have two additional controls (SV-86587r4 and SV-95719r1) implemented. These controls previously resulted in a "skipped" result.

Bug Fixes

  • Cleared Up: Sorting by control failures in the Compliance Reporting Nodes list view previously would cause a 400 issue.
  • Set Right: The overview page for skipped nodes in Compliance Reporting has more consistent statuses.
  • No Red Flags: The applications-service will now start when a feature flag is not enabled on the upstream events-service.
