Automate 2 version 20191001203421 Released!

We are delighted to announce the availability of version 20191001203421 of Chef Automate 2.

New Features

  • Copy & Paste: Compliance Reports now saves the selected filters in the URL, which means a copied URL from Compliance Reports will reflect your applied filters!
  • Time Scale: You can now use the trend graph in Compliance Reports to select a date for the calendar filter. Simply find the preferred date on the trend graph, click, and watch the page update with the new date filter!
  • Try It Out: The Compliance Reports bubble graphs are now interactive! Click on one of the bubbles to apply the desired filter to the report.
  • Sorted: You can now filter by control tag in the Compliance Reports UI! We appreciate your patience with this new functionality as we continue to squash some small bugs.
  • New Entry: A new API endpoint is available for listing controls in compliance reporting with a2-url/compliance/reporting/controls
  • More!: Check out our new compliance profiles:
    • CIS Apple MacOS 10.13 v1.0.0
    • STIG Windows Server 2019 V1R1


  • Consistency: Entering an invalid URL will now redirect users to the Event Feed page.
  • New, Yet the Same: The Compliance Reports search bar has been updated to use "Chef Organization" and "Chef Tag" instead of "Organization" and "Chef Tags," which is consistent with the Client Runs search bar.
  • Are You Sure?: When deleting a node credential, a confirmation dialog box will appear before executing the delete query.
  • We're sure: Release manifest signatures are verified during installation and upgrade.

Bug Fixes

  • Export Options: Chef tags are now exported in the Client Runs JSON export!

  • Squashed: Resolved a bug where stale user membership data would load briefly on the Team Details page.
  • Uncovered: Long profile titles and descriptions are no longer partially covered by action buttons.
  • Time Travel: Fixed an issue in Compliance Reports where clicking on a day in the previous or next month on the calendar widget incorrectly selected that day in the currently selected month.
  • Picture Perfect: Fixed a bug in restoring an Elasticsearch snapshot with many indices.
  • Stay With the Plan: Fixed a bug in executing data lifecycle scheduled jobs.
