Automate 2 version 20191030224959 Released!

We are delighted to announce the availability of version 20191030224959 of Chef Automate 2.

New Features

  • Resourceful: IAM v2 Beta now includes resource-scoped access! We added resource-scoped access to the role-based access already present in Beta. Resource-scoped access allows you to create projects. When combined with policies, these projects refine your permissions around API Tokens, Teams, Roles, Policies, and ingested client run nodes and compliance nodes. Users with access to multiple projects can filter their view directly in the top navigation. Check out the updated IAM v2 user guide to learn more about our new features.


  • Not Nothing: Within the API, you can now filter for an empty control tag value by requesting values with an empty string. This improvement will be expanded to the user interface (UI) in the near future.

Bug Fixes

  • Cited Sources: References on controls are now being read in correctly in Elasticsearch and are included on the full compliance report. References should be objects with a "ref" key/value, and a "uri" or "url" key/value. Anything not adhering to these standards will be ignored.
  • Time Travel: We resolved an issue on the Client Runs node history where all runs were listed as "a few seconds ago". This field represents the duration of the run, which now has been updated for clarity.
