Automate 2 version 20200123225613 Released!

We are delighted to announce the availability of version 20200123225613 of Chef Automate 2.

New Features


  • Quicker Than Ever: We improved the 3-dot menu at the end of table rows, so the displays load much faster now.
  • See The Difference: The user management display features consistency improvements.
  • The More, The Better: We added more information to the output of the chef-automate backup show <backup_id> command to support debugging.
  • On The Same Page: The modified profiles search endpoint uses one (1) for the first page now, instead of zero, for consistency with other APIs.

Bug Fixes

  • Mended: We repaired a broken --patch-config flag for backup restores. Under most cases, this flag was being ignored and would result in a restore having the exact configuration as the backup.

Beta Features

Identity and Access Management v2

  • Prepare for Glory: We increased the project limit from 6 to 300.
  • Squashed: Fixed bug associated with using the browser back button after navigating from the Teams page to the Users page in Settings.
  • Targeted: The project filter and project assignment dropdown now features the ability to search for specific projects!
  • One Click: It's now possible to clear all your project selections at once in the project filter.
