  • Update your projects in Access Management by selecting the Update Projects button that appears at the bottom of the page. A progress banner displays whenever an update is in progress.
  • Backups for Chef Habitat artifacts are now incremental. Only Chef Habitat artifacts that do not exist previously in the backup repository will be copied in full.
  • Chef Automate data backup includes Applications data.
  • Chef Automate Compliance backend supports Chef InSpec waivers.

Bug Fixes

  • We resolved bugs related to Chrome 80.0.3987.87 and modal windows in Chef Automate and in the Chef Automate API documentation.
  • We fixed a goroutine memory leak, which affected all services using the cereal-service library.
  • Chef Client Run reports with no entity_uuid field will now be rejected, which prevents bad report ingestion.
  • Failing profiles will be skipped and logged in an error message when migrating from Chef Automate 1 to Chef Automate 2, which allows the migration to complete instead of fail.
  • The Applications dashboard is now hidden if a user lacks the authorization for viewing.

How to Upgrade

By default Chef Automate 2 will automatically upgrade to this new version. If you have disabled automatic upgrades you can manually initiate an upgrade by running:
