Automate 2 version 20200416222158 Released!

We are delighted to announce the availability of version 20200416222158 of Chef Automate 2.

New Features

  • Template for Awesome: Chef Automate includes 2 custom IAM roles and 2 custom IAM policies for compliance-only access with its standard Chef-managed policies and roles.


  • Stand and Deliver: The Clear Selection button in the Project filter clears only the selections made instead of clearing and applying the lack of Project selection.

Bug Fixes

  • Roster: The accurate list of remaining users on a team displays after removing a user.
  • As It Should: The loading screen disappears as expected if you navigate away from Compliance Profiles before the page finishes loading.
  • Moving Made Easy: Custom Identity and Access Management (IAM) v1 policies with a single-term resource, such as cfgmgmt, correctly migrate to IAM v2.
  • OK Backup: The Chef Automate-deployed Chef Infra Server's /universe and /version endpoints handle correctly.
  • Toggle On: The active/inactive status of a token toggles successfully in the browser.
  • Act Locally: The Elasticsearch gateway is now only accessible on localhost.
