Bug Fixes

  • Across the World: The date picker in Compliance Reports no longer switches to the day before the selected date for users in Australia and parts of Asia. (#4030)
  • Unlocked: Fixes to Chef Habitat Builder and backup-gateway address issues caused by an MinIO upgrade, where configuration became encrypted with an ephemeral key. (#4061)(#4077)
  • Better: Experience improved performance for control and control tag suggestions in the Reports search bar. (4134)
  • New Standard: The default maximum request size for the Chef Infra Server is now 4MB to minimize the chances of dropping large reports. This change only affects new installs. You can patch your configuration manually to get the same effect if seeing dropped reports when running an earlier version of the Chef Automate-deployed Chef Infra Server. (#4069)
