Chef InSpec 4.23.4 Released!

Hello InSpec friends!
We are delighted to announce the availability of version 4.23.4 of Chef InSpec. Changes include:

New Features

  • Discretion: A mechanism marks inputs as sensitive: true and replaces their values with "***". (#5054)
  • Cut the Chatter: Use the --no-diff CLI option to suppress diff output for textual tests. (#5054)
  • Sorted: Control the order of controls in output, but not execution order, with the --sort_results_by=none|control|file|random CLI option. (#5054)
  • Test Better: Disable caching of inputs with a cache_inputs: true setting. (#5211)


  • Port Access: postgres_session allows for custom ports in the postgres_session('username', 'password', 'host', 'port') command. (#5185)

Bug Fixes

  • Unabridged: Addressed a ps output truncation edge case related to undefined output widths for some Linux systems. (#5232)
