In August we’ve been fixing bugs and adding new team management capabilities in our Fairwinds Insights latest releases. The updates in 5.2.0, 5.3.0, and 5.4.0 include new updates related to Kubernetes security, policy, and governance. Our recent updates to team management helps you limit access to sensitive information and get the right information to the right people. Learn more about the new features and additional functionality in our releases.
We fixed a bug that used “last seen” instead of “first seen” to count fixed action items. As a result, fixed action item numbers are now more accurate.
We fixed a bug in our Slack interface that didn’t display the previous channel selected when searching for a different Slack channel.
We fixed a bug where you could not delete repositories, so users now have that capability.
Fixed SAML Errors
We resolved an issue that occurred when enabling our recently introduced Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) capabilities. Fairwinds Insights supports single sign-on via a SAML identity provider.
We launched a new interface and API for managing teams within your organization. Within an organization, you can create multiple teams, each of which has access to a particular set of clusters, namespaces, and repositories. This allows you to assign members of those teams to a specific role, which limits the actions they can take on those objects. This new team management capability is a great way to limit access to sensitive information and get the right information in front of the right people. Read about team management.
There’s a new version of the Insights Agent available! It includes some minor improvements, including better support for Kubernetes 1.21 and the latest updates to our plugin.
Our team made some changes to settings to improve your experience using Fairwinds Insights. First, we introduced User Settings, where you can now make updates to any personal user information or passwords. We also consolidated organization and cluster settings into one place to make it easier to manage.
There was a bug that wouldn’t allow users to create tickets on the vulnerability page, which is now resolved.
We fixed a bug that resulted in a user being unable to open up the Cost Settings page. We now display a toast when people who are not administrators attempt to navigate to that section of the application.
It’s now easier to regenerate, provision, and manage tokens. To make any future token changes you can access this capability under Tokens within Settings in Fairwinds Insights.
Previously, duplicate reports were displayed on the report history page. This bug is now resolved.
The digest emails and Slack notifications are now updated to include warnings when charts are out-of-date.
