Welcome to our first release of 2021! We have quite a few changes under the hood that will eventually require action to be taken by our users.

The ClusterControl web application is now able to use the improved and more secure RPC v2 API which has been used by our s9s command-line tool for quite some time. One of the key changes is that it allows us to provide a better User Management system to manage users, teams and access control.

This, unfortunately, requires a few steps to be taken on your part in order to switch to the new system:

  • Existing ClusterControl users need to be re-created – Create a new ‘admin’ user in the new system with the ‘create admin user’ wizard, then login with that user and then create any remaining users and teams again.
  • An existing LDAP server configuration needs to be re-created – Logon with your new ‘admin’ user and then create the LDAP configuration again. Please check for instructions here.

Beginning with this release our new features and UX/UI improvements are only accessible if you are logged in with the new User Management system!

We are planning to completely phase out the old User Management system from June 2022 until then both versions will be concurrently supported by the web application. Critical bug fixes and other minor cosmetic fixes are going to be maintained with both versions of the User Management systems until the old system is phased out.

Feature Details

  • New User and LDAP Management – A new system to manage users via the ClusterControl controller with improved security, central user database, access control and LDAP support.
