v1.7.0

Release Date: April 30, 2019

Features included in this release:

  • PCC permits authentication and authorization using your enterprise single sign-on system, such as LDAP.
  • PCC requires TLS encryption for using gfsh and Pulse. Follow the instructions in Preparing for TLS to set up TLS encryption.
  • WARNING: Follow the procedure detailed in Special Upgrade Procedure for Dev and Small Footprint Plans when upgrading from PCC v1.6.x for plans that colocate system components on a single VM. This applies to the dev plan and to the small footprint plan.

  • The new ReplyWaitsInProgress metric allows operators to identify unhealthy cluster members or network connectivity issues.
  • If a ClamAV or File Integrity Monitor is detected, available memory for GemFire servers is reduced to allow enough memory for these PCF add-ons. This prevents a failure during PCC service instance creation.
  • The small footprint plan may be scaled up and down, and metrics are available.
  • Simplified TLS setup for Spring Boot applications, as detailed in Developing an App Under TLS.
  • Metrics can be generated for a single PCC service instance, and are available with log-cache.
  • PCC now ships with JDK 1.8_192.
  • PCC now runs Pivotal GemFire 9.7.1.
  • PCC now supports Pivotal Application Service (PAS) 2.5.

Known Issues

  • Current versions of the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (CLI) tool have a known bug that omits the documentation URL when using the cf service command.
