Release Date: July 6, 2017

  • Uses Golang v1.8.3 in the BOSH Release

Fixed Issues

  • Service backup now creates a new S3 bucket even if endpoint_url is an empty string.
  • Document service-alerts are in the BOSH release spec.
  • When co-locating syslog-migration-release or syslog-release there would be duplicate log entries, as service-backup was also writing it’s logs to syslog. Now ODB only writes logs to /var/vcap/sys/log, and anything syslog related is handled by syslog-release or syslog-migration-release.
