Release notes for Armory Continuous Deployment v2.19.8

04/21/20 Release Notes

Note: If you’re experiencing production issues after upgrading Spinnaker, rollback to a previous working version and please report issues to http://go.armory.io/support.

Breaking Changes

Required Halyard version

Armory 2.19.x requires Armory-extended Halyard 1.8.3 or later.

HTTP sessions for Gate

Armory 2.19.x includes an upgrade to the Spring Boot dependency. This requires you to flush all the Gate sessions for your Spinnaker deployment. For more information, see Flushing Gate Sessions.

Scheduled Removal of Kubernetes V1 Provider

The Kubernetes V1 provider will be removed in Spinnaker 1.21. Please see the RFC for more details.

Breaking change: Kubernetes accounts with an unspecified providerVersion will now default to V2. Update your Halconfig to specify providerVersion: v1 for any Kubernetes accounts you are currently using with the V1 provider.

Known Issues

Dynamic Accounts for Kubernetes

Fixed in: 2.21

There is an issue with Dynamic Accounts for Kubernetes where the following issues occur:

  • Agents get removed but still run on schedule.
  • Force cache refresh times out.
  • If you have the clean up agent setup, your data randomly disappears and reappears.

These issues do not occur immediately, and you may even see modified accounts appear.

Pipelines as code

Webhook secret validation is broken in this version. Please skip this version if you use this feature.

Highlighted Updates

This update contians improvements and fixes to the Plugins framework:

  • Support for Plugin deployment using Armory-extended Halyard or the Spinnaker Operator. Consult the open source Plugin docs for Halyard usage or the Plugins Operator Reference for a manifest example.
  • Updates to how Deck is built. Previously, Deck’s builds were non-deterministic, causing issues with loading plugins into the UI. Deck’s builds are now deterministic and support UI plugins.
