Release Announcement: Kapacitor 1.5.7

Navigate to:

A new maintenance release for Kapacitor is available now.

Important Highlight

We’ve recently updated the package validation mechanics to use SHA-256. Versions prior to 1.5.5 used MD5 which had some known security vulnerabilities.   

This release for Kapacitor includes the following fixes and improvements:

  • Event Handlers
    • ServiceNow provides IT service management software with a comprehensive managed workflow that supports features such as real-time communication, collaboration, and resource sharing. Kapacitor can now be configured to send alert messages to ServiceNow. If you are using Chronograf, we haven't exposed the ability to configure ServiceNow; if this is something you are interested in, reach out to us through the channels below. 
    • For the OpsGenie Event Handler, we received a community contribution to Add the .recoveryaction() method to support overriding the OpsGenieV2 alert recovery action in a TICKscript. Thanks to @zabullet!
  • Templates
    • Added support for templating URLs in the httpPost node and alert node.
    • Added missing .Details to the alert template.

The binaries for the latest open source release can be found on our downloads page.

If you find issues or have questions, please join our InfluxDB Community Slack, post them in our Kapacitor Github Repo or our Community Site and we will take a look.
