Navigate to:

New maintenance releases for Kapacitor and Kapacitor Enterprise are available now.

This maintenance release for Kapacitor includes the following updates:

  • Security Enhancements
    • Add ability to skip SSL verification with an alert post node.
    • Additional TLS configuration options are also available allowing for a more precise configuration related to TLS version and specification of allowed ciphers.
  • Use default transport consistently.
  • Fix deadlock in barrier node when delete is used.
  • Make RPM create files with correct ownership on install.
  • Delete group stats when a group is deleted.
  • Avoid extra allocation when building GroupID.

In addition to those items, Kapacitor Enterprise includes the following updates:

  • Breaking Change - Topic Handler Changes
    • All topic owners must be available when a user attempts to create, update, or delete a topic handler. A "liveness" probe is performed on only the nodes that own the topic. An error is generated if the owner is unavailable or unresponsive.
  • Support insecure TLS and authentication when connecting to InfluxDB Enterprise meta node
  • Fix config start error from extra 'load' section
  • Update build script to correctly change file ownership in order to make RPM verification pass on RedHat-based systems
