Release date Released 2020-03-28

The FreeIPA team would like to announce FreeIPA 4.7.5 release!

FreeIPA 4.7.5 is the final release in 4.7 series. No new releases will be provided for FreeIPA 4.7 as there are no distributors using the series anymore.

Two long term support release series are available:

  • FreeIPA 4.6
  • FreeIPA 4.8

Source code for the release can be downloaded from http://www.freeipa.org/page/Downloads.

Highlights in 4.7.5

  • 5662: ID Views: do not allow custom Views for the masters
Custom ID views cannot be applied to IPA masters. A check was added to both IPA CLI and Web UI to prevent applying custom ID views to avoid confusion and unintended side-effects.

  • 7181: ipa-replica-prepare fails for 2nd replica when passwordHistory is enabled
FreeIPA password policy plugin in 389-ds was extended to exempt non-Kerberos LDAP objects from checking Kerberos policy during password changes by the Directory Manager or a password synchronization manager. This issue affected, among others, an integrated CA administrator account during deployment of more than one replica in some cases.

  • 8233: 4.8.5 master Installation error
On Debian and ALT Linux setup of AJP connector did restart Apache instance before it was configured. The restart wasn't actually needed and thus was removed.

  • 8236: Enforce a check to prevent adding objects from IPA as external members of external groups
Command 'ipa group-add-member' allowed to specify any user or group for '--external' option. A stricter check is added to verify that a group or user to be added as an external member does not come from IPA domain.

  • 8239: Actualize Bootstrap version
Bootstrap Javascript framework used by FreeIPA web UI was updated to version 3.4.1.
