Releases/4.8.6

Release date Released 2020-03-28

The FreeIPA team would like to announce FreeIPA 4.8.6 release!

It can be downloaded from http://www.freeipa.org/page/Downloads. Builds for Fedora distributions will be available from the official repository soon.

Highlights in 4.8.6

  • 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.

  • 8241: Build fails on Fedora 30
SELinux rules for ipa-custodia were merged into FreeIPA SELinux policy. The policy relied on an SELinux interface that is not available in Fedora 30. The logic was changed to allow better portability across SELinux versions.

Enhancements

Known Issues

  • 8240: KRA install fails if all KRA members are Hidden Replicas
If the first KRA instance is installed on a hidden replica, more KRA instances cannot be added to the cluster. As a workaround, temporarily make the the hidden replica with the KRA role visible before adding more KRA instances. The previously-hidden replica can be hidden again as soon as ipa-kra-install is complete.
