  • To upgrade to CloudCenter 4.10.0.1, see Upgrade Overview.

  • If you are upgrading your environment to use tagless governance, you must use the latest CloudCenter 4.10.0.1 ccm-response.xml file to upgrade to CloudCenter 4.10.0.1. See Migrate to Tagless Governance for additional context.

Upgrade Path

The recommended upgrade path if you are using CloudCenter 4.10.0.1 is to upgrade to CloudCenter 4.10.0 or later releases.

Architecture

The Java agent, available in earlier CloudCenter releases, is no longer used in CloudCenter 4.10.0 and later releases. Effectively, CloudCenter 4.10.0 and later does NOT install a Java-based agent for custom images that are created by running the installer on a Base OS image. -

While CloudCenter 4.10.0 included both the new Go agent as well as the old Java agent for application VMs that use dynamic bootstrapping, CloudCenter 4.10.0.1 ONLY includes the new Go agent.

See Golang and Java Version Compatibility for additional details.

Integrations

The CCM installer installs x-Frames to prevent clickjacking and CSRF attacks. X-frames prevent a SNOW integration from functioning as designed – only for new installations.

If you have already installed the ServiceNow integration using an earlier CloudCenter release and are merely upgrading the CloudCenter platform to 4.10.0.1, the following information does not apply to you as the upgrade process handles the uninstall script.

For new CCM installations, you can uninstall x-frame and proceed with the SNOW integration. To uninstall x-frame, issue the following commands on the CCM server as a root user:

sed -i "s/add_header X-Frame-Options SAMEORIGIN;//g" /etc/nginx/conf.d/cliqr-default.conf
service nginx restart

See ServiceNow Extensions for ServiceNow integration details.

Resolved Issues

The following issues were resolved/addressed in CloudCenter 4.10.0.1:

  • CSCvk42321: When attempting to delete a cloud in the Root tenant, the user received an error saying this cloud still has active accounts which had to be cleaned up. Since the sub-tenant is already deleted, there is no way for the admin to clean-up the cloud account and this cloud.   
    Resolution: CloudCenter 4.10.0.1 includes a fix to delete cloud accounts associated with a tenant when a tenant is deleted. This will unblock the deletion of clouds.

  • CSCvm22145: The CCM UI web page did not use anti-framing measures. 
    Resolution: CloudCenter 4.10.0.1 includes a fix to use anti-framing measures to prevent clickjacking and Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks.

  • CSCvm22195: When a customer scanned the CloudCenter platform for vulnerabilities, they found that the JavaScript libraries used by CloudCenter had some vulnerabilities.  
    ResolutionCloudCenter 4.10.0.1 includes a fix to ensure that the JavaScript libraries have been updated to get rid of the vulnerabilities.

  • CSCvm94645: When using SSO Shibboleth in the CloudCenter platform, it is not possible to configure the forceAuthN parameter.  
    ResolutionCloudCenter 4.10.0.1 includes an enhancement to allow users to toggle IDP force authentication settings (disabled by default to keep with the Spring SAML default config). To enable forceAuthN, set SAML_FORCEAUTHENTICATION=true in the /etc/sysconfig/mgmtserver.conf file and restart the CCM server.

  • CSCvn00357: When you model an application deployment, add a password that uses a Parameter with Type and which requires a confirmation, the password parameter is not passed to the IPAM Callout.  
    ResolutionCloudCenter 4.10.0.1 includes a fix to ensure that all parameters defined while creating an application profile are available in the IPAM Callout scripts.

  • CSCvn09387:  Windows 2012/2016 deployments failed when they contain initialization scripts requiring multiple reboots.  
    Resolution: CloudCenter 4.10.0.1 includes a fix to ensure that 
    Windows deployments with initialization scripts requiring multiple reboots function as designed.
