Jama Connect 8.49.2 Hotfix Standard

By Chloe posted 13 days ago


Release date AU/US/EMEA: 2020/07/28

This patch release resolves issues from additional permissions that adversely affected reporting performance and incorrectly hid data. Additionally, an issue to the Baseline Compare report was addressed where relationships were not being included.


Self-hosted organization administrators now have the ability to selectively extend permission checking for specific custom reports. 


Notes for self-hosted administrators

  • This release requires Replicated version 2.42.4 or later.
  • This release requires that specific Replicated network interface configuration options are set when installing or upgrading.
  • The provided installation script ensures that the correct version of Replicated is installed and automates the network interface configuration described above. We recommend running the installation script instead of manually updating these configurations. 

Notes for installation and upgrades using the provided installation script (recommended):

  • Run 'curl' command to install using the provided install script:
    • curl -sSL "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jamasoftware-ps/JamaConnect/master/install.sh" | sudo bash
  • Once script has finished running, navigate to the Admin Console and follow the standard upgrade procedures.


Notes for installation and upgrades using Airgap or installs/upgrade that don’t use the provided installation script:

  • For new installations, Docker must be installed before starting the Replicated installation.
  • Replicated version 2.42.4 or later is required.
  • During the installation or upgrade, you are prompted to select the network interface for Replicated. You must select docker0 at the prompt:
    • "Please choose one of the following network interfaces: [0] eth0 [1] eth1 [2] docker0 Enter desired number (0-2):"
