SIMP Console Beta 0.18.0 Available

We are proud to announce the availability of SIMP Console 0.18.0. This is primarily a bugfix and refactoring release as we work towards a more complete Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) solution.

Permissions

At this stage of the beta program, we are not guaranteeing database backward compatibility. You may have to rm -rf /var/db/simp/simp-console.db if using SQLite, or drop database and create database if using PostgreSQL. Once SIMP Console 1.0 is released we will support database upgradability.

Release Notes

  • Fix bug with the database schema upgrader.
  • Refactor google auth and LDAP plugins to work with the new RBAC APIs.
  • Increase security by performing most authentication and authorization in an independent middleware layer.
  • Update the permissions tab to match new RBAC settings.
  • Add swagger REST API documentation generator at /api/.
  • Numerous small UI bugfixes.
