1. Release Notes for Ansible Tower Version 3.8.4

1.1. Ansible Tower Version 3.8.4

Fixes in Ansible Tower:

  • Running inventories of ~60k hosts no longer takes a very long time for events to show up

  • Removed artifact_data from data sent to analytics as part of playbook_on_stats, since artifact_data can contain PII or sensitive data

  • Updated Django version to 2.2.20

  • Regular users are no longer experiencing longer load times than a superuser when clicking to edit a job template

  • Updated password validation support to allow modifying password complexity requirements using some Django configurations

  • Fixed AWS inventory tags filtering to support the OR condition

  • Fixed a python-urllib3 vulnerability (CVE-2021-33503)

Fixes in Ansible Platform 1.2.4:

  • Added the ability for Ansible Automation Platform 1.2.x to transition from venvs to execution environments smoothly to platform 2.x This includes three new awx-manage commands, check associations, and export venvs for building an execution environment.

  • Added Ansible 2.9.25 to the platform installer package

  • Fixed Tower’s NGINX Instance vulnerability (CVE-2021-23017). For any deployments on RHEL 8, the package comes from RHEL, and just applying the RHEL update resolves this.

  • Updated the backup and restore to now work without the automationhub group
