Release Notes
The following release notes are for the Business Edition of Portainer. For Community Edition release notes, refer to the GitHub releases page.

Release 2.14.2

Known issues

  • Known issue with manually adding an Edge Device environment through the Edge Device page when using Async mode, does not retain Async settings and needs to be manually added through the environment details page.
  • Image update notifications are currently not supported for private registries and private images in DockerHub. This is due to be fixed in our next major version.

Kubernetes

  • Fixed an issue where the kubeconfig downloadable from Portainer always had port 9443 in its URLs, even though the actual Portainer instance was being accessed via another port. portainer/portainer#7059

Docker

  • Fixed certificate file validation for .pem files portainer/portainer#7183
  • Fixed an issue when using a Mustache variable (e.g. {{service}}) multiple times in the YAML, where the UI should prompt for it only once and then reuse it (rather than prompting for it multiple times).
  • Fixed an issue when using a Mustache variable (e.g. {{path}}) with special characters in the value, where the resulting value would end up being HTML encoded.
  • Fixed issue around access control labels being ignored.

Portainer

  • Fixed an issue where the original admin user was unable to change their password when external authentication is enabled. portainer/portainer#7291
  • Fixed toggle state reset issue for custom logo and anonymous statistics. portainer/portainer#7278

  • Resolved an issue where new installs of recent Portainer releases had an extraneous (although innocuous) db version update on restart.

Edge

Release 2.14.1

Known issues

  • Known issue with manually adding an Edge Device environment through the Edge Device page when using Async mode, does not retain Async settings and needs to be manually added through the environment details page.
  • Image update notifications are currently not supported for private registries and private images in DockerHub. This is due to be fixed in our next major version.

Kubernetes

  • Improved KaaS cluster provisioning's cluster name validation to enforce restrictions that Google GKE expects.
  • Fixed issue of variable inputs not showing on deployment view when using custom templates.
  • Improved Portainer logging to better record the output from eksctl, the CLI tool used for Amazon EKS (KaaS) cluster provisioning.

Docker

  • Resolved an issue where users running Portainer with non-root access were receiving a 'Permission denied on docker-compose' error since the recent update to Docker Compose V2. portainer/portainer#6906

Portainer

  • Fix to improve LDAP, etc. authentication/login speed when there are many thousands of users.
