Release Notes
Also available as:



If you are running ATLAS Service on the SUSE 11 platform, you must first upgrade Ambari to version or newer before upgrading to HDP 2.5.6.

To conform to security standards, ATLAS has disabled TLS v1 and TLS v1.1 protocols in HDP 2.5.5+ releases. However, on the SUSE 11 platform, the default curl command does not support TLS 1.2 protocol. This means an Atlas installation on the SUSE 11 platform requires AMBARI version or above, which will allow ATLAS Service to work with older (insecure) TLS protocols.

HDP 2.5.6 provides Atlas 0.7.1 and the following Apache patches:

  • ATLAS-1760: UI update to render property value per attribute type in entity definition.
