This release of the Management Console service introduces the following changes:

New features

Single existing Azure resource group

The option to use your existing Azure resource group is now available in CDP. This allows you to have your credential's role definition scoped to that particular resource group instead of the whole subscription. The option to "Select Resource Group" is available on the UI on the Region, Networking and Security page of the register environment wizard. The corresponding CLI JSON parameter is resourceGroupName and the cdp environments create-azure-environment CLI option to enable is --resource-group-name <value>. If these parameters are not present, CDP defaults to creating new resource groups. See updated Azure Permissions and Resource group in Azure Requirements documentation, and updated Register an Azure environment.

Private endpoints for Azure database for PostgreSQL

The option to create private endpoints instead of service endpoints for Azure Database for PostgreSQL is now available when registering an Azure environment in CDP. The option to "Create Private Endpoints" is available on the UI in the "Network" section of the register environment wizard. The corresponding CLI JSON parameter is createPrivateEndpoints and the cdp environments create-azure-environment CLI option to enable private endpoints is --create-private-endpoints. The option is disabled by default. It can only be used with the single resource group feature and can only be enabled on subnets that have Azure network policies turned off. See Private endpoint for PostgreSQL.

Public Endpoint Access Gateway for AWS

During AWS environment registration, you can optionally enable Public Endpoint Access Gateway, which provides secure connectivity to UIs and APIs in Data Lake and Data Hub clusters deployed using private networking, allowing users to access these resources without complex changes to their networking or creating direct connections to cloud provider networks. See Public Endpoint Access Gateway.

Generate CLI command from the UI

You can quickly obtain CDP CLI commands from the CDP web interface for creating the following:

Disable cloud storage logging for an existing environment

By default, CDP sends collected service logs from VM nodes to the cloud storage that you provided for logs during environment registration. You can disable cloud storage logging for a specific environment, by navigating to environment details > Summary > Telemetry and turning off "Enable Cloud Storage Logging". Disabling this option will affect only newly created Data Hub clusters in that environment. See Enabling environment telemetry>Disable cloud storage logging for an existing environment.

Obtain your CDP tenant ID

You can now obtain your CDP tenant ID from CDP web interface,. See Obtain your CDP tenant ID.
