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

Database Upgrade and default major version change

Newly deployed Data Lake and Data Hub clusters with Cloudera Runtime 7.2.7 or above are now configured to use a PostgreSQL version 11 database by default.

A new mandatory Database Upgrade capability is now available for existing Data Lake and Data Hub clusters. If you are running clusters on Cloudera Runtime version 7.2.6 or below, please upgrade to a more recent version before performing the database upgrade.

The major version of the database used by Data Lake or Data Hub clusters is now also displayed on the Database page of the respective service.

Cloudera strongly recommends that the Database Upgrade is performed on all clusters running PostgreSQL version 10 before November 10, 2022.

For more information, see Upgrading database to Postgres 11

FreeIPA recipes and recipe type changes

You can register and attach recipes to run on a specific FreeIPA host group. For more information, see Recipes.

The following recipe types have been renamed for Data Hub, Data Lake, and FreeIPA recipes:
  • pre-service-deployment (formerly pre-cluster-manager-start)
  • post-service-deployment (formerly post-cluster-install)

These changes will not affect existing recipe automation.

Validate and prepare for upgrade

Before you perform a Data Hub upgrade, you can run the new Validate and Prepare option to check for any configuration issues and begin the Cloudera Runtime parcel download and distribution. Using the validate and prepare option does not require downtime and makes the maintenance window for an upgrade shorter. For more information see Preparing for an upgrade.

AWS Hong Kong region

You can now register a CDP environment and create Data Hubs in the AWS Hong Kong Region (ap-east-1). See updated Supported AWS regions.

Changed permissions for managing proxies in CDP

  • Owner or SharedResourceUser can view details of a proxy.
  • Owner can delete a proxy registration from CDP.

This change has been introduced for new proxy registrations only; That is, proxies registered prior to this change continue to be managed by a PowerUser.
