What’s New in Version 2.8.0

You can find all issues related to this release on our Roadmap.

Icinga DB

It’s happening. Yes. Our latest achievement is now available for those who are willing to participate in this enormous
endeavour. Icinga Web 2 is also a crucial part of it and accompanies the first release of Icinga DB. If you like
to participate, don’t forget to update Icinga Web 2 as well.

Support for PHP 7.4 and MySQL 8

We also made sure that you won’t be disappointed by Icinga Web 2 if you’re running PHP 7.4 or trying to access a MySQL
database with version 8+. These should pose no issues anymore now. But if you still somehow managed to get issues
please let us now and we’ll fix it asap.

  • Exceptions with MySQL 8 #3740
  • Support for PHP 7.4 #4009

Find What You Search For

It’s been previously not possible to properly filter for range values. This was especially true for custom variables
where, if you searched for e.g. _host_interfaces>=20, you wouldn’t find the correct results. If you often copy some
values in our search fields you may also been a victim of extraneous spaces which are now automatically trimmed.

  • Filter: more/less than doesn’t seem to working #3974
  • Search object followed by a space finds no results #4002

Don’t Leave Your Little Sheep Unattended

It’s time again to further restrict your users. It’s now possible to completely block any access to contacts and
contactgroups for specific roles. These won’t ever see again who’s notified and who’s not. Also, if you are using
single accounts for a group of people you can now disable password changes for those.

  • Prohibit access to contacts and contactgroups #3973
  • Allow to forbid password changes on specific user accounts #3286

In and Out, Access Control Done Right

While we have no burgers (but cookies!) you are nevertheless welcome to visit Icinga Web 2. And now you can also
successfully leave while being externally authenticated and unsuccessfully enter while being unable to not add
extraneous spaces to your username.

  • External logout not working from the navigation dashboard #3995
  • Username with extraneous spaces are not invalid #4030
