- The offline Update Center signature may expire and old versions of the product do not start up (BEE-10093)
The offline Update Center can only be updated by upgrading a trusted WAR file, giving no added security by signing the file that is inside the WAR file. The product might not start up when the certificate used to sign the JSON is no longer valid (occurs if the product had not been upgraded in a long time). The JSON embedded inside the WAR file is no longer signed.
- Duplicate Pipeline Template Catalogs in the Configuration as Code (CasC) for Controllers
jenkins.yamlfile on each instance restart (BEE-12722)
If a Pipeline Template Catalog is configured in the CasC
jenkins.yamlfile and the
idproperty is not defined, the catalog is duplicated on each instance restart and in the exported CasC configuration.
- Java 11 is now required
Beginning with the September release, Java 11 is now required to run CloudBees CI. It is not possible to run the operations center, the controllers, or agents on Java 8 any longer. Java Web Start is no longer supported for inbound agents.
For more information, refer to Migrating to Java 11.
- When you upgrade to Java 11, you must update your Java garbage collection arguments (BEE-16018)
Garbage collection has been updated in Java 11. Many of the previously recommended arguments are no longer supported. When you upgrade your JDK to Java 11, you must also update your garbage collection configuration. Using unsupported Java arguments will result in startup failure.
For more information, refer to Adding Java arguments to the Jenkins service configuration file.
