0.8.0-Preview Release Notes



Since it has been over a year since the previous release it is possible not all breaking changes are accounted for, so you should test this out first and backup your redis/ledis data. Some known breaking changes:

  • The elastic configuration is different, see System configuration :: ElasticConf for an example of what it should look like
  • In order to support linking related incidents, a migration will run on the redis/ledis data on the first startup which will need to complete before Bosun starts running
