Free Text Search

Free text search now searches all fields rather than only @rawstring.

Load Balancing of Queries

Humio can now balance and reuse existing queries internally in the cluster. Load balancer configuration to achieve this is no longer needed. See the Configuration reference pages and Cluster documentation.

TLS Support

TLS encrypts communication using TLS to/from Zookeeper, Kafka, and other Humio nodes.

IPlocation Database Management Changed

The database used as data source for the ipLocation() query function must be updated within 30 days when a new version of the database is made public by MaxMind. To comply with this, the database is no longer shipped as part of the humio artifacts but will either:

  • Be fetched automatically by Humio provided that Humio is allowed to connect to the db update service hosted by Humio. This is the default behaviour.

  • Have to be updated manually (See ipLocation() reference page).

If the database cannot be automatically updated and no database is provided manually, the ipLocation() query function will no longer work.

Configuration Change

Controlling what nodes to use as query coordinators. Due to the load balancing in Humio, customers that previously relied on load balancing to control which nodes are query coordinators now need to set QUERY_COORDINATOR to false on nodes they do not want to become query coordinators. See the Configuration reference pages and Cluster documentation.

Change Log

  • Free text search now searches all fields rather than only @rawstring.

  • Humio can now balance and reuse existing queries internally in the cluster. See Configuration reference pages

  • Internal communication in a Humio installation can now be encrypted using TLS. See the TLS Configuration reference page.

  • Added support for WebIdentityTokenCredentialsProvider on AWS.

  • The data source for the ipLocation() query function is no longer shipped with humio but installed/updated separately.

  • Introduced a new ChangeViewOrRepositoryDescription permission for editing the description of a view or repository. This was previously tied to ConnectView and any user with that permission will now have the new permission as well.
