Version?Type?Release Date?Availability?End of Support












Bug fixes and updates.


Items that have been deprecated and may be removed in a future release.

  • The query function holtwinters() is now deprecated and will be removed along with the release of future version 1.73; therefore, its usage in alerts is not recommended.

New features and improvements

  • Falcon Data Replicator

    • Enforcing S3 file size limits (30MB) in FDR feeds. Files will not be ingested if they are above the limit.

  • UI Changes

    • Introduced the Social Login Settings feature: all customers with access to the organization identity providers page can now change social login settings in the UI. See Authentication & Identity Providers for details.

    • No longer possible to add a color to roles. Existing role colors removed from the UI.

  • Automation and Alerts

    • Improved performance when storing alert errors and trigger times in global.

  • Configuration

    • Set dynamic configuration BucketStorageWriteVersion to 3. This sets the format for files written to bucket storage to use a format that allows files larger than 2GB and incurs less memory pressure when decrypting files during download from the bucket. The new format is supported since 1.44.0 only.

    • Set minimum version for the cluster to be 1.44.0.

    • Changed the default value for AUTHENTICATION_METHOD from none to single-user.

      To set username and password, use the environment variables:

      See SINGLE_USER_USERNAME and SINGLE_USER_PASSWORD documentation for more details on these variables.

  • Other

    • Audit logging has been improved.

    • New metric global-operation-time: tracks local time spent processing each kind of message received on the global events topic.

Fixed in this release

  • UI Changes

    • The warning about unsaved changes being lost on an edited dashboard will now only show when actual changes have been made.

  • Other

    • Fixed a bug in decryption code used when decrypting downloaded files from bucket storage when version-for-bucket-writes=3. The bug did not allow to decrypt files larger than 2GB.

    • Fixed an issue where LogScale could log secrets to the debug log when configured to use LDAP or when configured to use SSL for Kafka.
