This maintenance release accumulated more than 30 bugfixes and important security updates in the project upstream dependencies: st2 core, orquesta workflow engine, st2web UI, and st2chatops. There were more than 10 pip updates and over 100 npm dependencies updated of low, high and critical severity. Outside of that, for Docker images the OS-level dependencies were refreshed. The patch release doesn't introduce any breaking changes and we recommend updating.


Github Action to deploy StackStorm to AWS

Mar 14, 2023

Guest post by Bitovi, a StackStorm partner.

StackStorm is a powerful automation engine, but has a lot of moving pieces, configuration details, corner cases, and a steep learning curve. Many compare st2 with K8s and, indeed, you can spend weeks stitching things together to make the StackStorm installation and configuration pipeline fit your specific needs. Then you start benefiting from automation!
At Bitovi we work a lot with CI/CD, Github Actions and we created an action that helps deploying StackStorm to AWS in under 15 minutes, including all the configuration. It’s a time-saving shortcut to get your deployment ready in the cloud. Today, we want to share it with the StackStorm community.

Override default resource status: New feature in StackStorm 3.7.0

April 22, 2022

By Amanda McGuinness of intive

Coming up in StackStorm 3.7.0 is a new feature that allows administrators of a StackStorm installation to “override” the default resource status that was specified by the pack owners.StackStorm 3.7.0 is currently going through release preparation, and will be released soon.

One of the benefits of StackStorm is the large variety of packs available on the StackStorm Exchange. But sometimes, users may not want the default content status provided by the community packs. We’re introducing a new feature into StackStorm 3.7.0 to make this easier to manage.

StackStorm v3.4.1 – Security fix – CVE-2021-28667

Mar 16, 2021

by Tomaz Muraus and @blag

Today we are announcing StackStorm v3.4.1, a bug fix release which fixes a security issue which has been uncovered recently.

The issue affects anyone who is running StackStorm under Python 3 and doesn’t have a system locale / encoding which is used for StackStorm service processes (st2api, st2actionrunner, etc.) set to UTF-8. Under such conditions, if StackStorm receives a payload with unicode characters which also results in the payload being logged, StackStorm process would go into an infinite-loop trying to decode that payload. This would cause the affected service to have a high CPU utilization and also service log file to grow either until the process is killed or all the available disk space is exhausted (basically result in a DoS).

If you are running StackStorm under Python 3, you are strongly encouraged to upgrade to this release.

For more details, please see the sections below.
