Microsoft Azure Event Grid explained for StackStorm users

October 05, 2017
by Dmitri Zimine

Two new event-driven systems were introduced last month. Event Grid from Microsoft Azure and Event Gateway from were launched two days apart from each other. An event that triggered these announcements seem to be emitted by Emit conference on serverless. Serverless computing became a primary driver for the event-centric approach, and as serverless architectural patterns emerged, the need for a dedicated event router became apparent.


September Pack Updates: Usability

Time for our monthly roundup of new packs on the StackStorm Exchange. This time it’s a new pack for Extreme Networks devices, and usability improvements to the Email, Ansible, Sensu and Napalm packs.


Quick One: ST2 2.4.1 is Released

September 18, 2017
by Lindsay Hill

Quick note today: We quietly published StackStorm 2.4.1 last week. Nothing major, just a few bug fixes.

First one: Mistral shutdown with systemd is much faster. The issue has been resolved upstream. We’ve fixed a couple more Mistral-related issues, including better handling of Unicode results.

For our RBAC users, we have fixed a problem where the the system user was being used for pack installation, not the actual user who requested the pack install.

Usual update process applies (backup first!!!).

August Pack Updates

August has rolled on by, but our Northern Hemisphere users have not been taking a break over summer: StackStorm Exchange updates continue, with new packs and updates. This time, we also have a request for our AWS pack users.


New and Improved StackStorm Docker Images!

August 30, 2017
by Warren Van Winckel

Tagged Images

For a little while now, the stackstorm/stackstorm docker image has been tagged with the version of StackStorm that comes pre-installed in the image. Now, you can pin your installation to a specific release of StackStorm! Images tagged with “latest” contain the most recent StackStorm release at the time it was tagged.

The stackstorm/stackstorm:2.4.0 image will always contain the 2.4.0 release of stackstorm. The previous release, 2.3.2, is available at stackstorm/stackstorm:2.3.2. We never again update stackstorm/stackstorm:2.3.2 after 2.4.0 is released. Any feature changes to st2-docker will only ever apply to the most recent stackstorm image.
