Release Notes for Styra DAS

This page provides Styra DAS SaaS Release Notes for May 2024.

May 15, 2024

The Styra DAS 20240515 release delivers the following changes.

New Features and Changes

Beta UI Additions

The Push datasource contents are now editable in the new Beta UI.

May 10, 2024

The Styra DAS 20240510 release delivers the following changes.

New Features and Changes

HTTP Datasource timeout parameter

HTTP datasources now support specifying an optional timeout parameter via the PUT /v1/datasources/{datasource} endpoint, which defaults to 60 seconds. Previously HTTP datasources had an implicit 1 hour timeout which was not configurable by the user. This parameter will be added to the UI in an upcoming release.

Fixed Issues

Git sync failure and errors when fetching policies from Git branches

In rare cases, Git sync could fail for a tenant due to a conflict between multi-thread processes accessing the same Git repository copy in DAS. This could also result in API request errors when fetching files from a Git branch for that repository.

May 6, 2024

The Styra DAS 20240506 release delivers the following changes.

New Features and Changes

Datasource Agent status in Deployments

The Deployments tab now reports the status and version of the Datasource Agent connected to the System when using Datasource Agent v1.5.4 or later. Customers with existing Datasource Agent deployments who would like to see the Datasource Agent status reported should delete the existing Datasource Agent API token (token ending in datasources-agent) in the associated system, download a new manifest from the Install instructions for that system, and update their Datasource Agent deployment.

Fixed Issues

Git status update failure for some new tenants

Some new tenants with Git-backed resources experienced Git status update failures resulting in failed Git syncs.

May 2, 2024

The Styra DAS 20240502 release delivers the following changes.

New Features and Changes

Upgraded to OPA v0.64.1

The internal version of OPA used by Styra DAS has now been upgraded to OPA 0.64.1.

Beta UI Additions

Added support for the Okta datasource in the new UI.

Git sync status improvements

Improved the speed and consistency of Git sync status updates by batching and unifying update processes.

Fixed Issues

Datasource Agent receives 403 for agent status publishing with authz v2

Agent status updates from the Datasource Agent without an associated System ID receive a 403 when the tenant has authz v2 enabled. In these scenarios, the Datasource Agent will stop further agent status update requests, and the Datasource Agent version will not be displayed in the Deployments tab. This behavior only affects agent status updates (i.e., agent version and status) and does not impact datasource status updates. The Datasource Agent manifest for the Kubernetes System install instructions has been updated to include the STYRA_SYSTEM_ID env variable. Customers using the Datasource Agent in other Systems can manually update their Datasource Agent configurations to include the System ID. Customers using a single Datasource Agent to run datasources for multiple Systems or Stacks should omit the System ID from the configuration to prevent the agent from filtering datasources to only those for the configured System ID.

Decision replay fails for Systems with invalid policies

For Systems with invalid policies (e.g., an invalid import reference), decision replay would fail without any error indication.

Decision replay fails for Custom Systems without Library data

For some Custom system configurations, decision replay could fail if the system did not import any Library data.

Library with default name conflicts with Workspace policies

Using the package name default for a Git-backed Library name could result in conflicts with Workspace-level Git-backed policies.
