For private edition

  • Support for deploying Genesys Web Services and Applications in a single namespace with other private edition services has been implemented. No configuration changes are required to enable this alternative deployment scenario, but you must disable internal ingress to avoid roundtrip traffic outside the single namespace. To disable internal ingress, set entryPoints.internal.ingress.enabled to false. (GAPI-30852)
    More info: Configure GWS Ingress

  • To enhance container security, Genesys Web Services and Applications container images are now built on Red Hat Universal Base Image 8 (UBI8). (GAPI-28354)

For private edition

  • This release includes important security upgrades made to third-party software. (GAPI-30693)

September 17, 2021PrivateEdition.png

For private edition

  • Genesys Web Services and Applications now supports the use of arbitrary, or random, user IDs (UIDs) in OpenShift.

    • The securityContext settings exposed in the default values.yaml file specify the user and group IDs for the genesys user (500:500:500). You must override these Helm chart values if you want OpenShift to use arbitrary UIDs. For more information, see Configure Genesys Web Services and Applications.
    • Genesys Web Services and Applications is deployed using ServiceAccounts that use the restricted Security Context Constraint (SCC). In an earlier implementation, Genesys required you to deploy all private edition services using a ServiceAccount associated with the custom genesys-restricted SCC, to control permissions for the genesys user (500). Genesys now expects OpenShift to use arbitrary UIDs in your deployment, and the genesys-restricted SCC has been deprecated. If you previously deployed Genesys Web Services and Applications using the genesys-restricted SCC, Genesys recommends that you redeploy Genesys Web Services and Applications so that you use arbitrary UIDs. (GAPI-30097)

  • As of October 29, 2021, Genesys Web Services and Applications supports deployments on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) in Genesys Multicloud CX private edition, as part of the Early Adopter Program. (CPE-1958)
