Security Fixes

  • This release includes important security upgrades made to third-party software. (GCLOUD-18873)

For private edition

  • As of December 23, 2021, Universal Contact Service supports deployments on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) in Genesys Multicloud CX private edition, as part of the Early Adopter Program. (CPE-1943)

September 10, 2021PrivateEdition.png

For private edition

  • UCS now supports the use of arbitrary, or random, user IDs (UIDs) in OpenShift.

    • The Dockerfile has been modified to specify container and file ownership as user=500 (genesys) and group=0 (root).
    • The podSecurityContext 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.
    • UCS 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 <service> using the genesys-restricted SCC, Genesys recommends that you redeploy <service> so that you use arbitrary UIDs. (UCSX-2349)
