Foundational services a prerequisite for flexibility

IBM Cloud Pak foundational services is now a prerequisite. Event Streams supports foundational services version 3.19.0 or later 3.x releases, providing support for both the Continuous Delivery (CD) and the Long Term Service Release (LTSR) version of foundational services (for more information, see the prerequisites).

Simplified installation and upgrade process


Event Streams 11.1.0 introduces automatic upgrade of Event Streams instances. The Event Streams operator deploys and manages only a single version of the Event Streams instance. When upgrading Event Streams, the operator upgrades instances to the version supported by the operator, so you no longer have to upgrade the instances separately.

Support for SCRAM authentication

Event Streams version 11.1.0 introduces support for SCRAM authentication access to the Event Streams UI (for more information, see configuring UI security). Kafka users that have been configured to use SCRAM-SHA-512 authentication can log in to the UI and access components based on the ACL permissions of the user.

Note: The following features are not available in this release of Event Streams when using SCRAM authentication:

  • Metrics information and dashboards
  • Geo-replication
  • Event Streams CLI
