New features

In alignment with the Apache Flink support of Java 17 in beta mode, we provide an updated VVP Flink 1.18.1 image ready to run with Java 17.


Ververica Platform Kubernetes Operator integrated with Authentication/Authorization/RBAC


If authentication is already enabled, users will need to update Ververica Platform deployment definition custom resources. With this improvement, the resources now require authentication to be reconciled by the Ververica Platform K8s operator.

We are introducing an enhancement to the VVP Kubernetes Operator that integrates seamlessly with Ververica Platform's Authentication/Authorization and RBAC features. This update ensures that the operator respects Ververica Platform's security settings, preventing unauthorized creation of Flink deployments in Ververica Platform namespaces.

Previously, Ververica’s Kubernetes Operator handled RBAC similarly to open-source operators, restricting RBAC to a specific Kubernetes namespace. With this enhancement, users can achieve more granular access control by configuring permissions within designated Ververica Platform namespaces. This approach offers a tailored and secure solution compared to the broader, Kubernetes namespace-based RBAC typical of open-source operators.

For further details, see the Kubernetes operator configuration documentation.

Bug fixes

UI shows one event "Awaiting cluster teardown" every 3 seconds

Previously, users experienced an issue where an "Awaiting cluster teardown" notification would repeatedly appear every 3 seconds during the teardown process, leading to potential confusion and clutter in the UI. We have corrected this behavior to ensure the notification no longer appears repeatedly but just once per operation.
