DASHBOARDS-3419The file hierarchy in the deployed ZIP files has been updated. All configuration files are now located in a folder called "configurations" at the root of the unpacked ZIP. All documentation has been updated to reflect this change.
DASHBOARDS-00000The custom HTTP status code "470" returned by the RestAPI in v. 1.x when a request is attempted and the user is not authenticated has been changed to a standard "401" status code in v. ≥ 2.x. If you are relying on the RestAPI to return a 470 status when unauthenticated requests are attempted, you should update your custom application to use the 401 status instead. See also

New Features

Dashboard architecture change in 2.xRelease 2.0.0-funcrel is the first release of the CAST Dashboards that will use Spring Boot technology. In the most basic terms, this means that it is now possible to deploy the CAST Dashboards without the need for a standalone web application server such as Apache Tomcat - the web application server is instead embedded within the delivered dashboard. This will simplify and speed up the deployment of the CAST Dashboards. See
SSL connection to CAST Storage Service / PostgreSQL instanceIt is now possible to configure the dashboards to connect to use an SSL encrypted connection to a CAST Storage Service / PostgreSQL instance that is configured to accept incoming SSL connections. See
