Features

Secure HTTP Endpoints We've added the ability for you to secure your HTTP endpoints. You can now control who can access Dashboards or API endpoints you create in FlowForge.

Read-only Users We've added a new user role for Read-only access. This will allow users to login to your FlowForge project and view the Node-RED flows without them being able to edit anything.

Static Outbound IP Addresses We've updated FlowForge Cloud so that all outbound traffic from your projects now comes from a single IP address. When trying to access a remote resource such as a database it is often a requirement for the IP address the traffic comes from to be fixed.

Improvements

We've made a number of improvements to the overall experience of running FlowForge.

  • Allow both key and component in a ff-data-table column definition #43
  • Default Stack and Templates #989
  • Provide platform containers and base stack container for administrators #917

Bug Fixes

We've fixed the following bugs in this release.
