Important bug fixes

  • ROX-4671: We addressed an issue that caused high CPU usage in Sensor.
  • ROX-4607: Previously, the admission controller didn’t enforce policies with single cluster scope. We’ve fixed this issue.
  • ROX-4580: Previously, in the Configuration Management view, the StackRox portal didn’t show background for selected deployments listed in the Service Account details panel. Now the StackRox portal now shows the details.
  • ROX-4543 and ROX-4272: Previously, in the Configuration Management view, the StackRox portal didn’t show deployments details panel when you selected from Image > Deployment. The StackRox portal now correctly shows the details.
  • ROX-4429: Previously, the automatic upgrades wouldn’t work if the cluster reported some resources as unavailable. We’ve updated the StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform to ensure that automatic upgrades work as usual as long as the required resources are available on the cluster.

Important system changes

Snooze CVEs for a specific time

You can now snooze CVEs for a specified time such as a day, a week, two weeks, a month, or indefinitely (until you unsnooze).


  • You can now request pretty-printed JSON responses for all v1 API endpoints by adding the ?pretty path parameter in your requests. For more information, see the Use the API topic.
  • You can use:
    • the SuppressCVEs endpoint /v1/cves/suppress to snooze CVEs for specific duration, and
    • the UnsuppressCVEs endpoint /v1/cves/unsuppress to unsnooze CVEs.

StackRox portal

  • We’ve added a new Deployment Name field in the Deployment Details panel for the Violations and Risk views.
  • In the Risk view, the browser address bar now shows the complete address (including the applied filtering) when you use local page filtering. You can copy and share the address for the filtered view with others.

Central, Sensor, and Collector on OpenShift

We’ve updated the Security Context Constraint (SCC) priority to 0 so that they don’t supersede default SCCs.
