Cockpit 222

Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. We release regularly. Here are the release notes from version 222.

Logs: More flexible text filters

The text filter gained new since: and boot: quantifiers which restrict the logs to a given time span or the number of a previous boot; for example, since:-12hours or boot:-2. The “Time” dropdown controls these fields, and continues to have the same standard options as before, but they can now be customized easily.

The service:unitname filter now also accepts a unit name without the .service suffix. This mirrors the systemctl command line behaviour.

Logs filtering by time and boot

Services, Dashboard: Hide some buttons when access is limited

Similarly to previous releases, the Services and Dashboard pages will now hide buttons for privileged actions when the logged in user doesn’t have administrative access.

Webserver: Lock down cockpit.service privileges

The cockpit.service unit which runs Cockpit’s TLS proxy gained several additional privilege restriction options. This has been tested to work with all supported authentication methods and should not cause any behaviour change/regression. If you notice problems, please report a bug.
