Use Github Actions to grant just-in-time access

1 March 2023

zli v. 6.16.3

New

  • Github Actions. Automate granting just-in-time access to your targets through the BastionZero integration with Github Actions

Fixes

  • [Released 20 February] Proxy policies. This release of the zli contains changes needed to support the issue with modifying proxy policies from web app

bzero v. 7.6.3

For those who install bzero using Helm, for this release only, you must:
  1. 1.
    Uninstall the bzero agent: helm uninstall bctl-agent -n {namespace-you-installed-the-agent-under-if-any}
  2. 2.
    Update to the latest chart version: helm repo update bastionzero
  3. 3.
    Re-install using Helm as before. Detailed instructions are here
It is important to note that as long as you register your cluster with the same name as before, re-installation of the bzero agent will not create a duplicate cluster in your organization. All existing policies pertaining to your cluster will also be maintained.
With the fix to helm upgrade in this bzero release, you can upgrade the bzero agent in the future by using helm upgrade. The updated docs here explain how to use the upgrade command. They also include a Terraform example as well as some guidance on how to use a Kubernetes secret rather than passing the registration secret directly.
This change has no impact on existing clusters. However, in the future, when you are ready to consume the latest Helm chart, you must uninstall the bzero agent, pull the latest Helm chart, and then reinstall bzero before you will be able to use helm upgrade.
Helm does not automatically update the Helm chart when there are changes. Check our latest release to stay up-to-date.
Run helm repo update bastionzero to update to the latest chart version.

Enhancements

  • Log level. For Kubernetes targets that are installed through Helm, you can specify what log level you would like the agent set to through logLevel in the installation command. Valid options include: disabled, trace, debug, info, warn, and error. PLEASE NOTE that you must be using the newest chart version and be running bzero v. 7.6.3+ to use this new functionality

Fixes

  • Kube agent shutdown. Resolved issue with Kube agent that was preventing graceful shutdown
  • Helm upgrade. Resolved issue with using the helm upgrade path to update the bzero agent. PLEASE NOTE that you must be using the newest chart version and be running bzero v. 7.6.3+ for the fixed upgrade functionality
