Dalibo announce the immediate availability of temBoard 8.0. This new major release review authentication between interface and agents, brings new features, and renews the foundations of the project. Follow carefuly upgrade guide for a reliable migration.

Unifed Authentication

temBoard 8 improves security of communication between interface and agents and simplify the deployment and configuration of agents. Now the interface signs each request sent to the agent with an asymetric cryptgraphic key. Agent accepts a single public signing key and verify request, allowing request from a signle interface.

temBoard 8 agent does not accept shared-secret authentication anymore. Also, temBoard 8 interface only has a user base, authentified by password. temBoard 8 interface is now the identity provider for agents which does not have its own user base anymore.

Restyled Documentation

temBoard's documentation has been deeply restyled for better readability. Choosing Material Design theme with temBoard primary color and integrated search provides better navigation.


To ease transition, temBoard 8 interface is fully compatible with temBoard agent 7.11. Don't miss the upgrade guide for a smooth migration. Next 8.X releases will drop temBoard agent 7 support.

A lot of improvements and fixes landed in temBoard 8. temBoard web UI received a lot of improvements. Error presentation is not modal anymore, and every error is dismissable. New about pages help you to know your PostgreSQL instances and your temBoard installation. Instance inventory is available for download in CSV format. Both temBoard interface and agent restarts background services upon crash. Web UI and agent has now a new unified CLI with new subcommands.
