Version 7.5.x Release Notes


May 12, 2021

New Features#

MIA_ prefix management for Public Variables#

It is now possible to avoid the addition of the MIA_ prefix to public variables keys when they are saved in the public variables folder. To do so, console administrators can access the Console CMS and add to your project deploy object the following property useMiaPrefixEnvs set to false. After this, remove from the public variables folder all MIA_ prefixes from all public variables keys of all .env files.


MIA_ prefix is necessary for projects that use bash script for their deploy pipelines. Therefore, this property should be set to true only for projects that use mlp.

New Features#

Fast Data Single Views#

In the Design area, you can now configure your Single Views, using the Single Views page of the Fast Data section.

Fast Data Single Views

Define the fields of the single view and which Single View Creators services will update the single view in the Data Model section.

You can also set the strategies for each projection directly in the Strategies section of the single view you need to update.

Large Configmaps support#

Core services configuration now supports ConfigMaps larger than 1MB (this limit is imposed by Kubernetes). Large ConfigMaps will be automatically split into multiple parts and joined back together during deployment.


ConfigMap resources cannot be split more than 20 times, hence the current maximum supported size for a ConfigMap is 16MB. This is necessary to avoid the handle of very huge files, that could bring to DOS attack if not correctly handled. If you have a ConfigMap that exceeds this limit, contact your Mia-Platform referent.

Public Variables warning customization#

In the Public Variables section, an explanatory message with a documentation link is displayed anytime a user lands on that page for the first time. This message can now be personalized by the Console administrator directly from the notification section of the Console CMS.

The Single View Creator Plugin is now available in the Marketplace. The plugin helps you to easily keep your Single Views updated. You only need to write three configuration files and then you are ready to deploy.

When you create the service from the plugin, all the environment variables are already set. What you need to do is just to change some of them depending on your needs.

The plugin is available only on Mia-Platform PaaS Marketplace. In order to have it on your on-premise installation, please contact your Mia-Platform technical referent.
