Turbot Enterprise

Highlights

  • Turbot File resources can store arbitrary data (e.g. metadata, application data) in Turbot for use across policies and controls. You can create and update them with Terraform too! For example, store application metadata in a File and then reference it for tagging cost centers etc using standard Turbot controls. Files support AKAs for easy cross reference and any change to a file will trigger real-time updates throughout your environment. We can’t wait to see what you connect!
  • Turbot managed stacks now support multiple terraform versions, including v0.11.x and v0.12.x. Each stack may target a specific version, giving you flexibility over changes and upgrades. (Migration note: we support most, but not all, features of the HCL and HCL 2.0 languages.)
  • Get process input and dependencies information via the GraphQL process() query.
  • Improved performance of notification queries and activity views.

AWS Mods

Highlights

  • 8 mods released!
  • New policies or changed policy names in: aws-sqs, aws-sns
  • Encryption at Rest controls for SQS and SNS.
  • Improved support for AWS China.
  • Rollout of selective event handling based on the resource’s CMDB policy. If a resource’s CMDB policy is not set to Enforce: Enabled, the EventBridge rules will be configured to not send any events for that resource. This will greatly reduce the amount of unnecessary events that Turbot listens for and handles today.

Turbot Terraform Provider

Highlights

  • Use data source turbot_control to get the status of a specific control for a resource and use it in your stacks.
  • Added allow_idp_initiated_sso to the turbot_saml_directory resource, allowing setup of SAML with IdP-initiated SSO.
  • turbot_mod now supports timeouts (default 15m), giving flexibility for scripting mod installs.
  • Internal errors (5xx) received from the Turbot server will now show a friendly error message. We hope you never see them, but if you do, they should be easier to understand.

Turbot CLI

Highlights

  • Use turbot install [mod[@version]] to install a specific mod as a local dependency.
  • Credentials passed to turbot workspace configure are now validated before saving, so you can be confident they are good to go.
