1.17.2 (January 23, 2024)

KNOWN ISSUES:

  • connect: Consul versions 1.17.2 and 1.16.5 perform excessively strict TLS SAN verification on terminating gateways, which prevents connections outside of the mesh to upstream services.

  • ui: update token list on Role details page to show only linked tokens [GH-19912]
