Spring Boot 2.2.0 M6 Release Notes

For changes in earlier milestones, please refer to:

Upgrading from Spring Boot 2.1

See instructions in the 2.2.0.M1 release notes for upgrading from Spring Boot 2.1.

Health Indicator

A number of classes have been deprecated to implement the new health indicator groups feature. If you are configuring a custom HealthIndicator via CompositeHealthIndicatorConfiguration, you’ll need to update it to use CompositeHealthContributorConfiguration instead.

New and Noteworthy

Check the configuration changelog for a complete overview of the changes in configuration.

Health Indicator Groups

It is now possible to organize health indicators into groups. A typical example if you deploy your application to Kubernetes, you may want one different sets of health indicators for your “liveness” and “readiness” probes.

Groups can be configured via configuration properties. The following create a custom group with only the DataSource indicator:

The custom group can be invoked by hitting localhost:8080/actuator/health/custom.

Check the updated reference documentation for more details.

Auto-configuration for Flyway JavaMigrations

Flyway will be auto-configured to use any JavaMigration beans that are found in the application context.
