Enterprise Server 3.10 release notes

March 20, 2024

📣 Esta no es la versión más reciente de Enterprise Server. Utilice el lanzamiento más reciente para las últimas correcciones de seguridad, rendimiento y errores.

Warning: A change to MySQL in GitHub Enterprise Server 3.9 and later may impact the performance of your instance. Before you upgrade, make sure you've read the "Known issues" section of these release notes.

3.10.9: Security fixes

  • HIGH: An attacker with an Administrator role in GitHub Enterprise Server could gain SSH root access via remote code execution. GitHub has requested CVE ID CVE-2024-2469 for this vulnerability, which was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty program.

  • HIGH: An attacker with an editor role in the Management Console could gain SSH access to the instance by command injection when configuring GeoJSON settings. GitHub has requested CVE ID CVE-2024-2443 for this vulnerability, which was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty program.

  • Packages have been updated to the latest security versions.

3.10.9: Bug fixes

  • In some cases, storage initialization on a new instance launch could cause EBS-backed data volumes to not be detected correctly.

  • Redundant messages caused an increase in the volume of events logged in /var/log/syslog.

  • Administrators could initiate an SSH audit that unknowingly unverified all SSH keys.

  • Attributes used to debug LDAP issues were not included in system logs.

  • In some cases, the codeload service could panic during shutdown and not terminate gracefully.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration with high availability enabled, the ghe-spokesctl command failed when run on a replica node.

  • If an administrator lost SSH access to an instance, authentication from the hypervisor console using the password for the root site administrator would fail.

  • On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled, GitHub Actions workflows that deployed GitHub Pages sites failed with the following error: Error: Deployment failed, try again later.

  • Organizations using projects (classic) returned an error log about a soon-to-be deprecated MySQL feature when viewing a project.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration, Jupyter notebooks did not render correctly.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration with many nodes, requests to the REST API for managing GitHub Enterprise Server would exceed the instance's HTTP timeouts.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license, in some cases, when a user deleted a custom pattern for secret scanning, GitHub Enterprise Server failed to close or delete the pattern's alerts.

  • When an administrator set a policy to require two-factor authentication (2FA) for an enterprise, a message incorrectly indicated that users without 2FA enabled on their account would be removed from the enterprise. These users will be removed from repositories and organizations in the enterprise, but not from the enterprise itself.

  • Some API endpoints for projects did not properly filter target repositories based on the users access.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license, viewing a secret scanning alert as a user without the security manager role would return a 500 error if the alert was generated from a Git tag instead of a normal commit.

  • When using GitHub Enterprise Importer to import repositories, ghost users in archive metadata files would cause an error when generating a list of migration conflicts using ghe-migrator conflicts.

  • After an administrator ran ghe-saml-mapping-csv, the output did not include the corresponding SQL query.

  • During a configuration run prompted by the delayed restart of the notebooks service, a container validation warning appeared in system logs.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration, rebuilds of GitHub Pages sites failed if no replicas of the GitHub Pages data were available (for example, on a newly restored cluster).

  • In some cases, manual repository maintenance using ghe-spokesctl would fail with the following error: panic: runtime error: invalid memory address or nil pointer dereference.

  • On an instance with code scanning enabled, upgrades to GitHub Enterprise Server version 3.9 or 3.10 could be slow if a large number of code scanning analyses were present on the instance.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license, the speed of migration for code scanning analyses is increased during an upgrade from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.10 or earlier.

3.10.9: Changes

  • Gists can be deleted using the Purge Gist button on the Deleted Gists page in Staff Tools.

  • People deploying a GitHub Enterprise Server instance in AWS can now deploy in an environment that uses Instance Metadata Service Version 2 (IMDSv2).

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration, MySQL replica nodes can be configured to skip database seeding.

  • The payload for the push webhook event is now limited to 2,048 commits. If there are more than 2,048 commits in a push, the webhook payload for that push will not contain any commits. If you need to fetch commit information, you can use the Commits endpoints of the REST API. For more information, see "Eventos y cargas de webhook" and "Puntos de conexión de la API de REST para confirmaciones."

3.10.9: Known issues

  • Custom firewall rules are removed during the upgrade process.

  • During the validation phase of a configuration run, a No such object error may occur for the Notebook and Viewscreen services. This error can be ignored as the services should still correctly start.

  • If the root site administrator is locked out of the Management Console after failed login attempts, the account does not unlock automatically after the defined lockout time. Someone with administrative SSH access to the instance must unlock the account using the administrative shell. For more information, see "Solución de problemas de acceso a la Consola de administración."

  • If an instance is configured to forward logs to a target server with TLS enabled, certificate authority (CA) bundles that a site administrator uploads using ghe-ssl-ca-certificate-install are not respected, and connections to the server fail.

  • The mbind: Operation not permitted error in the /var/log/mysql/mysql.err file can be ignored. MySQL 8 does not gracefully handle when the CAP_SYS_NICE capability isn't required, and outputs an error instead of a warning.

  • After an administrator upgrades from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.7 or 3.8, to 3.9 or 3.10, MySQL may not start back up. For more information, see "Problemas conocidos con las actualizaciones de la instancia."

  • After an administrator upgrades from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.7 or 3.8 to 3.9 or 3.10, I/O utilization will increase, and in some cases the instance's performance will be impacted. Reduced performance is due to the database server being upgraded from MySQL 5.7 to MySQL 8.0. For more information, see "Problemas conocidos con las actualizaciones de la instancia."

  • In rare circumstances, a small instance with both high availability and GitHub Actions configured may report that MSSQL replication is unhealthy after many upgrades with full upgrade packages. If you encounter this issue, contact GitHub Support.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration with high availability configured, ghe-config-apply times out while waiting for hookshot-go to start on replica application nodes.

  • After an administrator enables maintenance mode from the instance's Management Console UI using Firefox, the administrator is redirected to the Settings page, but maintenance mode is not enabled. To work around this issue, use a different browser.

  • On an instance hosted in AWS, system time may lose synchronization with Amazon's servers after an administrator reboots the instance.

  • On an instance with the HTTP X-Forwarded-For header configured for use behind a load balancer, all client IP addresses in the instance's audit log erroneously appear as 127.0.0.1.

  • In GitHub Enterprise Server 3.10 and later, the requirements for TLS security levels have changed due to an upgrade to containers in the underlying OS. On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled and a custom TLS certificate, users may experience disruptions with workflow runs if the TLS certificate uses weak encryption. Workflow runs will not trigger, and the following error message will appear in system logs for babeld.

    CA certificate key too weak
    

    To resolve this issue, confirm that your certificate complies with level 2 of the OpenSSL security specification. For more information, see SSL_CTX_set_security_level in the OpenSSL docs. For more information about reviewing your instance's logs, see "Acerca de los registros del sistema".

    If the error appears in babeld logs because your TLS certificate does not comply with level 2 of the specification, you must create and upload a new certificate with stronger security before you upgrade to GitHub Enterprise Server 3.10 or later. For more information, see "Configurar TLS."

  • On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled, after an upgrade from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.8 or earlier, an internal exception could prevent successful completion of some operations, like upgrades or the configuration of new replica nodes for high availability. If this issue occurs, administrators may see the following error in /data/user/common/ghe-config.log.

    Error occurred while executing servicing step 'Clone datatier login to secondary replica' for component CopyAvailabilityGroupSqlLogins during CopyAvailabilityGroupSqlLogins: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
    

    To resolve this issue, upgrade to the latest patch release of GitHub Enterprise Server.

  • In some situations, large .adoc files stored in a repository do not render properly in the web UI. The raw contents are still available to view as plaintext.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration, restoration of a backup using ghe-restore will exit prematurely if Redis has not restarted properly.

  • The HAProxy version has been updated in this release. You may encounter elevated error rates when HAProxy is upgraded as part of a hotpatch upgrade to a GitHub Enterprise Server instance. These elevated error rates should resolve within 5 minutes of the hotpatch being applied.

    Please note, when performing a hotpatch upgrade to GitHub Enterprise Server version 3.10.4 or higher you will encounter this known issue only if you are hotpatching from GitHub Enterprise Server version 3.10.3 or lower .

3.10.5: Security fixes

  • HIGH: An attacker with access to a Management Console user account with the editor role could escalate privileges through a command injection vulnerability in the Management Console. GitHub has requested CVE ID CVE-2024-0507 for this vulnerability, which was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty program.

  • HIGH: An attacker could leverage an unsafe reflection vulnerability in GitHub Enterprise Server (GHES) that could lead to reflection injection. This vulnerability could lead to the execution of user-controlled methods and remote code execution. To exploit this bug, an actor would need to be logged into an account on the GHES instance with the organization owner role. GitHub has requested CVE ID CVE-2024-0200 for this vulnerability, which was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty program.

  • Packages have been updated to the latest security versions.

3.10.5: Bug fixes

  • Support for authenticating to GitHub Enterprise Server using GitHub CLI OAuth App with a device code was unintentionally disabled.

  • During periods of high load, users would see intermittent interruptions to services when upstream services failed internal health checks.

  • On an instance in a high availability configuration, site administrators using the Manage GitHub Enterprise Server API may have seen a status of UNKNOWN for the MSSQL service.

  • On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled, some maintenance tasks could fail due to incomplete upgrade steps during previous upgrades to new releases of GitHub Enterprise Server.

  • Deleting a repository would enqueue unnecessary background jobs that would never complete.

  • When creating a new custom pattern for secret scanning, the "More options" section of the custom pattern form automatically collapsed when a user entered an invalid regex in the post processing expressions (before/after secret match or additional secret requirements).

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license and secret scanning enabled, users could experience a 500 error when viewing a secret scanning alert page in cases where the alerted commits belonged to the user and one or more commits could not be found.

  • Members of an enterprise were incorrectly allowed access to the REST API endpoints for Enterprise licensing.

  • On an instance that uses SAML for authentication, an upgrade from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.7 to 3.9 could result in user login failures due to an outdated gem dependency.

  • To avoid leaking secrets, the logging of all parameters is disabled for Management Console events in enterprise audit logs.

  • More detailed information is logged when a GitHub Enterprise Server upgrade failed due to missing database encryption keys.

  • The branch protection setting to require PR approval of the most recent reviewable push is included in exports from ghe-migrator or the Organization Migrations API.

3.10.5: Known issues

  • Custom firewall rules are removed during the upgrade process.

  • During the validation phase of a configuration run, a No such object error may occur for the Notebook and Viewscreen services. This error can be ignored as the services should still correctly start.

  • If the root site administrator is locked out of the Management Console after failed login attempts, the account does not unlock automatically after the defined lockout time. Someone with administrative SSH access to the instance must unlock the account using the administrative shell. For more information, see "Solución de problemas de acceso a la Consola de administración."

  • If an instance is configured to forward logs to a target server with TLS enabled, certificate authority (CA) bundles that a site administrator uploads using ghe-ssl-ca-certificate-install are not respected, and connections to the server fail.

  • The mbind: Operation not permitted error in the /var/log/mysql/mysql.err file can be ignored. MySQL 8 does not gracefully handle when the CAP_SYS_NICE capability isn't required, and outputs an error instead of a warning.

  • After an administrator upgrades from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.7 or 3.8, to 3.9 or 3.10, MySQL may not start back up. For more information, see "Problemas conocidos con las actualizaciones de la instancia."

  • After an administrator upgrades from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.7 or 3.8 to 3.9 or 3.10, I/O utilization will increase, and in some cases the instance's performance will be impacted. Reduced performance is due to the database server being upgraded from MySQL 5.7 to MySQL 8.0. For more information, see "Problemas conocidos con las actualizaciones de la instancia."

  • In rare circumstances, a small instance with both high availability and GitHub Actions configured may report that MSSQL replication is unhealthy after many upgrades with full upgrade packages. If you encounter this issue, contact GitHub Support.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration with high availability configured, ghe-config-apply times out while waiting for hookshot-go to start on replica application nodes.

  • After an administrator enables maintenance mode from the instance's Management Console UI using Firefox, the administrator is redirected to the Settings page, but maintenance mode is not enabled. To work around this issue, use a different browser.

  • On an instance with the HTTP X-Forwarded-For header configured for use behind a load balancer, all client IP addresses in the instance's audit log erroneously appear as 127.0.0.1.

  • In GitHub Enterprise Server 3.10 and later, the requirements for TLS security levels have changed due to an upgrade to containers in the underlying OS. On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled and a custom TLS certificate, users may experience disruptions with workflow runs if the TLS certificate uses weak encryption. Workflow runs will not trigger, and the following error message will appear in system logs for babeld.

    CA certificate key too weak
    

    To resolve this issue, confirm that your certificate complies with level 2 of the OpenSSL security specification. For more information, see SSL_CTX_set_security_level in the OpenSSL docs. For more information about reviewing your instance's logs, see "Acerca de los registros del sistema".

    If the error appears in babeld logs because your TLS certificate does not comply with level 2 of the specification, you must create and upload a new certificate with stronger security before you upgrade to GitHub Enterprise Server 3.10 or later. For more information, see "Configurar TLS."

  • On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled, after an upgrade from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.8 or earlier, an internal exception could prevent successful completion of some operations, like upgrades or the configuration of new replica nodes for high availability. If this issue occurs, administrators may see the following error in /data/user/common/ghe-config.log.

    Error occurred while executing servicing step 'Clone datatier login to secondary replica' for component CopyAvailabilityGroupSqlLogins during CopyAvailabilityGroupSqlLogins: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
    

    To resolve this issue, upgrade to the latest patch release of GitHub Enterprise Server.

  • In some situations, large .adoc files stored in a repository do not render properly in the web UI. The raw contents are still available to view as plaintext.

  • Restoring backups with ghe-restore on a GHES cluster will exit prematurely if redis has not restarted properly.

  • The HAProxy version has been updated in this release. You may encounter elevated error rates when HAProxy is upgraded as part of a hotpatch upgrade to a GitHub Enterprise Server instance. These elevated error rates should resolve within 5 minutes of the hotpatch being applied.

    Please note, when performing a hotpatch upgrade to GitHub Enterprise Server version 3.10.4 or higher you will encounter this known issue only if you are hotpatching from GitHub Enterprise Server version 3.10.3 or lower .

  • During periods of high traffic, interruptions in service may occur due to insufficient resource allocations for internal components. [Updated 2024-01-23]

  • The settings for enabling scheduled reminders were added unintentionally to this release. Scheduled reminders are not officially supported. [Updated: 2024-02-22]

Warning: A change to MySQL in GitHub Enterprise Server 3.9 and later may impact the performance of your instance. Before you upgrade, make sure you've read the "Known issues" section of these release notes.

3.10.4: Security fixes

  • HIGH: An improper authentication vulnerability was identified in GitHub Enterprise Server that allowed a bypass of private mode by using a specially crafted API request. Private mode is the mechanism that enforces authentication for publicly-scoped resources. For more information, see "Habilitar el modo privado."

    This vulnerability would allow unauthenticated attackers to gain access to various types of resources set as public on the instance. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would need network access to the GitHub Enterprise Server instance configured in private mode. This vulnerability was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty program and assigned CVE-2023-6847.

  • HIGH: An attacker with access to a Management Console user account with the editor role could escalate privileges by making requests to the endpoint used for bootstrapping the instance, and then reset the root site administrator password. GitHub has requested CVE ID CVE-2023-46647 for this vulnerability, which was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty program.

  • HIGH: A path traversal vulnerability was identified in GitHub Enterprise Server that allowed arbitrary file reading when building a GitHub Pages site. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would need permission to create and build a GitHub Pages site on the GitHub Enterprise Server instance. This vulnerability was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty program and assigned CVE-2023-46645.

  • MEDIUM: An insertion of sensitive information into log file vulnerability was identified in the log files for a GitHub Enterprise Server backend service that could permit an adversary in the middle attack when combined with other phishing techniques. To exploit this, an attacker would need access to the log files for the GitHub Enterprise Server instance, a backup archive created with GitHub Enterprise Server Backup Utilities, or a service which received streamed logs. GitHub has requested CVE ID CVE-2023-6746 for this vulnerability.

  • MEDIUM: Due to an insufficient entropy vulnerability, an attacker could brute force a user invitation to the Management Console. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would have needed knowledge that a user invitation was pending. This vulnerability was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty program and assigned CVE-2023-46648.

  • MEDIUM: An attacker could maintain admin access via a race condition when an organization was converted from a user. GitHub has requested CVE ID CVE-2023-46649 for this vulnerability, which was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty program.

  • MEDIUM: Due to an improper access control, an attacker could view private repository names by enumerating check run IDs with the "Get a check run" API endpoint. This vulnerability did not allow unauthorized access to any repository content other than the name. GitHub has requested CVE ID CVE-2023-46646 for this vulnerability, which was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty program.

  • MEDIUM: An attacker could maintain admin access to a transferred repository in a race condition by making a GraphQL mutation to alter repository permissions during the transfer. GitHub has requested CVE ID CVE-2023-6690 for this vulnerability, which reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty program.

  • MEDIUM: An insertion of sensitive information into log file in the audit log in GitHub Enterprise Server was identified that that could allow an attacker to gain access to the Management Console. To exploit this, an attacker would need access to the log files for the GitHub Enterprise Server instance, a backup archive created with GitHub Enterprise Server Backup Utilities, or a service which received streamed logs. GitHub has requested CVE ID CVE-2023-6802 for this vulnerability.

  • MEDIUM: A race condition in GitHub Enterprise Server allowed an outside collaborator to be added while a repository is being transferred. GitHub has requested CVE ID CVE-2023-6803 for this vulnerability, which was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty program.

  • MEDIUM: Improper privilege management allowed arbitrary workflows to be committed and run using an improperly scoped personal access token. To exploit this, a workflow must have already existed in the target repository. GitHub has requested CVE ID CVE-2023-6804 for this vulnerability, which was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty program.

  • MEDIUM: An incorrect authorization vulnerability was identified that allowed issue comments to be updated with an improperly scoped token. This vulnerability did not allow unauthorized access to any repository content as it also required contents.write and issues.read permissions. This vulnerability was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty Program and has been assigned CVE-2023-51379.

  • MEDIUM: An incorrect authorization vulnerability was identified that allowed issue comments to be read with an improperly scoped token. This vulnerability was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty Program and has been assigned CVE-2023-51380.

  • LOW: Pre-receive hooks have been further hardened against shell command injections.

  • LOW: To render interactive maps in an instance's web UI using Azure Maps, GitHub Enterprise Server has migrated from use of an unsecure Azure Maps API token to a more secure access token provided by role-based access control (RBAC) in Entra ID. After upgrading to this release, to re-enable interactive maps, an administrator must reconfigure authentication to Azure Maps in the Management Console. For more information, see "Configuración de mapas interactivos."

  • To address scenarios that could lead to denial of service, HAProxy has been upgraded to version 2.8.4.

  • Packages have been updated to the latest security versions.

3.10.4: Bug fixes

  • In rare cases, on an instance with GitHub Actions enabled, a failed check on a deleted repository could cause upgrades to a new version of GitHub Enterprise Server to fail.

  • On an instance in a high availability configuration, site administrators using the ghe-repl-status command-line utility may have seen a status of UNKNOWN for the MSSQL service.

  • When an administrator ran the ghe-support-bundle or ghe-cluster-support-bundle command, the -p flag did not produce bundles with log durations as specified. The duration period can now only be specified in days. Additionally, unnecessary files were sanitized by the commands.

  • On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled, some maintenance tasks could fail due to incomplete upgrade steps during previous upgrades to new releases of GitHub Enterprise Server.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration, site administrators using the ghe-config-apply utility may have seen the extraneous message "Error: Server closed the connection" in the logs for the utility.

  • Some OAuth applications did not have device code flow (DCF) explicitly enabled, which prevented DCF from running correctly.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration, upgrades could fail due to a background job running during database migration.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license and secret scanning enabled, site administrators using the ghe-secret-scanning command would not see a relevant error message if their input was invalid.

  • On an instance in a high availability configuration, the ghe-repl-teardown command failed when provided with a UUID.

  • Support for authenticating to GitHub Enterprise Server from Visual Studio Code with a device code was unintentionally disabled.

  • In some environments, stale .backup log files could accumulate in the system.

  • On an instance hosted on AWS, when configuring GitHub Packages, virtual-hosted-style AWS S3 URLs would default to path-style URLs if a region-code was included. For more information, see Virtual hosting of buckets in the AWS documentation.

  • In some cases, when an administrator uploaded a custom TLS certificate, the certificate was not correctly installed on the instance.

  • Because the | character was not permitted, administrators could not add an SMTP username to authenticate with the Azure Communication Service.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license, users with the security manager role could not update custom links for push protection using the REST API.

  • On an instance with the dependency graph enabled, some security products were not automatically enabled for new public repositories.

  • Pull request review threads at the file level, rather than the individual line level, were not included in exports from ghe-migrator or the Organization Migrations API.

  • Some responses from the REST API included an incorrect URL in the link header.

  • After importing a migration archive using ghe-migrator or REST API endpoints for organization migrations, in some cases, some review comments within pull requests were not associated with lines of code.

  • In some cases, /stafftools/users/:login incorrectly displayed trade screening information.

  • Deprecated resource_activity jobs were not processed and accumulated over time in the queue, causing possible memory issues.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license and secret scanning enabled, secret scanning alert emails were sent to organization owners even if their email address did not comply with domain restrictions.

  • After a user started a repository transfer, if another user viewed the repository before the transfer finished, the repository overview rendered incorrectly.

  • On an instance with GitHub Connect and unified search enabled, users trying to view the unified search code results would get a 500 error.

  • On some instances, the user interface displayed a codespace button, even though GitHub Codespaces is not supported on GitHub Enterprise Server.

  • On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled, users occasionally got a 500 error when viewing a job with a pending deployment.

  • On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled, an issue with GH_TOKEN sometimes prevented GitHub Pages sites from building successfully in workflows.

  • An administrator could enable GitHub Connect on an instance with a license that does not support GitHub Connect.

  • On an instance with GitHub Connect enabled, some system users were incorrectly counted as consuming a license following license sync.

  • The enterprise account pages on some installations rendered very slowly.

  • A user in the process of being converted into an organization could be added as a collaborator on a repository. This resulted in the new organizations owners unexpectedly receiving access to the repository.

  • When using ghe-migrator to import repositories into GitHub Enterprise Server, the conflicts and audit subcommands produced an invalid CSV file due to an extra log line appended to the file.

  • Pre-receive hook failures were not visible in the administrator audit log.

  • Running ghe-spokesctl gov info without any arguments caused a panic response.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license and secret scanning enabled, dry runs sometimes incorrectly reported no results for custom patterns.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license and secret scanning enabled, webhooks for alert locations did not contain information about push protection bypasses.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license, code scanning would report an incorrect number of files scanned on the "Tools" status page.

3.10.4: Changes

  • On an instance with Dependabot updates enabled, Dependabot relies on the node installation provided by the actions runner instead of dynamically downloading.

  • When adding a node to an instance, performance is improved during initial database replication.

  • An administrator can run the new ghe-check-background-upgrade-jobs command to ensure all upgrade jobs that run in the background have finished. This allows the administrator to know when they can start the next upgrade to their GitHub Enterprise Server instance.

  • To avoid negative effects on disk utilization, babeld log files have a maximum size of 15 GB.

  • To improve reliability of release uploads in low-bandwidth environments, the time-to-live (TTL) value of the token for uploading release assets has increased from 1 hour to 3 hours.

  • When using ghe-migrator prepare to import an archive, a missing schema.json file results in an UnsupportedArchive error rather than an UnsupportedSchemaVersion error.

  • The audit log now tracks all failed password attempts individually. Previously, duplicate failed password attempts in sequence within the same day would be grouped into one failed password attempt, with a count field.

3.10.4: Known issues

  • Custom firewall rules are removed during the upgrade process.

  • The GitHub Packages npm registry no longer returns a time value in metadata responses. This was done to allow for substantial performance improvements. We continue to have all the data necessary to return a time value as part of the metadata response and will resume returning this value in the future once we have solved the existing performance issues.

  • During the validation phase of a configuration run, a No such object error may occur for the Notebook and Viewscreen services. This error can be ignored as the services should still correctly start.

  • If the root site administrator is locked out of the Management Console after failed login attempts, the account does not unlock automatically after the defined lockout time. Someone with administrative SSH access to the instance must unlock the account using the administrative shell. For more information, see "Solución de problemas de acceso a la Consola de administración."

  • If an instance is configured to forward logs to a target server with TLS enabled, certificate authority (CA) bundles that a site administrator uploads using ghe-ssl-ca-certificate-install are not respected, and connections to the server fail.

  • Redundant messages may cause an increase in the volume of events logged in /var/log/syslog. [Updated: 2024-03-08]

3.10.4: Deprecations

  • Interactive maps in the web UI no longer allow authentication using an Azure Maps API key

    • To allow users to render interactive maps in an instance's web UI by writing GeoJSON or TopoJSON syntax, GitHub Enterprise Server previously required a potentially unsecure API key for authentication with Azure Maps. If an administrator previously enabled interactive maps on an instance, the feature is disabled upon upgrade to this release.

      To re-enable interactive maps for your instance, you must configure an application on an Entra ID tenant that has access to Azure Maps using role-based access control (RBAC). For more information, see "Configuración de mapas interactivos" and the security fixes for this release.

3.10.3: Security fixes

  • LOW: Due to an incorrect permission assignment for some configuration files, an attacker with access to a local operating system user account could read MySQL connection details including the MySQL password. [Updated: 2023-11-13]

  • Packages have been updated to the latest security versions.

3.10.3: Bug fixes

  • Authentication of programmatic access tokens did not fully validate the status of token's users, which allowed token authentication requests to succeed even if the associated user was not allowed to make such requests. This issue is unrelated to validation of token scope.

  • The dependency-graph-api service sometimes rapidly filled logs with a large amount of Base64-encoded response data, particularly during upgrades.

  • After an administrator made changes to maintenance mode from the instance's Management Console UI using Firefox, the administrator was redirected to the Settings page, but their changes were not enabled.

  • The ghe-cluster-repl-status command did not display all replication statuses.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration with high availability enabled, ghe-config-apply timed out while waiting for hookshot-go to start on replica application nodes.

  • /var/log/lastlog was not copied over as a sparse file during ghe-upgrade, which could cause issues by using additional disk space.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration, when managing maintenance mode using ghe-cluster-maintenance, an erroneous warning appeared that read "Warning: Maintenance mode set on primary, please make sure to set it on any active replica if needed".

  • ghe-repl-status did not identify Git replicas in certain incomplete states and incorrectly suggested that a failover could be performed safely. In some cases, this led to data loss during failover.

  • Repository exports using ghe-migrator or the REST API's operation for organization migrations could fail when a large number of commit comments or long commit comments were present.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license and secret scanning enabled, secret scanning suggested incorrect filters when viewing both open and closed alerts.

  • On instances using the private beta of SCIM provisioning, some users were presented with a "single sign-in" hover card.

  • On an instance with multiple nodes, ghe-spokes status did not identify Git replicas in certain incomplete states, causing a false report that replication was in sync and leading to data loss or replication issues during failover.

  • On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled, administrators received a 500 error after attempting to force cancel a workflow run via Staff Tools.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license, repositories within organizations created using the + dropdown menu did not have GitHub Advanced Security features enabled automatically, even if the features should have been enabled.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license and secret scanning enabled, dry runs sometimes incorrectly reported no results for custom patterns.

3.10.3: Changes

  • Instructions in the "Migrations" section of the Management Console clarify that only standard AWS S3 endpoints are supported when configuring AWS S3 as a blob storage provider for migrations.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration, administrators can identify the repository networks or gists that are common across a specified set of storage nodes using the spokesctl find-on-replicas command.

  • As a security measure, GitHub Pages does not build sites that contain symbolic links except when using custom GitHub Actions workflows. This change strengthens GitHub Pages's symbolic link detection.

3.10.3: Known issues

  • In GitHub Enterprise Server 3.10 and later, the requirements for TLS security levels have changed due to an upgrade to containers in the underlying OS. On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled and a custom TLS certificate, users may experience disruptions with workflow runs if the TLS certificate uses weak encryption.

  • Custom firewall rules are removed during the upgrade process.

  • During the validation phase of a configuration run, a No such object error may occur for the Notebook and Viewscreen services. This error can be ignored as the services should still correctly start.

  • If the root site administrator is locked out of the Management Console after failed login attempts, the account does not unlock automatically after the defined lockout time. Someone with administrative SSH access to the instance must unlock the account using the administrative shell. For more information, see "Solución de problemas de acceso a la Consola de administración."

  • On an instance in a high-availability configuration, passive replica nodes accept Git client requests and forward the requests to the primary node.

  • If an instance is configured to forward logs to a target server with TLS enabled, certificate authority (CA) bundles that a site administrator uploads using ghe-ssl-ca-certificate-install are not respected, and connections to the server fail.

  • When running ghe-config-apply, the process may stall with the message Deployment is running pending automatic promotion.

  • The mbind: Operation not permitted error in the /var/log/mysql/mysql.err file can be ignored. MySQL 8 does not gracefully handle when the CAP_SYS_NICE capability isn't required, and outputs an error instead of a warning.

  • After an administrator upgrades from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.7 or 3.8, to 3.9 or 3.10, MySQL may not start back up. For more information, see "Problemas conocidos con las actualizaciones de la instancia." [Updated: 2023-08-11]

  • After an administrator upgrades from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.7 or 3.8 to 3.9 or 3.10, I/O utilization will increase, and in some cases the instance's performance will be impacted. Reduced performance is due to the database server being upgraded from MySQL 5.7 to MySQL 8.0. For more information, see "Problemas conocidos con las actualizaciones de la instancia."

  • In rare circumstances, a small instance with both high availability and GitHub Actions configured may report that MSSQL replication is unhealthy after many upgrades with full upgrade packages. If you encounter this issue, contact GitHub Support.

  • After an administrator enables maintenance mode from the instance's Management Console UI using Firefox, the administrator is redirected to the Settings page, but maintenance mode is not enabled. To work around this issue, use a different browser.

  • When an administrator uses the -p flag with the ghe-support-bundle utility to collect data for a specific number of hours, the utility erroneously collects more logs than necessary.

  • Jobs in a deprecated queue are not processed and may accumulate over time. These jobs are reflected in the monitor dashboard's "Aqueduct queue depth" graph as an increase in resource_activity. In some cases, a buildup of unprocessed jobs can result in memory exhaustion. If you observe memory exhaustion on your instance and see a high metric for resource_activity, contact GitHub Support. [Updated: 2023-10-26]

  • On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled, after an upgrade from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.8 or earlier, an internal exception could prevent successful completion of some operations, like upgrades or the configuration of new replica nodes for high availability.

Warning: A change to MySQL in GitHub Enterprise Server 3.9 and later may impact the performance of your instance. Before you upgrade, make sure you've read the "Known issues" section of these release notes.

3.10.2: Bug fixes

  • On an instance in a high-availability, geo-replication, or repository cache configuration, prolonged replication issues could occur on replica nodes due to failure of SpokesRepairRepoReplicaJob and SpokesSyncCacheReplicaJob jobs.

3.10.2: Known issues

  • In GitHub Enterprise Server 3.10 and later, the requirements for TLS security levels have changed due to an upgrade to containers in the underlying OS. On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled and a custom TLS certificate, users may experience disruptions with workflow runs if the TLS certificate uses weak encryption. Workflow runs will not trigger, and the following error message will appear in system logs for babeld.

    CA certificate key too weak
    

    To resolve this issue, confirm that your certificate complies with level 2 of the OpenSSL security specification. For more information, see SSL_CTX_set_security_level in the OpenSSL docs. For more information about reviewing your instance's logs, see "Acerca de los registros del sistema".

    If the error appears in babeld logs because your TLS certificate does not comply with level 2 of the specification, you must create and upload a new certificate with stronger security before you upgrade to GitHub Enterprise Server 3.10 or later. For more information, see "Configurar TLS." [Updated: 2023-10-26]

  • Custom firewall rules are removed during the upgrade process.

  • During the validation phase of a configuration run, a No such object error may occur for the Notebook and Viewscreen services. This error can be ignored as the services should still correctly start.

  • If the root site administrator is locked out of the Management Console after failed login attempts, the account does not unlock automatically after the defined lockout time. Someone with administrative SSH access to the instance must unlock the account using the administrative shell. For more information, see "Troubleshooting access to the Management Console." [Updated: 2023-02-23]

  • On an instance in a high-availability configuration, passive replica nodes accept Git client requests and forward the requests to the primary node.

  • If an instance is configured to forward logs to a target server with TLS enabled, certificate authority (CA) bundles that a site administrator uploads using ghe-ssl-ca-certificate-install are not respected, and connections to the server fail.

  • When running ghe-config-apply, the process may stall with the message Deployment is running pending automatic promotion.

  • The mbind: Operation not permitted error in the /var/log/mysql/mysql.err file can be ignored. MySQL 8 does not gracefully handle when the CAP_SYS_NICE capability isn't required, and outputs an error instead of a warning.

  • After an administrator upgrades from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.7 or 3.8, to 3.9 or 3.10, MySQL may not start back up. For more information, see "Problemas conocidos con las actualizaciones de la instancia." [Updated: 2023-08-11]

  • After an administrator upgrades from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.7 or 3.8 to 3.9 or 3.10, I/O utilization will increase, and in some cases the instance's performance will be impacted. Reduced performance is due to the database server being upgraded from MySQL 5.7 to MySQL 8.0. For more information, see "Problemas conocidos con las actualizaciones de la instancia."

  • In rare circumstances, a small instance with both high availability and GitHub Actions configured may report that MSSQL replication is unhealthy after many upgrades with full upgrade packages. If you encounter this issue, contact GitHub Support.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration with high availability configured, ghe-config-apply times out while waiting for hookshot-go to start on replica application nodes.

  • After an administrator enables maintenance mode from the instance's Management Console UI using Firefox, the administrator is redirected to the Settings page, but maintenance mode is not enabled. To work around this issue, use a different browser.

  • When an administrator uses the -p flag with the ghe-support-bundle utility to collect data for a specific number of hours, the utility erroneously collects more logs than necessary. [Updated: 2023-10-13]

  • The settings for enabling scheduled reminders were added unintentionally to this release. Scheduled reminders are not officially supported. [Updated: 2023-10-17]

  • Jobs in a deprecated queue are not processed and may accumulate over time. These jobs are reflected in the monitor dashboard's "Aqueduct queue depth" graph as an increase in resource_activity. In some cases, a buildup of unprocessed jobs can result in memory exhaustion. If you observe memory exhaustion on your instance and see a high metric for resource_activity, contact GitHub Support. [Updated: 2023-10-26]

  • On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled, after an upgrade from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.8 or earlier, an internal exception could prevent successful completion of some operations, like upgrades or the configuration of new replica nodes for high availability. If this issue occurs, administrators may see the following error in /data/user/common/ghe-config.log.

3.10.1: Security fixes

  • HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) is enabled within the Management Console.

  • Packages have been updated to the latest security versions.

  • LOW: An incorrect comparison vulnerability was identified in GitHub Enterprise Server that allowed commit smuggling by displaying an incorrect diff in a reopened pull request. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would need write access to the repository. This vulnerability was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty program and was assigned CVE-2023-23766. [Updated: 2023-09-22]

3.10.1: Bug fixes

  • On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled, scale sets configured at the enterprise level did not appear for use within the instance's organizations or repositories.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license and secret scanning enabled, secret scanning alerts could fail to show an error message in the UI when a failure occurred closing or reopening the alert.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license and secret scanning enabled, and when using Safari, changing additional match requirements for a custom pattern did not retrigger custom pattern evaluation against a user submitted test string.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license and secret scanning enabled, organization access for a leaked GitHub tokens was not shown to commit authors when viewing the alert.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license and secret scanning enabled, when token location(s) included a commit that introduced a large change, the page for viewing the alert would load slowly.

  • When uploading migration archives to blob storage, the GitHub Enterprise Server instance's outbound web proxy server was not used.

  • On an enterprise with the policy setting that disallows repository admins from enabling/disabling secret scanning, transferring a repository to a new organization that automatically enabled secret scanning wouldn't result in the transferred repository being automatically enabled for secret scanning.

  • When migrating a repository from a GitHub Enterprise Server instance to another location, the ghe-migrator target_url command allows you to record the repository's new location. The new URL is displayed when you visit the main page of the repository in the web interface.

  • On an instance with subdomain isolation disabled, a notebook could not be loaded due to incorrect asset paths.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license and secret scanning enabled, in some cases, custom patterns would erroneously show no results for a dry run.

3.10.1: Changes

  • When GitHub Enterprise checks for a new upgrade or hotpatch package, if the check fails the failure details are output to the ghe-update-check log, and the Management Console UI provides a "Check Again" button to rerun the check.

  • When providing data to GitHub Support, GitHub Enterprise Server displays a notice describing how support data is used before uploading the support files.

3.10.1: Known issues

  • In GitHub Enterprise Server 3.10 and later, the requirements for TLS security levels have changed due to an upgrade to containers in the underlying OS. On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled and a custom TLS certificate, users may experience disruptions with workflow runs if the TLS certificate uses weak encryption.

  • On an instance with a high-availability, geo-replication, or repository cache configuration, a known issue causes the SpokesRepairRepoReplicaJob and SpokesSyncCacheReplicaJob jobs to fail. This means repository replicas in cache servers are not updated, and will remain out of sync if the repository is updated. Additionally, if a regular repository replica becomes out of sync, repair attempts will fail, causing the corresponding repository network to be marked as failed until a network repair is triggered.

    The network repair will eventually return the repository to a healthy state. However, this process can take several hours for very large and active repositories or networks, potentially leading to prolonged replication issues. [Updated: 2023-09-26]

    • In a table layout, users can select and update multiple cells at once by clicking and dragging or using the Shift or Ctrl/Command key.

  • Commits

    • When editing a file in the user interface, users with permission to bypass branch protection rules receive a note if their commit will bypass a rule, with the option to create a new branch instead of committing directly to the protected branch. Previously, the commit was added to the protected branch directly, without indication that a rule was being bypassed.

    • When using git push from the command line, users with permission to bypass branch protection rules receive a note if they have pushed a commit that bypasses a rule. Previously there was no indication after a Git push that branch rules had been bypassed.

  • Markdown

    • Users can include mathematical expressions within Markdown by using LaTeX syntax delimited by $ characters and backticks. For more information, see "Escritura de expresiones matemáticas."

  • Accessibility

    • To make GitHub inclusive to all developers, GitHub has improved color contrast of the default light and dark themes, making them accessible to all users. These changes were made to Primer, GitHub's Design System. For more information, see GitHub Accessibility.

3.10.0: Changes

  • Field names and destinations for some service logs on GitHub Enterprise Server have changed in this release and the prior release. If any tooling or processes in your environment rely on specific field names within logs, or log entries in specific files, the following changes may affect you.

    • level is now SeverityText.
    • log_message, msg, or message is now Body.
    • now is now Timestamp.
    • Custom field names such as gh.repo.id or graphql.operation.name use semantic names.
    • Log statements that the instance would previously write to auth.log, ldap.log, or ldap-sync.log now appear in containerized logs for github-unicorn if the statement originated from a web request, or in logs for github-resqued if the statement originated from a background job. For more information about containerized logs, see "Acerca de los registros del sistema."

    For a full list of field mappings, download the OpenTelemetry attribute mapping CSV for GitHub Enterprise Server 3.9 and the OpenTelemetry attribute mapping CSV for GitHub Enterprise Server 3.10. This change is part of GitHub's gradual migration to internal semantic conventions for OpenTelemetry, and additional field names will change in upcoming releases.

  • Users who use pull requests with protected branches may be affected by the following security measures.

    • Merge commits created locally and pushed to a protected branch are rejected if the contents of the commit differ from the merge commit predicted by GitHub.
    • If the branch protection rule for dismissing stale reviews is active, an approving review is dismissed if the merge base changes after the review was submitted. The merge base is the commit that is the latest common ancestor of the pull request branch and the protected branch.
    • A pull request approval only counts towards the pull request it was submitted for. Previously, approvals were gathered across multiple independent pull requests if the pull request branches pointed to the same commit and targeted the same base branch.
  • The PUT and DELETE operations on the /installations/{installation_id}/repositories/{repository_id} endpoint are no longer functional for the management of GitHub App installations. You can add or remove a repository from an app installation using the documented APIs instead. For more information, see "Puntos de conexión de la API de REST para instalaciones de GitHub Apps."

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license, to make it easier to assess vulnerabilities to exposed secrets, enterprise owners and organization owners receive a single email with the results of the historical scan for secrets that is performed when secret scanning is first enabled in an organization or enterprise. Previously, secret scanning sent an email for each repository where secrets were detected. For more information, see "Acerca del examen de secretos."

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license, in the "Files changed" view of pull requests, GitHub only displays code scanning alerts for vulnerabilities detected in lines that a pull request has changed. Previously, code scanning displayed all alerts unique to the pull request branch, even if they were unrelated to the changes the pull request introduced.

3.10.0: Backups

  • To generate backups of an instance more quickly, in GitHub Enterprise Server Backup Utilities 3.10.0 and later, the job for pruning snapshots is no longer performed as part of the ghe-backup tool. Site administrators can prune snapshots manually or on a schedule by running the ghe-prune-snapshots job. For more information, see Scheduling backups in the github/backup-utils repository.

  • To reduce the data transfer required to regularly back up an instance, GitHub Enterprise Server Backup Utilities 3.10.0 and later allows administrators to perform incremental backups of a MySQL 8 database. For more information, see Making a Differential or Incremental Backup in the MySQL documentation.

3.10.0: Known issues

  • After an administrator upgrades from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.7 or 3.8 to 3.9 or 3.10, I/O utilization will increase, and in some cases the instance's performance will be impacted. Reduced performance is due to the database server being upgraded from MySQL 5.7 to MySQL 8.0. For more information, see "Problemas conocidos con las actualizaciones de la instancia."

  • After an administrator upgrades from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.7 or 3.8, to 3.9 or 3.10, MySQL may not start back up. For more information, see "Problemas conocidos con las actualizaciones de la instancia." [Updated: 2023-08-11]

  • In GitHub Enterprise Server 3.10 and later, the requirements for TLS security levels have changed due to an upgrade to containers in the underlying OS. On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled and a custom TLS certificate, users may experience disruptions with workflow runs if the TLS certificate uses weak encryption. Workflow runs will not trigger, and the following error message will appear in system logs for babeld.

    CA certificate key too weak
    

    To resolve this issue, confirm that your certificate complies with level 2 of the OpenSSL security specification. For more information, see SSL_CTX_set_security_level in the OpenSSL docs. For more information about reviewing your instance's logs, see "Acerca de los registros del sistema".

    If the error appears in babeld logs because your TLS certificate does not comply with level 2 of the specification, you must create and upload a new certificate with stronger security before you upgrade to GitHub Enterprise Server 3.10 or later. For more information, see "Configurar TLS." [Updated: 2023-10-26]

  • When enabling CodeQL via default setup at scale, some checks related to GitHub Actions are omitted, potentially preventing the process from completing.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration, after you upgrade nodes other than the primary MySQL node and before you upgrade the primary MySQL node, the following output may appear multiple times after you run ghe-config-apply.

    Error response from daemon: conflict: unable to delete IMAGE_ID (cannot be forced) - image is being used by running container CONTAINER_ID
    

    You can safely ignore this message.

  • Custom firewall rules are removed during the upgrade process.

  • On an instance in a high-availability configuration, passive replica nodes accept Git client requests and forward the requests to the primary node.

  • The mbind: Operation not permitted error in the /var/log/mysql/mysql.err file can be ignored. MySQL 8 does not gracefully handle when the CAP_SYS_NICE capability isn't required, and outputs an error instead of a warning.

  • When using an outbound web proxy server, the ghe-btop command may fail in some circumstances with the error "Error querying allocation: Unexpected response code: 401".

  • If an instance is configured to forward logs to a target server with TLS enabled, certificate authority (CA) bundles that a site administrator uploads using ghe-ssl-ca-certificate-install are not respected, and connections to the server fail.

  • When running ghe-config-apply, the process may stall with the message Deployment is running pending automatic promotion.

  • During the validation phase of a configuration run, a No such object error may occur for the Notebook and Viewscreen services. This error can be ignored as the services should still correctly start.

  • If the root site administrator is locked out of the Management Console after failed login attempts, the account will not unlock automatically after the defined lockout time. Someone with administrative SSH access to the instance must unlock the account using the administrative shell. For more information, see "Solución de problemas de acceso a la Consola de administración."

  • In rare circumstances, a small instance with both high availability and GitHub Actions configured may report that MSSQL replication is unhealthy after many upgrades with full upgrade packages. If you encounter this issue, contact GitHub Support. [Updated: 2023-09-04]

  • After an administrator enables maintenance mode from the instance's Management Console UI using Firefox, the administrator is redirected to the Settings page, but maintenance mode is not enabled. To work around this issue, use a different browser. [Updated: 2023-09-19]

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration with high availability configured, ghe-config-apply times out while waiting for hookshot-go to start on replica application nodes. [Updated: 2023-09-21]

  • On an instance with a high-availability, geo-replication, or repository cache configuration, a known issue causes the SpokesRepairRepoReplicaJob and SpokesSyncCacheReplicaJob jobs to fail. This means repository replicas in cache servers are not updated, and will remain out of sync if the repository is updated. Additionally, if a regular repository replica becomes out of sync, repair attempts will fail, causing the corresponding repository network to be marked as failed until a network repair is triggered.

    The network repair will eventually return the repository to a healthy state. However, this process can take several hours for very large and active repositories or networks, potentially leading to prolonged replication issues. [Updated: 2023-09-26]

  • When an administrator uses the -p flag with the ghe-support-bundle utility to collect data for a specific number of hours, the utility erroneously collects more logs than necessary. [Updated: 2023-10-13]

  • The settings for enabling scheduled reminders were added unintentionally to this release. Scheduled reminders are not officially supported. [Updated: 2023-10-17]

  • Jobs in a deprecated queue are not processed and may accumulate over time. These jobs are reflected in the monitor dashboard's "Aqueduct queue depth" graph as an increase in resource_activity. In some cases, a buildup of unprocessed jobs can result in memory exhaustion. If you observe memory exhaustion on your instance and see a high metric for resource_activity, contact GitHub Support. [Updated: 2023-10-26]

  • On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled, after an upgrade from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.8 or earlier, an internal exception could prevent successful completion of some operations, like upgrades or the configuration of new replica nodes for high availability. If this issue occurs, administrators may see the following error in /data/user/common/ghe-config.log.

    Error occurred while executing servicing step 'Clone datatier login to secondary replica' for component CopyAvailabilityGroupSqlLogins during CopyAvailabilityGroupSqlLogins: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
    

    To resolve this issue, upgrade to the latest patch release of GitHub Enterprise Server. [Updated: 2023-12-04]

  • In some situations, large .adoc files stored in a repository do not render properly in the web UI. The raw contents are still available to view as plaintext. [Updated: 2023-10-31]

  • On an instance hosted in AWS, system time may lose synchronization with Amazon's servers after an administrator reboots the instance. [Updated 2023-11-10]

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration, restoration of a backup using ghe-restore will exit prematurely if Redis has not restarted properly. [Updated 2023-12-05]

  • On an instance with the HTTP X-Forwarded-For header configured for use behind a load balancer, all client IP addresses in the instance's audit log erroneously appear as 127.0.0.1. [Updated 2023-12-13]

  • During periods of high traffic, interruptions in service may occur due to insufficient resource allocations for internal components. [Updated 2024-01-23]

  • Redundant messages may cause an increase in the volume of events logged in /var/log/syslog. [Updated: 2024-03-08]
