    • Insecure default configuration affects installations where REDASH_COOKIE_SECRET is not set explicitly (CVE-2021-41192)
    • SSRF vulnerability affects installations that enabled URL-loading data sources (CVE-2021-43780)
    • Incorrect usage of state parameter in OAuth client code affects installations where Google Login is enabled (CVE-2021-43777)

    πŸ”€ And a couple features that didn't merge in time for 10.0.0

    • πŸ†• New Data Source: CSV/Excel Files
    • πŸ›  Fix: Edit Source button disappeared for users without CanEdit permissions
    • πŸ— We pinned our docker base image to Python3.7-slim-buster to avoid build issues

  • v10.0.0-beta Changes

    June 16, 2021

    πŸš€ Just over a year since our last release, the V10 beta is ready. Since we never made a non-beta release of V9, we expect many users will upgrade directly from V8 -> V10. This will bring a lot of exciting features. Please check out the V9 beta release notes below to learn more.

    πŸ›  This V10 beta incorporates fixes for the feedback we received on the V9 beta along with a few long-requested features (horizontal bar charts!) and other changes to improve UX and reliability.

    πŸš€ This release was made possible by contributions from 35+ people (the Github API didn't let us pull handles this time around): Alex Kovar, Alexander Rusanov, Arik Fraimovich, Ben Amor, Christopher Grant, Đặng Minh DΕ©ng, Daniel Lang, deecay, Elad Ossadon, Gabriel Dutra, iwakiriK, Jannis Leidel, Jerry, Jesse Whitehouse, Jiajie Zhong, Jim Sparkman, Jonathan Hult, Josh Bohde, Justin Talbot, koooge, Lei Ni, Levko Kravets, Lingkai Kong, max-voronov, Mike Nason, Nolan Nichols, Omer Lachish, Patrick Yang, peterlee, Rafael Wendel, Sebastian Tramp, simonschneider-db, Tim Gates, Tobias Macey, Vipul Mathur, and Vladislav Denisov

    Our special thanks to Sohail Ahmed for reporting a vulnerability in our "forgot password" page (#5425)

    ⬆️ Upgrading

    πŸš€ (This section is duplicated from the previous release - since many users will upgrade directly from V8 -> V10)

    ⬆️ Typically, if you are running your own instance of Redash and wish to upgrade, you would simply modify the Docker tag in your docker-compose.yml file. Since RQ has replaced Celery in this version, there are a couple extra modifications that need to be done in your docker-compose.yml:

    ⏱ 1. Under services/scheduler/environment, omit QUEUES and WORKERS_COUNT (and omit environment altogether if it is empty). πŸ‘· 2. Under services, add a new service for general RQ jobs:

      <<: *redash-service
      command: worker
        QUEUES: "periodic emails default"
        WORKERS_COUNT: 1

    πŸ— Following that, force a recreation of your containers with docker-compose up --force-recreate --build and you should be good to go.

    While this version is already running on the hosted platform to make sure it's stable, we're excited to put this in the hands of our Open Source users.

    πŸš€ Starting from this release we will no longer build a tarball distribution of the codebase and recommend everyone to switch over to using our Docker images. We're planning on dropping Python 2 support towards its EOL this year and switching over to the Docker image will make this transition much simpler.

  • v7.0.0 Changes

    March 25, 2019

    πŸš€ We're trying a new format for the CHANGELOG in this release. Focusing on the bigger changes, but for whoever interested, you can see all the changes here.

    πŸ‘€ Besides all the features, bug fixes and improvements listed below we managed to convert a large portion of Redash's frontend code from Angular.js to React. You can see status in #3071.

    πŸš€ This release was made possible with the help of 34 contributors. πŸ™‡β€β™‚οΈ

    Data Sources

    • All data source options are now encrypted in the database. By default the encryption uses the REDASH_COOKIE_SECRET value (redash.settings.COOKIE_SECRET), but you can specify a different value by setting the REDASH_SECRET_KEY environment variable value. Note that you need to set this before doing the upgrade.
    • πŸ†• New Data Sources: Uptycs and Apache Drill.
    • 0️⃣ Snowplow: is now enabled by default & supports region setting.
    • πŸ‘ Elasticsearch: add support for Amazon Elasticsearch IAM authentication (with IAM profile or key/secret pair).
    • πŸ‘ PostgreSQL: add support for serializing range values.
    • 🚚 Redshift: remove duplicate column information for late-binding views.
    • Athena: load all databases (using pagination).
    • BigQuery: correctly handle temp tables with no schema field.
    • πŸ‘ Jira (JQL): support for fetching all records with pagination.
    • πŸ‘ Prometheus: fix schema loading and add support for query range.

    In-app Help

    You can now open the Knowledge Base inside the application. We also added a few "help triggers" in the app, that will open the Knowledge Base in context of what you're currently doing.


    • Dashboard Parameters: We improved the flow of adding queries with parameters to dashboards and now give you full control over how parameters are mapped. You no longer have to make sure all parameters have the same name or use theΒ GlobalΒ checkbox. We also added new options, like keeping the parameter local to the widget or setting a static value. Read more in our Knowledge Base β†’
    • We added server side validation of parameter values for all parameter types, except for parameters of text type. All validated parameter types are considered safe. When a query is using safe parameters (or no parameters at all), View Only users can refresh it.
    • Refreshing safe queries is done using the new results API endpoint, which takes only a query ID (and optionally parameter values) and does not need the query text.

    Query Editor Improvements

    • βœ… Run only the highlighted query text: hit Execute after highlighting a portion of your query and only the selected portion will be sent to the database. This is useful for testing sub-SELECT statements and CTE's.
    • πŸ‘Œ Improved auto complete:Β add a dot . after a table name in the query editor and auto complete will only suggest columns on that table.
    • πŸ”§ Autosave parameter configuration changes.
    • πŸ‘ YAML syntax support (for data sources like Yandex Metrica).

    πŸ‘Œ Improved Query Scheduler

    ⏱ The Query Scheduler got a face lift and some new options: you can pick a day for a weekly schedule to run on and also set an end date after which the query will no longer execute on schedule.

    Data Sources

    πŸ›  We added Apache Drill, Uptycs and a new JSON data source. Also fixed a few bugs in Athena's query runner and others.

    πŸ‘‰ User Management

    The users page got revamped with a new look and feel and few new features:

    • An indication when a user was last active.
    • πŸ‘‰ Show if an invited user hasn't finished the setup process yet (Pending Invitations section).
    • You can now generate a new API key for users, if there's a concern it was compromised.


    • πŸ†• New Celery queues status screens, replacing the old Queries Status and better reflecting the status of running queries.
    • πŸ”§ Make the queue name for schema refresh job configurable. The default used to be hard coded schemas, which is not available on all setups. Now it's celery.
    • 0️⃣ The gevent library is installed by default, and you can now setup gunicorn to use gevent based workers.
    • πŸ†• New Docker entrypoint command to do a health check for a worker process.
    • πŸ‘ Flask-Admin is no longer setup or supported.

    Other Changes

    • πŸ†• New Alert destination: Google Hangouts Chat.
    • When downloading results from the results API it will set a user friendly filename for the downloaded file.
    • Archived Queries section added to the queries list.

    πŸ› Bug Fixes

    • πŸ›  Fixed: fork query does not fork tables but instead adds default table.
    • πŸ›  Fixed: when deleting a visualization, any widget using it was left empty on the dashboard.
    • πŸ›  Fixed: issues with Query Editor resizing on new versions of Chrome.
    • πŸ›  Fixed: issues with exporting dictionaries to Excel.
    • πŸ›  Fixed: Cohort visualization gets stuck when passing string values.
    • πŸ›  Fixed: use series name for Pie chart label.
    • πŸ‘· Make sure Flask app created in Celery's worker process (could cause some query runners to get stuck while running queries).

    December 04, 2018

    πŸš€ This release was 2 months in the making and it is full with good stuff!

    • We have 5 new data sources: Databricks, IBM DB2, Kylin, Druid and Rockset. βŒ—
    • πŸ“ˆ There are fixes and improvements to 11 existing data sources (MySQL, Redshift, Postgres, MongoDB, Google BigQuery, Vertica, TreasureData, Presto, ClickHouse, Google Sheets and Google Analytics).
    • The Query Results data source can now load cached results, just use the cached_query_ prefix instead of query_.
    • ⚑️ On the visualizations front we added a Heatmap visualization and did updated the table and counter visualizations.
    • πŸ›  Alerts got some fixes and a new destination: PagerDuty.
    • πŸ‘€ If the live autocomplete in the code editor annoys you, you can disable it now (although we're working to make it better, see #3092).
    • Fast queries will now load faster. πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ
    • We improved the layout of visualizations and content on smaller screen sizes. πŸ“±
    • For those of you who like sharing, you can now enable the ability to share ownership of queries and dashboards and let others to edit them. Check the Settings page to enable this feature.

    There were also important changes to the code and infrastructure:

    • 🚚 More components moved to React.
    • We switched to Webpack 4 with the help of @dmonego.
    • ⬆️ We upgraded to Celery 4 with the help of @emtwo, @jezdez, @mashrikt and @atharvai.
    • βœ… We started moving towards Python 3 for our backend. The first step was to make sure our code pass basic sanity tests with Flake 8, which was implemented by @cclauss.
    • βœ… We improved our testing on the frontend by adding setup for Jest tests and E2E testing using Cypress (@gabrieldutra).
    • πŸš€ Each pull request now gets a deploy preview using Netlify to easily test frontend changes.
