  • Bundled JRE version upgraded to 8.232.09.1.
  • Bug Fix: Docker Logs and Stats Sources were not running properly on FIPS enabled Collectors.
  • Bug Fix: Remote File Sources caused a connection leak due to the Collector not closing SFTP connections after hitting the retry limit.
  • Bug Fix: Wrapper configuration properties could not be set with the Command Line Installer.
  • Bug Fix: Addresses a potential security vulnerability where the Run As user information was preserved in the collector.properties file after installation on Windows systems. This fix applies to all prior Collector versions on Windows. You will need to remove the credentials from the collector.properties file manually on existing affected Collectors.
  • Bug Fix: A warning message was not provided when the installer was run with an invalid Run As user.

  • From this release forward Sumo Logic now bundles the Amazon Corretto JRE, v8.212.04.2, replacing Oracle’s OpenJDK. Note the following changes:

    • Users running the Collector on Windows 32 bit systems may require a patch before upgrading. We have set the static download URL for Windows 32 bit machines to point to the previous Collector version. Once your system is patched you can download this version by adding the parameter "?version=19.253-3" at the end of the static URL. For example, https://collectors.us2.sumologic.com/rest/download/linux/32?version=19.253-3

    • This and future releases of the Collector do not support Linux 32 bit.

  • Added the option to enable FIPS 140-2 compliant Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) on new Installed Collectors to encrypt your data to Sumo Logic's Fed deployment in US1 only. FIPS mode is not supported for any other deployment. If you are unsure whether you are on the Fed deployment, check our deployments
  • New parameters are configurable at install time with the Command Line Installer, eliminating the need to wait until after installation and restarting the Collector service.

March 18, 2019 (19.245-4)

  • Script Sources and Script Actions now need to be enabled on new Collectors using the parameters, enableScriptSource and enableActionSource. Previously these Sources were automatically enabled and we required you to disable them if needed. The new parameters are automatically added to existing Collectors when upgraded. They are set to true on Collectors that already have these Sources and set to false if the Collector doesn’t have these Sources.
  • Bug fix: Blacklist path expressions on Windows are now case insensitive to match Window’s behavior.

March 6, 2019 (19.227-24)

  • To maintain backward compatibility we've updated the parameters for Script and Action Sources in preparation for an upcoming release.

February 12, 2019 (19.227-22)

  • Bundled JRE version upgraded to 8u202.
  • Bug fix: Windows Collector upgrades could fail due to a timeout when checking for privileges of the user running the Collector service.
