New in this release

New features

Enhancements

  • New Cluster Manager UI enhancements:

  • Maintenance mode enhancements:

    • Only the latest maintenance mode snapshot is kept.

    • Use the overwrite_snapshot option to create a new snapshot when you turn on maintenance mode.

    • keep_slave_shards is deprecated. Use evict_ha_replica and evict_active_active_replica instead.

    • View or delete node snapshots using /v1/nodes/{node_uid}/snapshots REST API requests.

  • Added support for RHEL 9.

  • Improved actions REST API:

  • GET /v1/users REST API requests include a new status field in the response, which indicates whether the user can sign in:

    • active: user can sign in

    • locked: user cannot sign in

  • Replaced the use of processes for job_scheduler, cnm_http, and crdb_coordinator with threads, which results in significant memory optimization.

Redis module feature sets

Redis Enterprise comes packaged with several modules. As of version 7.4.2, Redis Enterprise includes two feature sets, compatible with different Redis database versions.

Bundled Redis modules compatible with Redis database version 7.2:

Bundled Redis modules compatible with Redis database versions 6.0 and 6.2:

Resolved issues

  • RS57417: Azure OSS cluster with Private Link should no longer return public IPs in response to CLUSTER commands.

  • RS106159: If RESP3 is not supported, HELLO requests now return an unknown command error instead of a protocol error.

  • RS107538: Fixed an issue where DMC proxy perpetually restarted due to a CCS inconsistency.

Version changes

Breaking changes

  • Renamed sentinel_ssl_policy field. The new name is sentinel_tls_mode.

    • You can only change the discovery service policy using sentinel_tls_mode.

    • When retrieving the value of the current policy using GET /v1/cluster, both fields are returned for backward compatibility.

  • Port 3345 is now reserved for internal use.

  • Type of progress field returned by GET /v1/actions request modified from integer to float.

Deprecations

API deprecations

  • The replica HA cluster policy is deprecated.

  • The maintenance mode option keep_slave_shards is deprecated in rladmin and the REST API. Use evict_ha_replica and evict_active_active_replica instead.

  • /v1/debuginfo REST API paths are deprecated. Use the new paths /v1/cluster/debuginfo, /v1/nodes/debuginfo, and /v1/bdbs/debuginfo instead.

Legacy UI deprecation

The legacy UI is deprecated in favor of the new Cluster Manager UI and will be removed in a future release.

Redis 6.0 database deprecation

Redis database version 6.0 is deprecated as of Redis Enterprise Software version 7.4.2 and will be removed in a future release.

To prepare for the future removal of Redis 6.0:

  • For Redis Enterprise 6.2.* clusters, upgrade Redis 6.0 databases to Redis 6.2. See the Redis 6.2 release notes for the list of changes.

  • For Redis Enterprise 7.2.4 and 7.4.2 clusters, upgrade Redis 6.0 databases to Redis 7.2. Before you upgrade your databases, see the list of Redis 7.2 breaking changes and update any applications that connect to your database to handle these changes.

Operating system retirements

Security retirements

  • The RC4 encryption cipher, which was previously deprecated in favor of stronger ciphers, is no longer supported.

  • The 3DES encryption cipher, which was previously deprecated in favor of stronger ciphers like AES, is no longer supported. Verify that all clients, applications, and connections support the AES cipher.

  • TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 connections, which were previously deprecated in favor of TLS 1.2 or later, are no longer supported. Verify that all clients, applications, and connections support TLS 1.2 or later.

Supported platforms

Supported – The platform is supported for this version of Redis Enterprise Software.

⚠️ Deprecated – The platform is still supported for this version of Redis Enterprise Software, but support will be removed in a future release.

End of life – Platform support ended in this version of Redis Enterprise Software.

Known limitations

New Cluster Manager UI limitations

The following legacy UI features are not yet available in the new Cluster Manager UI:

OpenSSL compatibility issue for 7.4.2 modules on Amazon Linux 2

Due to an OpenSSL 1.1 compatibility issue between modules and clusters, Redis Enterprise Software version 7.4.2-54 is not fully supported on Amazon Linux 2 clusters with databases that use the following modules: RedisGears, RediSearch, or RedisTimeSeries.

This issue will be fixed in a future maintenance release.

RedisGraph prevents upgrade to RHEL 9

You cannot upgrade from a prior RHEL version to RHEL 9 if the Redis Enterprise cluster contains a RedisGraph module, even if unused by any database. The RedisGraph module has reached End-of-Life and is completely unavailable in RHEL 9.

Security

Open source Redis security fixes compatibility

As part of Redis’s commitment to security, Redis Enterprise Software implements the latest security fixes available with open source Redis. Redis Enterprise has already included the fixes for the relevant CVEs.

Some CVEs announced for open source Redis do not affect Redis Enterprise due to different or additional functionality available in Redis Enterprise that is not available in open source Redis.

Redis Enterprise 7.4.2-54 supports open source Redis 7.2, 6.2, and 6.0. Below is the list of open source Redis CVEs fixed by version.

Redis 7.2.x:

  • (CVE-2023-41056) In some cases, Redis may incorrectly handle resizing of memory buffers, which can result in incorrect accounting of buffer sizes and lead to heap overflow and potential remote code execution.

  • (CVE-2023-41053) Redis does not correctly identify keys accessed by SORT_RO and, as a result, may grant users executing this command access to keys that are not explicitly authorized by the ACL configuration. (Redis 7.2.1)

Redis 7.0.x:

  • (CVE-2023-41056) In some cases, Redis may incorrectly handle resizing of memory buffers, which can result in incorrect accounting of buffer sizes and lead to heap overflow and potential remote code execution.

  • (CVE-2023-41053) Redis does not correctly identify keys accessed by SORT_RO and, as a result, may grant users executing this command access to keys that are not explicitly authorized by the ACL configuration. (Redis 7.0.13)

  • (CVE-2023-36824) Extracting key names from a command and a list of arguments may, in some cases, trigger a heap overflow and result in reading random heap memory, heap corruption, and potentially remote code execution. Specifically: using COMMAND GETKEYS* and validation of key names in ACL rules. (Redis 7.0.12)

  • (CVE-2023-28856) Authenticated users can use the HINCRBYFLOAT command to create an invalid hash field that will crash Redis on access. (Redis 7.0.11)

  • (CVE-2021-32625) An integer overflow bug in Redis version 6.0 or newer can be exploited using the STRALGO LCS command to corrupt the heap and potentially result with remote code execution. This is a result of an incomplete fix by CVE-2021-29477. (Redis 6.2.4)

  • (CVE-2021-29478) An integer overflow bug in Redis 6.2 could be exploited to corrupt the heap and potentially result with remote code execution. The vulnerability involves changing the default set-max-intset-entries configuration value, creating a large set key that consists of integer values and using the COPY command to duplicate it. The integer overflow bug exists in all versions of Redis starting with 2.6, where it could result with a corrupted RDB or DUMP payload, but not exploited through COPY (which did not exist before 6.2). (Redis 6.2.3)
