Let’s have a look at the new features.

Quick navigation

Hub 2017.1 introduces a quick navigation feature. It lets you you search for and navigate to any entity from any page in Hub. For example, press Ctrl+K or Cmd+K (Mac OS) to open a global navigation dialog, start typing the name of the entity that you wish to go to, and Hub’s smart search will take you there!

Revised access tab

We have fully redesigned access tab, which gives you full control over access management. The new access tab makes it more convenient to grant or revoke roles, see the permissions set, and filter roles per users, projects or groups.

Revised access tab

LDAP bind to a fixed account

Hub 2017.1 lets you send LDAP bind requests to a fixed user account. This option lets you set up standard two-step LDAP authentication. With this model, you use a dedicated account for the LDAP bind request and search for the user you want to authenticate on behalf of the bind user.
With this feature, you can set up an LDAP authentication module and still use logins that are not part of the Distinguished Name (DN), like an email address or token. This is also similar to the login configuration that is used by TeamCity, so administrators can use a single model for LDAP integration in all JetBrains team tools. Check out the documentation to find out more how to configure a bind user.

LDAP_new

Credentials management

In Hub 2017.1 you may add additional credentials to your user profile. You can merge existing credentials with your Hub account or create a new one. This new feature lets you restore your profile with the additional credentials, if you accidentally delete your primary ones.

Credentials_management

Permanent access token

Now you can use permanent tokens to strengthen security for Hub integrations with external services. Simply create a new token with a specific access scope, and use it for authentication in API calls.

Perm_token

Enhancements

Description for banned users

When you ban a user in Hub 2017.1, you can enter a reason for performing this action. This description is added next to the user name and visible to other users who have the necessary permissions.

Banned

Scheduled backups

You can now schedule automatic backups. You no longer need to manually create backups to save an archive copy of your Hub database. Select a pre-configured interval or use a cron expression to set a custom interval. Hub saves your data like clockwork.

Backups

Delete an entity from anywhere

Before Hub 2017.1, the only way to delete an entity was to manually find it in the relevant list. That meant admins had to spent time looking for the right entity. Now it is possible to delete a user, group, or any other entity right from its page.

Delete entity

Enhanced Auth Modules

In Hub 2017.1, you can now create and configure a custom OAuth 2.0 module. We also improved the interface for new authentication modules and added pre-sets for the following services: Facebook, Yandex, Microsoft Live, PayPal, Azure AD and Amazon.

Auth_modules

Open service URL

This small improvement will save your time when working with services in Hub. If you want to open a service’s home URL, you don’t have to copy and paste its link anymore; simply click “open url” next to it.

Open_url

Other improvements

We have improved the way resources are changed; added the ability to disable trusted SSL certificates; and introduced the ability to specify a connection and read timeouts for an auth module, among others. For more details, please check the Release Notes.

Sounds great? Download Hub 2017.1 today and enjoy all the new features!

Hub 3.0 Roadmap

Since we released Hub 2.0 a few months ago, the team has been busy delivering updates for the current version. Today we are excited to share the roadmap for Hub 3.0, the upcoming version of Hub. Please note that this is just an approximate plan and subject to change.

As usual, we’ve divided the list of features into several groups:

    • Required features – we won’t release the next version until all these features are done.
    • Wanted features – the list of features that we want to include in Hub 3.0.
    • Nice-to-have features – optional features that would be great to have in the next version but not guaranteed.

Required Features

  1. Go to action JPS-3215.

This cool feature will allow you to get directly to various categories and substances in Hub, which is much more convenient than the typical navigation between the tabs. The most exciting thing about it is its fuzzy search. Let’s say you want to find one of your users using this feature. Click the Global Navigation icon in the header or just use the shortcut Cmd+K to open a command window. Start typing the first letters of a username, and Hub will show you a list of matching users to choose from. You don’t even have to use the space button to find what you are looking for.

Screen Shot 2016-06-20 at 12.21.32To switch to another menu item, start typing its name and you will get a suggestion immediately.

2. LDAP support improvements JPS-2290:

  • Allow LDAP Authentication Via Bind User JPS-2289. For various reasons, some users experience difficulties with LDAP Simple Bind Authentication that we currently support in Hub. LDAP Bind Authentication will allow users to integrate LDAP and Hub database painlessly.
  • LDAP hierarchical User Directory support JPS-2892. Users will be able to create different Auth Modules for the different branches of LDAP. It will make it easier for those who have LDAP hierarchical user directory to have a similar structure in Hub.

More LDAP support improvements are also mentioned in the “nice-to-have” list below.

3. Usability Improvements:

  • Enable user to add authorization details on his/her profile page JPS-942.
  • System Admin role should automatically include all permissions JPS-3638.

4. Support OpenID Connect.

Today Hub supports some OpenID 2.0 providers as Authentication Modules. To make an authentication process faster and more secure for you, we will support OpenID Connect standard and integrate those providers that already support it.

5. Dashboard improvements:

  • Add “Preview” mode to Default (Guest) Dashboard for Admin user DSH-582.
  • Make the Dashboard a default landing page JPS-3927.
  • Add “Create an issue” widget on Dashboard DSH-588.

Along with these features we want to make some header changes to make it easier for YouTrack and Upsource users to use Hub: move all user pages to the top and all the admin pages under the settings.

Wanted features

  1. Continuous synchronization with LDAP JPS-228. This feature will provide real-time synchronization with LDAP.
  2. Authentication:
  • Two-factor Authentication JPS-3486.
  • Implement SAML authentication module JPS-3207.

Nice-to-have features

1. LDAP support improvements:

  • Support for LDAP Group JPS-2212.
  • Password synchronization with LDAP JPS-2891.
  • Possibility to select avatar from Active Directory JPS-2894.

2. Add a project to your favorites JPS-3067.

3. Clone an existing project in Hub JPS-2135.

4. Implement comparison for various categories and substances JPS-2122.

5. Make Hub an external auth server for third party services JPS-3030.

6. Usability Improvements:

  • Auto-save function on the pages of editing JPS-3852.
  • Implement user profile card as a widget JPS-3962. Users will be able to view cards that display user details that are stored in the Hub user profile. These cards will be displayed as pop-ups when you move the pointer over links that reference Hub user accounts.
