Release 2022.1

Breaking changes

This release mostly removes legacy fields and features that have been deprecated for several releases.

  • LDAP Outposts:

    This release removes the accountStatus and superuser fields. Use the direct replacements and

  • Proxy Outposts:

    This release consolidates headers sent by authentik to have a common prefix.

    The following headers have been removed:

    • X-Auth-Username, use X-authentik-username
    • X-Auth-Groups, use X-authentik-groups
    • X-Forwarded-Email, use X-authentik-email
    • X-Forwarded-Preferred-Username, use X-authentik-username
    • X-Forwarded-User, use X-authentik-uid

    The proxy now also sets the host header based on what is configured as upstream in the proxy provider. The original Host is forwarded as X-Forwarded-Host.

    Additionally, the header requirements for nginx have changed. Either a X-Original-URL or X-Original-URI header are now required. See the Proxy provider documentation for updated snippets.

  • API:

    The deprecated /api/v2beta/ Endpoint is removed. Use /api/v3/.

  • Backup:

    The integrated backup has been deprecated for the following reasons:

    • Difficulty with restores not working properly
    • Inflexible configuration (fixed retention, limited to once a day, only S3 supported)
    • Most users will already have an existing backup infrastructure
