Manage 1.18.0 is now available from the Chef download site.
With this release Manage will now respect the “`strict_search_result_acls“` setting if it is set on the Chef server. When this setting is enabled the Chef server search functionality does ACL permission checking before returning results. This means Manage no longer has to do this checking itself, resulting in a speedup in Manage.
A full description of this setting and how to enable it can be found on the Chef docs site here. Ensure you read the description before enabling this setting, as it has potential implications beyond Manage.
This release also includes a number of minor bug fixes. The most notable of these is bumping the version of the internal Chef client used by Manage during reconfigures, which solves an encoding issue that was encountered on some systems. As always, you can see the full change log on hosted Chef at https://manage.chef.io/changelog.
Thank you for using Chef.
