Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

Prevent storing secrets in the Chef node object

Cookbook-omnibus-gitlab allows you to keep secret Omnibus-gitLab settings
(passwords, keys) in an encrypted data bag. These secrets then get decrypted
during the Chef client run on your GitLab server. Due to a programming error,
the cookbook-omnibus-gitlab would then send the plaintext secrets back to the
Chef server to be stored in the node's database record. This defeats one of the
purposes of using encrypted data bags, namely to keep plaintext secrets off of
the Chef server.

In version 0.1.2 we make sure that the secrets stored in the encrypted data bag
do not get sent back to the server.

If you have been using cookbook-omnibus-gitlab with an encrypted data bag you
should upgrade to cookbook-omnibus-gitlab 0.1.2 or newer and inspect your
GitLab nodes to look for secrets:

knife node show --format json

If some of your cookbook-omnibus-gitlab secrets got uploaded to the Chef server
you can delete them from the node object using knife node edit
after you upgrade cookbook-omnibus-gitlab to 0.1.2 or

As an additional measure you may want to consider changing the affected
passwords and keys.
