Description
This patch resolves the following common vulnerabilities and exposures:
This patch resolves the following issue that impacts deployments on Cloud Pak for Data 3.5.0:
  • Error: If you try to provision the Discovery service on a cluster where Planning Analytics is running, some of the Discovery pods don't start and installation fails. The logs for the pod show messages such as,java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string.
  • Cause: An environment variable named COUCHDB_PORT is added to the Kubernetes cluster by the Apache CouchDB service that is installed with Planning Analytics. Discovery does not use CouchDB, and so does not specify a value for the environment variable. However, some pods attempt to parse the variable, which results in the error.
  • Solution: This patch makes the pods ignore the COUCHDB_PORT environment variable.
