Release notes for build #1774, release March 21, 2019

Build 1.15.1774


Access Control Support:

  • Access control support of the entire Filespace. Available for newly created Filespaces only. Should initialize new Filespaces using the 1.15.1774 LucidLink Client.
  • Instantly share folders with read or read & write permissions. Nested shares supported.
  • Access control support is included in the base pricing.


New Terms:

  • Root user - root user is automatically created for all existing Filespaces. What was known as shared secret is renamed to password and can be used to login to existing Filespaces.
  • Normal user - you can now create any number of non-root users per Filespace.  Case insensitive, case preserving, up to 128 chars.
  • Share - A share represents a folder that has been shared with a specific user. Multiple shares can be assigned to the same user. Multiple users can be assigned the same share.


Client Enhancements:

  • CLI new commands:
    • `lucid help user` and `lucid help share` for managing users and shares.


  • CLI modified commands:
    • `lucid link` now supports "--user" option to allow users to link to a Filespace. Defaults to root user for backward compatibility with existing Filespaces.
    • `lucid status` now shows linked "User".
    • `lucid status` now shows Filespace version:
      • v.1 - old FS - does not support access control;
      • v.2 - new FS - does support access control.
    • `lucid daemon` now supports `lucid link` options to ease starting of LucidLink with a single  command (e.g. lucid daemon --fs myfs.mydomain --user root --mount-point /my/mountpoint ).
    • `lucid activate` now supports "--user" option. Defaults to root user.
    • `lucid init-s3` only available to the root user.
    • `lucid rekey-s3` only available to the root user.
    • `lucid snapshot` - "--create" and "--delete" options only available to the root user.
    • `lucid snapshot` - "--list" option available for all users.


  • User interface enhancements:
    • [Login screen] -  now requires Filespace, Username and Password to link to a Filespace. Username defaults to root user.
    • [Login screen] - "Shared secret" renamed to "Password".
    • [Access control management panel] - New panel now available for users management and shares management through the user interface.


Bug Fixes:

  • [CentOS] - Fixed missing UI app indicator.
  • [Windows] LucidLink Client dashboard may be clipped when Windows taskbar is vertical.
  • Fixed a race condition where creating a snapshot for a Filespace that is under heavy write load can lead to a corruption in the snapshotted version.
