The ScyllaDB team is pleased to announce the release of Scylla Operator 1.8.0.
ScyllaDB Operator is an open-source project that helps ScyllaDB Open Source and ScyllaDB Enterprise users run ScyllaDB on Kubernetes. ScyllaDB Operator manages ScyllaDB clusters deployed to Kubernetes and automates tasks related to operating a ScyllaDB cluster, like installation, scale out and downscale, as well as rolling upgrades.
ScyllaDB Operator 1.8.0 improves stability and brings a few features. As with all of our releases, any API changes are backwards compatible.
- Experimental - Ingress objects are now reconciled for each ScyllaCluster node (#993)
- Experimental - Managed TLS Certificates allowing users to enable client-node encryption (#1021)
- ScyllaCluster status has been extended with Conditions improving observability (#1070)
- PodDisruptionBudgets reconciled by the Operator are using v1 API version which fixes support for newer Kubernetes version, where v1beta1 version was removed. (#1005)
- Custom annotations added by users on managed ServiceAccount object are not removed on reconciliation (#933)
- Fixed the decommission procedure for drained node (#967)
- Idle connections to ScyllaDB API are closed after Operator no longer needs them, fixing OOM issues happening months after ScyllaCluster creation (#1017)
- Fixed repository paths to allow vendoring of our source code (#1098)
For more changes and details check out the GitHub release notes.

Upgrading from v1.7.x with
kubectl apply doesn’t require any extra action, just take the manifest from v1.8.0 tag and substitute the released image. Using helm requires a mandatory manual step for every release because helm can’t handle CRDs updates. For details, see our upgrade documentation.
