download PDF

Red Hat Integration - Service Registry 1.0.1 is provided as a micro release in Red Hat Integration 2020-Q3. Service Registry is a datastore for standard event schemas and API designs that is based on the Apicurio Registry open source community project.

You can use Service Registry to manage and share the structure of your data using a REST interface. For example, client applications can dynamically push or pull the latest updates to or from Service Registry without needing to redeploy. You can also use Service Registry to create optional rules to govern how registry content evolves over time. For example, this includes rules for content type validation or backwards and forwards compatibility of schema or API versions.

Updated features in Service Registry 1.0.1

The Service Registry 1.0.1 micro release updates the Operator metadata that is used to install Service Registry 1.0 from the OpenShift OperatorHub user interface. The Service Registry product images have not changed and remain at version 1.0.

The new Operator metadata includes a new Operator bundle format for release packaging, which is designed for use with OpenShift Container Platform 4.5 or 4.6. For more details, see the Bundle Format in the OpenShift documentation.
