Amazon Neptune Engine Version 1.0.4.0.R2 (2021-02-24) - Amazon Neptune

Amazon Neptune Engine Version 1.0.4.0.R2 (2021-02-24)

As of 2021-02-24, engine version 1.0.4.0.R2 is being generally deployed. Please note that it takes several days for a new release to become available in every region.

Defects Fixed in This Engine Release

  • Fixed a bug in Release: 1.0.4.0 (2020-10-12) that allowed connections to Neptune using HTTP or earlier versions of TLS, rather than HTTPS and TLS 1.2.

    Important

    Having to use SSL/TLS for all connections to Neptune can be a breaking change. It affects your connections with the Gremlin console, the Gremlin driver, Gremlin Python, .NET, nodeJs, REST APIs, and also load-balancer connections. If you have been using HTTP or an older TLS version for any or all of these up until now, you must update the relevant client and drivers before installing this patch, and change your code to use HTTPS exclusively.

  • Fixed a bug in the CSV bulk load involving labels that end in #.

  • Fixed a Gremlin bug where InternalFailureException was set as the response code in certain circumstances when a ConcurrentModificationException occurred.

  • Fixed a Gremlin bug where under certain conditions updating edges or vertices could cause a transient InternalFailureException.

Query-Language Versions Supported in This Release

Before upgrading a DB cluster to version 1.0.4.0.R2, make sure that your project is compatible with these query-language versions:

  • Gremlin version: 3.4.8

  • SPARQL version: 1.1

Upgrade Paths to Engine Release 1.0.4.0.R2

Your cluster will be upgraded to this patch release automatically during your next maintenance window if you are running engine version 1.0.4.0.

You can manually upgrade any previous Neptune engine release to this release.

Upgrading to This Release

Amazon Neptune 1.0.4.0.R2 is now generally available.

If a DB cluster is running an engine version from which there is an upgrade path to this release, it is eligible to be upgraded now. You can upgrade any eligible cluster using the DB cluster operations on the console or by using the SDK. The following CLI command will upgrade an eligible cluster immediately:

For Linux, OS X, or Unix:

aws neptune modify-db-cluster \ --db-cluster-identifier (your-neptune-cluster) \ --engine-version 1.0.4.0 \ --apply-immediately

For Windows:

aws neptune modify-db-cluster ^ --db-cluster-identifier (your-neptune-cluster) ^ --engine-version 1.0.4.0 ^ --apply-immediately

Updates are applied to all instances in a DB cluster simultaneously. An update requires a database restart on those instances, so you will experience downtime ranging from 20–30 seconds to several minutes, after which you can resume using the DB cluster.

For more information about upgrading your engine version, see Neptune engine updates. If you have any questions or concerns, the AWS Support team is available on the community forums and through AWS Premium Support.
