This topic explains how to upgrade the CyberArk Conjur Service Broker for VMware Tanzu tile.

Upgrade CyberArk Conjur Service Broker for VMware Tanzu

Upgrading the CyberArk Conjur Service Broker for the VMware Tanzu tile requires the same steps you ran in the Ops Manager when you first installed the tile. Your configuration settings migrate to the new version when you add the upgrade tile to the Ops Manager.

  1. Review the Release Notes for the version you are upgrading to, also check for any version specific upgrade instructions below.

  2. Download the desired tile version from Pivotal Network.

  3. Open the Ops Manager Dashboard and select Import a Product to upload the new tile file.

  4. Under the Import a Product button, click the + next to CyberArk Conjur Service Broker for VMware Tanzu. This adds the updated tile to your Ops Manager staging area.

  5. Click the CyberArk Conjur Service Broker for VMware Tanzu tile to review the configuration settings. Click Save on any tabs where you modify the settings.

  6. Open the Ops Manager Dashboard and click Review Pending Changes and Apply Changes.

Version Specific Upgrade Instructions

From 1.0.0 to 1.1.x

After Upgrading

Version 1.1.0 introduces the option to create space-scoped host identities rather than application specific host identities. These identities are created when the service instance is created in a space.

To use space host identities in a space that already has a Conjur service instance provisioned, you must first remove and re-create the Conjur Service instance in that space.

To remove and re-create the Conjur Service instance, do the following:

Note: These steps require the CloudFoundry CLI, cf.

  1. Target the desired org and space

    cf target -o my-org -s my-space
  2. Un-bind each application from the Conjur service

    cf unbind-service my-app conjur
  3. Remove the Conjur service instance from the space

    cf delete-service conjur
  4. Re-create the Conjur service instance

    cf create-service cyberark-conjur community conjur
  5. Re-bind each application to the Conjur service

    cf bind-service my-app conjur

From 0.3.3 to 1.0.0

Before Upgrading

(Required) Rename Service Broker

Before you upgrade the tile version from 0.3.3 to 1.0.0 in the Ops Manager, you must rename the existing service broker and service broker application in VMware Tanzu. This is accomplished with the these steps:

Note: These steps require the CloudFoundry CLI, cf.

  1. Target the CyberArk Conjur space:

    cf target -o cyberark-conjur-org -s cyberark-conjur-space
  2. Rename the service broker:

    cf rename-service-broker conjur_service_broker conjur-service-broker
  3. Rename the service broker application:

    cf rename conjur_service_broker-0.3.3 conjur-service-broker-0.3.3

After Upgrading

(Optional) Update Existing Apps with the Conjur Buildpack

Version 1.0.0 updates the Conjur Buildpack to version 2.0.0. This version changes the buildpack type from a decorator buildpack to a supply buildpack, making it easier to use alongside other existing buildpacks. This will likely require updating how your applications include and use the buildpack. More information about using the Conjur Buildpack can be found here.

Note: Applications already running will continue to function until the app is either pushed (cf push) or restaged (cf restage). At that point the buildpack must be updated.

To update a VMware Tanzu application to use the new CyberArk Conjur Supply Buildpack, you must either add it to the application’s manifest, or include the buildpack in the cf push command when deploying the application.

  • To add the buildpack to the application’s manifest file, add the conjur_buildpack to your buildpacks section, before the final or primary application buildpack. For example:

    - name: my-app
      - conjur
      - conjur_buildpack
      - ruby_buildpack
  • To add the buildpack to the cf push command, include the argument -b conjur_buildpack prior to the final or primary application buildpack. For example:

    cf push my-app -b conjur_buildpack ... -b final_buildpack

(Optional) Delete Meta Buildpack

The Conjur Buildpack version 1.0.0 used a Meta Buildpack which is no longer required by the Conjur Buildpack version 2.0.0. However, this buildpack is not automatically removed in the Ops Manager upgrade.

To remove it it, use the command:

cf delete-buildback meta_buildpack

(Optional) Enable Org/Space Permissions in Existing Spaces

Any Spaces where a Conjur service instance is already provisioned will not be automatically upgraded to support the new Org and Space entitlements, and need to be manually provisioned.

Note: Existing application entitlements will continue to function without this step. New applications, however, will not be able to bind with the Conjur service without this provisioning step.

To provision an existing Space with a Conjur service instance, follow these steps:

  1. Target the desired space:

    cf target -o "my-org" -s "my-space"
  2. Create a new conjur service instance:

    Note: This step causes the service broker to initialize the Org and Space policy branches and Conjur layers for entitlement at the Org and Space level.

    cf create-service cyberark-conjur community conjur-provision
  3. Clean up and remove the provisioning service instance:

    cf delete-service conjur-provision

    Additionally, any new applications in an existing space will fail to bind to thte Conjur service without this provisioning step.

To migrate existing spaces to the new Org and Spa

(Optional) Re-Bind Existing Applications to Conjur

Applications bound to Conjur using version 0.3.3 of Cyberark Conjur Service Broker for VMware Tanzu do not automatically re-bind to the Conjur service and be given new host IDs during the upgrade. This means existing applications do not inherit the Org and Space permissions by default.

To re-issue an existing applications host ID, the application must be rebound to the Conjur service. To accomplish this:

  1. Target the space where your application is deploy. For example:

    cf target -o "my-org" -s "my-space"
  2. Unbind the application from the Conjur service:

    cf unbind-service [app-name] [conjur-service-instance-name]
  3. Bind the application back to the Conjur service:

    Warning: This issues a NEW host ID to the application. So any secret entitlements specific to the application must be granted again in Conjur policy to the new host id.

    cf unbind-service [app-name] [conjur-service-instance-name]

    The new host ID for the application can be obtained with the command:

    $ cf env [app-name] | grep authn_login | awk '{print $NF}' | sed 's/host.*\///g; s/"//g; s/,$//g'
