Security Fixes
The lodash dependency has been updated in the following plug-ins to address a vulnerability:

  • Endevor Plug-in
  • Endevor Bridge for Git Plug-in
Brightside 3.0.11
This release includes updated Zowe v1.20 components.
Zowe CLI
Added a
like
option to the
zowe zos-files create data-set
command. Use this option to create a data set based on a model data set.
SYSVIEW Performance Management Plug-in 1.20
The latest version (1.20) of the SYSVIEW Performance Management Plug-in for Zowe CLI is available. This version includes the following updates and fixes:
  • Supports base profiles
  • Supports API Mediation Layer tokens
  • Displays field headers instead of field names
    For example, on the CPU command, the field
    BusyGraph
    displays
    ...1...2...3...4...5...6...7...8...9..10
  • Bugfix: remove leading space from column headers
    Some SYSVIEW commands have columns that consist of simple numbers. For example, COMMON. Due to the way that Zowe/Imperative was building tables in the CLI, it caused the columns to be hoisted to the front of the table. By adding a leading space to the headers to cause them to be treated as
    string
    data, they retain their proper order. This worked fine for displaying data as a table. However, when using the --response-format-json option, other issues can occur. With an Imperative update, column order can now be explicitly specified. Therefore, this workaround is no longer required.
