Breaking Changes

Console access is now disabled by default in the members' configuration. If you use the console in Management Center, console access needs to be enabled. See Managing Console Support in the Platform documentation.

Notes

  • Management Center 5.1 does not support Jet 4.5. It only supports IMDG 4.2, Hazelcast Platform 5.0 and later.

  • Management Center 5.1 supports SQL Browsing on Hazelcast Platform 5.0 and later. Platform 5.1 is highly recommended for SQL/Streaming support.

  • You should avoid updating the Client Filtering configuration during rolling upgrades if multiple Management Center instances are connected to the same cluster to keep the configuration consistent.
