If upgrading a cluster, you must be running CrateDB 4.0.2 or higher before you upgrade to 4.5.4.

See the Version 4.5.0 release notes for a full list of changes in the 4.5 series.


  • Fixed a regression that caused the job_id column within the sys.operations_log table to return the id values instead of the job_id values.

  • Fixed an issue that could result in a IOException: can not write type ... error when combining values of type TIMETZ, NUMERIC, GEO_POINT or INTERVAL with values of type UNDEFINED.

  • Fixed an issue that caused INSERT FROM VALUE statements to insert records, despite failing validation and returning an error to the client.

  • Fixed an issue that caused the NOW() and CURRENT_USER functions to get normalized to a literal value when used as part of a generated column or DEFAULT expression in a CREATE TABLE statement.

  • Fixed a HBA SSL configuration parsing issue. The on value for the ssl configuration option was not recognized and got interpreted as ‘true’.
