Thanks @damm89 for reporting this and figuring out the cause!

1.4.1 (2022-06-24)

Bugfix release following 1.4.0

  • Fixed missing migration file for conversion from ADFS library to OpenID Connect library

  • Fixed the CI build not producing latest image tags correctly

1.4.0 (2022-05-03)

New features

  • Implemented automatic delivery retry mechanism on failure (#1132)

  • You can now manually (re)-send notifications from the admin interface (#1135)

  • Improved admin interface for notifications (#1133)


  • document Open Notificaties message delivery guarantees (#1151)

  • described subscription filters in docs (#1134)

Project maintenance

  • Replace ADFS library with generic OpenID Connect library - please see the notes below! (#1139)

  • Upgraded Python version from 3.7 to 3.9

  • Upgraded to Django 3.2.13 (#1136)


Manual intervention required for ADFS/AAD users.

Open Notificaties replaces the ADFS/Azure AD integration with the generic OIDC integration. On update, Open Notificaties will attempt to automatically migrate your ADFS configuration, but this may fail for a number of reasons.

We advise you to:

  • back up/write down the ADFS configuration BEFORE updating

  • verify the OIDC configuration after updating and correct if needed

Additionally, on the ADFS/Azure AD side of things, you must update the Redirect URIs: becomes

In release 1.5.0 you will be able to finalize the removal by dropping the relevant tables.

1.3.0 (2022-03-28)

New features

  • Upgraded to Django 3.2 LTS version (#1124)

  • Confirmed support for PostgreSQL 13 and 14

Project maintenance

  • Upgraded a number of dependencies to be compatible with Django 3.2 (#1124)


Manual intervention required!

Admin panel brute-force protection

Due to the ugprade of a number of dependencies, there is a new environment variable NUM_PROXIES which defaults to 1 which covers a typical scenario of deploying Open Notificaties behind a single (nginx) reverse proxy. On Kubernetes this is typically the case when using an ingress. Other deployment layouts/network topologies may require tweaks if there are additional load balancers/reverse proxies in play.

Failing to specify the correct number may result in:

  • login failures/brute-force attempts locking out your entire organization because one of the reverse proxies is now IP-banned - this happens if the number is too low.

  • brute-force protection may not be operational because the brute-forcer can spoof their IP address, this happens if the number is too high.

1.2.3 (2021-12-17)

Fixed a container image bug

MIME-types of static assets (CSS, JS, SVG…) were not properly returned because of the container base image not having the /etc/mime.types file.

1.2.2 (2021-12-07)

Fixed a bug allowing for empty kenmerk values in notifications.

1.2.1 (2021-09-20)

Open Notificaties 1.2.1 fixes a resource leak. See the below info box for more details.


Notifications are delivered to subscriptions via asynchronous background workers. These background tasks were incorrectly storing the execution metadata and result in the backend without consuming/ pruning them from the result store. The symptoms should have been fixed with the 1.2.0 release where the default backend is switched to Redis instead of RabbitMQ (which normally does evict keys after a certain timeout) - but this release fixes the root cause. Result and metadata are now no longer stored.

1.2.0 (2021-09-15)


  • Fixed the webserver and background worker processes not having PID 1

  • Containers now run as un-privileged user rather than the root user (open-zaak/open-zaak#869)

  • Added Celery Flower to the container images for background worker task monitoring

New features

  • Added support for generic OpenID Connect admin authentication (open-zaak/open-zaak#1034)

  • Clarified version numbers display in footer

1.1.3 (2021-03-17)

Bugfix release fixing some deployment issues

  • Fixed broken STATIC_URL and MEDIA_URL settings derived from SUBPATH. This should fix CSS/Javascript assets not loading in

  • Made CORS set-up opt-in
