Posted on Thu, 06/02/2022 - 08:00

DMTF’s Redfish®, Release 2022.1 is now available for public download. Designed to deliver simple and secure management for hybrid IT and the Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), the latest release of the Redfish standard includes 34 schema updates and a new developer resource, the Redfish Message Registry Guide. This new guide presents message registry definitions in a more human-readable format and includes a summary table as well as individual message details.

Key highlights of the Redfish 2022.1 release are the addition of SSH key related properties, addition of properties in Chassis to represent containment of power and thermal relationships, and a method to register an existing system as a resource block.

These latest enhancements are driven by the growth of Redfish and interoperability feedback received from implementers. Some of the items in the new Redfish 2022.1 update include:

  • Redfish Specification v1.15.1 – Errata release. Removal of a conflicting statement regarding Event Subscription that prevented specification of both RegistryPrefixes and MessageIds for inclusion in a subscription.
  • 2022.1 Redfish Schema Bundle – This .zip file contains the current versions of all Redfish schemas. The bundle includes 34 schema updates and developer resources. 
  • Redfish Message Registry Bundle 2022.1 – The Message Registry Bundle contains all released Redfish message registries.
