  • UI displays node identification via id instead of hostname+port as backdrop of name
  • 401 Unauthorized API response should trigger dashboard redirect to login page
  • UI: no user feedback on profile upload error
  • un-hide errors in chef-compliance.rb handling
  • Resource registrykey { shouldnot exist } unavailable
  • display node name in scan report instead of ID
