Release Kuzzle version 1.4

Hello everyone! 

At Kuzzle we work hard every day to bring as many new features as possible to our Backend.

Today we are pleased to release Kuzzle version 1.4. which is a minor release with a lot of new features.

 

AdminController

A new controller has been added to Kuzzle, the AdminController.
The AdminController allows you to perform maintenance tasks on your Kuzzle instance such as generating a dump, clearing the cache, deleting all indexes, resetting users and rights to zero.  
It offers features similar to those of the CLI but exposing them via the API so be careful not to allow this controller to everyone!

CLI

The CLI has been redesigned to use the new AdminController, it is now possible to use it from your computer to directly administrate your remote Kuzzle:

 

# Reset all rights and users to default
./bin/kuzzle -p 7512 -h my.kuzzle.io -U admin -P kuzzle_password resetSecurity

 

The redesign of the CLI made the InternalBroker disappear. It was the service listening to the CLI's instructions.
You can delete the description of the internalBroker service in your .kuzzlerc configuration file.
