Release Candidate UniFi Network Controller 5.13.9


Important notes
Release Stage: Testing


  • Fix enabling Remote Access if 2fa is enabled for SSO.
  • Add missing icons for new devices.
  • Restore IPS widged.
Known issues
  • UBB LED settings does not show up if LED is disabled.
(Recommended) - Create an up-to-date backup before upgrading your controller in the event any issues are encountered.
  • Existing UniFi Network controllers must be on one of the following versions in order to upgrade directly to this version:
[*]An updated/current version of Java 8 must be installed on the system hosting the controller software. Java 9 and later are not yet supported.
[*]As of UniFi Network controller 5.9, if using Cloud Access, the host system/device requires outbound 8883/tcp to be open/unrestricted. Find up-to-date port requirements here.
[*]Minimum supported device firmware for UAP/USW is 4.0.9, and for USG it's 4.4.34.
[*]If you have any 'service dns forwarding options' configuration defined in config.gateway.json, it will overwrite the provisioning of statically defined name servers, leaving you with no DNS. Either remove the 'service dns forwarding options' portion of config.gateway.json, or add additional 'options' lines defining name servers, such as 'server=', 'server=', etc.
[*]PoE passthrough control was implemented for UAP-IW-HD which means that the default for PoE passthrough is now disabled instead of enabled. If you were using this feature before then you will need to re-enable it via the device property panel.
Microsoft Windows specific
  • Users running 64-bit Windows should only have 64-bit Java installed. If you have 32-bit Java installed then we recommend uninstalling it.
macOS Specific
  • We stopped bundling Java as of UniFi Network 5.11.47. If you're installing that release or later please make sure you have manually installed a current release of Java 8 beforehand. Only the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is required.
  • Oracle JRE 8 offers the simplest path as it will simply "just work" without requiring any changes. We may investigate alternative JVMs and update this message accordingly.
Debian/Ubuntu specific
  • For Debian/Ubuntu users installing via our repo, please update your APT source (see HERE).
  • Currently we only support MongoDB 3.4. We're working on updating support before end of life this fall. We have instructions for Ubuntu users in our HC article HERE (see section 2.2).
