During this maintenance window we will upgrade The Things Network v3.14.2

We do not expect noticeable downtime during this deployment.

Here is the changelog since the current version v3.14.1:


  • CLI warnings about insecure connections.
  • CLI warnings about using the --all flag.
  • Packet Broker network listed switch in the Console.
  • Improved errors for invalid command-line flags.
  • Validation of entity attributes in the Console, with regards to maximum length for keys and values.
  • Support limiting concurrent data plane application gRPC and MQTT connections by application and tenant ID. See the resource-limiting configuration section for details.
  • CLI command to decode raw LoRaWAN frames (ttn-lw-cli lorawan decode), useful for debugging purposes.
  • Options to restore or purge deleted applications, gateways and organizations in the Console.
  • Handling of default mac settings values when manually registering end devices in the Console.
  • Add a new class_b_c_downlink_interval field that can be configured to set the minimum interval between a network initiated downlink (Class B & Class C) and an arbitrary downlink per device.
  • Retrieve count of upstream messages from the Storage Integration by end device.
    • See the new GetStoredApplicationUpCount RPC.
    • See the new ttn-lw-cli applications storage count and ttn-lw-cli end-devices storage count CLI commands.


  • The Identity Server now returns a validation error when trying to update the EUIs of an end device.
  • Network Server no longer accepts RX metadata from Packet Broker if the originating forwarder network equals the current Network Server (by NetID and cluster ID, based onns.net-id and ns.cluster-id configuration). This avoids duplicate RX metadata as well as redundant downlink scheduling attempts through Packet Broker after the cluster's Gateway Server already failed to schedule.
  • Usability of the end device import function in the Console.
    • Show a per-device report when errors occur.
    • More structural changes to the process to improve UX.


  • Packet Broker mutual TLS authentication; only OAuth 2.0 is supported now.
  • request_details from errors in the Console.


  • Generated CLI configuration for The Things Stack Community Edition.
  • End device access with limited rights in the Console.
  • Parsing of ID6 encoded EUIs from Basic Station gateways.
  • Warnings about unknown fields when getting or searching for gateways.
  • Internal Server Errors from pkg/identityserver/store.
  • Console rendering blank pages in outdated browsers due to missing or incomplete internationalization API.
  • Error in edit user form (Console) when submitting without making any changes.
  • description field not being fetched in edit user form (admin only) in the Console.
  • Ignore invalid configuration when printing configuration with ttn-lw-cli config or ttn-lw-stack config.
  • Emails about API key changes.
  • Avoid rendering blank pages in the Console for certain errors.
  • Blank page crashes in the Console for certain browsers that do not fully support Intl API.
  • End device session keys handling in the Console.
  • Byte input width in Safari in the Console.
