  • Timely support for the latest major, minor, and patch versions of the Apache Airflow open source project.
  • A fully managed experience for using the Kubernetes executor and KubernetesPodOperator.
  • Support for role-based access control (RBAC) and single sign-on (SSO) for secure user management and authentication. See Configure an identity provider (IdP) and User permissions.
  • An observability experience that gives you data lineage across your ecosystem as well as real-time insight into the health and resource consumption of your data pipelines on Astro. See Data lineage and Deployment metrics.
