Label Studio Enterprise 2.11.1

Improved machine learning & LLM integrations, action to remove duplicated tasks, Redis ACL support, and other enhancements and bug fixes

Apr 30, 2024

Helm Chart version: 1.4.4

New features

Improved machine learning & LLM integrations

This release streamlines the way ML models and LLMs are connected to Label Studio with a focus on security and simplified user experience.

Using the powerful ML backend integration, users can add models and customize automated workflows for:

  • Pre-labeling: Letting ML/AI models predict labels autonomously, which can then be reviewed by human annotators.
  • Interactive labeling: An automated process that applies initial labels to data, which are then refined through manual review, enhancing the efficiency and accuracy of data annotation for machine learning models.
  • Model evaluation and fine-tuning: Used in models like the Segment Anything Model (SAM), involves a human-in-the-loop approach where the model provides initial predictions or annotations, and a human annotator interacts directly with these predictions to correct or refine them.

Label Studio Enterprise users can add custom models, or reference a new examples library to connect popular models, including Segment Anything, OpenAI, Grounding DINO, select Hugging Face models, Tesseract, and more.

Updates to the ML backend integration in this release include:

  • New support for basic auth, which means users can now connect to hosted ML backends that require a password.
  • The ability to specify additional parameters to pass to the model, which means users can now easily connect to Azure-hosted OpenAI in addition to OpenAI and popular ML models.
  • An improved UI and simplified project settings, including:
    • A new Live Predictions section under the Annotation page of the project settings makes it easier select whether you want to use predictions or a model in your annotation workflow.
    • A new Predictions page, where you can easily upload and manage predictions.
    • Removed obsolete settings that are no longer compatible (for example, auto-updating version).
    • Fixed various usability issues related to the annotation experience with a model connected.

For more information, see Integrate Label Studio into your machine learning pipeline.

Label Studio Enterprise 2.11.0

New ability to configure project-level roles, setting to hide the Cloud Storage page from Manager roles, other enhancements and bug fixes

Apr 09, 2024

Helm Chart version: 1.4.2

New features

Project-level roles

You can now assign the Reviewer or Annotator role to users on a per-project basis. This will help simplify team management and allow more flexibility for project managers within your organization to meet the needs of each project.

This feature was previously only available to organizations who had enabled SCIM for their user management. Now, project-level roles can be assigned as part of the project membership settings, and is applicable to any user who has the Annotator or Reviewer role at the organization level. For example, a user can be an Annotator at the organization level, but have the Reviewer role for a specific project. Similarly, a user with the Reviewer role at the organization level can be assigned as an Annotator to different projects as needed.

For more information, see Project-level roles.

Screenshot of the project-level roles

Enhancements

  • Added support for X-Api-Key: <token> as an alternative to Authentication: Token <token>. This will make it easier to use API keys when integrating with cloud-based services.
  • Small UI improvement to make it clearer which project members are included in the project by default.
  • There is a new setting in place that can control access to the Cloud Storage page for users with the Manager role. If you would like to enable this setting, set the HIDE_STORAGE_SETTINGS_FOR_MANAGER environment variable to True.
  • Several enhancements for organizations with SCIM enabled, including:
    • More detailed error messages.
    • Allow workspace and role mappings to support multiple SCIM groups.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue where Google Cloud Logging was not working due to a missing dependency.
  • Fixed an issue where /api/version was not reporting all updates.
  • Fixed an issue where, after revoking an invite to users who are already in projects, the project failed to load.

Label Studio Enterprise 2.10.0

Granular API-level control over annotation history, UI enhancements for performance and user experience, security updates, bug fixes

Feb 13, 2024

Helm chart version: 1.4.0

Enhancements

  • More granular API-level controls:

    • Implemented datetime filtering to the per-project annotation history API to support analytics queries and reporting. Now you can filter /api/projects/{id}/annotation-history by created_at_from and created_at_to.
  • Made several updates to the UI to improve performance and user experience, including:

    • Better formatting for longer text strings when using the grid view in the Data Manager.

    • The Projects page is now limited to 12 projects per page, improving load time performance..

    • Added a confirmation message after deleting a user.

Security

  • Implemented comprehensive HTML sanitization to safeguard against vulnerabilities and ensure a secure user experience.

  • This release includes several measures to increase SSRF protection, which address CVE-2023-47116:

    • When SSRF_PROTECTION_ENABLED is set to true (note that it defaults to false), our new default is to ban all IPs within reserved blocks, for both IPv4 and IPv6.
    • We are introducing two new environment variables, to be used in conjunction with SSRF_PROTECTION_ENABLED=true:
      • USER_ADDITIONAL_BANNED_SUBNETS — Use this to specify additional IP addresses or CIDR blocks to ban from server-side requests (e.g. the URL-based file uploader).
      • USE_DEFAULT_BANNED_SUBNETS — This is set to True by default. If you would like to have full control over banned subnets, you can set this to False and use USER_ADDITIONAL_BANNED_SUBNETS to specify all the IP addresses/CIDR blocks you’d like to disallow instead.
    • We have also improved our error messages to make it clearer when an action is being blocked due to SSRF protections.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue with the Number tag in which the max constraint was not working.

  • Fixed an issue with the Number tag where toName was not validated.

  • Fixed an issue in which users were seeing an error when switching from task details to settings while working with a video annotation.

Label Studio Enterprise 2.7.0

External taxonomy, group visibility in label distribution charts, soft delete users

Nov 21, 2023

Helm chart version: 1.2.9

New Features

External taxonomy

This release introduces the ability to load an external taxonomy into your labeling configuration. The mechanism for this is a new apiUrl parameter on the Taxonomy tag, which allows you to load your taxonomy from an external JSON-formatted file. Previously, you had to use Choice tags to manually define your taxonomy within the labeling configuration.

This feature provides multiple benefits, including:

  • Performance - Significant performance improvements for large taxonomies.
  • Usability and standardization - With JSON formatting and the ability to manage taxonomies in your editor of choice, external taxonomies are easier to organize and update.
  • Security - You can now securely store taxonomies outside of Label Studio.

Fore more information, see Quickly Load and Manage Large-Scale Taxonomies From External Sources, the Taxonomy template, and Taxonomy tag.

Animated gif showing taxonomy in action

Group visibility in label distribution charts and drag-and-drop reordering

When a labeling configuration includes multiple label groups, you can now use the project dashboard to gain insight into label group performance.

A new Summary view displays a donut chart showing label group distribution. This allows for more visibility into your labeling progress, and will help you identify areas within a project that might need additional task data.

Screenshot of label group distribution chart

You will also now be able to drag-and-drop the KPIs and charts to reorder them to your preference.

For more information, see Introducing Label Distribution Charts for Label Groups and User Soft Delete.

Animated gif showing dashboard reordering

Soft delete users

Administrators can now delete users through the app or the API. This feature is intended to provide enhanced user management for administrators while minimizing potential security risks.

Previously, administrators could only remove users by deactivating their account. However, this made it difficult to differentiate between users who are unlikely to return (such as a former employee) and users who might be temporarily inactive (such as freelance annotators). Now you can choose to either deactivate or delete a user.

For more information, see Introducing Label Distribution Charts for Label Groups and User Soft Delete.

Screenshot of user delete action

Enhancements

  • Added support for AWS Signature Version 4 query parameters.

  • The Submitted Annotations metric on project dashboards now includes a tooltip with additional information about skipped and empty annotations.

    Screenshot of tooltip on dashboard

Security

  • Fixed an SSRF DNS rebinding issue.
  • Fixed an XSS vulnerability on certain error pages.
  • Fixed an XSS vulnerability related to file extensions for avatars. This change addresses CVE-2023-47115.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue where a validation error was improperly displayed when setting the labeling configuration for a project.
  • Fixed an issue with zoom performance in Image Segmentation cases.
  • Fixed an issue where annotator performance dashboard agreements were incorrect.
  • Fixed a run time error seen when syncing with Azure blob storage.
  • Fixed an issue where tasks created through source storage were not triggering webhooks.
  • Fixed an issue where code was unnecessarily executing when contextual scrolling was disabled.
  • Fixed an issue where draft annotations were not being saved before navigating away.
  • Fixed an issue where PATCH api/tasks/<id> was returning an error.

Label Studio Enterprise 2.6.0

New snap parameter for KeyPoint, KeyPointLabels, Polygon, and PolygonLabels tags, improved usability when reviewing video in Outliner

Oct 24, 2023

Enhancements

  • The Keypoint, KeyPointLabels, Polygon, and PolygonLabels tags all support a new snap parameter for use in Image Segmentation labeling. When snap="pixel" is enabled, the (x, y) coordinates of each point are rounded to the pixel size. This enhancement will help ensure precise and uniform coordinates within images. For polygons, points are snapped to the pixel edge. For example, given a polygon point with the coordinates (0.25, 0.25), your resultant coordinates would snap to the edge of the pixel at (0,0). For keypoints, points are snapped to the pixel center. For example, given a keypoint with the coordinates (0.25, 0.25), your resultant coordinates would snap to the center of the pixel at (0.5,0.5).
  • When reviewing video in Outliner, if you click on a marked region, the video playback will automatically jump to the selected region. Previously, users had to manually scroll to the starting point. This change will make it easier to quickly view and edit video segments.

Breaking changes

  • This release adds a deployment-wide VERIFY_SSL_CERTS setting that defaults to true. Customers who are loading data (e.g. uploading tasks) from https URLs without verifiable SSL certificates must set VERIFY_SSL_CERTS to false in their environment variables before deploying Label Studio 2.6.0+.
  • Add WINDOWS_SQLITE_BINARY_HOST_PREFIX environment variable to support hosting SQLite binaries on a server other than sqlite.org, for Windows deployments running Python 3.8 only.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue where pressing Ctrl + or Ctrl - (Windows) or Cmd + or Cmd - (Mac) was not zooming in/out on images as expected.
  • Fixed an issue where the number of drafts displayed in the project summary was not updated when drafts were submitted as annotations.
  • Fixed an issue where, in certain contexts, labeling instructions were displayed in raw HTML.
  • Fixed an issue that occurred after project creation in which users were prevented from moving forward if changes were made in the template preview.
  • Fixed an issue where AWS Lambdas custom agreement functions only worked for Choice tags.
  • Fixed an issue where custom metrics for agreements weren’t working for annotations that had drafts.
  • Fixed an issue where users were unable to navigate through their task list after saving a draft.
  • Fixed an issue where, when viewing the Projects page, reviewers and managers were not seeing the total number of annotations in a project.
  • Fixed an issue where blank drafts were being created when annotations were submitted.
  • Fixed several issues with how annotation drafts were handled. Users will now see a more descriptive error message when trying to update a labeling configuration that is still being used in annotations or in drafts. Also, when using the Data Manager to delete all annotations, this will also delete all task drafts and annotation drafts.
  • Fixed an issue where when duplicating a project that had cloud storage, the storage sync status and number of synced items was also copied when they should be reset.
  • Fixed an issue of missing annotators from members dashboard when a performance optimization is enabled.
  • Fixed an issue where <Choice selected="true"> was not working within the Taxonomy tag.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause a blank draft to be created when using hot-keyed annotation submit.

Project-level roles for SAML/SCIM, ability to pause annotation sessions

Sep 28, 2023

New features

  • Project-level roles are now available and configurable through SAML or SCIM. By mapping user groups to project roles, you’ll have more granular access controls for your data and you can simplify permissions management for internal teams and annotators. For more information, see the HumanSignal blog and the related documentation.

    Screenshot of SCIM mapping for project roles

  • Users can now pause their annotation session so that they can take a break from annotating without it affecting their lead time scores. They can do this by selecting Submit and Exit or Update and Exit. Their work is automatically saved as a draft. For more information, see Exit a labeling flow.

    Screenshot of the Save and Exit option when labeling

Enhancements

  • Improved performance of prediction counter calculations, leading to faster response times for project pages and stats calculations. 
  • Improved dashboard load times, correcting an issue that caused projects with numerous different labels to timeout.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue where attempting to access AWS target storage resulted in a 403 error. This was fixed by allowing prefix-level bucket access.
  • Fixed an issue where an XSS vulnerability meant that a user’s cookies could be exposed when viewing our API documentation. As a result, users must now be logged in when visiting the Label Studio Enterprise API docs page or the Swagger page.
  • Fixed an issue where users’ changes to the Labeling Interface Settings were not being saved.
  • Fixed a performance issue when using mouse clicks to interact with OCR regions that have large numbers (>50) of bounding boxes.
  • Fixed an issue where Admin users who were assigned the Reviewer role in a project (using the SCIM project-role mapping) were seeing their own annotations in the review stream for the project.
  • Fixed an issue where organization-level roles rather than project-level roles were being reflected in project cards.
  • Fixed an issue to ensure that project-level role mapping is removed when the associated SCIM and SAML mappings are removed.
  • Fixed an issue with login page indexing that was preventing users from being added to projects.
  • Fixed an issue where the predictions counter was not correct when using project-level role mapping.

This section highlights the new features and enhancements in Label Studio Enterprise 2.2.0.

New features and enhancements

Label Studio Enterprise 2.2.0 introduces the following new features and enhancements.

  • Label Studio Enterprise 2.2.0 introduces the System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) version 2.0 standard. System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) is a popular protocol to manage access for services and applications across an organization. Use the SCIM guide to set up SCIM integration to manage access to Label Studio Enterprise in your organization.

    Check the following video tutorial about SCIM and Okta setup.

  • Starting with this release, as an annotator you can create a rotated bounding box with the “three point click” or “two point click” feature to annotate images.

    • First point click - Starting point of the location to draw the bounding box.
    • Second point click - Define the rotation and width of the bounding box.
    • Third point click - Draw the height of the bounding box.

    Figure 1: Two point click rectangle.
    Figure 2: Three point click rectangle.

    After you create the bounding box, you can do the following:

    • Adjust it by moving the anchors or edges to the desired location on the canvas.
    • Determine that the orientation of the bounding box is effected.
    • See the orientation of the bounding box and determine the direction during the creation process.
  • This release includes the Last updated by column in Data Manager with information of updated_at - updated_by, annotator/reviewer (the person who made the last modifications for any of the annotations in this task) at updated_at time.


    Figure 3: "Last updated by" column in Data Manager.
  • This release introduces the go-back functionality (< icon) that allows you to navigate back to the previous task through the review stream.


    Figure 4: Go back to the previous task.
  • Starting with this release, you can create a Lead Time column in Data Manager with averaged lead time per task.
