New Features

Resolved Issues

  • Upgraded from Tomcat v8.0.30 to Tomcat v8.0.32 to address known CVE scan report. (AB-1196)
  • Fix NTLM SSO handler regression; the Kerberos SSO Auth handlers were trying to handle the negotiation header instead of honoring the NTLM header. (EN-275)
  • Fix Provision Content Assignment(s) where after provisioning an item to a large number of roles; there was a runtime error when sending the event. The provisioning was stored; but it appeared to be broken. (EN-270)
  • Fix in BaseTrustedLoginRequestProcessor enhanced to handle systems that have a PasswordPolicy configured. Note: TrustedLoginProcessors do not store passwords; so we should have disabled the PasswordPolicy validation on the user creation request. (EN-276)
  • Fix BaseTrustedLoginRequestProcesor to handle updates to create session API calls. (EN-276)

Known Issues

  • The Validate Session Filter, added in 2.6.1, will redirect any unauthenticated request to the login page. This was added as a security enhancement. If you see this behavior and want the page to be accessible, you must add an allowed path to the custom configuration file.
