9.5 Release Notes

Upgrade Notes

  • A by-product of introducing Proxy SP consents, is that the Consent table requires a significant update. This may increase the execution time of the Database upgrade scripts.  We can provide a DB script that will remove all expired consents, decreasing the duration of the upgrade.
    There is now also a visual indication on the upgrade page that the upgrade is still ongoing, or finished.
  • HTTP/2 will be removed from the installer options as nginx/openresty confirmed, due to issues with http/2, they deactivated it for some ngx api calls.  This is why we see the response "http2 requests not supported yet" when we hit a call to one of these APIs.  We will monitor the issue further on nginx, but until then this will be disabled in the next releases of TB installer.

Highlights

Certificate Management

Several important additions have been made to certificates, facilitating a more secure handling of the private keys and certificates.

New Workflow Designer

This feature is added as Experimental. To use, please enable "Experimental Features" in the Settings.

The new workflow designer will ultimately replace TBA, but is still considered experimental functionality in this release, and it is not meant for use in Production environments.

  • Overriding properties
    Overriding properties allow to define different values to certain properties when exporting a configuration.
  • Server Management
    Allows the definition of servers which will execute the workflows. Workflows are grouped into configurations, which are in turn exported to servers.
  • Script Editor
    Some extra effort has been put into the usability of the script editor and the validation of the scripts.

Release Candidate 2

After the initial release candidate, a couple of issues were found in the OAuth Token Exchange flow.  

These changes include the handling of multiple audience and resource parameters.  Besides that, we made some improvements to the logic that validates the parameters in the request and which are passed in the resulting access tokens.

These issues required a few changes, which includes database changes and the update of some libraries.

Therefore, when installing Release Candidate 2 on an existing 9.5.0 test version, the full upgrade procedure must be followed.

  • Fixed an issue where token exchange grant would be denied if there was no consent, even if this scope did not require consent (TB-6511)
