Dear Customers!

We are going to upgrade flyway in our components. Flyway is used by the following components to migrate database schemes:

  • nevisIDM, nevisIDMDB
  • nevisAdapt, nevisDetect
  • nevisMeta

The new Flyway versions support freely databases no older than 5 years. This can be quite inconvenient for customers. This is the reason why we do the announcement early. The planned delivery of these changes is Aug 2023 RR.

Nevis supports MariaDB and Oracle databases. From RR Aug 2023:

  • MariaDB 10.2+ will be supported freely by Flyway.
  • Oracle 18.3+ will be supported freely by Flyway. This can affect customers who are using nevisIDM/nevisIDMDB or nevisAdapt/nevisDetect with older Oracle database.

Databases that are older than 5 years can be supported by the Teams edition of Flyway. We are going to provide options for customers who bought the Teams edition of Flyway to enter their license keys.

We hope that customers who are using old Oracle databases can plan their migrations to newer databases or schedules the payment of Flyway Teams edition.

Yours sincerely,

The Nevis Learning and Documentation Team

We are pleased to announce that the November 2023 release and its documentation is published.

Feature improvements

Starting in May 2024, the Nevis Identity Suite will switch to a six-month Rolling Release cycle, with releases in May and November. In short, fewer releases and longer support.

Nevis upgrades the runtime of all Java-based components from Java 8 to Java 17. The support of Java 17 is a major change with significant technological differences. We are committed to make the upgrade process as smooth as possible for all customers. For this reason, we will adjust the regular life cycle of several Nevis releases.

We improved the search bar of with an advanced search page, that filters results by product/component and versions.

Our work on a new Identity Suite Configuration Guide is progressing as intended. It is now partially available on our website.

If you have any feedback or questions, contact us via support.

Yours sincerely,

The Nevis Learning and Documentation Team
