The following components have breaking changes compared to the previous release, or require specific actions. For more information, see the release notes of each listed component.

  • nevisAdmin 4
    • Changes to the Kubernetes Deployment.
  • nevisMeta
    • Move undocumented endpoint for getting a token in REST API V2 to a correct path and add it to the official documentation
      • Undocumented endpoint /rest/v2/modules/oauthv2/setups/<setupId>/token/<tokenId> removed
      • New endpoint /rest/v2/modules/oauthv2/setups/<setupId>/tokens/<tokenId> added
  • nevisLogRend
    • Upgraded Velocity 1.7 to 2.3, as this is a major version change there might be incompatibilities
      • Some Velocity related configuration were renamed, configuration names must be adjusted in the application configuration.
      • In case if the third party tools defined in the reference guide are used, there is a high chance the templates must be adapted. Some of those completely changed.
      • General behavior changes in how Velocity handles templates. Velocity provides some backwards compatibility flags provided which can enabled.
  • nevisAuth
    • Upgraded third party library groovy-all 2.4.12 to version 2.4.21. Although we don't expect any issues, it is recommended to do more thorough than usual testing of ScriptStates using Groovy scripts.
  • nevisIDM
    • The query REST service indexing changed, old indices need to be get rid of. For details see the release notes.
    • Custom property values only change now in the database when their values actually change.
  • nevisProxy
    • The hostname verification of the backends has been improved, and now performs additional validations.
    • The deprecated and undocumented SERVER_FDLIMIT configuration parameter has been removed. From now on, nevisProxy uses the default open files resource limit of the system.
