1.11.0 Release Notes

Charles Hasegawa edited this page Aug 1, 2022 · 4 revisions

WARNING when upgrading to v1.11.x

Due to Open SAML library changes, min and max refresh values can no longer be "empty"/null by default in the database and must also be legal in conjunction with each other (ie min < max). The simplest upgrade path was therefore determined to be to reset these values for all entries in the database to match the default values the OpenSAML library uses of MIN = 1 minute, MAX = 4 hours.

BEFORE upgrading, please be sure to revisit your saved values and then reset as needed after your upgrade. The Shib IDP UI now requires that both fields have a valid, non-zero value. Please update any:

  • Filesystem Metadata Resolver
  • File Backed Http Metadata Resolver
  • Resource Backed Metadata Resolver

By using the SHIB-IDP-UI tool itself to ensure the settings are accepted and proper.

Updated SWAGGER documentation to using springdoc-openapi-ui (v3). When ShibUI is running, swagger api documentation is now generated for all(most) of the public apis of the controllers.
