126.96.36.199 API Manager and 188.8.131.52 Identity Release Notes - Released June 4, 2018 in EMEA and released June 5, 2018 in NA¶
Fixed the issue that would not allow users to reset an expired password and partially fixes the cross-zone login issue.
Users are now able to reset their expired passwords successfully.
Fixed the 500 Internal Server error that occurred when trying to log in with user credentials of the other zone (Cross Zone Login - US user trying to log in from Europe, or an EMEA user trying to log in from the US.)
The temporary fix will redirect the user to the correct zone (NA or EMEA), but the user is still required to re-enter the username after being redirected. (A final fix that does not require the user to re-enter the username will be included in a later release.)
184.108.40.206 Harmony Release Notes - API Gateway - May 25, 2018¶
- API Gateway: Fixed an issue in which the API Gateway was intermittently not reading the Content-Type header when it detected a 9.0 Agent.
The API Gateway 9.0 code has been fixed to read the Content-Type header properly and extract the URL encoded elements into Jitterbit variables.
- API Gateway: Fixed an issue in which the 9.0 API Gateway was not handling an overly long URL correctly and causing a 502 error.
The 9.0 API Gateway will now revert to processing URL data that is too long in the same manner as the previous versions of API Gateway.
220.127.116.11 Harmony Release Notes - Private Agent - May 30, 2018¶
- Fixed an issue in which the 9.0 Agent was not handling API-based Archive operations properly.
When an archive operation uses an API source and API target, it tells the Jitterbit engine that it should have a source and target file even though the source is not used. The process assumed that if the body should take the place of a source file, then the $jitterbit.api.request (plain text body) and $jitterbit.api.request.body.* (URL encoded body) variables would not be needed. This broke the archive operations that rely on the variables, but ignore the source. The fix is to require the $jitterbit.api.request and $jitterbit.api.request.body.* variables are always populated, even if they are not needed.
