Connect engine nodes to a more recently upgraded administrative node

NewPA-15359

Engine nodes and the replica administrative node running PingAccess 7.2.2 or later can now connect with an administrative node that’s running a later version of PingAccess.

Note:

This ability was backported from PingAccess 7.3. For more information on how to use this ability, see Connect engine nodes to a more recently upgraded administrative node in the 7.3 release notes.

Updated PingAccess client authentication logic

ImprovedPA-15229

Updated the PingAccess logic that determines which authentication method to use at runtime. This update prevents errors when Private Key JWT and Mutual TLS are the only client authentication methods that a token provider can support.

Fixed upgrade utility issue when default system encoding isn't UTF-8

FixedPA-15240

Formerly, running the upgrade utility on a system that uses non-UTF character encoding by default could result in the upgrade utility modifying non-ASCII content. This is because there are certain code flows that don’t define a character set to use when transferring data between the source and target version of PingAccess.

The upgrade utility now checks if the character set on the content type header is set to null. If it is, the upgrade utility changes the character set to UTF-8.
