Send more flexible decision requests with policy queries

New
With the new Policy Query API, you can now issue decision requests containing valueless and multivalued attributes to receive decisions more complex than Permit or Deny, enabling you to dynamically drive user interfaces. For more information, see Policy queries.

Cache dynamic service responses

New
To improve decision evaluation performance and reduce latency, you can cache dynamic service response values for faster retrieval on subsequent requests. When enabling caching for HTTP services, you can exclude certain headers from the service response. This prevents invalidation of the cache when values of those headers change. For more information, see Service caching.

Copy Trust Framework attribute resolvers

New
To build your authorization logic more efficiently, you can make editable copies of attribute resolvers. For more information, see Copying entities.

Disable rules in the policy tree

New
To control the granularity of policy evaluation, you can disable rules in policies. This causes the decision engine to skip disabled rules during policy evaluation and allows you more flexibility in testing and deployment of policy logic. For more information, see Creating policies and policy sets.

Added support for Apache Camel 3.21.2

Info
Although Camel services have been removed from the default PingAuthorize configuration, you can now enable Camel version 3.21.2 if your policies depend on such services. For more information, see Apache Camel availability.

Added support for Java 17 and removed support for Java 8

Info
We have added support for Java 17 and removed support for Java 8. For more information, see System requirements. For information on upgrading from a PingAuthorize instance installed with Java 8, see Upgrade considerations introduced in PingAuthorize 10.0.

Disabled SNI hostname checks by default

InfoPAZ-10754
To avoid HTTP 400 responses when SNI hostname checks fail, these checks are now disabled by default for the PingAuthorize server and Policy Editor. We added a new setup option, --disableSniHostnameChecks, to control whether PingAuthorize performs this check. For important considerations when upgrading from a previous version and attempting to reuse your configuration, see Upgrade considerations introduced in PingAuthorize 10.0.

Disabled OIDC Implicit grant flow

InfoPAZ-1795
We have disabled the OIDC Implicit flow implementation in the Policy Editor because the OAuth Working Group no longer recommends its use. In its place, you should use the Authorization Code with PKCE flow. For more information, see Configuring an OIDC provider for single sign-on requests from PingAuthorize.

Added indexes to improve database query performance

Improved
We added two database indexes to the db-cli module to improve performance when querying the CurrentEntityVersion and EnetityRelationship tables.

Fixed SCIM case-sensitivity issue

FixedPAZ-8473
We fixed an issue where requests to create SCIM entries were not always observing the case-exact=false property, leading to incorrect case-sensitivity errors.

Fixed attribute caching memory error

FixedPAZ-10643
We fixed an issue where the decision engine only checked if an attribute cache entry had expired when accessing that entry, leading to Out of Memory errors. Now, attribute caching uses the Redis library directly, allowing a unique Time to Live (TTL) for each cache entry. Redis instances invalidate cache entries once the TTL has elapsed, rather than when the entries are accessed. For more information, see Attribute caching.

Fixed missing statements array in policy testing

FixedPAZ-6335
We fixed an issue, where, in the Response tab of policy testing, the root-level statements array was not appearing if left empty in the testing scenario.

Fixed error response handling in APP WARN

FixedPAZ-10350
We fixed an issue where the HTTP Service Executor was not properly capturing error messages in the APP WARN logs from the policy information provider (PIP) endpoint.

Removed --serverRoot requirement from the check-replication-domains tool

FixedDS-47655
We fixed the check-replication-domains tool so that the --serverRoot argument is no longer required. This argument now defaults to the server's root directory.

Fixed duplication issue when running dsjavaproperties --initialize

FixedDS-45206
We fixed an issue where running dsjavaproperties --initialize would append duplicate arguments to the common.java-args in the java.properties file.

Replaced NullPointerException error for alert handlers lacking configuration

FixedDS-47455
We fixed an issue where a NullPointerException error occurred when an alert or alarm was raised, and one more of the alert handlers was not configured. An alert notification is now recorded in logs/errors instead.

Addressed inability of LDAP Request Handlers to respond to incoming client requests

FixedDS-46312
We fixed an issue where TLS timeouts prevented LDAP Request Handlers from responding to client requests. The request-handler-per-connection configuration property is now available for LDAP and LDAPS Connection Handlers.
