For performance reasons, PingFederate 8.0 started using the
data type instead of the
VARCHAR data type.
This information is applicable only to customers who have configured Log4j or Log4j 2 to write log messages to database tables on Microsoft SQL Server.
The table-setup scripts (targeted for Microsoft SQL Server) in the <pf_install>/pingfederate/server/default/conf/log4j/sql-scripts directory have been updated. If you are upgrading from PingFederate 7.3 or an earlier version, consider updating the data type in the applicable tables accordingly for performance reasons.
