Connect2id server 14.8.1

This maintenance release of the Connect2id server addresses issues related to the SQL database connector, which is now optimised to conserve memory when purging expired entres. An issue slowing down the server startup with Oracle Databases is also fixed. If you have a deployment that uses an SQL database and deals with significant traffic updating to 14.8.1 is recommended.

Updating to 14.8.1 can be skipped if you have a Connect2id server deployment that uses DynamoDB.

Release notes

14.8.1 (2023-11-02)

Resolved issues

  • Updates the expired entry reaper for Connect2id server deployments with an SQL database to conserve memory by employing paged key set seek, in sets of up to 100 SQL records and interleaving the record deletion between the pages. Intended to prevent OOM errors in deployments with a very large number of sessions and other expiring objects (issue server/935).

  • Optimises the dataSource.createTableIfMissing implementation for Oracle Databases when the queried table has a very large number of records, causing Connect2id server startup to pause for times longer than 1 minute at startup. The issue is addressed by switching from LIMIT 0 to LIMIT 1 in the query to obtain the table's column names (issue server/933).

  • The expired entry reaper in Connect2id server deployments with an SQL database must not terminate when an unchecked parse or another exception is thrown when parsing a retrieved SQL record. This may occur in SQL records manipulated outside the Connect2id server APIs. Instead, the exception must be swallowed and an error with the offending SQL record logged. This is now done with an IS0141 log error (issue sql-store/23).

  • Fixes the default value and parsing of the optional sessions form parameter of the /session-store/rest/v2/purge resource (issue session-store/95).
