Connect2id server 15.3

This Connect2id server release ships an update to the user sessions web API, to enable an individual session to be checked or retrieved without disturbing the session's max idle time expiration. To do this use the skip_last_used_update query parameter as shown in the example below:

GET /session-store/rest/v2/sessions?skip_last_used_update=true HTTP/1.1
Authorization: Bearer ztucZS1ZyFKgh0tUEruUtiSTXhnexmd6
SID: WYqFXK7Q4HFnJv0hiT3Fgw.-oVkvSXgalUuMQDfEsh1lw

This feature comes with a caveat. It is supported only in Connect2id server deployments that persist the sessions to a database or Redis. The query parameter will be ignored and have no effect in deployments configured for in-memory session storage and replication clustering.

A session related fix and improvements under the hood also took place.

About 20 dependencies across the board were bumped. The PostgreSQL JDBC driver was bumped to clear a critical CVE-2024-1597 that has been reported for the driver. The Connect2id server is not using the vulnerable JDBC configuration parameter, so deployments have not been affected.

Detailed information about the new release can be found in the notes below.

Release notes

15.3 (2024-03-05)


  • /session-store/rest/v2/

    • The sessions resource receives a new optional skip_last_used_update query parameter for GET requests for individual subject sessions. When true the internal timestamp that records the last session use will not be updated, leaving the session maximum idle time expiration unaffected. When false the last used timestamp of the session will be updated. The default value is false. Only Connect2id server deployments that persist the subject sessions to a database or Redis can skip the update of the session last used timestamp. In deployments using Infinispan in-memory replication clustering the query parameter will be disregarded and have no effect.

Resolved issues

  • Updates the SQL store connector to log the SQL transaction isolation level at INFO level at Connect2id server startup. The log message receives the IS0143 identifier (issue sql-store/38).

  • Removes a redundant ConcurrentMap.remove call in the subject session store when updating the last used timestamp of a retrieved persisted subject session with a positive max_idle value (issue session-store/97).

  • Improves the performance of the authorisation session web API, the authorisation code grant processing, the refresh token grant processing and the token introspection processing by skipping the last used timestamp update of retrieved subject sessions where appropriate (issue server/975).

  • Adds a org.apache.logging.log4j:log4j-slf4j-impl dependency to enable jOOQ query logging at DEBUG level (issue server/976).
