Version 2023.1.0 (HTTP Rest Component)

Breaking Changes

  • DI-6697: The INTEGRATION Rdbms to Http template ignored the enableHostnameVerification and enableCertificateVerification options. They are now properly handled. As they are enabled by default, you might experience certificate verification errors if you are using APIs with self-signed certificates. In this situation, disable these parameters.

Feature improvements

  • DI-2556: In the metadata, in the Standard finger tab, the Keystore and Truststore parameters have been added. These parameters can be used to define custom keystore and truststore during REST API calls.

  • DI-4732: The OUT_FILE_NAME parameter has been added to the INTEGRATION Rdbms to HTTP template.

  • DI-5334: The Reverse REST and HTTP Security wizards have been moved from the designer to the HTTP REST component.

  • DI-5345: When creating HTTP REST metadata, the text/csv can now be select in the Content-Type Header list.

  • DI-5758: When performing a selective reverse, a progress bar is displayed to inform the user that an operation is running.

  • DI-6720: The Keystore and Truststore parameters are supported in wizards.

  • DI-5389: The metadata reverse-engineering has been improved.

Bug fixes

  • DI-4150: The URL field in reverse page does not resize correctly when the string is too long.

  • DI-4497: Wizards do not propose a scroll bar on small screens or when resizing them. This makes certain fields inaccessible.

  • DI-5031: When using the Reverse REST wizard inside WSDL Metadata, the NTLM security nodes are not visible.

  • DI-5072: When reversing an Open API 3 definition on a a file or a URL having special characters in the path, the Unable to read location error is thrown.

  • DI-5320: When creating an oauth1 security node through the dedicated wizard, the wizard ignores the default values of various lists.

  • DI-5736: The java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: io/swagger/v3/core/util/Json error is thrown when reverse-engineering some Open API definitions.

  • DI-6314: SnakeYAML - Third-party library upgrade.

  • DI-6333: HttpClient - Third-party library upgrade.

  • DI-6461: When running multiple data flows with different OAuth2 tokens, the tokens are mismatched with each other, leading to authentication errors.

  • DI-6697: The INTEGRATION Rdbms to Http template ignores the enableHostnameVerification and enableCertificateVerification options.

Version 5.3.10 (HTTP Rest Component)

Bug fixes

  • DI-6701: Passwords containing special characters are not encoded correctly when generating OAuth2 tokens. This leads to failed authentication.

Version 5.3.9 (HTTP Rest Component)
