What's new

Single Logout, Find user by Email, Disable password login

Upgrade consideration

Under certain circumstances, it can happen that the parameter Logout Binding in the IdP-configuration is set to POST or REDIRECT. It should be set to DISABLE by default.

Please check this value for any configured IdP and set it to DISABLED unless you explicitly want to enable single logout.

  • SAML authentications created by the Addon are signed by default now. We recommend that you update the Addon's SAML Metadata on your IdP after upgrading to insure that the Addon's signing certificate is available.
  • The "disable nosso" feature updated the page templates. If you have modified the page templates, the "Login with username and password" link won't disappear from the login pages if you enable this feature.
  • We introduced the new JSON configuration version 4. Automated scripts using the undocumented PUT /config REST API might have to be modified:
    • Breaking: An IdP's logoutBinding must be set to "DISABLED" unless single logout is to be enabled. In that case, the postBindingLogoutURL or redirectBindingLogoutURL must be set. During migration, we set it to DISABLED if both these fields are empty.
    • Added: Several fields have been added to accommodate the above mentioned changes. Their defaults reflect the current behavior, so you only need to modify them if you want to change this behavior.

Data Center

No special considerations apply for this update, general Datacenter installations guidelines apply.
