Bug fixes#

Zowe installation and packaging#

  • Use of DVIPA may cause Zowe to believe that a port is not free when it is. Starting in this release, Zowe can narrow its port validation to a specific IP via $ZWE_NETWORK_VIPA_IP=some.ip or bypass the verification via $ZWE_NETWORK_VALIDATE_PORT_FREE=false. Setting this to false will still cause the servers to be unable to connect if the port is not free, but this can be a more accurate and portable setting.

API Mediation Layer#

  • Use the APIML_SECURITY_X509_ENABLED flag to properly disable client certificate authentication for SSO. (#2645) (5f32c09)
  • Enable Strict Transport Security HTTP on the Gateway service as the default. (#2575) (decf6fe)
