AM 7.1
  • Deprecated Elasticsearch and Splunk Audit Handlers

  • Deprecated isAlive JSP Page

    Using the isAlive.jsp to determine if an instance is alive is deprecated.

    AM 7.1 includes new endpoints to determine if an instance is alive, and ready to process requests.

  • Deprecated Existing getIDPAuthnContextInfo Signature

    The existing signature for the getIDPAuthnContextInfo method of the IDPAuthnContextMapper interface is deprecated.

    AM 7.1 includes a new signature for the getIDPAuthnContextInfo method, which includes an additional parameter for the entity ID of the service provider (SP).

    Note that the deprecated method still works in AM 7.1, but you should update any code that uses it to the new four-parameter signature. The deprecated three-parameter signature will be removed in a future version of AM.
