Version
9.0.0

Address Manager API v9.0.0 includes the following changes:

  • In earlier versions of Address Manager API, the REST session token had a timeout of 5 minutes. This meant that any applications connected to Address Manager via REST would be logged out after 5 minutes.

    Starting in Address Manager v9.0.0, the REST session timeout has been removed. The timeout session for applications connected to Address Manager via REST now corresponds to the Address Manager UI session. All customers connecting to Address Manager via REST must make sure to configure the Address Manager UI session to best fit the needs of their connected applications.

  • Previously, when configuring the UPDATE_POLICY DNS deployment option, policy rules ignored the name field if it was omitted from the rule declaration but a Nametype was present. Starting in Address Manager API v9.0.0, the name field must now be set based on the following rules:
    • If the Nametype is set to self, selfsub, or selfwild, the name field value must contain either the period (.) symbol or the same value as the identity.
    • If the Nametype is set to selfkrb5, selfms, subdomainms, subdomain, subdomainkrb5, tcpself, or 6to4self, the name field value must always be the period (.) symbol.
    • For all other Nametype values, the name value must be set.
    Note: If you have previously configured Update Policy rule declarations that conflict with the updated rule declarations, the name field for those rule declarations is updated to the period (.) symbol upon upgrading to Address Manager API v9.0.0.
  • The addUserGroup has been updated to include the isAdministrator property. This property can be used to define whether administrative access is given to users within the added user group.
  • Starting in Address Manager API v9.0.0, you can no longer delete IPv6 addresses that are DHCP allocated.
