uPortal 4.0.9 GA Announcement

Apereo is proud to announce uPortal 4.0.9, continuing in our regular patch releases of uPortal 4.0. This release addresses a number of minor bugs and one moderate security bug. For the security bug any user with access to user-administration would also be able to craft a URL to use the impersonation feature even if the user lacked the impersonation permission. This has been addressed via commits 3636ac and 8679f6 for those interested in applying just the fix without upgrading to 4.0.9. This release also includes two new statistics reports that show Tab and Portlet execution counts broken down by group and tab/portlet, thanks to Unicon's cooperative development program for these reporting tools. Finally a bug related to cached group and permission data has been resolved such that at login existing attribute, group, and permission information about the user is completely purged to ensure a fresh session.

Features and Changes of Note

  • [UP-3626] - Users with access to User Administration can impersonate any user regardless of "IMPERSONATE" permission settings
  • [UP-3625] - Add report for Tab Render count
  • [UP-3628] - Add report for portlet execution count

Updating from 4.0.0-4.0.5

If you have data you care about in the UP_LOGIN_EVENT_AGGREGATE table please back it up externally or rename the table before executing the following steps. db-update will drop this table.

After configuring your uPortal 4.0.8 source run:

  • ant db-update
