Connect2id server 12.17

This September release of the Connect2id server updates the revocation web API to enable callers to conserve server and network resources. When revoking the tokens and persisted consent for a given subject (end-user) or client the server will return all matching long-lived (persisted) authorisations that have been deleted. For a revoked client with thousands or millions of end-users this can potentially result in the streaming of megabytes of removed authorisations into the HTTP response. In such cases or whenever the revocation is not interested in what authorisations are affected or their details, a new quiet=true query parameter can now be applied to omit the streaming and return a HTTP 204 No Content response.

Example use of the quiet=true query parameter when revoking a client with ID zaqu4ong:

POST /authz-store/rest/v3/revocation?quiet=true HTTP/1.1
Authorization: Bearer ztucZS1ZyFKgh0tUEruUtiSTXhnexmd6
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded


The HTTP 204 No Content response:

Status Code: 204 No Content

The authorisation session API and the token exchange plugin received two bug fixes.

Release notes

12.17 (2022-09-14)


  • /authz-store/rest/v2/revocation

    • Adds support for an optional "quiet" query parameter when posting a revocation. When set to quiet=true an HTTP 204 No Content response will be returned; if any authorisation(s) were matched by the revocation parameters and removed they will not be returned in the response body.

Resolved issues

  • The authorisation session web API must not set the "required_sub" parameter in the authentication prompt to the end-user ID when the Connect2id server is configured with alwaysPromptForAuth=true and the end-user has an active session. This resulted in a incorrect OpenID Connect login_required error if the current end-user is (re)authenticated to another subject (end-user ID) as a result of the authentication prompt. The fix corrects the behaviour so that the original session is closed and a new one with the new subject (end-user ID) is started (issue server/781).

  • The op.grantHandler.tokenExchange.webAPI.actorToken.types configuration property of the token exchange grant handler plugin must support setting of no actor token types accepted. The default value must also be none (issue grant-handlers-web/1).
