  • Switched to symmetric key encryption as the default encryption method for data protection. For more information, see Symmetric Key Encryption Overview.

  • Separated 'user groups' and 'roles', and introduced new role management APIs. For more information, see SCIM 2.0 REST APIs.

  • Introduced CORS management APIs. For more information, see CORS management APIs.

  • Upgraded to OpenSAML 3

  • Introduced Software Development Kits (SDKs) for Java, .Net, and Android for simple and quick integration with simple configurations. For more information, see Using SDKs.

  • Integrated with HashiCorp Vault to protect and govern secrets such as database passwords, key store passwords etc.

  • Improvements to CIAM (Customer Identity and Access Management) functionality:

Beta features

  • React-based console application with developer and administrator views to manage and maintain the features offered by WSO2 Identity Server. This is an ongoing effort to improve the user experience with the product.

  • Tenant-qualified URLs with the option of switching to tenant qualified endpoints, which consistently qualifies every URL/endpoint of WSO2 Identity Server with the tenant in a path parameter. This improves flexibility for tenant-wise sharding and branding compared to previous releases.

  • Managing CORS configurations tenant-wise is possible with this release as the CORS configurations can now be made at application level and enforced at tenant level.

Deprecated Features

  • /identity/connect/register API
  • OAuth 1.0
