Beta features

  • React-based console application

    Includes 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.

    To try out the React-based console, start WSO2 Identity Server, and access the following URL: https://localhost:9443/console.

  • Tenant-qualified URLs

    Provides 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

    The CORS configurations can be made at the application level and enforced at the tenant level.
