Genesys Pulse Release Notes
|Release Date||Release Type||Restrictions||AIX||Linux||Solaris||Windows|
This release contains the following new features and enhancements:
- HTTPS support. (WBRT-13249)
- Genesys Pulse no longer supports the encrypted form of the keystore_password property for the unofficial HTTPS activation workaround. The keystore_password property is not encrypted and can be passed as an environment variable or command line argument. See Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Encryption for details and make sure to update HTTPS configuration options accordingly.
- Genesys Pulse no longer sends user passwords in encoded form. Genesys Pulse must be used with HTTPS enabled or behind HTTPS-enabled proxy or load balancer to protect users credentials.
The isPasswordEncrypted property of the /api/session/login API request is now deprecated. API clients that were using this property should now send plain text password.
