When applying the resource-based routing policy, you can now route requests based on actions and methods as well as resources from an Apiary specification. If you are configuring it manually, you can also now route requests on methods and method+path combinations in addition to paths. See Apply Resource-Based Routing Policies.

Gateway installation

If the installed version of your gateway is 18.4.3 or later, there is no need to re-install the gateway for 19.1.3.

Release 19.1.1 - January 2019

Feature Description

Outbound WSS Username Token Policy

This new policy allows you to enable an end-user identity to be passed over multiple hops before reaching the destination web service. See Apply Outbound WSS Username Token Policies.

Inbound WSS Username Token Policy

This new policy allows you to enforce verification of credentials sent within the SOAP payload and allow only authorized users to access APIs. See Apply Inbound WSS Username Token Policy.

Release 18.4.5 - December 2018

There were no new features in release 18.4.5. This release contained internal infrastructure updates and bug fixes.

Bug number Description
28943090 - APIs and Plans pages time out in Deveoper Portal The query was optimized to reduce the number of IDCS calls and make the query faster.
28957876 - remove "links" as fields in API list page When rendering the API list page, REST calls to /plans and /apis are made. In both cases, the field "links" was included, explicitly for /apis and implicitly for /plans. The REST call to /plans was updated to pass ?fields=id to ensure the links are not looked into, and REST call to /apis was updated to remove "links" as a field to return.
28642385 - Some analytics data did not allow the time to display in the local time zone Charts and tables in Analytics will now display in the local time zone, not the platform time zone.
28881998 - Republish button in Plan tab is extra Plans have no iterations, so any change to the plan is immediately visible in the Developer Portal. The Republish button is uneccessary and is removed.
28925217 - Remove roles from grants pages and dialogs The queries for grants took a long time to execute due to the role parts of the queries. The query parameters for roles and the Role columns were removed from the UI.
28963833 - Show/Hide navigation menu doesn't open in Internet Explorer 11 The navigation menu now opens in Internet Explorer 11.
28883652 - Redesign the Requests by Resource grid to scroll the data virtually Queries on the Gateway analytics page were very slow, or hung up. To resolved this, auto refresh was removed and there is now a Refresh button. Also, the grids have been redesigned to "virtually scroll" the data.
28948363 - Application-based routing not working as expected after release 18.4.3 The application selection drop-down list now shows all available applications.

If an API uses an Apiary specification, you now have the option of configuring the resources using actions from the API specification or configuring them manually in the Interface Filtering and Method Mapping policies. See Applying Interface Filtering Policies and Applying Method Mapping Policies.
