What's New#

RESTful (https)#

oxd 3.1.1 includes a new component called the oxd-https-extension. The extension is included out-of-the-box in the oxd Linux packages--it simply needs to be started. With the oxd-https-extension, applications can make RESTful calls to your oxd server over the web.

UMA 2.0#

Gluu Server and oxd 3.1.1 are the first commercially supported IAM server and clients to implement the UMA 2.0 Grant for OAuth 2.0 Authorization and Federated Authorization specifications. UMA 2.0 now aligns completely with OAuth 2.0. It also re-defines the claims gathering flow, enabling developers to implement multi-step consent, user-interactions, and stepped-up authentication flows.


oxd 3.1.1 now supports in-memory or redis caching of data to improve throughput for OpenID Connect and UMA clients.

Easy Upgrades#

oxd 3.1.1 includes an auto-migration process to transfer your existing oxd JSON files to your new oxd 3.1.1 server(s).

Please review the following legacy compatibility considerations while evaluating your upgrade path to oxd 3.1.2:

  • UMA 2.0: Supported in oxd 3.1.2 and Gluu Server 3.1.1

  • UMA 1.0.1: Not supported in oxd 3.1.1or Gluu Server 3.1.1

  • OpenID Connect: Supported in all versions of oxd and Gluu Server

  • Pricing: If you upgrade existing oxd installations to oxd 3.1.1, the new per application billing model described above will take effect. This could have an impact on your monthly bill
