The August 2021 update of the Spider Software Services version 1.2108.1.1558 is now available. 

All components are available in our Product and License Center.

Please note, the Recognition module and also all Spider Data Collector endpoints must be updated.

Highlights

  • * The communication components of the Spider Data Collector and the recognition module are updated. Extensive security improvements are included. It was converted to openSSL 1.1 and a new authentication method was used. These changes mean that all Spider Data Collector endpoints have to be updated, otherwise they can no longer send data to the recognition servers.
  • * A new version of Columbus/Spider Inventory is being delivered (version: 7.6.5.21214). The Inventory Agent can install itself automatically if this is set. The inventory scanner must be updated manually.
  • * The Adobe Portal Connector has been enhanced to support TLS. This can be switched on with the parameter "TLS = true" when calling the connector.
  • * Fix: When importing Adobe portal data, the import of users could be aborted if e-mail addresses are assigned to several user data records. This has now been fixed.

* These entries were added after the release announcement.
