Release Notes

  • CORE-11339: resolves various reports of API response behavior changes. It restores the following expectations:
    • An NVP response will be provided if the request does not specify a response type and the response results do not contain nested data.
    • An XML response will be provided if the request does not specify a response type and the response results contain nested data.
  Please note that the NVP response type, while currently supported, is marked as deprecated. We highly recommend that you utilize the JSON response type format for all you API calls. As well, we encourage you to explicitly request the desired response type for consistent response structures across all your API calls and to avoid conditional processing.
  • CORE-11321: Based on user feedback, we have updated the amount of information presented to authenticated Admins when an error page is rendered.
    • If the authenticated Admin has the "Configure General Settings" permission, a stacktrace of the error will be provided regardless if Display Errors is enabled. Additional documentation reference is noted that links to the Troubleshooting Guide for common mitigation and error resolution.
    • For authenticated Admins that do not have this permission, a stacktrace is rendered when Display Errors is enabled. Additional documentation reference is noted that links to how one can enable Display Errors for further context.
    • If the error is encountered prior to startup and authentication processes, general error handling will occur since such conditional observations are not viable.
  • Additional enhancements have been made in the core error handling to mitigate the erroneous halt of normal functionality under non-critical conditions in various system and contextual environments.
