This section lists new features in this release. Additionally, this release includes all features in the Edge UI, Edge Management, and Portal releases listed in Included Releases.
In addition to the following enhancements, this release also contains multiple usability, performance, security, and stability enhancements.
TLS connection information now available in API proxies
During a request to an API proxy through a virtual host that supports TLS, Edge can capture information about the TLS connection. Your API proxy can now access that information through flow variables to perform additional analysis and validation. See Accessing TLS connection information in an API proxy for more.
This release contains Zookeeper 3.4.14.
Availability of the Drupal 8 portal, and EOL of Drupal 7
Drupal 8 has succeeded Drupal 7 as the Apigee-recommended developer portal for Private Cloud. Because Drupal 7 itself will reach the end of its long term support in November, 2021, the Apigee modules for Drupal 7 will not be supported as of November, 2021. While still available, the install/upgrade scripts for Drupal 7 should no longer be used and will be removed in a future release.
To learn about the Drupal 8 modules that integrate with Apigee, see: Build your portal using Drupal 8.

This section lists the Private Cloud bugs that were fixed in this release. Additionally, this release includes all bug fixes in the Edge UI, Edge Management, and Portal releases shown in Included Releases.
Message Processor fails to load environments when keystores are configured with similar names or aliases.We have fixed a regex lookup conflict when loading keystores that have similar naming convention. This was causing the Message Processor to fail to load environments associated to the keystore, or fail to start when multiple conflicting keystores were returned during the lookup.
QPid dependency conflict while installing patchThe correct version of QPid is now installed.
Cache memory limiter not respecting max L1 cache sizeThe Cache memory limiter now respects max L1 cache size.
Backup scripts failingThe backup procedure has been updated based on the updated backup scripts.
QPid server sending extra log messagesThe QPid server no longer sends extra log messages.
Backup of Postgresql not storing SSO informationPostgresql backup now storing SSO information.
apigee-nginx version not upgraded.apigee-nginx version now upgraded correctly.
`Try the new UI` message no longer appearingThe UI no longer displays the `Try the new UI` message.
Apigee SmartDocs API VulnerabilityUpdated Apigee SmartDocs proxy to address security vulnerability. See the SmartDocs installation procedure for further information and required steps.
Postgres backup script failsThe Postgres backup script now works correctly.
Various security fixesFixes for security issues, including #111390246.
High rate of Router to Message Processor timeoutsThis issue has been resolved.
SSO setup script failureAn issue was fixed where using file-scheme URLs caused SSO setup script failure.
JMX portsJMX ports should not be open to external access, only to internal servers.
Intermittent 404s for runtime traffic due to race conditionFixed a race condition during MP bootstrap which led to some proxies not being deployed correctly.
OpenLDAP corruption during upgradeThis issue has been resolved.
DataAccessException in multiple data center configurationsIn multiple data center configurations, if one datastore becomes unavailable, you no longer see the DataAccessException error.
FormatMessage set to false in MessageLogging policy not workingYou can now set FormatMessage to false in the MessageLogging policy.
The following table lists known issues in this release:
JWT validation fails
JWT validation fails for RSA keys smaller than 2048 bits.
Workaround:Ensure that your keys are 2048 bits or larger.
Mint rating servers memory leak
When a new Qpid instance is registered in an mxgroup, the queues build without consumers, which results in the queue depth growing until it uses all available resources.
Message Processor backup not backing up the correct set of files
Run the backup a second time and it should back up the correct set of files.
Increased Cache miss ratio after upgrade
After upgrade to release 4.50.00, proxies may exhibit an increased cache miss ratio. These misses may be accompanied by increased error messages in the MP logs similar to:
InvalidClassException when fetching cps cache entry from second level - com.apigee.jsonparser.LinkedJSONObject; local class incompatible: stream classdesc serialVersionUID = -8575741446425131573, local class serialVersionUID = 752634431212433936. Considering it as cache miss.
None. The cache hit ratio is expected to stabilize over time.
HTTP 408 response for GET request with empty body and Content-Encoding: gzip.
An API client will receive a 408 Timeout response when it makes a GET request with the header
