You can check the RPM versions you currently have installed, to see if they need to be updated, by entering:

apigee-all version

To update your installation, perform the following procedure on the Edge nodes:

  1. On all Edge nodes:

    1. Clean the Yum repos:
      sudo yum clean all
    2. Download the latest Edge 4.50.00 bootstrap_4.50.00.sh file to /tmp/bootstrap_4.50.00.sh:
      curl https://software.apigee.com/bootstrap_4.50.00.sh -o /tmp/bootstrap_4.50.00.sh
    3. Install the Edge 4.50.00 apigee-service utility and dependencies:
      sudo bash /tmp/bootstrap_4.50.00.sh apigeeuser=uName apigeepassword=pWord

      where uName:pWord are the username and password you received from Apigee. If you omit pWord, you will be prompted to enter it.

    4. Update the apigee-setup utility:
      sudo /opt/apigee/apigee-service/bin/apigee-service apigee-setup update
    5. Use the source command to execute the apigee-service.sh script:
      source /etc/profile.d/apigee-service.sh
  2. Update the apigee-validate utility on the Management Server:
    /opt/apigee/apigee-service/bin/apigee-service apigee-validate update
  3. Update the apigee-provision utility on the Management Server:
    /opt/apigee/apigee-service/bin/apigee-service apigee-provision update
  4. Update all Cassandra nodes:

    /opt/apigee/apigee-setup/bin/update.sh -c cs -f configFile

    where configFile specifies the configuration file that you used to install Apigee Edge for Private Cloud. For example, /opt/silent.conf.

  5. On all Edge nodes, execute the update.sh script for the edge process. To do this, execute the following command on each node:
    /opt/apigee/apigee-setup/bin/update.sh -c edge -f configFile
  6. Execute the update.sh script for SSO on all nodes. On each node, execute the following command:
    /opt/apigee/apigee-setup/bin/update.sh -c sso -f configFile
  7. If you are using Apigee mTLS, follow the procedure described in Upgrade Apigee mTLS.

    For more information, see Introduction to Apigee mTLS.

Supported software

This release of Apigee Edge Private Cloud supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux version (Intel 64-bit) 7.9 and CentOS (Intel 64-bit) 7.9.

Deprecations and retirements

No new deprecations or retirements.

New Features

This release introduces the following new features:

  • A new installer option, 'mt', for installing the Management server separately from the Edge UI and OpenLDAP (issue 175793014). See Specifying the components to install.
  • An L1 cache expiry on a Message Processor, which specifies the time-to-live (TTL) of an entry in L1 cache. Previously you could only specify the TTL of L2 cache entries. See Set L1 cache expiry on a Message Processor.
  • An enhanced version of apigee-provision that includes a new delete-user option. Run apigee-service apigee-provision delete-user -h for help in using the option.

Security issues fixed

The following is a list of known security issues that have been fixed in this release. To avoid these issues, install the latest version of Edge Private Cloud.

CVE Description

In Apache Cassandra, all versions prior to 2.1.22, 2.2.18, 3.0.22, 3.11.8 and 4.0-beta2, it is possible for a local attacker without access to the Apache Cassandra process or configuration files to manipulate the RMI registry to perform a man-in-the-middle attack and capture user names and passwords used to access the JMX interface. The attacker can then use these credentials to access the JMX interface and perform unauthorised operations. Users should also be aware of CVE-2019-2684, a JRE vulnerability that enables this issue to be exploited remotely.


A flaw was found in the way the DES/3DES cipher was used as part of the TLS/SSL protocol. A man-in-the-middle attacker could use this flaw to recover some plaintext data by capturing large amounts of encrypted traffic between TLS/SSL server and client if the communication used a DES/3DES based ciphersuite.
