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

    /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. Update Postgres nodes (master and standby):
    /opt/apigee/apigee-setup/bin/update.sh -c ps -f /opt/silent.conf
  6. On all Edge nodes, execute the update.sh script for the edge process:
    /opt/apigee/apigee-setup/bin/update.sh -c edge -f configFile
  7. Execute the update.sh script for SSO on all nodes:
    /opt/apigee/apigee-setup/bin/update.sh -c sso -f configFile
  8. Execute the update.sh script for the UI on all nodes:
    /opt/apigee/apigee-setup/bin/update.sh -c ui -f configFile

Changes to supported software

Deprecations and retirements

There are no new deprecations or retirements in this release.

New features

This release introduces the following new features:

A new pop-up window warns you of end of life (EOL) dates for Edge for Private Cloud

Edge for Private Cloud customers will start seeing warning messages displayed six month prior to the installed version's EOL date. The EOL message will be shown once per browser session: if you close the tab or browser, the session will be lost. If you then re-open Apigee in a browser, the message will be displayed again.

New option to log out users when their passwords are changed

A new flag was added to apigee.feature.clearSessionOnPasswordUpdate, which lets you configure whether users are logged out after you change their password. The default is that users are not logged off.

New flag to set TLS version for SMTP

A new flag has been added to mail.smtp.ssl.protocols, which specifies the SSL protocol that are enabled for SMTP connections. This feature lets you configure SSL protocols based on your security requirements.

Configure forward proxy.

The following flags have been added, which let you configure a forward proxy:

  • http.proxyHost
  • http.proxyPort
  • http.proxyUser
  • http.proxyPassword

By default the values of the flags are empty.

Enhanced pg-data-purge script to purge parent fact tables from analytics

To run the script, enter the following command:

/opt/apigee/apigee-service/bin/apigee-service apigee-postgresql pg-data-purge org_name env_name number_of_days_to_retain [Delete-from-parent-fact - N/Y] [Confirm-delete-from-parent-fact - N/Y]

The script has the following options:

  • Delete-from-parent-fact Default : No. Will also delete data older than retention days from parent fact table.
  • Confirm-delete-from-parent-fact. Default: No. If No, the script will prompt for confirmation before deleting data from parent fact. Set to Yes if the purge script is automated.

Option to change the user label in the login page

A new flag, apigee.feature.customLoginUserLabel allows you to configure the user label in the login page based on their preference. The default is Email address.
