Crowd 3.3 Upgrade Notes
Before upgrading to Crowd 3.3, read the following sections to make sure you're aware of all the important changes. We highly recommend that you read about all the new features in the Crowd 3.3 Release Notes.
Refreshed dialect for Oracle
As the default Oracle dialect used by Crowd didn’t correctly support CLOB columns, Crowd 3.3.0 introduces a new default which correctly supports the CLOB data type. Instances that used the default Oracle dialect will be automatically migrated to the new one. If your instance is using a custom Oracle dialect, make sure that it fully supports CLOB columns or consider migrating to this Hibernate dialect:
JSESSIONID no longer supported while REST API calls
Since Crowd 3.3.4 JSESSIONID cookie will not be used to authenticate REST endpoints. Basic Auth or Crowd SSO Token Cookie (crowd.token_key) is used for such authentication instead.
To upgrade Crowd from any of the earlier versions, follow these upgrade instructions.
