Identity and Access Management

Fixed issues

  • Problems when logging in without deleting cache of your browser.

Known issues

  • Inviting a user via User Management UI or Identity Management service sporadically fails and will sometimes return an internal error. Please try again to invite the user.

  • After modifying the authorization of a User via Identity Management Service, the change is not immediately visible. The User must then close the browser and login again.

  • When you logged in via CES authentifcation in some cases it might happen that the logout fails. In this case please close the browser without logging out.

IoT and Storage Services: File Service

Known issues

  • For security reasons a strict timeout is enforced. Currently this leads to the situation that the size of a file which can be uploaded/ downloaded depends on the network bandwidth at client side.

  • When uploading files to the File Service, a file name must not contain blank spaces. Blank spaces in the file name will prevent the file form being stored.

IoT and Storage Services: Time Series Service

Known issues

  • A limit on retrieving raw time series data is currently not enforced. We recommend paying attention to the amount of data requested; this might lead to increased response times.

  • When sending time series data to a non-existing entity, the service returns a 500 error code instead of a 404 error code.

  • The maximum payload size of a message sent to time series service as part of a PUT request cannot exceed 1 MB.

  • The service will never return more than 2000 records in a response

  • When creating or updating Aspects on an Asset, it might take some time (up to 30 minutes) until this Aspect or respective changes are available on the Time Series Service. The service returns a 404 (Not Found) as long as the changes are not completely propagated.
