Notes on major changes

Distribution Set & Software Modules Locking

Key points to note:

  1. The functional parts of the Distribution Set (DS) and Software Module (SM) (software modules and artifacts respectively) cannot be changed once they are locked.

  2. Locking a DS implicitly locks its software modules.

  3. Assigning a DS to a target manually, through auto-assignment, or via rollouts will also lock it implicitly.

  4. The DS/SM can be explicitly locked using the REST API (updating DS/SM with "locked" flag true, soon available in the new UI only).

  5. The DS/SM can be unlocked using the REST API (updating DS/SM with "locked" flag false, soon available in the new UI only).

  6. There are two ways to disable implicit locking:

    • On the tenant level, by setting "implicit.lock.enabled" to false using the Tenant Configuration REST API (soon available in the new UI only).

    • On the DS level, by creating a DS tag with the name "skip-implicit-lock", "skip_implicit_lock", "SKIP_IMPLICIT_LOCK", or "SKIP-IMPLICIT-LOCK". The DS tagged with this will not be implicitly locked.

Trailing Slashes not supported as part of Spring Boot 3 migration

Because of Spring Boot 3 migration the trailing slashes are not supported anymore. See Spring MVC and WebFlux URL Matching Changes.
