Area

Description of Change

Reference

Authentication Server

Improvements have been made to the authentication process to increase the resilience of the Hub application. These changes involve the retry mechanism that operates if the Authentication Server becomes unavailable.

  • A 15 minute retry timeout has been added to the authentication process. This allows more time to authenticate if the Authentication Server becomes temporarily unavailable.
  • The retry mechanism now includes a delay between each retry attempt, starting at three seconds and increasing to 15 seconds. Previously, there was no delay between attempts, and the authentication process failed after five retries.
