Issue/Introduction

Dollar Universe Web Services calls would fail in case the du_web_services were installed in a Tomcat Cluster with Load Balancing enabled.

The authentication token would only be accepted by the same Tomcat Node where it had been created and would be refused by the other Tomcat members.

 

Cause

Dollar Universe Web Services until version 6.10.41 could not be used in a Tomcat Cluster.

 

Environment

Release : 6.x

Component : DOLLAR UNIVERSE

Subcomponent: Web.Services

Resolution

Update to a fix version listed below or a newer version if available.

Fix version(s): 
Component: Web.Services
Dollar Universe 6.10.41 - Released 15th July 2020

Additional Information

A new format for the token can now be used (uvms_host:uvms_port:uvms_login:uvms_password), making the DUWS calls stateless (no need to invoke DUWS login before), thus making the Dollar Universe Web Services deployable across a Tomcat cluster.
