Release Notes

What’s in this document?

The Ontotext Platform release notes provide information about the features and improvements in each release, as well as various bug fixes. Ontotext Platform’s versioning scheme is based on semantic versioning. The full version is composed of three components:

major.minor.patch

e.g., 1.2.3 where the major version is 1, the minor version is 2, and the patch version is 3.

Note

Releases with the same major and minor versions do not contain any new features. Releases with different patch versions contain fixes for bugs discovered since the previous minor. New or significantly changed features are released with a higher major or minor version.

Semantic Objects 4.1.8

Released: 29 March 2024

Important

Semantic Objects 4.1.8:

  • Improvements

Note

Semantic Objects version 4.1.8 requires:
  • GraphDB version 10.2 or later
  • FusionAuth version 1.28
  • Chart components require K8S version 1.22

You can find a list with all external dependencies here.

Improvements

Added the capability to update the schema configured for preloading on service start. This feature is enabled with a new configuration, soml.preload.forceUpdate, which needs to be set to true. Please note that changes made to the schema through the service between service restarts will be overridden by the preload schema.

Also, introduced the ability to change the bound schema on service start to the configured schema for preloading, regardless of the previous bound schema. This functionality can be enabled with the configuration soml.preload.forceBind set to true.

With both of the above configurations in place, the Semantic Objects service can now be configured and updated seamlessly, without requiring manual input, via deployment tools like Docker or Helm.

  • Added support for user roles to be access via the ${ctx.claims.authorities} key. It will always return a list so it should be used with IN and NIN expressions only. An example query could be found here: here.
  • Added support for claim values that have multiple values either in the token or separated by a comma or semicolon like so: value1, value2; value3. In this case the only supported expression are IN and NIN. In order this to be triggered the claim key should be defined as: ${ctx.claims.multi_val_claim+}. An example query could be found here: here.
  • Added new SOML configuration option exposeSomlInGraphQL. It could be used to enable the outputting a directives, in the GraphQL schema, that describes the types and properties based on the SOML information. Disabled by default.
  • Added an option to configure the name of the default RBAC management role. This is done with a service configuration under the name security.rbacManagementRole with default value SchemaRBACAdmin.
  • Added logic that will create the missing RBAC managment admin role in the /soml/soml-rbac schema.
  • SPARQL template arguments are now synchronized in the whole type hierarchy where the particular property is present
  • Updated full IRI conversion to short IRI to use the IRI as is when is unable to resolve prefix instead of using vocab_prefix by default.
  • Improved default RBAC role processing so that the default role will be used if none of the user roles match any of the configured roles.
  • Allowed changing the name of the default RBAC role in the SOML config section with the following keys: defaultRole and defaultIntegrationRole. These are the roles that will be assigned if the user does not have any roles or none of the roles found in the token match the one in the schema for the default GraphQL access and the external API integration roles respectively.
  • Added new monitoring timer for the total request processing under the name of soaas.query.

In this release of Semantic Objects, there are no functional changes. However, noteworthy updates are related to the dependency upgrades for GraphQL Java and Json Web Token (JWT) handling.

Regarding GraphQL Java, version 20.0 initially introduced stricter argument validation, which was later reverted in version 20.3 . The current version included in Semantic Objects, 20.4 , also addresses the Guava vulnerability CVE-2023-2976

Regarding Java Json Web Token (JJWT) handling library, the update brings in more stringent handling of secret keys used for decrypting token information. The previous implementation lacked sufficient enforcement of keys for the decryption algorithms. For additional details about the minimum key lengths, please refer to the Signature Algorithms Keys section on the Java JWT library page.

Semantic Objects Improvements

The release includes the following list of new features, improvements and bug fixes:

  • Added support for GraphDB 10 cluster and removed the support for GraphDB 9. This also includes changes to configurations. The new configurations could be found in the cluster config section.

More information about the supported types could be found at Datatypes section.
  • Optimized GraphQL schema generation to no longer includes scalars and other related inputs for types that are not used in the GraphQL schema. For schemas that do not use great variety of types it will greatly reduce the schema and the service memory requirement.
  • Updated mutation validators to properly report evaluation errors like insufficient security permissions or lack of network connectivity for example.
  • Enforced mutation argument validation to properly terminate the request in case of invalid input data for example xsd:dateTimeStamp field missing a time zone offset.
  • Improved extensions and plugin loading. Spring beans could also be loaded as plugins. All plugins now could benefit from injection of defined extensions.
  • Reorganized loggers so that SPARQL queries and mutations are logged in separate loggers sparql.query and sparql.update respectively. Also consolidated several GraphQL related loggers in a single one named graphql.
  • Updated query and mutation preloading to properly work with enabled security.
  • Removed support for MongoDB as SOML schema store option and all related configurations.
  • Removed the migration support from Mongo to rdf4j schema store and related configurations. If you are using older version of Semantic Objects migrate your schemas using the latest 3.x version and then deploy the 4.x version.
