We're planning to upgrade our SOA environment 12.1SP2 to 12.8 and we'd like to know if the SOA Agent 12.1SP2 will work with the Policy Server 12.8 ?
At first glance, this SOA Agent 12.1SP2 will be still supported with your Policy Server 12.8, but we strongly recommend you to upgrade the SOA Agents to the lastest version 12.52SP1CR09, referencing the EOS document : CA SOA Security Manager r12.1 (includes all Service Packs and Cumulative Releases) End of Service Announcement "While this particular End of Service does not cover these components, no new certifications for r12.1 (including all Service Packs and Cumulative Releases) for these components will be executed after December 31, 2016. CA SOA Security Manager Agent for Web Servers CA SOA Security Manager Agent for Application Servers Upgrade Paths At this time we encourage you to plan for your migration. The recommended no-charge software upgrade option for customers running CA SOA Security Manager 12.1 should upgrade to either CA Web Services Security Manager 12.51 or the more recent 12.52 release." https://support.ca.com/us/product-content/status/announcement-documents/2017/ca-soa-security-manager-r12-1-end-of-service-announcement.html Here's the link of the latest WSS Agent (former SOA Agent) : Solution Document: SS04282 https://support.ca.com/us/download-center/solution-detail.html?docid=655786&os=ANY&aparno=SS04282 Its Support Matrix CA SiteMinder Family of Products Informational Documentation Index CA SiteMinder Web Services Security 12.52 https://support.ca.com/us/product-content/recommended-reading/technical-document-index/ca-siteminder-informational-documentation-index.html Its documentation : Install Agents Web Services Security Agent for Apache-based Servers Web Services Security Agent for IIS Servers Web Services Security Agent for Oracle iPlanet Servers Web Services Security Agent for Oracle WebLogic Web Services Security Agent for IBM WebSphere https://docops.ca.com/ca-single-sign-on/12-52-sp1/en/installing/install-agents Note that you'll need to upgrade the SOA Policy Server 12.0SP2 to 12.8 in 2 phases : 1.
