    Is it just me, or are there no release notes published for platform patches?

    Hi, Michiel.

     

    You are correct.  The monthly platform patches typically do not include any release notes.  If so desired, a list of the CVEs covered by a platform patch can be obtained from the API Management support team (api-support@ca.com).  Alternatively or also, the rpm files included in a monthly platform patch can be examined by unzipped the patch file and looking in the ./com/l7tech/server/processcontroller/patching/builder/ResourcesPatchTask_1/ directory.

    Thanks for the info Gary. From other products (including CA products) I'm used to that they have release notes published for each patch. If not with the patch, then at least online somewhere. It would make it easier for us sometimes to look up if a specific fix was included in a patch when we get questions from a customer. I guess the rpm approach is the best alternative in this case.

     

    Thanks,
