Crowd 4.0 release notes

Improving authentication performance for multiple directories

Support for JDK 11

Improved performance of nested groups

Improving authentication performance for multiple directories

You can speed up authentication by adjusting the priority of cached directories. If the authenticating user does not exist in any of your cached directories, Crowd will move him to the end of the queue. This helps Crowd to concentrate on the right directories and save your users some time.

To enable this feature, go to Application > Directory mappings

Support for JDK 11 is here

Java SE 11 is the latest long term support release, so you can get updates and fixes for longer.

Improved performance of nested groups

Crowd now handles the hierarchies of nested groups even more efficiently. This small change brings significant performance improvements to user authentication, authorization checks, and the User Groups screen.
