The Utoolity team is pleased to present Identity Federation for AWS 1.2 – this release adds configurable credentials expiration to further increase control over your security footprint.



Configurable credentials expiration

Configure the expiration time of granted temporary security credentials to further increase control over your security footprint - an administrator can configure the maximum number of seconds temporary credentials based on a connector are valid, any client can either use this maximum or further reduce it even.

  • Stories

    • IFAWS-121 - As an administrator, I want to configure credentials expiration so that I can further control the security footprint


Release 1.2.1

Highlights of this release:

Support for the AWS GovCloud (US) Region (experimental)

The AWS GovCloud (US) Region is an API compatible, but otherwise isolated AWS region designed to allow US government agencies and customers to move sensitive workloads into the cloud by addressing their specific regulatory and compliance requirements).

Support for regions in the AWS GovCloud (US) partition is an opt-in Labs Feature:

  • The AWS GovCloud (US) partition provides the following regions: AWS GovCloud (US-East) – us-gov-east-1, AWS GovCloud (US) – us-gov-west-1

  • This partition requires dedicated credentials, see How do Government agencies, contractors and customers access the AWS GovCloud (US) Region?: "Customers cannot sign up for AWS GovCloud (US) through the traditional, online AWS sign up process. AWS must engage with the customer directly to sign an agreement specific to the AWS GovCloud (US) Region. [...]"

  • Due to being a non US company, we are not currently in the position to test this app with the AWS GovCloud (US) Region directly. However, the API is compatible in general and we have done our best to address the documented differences - please get in touch if things do not work as intended, we are very interested to collaborate on the necessary adjustments.

This release addresses the following issues:

  • Improvements

    • IFAWS-199 - Enable 'AWS GovCloud (US)' support as a labs feature

  • Bugs

    • IFAWS-216 - Fix exception on Add-on initialization when using a MySQL backend

    • IFAWS-213 - Fix exception on connector save when using a PostgreSQL backend

    • IFAWS-191 - Fix unpleasant visuals of 'Maximum Duration' widget/help
