EPiServer.CloudPlatform.Cms 1.6.0

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue where the health check failed with InvalidOperationException.
  • The minimum required version for Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.Profiler.AspNetCore dependency in EPiServer.CloudPlatform.Cms is increased to 2.6.0 so that the following bug no longer occurs: https://github.com/microsoft/ApplicationInsights-Profiler-AspNetCore/issues/202
  • Fixed an issue where Warmup had a default value of MaxNumberParallelRequests set to 50, which in turn configured the HttpClient used by Warmup to set MaxConnectionsPerServer to 50. This value is too large and may cause thread starvation issues. Now, this value is set to 10, and you can customize the idle timeout of connections used during warmup.
  • Fixed an issue where Microsoft.Extensions.Diagnostics.HealthChecks version was deprecated and added a lot of logs inside application insights. Now, the minor version of the Microsoft.Extensions.Diagnostics.HealthChecks is changed to 3.1.

  • Added an option to disable two cookies automatically added by Application Insights for a site visitor. Sites running on Optimizely DXP service have Application Insights enabled. Disabling the two cookies ensures that customers are GPDR compliant. Disabling the cookies stops some user tracking in Application Insights, but Page View Tracking functions normally.
