  • Configuration API additions and enhancements:
    • Security Providers:
      API CallDescription
      GET security-provider <id>Returns all attributes of a security provider matching with given <id>.
      DELETE security-provider <id> /samlRemoves existing Available Groups from a SAML provider matching with given <id>.
      PATCH security-provider <id>Updates attributes of a provider with the given <id>.
