Kong Gateway 3.5.x
Introduced the new configuration field read_body_for_logout with a default value of false.
This change alters the behavior of logout_post_arg in such a way that it is no longer considered,
unless read_body_for_logout is explicitly set to true.
This adjustment prevents the Session plugin from automatically reading request bodies for
logout detection, particularly on POST requests.
Kong Gateway 3.2.x
The plugin has been updated to use version 4.0.0 of the lua-resty-session library. This introduced several new features, such as the possibility to specify an audience for the session.
The following configuration parameters were affected:
cookie_lifetime to rolling_timeout
cookie_idletime to idling_timeout
cookie_samesite to cookie_same_site
cookie_httponly to cookie_http_only
cookie_discard to stale_ttl
Kong Gateway 3.1.x
Added the new configuration parameter cookie_persistent, which allows the
browser to persist cookies even if the browser is closed. This defaults to false,
which means cookies are not persisted across browser restarts.
Kong Gateway 2.7.x
Starting with Kong Gateway 188.8.131.52, if keyring encryption is enabled,
the config.secret parameter value will be encrypted.
