Beta feature: Copy users from one user directory to another


  • Global New function to copy users and their group and group memberships between user directories. This function is powerful, and can copy users even if a directory is inactive. This way the users can be copied first, and then when ready, the new user directory can be promoted with all the users ready to go.
    This can be used in many migration situations where you need users and their group memberships to be avaliable in another user directory than earlier. For instance it can be used when phasing out using active directory and introducing Just-in-time provisioning to internal directory, or when phasing out just-in-time provisioning and introducing cloud user synchronization from SCIM.

Security Patch: stored XSS on group names and update npm library

Security patches

  • Stored xss via group names Stored XSS in Kantega SSO Enterprise via Group names lead attacker to elevate a privileged user account to System admin. When script injection is stored in group names under User Management > Groups, a Select / dropdown component used on the oidc/saml “Group Memberships” page, common “Disable traditional username/password login” page and kerberos “Disable Kerberos for some users ” page was susceptible to stored XSS. The vulnerability is considered of low severity, since the attacker already would need to have administrative access to the system.

    Thanks to Bug Bounty researcher UpdateLap for discovering this vulnerability.

  • Patch CVE-2022-25858 found in the webpack terser plugin

Bugfix backup of config in Windows and other improvements

Bug fixes

  • Backup & restore A change introduced in version 5.7 of Kantega SSO Enterprise made a subtle change to file handling, which broke the creation of a backup of config file on Windows servers, because of a file lock that occured only in Windows, and passed by undiscovered in Unix-based QA.


  • support debug information The Debug info text in the Support tab now contains information from the latest OIDC/SAML test logins, and such gives a more complete image of the instance without having to send several fragments from test pages in addition to the global Debug info text.

  • api tokens Fix debug log statement which had an inverted reasoning for blocking a request
