BoKS Web Services Interface

Version 8.0.0.3

January 15, 2021

  • CAS-0010235962: Fixed an issue where the request timeout feature (added in WSI 8.0.0.1) did not result in a new connection to the admin server. This caused requests and responses to be out of sync after a request timeout had occurred for any request.
