November Update and Planned Down-Time

Don't look at me, just read the post!

Happy Holiday season to all!  I hope the winter is treating all of our Bungee Developers well.  Except of course, if you’re sitting in the northeast and are still without power.  In which case, how on earth are you reading this post!?

It’s time to update our users on a recent system update, as well as notify you of some planned down time for an upcoming system change.

November Update:

On November 24th we rolled out a small system update to address a couple of issues.:
4563:  eBay wsdl now imports properly
7893: HTTP is no longer stripping authentication from URLs
7889: HTTP PUTs are now authenticating correctly

Like I said, it was a small update, but the changes were needed.

Planned Down-time – Need to Log Off Dec. 22nd

We’ll be making an infrastructure update that will affect DNS resolution for the Bungee Builder starting at around 10PM PST Wed. December 22nd (that’s 1 AM EST Dec 23rd).  We don’t expect the outage to be for very long, but considering that the change is primarily related to DNS it may be longer than planned—that type of change occasionally has unpredictable results around the world.  As a precaution, we’d like to ask that all Bungee Developers log out of the system before that time so that the update can take place without any risk of a loss of your work.  It’s been several months since we’ve needed to do this kind of update, so we appreciate your patience.  If you have questions about the change or timing, please contact me directly with a comment to this post.

How will the DNS changes affect your applications?

There are a small number of users who will need to make their own infrastructure changes  as a result of this change.  Please pay special attention if you have whitelisted (either on your own firewall or through an ISP) the Bungee Connect Data Center IP address so that your application can connect to your own DB or REST/SOAP/SMTP service.  The IP address you whitelisted will no longer work and you’ll need to whitelist a new address.  The new address to whitelist is 174.129.251.38.
We’ll be updating our documentation accordingly.  Additionally, we’ll be contacting several developers personally to let them know that they need to update their infrastructure in order to continue functioning beyond the 22nd.  If you have questions about updating your whitelist, please contact me directly with a comment to this post, or post a topic in our GetSatisfaction.com portal.

As always we appreciate all the effort, patience, and feedback from our beta developers.
