We have completed upgrading the SSDS Service Impact Alert: As per our prior communications, this upgrade removed all existing data in the service. All Authorities, Containers and Entities will be deleted. User account, user ID’s, and passwords will be preserved. This is necessary due to the enhanced functionality we are providing. Special characters in SSDS User Ids are no longer supported (Special character this impacts: @). The ‘@’ character in the existing user ids will be replaced by an “_”. For example, user id “Joe@Business” will become “Joe_business”. While the “application/xml” content type will still be supported in the short term, we highly recommend that you migrate your applications to the new “application/x-ssds+xml” content type with this service update.
