APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When dp:substring-base64() is applied to a non-base64
    string, and the result is used as input for another extension
    function, the appliance might restart.
    

Local fix

  • Use substring(...) instead of dp:substring-base64(...) where
    the input is not base64 encoded.
    

Problem summary

  • Affected is the use of dp:substring-base64() DataPower extension
     function.
    
    When applied to input not being base64 encoded and the
    result is used
    as input for another extension function, then the appliance
    might restart.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fix is to return empty string in case of dp:substring-base64()
    being applied to
    input not being base64 encoded.
    
    It is available in 7.0.0.14, 7.1.0.11, 7.2.0.8, 7.5.0.2 and
    7.5.1.2
