Bugs Fixed for 2018.11

  • An incorrect error message was returned when a blank password was specified in a password reset request. (OKTA-144982)
  • If administrators in an org with the Developer Console enabled used the Classic user interface instead, and had no apps assigned, they couldn't access their own user home page. (OKTA-152324)
  • For the System Log API, the displayName in the Target object was set to Unknown if the eventType was user.authentication.sso and if the value didn't exist in the profile editor. This behavior matches the behavior in /events. (OKTA-156484)
