DEVOPS-1618 Installing FME Server on Linux OS and configuring HTTPS using a self-signed certificate topic monitoring will not work. The recommended workaround is to use a valid certificate issued by a recognized certificate authority. Alternatively, you can set up FME Server to bypass the SSL configuration for the WebSocket service (used by topic monitoring) under System Configuration → Network & Email → Topic Monitoring, set the Internal WebSocket URL to ws://localhost:8078/websocket. 2022.0+ Unplanned
FMESERVER-18223 From the Run Workspace > Workspace Actions > Create Webhook, under the Parameters section of the Create Webhook page if there is a source file parameter, it is not possible to upload a file.

FMESERVER-19220 With the FMEServerNotifier, if you include \n in the JSON, the JSON will be Null on FME Server.

This has been fixed by FMEENGINE-74950. Please upgrade to FME Server 2022.2 and create the workspace in 2022.2.
Replace \n with <br> in a workspace before triggering the topic or use an HTTPCaller to push data to the topic. See /notifications/topics/< topic >/message in the API documentation. 2021.1.3+
FMESERVER-19159 In a Fault-Tolerant installation when the Core with the 'Active Job Router' fails, the remaining engines do not connect with the second Core Job Router. They will appear available in the Web UI but will not detect jobs in the queue for processing. This issue resolves itself after two hours. 

In fmeEngineConfig.txt set the RECEIVE_TIMEOUT directive to 90000. Save the file and restart FME Server to apply the change.

Setting this directive forces the Engine to terminate itself after it does not receive a translation request for the specified time, effectively breaking out of the hung state.

When creating a schedule, if a file parameter exists that has (1) “Items to Select” set to Geodatabase and (2) “Path Selection” set to Multiple Paths, the schedule will fail to be created and an error will be returned saying something like: “Unexpected value “[“\\\\mynetdir\\folder\\hello_world.gdb”]” for parameter “value,” expected scalar.” Automations and Server Apps are not affected.

Set the geodatabase source dataset parameter from Multiple Paths to Single Path in the Path Selection. Once this change is made in FME Form (Desktop), publish the workspace and test creating a schedule.

When running a workspace with an updated text file parameter that was uploaded as a temporary file, the job will not use the updated file. The old file is used and a is logged in the Catalina log. 

Use a different type of file (for example, csv) or rename the text file prior to uploading it 2022.0+ 2022.2+

When running a workspace with a geometry parameter within a parameter group, the job fails with a JSON syntax error: Unexpected character: 't'. One of the following characters was expected: '"', '}'

Move the geometry parameter outside of the parameter group. 2022.0+ 2023.0+

After creating a database connection (e.g. SQLite database connection using a database file in Resources) that users an uploaded file on FME Flow (Server), trying to run a workspace that uses this database connection results in the following error:

`SQLite Reader: Failed to open database '$(FME_SHAREDRESOURCE_TEMP)\databasejoiner.sqlite'. SQLite3 Engine error: `unable to open database file`

There are two workarounds available:

1. Upload the file (e.g. SQLite file) to Resources Data. 


2. Using the same database file on FME Form (Desktop), publish to FME Flow using the Embed Connection Parameter option

FMEFLOW-18574 Schedules repository selection and search is limited to first 100 repositories when creating or editing a schedule Create schedules through REST API calls 2022.0+ 2023.0+
When the FME Flow web UI is accessed via FQDN, SAML login attempt [ after typing in the IDP credentials and submitting] takes us back/loops to the IDP login prompt webpage. SAML works well after replacing the flow host FQDN with IP address. Reference the flow/server host with IP address instead of the FQDN [i.e. FME_SERVER _WEB_URL field in fmeServerConfig.txt and 
fmeServerWeb ApplicationConfig.txt]
Setup the SAML configuration with the IP address instead of the FQDN.

FMEFLOW-19917 Deleting the “fmeauthor” role causes FME Server login page to load with no username or password prompt. Loading the login page returns the response “Specified SAML configuration does not exist” . When deleting the default fmeauthor role i.e. deleting the corresponding entry from fme_role table, it causes the child record in fme_samlconfig to be deleted as well, effectively removing the only entry in the table. “fmeauthor” role is the default role assigned to the pre-existing SAML record. If upgrade is not possible, manually insert a new record in the “fme_samlconfig table” with values from another healthy FME  server’s database [would be the same values]. Also, replace the deleted role “fmeauthor”. 2022.2.1 2023.0
