By doing a second install using Normal level security, then comparing webapp settings, I have tracked down the cause of my problem.

My install was a Minimal security one, after which I changed the settings of the /csp/sys web app and its sub-apps /csp/sys/* by clearing the Unauthenticated checkbox and setting the Password one.

But it seems that unless I do the same for the /api/interop-editors webapp I get a Rule Editor authentication page which I am unable to get past, not even by entering the credentials of the same %All-role user I logged into /csp/sys (i.e. Portal) with.

As soon as I made the change to /api/interop-editors I was able to get into the new Rule Editor, seeing only a brief flash of its authentication paged.

Here are the tweaked Minimal-security settings that work for me (i.e. authentication required to access Portal, from where I can move without challenge into the new Rule Editor):

I've upgraded my small test project from 2022.2.0.368.0 to IRIS 2023. and I've discovered that the SQL execution time was much slower than expected.
Within this project I load the data using "LOAD DATA FROM FILE" sql statement and it looks like that this is taking up the time.
A "docker-compose build" with IRIS 2022.2.0.368.0 took about about 17 seconds on my machine, the same with IRIS 2023. took 300 seconds!
The image with IRIS 2022.2.0.368.0 is 2.87Gb and the image file with IRIS 2023. image is 3.21Gb.

This is the only change I've made

Any idea whats going on?


I'm not sure what the reason is but with 2023.1 there are some errors in %SQL_Diag.Result when loading data from my datasets. The errors are different from 2022.3.
After changing some columns in my data model from NOT NULLABLE to NULLABLE the errors are gone and the performance with IRIS 2023.1 is the same as with 2022.3
