Security Updates - High
AN-145504 - Critical
For security reasons, the Query DB Node smart service has been updated. Customers running the LOAD DATA INFILE command against a MySQL instance (only applicable to Configured Data Sources; not applicable to the Appian Cloud database) from a Query DB Node in a Process Model must set the conf.data.load.infile.paths custom property as a comma-separated list of file paths to whitelist the required directories. If the property is not set, any Process Model using this command will pause by exception at runtime. This command is generally used to periodically load data from files into the database, and so we expect that most customers will not have to take the required action described here.

This applies equally to uses of queryFilter in the queryentity, queryrecord, and queryProcessAnalytics functions.
