ZIS Compliance FAQ
Why does the push mode agent keep reregistering and closing its server connection?
This is the opportunity cost so that the ZIS being tested can pass several of the tests (ZISSendsHTTP, ZISSends_TLS_1_0, ZISSends_SSL_3_0, ZISSendsEncryptionLevelX).

I am running into NullPointerExceptions creating a new conformance statement. Is there something I should try?
My agent is communicating with the test harness; however I am passing very few tests. What should I check first?
If a test appears as failed, can I “redeem myself” in the same test session and have the test change to passed?
I have an “agent receives” event/request/response test that is still listed as incomplete but I’m not receiving the event/request/response to pass the test. What’s wrong?
The test harness logs some of my HTTP messages as invalid due to an incorrect HTTP version and it’s not the version I’m sending, why? The messages tend to have via headers in them.
How do I connect my agent to the test harness with an encrypted connection?
If I support both SIF HTTPS and SIF HTTP, what order does the test harness test them in?
There a lot of “AgentSends” tests involving communications protocols and encryption levels. How do I pass all of these tests?
I can watch my agent request objects and get them back, yet the request tests are still pending, why?
First, the SIF 2 Enabled Application Product Standard requires that agents query for objects using 2.* for the SIF_Version tag.
Second, if your query included a SIF_ConditionGroup it may have resulted in an empty (no SIF_ObjectData) response. This will prevent passage of this test and you should contact SIF Compliance Support to have this evaluated and resolved.
I have passed all object response tests but the object request tests are pending, how can this be?
When does the test harness send out conditional requests containing SIF_ConditionGroup?
If I require data from the test harness to populate my database, can I assume the test harness will not request an object from me before I have all the data I require?
How do I pass an “agent responds to request for unsupported object” test?
How can agents support messages for other (potentially not yet created) versions of SIF?
