Upgrade Instructions

Preparation

  1. You must have a download of the new Kinetic Request CE 2.0.4 web archive (.war).  
  2. Update your DB schema for the keyspace used by Kinetic Request CE if upgrading from a version lower than 2.0.0. https://s3.amazonaws.com/kineticdata.com/downloads/kinetic-request-ce/2.0.0/schema.cql 

Upgrade

  1. Backup the existing web application directory (%TOMCAT%/webapps/kinetic).
  2. Deploy the Kinetic Request CE web archive (.war) file supplied by Kinetic Data support.
  3. Copy the following directories:
    1. %BACKUP%/kinetic/app/bundles to %TOMCAT%/webapps/kinetic/app
    2. %BACKUP%/kinetic/app/root-bundle to %TOMCAT%/webapps/kinetic/app
    3. %BACKUP%/kinetic/app/shared-bundles to %TOMCAT%/webapps/kinetic/app
    4. %BACKUP%/kinetic/WEB-INF/config to %TOMCAT%/webapps/kinetic/WEB-INF
  4. Copy any non-standard .jar files to the tomcat shared lib (this is not typical, and only needs to be done if you've added custom .jar files to the application):
    1. %BACKUP%/kinetic/WEB-INF/lib/... to %TOMCAT%/lib
  5. If SAML is being used (and if upgrading from a version lower than 2.0.0):
    1. Find the name of the IDP file by looking for the security.saml.idp.filebased.url value in the %BACKUP%/kinetic/WEB-INF/classes/security.%SPACE_SLUG%.properties file(s).
    2. Copy the IDP files from %BACKUP%/kinetic/WEB-INF/classes/... to %TOMCAT%/webapps/kinetic/WEB-INF/config
  6. Restart tomcat.
