upgrade.jar

upgrade AM using a configuration file

upgrade.jar {options}

Description

This executable jar file, openam-upgrade-tool-14.1.3.4.jar, lets you perform a silent upgrade on a deployed AM server by applying settings from a configuration file or using arguments. This capability allows you to include the upgrade.jar from a command line or in an upgrade script.

Options

The following options are supported.

-f | --file configuration-file

Upgrade a deployed AM web application archive using the specified configuration file. Upgrade configuration files are described in the sections below. Also, you can specify the system properties on the command line, instead of using the configuration file. See Example 2 below.

--acceptLicense

Auto-accept the software license agreement and suppress the display of the licence acceptance screen to the user. If the configuration file contains the ACCEPT_LICENSES property, it will have precedence over the command-line option.

Upgrade Configuration File

Base your configuration on the sampleupgrade file delivered with AM, and using the hints in this section, or the comments included in the file.

Upgrade Properties
SERVER_URL

URL to the web container where AM runs, such as http://openam.example.com:8080.

DEPLOYMENT_URI

URI where AM is deployed on the web container, such as /openam.

ACCEPT_LICENSES

Optional boolean property that can be set to always auto-accept the software license agreement and suppress displaying the license acceptance screen to the user. A value of true auto-accepts the license; any other value will be assumed to equal false, resulting in the presentation of the license. Default value is false. This property takes precedence over the --acceptLicense option, which can also be passed in to the application with the openam-upgrade-tool-14.1.3.4.jar file.
