Post upgrade procedures

Properties for managing the database connection pool, file handles, and the repository cache are set in the Management Console by the administrator (admin).

After upgrading to version 2020.1.0 or higher, the administrator must check the Spectrum Spatial property settings to ensure that they are up to date for new features. Spectrum Spatial maintains the settings from previous versions. As a result, some settings will not include new feature options.

To ensure your upgrade includes new properties and property settings:

  1. Open a web browser and go to http://server:port/managementconsole


    server is the IP address or hostname of your Spectrum Technology Platform server.

    port is the HTTP port used by Spectrum Technology Platform. The default is 8080.

  2. Log in using the admin account.
  3. From Resources, click Spatial.
  4. Expand each of the Java Properties, Environment Variables, or Process arguments lists and check for the settings listed below.
  5. To change the value of an existing property, click on the value and type your changes.

    To add a new field in the Java Properties list, click the Add button. This creates a new property field at the end of the Java Properties list. Enter the new property name, and then enter its value.

  6. Click Save.

Changes to these properties take effect immediately.
