Update Assets Discovery and the Assets Discovery collector

Before you begin

  • You must have Jira Admin permissions as well as administrator permissions on your Windows or Linux system to install Assets Discovery.

  • Please make a backup of your Discovery folder to be on a safe side if something happens during the update process.

  • If you are using the Assets Discovery or Collector Tool on a Linux Environment please make sure that you have stopped configured cron tasks before updating

    *Only available by using the Discovery Tool on a Windows Environment.

The update process automatically stops the running Discovery or Collector Service(s) when running. After the update the Service(s) that has been stopped for the update process will be restarted.

To update Assets Discovery (incl. Collector) perform the following steps:

  1. Copy the new package (e.g. Discovery_x.x.x.zip) to the "update" folder to your Discovery folder on your system

  2. Run the update.exe at the Discovery-Folder

  3. You need to choose if you want to update your ObjectHashSettings.xml file (default is "No")

    1. If you didn't have made any changes to your ObjectHashSettings.xml file you should choose "Yes" to get updates (that doesn't happens often)

    2. If you had made changes you should use "No" and merge the settings manually.

Your existing configuration will be saved and restored after the update.
