Developers notes

Developers Notes

  • Requires common playbook execution to update hosts
  • Required tomcat upgrade for webapps
  • Git tag with AMtech platform code - all tested passed: readyForProd20191015 (pending for logstash upgrade to be released)
  • If issue with java SSL certificates (registering an user) check that the file /etc/ssl/certs/java/cacerts contains the CA certificates of the system and it's in JKS format. Otherwise run the following workaoround:
    • sudo update-ca-certificates -f (should generate the content of the file)
    • cd /etc/ssl/certs/java && sudo mv cacerts cacerts.old && sudo keytool -importkeystore -destkeystore cacerts -deststoretype jks -srckeystore cacerts.old -srcstoretype pkcs12 (to change from pkcs12 to jks storetype, type can be checked with keytool -list -keystore cacerts | grep "Keystore type")
