8.4 Running the RIS Installer in Silent or Console Mode

This release ships with a separate installer that you can use to configure the Rest Information Services (RIS) facility. This facility configures the RIS.war file, which supports REST resources. The REST resources exposed through RIS make SOAP calls to gather information from various RBPM systems.

You can run the RIS installer in console or silent mode. Before running the installer, you need to edit the properties file for the RIS installer. Once you’ve edited the properties file, launch it with this command:

RisWarUpdate -i silent -f <path to the properties file> 

For example:

RisWarUpdate -i silent -f /home/jdoe/idm-install-files/silent.properties 

The installer requires the following information:

Here are the properties for an RIS install:
