D5B013  updates  SAS Risk Governance Framework Mid-Tier 7.4

This hot fix requires post-installation steps that will update the web application deployed to your application server.

For more information about how to rebuild and redeploy Web Applications, see the SAS® 9.4 Intelligence Platform, Middle-Tier Administration Guide, Chapter 8 Administering SAS Web Applications.

  1. Rebuild Web Applications

    NOTE: In order for this step to execute correctly, the Metadata Server must be running.

    Select the appropriate product as the Web Application to Rebuild

  2. Re-start all SAS sessions, daemons, spawners and servers. For more information on the proper order for starting servers, go to SAS® 9.4 Intelligence Platform: System Administration Guide, Fourth Edition and review the section entitled "Starting, Stopping and Checking the Status of Servers".

  3. Redeploy Web Applications

    Redeploy the updated wars to the web application server.

  4. JVM option update

    To satisfy updates delivered in this hotfix you must specify the following JVM option in the setenv.bat or file.

    These files are found in the directory below:

    Update the file to include the JVM option:

  5. The web application server needs to be restarted, all SAS servers, from Server1_1 o ServerN_1.

After the web application servers are restarted, complete the following steps

  1. Use a WebDAV tool to sign in to the SAS Content Server so that you can edit or replace files in SAS Content Server folder.
    Copy the following files from <SASHOME>/SASRiskGovernanceFrameworkMidTier/7.4/Config/Deployment/Content/Preload/rgf-system/Scripts to the SAS Content Server, under the folder
    /SASContentServer/repository/default/sasdav/Products/SASRiskGovernanceFramework/RiskGovFrwkMid-Tier/rgf-system/Scripts, and replace any existing scripts.
    a. listCustomFields.groovy
    b. list_enums.groovy
    c. groovyEditor.groovy
    d. migrateattachments.groovy

  2. After deploying the hotfix, you must examine any RGF and content package groovy scripts or functions for references to the Apache Struts library. If the groovy scripts use the following Struts classes, you must replace them with the RGF classes indicated below:
    org.apache.struts.util.LabelValueBean ->
    org.apache.struts.action.ActionMessage ->
    org.apache.struts.action.ActionMessages ->

  3. If you have deployed the content package for Risk Stratum Core (RSC) v01.2020 or Stress Testing (STM) v09.2019, you must update the groovy function SaveRefreshBEPData.groovy after applying the HF. The RGF platform no longer allows direct access to the private “context” member variable in a groovy function's parent class. Perform the following steps:
    a. Locate the file SaveRefreshBEPData.groovy file on the SAS Content Server, under the folder

    b. Edit the file, and change the method setDefaults on line 216, so that it has two arguments, where the first one is “IContext context”:
          def setDefaults = {JSONObject bepData ->
          def setDefaults = { IContext context, JSONObject bepData ->

    c. Change the calls to setDefaults on lines 85 and 126 so that they passes the additional argument:

    d. Save the groovy file to the content server.

  4. After applying the hot fix, you must apply a change to the database schema using the patchdb tool.
    a. Change directories to <SASCONFIGDIR>/Lev1/Applications/SASRiskGovernanceFrameworkAdministrativeTools/dbscripts

    b. Run the patchdb utility for each installed content package (mrm, gcm, rmc, etc.), using the following command, and apply the patch:
    PostgreSQL, MSSQL: -c <content_id>
    Oracle: -c <content_id> <index_tablespace>
                where <index_tablespace> is the tablespace containing the RGF database indexes,
                for example RGFIDX_1

  5. If you are using Apache Solr 5.5.5, stop Solr and apply the updates to the managed-schema file.
    a. Change directories to <SOLRHOME>/bin and run the following command to stop SOLR.
        solr stop -p 8983

    b. Change directories to <SOLRHOME>/server/solr/rgf/conf and run the following to command to backup managed-schema
        cp managed-schema managed-schema.bak

    c. Copy the new managed-schema from <SASHOME> directory to the SOLR configuration directory.
        cp <SASHOME>/SASRiskGovernanceFrameworkMidTier/7.4/Config/Samples/Solr/managed-schema <SOLRHOME>/server/solr/rgf/conf

    d. Change directories to <SOLRHOME>/bin and run the following command to start SOLR.
        solr start -p 8983 -m <mem_size>

    e. Change directories to <SASCONFIGDIR>/Lev1/Applications/SASRiskGovernanceFrameworkAdministrativeTools/dbscripts and update the SOLR search index for each installed content package, where content_id is “mrm”, “gcm”, “rmc”, etc. -c <content_id>

  6. Restart SASServer8.

D5A009  updates  SAS Risk Governance Framework Server 7.4

  1. Update the SAS Localization Labels:
    Open a SAS session, paste the following code into the SAS Editor and run the code.
    %SMD2DS(DIR=<SASHOME>/SASFoundation/9.4/smd, BASENAME=rskmgtsvr, LOCALE=en, lib=SASHELP);
    *NOTE: Be sure to run the above SAS code in the same SAS session encoding that was used when the product was installed and configured.

  2. Copy the following files from <SASHOME> to <SASCONFIGDIR>
  3. Rename the "" in "<SASCONFIGDIR>/Lev1/AppData/SASRiskGovernanceFramework/Source/ucmacros"

  4. Replace tokens w\ directory paths:
    A) Using a text editor, replace the tokens in the files with the paths listed below:


    Token: @CNTLFILEDIR@
    Path: <SASCONFIGDIR>/Lev1/AppData/SASRiskGovernanceFramework/Source/misc/control

    B) Copy the lines below in "<SASCONFIGDIR>/Lev1/AppData/SASRiskGovernanceFramework/Source/ucmacros/"


    %let rskmgt_dbserver=%upcase(PostgreSQL);
    %let rskmgt_dbengine=%upcase(POSTGRES);
    %let rskmgt_dbName=rgfdbname;
    %let rskmgt_dbAuth=RGF_db_auth;
    %let rskmgt_dbport=1001;

    and overwrite the following lines in "<SASCONFIGDIR>/Lev1/AppData/SASRiskGovernanceFramework/Source/ucmacros/"

    %let rskmgt_dbserver=%upcase(@DBMS_TYPE@);
    %let rskmgt_dbengine=%upcase(@DBENGINE@);
    %let rskmgt_dbName=@DBIDENTIFIER@;
    %let rskmgt_dbAuth=@DBMS_AUTH@;
    %let rskmgt_dbServerNm=@DBMS_SERVER@;
    %let rskmgt_dbport=@DBMS_PORT@;

    C) Save the changes to the file.

    D) Rename
    to remove the ".orig" file suffix.
