    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Not a defect
    • Affects Version/s:

    • Labels:


      update.json in contains this:


      "origin": {
      "product": "OpenIDM",
      "version": [

      If we would like to support update directly from 5.5.x.x to, we need to update version within origin.



      Steps to reproduce:

      1. for example install OpenIDM 5.5.0 with a JDBC repo (tested on MySQL)
      2. start OpenIDM
      3. cp IDM-  openidm/bin/update/
      4. ./cli.sh update  --acceptLicense --user openidm-admin:openidm-admin --url http://localhost:8080/openidm IDM-

      Expected result: IDM is updated;

      Actual result: IDM is not updated, please look at output below.
