Support Ticket IDs:


An exception happens in an installation with read-only files and directories if the directory bin/update does not exist, and a REST call is performed to http://localhost:8080/openidm/maintenance/update?_action=available, which occurs when checking for updates in the UI on the Configure System Preferences page / Update tab. While the exception is completely harmless it is good to avoid it.

curl \
 --header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin" \
 --header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin" \
 --header "Content-Type: application/json" \
 --request POST \

checked OK with OpenIDM version "6.0.0-SNAPSHOT" (revision: bac2833)
When there is no "update" folder, we don't get exception or error.
